For centuries the Great Highland Bagpipe has been used to inspire warriors, celebrate victory and welcome royalty. It is an instrument of impact, being most effective when used for short periods to announce major events, such as the Bride arriving at the church.
I have a wealth of experience performing at weddings and a repertoire that will ensure you have exactly the type of music needed for your Big Day. Although based near Belfast, I am willing to travel the length and breadth of Ireland to provide an unparalleled service and will gladly take the skirl of the pipes to the most unusual of places.
The following packages are available to meet your requirements.
£250 - Ceremony Package - I arrive up to one hour before your ceremony to set up and can stay up to one hour after your ceremony has finished.
£400 - Ceremony & Reception Package - As above, but I will stay up to the start of dinner. Includes travel between venues within 30 miles of Belfast.
If you need me to travel over 30 miles from Belfast there may be an additional travel expense.
The Royal Treatment
If you are looking for a more unique experience, why not consider the options below:
£200 - The Royal Treatment: Sunrise - Follow royal tradition and be attended upon like a King or Queen with your own personal piping wake up call!
This is great for a little bit of entertainment on the morning of your wedding and is often booked as a surprise! I can play at any time of your choosing and recommend keeping it short and sweet with between 10-20 minutes of playing. If you happen to be staying in a hotel, this can be a great surprise for all your guests as they get breakfast and equally great for all your neighbours if staying at home.
£200 - The Royal Treatment: Sunset - If your reception is in a suitable location and at a suitable time of year, I can play for you as the sun sets to mark the end of your fantastic day.
The image of a piper silhouetted against the sun is an iconic image that could be yours depending on your venue and the weather (difficult in NI I know!). It can be a great way to mark a final toast for the evening or maybe even to start a fireworks display.
