What Our Customers Say

A massive thank you to John and his lovely partner for entertaining our guests at our wedding. Everyone complimented how incredible the bagpipes were played and our guests appreciated the wide range of songs- some of which I didn’t know were possible to be played on bagpipes! Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Jemma Hopkin, Blagdon, 6th Sept, 2018

John was our bagpiper for our wedding on Saturday at Miskin Manor and we cannot praise him enough – he was fantastic! There were a number of Scots attending our wedding, myself included, and they were extremely impressed! Louise was also brilliant, taking lovely photographs throughout the day! We would 100% recommend!! Thank you so much John and Louise xx.

Sarah Forrest, Ystrad Mynach, 1st Sept, 2018

I got in touch with John hoping he would perform whilst I proposed to my girlfriend.
John’s communication throughout was exceptional, offering excellent advice, willing to go out his way to make the moment special.
John was dressed in perfect attire and gave a perfect performance to match, which my girlfriend (now fiancé) absolutely loved.
A special mention goes to Louise, who was there helping make our evening one to remember, taking brilliant photos and a video.
Highly recommend!

Richard Charlton, Cardiff Castle, 25th Aug, 2018

From day one of meeting John and his wife I knew I had to book him.
My husbands dad was Scottish so booked John as a surprise.
John and his wife are extremely friendly and professional.
On the day john was outstanding, made us both cry lol I cannot recommend John enough to add that special touch to your event.
So many wonderful comments from our guests…one who doesn’t even like bagpipes but thoroughly enjoyed!

Carly MacLeod, Porthcawl, 23rd Aug, 2018

We hired John for our wedding and we’re so pleased with the service we received. John’s impact on the wedding was so much more than anticipated. He was very friendly and got everyone involved, children too who loved it. Communication was also excellent leading up to the day. We highly recommend John – everyone is still talking about the bagpipes to this day!

Yasmin Edmunds, Pontypridd, 18th Aug, 2018

After seeing and listening to John play at a wedding fair I knew I wanted to book.
Contact with John from the very beginning was excellent. He replied pretty much straight away with my query and gave full and thorough price details and terms and conditions.
We chose to go for the £135 package…. Absolute bargain for something that all our guests thoroughly enjoyed. (Even normal hotel guests complimented John) On the day John and his wife were so welcoming and friendly. Myself and bridal party had a few photos with John and we’re privileged John posted them on his Facebook page.
My now husband had requested John play one or two songs of his choice and this wasn’t too much to ask John was very accommodating to our needs.
If you want to have something that will make your guests go wow I strongly recommend John.
This is one part of our wedding we’ll never forget. Thankyou for making our wedding day that extra bit special.

Danielle & Ceirion Griffiths, Bridgend, 5th Aug, 2018

John was absolutely fantastic at our wedding on Saturday. His communication from booking up until the big day was great.
John was so professional, and everyone has commented on the goosebump moment of hearing the pipes in the church, as he did a good job of keeping it secret until it was time to walk down the aisle.
John also played through the signing of the register, out of the church and then led us from the church a 5 minute walk to our reception through a small village which was so lovely.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a piper.
Fantastic service.

Kirsty Spencer, Lower Apperley, 4th Aug, 2018

I can’t recommend enough, John was fantastic and everyone loved the bagpipes still talking about them now. From the very beginning when I seen john in the wedding fayre I booked him there and then, his communication was fantastic throughout the planning, he played all the songs we asked, my only down fall I wish we had him playing for longer, john and his wife are lovely people and i hope we get to see him again. Again Thank you so much for making our day that extra special.

Stephanie Batstone, Pontypridd, 7th July, 2018

Outstanding, I can’t recommend enough! John is fantastic and everyone loved the bagpipes at our wedding. We are so pleased.
From the very beginning John’s communication was fantastic, we also met up with him to run through ideas for the day and we felt comfortable immediately, John is friendly and very helpful and gave us good advice and guidance which we needed. John made us feel confident about the running’s of the day and he fulfilled this tenfold on the day alongside his partner who joined him on the day also.
John is very professional and it was very pleasing to hear of his fantastic reputation from other suppliers when we spoke of him, they all spoke very highly of him which added to our confidence in him and completely agree that he is great! Having many Scottish relatives visit Wales for our wedding also commenting on John’s bagpipe playing speaks volumes. It really made the day special. Again I Highly recommend.
Thank you!!!!!

Rebecca Williams, Pontyclun, 29th June, 2018

We booked John for our best friends who were getting married in June. Whilst the bride knew we kept this as a surprise for the groom who had ancestry from Scotland. John was absolutely outstanding. The singer for the register signing was taken ill that morning and John stepped in to play during this interval without hesitation. Excellent communication throughout. He guided us carefully through the tunes to what was suitable for each of the stages. I would highly recommend John.
