About Andrew

Very experienced wedding musician that has performed at over 500 weddings in the North East over the past 15 years.

I have performed at Royal Weddings, Royal Garden parties, onboard The Queen Elizabeth 2 and at many other venues around the world, including Europe and the Far East. Over the past 10 years I have provided the live music for over 400 weddings at most of the venues in the North East. I am a unique saxophone wedding musician now living in Northumberland, I studied at the world famous Royal Military School of music, (Kneller Hall) in London and enjoyed a full career as a performing military musician and instrumental instructor. As an accomplished musician and saxophonist, with over 42 years performing experience, I will help make your day a memory for you and your loved ones to treasure forever. Music is the unifying factor for the whole celebration and I understand the significant part that good music plays throughout a wedding. It welcomes your guests, announces your arrival and departure at the ceremony, provides a background atmosphere during reception drinks/photographs and throughout the Wedding Breakfast. I will listen attentively to your own personal preferences, whilst helping you with my own expert knowledge, to select the most appropriate pieces of music to highlight your personality and enhance the intense feelings of the day. My ability and unique sound, enables me to adapt my performance to play any style of music from classical, contempory hits, timeless favourites to Jazz. My musical presence would be a special addition to your wedding ceremony and celebrations. Choose my services with the confidence that you will get a professional musician that will deliver a personal, heartfelt performance. Contact me today and tick wedding musician off that extensive preparation list!

We are so happy we chose Andrew Taylor to play at our wedding. He played both songs we requested for the ceremony beautifully and created a wonderful atmosphere for all our guests. Many of our guests complimented his playing and requested some of their own choices during the wedding breakfast and every song requested he played. We would highly recommend Andrew to anyone who wants a unique sound which compliments any type of wedding and adds ambiance and emotion to your day. Thanks again!!!! Izzy and Rob Bell
