Video: Here Comes The Sun

Video: Here Comes The Sun Here is the video for Here Comes The Sun, taken from a series of videos I shot at Iscoyd Park in August.  I've been playing this one for a while now and it's always a popular choice for use in the wedding ceremony.  It is usually chosen as an exit song, as it's got an upbeat and joyful feeling without being too fast.  Unfortunately I've forgotten who the arranger is!  But it's not one of my own so I'll endeavour to dig the book out and give credit once I've found out who arranged it.

Video: Wonderful Tonight

Video: Wonderful Tonight I recently recorded several videos at Iscoyd Park, a spectacular countryside venue on the Welsh/Shropshire border.  I decided to focus on recording examples from my Pop and Rock repertoire.  Out of all of my sets, (Classical, Spanish, Jazz + Pop/Rock).  This set remains my most regularly requested for weddings.  I think the fact that it contains songs most people will know make it more appealing.  Added to that, the stripped back arrangements with no vocals, played on an instrument as beautiful as the classical guitar make it perfect for weddings. Wonderful Tonight The first [...]

Billesley Manor Hotel | Warwickshire

Billesley Manor in Warwickshire | 24th May 2015 This was the second time I’d been booked to play guitar at a wedding at Billesley Manor Hotel in Warwickshire. The first time was in 2013. You can read about it here. I must admit that it didn’t look great in the morning. The clouds were heavy and it was spitting with rain from the moment I woke up. This continued as I was loading the car and I could only hope that it would brighten up as I headed to Warwickshire. Fortunately luck was on our side. As I arrived [...]

St George’s Hall and Hope Street Hotel | Liverpool

St George's Hall and Hope Street Hotel in Liverpool | 23rd May 2015 I was very fortunate to be invited to play guitar for a wedding at St George’s Hall in Liverpool on Saturday. St George’s Hall is right in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. It’s a beautiful neoclassical building which plays host to a couple of incredible concert venues. I was booked to play in the 'Concert Room'. With this performance being in the heart of Liverpool city centre at the start of a bank holiday weekend, I set off with plenty of time to spare. As it happened [...]
