Instrumental Guitar

Want to walk down the aisle to your favourite song or piece of music? Your big day is all about you. I play religious, civil and humanist ceremonies (followed by drinks receptions). Anything from my set list is acceptable as it is instrumental. If a priest wishes to have some religious music, I can accommodate too. I have over 15 years experience and I know in detail the structures and sections where music is best placed. I know how to improvise timings during the ceremony and I work closely with the Celebrants to ensure this runs smoothly.

I am open to song/music requests for ceremonies. This is limited to two songs/pieces of music but I can learn more at an added cost.

I primarily perform solo instrumental guitar but can accompany other singers and sing myself (see my vocal & guitar set list).

I use all my own top of the range guitars and audio equipment to ensure everything sounds perfect on the day. 

I can play outdoors as I have a battery powered amplifier, so there's no need to worry about an outdoor power source. 

I am open to travel anywhere. I am based in Meath but have travelled all around the country and even Portugal and Spain in the past (career highlights).

Check out my set list below. Should you need any advice on what music works best in different sections of the ceremony, please ask.
