James and Josie Heath 19th December 2009

by The Wedding Music Planner

On the 19th of December 2009 James and Josie celebrated their wedding ceremony with family and friends at Holy Rosary Catholic church in Nedlands Western Australia. James and Josie were both working overseas prior to and during their engagement posing the necessity to organise a large amount of their wedding via phone and email with a meeting scheduled for their visit to Perth to see family and friends. The nature of their work on private cruise ships made it vitally important for regular communication to be kept up to ensure the success of the wedding with minimum stress for all people involved.

The music, organized by Simon Montgomery through the Wedding Music Planner, was a small choir who provided the perfect atmosphere to the occasion. The entrance song, “Laudate Dominum” – Mozart, was sung with a solo vocalist for the brides maid entrance with the climax of the song being the entrance of the bride with the entire choir joining in full and enthusiastic voice.

James and Josie had also requested that Schubert’s “Ave Maria” be sung for the signing of the registry and for the processional hymn the song “O Happy Days” – Hawkins.

James and Josie had requested that the wedding ceremony be a celebration of their love for each other and also have respect for the traditional beliefs and values of the Catholic church, the song repertoire selection and use of a small choir achieved this perfectly with elegance and beauty.

James and Josie had their reception at the Old Swan Brewery on Mounts Bay Road in Crawley, Western Australia. The early evening reception began with 2 hours of canapes with the entertainment being provided by the Simon Montgomery trio featuring Ben Hall. This jazz trio, featuring the vocals of Ben Hall, performed many well known jazz standards from a repertoire including songs made famous by Sinatra, Martin, Baker and more recently by the likes of Michael Buble.

Not too overpowering in volume, the trio provided the ideal ambience bringing a degree of sophistication and class as people enjoyed good food, sipped on their champagne or drank one of the boutique beers available on tap all whilst watching the sunset on the Swan River.
