Beth and Tully were married at Park Hyatt Melbourne. We were honoured to be invited to their wedding.
The ceremony took place in the courtyard at the hotel, and Beth chose Shower by Becky G as her procession song (there’s a story behind this but it’s a secret), which we performed as an acoustic duo while the brilliant Andrew Redman handled the legalities.
Later for the reception we switched over to DJ. The room at the Park Hyatt is seriously impressive, and although it was a small wedding in a big room it still felt intimate. Beth and Tully struck just the right note: casual, family atmosphere with minimal formalities. They love their soul and RnB, and for the first dance they chose These Arms of Mine by Otis Redding (a favourite of mine too). Although choreography can be cool, sometimes it’s nice to see a first dance that isn’t a rehearsed spectacle, and in this case it made for a beautiful, natural moment. Then it was time for everyone else to hit the dancefloor, and we witnessed some pretty slick moves, especially from a couple of the older male guests.
It was a thrill to learn later that Beth and Tully’s wedding was featured in Ever After Magazine. You can read it here.
