A Master At Work.
Words genuinely can't describe what Joel's presence does at a wedding. Every part of our day he featured in was elevated by his music.
We loved him, our guests loved him and even the registrar gave him a shout out. As the groom I'm just gutted I wasn't a guest so that I could sit there and watch his whole set. Joel played before, during and after our ceremony and even learned a request for my wife and I to walk back up the aisle to. He's also a gentleman. As he was leaving once everybody had sat down to eat, he got additional applause from the room as he passed by the windows. Hire this man, he is the ultimate wedding enhancement. Thank you, Joel.

A huge thank you.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so magical, we had the most amazing time with you there!, there was even a point in the church where our photographer was so mesmerized by your music he forgot to capture images...everyone went on and on about how fantastic you were! You truly are so talented!

Someone thought we were filming a movie!
Joel was incredible. I'd been listening to him on Spotify for a while before getting in contact. He was so nice from the first contact. His music was even more amazing on the wedding day. We got married in a national trust venue. There were so many people listening to Joel they didn't realise it was a real wedding. A few people asked my family after if we were filming a movie. Our guests, young and old, have not stopped talking about how magical the music was. They all got emotional. And Joel was also humble enough to share the limelight with my family who sang a few songs too. He's an incredible talent and a true professional. We can't thank him enough.

Incredible musician for our wedding.
We were very fortunate to have Joel play at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. The wedding was a big surprise as people thought that they had just come for our daughters christening. Joel played his version of Pachelbel’s Canon as my wife walked down the aisle and the whole church was in tears. Additionally, Joel played a variety of songs at the reception and had many people talking about how amazing the musician we had was. I highly recommend Joel to play at your wedding!!!

We just wanted to say that you were just fantastic. We are so lucky and so honoured that you played such an important part in our wedding weekend. The music was amazing and all our guests were blown away. You were the highlight for us of our day and the music was phenomenal.
Also a very special thanks for the amazing ceremony walk in song. It was just beautiful and so very emotional. You will always be a part of the awesome memories we will keep with us for that epic weekend at Stubton Hall. F&R

The Perfect Wedding Musician
Our day would not have been the same without him; all ages appreciated his amazing talent and we had so many compliments. But WOW the best thing is having 'Fly' as our entrance song - we get goosebumps and tears every time we hear it. We couldn't fault a thing throughout the day, although the schedule went behind Joel was so flexible to work around it. 5* Service!

Great addition.
We hired Joel to play during arrival drinks and during our canapés. It was great to have such high quality and entertaining music being played. The mix of traditional and modern is remarkable. Our friends loved some of the classics on his set list and some of the older guests marvelled at the equipment. All in all it was a hit. I just wish I had had more time to watch and listen! G

Thank you!
Joel played at our wedding in August and we couldn't have been happier. It created the perfect atmosphere for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. His communication was great throughout the process and, due to the weather, he was super flexible and adaptable during the day as well. We had so many guests say how impressed they were with him!

Excellent gifted musician..with an edge.
Every bit as good as his wonderful YouTube videos and Albums. A skilled musician who brings a contemporary edge. A privilege to have him play for us during and after the ceremony…our only regret was that we couldn’t sit and listen more! Thank you.

Brilliant and unique.
Joel was brilliant. Many guests commented on how amazing he was, providing the perfect entertainment for a garden reception. I have never been to a wedding with a looping violinist, making it feel even more special to us.
