Richard James Classical Guitarist

Richard James Guitarist, Market Harborough

Nothing can surpass the classical guitar to add dignity and create the perfect atmosphere at your wedding. Music sets the mood during your ceremony and dictates the place throughout your celebrations - live music transforms any ceremony. Deciding which music should be played at your wedding is an important decision when planning your big day. Hit the right notes and your wedding day will be even more special.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements and let me help make your day even more memorable.

Guitar music can be performed at various times during the day including:


Prelude: I am ready to play and create the atmosphere as the first guest enters the Church or Ceremony Room.

Procession: The personal touch is always important at a wedding so I will be delighted to perform a piece for entrance of the bridal party that is both personal and appropriate for the occasion.

Register: I will also tailor this to suit the mood and will be happy to play music that is personal to the bridal party.


Drinks: I will perform a selection of music during this time that will suit the mood.

Breakfast: During the Wedding Breakfast a huge variety of guitar music will be performed. Classical, Spanish, Blues, Jazz, Flamenco, to name just a few. This will continue until coffees are served.
