A professional wedding guitarist can provide the perfect soundtrack for your special day, playing beautiful melodies that will enhance the emotions of the moment.

Personalized Music Selections.

One of the biggest benefits of hiring a professional wedding guitarist is the ability to create a personalized playlist for your ceremony.

A professional musician will have the ability to read the crowd and adjust their performance accordingly, ensuring that the music is always appropriate and enjoyable. They will also have the necessary equipment and backup plans in case of any technical difficulties. Additionally, a professional musician will be reliable and punctual, arriving on time and ready to perform. Overall, hiring a professional wedding guitarist will add a level of professionalism and expertise to your special day.

From Ceremony to Reception: What a Wedding Guitarist Can Cover

If you’re looking to add a touch of class and romance to your wedding day, consider hiring a wedding guitarist. From the ceremony to the reception, a skilled guitarist can provide beautiful music that sets the tone for your special day. But what types of music can they cover? Let’s take a closer look.

Ceremony Music: Prelude, Processional, and Recessional.

A wedding guitarist can provide beautiful music for the prelude, as guests arrive and take their seats. They can also play the processional, as the wedding party walks down the aisle, and the recessional, as the newlyweds exit the ceremony.

Drinks Reception Music: Creating a Lively Atmosphere.

After the ceremony, guests typically move on to a cocktail hour, where they can mingle and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres. A wedding guitarist can provide the perfect background music for this part of the reception, creating a lively and festive atmosphere. They can play a mix of upbeat and romantic songs, including popular hits and classic favourites, and this is an opportunity for the guitarist to showcase their versatility and entertain guests of all ages.

Dinner Music: Setting the Tone for the Evening.

As guests move on to the dinner portion of the reception, a wedding guitarist can continue to set the tone for the evening with their music. They can play soft and romantic tunes during the meal, creating a relaxed and intimate atmosphere, and this is also a good time for the couple to request a special song to be played.

First Dance and Special Requests: Making the Moment Memorable.

One of the most memorable moments of a wedding reception is the first dance. A wedding guitarist can provide a live and intimate performance of the couple’s chosen song, creating a truly special moment. This personal touch can make the reception even more memorable for everyone involved.

Dancing Music: Getting Everyone on the Dance Floor.

While a wedding guitarist can provide beautiful music for the ceremony and drinks reception, they can also get everyone on the dance floor during the evening reception. They can play upbeat and popular songs that will get guests of all ages dancing and having a great time. A skilled wedding guitarist can create a medley of songs that seamlessly transition from one to the next, keeping the energy high and the party going all night long.

“Jon played a beautiful acoustic set outside in the gardens at our wedding. It fitted the mood perfectly and the guests had nothing but praise for him. He was discreet, professional and friendly but most of all a great performer who really added the perfect final touch to our day. he was a joy to have around and I would recommend him straight away for anyone looking to add that special touch to their day.”


Beccy & Rob

“Hi Jon….we literally cannot thank you enough you were incredible, you really made the night. One of the things we were personally most nervous about was the first dance which turned out to be a glowing highlight, such fun throwing ourselves around. Everyone was asking how we knew you and assumed you must have been a friend of our because “you don’t get musicians like that doing weddings” we assured them we had been incredibly lucky and passed on your details. Other than actually getting married to my beautiful wife, your music and the incredible atmosphere it created led to one of the most fun evenings I can remember. Again thank you so much.”

Rob and Danni

“Jon was AMAZING! He made our wedding perfect and everyone commented on how amazing he was. We asked Jon to sing before the ceremony, during the drinks reception and during the wedding breakfast and we cannot fault him. He had people singing along and dancing in their chairs. At one point he had all the guests singing along to ‘Hey Jude’!! We’re not sure that was what he was expecting but he loved it all the same! Everyone had such an amazing time and enjoyed Jon so much that there was outrage when he finished and after a few pleas from many a guest, we were fortunate enough to have him continue his set a little longer. One family friend loved him so much that he wants to know if he would just come and sing for him in his garden!!
