"We booked to play at our son and our future daughter in laws wedding. had arrived at the church early and had made himself familiar with the surroundings. He looked absolutely fantastic in full highland dress and when he began to play the pipes it made the hairs stand up on your body. We left the choice of music to the piper and he played the right tunes at the right times. He was very friendly and obliging and had many photographs taken with our guests. He received many compliments for his wonderful playing and we would like to add our heartfelt thanks to you for making a special, proud day just perfect".
