The clip shows Mrs. Voyias watching her neighbors’ wedding from her window, as the two get married in front of their house.

The violinist, who usually plays at events such as weddings and receptions, then picks up her instrument before hitting the street.

As she begins to play, the newlyweds turn and walk toward the gate.

“Their wedding had already been postponed twice, they could only accommodate five guests with the restrictions in Sydney,” said Ms Voyias.

“Their family couldn’t make it from abroad… there was not a dry eye in sight.

“It turned out to be such a beautiful day!”

The couple smile and wipe the tears from their eyes as they watch Mrs Voyias play for them from the street.

The video has attracted nearly 24,000 likes with over 1,000 comments with people praising Ms Voyias’ “beautiful” and “nice” actions.

“This was unbelievable to watch. Wonderful to see someone make such a kind gesture in these difficult times,” one replied.

“Tears are rolling down my cheeks. Faith in humanity restored,” commented another.

The latest easing of restrictions in Sydney means weddings can now take place outdoors with five guests, including the couple getting married, two witnesses, one person leading the service and one person to record it.

The two witnesses can be present anywhere in Greater Sydney but cannot leave the area to attend a wedding, while people from regional NSW can enter the greater Sydney region if they are the parent, child or brother or being the sister of the person who is married.

Residents of the 12 involved LGAs can only attend weddings in other LGAs if they are the parent, child or sibling of someone who is married.

Weddings cannot take place in households, but must be outdoors, and people are not allowed to hold gatherings or services afterwards.
