Acoustic Wedding Singer

Tom-Ryder

So you have your venue. You’ve got the dress. The bridesmaids look amazing. The cake looks delicious. You are ready to welcome friends and family along to celebrate with you. What’s missing?

I’ll tell you what. Having a live acoustic singer perform at your big day!

What do I mean by acoustic wedding singer? Well, I mean someone playing a live instrument and performing live vocals for you and your guests. Acoustic is defined as ‘not having electric amplification’ but this is not always the case. In modern times, acoustic has come to mean stripped back and chilled versions of popular songs. It is songs performed the way they were written, most often on guitar or piano.

Of course, it is possible to hire a singer who sings to backing tracks and pre-recorded music. But in my opinion (and I know that I’m a little biased) you can’t beat an acoustic guitarist and singer.

Here’s why:

  • Adaptability – An acoustic guitarist and singer is able to respond to the crowd very effectively. Is everyone singing and clapping along? Want to repeat a chorus for a singalong? No problem! Equally, if a song is not working out too well, an acoustic wedding singer can mash up the tune into another song or start a new song from scratch, straight away. No need to press pause or skip on a backing track.
  • Authenticity – Singing is a skill, and accompaniment on a live instrument is even more impressive. Combine the two and you have unforgettable showmanship – a highlight of the day that guests will always remember. This was certainly the case at a recent wedding I performed at in Italy, which you can read about HERE.
  • Range of songs. When playing a live instrument, you don’t need to worry about having the right backing track, or fear that you are missing any songs. Just take instant on-the-spot requests from guests! Read more about my top 5 acoustic wedding songs or view my full repertoire.

Services

Ceremony

I can play as you walk down the aisle, during the signing of the register, and when you exit the room as a newly-married couple.

Drinks Receptions

I can play while your guests enjoy drinks and canapés and you have photos taken. This can be either inside or outside, depending on the weather!

During The Meal

I can play two sets during the wedding breakfast and can take requests from guests on the spot, creating the right atmosphere leading up to your speeches.

First Dance & Evening

I can arrange an acoustic version of your chosen song and send you a clip in advance. I can follow this up with a lively set before the DJ takes over.
