Today we were off to Wales for the beautiful wedding of Fay and Paul at Canada Lodge and Lakes just north of Cardiff.

Wedding Daytime Music
Starting with the wedding ceremony we set up in good time along with the florists and the videographers. Today we were using our beautiful piano shell which really enhances the look of our duo, particularly for a ceremony where we are positioned at the front of the room.
Fay arrived right on time looking fabulous in her beautiful wedding dress. She walked in to our arrangement of Can’t Help Falling in Love with You by Elvis Presley.
JAM Duo also played a selection of songs during the signing of the register. Fay had given us a few options. In such instances we tend to seamlessly blend the songs together so we can get in as much of the music choices as possible.
At the end of the ceremony, Fay and Paul left to Christina Perri’s timeless classic A Thousand Years.
Wedding Drinks Reception and Electric Cello
With the bar indoors, but it being a sunny day a lot of people moved outside for the drinks reception. However, there wasn’t very much room for us to do the same so we decided on balance to change over to the electric cello and continue playing from our location in the ceremony room with the doors open as this meant the music easily carried around the venue even with just a little amplification.
Music for the Wedding Breakfast
After a short drinks reception, we relocated downstairs for the wedding breakfast. Due to space we had to return our Piano Shell to the car at this point and use the keyboard stand. Anne-Marie also swapped back to the acoustic cello as it was quite a small room and so there was no need for amplification.
Music for Your Wedding
JAM Duo loved playing for Fay and Paul’s wedding in Wales and we would also be delighted to play for your wedding, regardless of location in the UK (or even Europe as we also do destination weddings).
