Tom Ryder: Wedding Singer in Hertfordshire
My name is Tom Ryder. A wedding singer in Hertfordshire providing live music on acoustic guitar and vocals, and I cover Hertfordshire and the southeast of the UK. I also travel further afield when requested. I can sing during any part of your wedding, including the ceremony, drink reception, meal (wedding breakfast), and the first dance.
Hertfordshire is where I grew up, where I went to school, and where I learned the guitar. I also played there for my first gig. So, there is always a lot of nostalgia attached to the area for me. What is perhaps lesser known about the county is the abundance of beautiful countryside and rural areas you can discover. Incredible architecture and historic buildings are to be found everywhere, and many of these operate as wedding venues.
Some of the fantastic venues in Hertfordshire that I regularly perform at include Down Hall, which is on the Hertfordshire and Essex border, as is Great Hallingbury Manor, Sheene Mill in Royston, South Farm in Royston, and Fanhams Hall in Ware.
For the majority of wedding couples, music is an integral part of their special day. As well as live music has that extra sprinkle of magic about it.
Although there are a number of live music options available at a wedding, an acoustic guitarist and singer is a great solution. The guitar is a very versatile instrument, and while it is common in pop music, it is also possible to rework and strip back dance and house classics and adapt them for acoustic guitar and voice.

I am occasionally asked to put together something extra special for one of my couples. Chantel and Richard Jeffery’s chief bridesmaid Liz wanted me to set her bridesmaid’s speech to music and turn it into a song. So I did just that! Here is my original wedding song Now It’s Forever:
