I would highly recommend Dan if you are looking for a Pianist. His playing at our wedding was really beautiful and made the ceremony even more special and emotional. He also learnt a song that we requested which was amazing.

Dan is also a lovely person and a pleasure to work with. He is super responsive and very accommodating.

We had Dan play at our wedding on 15th July 2023 and he was brilliant!
Dan was extremely responsive to emails and was more than happy to provide a quality service for all of my requests!
We had some last minute changes to our service which he accommodated happily, even moving times/venue when needed.
Dans music was beautiful and lots of guests commented on the wonderful piana player to me and my husband!
I would highly recommend using Dan, he has a huge selection of songs to chose from or can play to themes/styles/genres.
Thanks so much Dan!

Dan was absolutely wonderful! He played beautifully for 3 hours on my wedding day during the ceremony and the following drinks reception. He incorporated songs I asked for from his extensive repertoire, and he even learned 2 songs that I wanted during the ceremony. He was excellent at correspondence and generally a delight to deal with, I couldn't recommend him more!

A fantastic experience from booking, multiple rearrangements due to covid, and finally the day itself! Communication was excellent throughout, with guidance and suggestions regarding music much appreciated. The atmosphere during our wedding reception was just perfect thanks to the gorgeous piano music, and Dan being so friendly and approachable made the event even more special.
