Selecting a Bagpiper for your event can be a bit of a minefield. Unfortunately it’s all too easy to select a Bagpiper that really is just not up to standard. Do make sure that whichever Piper you select that he or she can play as well as looking the part. Just make sure you hear them play online before booking, a Bagpiper with limited ability sounds truly awful and can potentially ruin your event.

Having a Bagpiper at your wedding is a useful way of introducing the various stages throughout the day.
How a piper is used is very much a personal matter.
Cliff can use his past experience to help you decide the best format to meet your requirements.
Here are some popular options;-
• Piper plays guests on arrival stopping 5-10 minutes before the bride arrives.
• Piper plays to signal the bride’s arrival.
• Piper plays outside as the bride and groom exit from the service.
• Piper plays during photos.
• Piper can also be included in photos if required.
A Bagpiper can play at various stages of the proceedings and will play appropriate tunes based on the family’s specific requirements.
Cliff is highly experienced and respectfully sensitive to such occasions which can often be very sad. Cliff will discuss and honour your personal wishes as well as any last minute changes or requirements on the day.
