Instrumental Artists

It is becoming increasingly popular to employ live musicians to play both for the civil ceremony, pre-reception drinks & meal.

Great results can be achieved with our pianists, harpists, guitarists, saxophonists string & musical ensembles, which can be combinations of pianist, cellist, harpist, violinist etc. and of course the full monty - THE STRING QUARTET.

NEW for 2014 is our BABY GRAND PIANO HIRE - complete with pianist, adding a real touch of class (please call us for full details).

For weddings with a Scottish flavour we can provide a superb piper, in full highland regalia & if your venue has a mediaeval theme we have a wide choice of costumed mediaeval musicians playing the instruments of the period. This can be very romantic & also offer you some superb photographic opportunities.
