Have you thought about having beautiful classical guitar music for your wedding?

I have been playing and teaching the classical guitar for nearly 30 years. I am originally from South Africa and was founder of the Durban Classical Guitar Society in South Africa and have performed extensively in South Africa and the USA. I am also a trained tenor and will sing if requested.

Here is an excerpt of a review from a wedding I played at last year. "Brian is a professional of the utmost caliber, and a gentleman as well. I would recommend him most highly for any event, but his sensitivity to the needs of a wedding seems to be a special talent he possesses."

I do pre-ceremony, prelude music about 20min while the guests arrive and seat .
Then processional music for parents, bridesmaids and finally the Bride.
I can play or sing interlude music (Wedding song(there is love), Ave Maria etc)
Recessional music - Wedding march or something modern or different.
Cocktail hour - Mixture of classical, contemporary, Brazilian and Spanish.
Dinner as above with classical and romantic music and songs.

Here is some of my repertoire to play for your wedding.
For the wedding processional - Mendelssohn's Wedding March - or Wagner's Bridal March. Pachebel's Canon in D major or anything else you would like. Please listen to my music samples.


For the guests as they arrive. Generally I play for 20 mins approx prior to the ceremony.
Bach
Jesu Joy of mans desiring. Rondo and Gavotte . Prelude from the 1st Cello suite and Little Prelude. Bouree in e minor, Air on a G string
Vivaldi
Autumn from Four seasons. Lute suite in D 3 movements.

For meditative pieces during readings or while you sign the register
Two beautifully romantic pieces
Romance or Spanish Folk song or Recuerdos de la Alhambra(Memories of the Alhambra- a very old Moorish castle overlooking Granada in Spain.
Two Pavanes (15th century stately dances ) by Luis Milan.
Ave Maria (Schubert)Vocal or instrumental
The Wedding song(There is love) vocal

For music afterwards.

Some standards including Beatles, light flamenco and light jazz(Anji, Classical Gas standards),Latin American, Theme from the Deerhunter movie etc

Some light Flamenco (Alegrias, Malaguena , Soleares etc)

Villa- lobos Preludes and Studies (contemporary Brazilian classical guitar)

Brian played for my sisters ceremony at Wolfes Neck Farm in Freeport Maine. The music was perfect and Brian was very accommodating. I contacted him very close to the date of the wedding and didn't give him much direction other than that my sister loves the Beatles and he did an awesome job. He even had an amplifier that did not require electricity which was perfect for our location. I would highly recommend him!

Brian was wonderful, he was on time, very professional, his choices of music were perfect . We had an outdoor wedding in an English garden setting, with a small garden party following. His guitar playing just added to the whole event. I can't thank him enough for the wonderful job that he did. I would recommend him to anyone who is planning a wedding. Thanks Brian for a making the day perfect.

We loved working with Brian. He was very easy to work with before the event, we communicated mostly by e-mail as that was easiest for us, and we were so happy to meet him the day of our wedding. He arrived on time and was set up and playing beautiful music throughout the evening. Everyone commented on what a wonderful job he did. Overall, we are so glad we hired Brian as his music added such a special touch to our evening!!

Brian's music is simply beautiful. He played prior to my daughter's wedding and he sang the "Wedding Song" during the ceremony and it was just perfect. The wedding was outside and it was very windy and cold but Brian worked right through it without any problems. I received many compliments from the guests on the beautiful music. I highly recommend him for any occassion. Mary Melville, Gardiner, ME

Brian Cullen gave far more than 100 percent ... and at the very last minute.

On August 2nd, after a few brief email exchanges, some notes and ideas from me, and a few specific songs, Brian left shore and arrived on Monhegan Island, 17 miles off the coast of New Harbor, Maine. In a couple of hours, with no direction from the church, no electric hook-ups, and a few words from my mom, he began to play for my wedding ceremony. Obviously, he had taken in every word I said, understanding somehow everything I had in mind. ... It was magical.

He played beautiful classical songs, and had me exiting the church with "Here comes the sun." Later, he played at our small reception. Just Brian and his guitar. When we finally met, I was so thankful, I hardly had the right words. ...

Music is a big part of my life, as it was of that day.

Thanks to Brian for helping to make it all so special.
