“Ed arrived with plenty of time to get ready.He piped my daughter in to her wedding perfectly and during the wedding ceremoney. He was dressed with all the highland charm as a true highlander would, quite a few guest’s thought that he was scottish. His outfit was splendidly turned out and while he waited for photographs to be taken he talked to the guests about his uniform and bag pipes. I can say that Mr Arnold was one of the best surprises that the bride and groom could have wished for!”

Mr P Moran

“Thankyou so much for playing at my wedding on Sunday. I didn’t get the opportunity to personally thankyou on sunday. When I arrived at church the look on my fathers face was a picture he was well surprised. My father explained the two pieces you played at church to my guests. I loved the way in which you piped down to the church it was very moving and made our day very special. At the reception many of the guests commented about you and your playing and how moving it was. I thankyou for making my day very special also my fathers. Many Thanks”

“Hello Ed, our family would like to say a massive thank you for the very professional job you carried out at my dad’s funeral, City Road , Sheffield. To walk into the chapel behind the pipes playing ‘Flower of Scotland’ was very emotional. With the pipes in full flow our family and guests walked behind you and the hearse down to the graveside which must have resembled the Lucknow Relief Column. To all who attended my dad’s funeral your piping will forever live in their memories. Thank you again Ed…”
