My biggest achievement is probably that I make a living out of my wedding performances. I’ve won competitions and things in the past however I’m most proud of the fact that I’ve built up my performance career and now get to play guitar to earn my living.

My repertoire includes music from so many different styles. I think that’s what sets me apart from some of the other classical guitarists out there. I’ve had many brides tell me that the reason they chose me was for my versatility. Being able to have classical music during the ceremony and then jazz, pop/rock or even Spanish music for the drinks reception is a major bonus. It provides variety without having to hire another musician.

I tend to attract couples that are looking for a relaxed atmosphere during the day. A lot of my music is very chilled out and creates a very relaxing ambience. Having attention grabbing or intrusive music throughout the day can mean everybody is partied out by time the evening celebrations kick in. Having a relaxed vibe during the day helps to avoid burning out too soon!
