We have played many beautiful weddings. We pride myself on playing really with a great sounding bagpipe- well tuned, beautiful harmonics.
A marriage is focused on pomp, situation and setting just the right mood both with beautiful songs and well attired people. That’s how I approach a wedding. I-come fully attired in Highland equipment – kilt, coat, sporran, ghillie brogues- the works. Pressed and smart in features. Pipes polished and gleaming. My work is always to appear great, look smart and most importantly add to the celebration.
I've played different areas of a marriage; I’ve led the bride along with her escort within the aisle, the bride and groom out of the chapel, into the wedding party. I’ve also played to enjoy visitors, We also played as a surprise when it comes to bride as soon as- she ended up being therefore excited she very nearly destroyed her makeup products.
The wedding day is about the bride and her wishes. This really is the woman big day and I also was here to help with making those fantasies possible. Im punctual, trustworthy, flexible and considerate. My objective would be to kindly the girl and also make yes i actually do my component to produce her wedding unforgettable. Compared to that end we often can audition tunes for a bride and groom to-be absolutely sure they've the music they fancy.
I adore playing weddings- not all pipers do. it is exciting for me personally become part of this momentous occasion and everyone is having such a great time- the mood is infectious.
I have played outside, around, on escarpments, high cliffs, on ships, on stages and just about every-where between; like I stated I’m versatile .
Here’s the most recent overview of my piping at a marriage i did so October 2013 by the groom received Lambert:
Perfect Surprise at Our Wedding Ceremony
I hired Stephen as a surprise to my spouse at our wedding ceremony. It absolutely was a secret to all but several our suppliers that has to coordinate. Stephen did an excellent task at being versatile and expert, you start with their exceptional communication via email, phone, and Skype through interviewing him and prior to the marriage once he had been employed. I put a lot of work into discovering the right fit and I also was very happy with the option!
It absolutely was essential for Stephen to be flexible, that he did and then some. Coming in as a surprise at the end of the ceremony, I became unsure how many songs we would desire him to try out. Stephen improvised a little bit for people, switching the song selection up we'd talked about beforehand to suit the feeling perfectly, then he played more tracks for all of us whilst the celebration relocated to the beverage time (all during the same location).
Stephen even learned a song for all of us, my wife’s preferred hymn, therefore seemed wonderful. He also wore their purple kilt that I asked for to fit our wedding colors.
STEPHEN’S BAGPIPING WAS DEFINITELY AN EMPHASIZE ASSOCIATED WITH MARRIAGE AND OUR SPECIAL DAY.
I would suggest Stephen for any celebration warranting a bagpiper!!!
Another from Jamie Johnson:
Hire Stephen for the bagpipe needs…you won’t be sorry!!!
Stephen had been amazing and a complete satisfaction to utilize. We hired him as a surprise for my husband at our wedding to lead the recessional directly after we were established as wife and husband in which he executed it perfectly! He made experience of my site and organized the important points with my coordinator leaving myself with absolutely nothing to concern yourself with. He had been on time and able to go as requested and very prepared to make use of my special request. I might suggest Stephen regarding event, but specifically for weddings while he truly brings that extra-special touch. We just desire that individuals might have had him play much longer Thanks a lot again Stephen for the amount of professionalism as well as for causing our marriage! Hopefully we will require your services once more soon!
And my newest analysis from Lori Wallace:
Great Wedding Bagpiper
Stephen did a great work playing the bagpipes the processional and recessional at our daughter’s wedding ceremony at Coyote Hills Golf Course in-may 2014. The music was both effective and passionate. We obtained many compliments from wedding guests! He had been really available via e-mail when we in the beginning contacted him, and skyping using few to audition various tracks for the wedding ceremony and through the entire entire preparation procedure. He had been punctual and delivered precisely what he promised. He had been also available for photographs afterward the wedding- which many people enjoyed!
