North West Wedding Guitarists
A graduate of Salford University with a degree in Popular Music & Recording, Paul is a sought after session musician guitarist for function bands and wedding bands. Paul is also a highly respected teacher in Bolton, Greater Manchester. He recently gave up his job as a guitar teacher in schools to focus full time on wedding and entertainment bookings.
Paul is a very accomplished classical and fingerstyle guitarist and is able to create full arrangements of songs on a single guitar. These arrangements range from classical favourites to pop songs and even TV themes. Paul is comfortable playing almost anything and can arrange most songs into a solo guitar piece. He can perform on either classical guitar or electric guitar, or a combination of both to suit your song choices.
Picture the scene: a beautifully decorated ceremony room. Your nearest and dearest sit in rows of perfectly dressed chairs, with a nervous groom and his best man stood awaiting your arrival. In the background are the calming tones of a classical guitar playing well known pieces, such as Pachelbel's Canon and fingerpicked versions of your favourite pop songs too...
Dream Day Music brides have two guitarists to choose from in John and Paul. Both are acomplished North West based guitar artists, proficient in classical, jazz and modern pop, as well as other styles, regularly used by household names such as Russell Watson and Johnny Wilkes to name but two.
As well as performing, both work as arrangers, rewriting existing music for the guitar. These arrangements range from classical favourites to pop songs and even TV themes, with almost nothing impossible to arrange! Our guitarists can perform on classical and electric guitars and will discuss your preferences to you in the lead up to your Dream Day.

How Soon Should I Book?
We find that couples booking guitarists book slightly sooner than for other instruments, rarely any later than a year in advance of the big day, and up to two and a half years in advance!
Our advice: just book your entertainment as soon as you know what you want; along with photographers, magicians etc, each musician's work is unique and it is these sorts of suppliers who'll make your wedding personal to you, and memorable to your guests.
Paul has performed at weddings throughout the North West, including wedding music in Liverpool, Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, Bolton and Greater Manchester.
