Simon played Wildest Dreams as my bridal party and I walked up the aisle, coordinating with the church pianist to deliver a stellar performance. As an inherently shy person, I was unsure of following my gut in going for a 'non-traditional' song for my bridal entrance, but it soon became abundantly clear Simon really could play anything and - more importantly - do the piece justice by putting in every effort, including tolerating me emailing him a week before with unnecessarily precise entrance timings! His professionalism and talent gave us the confidence to know we'd made the right choice, and I can't thank him enough. He also played for the drinks reception at Hampden House immediately after the ceremony at the church, and again performed magnificently - I'm only sorry I didn't get a chance to thank him in person on the day.

Simon did a magnificent job. Our wedding guests were wowed by his skill and it was an absolute pleasure to walk down the aisle with a violin accompaniment. Thank you so much.

Simon was highly professional and friendly, I had no concerns about his role in the event. His range on the piano is perfect for any event but the variety he provided with little direction was dead on for the audience. Will definitely book him for future events.

Simon played the violin for our wedding ceremony in London, which we held with only a couple weeks' notice. We had several song requests and they were no problem for him! It was nice to be able to pick songs that are special to us. His music is breathtaking and he puts so much care into every song. Our guests told us they also loved his music. We highly recommend him!

Simon was booked as a pianist for a drinks reception at a corporate Christmas party. He was great to work with and a talented performer. Simon created the perfect Christmas ambience and I will certainly book him again for future events.

Simon is a very gifted violinist. We engaged him to play his violin at our daughter's memorial event. We discussed with Simon that we wanted Irish themed music and he proposed a range of tunes from which we made a selection. Everything about the music was enjoyable and appropriate. His services are impeccable. We highly recommend.

About Wedding Violinist Simon Jordan

Simon Jordan started playing the violin at age 5, and by age 14 had already passed the ultimate violin exam – ABRSM Grade 8 – and passed it with a distinction mark. At age 13 Simon gave his first violin recital (a sell-out) and at age 17 was gigging with bands in London, playing jazz at the Royal Festival Hall, and performing with legendary gypsy bands behind the Iron Curtain in Hungary and the former Czechoslovakia.

You may want Simon to play solo violin at your wedding – or to perform with a pianist. His regular performing partners are pianists Jon Spanyol, Christopher Warner and Martyn Croston. The combination of violin and piano is much more versatile than a string quartet and will work better than a solo violin if you require a musical performance for a long period of time. Simon is also a pianist – he can provide and bring his own piano; and also amplification for both violin and piano, if the wedding or the venue is big enough!

Whatever you choose, Simon will work with you or to your brief to compile a carefully crafted programme of music, making his own arrangements of music weeks before the event. Contact Simon now for a competitive quote – happiness is guaranteed!

At Your Ceremony

As guests arrive, the wedding violinist’s music subtly establishes the magical tone of the day. The bride’s entrance, beautifully underscored with some music she has picked out herself. The wedding violinist can entertain the guests or provide a gentle musical background, if you prefer As the wedding party and guests depart, this can be anything from classical to crowd-pleaser.
