The best wedding entertainer you could hire? An acoustic guitarist and singer! Live music brings a special touch to your big day. I’ve sung at weddings for almost 10 years. During this time, I’ve built an extensive repertoire and gained a lot of experience. I know which songs to play at each part of the wedding day and can even take requests on the spot.

Why Choose an Acoustic Guitarist as Your Entertainer For Weddings

Acoustic guitar music is more than background noise; it’s part of the entertainment. The guitar’s versatility allows me to convert almost any song into an acoustic version. If the song has a good melody, I can play it! Singing a bride or groom down the aisle is a unique moment. I can learn any song you choose for the ceremony, just give me some notice!

The afternoon drinks reception and wedding breakfast are common times for me to play. While guests mingle and you take photos, live music can enhance the atmosphere. Sure, classical music or piano works, but an acoustic guitarist offers something special (though I might be biased).

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Entertainer For Weddings

As the day progresses and the drinks flow, your guests will be ready to party. Acoustic guitar music can get feet tapping and people dancing! I’ve even composed custom songs as part of a groom’s speech. If this interests you, please get in touch.

The first dance is another key moment. It’s not just about entertainment but about sharing a memorable moment. Before handing over to the DJ, there’s always time for a few more acoustic classics.

If you are looking for wedding entertainment, consider an acoustic guitarist and singer. I’ve traveled all over the UK, including Herts, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent, and Cornwall. I’ve also played at destination weddings in Italy and Croatia. If you have any questions, please reach out via my contact form.

Planning Your Wedding Entertainment: Tips and Advice

Here are some tips to help you plan your wedding entertainment:

  1. Know Your Audience: Think about the tastes and preferences of your guests. Consider their age range, musical preferences, and what type of entertainment they might enjoy the most.
  2. Set a Budget: Determine how much you are willing to spend on entertainment. This will help you narrow down your options and ensure you stay within your budget.

  7. Make a Schedule: Plan out when each type of entertainment will take place during your wedding day. This will help you ensure everything runs smoothly and your guests are entertained throughout.

An experienced wedding singer can provide great music throughout the evening. A versatile vocalist should perform both modern hits and classic standards to appeal to everyone. It’s also important to find someone who interacts well with guests.
