This week I sat down with Rebecca who is a piece of the trio Les Trois Amies. Les Trois Amies (meaning in French "the three friends") is a trio of musicians compromising of a violinist, cellist and flautist (Rebecca). Rebecca holds a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in Classical Music Performance, and has performed locally, interstate and internationally with Les Trois Amies. But don't let the classical instruments fool you, Les Trois Amies has a MASSIVE playlist of old and new; classical to pop and everything in between.
Admittedly, I haven't had the chance to sit down with Rebecca before as we are usually quite busy at events (she literally has her hands full!) but it was great to have the chance to get to know her a bit better outside of weddings and expos.

Probably my best friends from school Pip and Astrid!

Not sure about craziest, but one of our grooms wrote a song for his bride us to play at their wedding ceremony. Very romantic!

Exercise and alcohol. They cancel each other out right?

Slow driving in the fast lane, drivers not indicating.

Red skies at night, sailor’s delight.
Who is your favorite author?
Mhairi McFarlane - she’s amazing. She writes “chick lit” but doesn’t like to call it that. Would also like to meet her for a drink! But she does chat to me a little on Insta stories!! I’m looking forward to reading her latest book “Last Night”.
What was the last movie/tv show that you saw? What did you think?
Bridgerton - loved it! The romance, the costumes, and especially the music where Vitamin String Quartet covered pop songs in a classical style, just like we do!
What makes you laugh the most?
What's your favourite wedding venue In Perth?
This question is almost impossible to answer as there’s so many good ones, but I like most venues in the Swan Valley and anything with a river or ocean view. I especially like venues where we are treated well, eg Acqua Viva on the Swan, Caversham House and Joondalup Resort, to name a few!
What three things do you think of the most each day?
Food, weddings and my kids.

This is a tough one though, as I could list so many but I would have to choose Kristin Scott Thomas; I think she’d be a laugh and have so many stories.

Not a fan really, but love water slides!
