Wow wow wow!

I don鈥檛 even know where to start to say how amazing Alex and Jon of Lazy Marmalade were. They were absolutely brilliant from our reception drinks all the way through to the early hours of the morning! They really got the dance floor kicking off and just kept giving throughout the day. We both can鈥檛 get over how brilliant Lazy marmalade are as entertainers and just great guys. Exactly the vibe we had hoped for!!! We love how they could switch from chilled romantic vibe for our reception to ITS PARTAAY TIME for the evening and gave two completely different performances in the true lazy marmalade spirit. Their communication from when we booked them nearly 2 year ago to now has been superb and always very clear with everything we need to know before booking and the lead up to the big day.

We just want to say thank you for entertaining our guest and for the fantastic performances you guys did! Our guests have mentioned since our big day, how great they thought lazy marmalade were and were really impressed!

Cannot recommend enough!

Lazy Marmalade were absolute perfection! We cannot recommend them enough. From the second we booked communication was brilliant. They learned some of our favourite songs to make our wedding day and first dance extra special. Their evening entertainment was phenomenal - so many people up dancing and commenting on how great the music was! Amazing memories made and such great lads, thank you for everything!

Best wedding band

What can I say. The service we received from Alex and Jon throughout has been amazing. We hired them for our wedding reception and from the moment I saw there promotion video I knew they were the right band for my wedding.
The way they leaned to play our first dance song was amazing and we liked there cover more than the original.
All of our guests loved the band and there DJ set was spot on, they knew all the right songs to get people out of there seats.

Thanks again for making our evening something to remember forever.

Duo of dreams!

If you are contemplating booking Lazy Marmalade for your wedding day, then just do it! I absolutely guarantee it will be the best decision you make!

We were always excited about Alex&Jon being a part of our special day since the day we booked you way back in 2020. Since then I had been stalking you on social media and watching you become more and more popular and getting more and more giddy for our own wedding.

You are both just incredible human beings. Since our first point of contact you have been friendly, professional and supportive and made this part of our wedding planning journey so simple and easy.

Then the big day came and just WOW! You blew myself, Mart and all of our guests away with your incredible talent and ability to get the party started! You took the time to greet us personally which was wonderful and you are both such kind, humble and great blokes.

Our ceremony and wedding reception music was beautiful and we had endless compliments and questions about how amazing you were and who you were. We have quite a few engaged friends so I hope we get to see you again at their weddings in the future!

Then, the party started. You helped to keep the dancefloor packed from start to finish and played the most unreal live sets. We love a good gig and gig vibes is absolutely what we had! I for one was just buzzing the whole night and I genuinely feel that you both have a huge part to play in that...and of course my husband 馃ぃ馃ぃ The playlist songs were spot on and I can't tell you how thrilled I was that you happily catered to our tastes in music - took me back to my teenage emo/skater days! So many of our guests told us how much they loved the live music and the DJ choices, and I think the fact that everyone was shouting "one more song, one more song" after the lights came on proved what a brilliant time they'd all had thanks to you.

You're just amazing and there are no words that can justify just how grateful we are that you were available to share our special day with us. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you and thank you!

The perfect wedding band

We chose Lazy Marmalade to perform at our evening reception and couldn't recommend them enough. From start to finish Alex & Jon were brilliant, the booking process was simple and they were always on hand to answer queries ahead of the big day. On the night we had two live sets including our first dance as well as providing a DJ service, the dance floor was full all evening and our guests continuously commented on how amazing the performances were. The service that Alex and Jon provided was outstanding and created the perfect atmosphere to party the night away!

Thanks so much again guys,
Adam & Lauren (28/05/23)

Couldn't have selected better

Where can I start? - From the moment we saw Lazy Marmalade at a wedding fayre, we knew they were the chaps for us. Their songs - and the fact they are acoustic, which was perfect for our venue - just blew us away. No discussion needed! From day 1, they've been friendly, courteous, organised, respectful, accommodating and professional, but above all - and this is the most important thing - they wowed our guests as much as us.
Even learning a special song just for us (Cherish by Madonna - highly recommend it if you want to dance back down the aisle to it, like we did!) to having loads of song choices available to fit in with our theme... just brilliant. Easy, great value for money and thoroughly great people who felt like part of our wedding family. If we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing and Lazy Marmalade would be an integral part of the day again. Thank you both xx

Filled the dance floor!

I am so happy we chose Lazy Marmalade for our wedding! They made the evening so special from learning our first dance to play live through to our last song at the end of the night. The dance floor was never empty - so many guests commented on how great the band were and they were so competitively priced too.

Thank you so so much!!

We booked Lazy Marmalade to play during our ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding and we cannot thank them enough! From the moment we first contacted them, they were so friendly and helpful and made the whole planning process so easy, which was much appreciated. They learnt 3 songs for our ceremony, which was just so special and will be moments that we'll never forget. We had so many guests comment on how brilliant they were and they added such a personal touch to the day. For anyone looking for live music for their wedding day, we would highly recommend Alex & Jon! Thank you again for everything, we are so pleased that you were part of our special day :)
Love Mr & Mrs Durkin

Smashed it!!!

Jon and Alex really did go above and beyond! They checked in with us regularly before our wedding, giving us advice with the schedule and venue, which made the run up to the day much less stressful! We asked them to learn and perform a new song for our first dance (Bonfire Heart) which they absolutely smashed! All of our guests were very impressed with both their live music and dj'ing. Lazy Marmalade went on to make our wedding evening an incredible night to remember!
