Whether you’re dreaming about music to walk down the aisle, planning your first dance, or imagining a dancefloor packed with all your favourite people in the world, picking the perfect wedding entertainment can seem like a daunting task.

Ahead of our Perth Wedding Fair next weekend, we’ve rounded up our top 4 types of wedding entertainment, along with our favourites from Western Australia. You can meet and experience all these featured musicians, along with over 60 of Perth’s most sought-after wedding suppliers, at One Fine Day Wedding Fair at Claremont Showgrounds next Sunday May 27th. Tickets available here!

1. The Soulful Soloist

If you’re looking for intimacy and total class, then you can’t go past a female soloist. Whether they’re singing original compositions, or covers from the likes of Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey, or Lauryn Hill, your guests will be talking about this for years to come. Add in a backing band, and you’ve got yourself entertainment that transitions seamlessly from the bridal entrance to the final dance.

Katherine Curnow is a highly sought-after Perth-based vocalist with over 20 years training and performance experience. An avid music lover of all genres, she specialises in soul, R&B, hip-hop, pop but has been known to delve into the world of French cabaret.

Her versatility transcends musical genres through her ability to sing in five languages (English, French, Spanish, Italian and Tagalog) and she is constantly experimenting with new sounds and incorporating a lot of electronic elements into her performances.

 

2. The Surprise and Delight

We all remember that moment in the film Love Actually when the hidden singers jump up out of nowhere with a rousing rendition of ‘All You Need Is Love’. It hits us in the feels every time.

 

 

While not everyone has a best-friend-harbouring-a-secret-crush that is willing to go to insane lengths to surprise us, Perth’s The Love Actually Experience are here to make your dreams a reality.

They usually arrive at the church/wedding venue about 1 hour before the ceremony to set up the discreet sound equipment before their professional secret singers pretend to be members of your wedding party along with other guests. The big reveal happens just as you’re walking down the aisle, and you can choose from ‘All You Need is Love’ or any song that is special to you. They can even recommend numbers that get the whole crowd singing along, like ‘Oh Happy Day’. Just make sure you’ve got someone ready to video!

3. The Dancefloor Specialists

Everyone loves a great wedding band. Whether it’s classic rock, epic sing-a-longs, 80s hits or modern dance bangers, your friends and family will thank you for the awesome entertainment and built-in full body workout.

The White Tree specialises in pulling together the best in live music, photography and film. They have the collective power to build incredible memories for you and your guests…long after you’ve downed your final champagne! Their young, passionate creatives are all incredibly talented, progressive and professional…and they’re also great fun to hang out with.

 

4. The Classic Hits

If your dream wedding features every one of your favourite songs, then you can’t go past a killer DJ. You can work with them to curate your ultimate playlist and then relax with the knowledge that there won’t be a dull moment all night.

Perth’s Soul Sound DJs believe the DJ is the most important element of your wedding reception. Music creates memories, and they aim to create the perfect soundtrack to your special day that will be remembered forever.

Their team consists of music connoisseurs who specialise in playing music with soul, whether you prefer R&B, Hiphop, Motown, Funk, Neo Soul, Disco, Smooth Grooves, Reggae or all of these combined, Soul Sound DJs have you covered.
