Ceremony Specialist - live looping wedding violinist performs your favourite songs as you walk down the aisle with a modern twist. Perfect for a classy and contemporary wedding.

I love playing weddings! There is nothing better than seeing the bride smile as she walks down the aisle to her favourite song being played on my violin. 

I've played the violin and guitar since I was 6 and I love it. I love it so much I decided to share my passion for music not only with the next generation of musicians in the classroom, but also on the streets all over the world and of course on your special day. In fact, a number of the weddings I've played are a result of couples watching me busking on the street!

My performance is totally unique - consisting of violin, guitar and percussion, I combine the instruments using a loopstation to create beautiful semi-classical and upbeat versions of modern songs. 

With a contemporary repertoire of over 4 hours, I can entertain your guests as you arrive, play your favourite songs for the bridal entry, signing of the register and as you leave the ceremony a married couple. Then, as you move towards the reception I can entertain during canapes or into the night as you require; or if you simply want a playlist then I can provide a sound system and microphones for speeches.

Wherever you are getting married, I've got you covered! I've played Weddings on beaches, in parks, churches, gardens; even in a flower pot shop! 

With packages starting at $500, I can tailor the performance to your needs and make your day even more special.




Questions and Answers

Can I choose the songs you play?

Lawrence Gratton

Absolutely! I've got a great wedding repertoire, however if you have any requests then I can perform the exact song you want to walk down the aisle. 

Are you able to perform outdoors?

Lawrence Gratton

As long as the weather is dry I can perform outdoors; just make sure there is a wet weather contingency! 

I also have my own power supply so I can be positioned anywhere - perfect for those location ceremonies.

What other services do you provide?

Lawrence Gratton

I can provide the PA system for your wedding, including wireless microphone for speeches and DJ services for the evening. 

How far do you travel?

Lawrence Gratton

I'm based in Gold Coast so I'm perfectly placed for weddings up to Brisbane and Gold Coast Hinterland and Scenic Rim; down to Northern Rivers, Tweed Valley or down to Byron Bay. I'm happy to travel further but I do account for travel costs in my quotes.

Lawrence is an extremely talented musician and a genuinely nice person. We listened to a lot of his music on Youtube and the melodies are really catchy. He was able to use our selected song for our wedding that was not already in his repertoire and adapt it to be the perfect length for the aisle that we had. I regret not having Lawrence play at the wedding for much longer. However long you might think you need him - book an extra 30-60min at least. You and your guests will really love hearing his tunes.

Lawrence played at our wedding at the end of January and only one word can describe his performance. AMAZING! guests could not stop talking about his performance and thought he was the perfect choice for a perfect day. Couldn't thank him enough for his services. I will be hiring him in future for all big events if he isn't booked for years ahead because he should be!.

Hi Steven, Thank you so much for your kind words. I had such good fun at your wedding; it was heartwarming to be fully welcomed by your friends and family and be part of your special day. Best of luck to you both in the future :)

We had Lawrence playing music at our wedding reception (before, during and after). Without a doubt, it was the best decision we could have made. Lawrence went above and beyond (we had some delays on the day), he arrive hours before the reception to ensure everything goes smooth and he has created a fantastic atmosphere, just next level. We got lots of compliments about him and his music. Lawrence is very professional, highly talented and very easy to communicate/ coordinate with. Would highly recommend!

HI Kate, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your day. After previous cancellations due to COVID I'm so glad you made this happen. The wedding was beautiful - how gorgeous was that venue?! I'm so glad you enjoyed the music. Best of luck to you both in the future!

Lawrence was AMAZING!!! We had him playing at our wedding ceremony in the garden and his beautiful music really set the scene. He was so professional and very easy to communicate and accomodating with the music we wanted to have played at the wedding. I recommend him to anyone that is looking to get married and have some beautiful live music being played while you walk down the aisle. Thanks again Lawrence it was wonderful! Jess & Ryan Rodgers

Lawrence is an amazing musician and it was an absolute delight to have him play at my wedding! He knows how to read the audience and the moment to create a sensationally beautiful, perfect atmosphere. 100% highly recommend Lawrence to perform at your special day

Just recently my partner and I renewed our vows with each other after 22 years of marriage. We asked Lawrence Gratton Music to accompany the event with his amazing musical talents. Lawrence is amazing under high pressure, and understands the emotional importance of the event. We fully trusted him to choose and play the songs that were important to us, and he just has an amazing way of knowing what is suitable and connecting love through music. He is super polite and considerate to the venue operators as well which always helps when running a wedding event. We highly recommend Lawrence Gratton Music for all your wedding musical love and inspiration.

Thank you so much Mem. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your wedding renewal with your husband Troy, and I wish you both a further 22 years (and more) of laughter and love.

Hi Jo, thank you so much! Your wedding was beautiful - thank you for asking me to be a part of it. Best of luck for the future!

Before the wedding we both sat down and had a chat about what was the best use of our budget... Getting Lawrence to perform was at the top of both our lists. Not only was he great in the lead up (always went above and beyond, super friendly) he absolutely nailed it on the day - we got so many compliments! I think the thing that really set him apart was his looping style of playing - you get an ensemble sound for the price of a soloist, AND it's really entertaining! Nothing worse than standing around being bored before the ceremony but Lawrence was great entertainment and really lifted the atmosphere. He was incredible and we cannot recommend him enough. (Sorry if this sounds like an infomercial - but he actually is just that good). :-)

Thanks Natalie - I’m so glad you invited me to be a part of your day :)

We hired Lawrence to play at our wedding, and couldn’t be happier with how everything went. Lawrence played a classical set for us for our wedding ceremony, and also played a more modern set for the following mornings party. Lawrence was professional throughout. He gave us the option of requesting certain songs from his catalogue for our ceremony, or having the song choices as a surprise. I opted for the latter, and the songs chosen were perfect in setting the right tone. We knew our guests would be feeling a little “delicate” the morning after the wedding, so Lawrence’s morning set was just what we all needed to start off a second day of celebrations! Relaxing but also upbeat loop guitar and violin. Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much! It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your day. I loved the 2-day festival feel and I had fun playing for the "Hangover Breakfast" the next morning. Congratulations to both of you!
