Ed performed at our wedding reception on Friday and was incredible. He was very professional and helpful from the minute we booked him and he didn’t disappoint us on the day. He was very patient as we were later than planned and he played as the guests arrived – who all said how fabulous he sounded. Thank you so much for being part of our day!

We just wanted to say thank you to you for your magnificent bagpipe playing that set the mood for our wedding beautifully. Many of the guests commented on how wonderful it was to have the sounds of the bagpipes playing as they arrived and it created the ambience that we were looking for. The bride heard you playing as she was getting ready and it almost moved her to tears (in a good way!).
