Andrew Scott - Wedding Guitarist

Andrew Scott loves performing for weddings and parties. At your ceremony he would play as your guests assemble, then for the entrance, the signing of the resister and for the exit. He would then play during your drinks reception, or during your wedding meal. His playing is sensitive and non-intrusive.

Andrew is a classically trained guitarist and enjoys playing a mixture of Classical, Spanish and Popular music. He studied with some of the leading musicians in the guitar world at music college then toured the former USSR, produced his debut album in 2003 and travelled the world as an Assistant Cruise Director/Guitarist with Seabourn Cruise Line.

While at sea he had his own solo show and enjoyed entertaining guests in the bar with a selection of sophisticated music that everyone would recognise and enjoy.

Andrew has just released his new album of jazz standards and themes from the movies called “Andrew Scott Plays Laurindo Almeida”, June 2019.

It will add to our memories and keepsakes from a magical and wonderful day.

Elisabeth,

The music was just perfect and you received a lot of compliments from all our guests. Thanks for being "spot on" with the music, we really appreciated such brilliant and understated talent. You will be highly recommended to all.

Anna and Nicholas,

I just wanted to write to say thank you for the wonderful job you did playing the guitar for our ceremony on 7th April. We thoroughly enjoyed the music that you played and we had wonderful comments about how beautifully the music seemed to match the intimacy of the church and how unique and unusual it was. For me, the music was a real nod to and acknowledgment of my dad, and although he's no longer with us, I felt that he was present in your beautiful music. His brothers also commented on how much they enjoyed listening to you play. It was really uplifting and positive. Thank you also for the gift of CDs that you gave us, what a wonderful way for us to remember your music! We will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends and family who need a guitarist in future.

Thank you very much for Saturday! It was lovely. Everything went so quickly, and most of the night is now a blur- but we both had a fantastic day and so did all our guests! Thanks again for making our marriage ceremony more memorable.

Roseanna and Ahmet, (July, 2012)

Dear Geoff, the guitarist was fine - everything we had hoped for. He was smartly presented, his music was well received, he arrived in ample time and stayed for at least as long as we booked.

Nick & Gail, Rotary Event (May, 2013)

Thank you for the fantastic job you did playing for our wedding reception. You played beautifully and really helped to create the perfect atmosphere. We only wish we could have spent more time listening! Thank you for the CD - you are an excellent musician

Alex and Kate Hart, (July, 2014)

We are just back from our honeymoon. He was just 'perfect'. He played beautifully and was dressed very smartly and I think he enjoyed himself too. He chatted with our guests during his breaks and everyone remarked what a nice guy he was. It was an absolutely faultless booking from the very first contact I had with you. Thank you very much for providing such a professional service and we very much look forward to using your services again some day. Very many thanks again.

David and Jayne, (August, 2014)
