For much of my career I have lived in the Southern hemisphere where I performed at all of the weddings reviewed below. 
I have now permanently immigrated to the United Kingdom and am based in Essex. 
Contact me today to check my availability to perform at your UK wedding!


"Five stars - Highly Recommended! Damon played at the ceremony for our wedding and I don't think the music could have been better! From start to finish Damon was professional, providing an extensive list of music to choose from and also making some very useful suggestions from his wealth of experience. There was a vast array of musical styles played, Damon serenaded our guests at the beginning with works from Mozart, through to Beatles hits and also snuck the Star Wars theme in too! It all came together so effortlessly, we had many of our guests comment on how beautiful it was to have a solo guitarist play. I could not recommend Damon any more so, any person wishing to book him will not be disapointed."
