Testimonials:

It was a lovely evening everything just fell into place your music set the theme and helped enormously to create the atmosphere, many thanks it was lovely to meet you too, everyone had a great time and we have an night to remember.
Christine and David

Just a note to thank you so very much for your fantastic piano playing on Friday at our daughter’s wedding! From the very outset you helped us so much, and we were very pleased at how you ‘got involved’ and made such valuable suggestions prior to the big day. As we had chosen more ‘pop’ music for the event, we were not sure how it would translate into a piano solo, and your reassurance on this was invaluable. You were so receptive to our ideas, and keen to find out exactly what we wanted for our ‘big day’, and ensure that you delivered just what we wanted! Needless to say, your piano playing was superb, and the ceremony music we had chosen sounded fantastic. Many of our guests also commented on how much they enjoyed your extensive repertoire both before and after the actual ceremony pieces. We were impressed at how smartly attired you were, clearly making the effort to fit in with the type of event – this is so important. You were attentive, polite, chatty and great fun – we could not have wished for anyone better! Once again, thank you for helping to make our daughter’s wedding day so special!
Sonia Craske

We chose him to play at our wedding after sampling various musicians online. What stood out about him among the rest was not only his playing ability but also the depth of genres that he could play and his flexibility. he was able to give us guidance on additional pieces of music that incorporated our initial ideas, in order to help us create the atmosphere that we wanted. he gave both myself and Fiancé confidence in an area we knew little about and when the big day arrived, his suggestions and guidance coupled with an amazing performance really put the cherry on top of the metaphorical wedding cake! The Ceremony just wouldn't have been the same without him. Professional yet friendly and informal, I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion
Paul Rogers

I had the absolute pleasure of walking down the aisle to the sound of him playing our chosen song at our church wedding and the memories continue to give me goosebumps. We met with him a few months before our wedding and we knew straight away that we wanted him to play in the church. A gifted pianist, he was open to playing anything and offered us many ideas. We would definitely recommend him, he completely took the stress away from us, all I had to do was walk down the aisle and enjoy our service. He added that extra special touch. Throughout the planning stage to opening our much appreciated wedding card and CD the day after, He went above and beyond and we knew he would work with us to achieve what we wished. Thank you for being part of a cherished memory and the most special and outstanding moment of our lives!
Karen & Rhys

We chose him to play for us at our wedding. From the first moment I got in touch with him, he was nothing but helpful and a pleasure to deal with. He provided advice and guidance, but also made it clear that it was our day and so he would fit in with whatever we chose. On the day itself, he arrived early to set up, and was very professional throughout. The music we had chosen was played beautifully and he then also stayed and played for us during our reception drinks. I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are looking for a pianist for your wedding or another celebratory event. You will find him a delight to deal with and a wonderful pianist
Joanna and David

He set the perfect atmosphere at our wedding playing the piano we had hired. He is an exceptional piano player, playing both classical and contemporary music, and it was commented by both guests and staff at the venue how talented he was, and what a great idea it was to have him playing during the wedding breakfast. We can definitely recommend anyone who is contemplating having him play at any event that he will do a 5 star job.
