Paul Graham and Rebecca Guile 2nd January 2010

by The Wedding Music Planner

On the 2nd of January 2010 Paul Graham married the love of his life, Rebecca Guile. Surrounded by family and friends, they publicly declared their love for each other and their commitment to spend the rest of their lives as husband and wife in the picturesque setting overlooking the Swan River in Bishop Road Reserve, Dalkeith, Western Australia.

Paul and Rebecca both desired their ceremony to be special, a reflection and celebration of the commencement of their lives together as husband and wife. Their ceremony, celebrated by ….. showed a great sensitivity to their individual personalities as well as highlighted their love for each other. I met with Paul and Rebecca on two separate occasions to plan out musically what would provide the ideal ambience and fulfil their vision, combining both tradition with a twist of modern and contemporary. We decided on a classical ensemble to perform at the ceremony, Rebecca walking down a satin runway lined with rose petals to an arrangement of the song  “All I Want Is You” by U2. The classical ensemble, consisting of flute, violin and cello, provided the perfect atmosphere for the day, their music was played professionally and with great sensitivity and added an extra layer of sophistication to the day.

Paul and Rebecca then celebrated their reception at Mosmans Restaurant in Mosman Park, Western Australia. Located on the banks of the Swan River in Mosman Park this restaurant was the perfect setting to celebrate their first meal as husband and wife with their family and friends.

Paul and Rebecca has the vision for their reception of having a memorable atmosphere which complemented the part of the night they were in. They had had specific requests for the bridal party entrance and the beginning of speeches. Paul and Rebecca also wanted background music to encourage people to talk throughout dinner and then, after all the formalities, entertainment that could play all the wedding classic hits to get the dance floor moving. I organised for them Domenic Zurzolo, a DJ / guitarist with over 20 years experience in the music industry. He performed an acoustic guitar set throughout dinner across styles including jazz, bossa nova, grooves and rock classics, always at a volume that was conducive to people eating. Paul and Rebecca had originally thought that only recorded music would be used in this part of the night, they were pleasantly surprised and very happy with the atmosphere that was created, it gave the whole first part of the evening great atmosphere.

At the conclusion of the speeches the DJ opened up the dance floor with the bridal dance, Paul and Rebecca requested “Have I Told You Lately”, after some slow songs to set the romantic mood the floor really got going with great song after great song. A knowledge of watching the crowd and being able to identify songs that they all liked was shown throughout the entire night. The evening finished with the bride and groom being carried out on people’s shoulders to the song “I Have A Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.

Paul an Rebecca both work full time and not knowing any musicians or where to go to get excellent quality music and service they asked for my help. They wanted everything perfect. As Paul said:

“What can I say, the best day of our lives…the music was so AMAZING
