Sophie & Matt
Prahran Hotel, Melbourne
New Year's Eve 2015
These guys knocked it out of the park! What a great way to see in 2016!
The 'Old Hollywood' theme saw all 200+ guests rocking fantastic period outfits that, along with the live jazz music, transported the Prahran Hotel back to the roaring twenties! Sophie and Matt were joined by their two adorable children on stage whilst they made it official. They were serenaded off by Nicholas Roy (a former contestant on The Voice - the kid's got a hell of a set of lungs on him) who performed Falling Slowly from the movie Once. Matt's best friends - Tom, Doug and Andy - were all in fine form with their MC gig, nailing a medley of classic movie quotes and even a performance of Chim Chimney from Mary Poppins.
Matt's brother twanged many a heart string with his speech and laid the foundation for a beautiful surprise home-made movie of Soph & Matt's day so far. Dim the house lights and cue the sensational gypsy flamenco band La Rumba to get the dance floor started and to help Matt serenade Soph before their first dance.
At 11:50pm everyone gathered in the courtyard and were given glow sticks, Tom and Kylie took the stage to perform Seasons of Love from Rent which kicked off a mass singalong.
It was left to the stars of the show, Sophie and Matt, to count us in to 2016. Glitter cannons, glow sticks, hugs, high fives, a couple of cheeky pashes... it had it all.
Boom. Happy New year everyone.
