Tonight I played some live acoustic music at Goldbrick House, Bristol for the Bristol Wedding Tweet Up. The Tweet Up is an informal get-together arranged by Kirsten aka The Little Wedding Helper for people in the wedding industry. It’s a good excuse for us all to get together, have a glass of bubbly, some canapés and a good chinwag!
Goldbrick House is a lovely venue on Park Street in the centre of Bristol. I’ve played a couple of weddings there before, but never been up on the top level before (the Orangery). It’s absolutely beautiful with some great views.
Here’s my set lists from tonight:
Bob Marley - Three Little Birds Eagle Eye Cherry - Save Tonight George Ezra - Budapest Zutons/Amy Winehouse - Valerie Jack Johnson - Better Together Jason Mraz - I'm Yours Tom Odell - Grow Old With Me Beatles - Here Comes The Sun Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay Blackstreet - No Diggity Ed Sheeran - Don't Bastille - Pompeii Avicii - Wake Me Up

I’ve played at a lot of fantastic places over the last few years, and this year I’m linking up with some of my favourite venues across Bristol, Bath and South Wales.
This first to announce is Aldwick Court Farm and Vineyard – an amazing wedding venue located in the Mendip countryside, within easy reach of Bristol. I love playing weddings at Aldwick – a perfect location where you can have exclusive use of the venue, in a relaxed setting with a great vibe. It’s also licensed for Civil Ceremonies, so you can host the whole wedding at one venue.
I’ve played guitar at Aldwick many times, and have loved it every time! I’ve played at the wedding ceremony in the old barn, and played drinks receptions/evening events in the new barn. It’s also possible to have live music outside when the weather is good.
The kind folk at Aldwick have included my on their suppliers lists, so it’s great to link up with one of my favourite venues in the area!
Contact me here for more information.
I had a great time playing guitar at the Chosen Wedding Fair last weekend! Lots of fantastic suppliers turned up to exhibit – and despite the wild Welsh weather in Cardiff, lots of brides and grooms-to-be turned up to get some wedding inspiration.
The space at Portland House in Cardiff Bay was great – particularly good for me as there is a large stage area where I was able to set up my gear and perform some acoustic songs to the whole wedding fair. I also exhibited at the fair, displaying my showreel and offering demo CDs. I have another announcement coming up regarding Portland House – more details soon!
The Little Wedding Space is Bristol has now closed it’s doors to the public. A pop-up wedding exhibition, the LWS was only open for three weeks, but in that time many wedding couples visited to get inspiration and ideas for their big day. I was honoured to play at the launch night, and would like to thank The Little Wedding Helper aka Kirsten, and Ruth Garner Photography for inviting me to play, and including my demo CDs in the inspiration corner. Keep an eye on the LWS website for details of the next pop-up!
The next wedding fair I’ll be performing at will be The Vintage Wedding Fayre in Bristol on the 29th March. If you want to come down to hear me sing and play, and chat all things live wedding music, pop down to Freemason’s Hall, Bristol from 11am til 3pm.
