2023 - A Year to Remember

2023 was Wedding Jam's biggest and busiest year yet. When there were good times to be had, we've been here, we've been there, we've been every-blummin'-where - and we wouldn't have it any other way!

The last 12 months - gone in the blink of an eye - have been hectic in more ways than one. Gorgeous garden sounds, mad dancefloors, sweaty parties, massive tunes and making lasting memories are our raison d'etre, but Wedding Jam HQ has been non-stop day-to-day, overseeing sizeable and continuous growth in our already fabulous roster of bands, singers and musicians. We're incredibly proud of the quality of acts in the WJ stable - each of them elite, each of them guaranteed to bring it on your big day.

Weather-wise, it wasn't perfect - but the fairly wet summer failed dismally to dampen spirits. Rain on your wedding day doesn't have to spell disaster, and this summer proved it unequivocally. The indefatigability of the human spirit is seldom better showcased than at wet weddings, and it was a joy for us to provide the sounds to thousands of guests who were hell-bent on going hard no matter the conditions.

We're immensely fortunate at Wedding Jam - we count ourselves among the lucky few for whom work doesn't really feel like work. Staffed entirely by musicians, DJs and music obsessives, what we do is truly a labour of love, and we like to think that love and passion shines through in everything we do.

But while music is and always will represent the core of Wedding Jam, we'd be nothing without people. And what amazing people. From the countless happy couples, to their wonderful and often hilarious guests, and also our friends in the industry - world class wedding suppliers of all stripes - we are blessed to be able to play a small part in making memories that last forever, and to share it with so many lovely folk. It is an immense privilege to be allowed to share in your experiences, and one we never take lightly or for granted.

And so to the music. Whether supplying string quartets, soul singers, jazzers, DJs, harpists, acoustic guitarists, brass ensembles - you name it - the music has been of the highest order. Our acts have covered wedding receptions and parties the length and breadth of the country - and overseas - to nothing other than rapturous feedback and acclaim. We're very proud of them, and very thankful to them, too.

To wrap up, here's our Christmas gift to you: a playlist of our 2023 favourites - including 10 brand new tracks we've loved this year, and also 10 much-loved staples of our DJ's wedding sets.

Thank you to everyone who shared in our 2023 journey - and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

The best night of your life deserves the perfect soundtrack.
