James Bay Reveals Ed Sheeran Wedding Singer Plans

Tuesday 8th March 2016

While we undoubtedly have the best wedding bands London has to offer on our books, a high profile singer has thrown his hat into the wedding singer ring this week who we’re sure to have booked solid year round – and a very fancy hat it is too!

After the Brit Awards this week, best British male aware winner James Bay told the Daily Star about his dreams to team up with his friend Ed Sheeran for a sideline as a wedding band.

“Between us we've probably helped loads of couples pop the question,” he said. “I picture us in 30 years’ time going around in a van together... doing weddings, turning up with a couple of banjos.”

It may make perfect sense for the duo, with James’s song popular wedding band choices, and Ed’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ one of the most popular first dance songs for wedding’s last year, according to Glamour.

However, while all our acts have absolute star potential, they’re very much aware that it’s the bride and groom’s big day – and we can’t help but think that this singing duo might pull a bit of focus from the celebration of love and family that’s going on around them.

If you can’t wait for James and Ed to find to find out whether your save-the-date clashes with their next sold-out arena gig, don’t worry too much. We’ve got a great array of bands and double acts to cater for every kind of musical style – and many of them have Ed and James’s songs already in their repertoire.
