Weddings

WELCOME AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

Luke Owens Music has assisted hundreds of couples from all over Australia in
celebrating their special day with the addition of live entertainment to their ceremony and/or reception.

This can be an exciting and (speaking from experience) stressful period for you both, so I have provided all of the information you need to know below. This is your wedding day and Luke Owens Music endeavors to make it the most special that it can be.

LET’S CATCH UP!

One of the first things I love to do is to meet with the couple whose wedding I will potentially be performing at. Due to my busy schedule, the best way for this to happen is during one of my public gigs where we can sit down and have a chat between sets; you’ll get to watch me play live and decide if I am the right person for you. If making it to a live performance isn’t a viable option for you, the next best thing to do is check out my videos or send an email to: info@lukeowensmusic.com

FAQ’S (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)

WHAT DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE FOR YOU ON THE DAY/NIGHT?

Depending on the time of day, usually, all I need is an undercover area with a flat surface and access to a powerpoint within 30m. Also, if you’re willing to offer me drinks and a meal, I will gratefully accept!

 

WHAT TIME WILL YOU START PLAYING?

This part is completely up to you! Depending on your run sheet, we can discuss where you would like my live sets to be played and also the times when you would like background music. My normal start for a wedding reception is 6.00pm and I play a minimum three hours and maximum five hours. However, we can customize my times to suit your wedding needs. 

 

CAN WE CHOOSE THE BACKGROUND MUSIC TO BE PLAYED BETWEEN SETS?

Certainly. If you send me a list two weeks prior to your event date, I will download them for you myself. Alternatively, you can create a playlist on your apple or android device and I will plug this in and play between my sets.

 

CAN WE USE YOUR P.A SYSTEM FOR SPEECHES?

Yes, you can. I will also provide the microphones for both your MC and your speech givers.

 


CAN A FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER PERFORM SOLO OR ALONGSIDE YOU?

What a fabulous addition that would be! This is your wedding and you get to make the day/evening what you wish. Whether it’s Grandpa Joe who wants to perform a song using my guitar or you have a friend whom you would like to perform with me, I can make this happen for you. Email me the details and where this will fit into the running sheet of the evening.

CAN YOU BE MC AT OUR WEDDING?

For an additional fee, I will be your official MC.

ENCORE, ENCORE!

A common theme for me over the years has been to finish my last set for the night, only to be enthusiastically asked: “Can you play an extra set”? Depending on the time and what my other commitments are, we can extend the duration of my playing time for a negotiable fee.

WE’RE ALL SET! CAN WE BOOK YOU IN?

Absolutely. Please fill in the website booking form and an invoice containing banking details will be sent to you for a 20% deposit.
