How did you meet?

During covid on social media after having spent years in each others orbit but never officially meeting. One beach walk later and the rest is history!

How did they propose?

On a cliff overlooking the beautiful Northern Beaches during a hike. We are always happiest when we are together by the ocean. He caught me by surprise, after spending the drive there explaining why we weren’t going to get engaged until the following year! When he dropped down to one knee, pulled out the most beautiful ring and asked me to marry him, I couldn’t believe it. It was the perfect moment.

How/why did you choose your venue/location to tie the knot?

We settled on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, as our happy place is by the water and we wanted to achieve that destination beach wedding feeling but somewhere close enough to home to make it more convenient for our guests. Snapperman Beach Reserve’s palm tree lined aisle & secluded, stunning waterfront location had us sold straight away for our ceremony. We then fell in love with Moby Dicks for our reception venue the moment we saw it. We loved the relaxed beachy vibe and the beautiful style that embodies the Boathouse name.

What was the inspiration behind your style/decor?

We wanted to achieve a look that really encapsulated the venues we had chosen and our style as a couple. Our favourite colour is blue so a blue and white colour scheme was a no brainer for us. We tried to combine a beachy-tropical vibe but with a sophisticated edge through our refined details. Our stunning florals by Wild Lotus and custom stationary by the brilliant Amber Made really helped tie our vision together.

What was the overall feeling of the wedding day?

Love! The day was a beautiful celebration of love between us as a couple and all of our amazing friends and family. I think the main feeling we felt on the day was a whole lot of love.

Any favourite moments of the wedding day?

Seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony! The moment where we locked eyes for the first time was just magic. Hearing each others personalised vows was also a big highlight and something we will never forget. We loved the little moments where it was just the two of us and we could soak it all in and celebrate our love story.  

Advice for future couples?

You do you! Don’t get caught up in tradition and doing things because you feel you have to. It’s a day to celebrate your love and what you both love most so make it the day of your dreams. We’re so grateful we took that approach and had the most magical day.

What was important to you when you were looking for your music vendor?

We wanted a one stop shop for our music, we felt this would help the day flow better and the process easier to manage. Acoustic live music for our ceremony and a DJ with some form of musician for our reception that could be organised together. We wanted to chose artists that spoke to us as a couple and catered to our music tastes. Event Entertainers provided this for us.

Why did you choose Event Entertainers and our Artists Jess & Matt for your wedding day entertainment?

Event Entertainers offered everything we were looking for. They were great communicators from day one and we knew that would help us to achieve our dream day, which they absolutely did!

We had seen Jess & Matt on social media and fell in love with them! Their voices are magic and you could tell they were a beautiful couple inside and out.

What songs (processional, recessional, first dance, etc) were the most important to you/did they hold any particular significance? How did you choose these songs?

The most important songs for us were the processional and recessional songs. These symbolised the moments we knew we would treasure the most, seeing each other for the first time on our wedding day and the moment we could celebrate officially being married! We knew immediately what songs we wanted for these moments, as they captured our love as a couple and bring back so many beautiful memories together for us both. Jess & Matt performed them so beautifully, we wish we could listen to them perform them again on repeat!

What was one of your favourite things about working with us?

The people! The Event Entertainers team are so fantastic to work with and we can’t recommend them more highly. They were so organised, took away all the stress and went above and beyond to ensure our music was everything we could’ve dreamed of and more.

Jess, Matt & Jimmy were such rays of sunshine and their talent is just exceptional. They made our milestone moments so magical and they created such a fun atmosphere on the day. The day ran so smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We can’t recommend them enough and wish we could have another wedding day so we can hear them play again!
