Frequently Asked Questions

How does the booking process work?
First we get you to fill in our contact form and then we’ll get back to you with a proposal. If that sounds good to you, we ask for a 20% deposit and ask you to sign our agreement. Then that date is exclusively yours!

How far in advance do you book out?
The majority of our wedding clients book our packages around 12 months in advance. Maple Creek is usually completely booked out 4 months in advance. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Do I get to choose my songs?
Maple Creek learns your special moment songs, these include your: processional, recessional, signing of the register and first dance.
Your dinner music and your dance music at your reception is drawn from our song lists.

Can I see you perform live?
Definitely! The best way to determine if we’re the right fit is to watch our duo or band live at one of our public showcases/gigs. We’re really happy to chat with you face to face while you’re there about your wedding music vision as well.

Do we meet with you before our wedding?
2 months before your wedding, Cassie will be in contact to organise a date to catch up and go over the final details and song choices. Coffee is on us 🙂

How do my DJ song choices work?
Cassie has had a lot of experience as a wedding DJ in Sydney and has a great idea of what songs work and don’t work and what songs to play for different types of crowds. You can work together with Cassie to include certain songs in the mix and also blacklist songs you definitely don’t want.

We have a choreographed first dance. Can we have a recording to practice to?
If you would like a recording of your first dance to rehearse to, we’re happy to do this for you. Blake is also a skilled audio engineer and can produce a commercial quality track for you – exactly the way it will sound on the day!
