Paul mainly plays at weddings - He is an experienced professional full time musician and puts his all into every performance.
Paul plays at all various types of wedding ceremonies and provides live music for your afternoon drinks reception.
He also plays at evening events - typically this would be at the more intimate, smaller sized wedding party, when the couple are looking for a solo or two piece live music set to entertain the guests.
Paul plays regularly at evening weddings that are held in city centre restaurants, hotels, private function rooms and generally occasions that a full sized wedding band would be unsuited to.
If you love the idea of a smaller live band for your evening wedding party, Acoustic Weddings are the perfect soloution.

Each wedding can be different and with with the various musical options at Acoustic Weddings - Paul can help you design the soundtrack to your special day - beautiful romantic songs for the ceremony and a special blend of classic and modern guitar/piano songs for the afternoon!
One of the best packages Paul can offer, is a discount for both ceremony and drinks reception - please send an email to receive a price for the whole daytime/afternoon....
When playing solo - quite often I use a soloist amplifier - which has inputs for a microphone and guitar - perfect for playing the smallest of ceremony rooms in many venues.
If the situation requires it, P.A. equipment is used of various different sizes - but always adapted to each enviroment - I supply all my own sound equipment and have various sizes of sound and speaker systems, for any size of venue.
Paul's p.a system is professional quality sound.
Typically, Paul will play instrumental acoustic guitar/piano as the guests arrive and are taking their places for the wedding ceremony, then there will be a song/music to walk down the aisle to.
This is usually a favourite or personal song to the couple, generally a shortened version as the ceremony gets under way.
Then it's one or two songs during the signing of the register, and finally as the guests are invited to stand and welcome the newly married couple, a song/music for the exit.
If there is additional music in the afternoon, Paul will set up immediately after to begin the afternoon drinks reception entertainment.
Paul's wedding music offers great variety for his wedding couples - as an experienced pro guitarist, he prides himself in his ability to play guitar music at the highest standard.
This is something that he continually works at and especially the guitar instrumentals, for example Pink's "Just Give Me A Reason", Paul worked out his own guitar arrangement for a bride last year, who requested her favourite 'Pink' song to played as she walked down the aisle.
Paul's playing style is completely adaptable to many different genres of music - if you have any favourite bands/artists and want the songs to be the theme of your wedding - He wil be able to design a setlist just for you!
Another great advantage Paul offers is the sound of his digital stage piano - there are some truly great sounds availble for the songs that are more suited to the keyboard.
Examples would be Wings/Birdy, Let It Be/Beatles, Scientist/Coldplay, all of which are suited to the piano.
So whatever instrument you prefer for your wedding, Paul's wedding music can feature either instrument or a combination of both.
He is a passionate music fan as well as a full time performer, Paul has developed his playing and vocal style over many years of performing songs by his own influences.
Paul's trademark musical abilities are extremely versatile - couples can have acoustic guitar - piano and vocals all in one unbeatable, competitive package!
