Sharleen & Tom’s Mirra wedding

i had the great pleasure of djing sharleen & tom’s wedding reception at this rad little venue in brisbane called mirra.  these guys are style, class and good taste personified – their wedding was just amazing.
you know what else was amazing? their taste in music (crunked up), their hilarious video presentation (you had to be there, seriously) and their photographer (anthony hoang).  just a whole lot of amazing going on.
get the picture? check out the photos from the day.

Aaron was amazing and we are so happy to hear that he also had a blast. We had guests come up to us to say they loved the music. The music played during the dinner was very us and I’m so glad it wasn’t the typical commercial radio top 40 hits.

Aaron had his finger on the pulse of the crowd the whole time and knew exactly what to play to get them going.  The fact that he got the crowd to dance to the very last song speaks volumes about his awesomeness and talents.

So thank you thank you thank you! Even with the rainy weather, everything including the little hiccups and awkwardness (which was very us) came together all in the end and we had one of the BEST NIGHTS EVER!  

It was such a fun wedding and we had lots of guests also mention that was one of the best, most fun weddings they’ve ever attended.

Thanks for being part of our big day and making it as special as it was 🙂

Aaron, you are a master of your craft and we are so glad we chose to go with Cut a Rug!

Bianca & Travis Maleny Manor wedding

bianca and travis got hitched at maleny manor, so you just know it was an unforgettable day for everyone there.

these guys were such a delight – i was blown away by their hospitality, especially bianca’s mum and dad who are the nicest people you could hope to meet. i was mc and dj for the night, and had a great time partying with these guys, their awesome family and rad friends. i love my rnb so i was pretty stoked when the playlist came through jam packed with a whole stack of killer urban joints. however, in an interesting (and fun) twist, the chicken dance ended up being the track of the night.  even though there’s no pics of the d-floor action (sad face) we wanted to feature this wedding because we just love these guys so much (happy face).

calli b photography took the pics featured below – enjoy.

Dear Aaron and Mel

We need to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for delivering the most wonderful service on Saturday. Everything was so spot on; the entire day was seamless. You are an amazing MC and an absurdly talented DJ.

So many guests approached us on Saturday to ask who you were and how we found you. We feel so lucky that we did. From walking down the aisle to the last dance of the night – the day was perfect.

You are so professional, polite, talented, sincere and still totally cool haha we had the most fun we’ve ever had on Saturday and I’m so happy to say that a lot of that is because of you. Thank you again.

Matt & Khela at Brisbane Powerhouse

matt & khela are dream clients of the highest order.  beautiful, stylish, lovely – people who really know how to have fun!  these guys introduced me to some awesome music that i’d never heard of and even went as far as to send me a sealed debut Gary Clarke double LP (we’re talking vinyl) as a thank you.
they had their reception at the über cool brisbane powerhouse.  these guys, their friends, and family looked a million bucks and partied like rock stars as you’ll see in the ahh-mazing photos below by Stewart Ross.

Cut a Rug is one hell of a team!  Right from the get go everything was friendly but still the right amount of professional.  

Nothing was too hard or too much trouble, the music selection was exactly what we wanted, it suited our wedding perfectly!  

We couldn’t be happier and we would definitely recommend Cut a Rug to anyone.

Kristy & Pete’s Bistro C wedding


pete & kristy had a very specific vision for how their reception was going to go down music wise.  i worked closely with pete in the lead up and together we formulated one of the best playlists i’ve seen…..or heard.  cocktails featured a very cool selection of jjj style tunes and dinner was all about 80s and 90s classics – no wedding schmaltz here!  the dance party featured a bunch of hand picked tunes that all meant something to the happy couple and their awesome friends and family. these guys got completely rambunctious and danced til the very end of the night. bistro c in noosa turned it on big time and even let us get an extra track or two in past curfew.  katie takes a picture shot the whole thing – check out her amazing work below. it’s pretty safe to say that i wanna play this wedding again, it was just soooo much fun.

I can’t tell you how many compliments we got about the music and general vibe from the dance floor.  I think it was easily the best dance floor from the dozen or so weddings we have been to and the way you mixed all the tracks together was spot on.  Thanks heaps for your patience and professionalism.

Music is a huge passion of mine and it was such a highlight of the whole day to see everyone responding like that to the playlist.  Also want to compliment your judgement for dropping ‘Easy’ by Groove Armada as the bonus track – that call was spot on, our mates really lose it when that track comes on!

You impressed me with your professionalism & the way you delivered on the night.

Travis & Viv’s Mango Hill Farm wedding

Travis and Viv held their gorgeous wedding at Mango Hill Farm.  It was the perfect venue for their outdoors, vintage-styled wedding.

We were given a great playlist of songs to draw from with a real ‘world music’ vibe.  A lot of friends and family travelled long distances (from South Africa, London and Hong Kong) and the music chosen reflected that.  There was plenty of traditional South African music mixed up with Ibiza chill during dinner, with some old skool Mr. Scruff, Paolo Nutini and Paul Simon getting things moving on the dance floor  later on.  There was also a nod to the traditional land owners by having a didgeridoo artist perform during the signing of the registry and after the ceremony.

Apart from being some of the nicest people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, Travis and Viv have a wedding decor hire business.  They supplied all the fantastic furniture, decorations – even the dance floor – for their wedding and we love the result.

Patrick & Katie’s Maleny Manor wedding


this wedding featured the most awesome dance party that i’ve witnessed in a long time.

patrick and katie hired a photo booth (from Artography) which came with a whole bunch of  props that they and their guests took full advantage of.

throughout the night, the dance floor was heaving with party people sportin  hats, wigs, animal masks and some very enthusiastic dancing – there was even a spontaneous conga line and so much bouncing that the floor shook.

these guys know how to party – i captured a couple of moments on the night and have uploaded the videos, check them out.

more shenanigans below, photos courtesy of Artography:

Thanks for your testimonial, guys – you rock!

Cut a Rug performed at our wedding and did a fantastic job!  We had pretty specific music taste and Aaron delivered everything we wanted.  Great to deal with in the lead up to the event and all of the equipment was top quality and looked great.

Everyone had an amazing time at our wedding and commented how good the music was and it showed as all of our guests were out of their chairs and on the dance floor the whole night!
