Today was rather a special wedding for us as it was the wedding of our friend Caroline who runs Music by Violin. Caroline is a professional musician who provides daytime music for weddings, and so technically you might say she is in direct competition with us. But that’s not really how this industry works. And to be chosen to provide music for her wedding from of all the many thousands of musicians out there, was quite possibly the most flattering thing which could have happened.
We were naturally delighted when Caroline asked us to play music for her Ceremony and Drinks reception and we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of her wedding to Chris.

We love it when clients choose the music – in some ways this makes it a lot easier for us as we can make a playlist for the day quite quickly. Obviously if we have played all the songs and there is still time left then we will carry on in a similar style.
We really enjoyed being a part of Caroline and Chris’ wedding. It was a lovely occasion and everything was done so beautifully. We were genuinely honoured to be a part of their day and to provide music for key elements of the occasion. We wish Caroline and Chris every happiness in their married life together and we look forward to continuing to work with Caroline and sharing busines with her when we can.
Thank you for choosing JAM Duo x
