It was the perfect setting for our evening

5 stars - James Alexander are Highly Recommended booked James Alexander for their Wedding November 2019

“James played for us at our pre-wedding party after finding him online. It was everything we hoped for and we really enjoyed it, as did the guests, many of which commented on how amazing James' voice is. He's also a lovely guy. It was the perfect setting for our evening and we couldn't have asked for more. Would highly recommend.”


We loved the personal touches with the set list

5 stars - James Alexander are Highly Recommended booked James Alexander for their Wedding August 2019

“James recently played at our wedding and we had nothing but compliments from our guest. James really set the tone with his music in the ceremony and drinks reception. We loved the personal touches with the set list and the communication in the build up to our big day. A huge thank you from Mr & Mrs Allen!”


His music set the perfect tone for our ceremony and drinks reception

5 stars - James Alexander are Highly Recommended booked James Alexander for their Wedding August 2019

“James played at our wedding in May and it was everything we wanted and more. He met with us beforehand to discuss the music we wanted and options for the bits we weren’t sure about yet. He was a lovely guy to work with and took everything in his stride, even our request for a “congregation singalong” as part of our civil ceremony! I had been warned by others that a singalong might be problematic but James was enthusiastic and lead beautifully making it a total success and a really memorable part of our day. James also sent me samples of the song I wanted for the processional which he recorded with and without lyrics to help me decide what would work best. He had such a professional friendly laid back manner, all our guests said how brilliant he was and his music set the perfect tone for our ceremony and drinks reception. Thank you James! Katie & Tony”

He learned them perfectly, and even did an amazing job reworking the songs into acoustic covers that had a real personal touch. Everyone who came to our wedding loved his music, Would highly recommend!! Thank you for making our day so perfect James!!! Xx”
