Che - byron bay weddings + The figtree

"The Onyx Duo " Tara-Lee & Jordane created the most magical atmosphere for Kate & Will's wedding. As guests arrived they could hear the enchanting melodies & it really created the scene for the ceremony under the fig tree. Classic, sophisticated yet relaxed & welcoming. Simply magical.
After the ceremony it was beautiful to hear classical takes on modern melodies & it really added to & completed the look & feel the couple were looking for. The view, olive trees, grape vines, cocktails, canapes & classical music, it could not have been a better fit. Thank you Tara-Lee & Jordane for your amazing performance, your energy, your grace & style & most importantly your music!!

The idea of a piano and cello duet was perfect for our vision of our ceremony. You were recommended by our wedding planner. The arrangements were lovely, creative and performed beautifully. The musicality was fantastic. It fitted perfectly with the aesthetic of our ceremony. The Onyx duo were a wonderful addition to our wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautiful music to accompany their ceremony and add a touch of class.

TONI + MICHAEL

Hiring The Onyx Duo for our wedding ceremony and canapés reception was the best decision we ever made. At our request they arranged and performed so beautifully "our song" that was playing when we first met. It was a dream come true walking down the aisle to their elegant performance. Our guests loved being serenaded by Tara-Lee & Jordane before the ceremony. Their diverse range of music for the canapés reception kept everyone entertained. Thank you so much ladies for your professionalism and magic!

We love to play acoustically especially in churches. However depending on the wedding venue and number of guests in attendance we require a sound system the price of which is included in each of our packages.  No extra costs for you.

During this time we ask you to complete the contract electronically and return it to us with a 30% non-refundable deposit. As soon as we receive BOTH the signed contract and the non-refundable deposit, we will email your booking confirmation. All remaining balances are kindly due for payment 30 days before your wedding date without exception. 

Due to the high volume of enquiries, please get in contact as soon as possible to avoid missing our on your date. We advise minimum of three to six months in advance. 

All wedding venues wish to keep on time as often the canapés or wedding reception can be held in different venues and other events providers are directly affected.

Our fee includes travelling up to 30km from Byron Bay. If your venue is further than 30km away from Byron Bay, a travel fee will apply which will be discussed prior to booking. Please provide this information on our enquiry page in order for us to provide you with a personalised quote

We will happily travel anywhere and everywhere for your wedding. We strongly recommend getting in contact as soon as possible at least three months before your wedding if your wedding is interstate. Please provide this information on our enquiry page in order for us to provide you with a personalised quote.

do you travel interstate?

We enjoy performing with guest singers and musicians. Since these tend to be unique to each wedding, please contact us with your specific requirements. Normally, these types of special performances require a rehearsal with the guest musician for which we do charge a fee. 

do you accompany guest singers OR other musicians?

We enjoy playing for outdoor weddings. Our only concerns are the safety of our instruments. Our instruments must avoid direct exposure to the sun as this causes the instruments to warp. For this reason, we require complete shade while using our instruments outdoors. We request umbrellas are provided for us to perform under.  We regret that we cannot perform in the rain. Jordane performs on a digital piano and experience shows electricity and rain are not good friends! 
Tara-Lee's very expensive cello is made of wood and cannot be exposed to direct rain or very high humidity as it will cause it to warp. Trust us you do not want that invoice! We regret that we cannot be responsible for weather related cancellations. All remaining balances are due and must be paid. 

do you play for outdoor weddings?

Everyone has THEIR song. The song that was playing for your first kiss, your first date or the first time you said I love you. If there is a song you’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle to that is not on our song list, at an additional cost, we can do a custom cello and piano song arrangement for up to 2 songs for any of your extra special moments. 

can you learn a new song for our wedding? 

We will arrive 90 minutes before your ceremony starts, leaving your wedding planner/celebrant plenty of opportunity to speak with us about cues and any additional final details. We provide everything including a sound system which is included in the price of each wedding package.
