Does it get any better?

Working with Lazy Marmalade was a dream. We live in California but were planning a wedding in the UK, which made hiring vendors feel like a bit of a gamble. Jon took us through the process beautifully. We always had clear and direct communication, he took the time to learn a few songs that were specifically important to us, and when the band showed up on the day of the wedding they already felt like old friends. Our guests could not believe how incredible they sounded — during the cocktail hour before the wedding breakfast, many of our guests simply stood around in awe, watching the Lazy Marmalade performance with undivided attention. We’ll forever be grateful to them and the memories they helped us form. Truly perfect experience and something we will treasure forever.

Gavin and Laura - American Museum Bath

Laura and I had the pleasure of lazy marmalade performing at our wedding in Bath. They were exceptionally professional, presentable, and approachable throughout our journey together. They have an exceptional sound that turns well known classics into edgy masterpieces. They have incredible energy which was infectious. Laura is a musician with a keen ear for good musicianship, and she loved them. I don’t think there can be a better endorsement than that.

Highlight of the wedding!!

We booked Alex and Jon to play all day at our wedding and it was the best decision I made! Throughout the planning and lead up to the day their communication was amazing and sorted everything music wise without me having to do anything which made for such stress free organising. Such lovely guys that will definitely make you feel at ease.
My requested down the aisle song (which they learnt) was just stunning. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room and I truly believe it was mostly due to them creating such a magical environment.
For the evening again they knew exactly what would get everyone on the dance floor!!! There was not one song where everyone wasn’t up dancing and having the best time. Weeks later how good lazy marmalade were is still a topic of conversation I regularly have with most of the guests in attendance.
Thankyou Jon and Alex for making our wedding such a great day and for just being amazing people!

Absolutely Amazing!

Massive thank you to Alex and Jon you were both amazing on our wedding day and gave it something different to remember. So many of our guests have mentioned how good you were and what a lovely idea it was to have you both singing.

We had lazy marmalade for our ceremony songs and after while we had drinks and canapés and how lovely that was before the rain arrived. That didn’t stop Alex and Jon though they quickly moved all their equipment in to the teepee and carried on. Honestly we are so glad we chose you for our day. Would definitely recommend you!
Thank you so so much x

Cannot recommend enough!

My sister came across Lazy Marmalade when we were looking for our wedding band and after watching a few of their videos we knew they were the wedding band for us - from the style of their music to the variety of songs they perform, they were the perfect fit for our day.

We originally enquired about their Gold package which covered the evening but decided to book their Silver package which included our daytime drinks reception as well and I'm so glad we did! They played outside and really contributed to a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

On the evening they really got the party going, introducing our cake cutting, playing our first dance song live followed by two lively and engaging live sets which kept the dancefloor full. Their DJ set in between also perfectly captured all of the songs we had requested. You really do get the benefit of booking a full band and a DJ when you book Lazy Marmalade!

Alex and Jon are both really nice, down-to-earth people. Their personable nature really shines through - from initially enquiring with them, through to the day itself where they always make sure they have a photo with the bride and groom, they were so friendly and responsive and made the whole process of booking them feel so easy.

We can't wait to see them live again at their gig in November and would 100% recommend to anyone getting married!

A MUST have for your wedding!

I can't recommend Lazy Marmalade enough!
I first saw them on TikTok years ago and knew if I ever got married I needed them at my wedding.
From the first conversation with Alex and Jon they kept us in the loop, answered any questions we had straight away and made us feel so relaxed.

On the wedding day they blew us away. The music is absolutely incredible and they are both so kind and lovely. We had a few specific requests and they really did us proud, nothing was too much trouble at all.
The private last dance they provided for myself and my now husband is something we will treasure forever. They helped clear the dancefloor just so we could have that 4 minute dance to ourselves, and for that alone we cannot thank them enough.

Since the wedding we have had so many messages telling us how incredible Lazy Marmalade were. We really wish we could relive the whole day again.

Thank you so much Jon and Alex, from the bottom of our hearts.

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

Wow wow wow!

I don’t 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’t 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.

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)
