Wedding Ceremony Music by Something Borrowed
Exquisite. Emotional. Unforgettable.
We’re renowned for our exquisite music for wedding ceremonies
We transform services into celebrations! Our wedding ceremony music inspires smiles, laughter, tears and goose bumps. Our music also delicately sets the tone for your union, creating feelings and emotions that will last a lifetime.
Here’s just one of many wedding ceremony music testimonials:
“I just wanted to send on our thanks again to the violinist for playing at our wedding. I’m sorry I didn’t actually get more of a chance to chat with her on the day. I loved the music, it really set the atmosphere and I have to admit I was almost lost for breath as I was about to walk down the aisle. Myself and Wayne had talked about getting emotional thinking about that particular song and that was definitely the case for me on the day. Thanks so much! Misty & Wayne, Bathers’ Pavilion Balmoral

“Just a quick thank you for providing the music at our wedding. The music was fantastic, I was incredibly impressed!! I had so many comments from guests about how great the music was. Your violin at the ceremony was beautiful, and the band at the reception was great too. They had everyone up and dancing through all their sets, they were very professional and very friendly to all our guests. You and your team of musicians really created an amazing mood for us and we were able to have an incredible evening. Thank you so much and I will sing your praises to everyone I know.”

“Thank you so much for last night, we really do appreciate it. We got ushered out and I never got to thank you as I wanted to. We were delighted with the music and am so glad to have trusted your expertise to do live music and then DJ. Song selection was top notch, dance floor was rocking. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the evening so special.”

“I just wanted to send you a small note to say congratulations and a huge thank you for your service and collaboration for the wonderful wedding of Kate & Guy. It was utterly terrific to be able to do an event with you and I know that the couple were tickled pink with your service, professionalism and overall performance on the day. It has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure working with you in the lead-up to the event and on the day and I truly hope that I am fortunate enough to be on board for many more events with you to come in the future. Many thanks again for your time, help, co-operation and collaboration. It was such a fun & successful event (albeit very VERY wet!) and all the best for the remainder of your season!”

“It was a pleasure working with you for Franky & Olivia’s wedding on the weekend. You made the process simple and I (and the client) couldn’t be happier with the beautiful music by you at the ceremony & Mike at the reception. Take care & I hope to work with you again soon.””
Keryn, Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens
“We’re going to send out our proper thank you’s after our honeymoon, but I just had to tell you that your strings group, and that magnificent Soprano, were my favourite parts of my wedding! I’m told that the singer went out of her way to help my sister with a decorations problem, for which I’m so grateful. And way she sung, and the way you all played was just so, so, special! Thank you very much!”
Cate, Monte Chapel Wedding Ceremony
“I didn’t get a chance to speak to you after my wedding. I just wanted to send you and your band for the night an email to thank you for such a wonderful night! Numerous guests came up to me to comment on the wonderful band, and the songs you played were just perfect! Thank you so much for the wonderful support before and during the wedding, having you guys definitely made a huge difference for the day.”
Li & Wen, Star Room Darling Harbour
“On behalf of my wife and I, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and Mike for an exceptional performance at our wedding and superb customer service from beginning to end. As busy professionals, with very limited spare time, to have been able to coordinate the day in an efficient manner without even meeting in advance was priceless for us. I would offer you and your business all the luck for the future but with such a great product and your customer centric values you don’t need any luck. Attached are a couple of pics from the guests and if you would like, when we get the professional pics through I will happily send you a couple.”
Sam & Sarah, Central Coast Wedding
“I am finally back from my honeymoon and I just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for the absolutely stunning job you did for our wedding. Everything was perfect and everyone commented on your performance. Please also pass on my sincere thanks to Tim. Matthew and I really appreciate the beautiful work- we were both blown away with the day. Thank you again for the use of your microphone and for allowing me to sing. Thank you again and I will be recommending you to everyone I know for any future events.”
Ally and Matt, Dunbar House
“Just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the band that played at our reception. Everyone had a great time and was up and dancing- my father in law even hot up and played air guitar. Thanks for everything! Monika.”
