”We just wanted to thank-you so very much for making our wedding day special. Everyone commented on how beautiful your bag pipe music was. I especially loved being piped down the grand staircase with my new husband. I think it was then that it hit that I was now part of my new Scottish family or Clan as my nephew informed me. Your service from our first contact to arrange you playing at our wedding to the actual day was very professional, and we would highly recommend you to anyone else thinking of hiring a Scottish Piper. " Rachel and Ogilvie
“Hello , apologies because I meant to get in touch sooner but I have been really busy, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the beautiful and wonderfully played bagpipe music that you played at my mum-in-laws funeral for her and us all on the 12th April .
My daughters were really moved and felt that their beloved momma had the best send off possible. Thanks also for being so accommodating of the short notice.” -Alison Davidson – (Nottingham) – 25/04/13
