We are a collection of Australia's busiest and best, multiple award winning, wedding duos. We can cater to all sizes and styles of weddings.
Walk down the aisle to our beautiful acoustic version of your 'must have' song, then kick the party into top gear and get the dance floor pumping with our full band sound to fully produced backing tracks. It's a big band sound for a small band budget!

We liasie with your celebrant or other marriage officiater to discuss and understand the clear cue for us to start THAT song for the aisle walk. We also play your chosen songs while signing the marriage certificate and as you walk back down the aisle as newlyweds. Then, we move our portable gear to the canapes location and get started on our next batch of acoustic ear worms!

What you’ll love about working with Something Borrowed for your wedding:
- Something Borrowed began as just one duo. We became so busy we had to take on new duos. However, we were determined to not become just an agency with a tonne of duos doing their own thing. We have our formula and we feel it creates the best, most memorable wedding entertainment experience there is. From first email until your farewell circle. Yes, each duo has their own idiosyncrasies but you can rest assured whatever duo you go for, the service and entertainment will be of the highest standard.
- We have won Australian Bridal Industry Awards for best reception music and best ceremony music for the last 4 years running, as voted by brides.
- We have been in the wedding game for over 10 years, we absolutely love what we do... and it shows. This is why we strive so hard to make your day perfect!

- We liase back and forward with you until we have every detail of every song choice... i.e The aisle walk, signging the marriage cert, recessional walk, bridal party entrance, first dance, parent dance...etc. Nothing is left to guess work.
