Planning the best moments for your most treasured day
A Melbourne based entertainment, photography and videography business with an unending love for our couples, giving you your perfect day. Absolutely nothing gets us as excited as a bride and groom getting married. We pride ourselves on our ability to create unforgettable events, supporting you every step of the way when it comes to tunes, and capturing all the moments. We have a specialised crew who always provide a damn good time.
Bespoke wedding entertainment for your style!
Whether you’re planning an intimate soiree or a party to raise the roof, we know how important it is to have your wedding entertainment complement your day, from start to finish. We have incredible musicians covering a range of genres (from soul and R&B to pop, jazz and much more), and each brings their unique vibe and sound to help create an incredible atmosphere all day long. For your ceremony, canapé hour and reception you can select and combine from Hey Jack’s talented Melbourne wedding entertainers, available as:
Experience the magic of live entertainment
Nothing quite compares to the atmosphere, electric energy, spontaneity and excitement of live music at a wedding. You’ll be able to create your own dream wedding entertainment for your Melbourne wedding by customising elements with our team and musicians. This includes incredible showmanship, immersive interaction with you and your guests, special song requests to elevate special moments (think first dance and reception entrance), and more!
Maybe you want a soulful duo to serenade you down the aisle, but a big wedding band party atmosphere (with some sax appeal) to heat up the dancefloor later – can do! The choice is yours and the sky is the limit here! We’ll bring the music, you bring the moves, and the memories are guaranteed!
DJ + LIVE PERFORMERS
DJ wedding entertainment that creates a party atmosphere
Ready to create a party? These acts know how to bring the energy and good vibes with songs you know and love! Our professional wedding DJ reads the room to help entice your guests to the dancefloor to keep the party pumping!
Why not turn things up a notch and combine the best of both worlds with your DJ spinning beats while live musicians complement each song and create a captivating show on the stage.
Wedding films that hit you in the feels
Most couples tell us they were so full of adrenaline and having so (SO) much fun on their wedding day, it felt like it went by in flash. You might miss seeing your partner getting ready and waiting to see you at the aisle, or the moment where your Dad tried to breakdance on the day.
Our professional team of wedding videographers create a special cinematic style keepsake and memento you can watch after the big day and share with friends and fam, or save for your anniversaries and milestones. We’ll be secret ninjas on hand to capture the big things, little things and everything in between so you can relive your incredible day whenever, and wherever you want (just keep a box of tissues nearby!).
Wedding photography for every smile, tear & magical moment
Remember and relive all the best bits from your wedding day through the special images you were a part of (and all the fun and surprising ones you didn’t even know were being taken)! Even though your mate just got a new DSLR camera, it takes a professional team to capture every heartful, emotional, fun and joyful moment in HD quality (and edited in-house).
Don’t worry we won’t ask you to awkwardly stand near a tree or skip through a field (unless you want to!) – just live in the moment, have the time of your life and we’ll show you how amazing your energy and love looks on camera.
Wedding tips, inspo, planning & more in our Hey Jack journal
We’ve curated a live journal full of wedding planning tips to help you on your journey to creating your ideal celebration! If it’s wedding song inspo you’re after, we have the ultimate list of upbeat wedding entrance songs, memorable first dance song choices and more. Discover tips for choosing between a DJ or live act, plus Melbourne location/venue (whether you want CBD, rural, beachy or something else) and supplier suggestions. You’ll also find complimentary checklists (including a wedding budget calculator and run sheet with timings) to help you nail your big day, and much more on our journal.
WHY WORK WITH AN AGENCY?
One Stop Shop
Whether you’re early on in your wedding planning or in deep, you’ll probably have noticed just how many things you need to organise from invitations, catering, cake, venue, dress/suit, transport, hair and makeup, to entertainment, film and photography and much more. It’s a lot of suppliers! With Hey Jack we can help you keep your entertainment, film and photography under one roof, with one central point of contact for all of it, who knows exactly what you want and organises it for you.
Plus, we package these services to save you time and money! We have access to a wide pool of creatives and offer packages for weddings big and small. Oh, and if you need help with other associated entertainment services, we can help organise a MC, audio equipment (wireless PA, wireless mic), smoke machines and lighting!
Dedicated Events Manager
Every Hey Jack wedding will receive a dedicated event manager to help make your wedding visions a reality. They’ll be on hand to answer all your questions (no question is too silly), offer advice and will be available for catch-ups throughout the planning process.
We’re here to help guide you through the sometimes daunting and stressful experience of pulling a lot of things together for your big day! We offer a unique online planning system that allows you to customise your schedule and playlist and update it as often as you like leading up to the wedding. This means more control and less stress. Our team will share resources with song inspo and ideas and are on hand to offer professional music advice to help you pick the perfect song for each part of your wedding.
Security & Peace Of Mind
This is unlikely, but let’s just say your chosen artist cannot be at your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances (such as illness), the show (your wedding) will absolutely go on. We’ll go into overdrive and pull out all the strings to help organise another of our Hey Jack musicians with a similar look, feel and sound to your original choice so your entertainment is just as unique, stand out and energetic as you imagined.
Not many single artists have public liability insurance – an essential protective cover for all couples just in case the worst happens and an artist is injured at your wedding. Every single Hey Jack artist is covered so you and your musician will have peace of mind on your big day.

What is your Wedding Portal?
Hey Jack offers their couples their very own and personalised Wedding Portal. We’ve created this tool to allow our clients the opportunity to document all the details of their wedding. We know wedding planning can be challenging, so we’ve taken most of the hard work in planning everything Music, Film and Photography related. Once set up, couples can come back and make changes to their wedding portal as many times as they like. It’s easy to use and helps make the wedding planning a lot more fun.
What is the standard booking policy?
Ready to lock in your perfect performer? Our standard booking policy is an initial 30% payment to lock in your band. The remaining balance is to be paid 45 days before your big day. Once that all-important first step of booking (and deposit) is made, you will be given your very own musical portal to start adding in any show-stopping tunes or sweet serenades you wish to feature on the day. One-month before showtime, the planning team will take over and give you a run down on all the smaller deets- relieving you to focus on other pressing matters!

What happens if our chosen entertainment can no longer perform at our wedding?
All Hey Jack entertainers are professionals committed to performing on your big day; however, we do prepare for the worst-case scenario in which they incur a personal emergency and must withdraw at the last minute. In the unlikely event your chosen performer cannot commit to your day due to a significant emergency, the Hey Jack team will work tirelessly to source a replacement performer of a similar calibre.
Can a band perform over time on the night?
For a day and night you never want to end, we totally appreciate it if you and your guests demand an encore. Sometimes, a request from the client to perform overtime may be accommodated; however, this is solely at the discretion of Hey Jack and the performers on the night. It is worth noting that additional costs may be charged back to the couple.
