It's unseasonally warm and the weekend weather was amazing for our 3 weddings.

At the Adelaide Botanic Garden, we played Jesu Joy, Concerning Hobbits and La Rejouissance for the ceremony.

At the Meeting Hall at the Adelaide Town Hall, the bride requested The Streets of Whiterun for the entry, Destiny 2 Journey for the signing and Bittersweet Symphony for the exit. (It was an unplugged ceremony so no photos).

And at St Patrick's Church, the bride chose A Thousand Years for her entry, Young and Beautiful for the signing and Halo for the exit.

We have lots of photos to share from this weekend's 4 weddings and a corporate function.

At Rostrevor College Chapel, the bride requested Tale as Old as Time, The Prayer and Marry You for the ceremony music.

At Sacred Heart College, we played Heaven, Can't Help Falling in Love With You, Can't Take My Eyes off You and I was made for loving you.

Burbrook Forest never disappoints and the lovely weather made for a perfect setting. The bride chose Clair de Lune, Ave Maria, River Flows in You, and Today (Smashing Pumpkins).

At the Adelaide Botanic Garden, we played all classical for the ceremony, and for the wedding pre-dinner drinks at the State Library of South Australia, we played all jazz.

Finally, we entertained hundreds of guests at the Adelaide Town Hall celebrating Barlow Shoes' 150 years of trading in Adelaide.

Congratulations to all of our brides and congratulations to Barlow on a magnificent milestone.

This weekend we managed to avoid the rain at our wedding at Glen Ewin Estate. The bride chose the Waltz from Sleeping Beauty for the entry, Clair de Lune and Kiss from a Rose for the signing, and Nothing Else Matters for the exit. We played modern covers for the pre-dinner drinks.

Mad March has started and this weekend we have 2 weddings and a performance.

Our 2 weddings today were in Sacred Heart Church in Semaphore and at Saltram Wine Estate & Salter's Restaurant. Both were unplugged ceremonies so there are no photos of the actual ceremony.

The bride at Sacred Heart chose A Thousand Years, Winter from The Four Seasons, Can't Help Falling in Love, I'm Yours and Can You Feel the Love Tonight for her mass. The newlyweds then left the church in a boat!

At Saltram Weddings, the bride chose Here Comes the Bride, Can You Feel the Love Tonight and I'm Yours for the ceremony.

Tomorrow we are performing on the iconic Popeye for Floating Melodies as part of the Fringe Festival.
