Made our wedding an incredible day!

My wife and I were recommended Paul by a colleague who had him play at their wedding and he didn鈥檛 disappoint!

We booked Paul for the entire day of our wedding at Leez Priory in Essex. From the moment we booked him he stayed in touch and we had a lovely call before the big day to discuss our timings and what music we wanted him to play for our ceremony and throughout the day in general.

Paul is very friendly and polite. He is also very knowledgeable and professional. His guitar skills are world class and he really did make an amazing atmosphere for our wedding. There is something about classical guitar and sunny weather outdoors that go so well together!

Paul also played during our wedding breakfast, which created a perfect ambience, and our guests absolutely loved it.

As well as playing amazing classical guitar pieces he also played some more modern hits, lovely film scores and even learned the Jurassic Park theme tune for me, which we loved. The Disney songs also when down very well, particularly with my wife!

We give Paul a 10/10 and would highly recommend him!

Thanks so much for making our day, Paul.

What an amazing talented guitarist.

Paul played for our wedding on the 29th October, and we have never been more grateful for him! We knew from the moment we met him, he had to be part of our big day. He knew what songs to play to keep the guests lively, but also knew what songs would get the guests singing.

Thank you so much Paul! I would recommend Paul to anyone to have a special touch to the day. My guests haven鈥檛 stopped talking about him!!

perfect soundtrack to the perfect day

We booked Paul to play at our wedding on 10th June 2023. Paul is a true pro and added a lovely acoustic backdrop to our ceremony and wedding breakfast. We requested a certain rift for the bridal procession which Paul delivered perfectly and this is a precious memory for my wife and I. I would definitely recommend Paul for your big day.

So pleased we booked Paul - really added something special!

We booked Paul relatively last minute for our wedding in Dec 23 (Warwick) having heard him play at our venues tasting event. At the event we thought he was brilliant, it was so nice to have live music playing in the background. A nice balance of modern and more traditional music.

Paul responded quickly to all of our queries and it was super easy to book him to play. Paul played while our guests arrived, during our ceremony and wedding breakfast. We were able to chose all of our entrance, exit and signing the register songs which was a really nice touch. Paul gave us good suggestions on tempos/ which styles of music to use when - this was super advice and on the day it worked well.

We are so pleased we chose Paul and would definitely recommend him. Total confidence in what he鈥檚 doing. We had many compliments from our guests and we were really pleased we went ahead and booked. It really did add a little something special to our wedding.

Excellent guitarist and performer

Paul was brilliant for our wedding in Norfolk for both the service and the drinks reception. Paul was easy to book, quick to contact us and talk through the process and we loved his repertoire of songs.

We had lots of people say how much they enjoyed listening to Paul and it created just the vibe we were after.

Highly recommend booking Paul!

Perfect addition to our day

We first heard Paul play at our menu tasting and instantly knew we wanted him to play at our wedding. It was the perfect touch to create a wonderful atmosphere for our wedding breakfast. He also played beautifully for our entrance and exit music for the ceremony, even accommodating my husbands request for Lord of The Rings soundtrack music. Would 100% recommend him if you鈥檙e getting married.

Absolutely amazing & bespoke

Paul was absolutely fantastic! From the moment of first contact he鈥檚 been so willing to make our wedding day so special. He learnt a song close to our heart that I could walk down the aisle to which was the cherry on an already wonderful cake!
On the wedding day itself, Paul made everything so stress free! A truly talented professional. Couldn鈥檛 be more grateful to have found Paul! Can鈥檛 wait to have parties & ask Paul to play for us again!!

So talented!

Paul was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. He played a variety of songs and really added to the emotions of the day. If you鈥檙e thinking about booking with Paul please just do it, because you won鈥檛 be disappointed!! His music adds to the emotions and romantic feel of the day and is so much more special than just having a playlist. Paul also provided us with an MP3 copy of our aisle song which was so kind. Couldn鈥檛 recommend him more, fantastic, and super super talented. Thank you Paul, our day wouldn鈥檛 have been the same without you xx
