Solo Violin (with some electric!) at Rockbeare Manor.

July 18th 2021. My extremely busy (but totally enjoyable) July continued with a return to Rockbeare Manor but this time as a solo violinist. Congratulations to Megan and Ben on a beautiful wedding in the glorious sunshine. Megan wanted 'My Heart will go on' just before her entrance in memory of her Nan. Megan walked into my new arrangement of Let it go (James Bay). I played 10,000 hours and Pompeii during the signing and then the bridal party and guests 'danced' out to Came here for love (Sigala, Ella eyre). A really lovely gig and its always nice to get lots of positive feedback on the day. Thank you.

December Wedding in Crantock Cornwall.

After a challenging year it was so nice to be back playing my violin to an appreciative bride and groom and their guests.  It makes such a difference to have a live audience as you can feel the music and feel the love so much.  I have missed this all so much.  It's the little things like having a chat with the guests afterwards and talking about music and hearing them hum along quietly while you play.  2021 is going to be great for musicians everywhere.  We have all missed entertaining you but Im also certain the you have all missed us as well so watch out 2021....the year that music returns in a very big way!  It was a bit of a trip today down to Crantock Bay near Newquay but well worth it.  A lovely couple, congratulations kerry and Matt, and a lovely group of very appreciative guests.  The CBay Cafe bar bistro is a stunning wedding venue overlooking the sea and the bay and the staff where incredibly welcoming and friendly.  A really really nice day.  Thank you.

Haldon Belvedere Wedding.

I had the privilege of playing at Beth and Francis's wedding yesterday at the very beautiful Haldon Belvedere (Lawrence Castle). I used to work with Beth at Isca Academy and it was lovely to see her so happy on her special day. I played an arrangement of 'For the dancing and the dreaming' from How to train your dragon which is such a lovely melody. Congratulations to you both and best wishes for your future together.

Intimate wedding at The Cowshed

I was honoured to play at a very intimate wedding today at The Cowshed in Corwall.  I was asked by Jade and Peter to put together some original arrangements for their ceremony.  These included a new version of Galway Girl by Steve Earle for Jade's entrance and also David Bowie's Magic Dance from the film Labyrinth for the happy couple to exit the ceremony.  It was a beautiful ceremony in a really lovely setting.  This was followed by a cream tea while I played a short set of Irish/Celtic melodies.  Lovely day out in beautiful Cornwall.

Lanhyrdock Estate - Solo Violinist Wedding.

I am so very lucky to be asked to play in some very beautiful locations.  I was invited to play solo violin in the small chapel on the Lanhydrock Estate close to Bodmin.  It was a lovely traditional ceremony and I was asked to play 1000 years (Christina Perry) for the brides entrance, Cant help falling in love with you (Elvis Presley) and an unaccompanied version of Somewhere over the rainbow for the signing of the register.  The bridal party and guests made their exit to Marry You by Bruno Mars.  I also played I really like you By Carly Rae Jepsen for the very first time.  Sounded nice on the violin!  Congratulations to Samantha and Alec!  What a lovely venue and a lovely wedding.
