About Brian Cullen Classical Spanish Flamenco guitarist & classical singer

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.

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

    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!

    Fabulous! I was planning a Christmas party for the medical staff several years ago and hired Brian, hoping he was going to be okay. Well not only did he travel in a snowstorm to get there but he was fabulous and people asked for his business card. I have run into him several times now doing wedding makeup and he is still has great as ever!
