I am very passionate about music and it has been such an important part of my life since a very early age. I believe that at its most effective, music can have a profound impact on its listeners. It can bring back long lost memories. It can relax and create a warm glow inside. It can take people out of everyday stresses and strains. It can also create the urge to get up and dance or make you feel closer to loved ones.
Following over 3 decades of total dedication to the art of guitar, I have built up a set that I believe at times creates each of these varying emotions for my listeners. My unique instrumental style has developed from studying Classical, Spanish, Flamenco, South American and Blues. Unlike many of my peers I have had little formal training and rather than hinder me, I believe this has given me a unique take on applying my skills to a vast array of different tunes. The majority of my arrangements draws from these differing styles and applies them to contemporary music. Only the most effective tunes from each genre are included in my set.
I can think of no job I would rather than do than direct my passion and energies to a couples wedding day. I would consider it an honour to be given the chance to become part of your big day and hopefully make it even more special with my music. Please get in touch for further details.

I am flexible and can perform at the different sections of the wedding depending on the needs and desires of the wedding couple.
This is the most popular time for wedding couples to utilise me. For a full 2 hours everybody gets to hear my music and creates a very relaxed and happy atmosphere whilst people are dining.
Some couples like to have some background music as guests are arriving to the ceremony. There is also music to be played for the entrance, exit and the signing of the register. Classical guitar can really add to the ambience of this important part of the wedding.
RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS
My music provides the perfect background ambience to guests who are dining or just having a drink. Although the music officially “background” music it often becomes a key part of the evening with many guests returning again and again when I hold a residential.
One off events are also an option so please get in touch for further information. I have performed at many of the top venues in the North West including several performances at the Cloud 23 bar in Manchester, The Midland Hotel, The Hilton Hotel, The Palace Hotel, La Tasca Restaurants, Zizzi Restaurants, Expo Lounge Didsbury and many more.
Following the wedding ceremony is the drinks reception in which photographs are taken and people relax prior to the wedding breakfast. This period lasts between 90 mins to 2 hours on average and will keep guests entertained whist photos are being taken.
I have performed all over the country for FTSE 100 companies who require relaxing background music for their clients/employees.
Just wanted to say a quick, but very sincere thanks for playing so beautifully at our wedding at Mottram Hall. Your music created the most amazing ambience to our day. (We are so glad that we found you in La Tasca that night about 2 years ago!)
Everyone commented on how beautiful the music was. In particular, when I walked down to the rose garden with my dad, and the sound of you playing Fields of Gold could be heard, it felt like the world came to a standstill as it sounded so beautiful. It really was a moment that I didn’t want to end, and that we certainly won’t forget.
Also, it was great to know you had everything under control in terms of when to play and all the advice you gave etc, so thank you for your attention to detail and organisation on this front.
I will be recommending you most highly, and am already thinking about what I may be able to book you for again in the future!
Please feel free to use our comments as a testimonial / review / feedback.

“Good morning Peter,
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for performing at our wedding. All I can say is that you were amazing – your guitar playing is beautiful and created what I can only describe as the best atmosphere for a wedding that I have ever been to.
On the subject of your mind magic….. Wow! All our guests were talking about you, several have taken your details from me in regards to performing at their forthcoming weddings. I always think it’s the special details that make an event memorable and I know that you have definitely ticked that box for us.
Once again thank you, Saturday was the best day of our lives – we are still on cloud nine.
I hope to see you at our friends weddings in the future…..
Jenny & Warren Hudson”
“Peter, thanks so much for playing at our wedding. We had lots of people comment on how lovely your playing was and I believe you even have a new 3 year old fan! I enjoyed hearing “Here Comes the Sun!” Thanks.
We had a wonderful day
