Adding a lasting musical memory to your wedding through the playing of the hauntingly, romantic sound of the Great Highland Bagpipe will give a great ambience to your wedding celebrations.
The magical sound of the pipes will create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding adding considerably to the romantic atmosphere of your special day.
I have piped at many weddings, such as here, left, at The Loch Torridon Hotel, voted the Hotel of the Year and Wedding Hotel of the Year and also at Blythswood Square, listed in "The Sunday Times" - One of the 50 Most Amazing Hotels in the World.
As well as providing a Piping Service for you I can also assist you in supplying a harpist or clarsach player, a fiddle and guitar duo, a trio consisting of keyboard, fiddle and guitar or a Celidh Band/Wedding Band.
Please use the Contact Form above if you want me to help.
Another popular venue is Ardtalla on the Novar Estate near Evanton in Easter Ross.
In this picture I am piping the Bridal Party down to Ardtalla after the Bride had spent the previous night in the nearby cottage on the estate.
The Wedding Ceremony can be held at a Wedding Venue or a Church.
At this wedding there was a combination of both.
Initially Piping for the wedding at Croik Church, Glencalvie, and then at the reception at nearby, romantic Carbisdale Castle.
Taditionally the playing of the pipes marks the various stages of your wedding to provide the perfect atmosphere for your special day.
The Pipes can provide music for the following stages of your wedding:-
1. Pre-Ceremony - Piping your guests in or to their seats.
2. At the Ceremony for:-
a. The entrance of the Bride.
b. The signing of the Register.
c. The exit of the Bride and Groom.
3. During the taking of Photographs.
4. Welcoming guests to the Reception.
5. Piping the Bride and Groom to the Top Table.
6. To mark the cutting of the cake.
I would be pleased to discuss with you which stages of the Ceremony and Reception you would wish me to play the Great Highland Bagpipe.
I can also discuss with you which particular tunes you would like to be played at the various stages of the Ceremony and reception.
I am also available to play at other family events and occasions and I am based in Glasgow and the Highlands but am able to travel throughout Scotland.
