Rhys Tolhurst Brings His Talent to Melbourne Weddings

Rachel Chipp

Not only a gifted singer, Rhys is also a multi-talented musician who brings both his guitar and keyboard finesse to wedding celebrations to perform a variety of romantic songs for wedding guests. Recognisable from when he reached the final showdown on Australia’s Got Talent in 2012, at the tender age of 17, wowing the judges and Australia alike with his big band and swing performances, Rhys’ musical style has evolved in the years since.

He is now an accomplished singer-songwriter who also enjoys putting his own twists on his beautiful arrangements of cover versions. He transforms songs with his silver-toned voice to make them sweeter than honey. Despite performing to a TV audience of over a million viewers, there is nothing Rhys loves more than the intimacy of playing a wedding ceremony that celebrates the love of two people.

Rhys puts his own magical stamp on ‘You’re the One that I Want’, slowing it down with an acoustic version to take a more tender approach befitting a wedding celebration. He adds depth and emotion to the song with his vocals that forces you to stop and really consider the meaning behind the lyrics. After hearing the same uptempo version of the song for years, Rhys’ haunting version is a breath of fresh air that makes a deeper impression so that you will think about the same lyrics that you are so familiar with in a whole new way. By listening to Rhys’ rendition, you realise that the song comes down to a simple message - ‘You’re the One that I Want’ - which makes it such a perfect choice for a wedding day.

Rhys' early musical influences mean that he offers classy standards such as 'The Way You Look Tonight', 'When I Fall in Love', 'Moon River' and 'L-O-V-E' which are so timeless and create a wonderful atmosphere at a wedding.

Rhys Tolhurst's wedding ceremony package involves playing 15-20 minutes of music before your wedding ceremony starts and performing for 10-15 minutes after the ceremony. His canapés package includes the additional selection of one or two sets of music, lasting 45 minutes each.
