Make your wedding day extra special with your piper greeting the guests, piping you into the wedding venue and down the aisle, during photos or into your wedding breakfast.
For birthdays, Anniversaries or just a celebration. Make your special day unforgettable with a visit from your Highland bagpiper, or, book me as a surprise piper for a relative or friend.
The haunting melancholy of the pipes lend a dignity to the solemn occasion which cannot be captured in any other way.
I can help you organise this traditional event, greeting the guests and piping in the Haggis. I can also recite the ‘Address to the Haggis’ and the Selkirk Grace.
Paul leads the bridal procession to the ceremony, playing ‘Highland Cathedral’
Based in South Devon, Paul regularly plays throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset. Travel is not a problem or an expensive extra and his rates are reasonable. He is usually available at short notices. He understands about time slippage and is flexible.
“We are so pleased we chose you to at our wedding, Paul. Your help and communication throughout made the planning seamless and a pleasure. You looked splendid and your playing wonderful.”
“Paul, I just wanted to thank you for your surprise appearance at our anniversary party. Your playing and performance were first rate and your humour had Edna in fits of laughter”
“We are so pleased you were available to play for my wifes funeral. As a proud Scot she would have loved your playing and choice of tunes and our Scottish relatives were very complimentary”
Thank you for keeping your playing at our wedding a surprise for Sean. As you piped me down the aisle the expression on his face was everything I could have wished for – and yes, there were some tears of appreciation.
Dear Paul, thank you so much for making Dad’s funeral so memorable. Your attentiveness and consideration throughout has been a great help and your playing, perfect.
Paul will help you with tune selection, positioning and timing, if needed, to help the occasion along. He will wear No: 1 Dress, or, No: 2 Dress (above), whichever is appropriate – you may decide.
…after a truly memorable wedding celebration for Jessica and Rick.
I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated every level of your professionalism… your sense of timing, ability to guide a clueless group of Americans on an enchanting walk to and from the chapel that no one will ever forget, your perfect choice of tunes, and your impeccable style! “Thank you” can never cover the scope of our gratitude for all you did to contribute to the magic of the day.
