Wedding ceremony


What I do

Playing music for wedding ceremonies is one of my favourite things to do. I play a combination of Irish traditional and classical music on the Irish Uilleann pipes and flute.

I also team up with other musicians and singers if you require. 

All of this I can arrange for you.

Please have a look at my different "Piper Packages".

My aim is to play beautiful and romantic music to make your special day perfect.

What to expect

I expect you to be worry free as soon as you bring me on board. Wedding planning can be a stressful time (I know - I've been there!), so let me take care of the music for you. Or if you know exactly what you want, just tell me.


Some Ideas

Most of the songs can be adapted for either the church or a civil ceremony. For the church be sure to include a few that will keep your priest happy :)
