Steve Franks

Professional guitarist

Weddings:

Getting the music right is very important at a wedding and the guitar can provide the perfect accompaniment to the occasion.  Guitar music can be part of the ceremony and a background to the drinks reception or the wedding breakfast.

 

 

During the ceremony itself, I can play relaxing music as the guests arrive at the civil ceremony or church, then play chosen pieces for the entrance of the bride, during the signing of the register and finally for the exit of the happy couple.

 

 

I am often asked to play during a drinks reception and have a large repertoire of the most popular guitar pieces to entertain guests and provide a pleasant backdrop to the occasion.  Please see the Songs & Samples page.

 

Alternatively some couples ask me to play background music during the wedding breakfast.  I have several hours’ worth of popular tunes to play as guests enjoy the meal.  

I usually meet with couples to agree the music the played during the ceremony and select any favourites for the drinks reception or wedding breakfast.

 

If I don’t already know a song I can usually learn anything that can be played on the Spanish guitar.

 

Having such a portable instrument as the guitar allows me to play in virtually any wedding location -

    in the church or licensed location,     outdoors for drinks on the lawn,

    in a marquee  

- wherever required.

Testimonials:

 

Hi Steve

 

I just wanted to take some time to thank you for your efforts at our wedding earlier in the year. The service you provided was simply superb. Clearly any wedding is an important day which typically carries with it some nervousness about whether everything arranged will be as good as you expect. From the first time we spoke on the telephone I had no doubt you would live up to our expectations.

 

You were flexible enough to take requests but also had an extensive back catalogue to pull from. You were clear about costs and schedule and immediately connected with the “relaxed vibe” we were looking for during our drinks & canapés on the lawn. We arranged to send you a CD of tracks we personally liked and then you kindly offered a face to face meeting where we were able to hear you play these plus a selection of others. From our selection of tracks you were able to take the genre of music and suggest additional pieces which we had not even considered. The fact you were also then able to recommend and join forces with a percussionist to “fill in” and give a deeper sound to each piece was an unexpected bonus.

 

Overall I cannot recommend you highly enough – quite simply you provided the perfect soundtrack to our day and our guests loved every moment.

 

Many thanks & best regards

Andy

 

 

Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for making our wedding day that extra bit special by playing for us during the ceremony. All our favourite songs played so beautifully for us as we celebrated our marriage made it very personal and was really special for us both and our guests. It seems a long time ago that we sat in a cafe in Bath and listened to you play in the summer sun, we knew then that you were exactly what was needed to make our day complete.
Your patience with our wonderful bridesmaid and your duet with her of Hallelujah on the steps at the Town Hall caused a few hankies to be brought into action!  We would whole heartedly recommend your services, your sense of humour and professionalism throughout the preparations were brilliant!

Thank you again for making our day PERFECT!

Mr and Mrs L !


 

Steve provided beautiful guitar music during the meal at our wedding in March.  He was sat up on the mezzanine level and it provided the perfect background music over dinner, not too loud and so much nicer than an MP3 compilation mix playing!  It was a subtle addition which many of our guests commented on and we would highly recommend - thanks Steve!

Steve was great.   I remember the Spirit of Gentleness when the signing happened which was lovely - it was great that he learned this for us.  

Pachelbel's Canon was also very nice and had a good tempo for the walk in.  The music he played before the ceremony was nice as well.  

Thanks again Steve for helping make the ceremony beautiful.

Thanks so much for playing at our wedding.

 

You managed to perfectly select the right pieces from your repertoire to compliment the tone of the day and the beautiful setting.  So many people commented on how good you were and I shouldn't be surprised if you get a couple of bookings from it.

 

Thanks again Steve for helping make our day so perfect.

Liz and Greg
