About

"Rob is an incredibly talented guitarist. His range of songs is fantastic and the perfect music for our wedding. He is professional and set up quickly and without any hassle. I would definitely hire him again to do other event! What a star!"

Love Guitar is a modern update on the traditional classical guitarist - ideal for weddings, dinner parties, corporate events, restaurants and many other settings. The repertoire consists of modern and classic pop songs played instrumentally, with options of movie/musical tunes and vintage jazz too. The focus is firmly on romantic and feel-good hits including tunes by artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, John Legend, Queen, Madness, Foo Fighters, Spice Girls, McFly and many more!

Arrangements are perfectly suited to creating a lovely backdrop. They are unobtrusive and equally suited for listening attentively to or sitting in the background as guests chat.

Medley of 'Perfect', 'I Wanna Be Like You' and 'One Day Like This' by Ed Sheeran, Jungle Book and Elbow

Wedding Guitarist Loveguitar Dinner Guitarist Corporate Acoustic Instrumental

The essential element of this type of instrumental performance is a full repertoire of ballads. Romantic love songs creating a relaxed, sentimental mood as guests settle before a wedding ceremony, sip champagne in a drinks reception or sit and chat through a dinner party. My repertoire has favourites such as 'All of Me' by John Legend, 'Time After Time' by Cyndie Lauper, 'Your Song' by Elton John, 'Pefect' by Ed Sheeran and many more.

However guests can appreciate a little variety too. I also offer plenty of up-tempo and feel-good songs and enjoy putting together 'cheeky' arrangements. Quirky songs not necessarily expected in this style. These can be great peppered in-between the ballads to create a dynamic, interesting set – perfect for drinks receptions and dinners. Also ideal if you want a more leftfield choice for walking down the aisle or exiting the ceremony. Some examples include 'You Got a Friend in Me' from Toy Story, 'I Wanna Be Like You' from the Jungle Book, 'I'm a Believer', 'Bang, Bang' by Jessie J, ‘Get Lucky’ and even 'Mr Blue Sky' amongst many others.

As well as a repertoire of well-loved songs to choose from, I offer the option of learning an additional song of your choice free of charge. Maybe there is a special song you would like played at your event or to walk down the aisle to?

I am based around the North-West and regard Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside as my 'home' counties, but I take bookings from all over the country. This is subject to an additional travel charge, based on the distance. However, because you are booking directly with a musician and avoiding agency fees it helps keep prices competitive even with travel fee added.
Equipment - in addition to the obvious guitar - consists of a single powered speaker on a stand. This is loud enough to be heard in any environment I'm likely to be booked for, but simple to set up and transport. This means it is no trouble to move to different areas or venues between sets. All I need from the venue is a chair without arms and a plug socket. I have Public Liability Insurance and PAT Test certification for my equipment too should this be required by the venue.

Please have a wonder around the site and email me at rob@robshawguitar.com should you have any questions.

Weddings

Weddings are central to what I do and something I have plenty of experience of. If you're unsure of how a wedding guitarist might add to your day the following page might help.

The main parts of the day for a wedding guitarist are the ceremony, the drinks reception and wedding breakfast (ie. the main late afternoon meal).

Ceremony

I usually play for 30 minutes before the ceremony starts to set the mood as guests settle. I then perform the bridal entrance song – this is often a special request song for the bride and groom. As a wedding guitarist this piece is the most important responsibility and something I’m always keen to do well.  

There is a point in the ceremony where the couple are signing the register and the registrar asks guest to quietly chat amongst themselves before taking a some photos of the signing - I play some music in the background here, typically 2 - 3 songs. Finally I perform a song to accompany the newly-wed bride and groom and their guests exit the ceremony. None of these points are obligatory, so if there is anything you want to do differently just ask.

Drinks Reception

Loveguitar is ideal for providing a nice backdrop as guests mingle, sip champagne and tuck into canapés. I have options on the booking page for a 60 minute set here, or for the full drinks reception (typically around 90 minutes or so).

Wedding Breakfast

The wedding breakfast is the main meal and music can work nicely here as guests chat whilst dining. I usually start playing from when guests enter the dining area and play through. Again I offer the option of playing for 60 mins, or for the full meal up to the speeches (typically 90mins to 2 hours).

There a numerous packages in the booking page to cover most eventualities. 2 sets is a common option but some clients book 1 or 3. Though the above represent typical parts of the day to play in I am happy to work in with whatever plans you have for the day. For example I have sometimes been booked to play for an hour early evening while the main room is being turned around. If you want something different don’t hesitate to ask.

If you want me to play one part of the day in one area then the next in a different room I am happy to move my equipment. However please be aware that there is only one of me – I can do this a lot quicker than a band(!) but it does take a little time to move and set back up again.

If you have any queries whatsoever of how I can work in with your plans for your special day please just send an email and I’d be happy to discuss it.

 

Other Events

Loveguitar is well suited to providing background music to many types of occasions. Common examples include corporate events, dinner parties, family gatherings, restaurants, gala’s, charity events, birthday dinners etc. If you are looking for some thumping loud dance music to get everyone on the floor then this is certainly not the ticket. But it is perfect for any environment where you want familiar tunes played in an inobtrusive styles while guests to mingle and chat.

On the booking page there are options in 60 minute sets. If this length doesn’t suit your event I am happy to organise the equivalent playing time into different set lengths, whatever is necessary to make your event run how you want it to.

The Booking Process

The booking process is very simple. Please email me at rob@robshawguitar.com with details of your event and I can confirm availability, answer queries and provide a quote.

If you would like to proceed I will ask for a 20% deposit to secure the booking. Upon receipt I send a booking confirmation. I will ask you to have a think about any songs from my repertoire you specifically want included/excluded from the set. You are also welcome to choose a special song not in the list that you would like me to arrange for you. 

Between booking and the event I'm happy to respond to any queries you may have. I then get in touch a month before the event to confirm all arrangements, timings and song choices.

On the day I usually turn up at least an hour before I am due to start playing, giving plenty of time to set up and change.

The balance can be paid to me as cash on the day, of the event, or by direct banking the day before.

When you book via Loveguitar, you are making a direct booking with a working musician. There are no agency/third party costs involved. This allows the price to be lower for the client whilst also making sure that everything paid goes direct to the musician playing at your event.

 

Testimonials

"Rob played at our wedding on 5th June 2021. During the lead up to our wedding Rob was in contact with us and took the time to understand and talk through our plans for the day. He was really accommodating in playing our song requests on the day. All of our guests have commented how brilliant Rob was and made our ceremony and drinks reception even more special. Could not recommend Rob highly enough! "

“Love Guitar aka Rob Shaw recently played at a pre lunch reception for 40 guests in Manchester’s ‘Restaurant MCR’ before we celebrated a birthday lunch.

He impressed to say the least. He arrived early, set up his equipment and did his sound check long before guests began to arrive.

He is a talented musician and added a lot of atmosphere to the start of the lunch, his music choices were spot on for what was a very happy occasion, discreet volume but a definite presence.

He was smart, happy and we would definitely invite him to play at future functions”

“Rob played acoustic guitar, with a choice of songs we were allowed to pick, at our daughter's wedding. It made our daughter's day more special. He was absolutely brilliant and we highly recommend him. An excellent musician, professional and his fee was extremely reasonable in comparison to other musicians we searched the internet for. His service was enhanced by his friendly, professional and helpful manner. We would definitely book him for other special events."

"Thank you for helping to create the relaxed and laid back atmosphere we had hoped for.
About two weeks before our wedding we had decided we wanted an acoustic guitarist to perform at our ceremony and drinks reception! Nothing like leaving things to the last minute!! At such short notice, Rob helped us plan out what we wanted and when with no issues at all. He was every bit the professional on the day and really made the relaxed and romantic atmosphere we were after. So many guests commented on how great Rob was. A huge thanks for everything and we definitely wouldn't hesitate recommending Rob!

"We could not recommend Rob strongly enough. He played before, during and after our wedding ceremony with over 90 guests in attendance and kindly learnt and played a piece of our choice as the Bride walked down the aisle. Our guests enjoyed Rob's relaxed and fun set list (which he was happy to tailor to our taste) which was played to an excellent and professional standard. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Love Guitar for your wedding."

"Rob did an excellent job at our recent Corporate Event. He arrived in plenty of time to set up and instantly put me, as the organiser, at ease. It was the hottest day of the year, in a listed building which had no air-con and yet somehow he managed to remain professional, entertaining our guests in what I can only say were extreme weather conditions! I would highly recommend Rob. His playlist is never ending, with something for everyone and was played at the perfect volume so not to encroach on the guests who were mingling and chatting. Thank you again Rob, great job from The Momentum Team!"

"Rob played at our wedding (ceremony & drinks reception) in April and was the consummate professional throughout - easy to work with, great communication. He travelled quite a distance to be with us, which we were very grateful for - it's difficult to find a purely acoustic guitarist! Rob played beautifully, learning 'A Million Dreams' for the register signing and generally dazzling our guests with a variety of carefully chosen songs. Several guests commented on how good the music was - Rob really added something very special to our day. We would highly recommend Rob!"

About Me

Wedding Guitarist Loveguitar Dinner Guitarist Corporate Acoustic Instrumental
Wedding Guitarist Loveguitar Dinner Guitarist Corporate Acoustic Instrumental
Wedding Guitarist Loveguitar Dinner Guitarist Corporate Acoustic Instrumental

I graduated from the University of Salford with a 2:1 BA (Hons) degree in Popular Music and Recording, and since then have continued to work as a performing musician and guitar tutor.


I've always had a varied taste in music which led me to playing many styles - rock, pop, indie, blues, classical, jazz, folk, heavy metal and more. I enjoy the fact that these diverse styles of music have much in common, and a lot of the fundamentals of being a good guitarist and musician carry across the genres.
It is this approach that I like to bring to Loveguitar, using the fingerstyle techniques of classical and folk guitar and the orchestral approach of putting together multiple lines of music, but applying these to modern and classic popular songs. My wide appreciation of music allows me to invest into and enjoy all the songs I play.


As well as playing solo as Loveguitar, I performed at many weddings and dinners over 10 years as one half of a vocal/guitar acoustic jazz duo. I also get to play wedding receptions in a very different style as a stand-in 'dep' guitarist for function bands - allowing me to plug in the electric and play a mix of party songs and indie-rock from Taylor Swift to Guns 'n' Roses.
In addition to playing live I work as a guitar tutor. This includes teaching in secondary and primary schools and tutoring a roster of private students.
