“Roy played at my wedding back in February. I’m really sorry that this has taken so long, but I just wanted to pass on my thanks. He was amazing on our special day, and really made it a huge surprise for my husband! He looked amazing, and sounded even better! We were so pleased. ” – Jo and Neale Stewart

    Roy Anderson played at my Brother’s wedding in September and he was absolutely fabulous. He played all our favourites on request and led the procession for a mile from the ceremony to the reception. He really added to the occasion and I would definitely recommend him. He does indeed still have a Scottish accent!

    Somewhat belatedly, many thanks for your good efforts at our wedding in Windsor.
    Your contribution went to make it a wonderful day for Ann and I, everything went smoothly and without a hitch. I would like to think it was all due to careful planning and using the most professional of people!

    Burns Night was a great triumph and everyone has said how good you were. We would love you to come back and do it next year on the closest Saturday to Burns birthday and I will make sure you have a bedroom.

The day was brilliant and having you there as a surprise to my husband and guests went wonderfully well. I have received some very good feedback from everyone saying how lovely it all was. Thank you again.

    Roy played at our wedding in October 2012 and really helped make the day so special. I organised with Roy for him to play our favourite tune on the pipes- Amazing Grace – for us to walk out of the ceremony, as a surprise for my (Scottish) husband. For the next 90 minutes Roy played beautifully and mingled with our guests. His friendly and charming approach with people is so natural and he was a big hit with us and all our guests. Not only does he sound great when he plays, he looks the part, he is most accommodating and flexible with his planning and he’s authentic – looking wonderful in full Royal Stewart Dress.

    I would recommend Roy to everyone. Thank you so very much for being a big part of our special day Roy.
