Wedding Cellist - Jay Émme

Why Have Solo Cello for Your Wedding?

Sometimes you might find yourself a little lost for words, and need the emotion and expression of music to sum up what you want to say. Maybe you and your partner share favourite pieces or songs, and want to incorporate those little things into the day. So, the cello is the most romantic instrument closest to the human voice!

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent."

{Victor Hugo}

Having spent many years as a wedding cellist and being deeply involved in the wedding industry, I’m acutely aware of the beautiful and important things you might want for your wedding day. It’s always amazing to your favourite wedding music performed live on the day; performed on cello is definitely something that could bring a little additional magical luxury to your incredible day!

The cello is brilliantly versatile, from a rich bass notes to a lush singing upper voice, and you’ll hear all of this when I perform for you.

As well as performing familiar classical pieces, I use my versatility to include a range of other music genres you might like, including pop/chart songs, Disney favourites, even some rock classics, and much more! There are almost no limits to the magic we can make happen. Click here to view the solo wedding cello music library!

Before You Continue, Here Are Some Questions Answered...

I'm available for some or all of the key moments in your day - this might be guests arriving through to you leaving the ceremony, your drinks reception, your wedding breakfast, and/or your first dance. I have an extensive music library of pieces specially arranged for solo cello, and I also take requests in advance of the big day. Sid and I travel worldwide - please note that when we fly, 200 year old Sid cannot tolerate being in the hold and needs his own seat on the plane. I definitely recommend booking asap, as I'm often booked up to 18 months in advance.

I offer a special service where I combine my gifts, skills and qualifications to create arrangements of specific requests for solo cello. I'm more than happy to specially arrange a piece of your favourite music for you! You can send over a YouTube/Spotify link to the track for me to transcribe, write and learn it, or if you have the sheet music, I can rewrite it directly for cello. Alternatively, I can arrange your music from scratch if resources aren't available. You are welcome to request your favourite additional tracks for your event! Please do get in touch to receive a copy of my brochure, which contains all the info you need.

Let's get your wedding ceremony music sorted.

I have a few spaces left for 2024, and am currently receiving enquiries and bookings for well into 2025. If you’d like to find out more about having me as your professional wedding cellist, please get in touch, and we can get the ball rolling for you!

Please contact me using the form below – let me know your wedding date and venue, and any other important info. From there we can discuss your requirements for the wedding day.

Your date is reserved upon signing and return your Wedding Agreement, and paying your booking fee. The balance is due before the wedding day, so that you are not worrying about finances on the day itself, and can relax/celebrate with your guests. Need to make some adjustments prior to the big day? No problem! Just keep in touch and we will make sure everything is up to date.

On the day itself, I arrive nice and early in order to make sure I can perform in just the right spot, and go over any last minute details with your wedding planner, coordinator, and/or wedding officiant.
