Hey and welcome!

Hi! I'm Jay, a friendly, professionally trained freelance cellist available in the UK and internationally. Music and cello are two of my biggest passions, and being able to share with amazing people like you, means a great deal to me. If you share the love of the beautiful sound of the cello, we should talk about what I can do for you. Jay x

Real couple testimonial:

Despite getting married during the coronavirus pandemic and therefore having to have limited numbers, we knew we still wanted a live musician to really set the tone of the day. Jay certainly did this and so much more. She played beautifully as the guests arrived and as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle. She played me down the aisle too, to ‘Kissing You - Des’Ree’ which was so moving. Jay set the tone of the day from the start of the ceremony and she worked closely with our wedding planner so she truly understood our desires for our wedding. We are so grateful to her for her part in our day and would highly recommend her to anyone considering a cellist for their special event.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

How does the booking process work?

ANSWER

You decide which parts of your day need that perfect solo cello wedding music. Then you sign and return your digital, online Wedding Agreement and booking fee. Closer to the day, you select your favourite pieces for those key moments (and let me know additional requests!). We confirm final details for the day, including where I will sit, and a point of contact. Finally, I arrive 15 minutes before I'm due to start playing - you enjoy your amazing wedding day!

QUESTION

What forms of payment do you take?

ANSWER

Payments are made via BACS. Any payments made by Stripe may be subject to a 3% card transaction fee. Cheques and PayPal are not accepted.

QUESTION

Are you insured?

ANSWER

I am a full member of Musicians Union, and I carry full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. These documents are available for your venue/organiser, if needed.

QUESTION

Can we request music not on your playlist?

ANSWER

Of course! Each package allows you to request something not in my music library. Please note: additional pieces/special requests must be discussed no less than 1 month before the event date. Requests after this window may be rejected, or subject to an additional fee, and no requests are guaranteed.

QUESTION

Do you work with wedding planners?

ANSWER

Yes - absolutely! It's really important that I have an additional point of contact, as well as yourselves. I will liaise with you and the planner, to make sure your wedding day music is perfect.

QUESTION

How do we choose our music?

ANSWER

You can have a look through my music library, which is updated regularly with new music all the time. If I am playing for your ceremony, you can request specific pieces you would love to hear for the key moments. For your drinks reception, you can let me know what genres of music you would like, plus any additional requests.
