Very authentic and great service. Piper played a range of Scottish tunes and really added to the theme of our wedding. Thanks we had the best day ever. Lucy and John x

Piper Willox was superb. He checked in with me to see what I wanted, then checked with the registrar. He organised himself and us to walk the few steps to the ceremony, he stayed in the room and then piped us all out. It was a wonderful addition to my daughter's wedding day. Whole heartedly recommend Piper Willox.
