JAM Duo are a cello and piano duo based in the Cotswolds. That said, we play for weddings anywhere in the UK and do not charge for travel no matter where you are in England, Scotland or Wales.

When do you need music at your wedding?

Music forms an important part of every wedding and JAM Duo can offer you music throughout the day from pre ceremony through to your first dance and even into the evening in some cases.

The most common times we provide music for our wedding couples is as follows:


When providing music for your wedding ceremony we usually arrive around an hour before the ceremony start time. This enables us to be ready and set up to start playing around half and hour or so beforehand whilst your guests gather and are seated in the ceremony room.

During your ceremony we then provide music at the following points:

  • Bridal Entrance
  • Signing of the Register
  • Couple Exit

Sometimes we are also asked to play a piece of music at a specific point during the ceremony. Jules our pianist can also accompany a singer if you wish.

Drinks Reception

JAM Duo can provide music during your wedding drinks reception. For this we can play either indoors or outside depending on where your drinks reception is being held. In order to ensure our music is heard we use a professional Bose Speaker System to amplify our cello and stage piano. This is particularly important in large spaces or outside. You’d be surprised how much sound can disappear.

Equally we are also adept at working with sound limiters which some venues impose in order to ensure they are not guilty of noise pollution to their neighbours.

Wedding Meal and First Dance

As well as your drinks reception JAM Duo can also provide a blend of music for your wedding breakfast. Sometimes couples ask for cocktail / jazz piano at this point and sometimes we add in a blend of piano and cello as well just to give a different vibe to this part of the day.

After the wedding breakfast JAM Duo can provide music during ‘cocktail hour’ as it is known between the meal / speeches and the first dance. We are often asked to play for a couple’s first dance. Live music at this point and particularly an arrangement of music created just for you on piano and cello is perhaps one of the most romantic things you can do for your first dance.

JAM Duo at Your Wedding

Jules and Anne-Marie would be delighted to be a part of your wedding either in the Cotswolds or indeed anywhere in the UK. On our listen page you can hear well over 250 recorded tracks of us playing. This is by no means our repertoire list. We can play anything, these are just the tracks we have so far got around to recording.

We would love to hear from you if you are getting married and looking to see how music can enhance your wedding day. You can contact us via WhatsApp – link below, or email us via our contact form.
