Music is the element that will lift the emotion, tug at the heartstrings and add the extra bit of magic during what is one of the most beautiful celebrations of a lifetime.
With a voice described as spellbinding and enchanting, Rachel Hamilton is a highly sought-after wedding musician and has performed at more than 40 weddings in the past three years around the South Island. Due to complete a Bachelor of Music in Auckland this year, Rachel has fallen in love with the North Island, where she now bases herself.

Rachel is perfect for the ceremony music, during the cocktail hour and for first dances. She is able to learn any specially chosen songs for the ceremony, adding real emotion in the unforgettable moment when the bride walks down the aisle. A fabulous advantage of live music is not stressing about the timing of it all, as Rachel will continue playing until the bride has joined her groom.
