Joel played for us at our wedding in May. It was an outdoor ceremony and reception in a garden which was not a problem at all for him. Walking down the aisle to his beautiful version of Sweet Child of Mine was so special and poignant. He helped to create the most wonderful atmosphere and so many friends and family have since said how much they enjoyed his music.
We love how he is an alternative take on the classic strings at a wedding! Playing anything from Pachebells Canon to Coldplay to Game of Thrones! Captivating to watch how he layers his songs with his loop station. We loved the beat boxing in particular! Joel is a very talented musician and we feel very lucky to have had him play for us. I’m not sure if he’d like this comparison but we have nicknamed him ‘The Ed Sheeran of the violin!’
We were very fortunate to have Joel play at our wedding two days 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!!!
Very much dependent on the date (day of the week/time of year), location and timings on the day. If you can get in touch with the details of the event I will respond quickly with a quote.
I would usually play throughout the wedding day. A typical schedule might be as follows:
Pre-ceremony (as guests arrive) - 20mins.
Ceremony itself (entrance, signing and exit).
Drinks Reception (3 x 30mins sets).
I am also happy to play just pre-ceremony + ceremony / drinks reception / wedding breakfast (as needed).
Yes, usually an additional fee of £50 per new track, but sometimes can be included as part of an offer.
Happy to travel all over the UK and even further afield. Obviously travel distance will be accounted for in the fee!
Usually calculated at 25p/mile.
Yes, as long as timings work out I'm more than happy to do this.
Usually I charge a day rate (all day till 5pm) or an evening rate (after 5pm). If the timings overlap there would of course be some flexibility.
Deposit taken to secure the booking (20% via bank transfer). Final amount due 1 week before (if bank transfer) or cash on the day also fine!
