Making weddings awesome!

That’s what I do!

I have been playing weddings all over the north west of U.K. since Live Piano Ltd (formerly known as The Live Piano Experience – my company with my wife Liz Hendry Wedding Pianist) was set up in 2013. There has been so many awesome weddings it literally has become too many to remember…….I just remember they were all awesome! Every wedding is unique and every Bride and Groom is different. I try to treat every wedding with the unique approach it deserves and bring all of my energy and enthusiasm every single time.

What can I do for your wedding?

Below is quick description of the parts of the day I am available to play for. If you need to know more about wedding music……what works……..what to choose…..then take a look at my one of my Wedding tips posts called The best, most popular wedding songs for your ceremony

Check out some of the wonderful weddings I have been fortunate enough to be part of. If you want you wedding to be as amazing as them you could start by contacting me to check what I can do for you. Whether it be singing that special song as you walk down the aisle……getting those happy tears flowing; or taking requests during a fun drinks reception or whipping up some action to make a ”non-boring” wedding breakfast then I am the Piano Guy you need.

Wedding Ceremony

I arrive 1.5 hours before the ceremony and set up in the ceremony area (which can be outside weather permitting) I start playing when the guests are being seated in the ceremony room – approx 15 minutes before the ceremony time. Then right on cue I play as the bridal party and bride enter, during the signing of the register (usually 2-3 songs) and then for your grand exit!

Oh and that special song?…..Check out my Song List and expert advice on choosing wedding music for your ceremony. If your song is not on the list then contact me and maybe I can learn it specially for you.

Drink Reception

This usually happens immediately after the ceremony. The guests will follow the bride and groom out of the ceremony and be shown to an area to have a drink and mingle. Often the bride and groom will take this opportunity to have photos taken. At this point your guests need a little entertainment and this is where I really shine! With up to 1.5 hours of live music music to make this time memorable and fun, taking requests from the guests so they really feel connected to the event and energised for the rest of the day!

Wedding Breakfast

The first meal together as a married couple, hence the term breakfast, but this meal is usually mid afternoon. Here the newlyweds sit with their guests and enjoy what is often a three course meal. I provides appropriate music while you dine for up to 2 hours. Whether you prefer it laid back or if you want your guests on your feet singing (or both), I can make this happen. No more food coma for your guests. I keep them alert and prepped to transition in to an awesome party night with your DJ or band of choice.

Not just piano music……..but piano with personality!
