"the highlight of my wedding"
Jay was honestly the highlight of my wedding (aside from the obvious marrying my husband part). She did a custom piece for the ceremony and it was beautiful. She ensured my entrance was at the exact right moment in the song (which isn’t easy when you’re walking with a toddler). Her music was fabulous and she was an absolute delight. Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect!

"Absolutely Beautiful"
Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the weekend. The music you provided for us was absolutely beautiful - every song was perfect and will remain such a memorable part of our day. I’ve lost count of how many people have commented on how much they enjoyed it, especially my entrance music. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Thanks so much again, Sophie and Matt x

"Exceeded our expectations"
Jay definitely exceeded our expectations. She is both a wonderful musician and a very kind woman who paid attention to all our wishes and suggestions. Our wedding was a very happy occasion and thanks to her music it was even more romantic, elegant and fun.

"very professional"
Thank you very much for all you did to make Emily and Pats wedding so special. Your music in the church made such a difference as the organ is old. Your ability to be so adaptable and to even play the hymns as well was amazing and very much appreciated. The sound of the cello was perfect from the onset. You were extremely professional, arriving in good time to set up and just ‘getting on’ with the job if making a cold country church come to life with beautiful music. We all send you a huge thank you.

Simply Magical
Hearing the beautiful sound of Jay's cello soar to the rooftops of our ancient Threshing Barn was simply magical. Thank you so much Jay for filling our spaces with your music and for giving us such joy, we are delighted to have you as part of our team and look forward to seeing and listening to the happiness you will also give our couples.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your most memorable wedding?

Playing "Raiders of The Lost Ark" for a groom as we walked up to meet his best man at Clearwell Castle! He loved superheroes and adventure films, so this was a brilliant surprise for him requested by his fiancée!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, fun, relaxed, enthusiastic, and, stylistic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

It has got to be the fact that I'm able to take one of my dedicated passions and use it to help make someone else's day really awesome.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Wonderful couples contact me, we discuss what pieces they would love to hear, I can fill out the rest of the playlist with suggestions. If the couple would like, we can meet or video conference, and they can hear me play. Once agreed, a deposit is paid and an agreement is signed to secure the booking for the duration requested. I arrive fully prepared on the wedding day, ready to make some music!

What makes a romantic first dance?

When the couple literally don't care about anything else in the world, and all that matters is two best friends just got married.
