Great Experience!

Working with Aviento was a great experience! Vicki was very professional throughout the entire process and was always quick to respond to our questions.  She was really helpful with music suggestions but in no way made us feel pressured to choose those options.  I would highly recommend choosing Aviento as a music group for not only weddings but other events as well. My wedding planner even remarked on how professional they were!

Wow!

"What can I say apart from thank you so much for playing at our wedding? You were absolutely amazing and we could not have chosen anyone better to play for us. It truly was breathtaking when I heard the first bars of Pachelbel as I entered the church. That was my favourite part of the day and it is all thanks to you... all our family and friends said how wonderful you all were and that the choices of music played were brilliant."

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to book Aviento?

As one of Sydney’s most sought-after and trusted wedding music providers we are booked up to a year in advance. We recommend contacting us as soon as you have locked in a date and venue for your wedding.

Typically, what are the key moments of a wedding ceremony that require song choices?

Key ceremony songs are Processional, Signing of the Register and Recessional

We are organising a corporate function and would like music during drinks and canapes. What repertoire do you suggest?

Most commonly we start corporate functions with classical music, moving to light jazz or pop music later. In longer events we can co-ordinate our breaks with speeches if they are planned.

My wedding is being held at the beach. What happens if it rains?

All musicians working for Aviento have valuable instruments which cannot withstand exposure to harsh sun or any rain. At outdoor venues we ask you to provide a wet weather alternative and adequate shelter from sun or rain (e.g. large shade umbrella at the beach). Please refer to our PDF Aviento Booking Information for more information.

Does the booking time include your set up time?

We will arrive at an engagement approximately 20 minutes before the start time to set up. You do not need to include this in your booking time.

How long should I book for?

Our minimum booking time is 1 hour. We advise a 1.5 hour booking time for weddings, especially Catholic church ceremonies. Please read our PDF Aviento Wedding Guide for more information.

What will the musicians be wearing and where do they sit?

Aviento musicians are smartly dressed in black clothes. At weddings, they usually sit to the left of the altar in a church, or in an appropriate shady place if outdoors.

I'd like to have a singer at my wedding ceremony. Can you help?

We are very happy to book other instrumentalists to perform with us at your wedding. We have excellent contacts with Sydney's most experienced and respected performers. Please enquire for details.

How many musicians do I need?

We perform as a duo, trio or quartet. Choosing the best group for your event should be based on the number of guests and the size of the space where your event is taking place. We generally recommend a trio for medium size weddings (up to 50 people) and a quartet for larger events. A small number of songs are only available for quartet – please check if you have a particular request.

I would like you to perform a particular song which I don't see on your repertoire list. Can you play it?

Absolutely! We are always happy to try to perform new repertoire for our clients. Please talk to us about specific songs you would like to hear before making a booking with us. Please note that if an arrangement by a professional arranger is required there may be a charge.

How many pieces are required for a wedding ceremony and when are they played?

Music is usually played as the bride enters, during the signing of the register and as the couple depart. There are more opportunities for music during your ceremony. For more information please read our PDF Aviento Wedding Guide

Can you help me choose the music for my wedding ceremony?

Yes! Please read our PDF Aviento Wedding Guide where you will find advice for choosing the right music.
