Wedding reception


    The Romance Collective is a carefully curated selection of live musicians, singers and DJs throughout Canberra and South-East NSW, housed under one creative roof. 


    The Romance Collective was founded upon the principle that organising music for weddings and events shouldn't be a stressful endeavour. When you choose The Romance Collective, you'll deal with one person from beginning to end. Our founder Ashley Feraude will work with you personally to understand your musical vision, then put the plans in place to bring it all to life. 


    Ashley is an experienced music producer and DJ, as well as the Director of Music at FASHFEST, Canberra's fashion festival. From tailored niche events to large-scale productions, his experience and hands-on approach makes him your best 'musical' friend.

    Music options

    From traditional to contemporary,  acoustic to DJ, and solo artists to bands ...we'll cater to exactly what you're looking for.


    Our musicians cover everything from acoustic ceremonies through to cocktail receptions, sophisticated dinners and raging after parties, seamlessly shifting the mood as the night progresses. We'll also adjust for each milestone moment; from an uplifting bridal party entry, a romantic first-dance, through to getting everyone on the dance floor. 


    We are self-sufficient and will work directly with your venue or wedding planner to cover all the details.


    Music genres range from classical, jazz, folk, soul, funk disco, retro, classics to pop and original compositions. If we need cultural, ethnic or world music then let us know in advance and we can work that out too.

    When it comes to creating a mood for your wedding or event, there's nothing more influential over an atmosphere than music. Let us set the right tone and craft the perfect musical repertoire for your celebration.


    Acoustic solos acts: guitars and pianos with or without vocals

    Acoustic duos: combos of keys and sax or guitar and vocals

    Acoustic trios: three piece bands for a fuller sound

    Bands: four to five piece bands delivering an impactful performance

    DJ & Live

    DJ with live elements: including vocals, percussion, sax, trumpet, violin or keys. 


    A great combination for those who want a live element but with the added flexibility of a DJ to read the mood and carry through to the dance floor party.


    Our collective only has current working DJs experienced in delivering sets at lounges, bars, nightclubs and events.


    It's that practical experience that makes them great at suiting the music to an occasion, understanding the guests and reading the collective mood of the event.


    They play for you, not for themselves.
