About Chris Morris Pianist

Celebrate in style with the North West's greatest Pianist! Featured in the National Press and on BBC2's 'Ultimate Wedding Planner'.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hi, I'm Chris, an Award-winning Pianist from the North West of England. I provide music tailored to every event, from chilled out background music to party anthems! I'm a winner of the Hitched Wedding Awards for the past two years running, and have also been featured in the National Press and on BBC2's 'Ultimate Wedding Planner'. I aim to make every one of my performances personal to you, so will consult with you on your favourite music and learn any special requests in advance. With my 22 years as a professional pianist and a brilliant (if I do say so myself!) natural ear, I can also play most requests asked for on the day. I can provide music for ceremonies, drinks receptions, or wedding breakfasts. I am self contained with my own Grand Piano shell (housing a digital piano) and PA equipment, or happy to play an acoustic piano that is already at the venue. I play music from all genres and am always willing to take requests! I will always take the time to learn a couple’s favourite songs and ask for the music you like to hear so I can best cater for your specific needs. I have a vast repertoire of songs ranging from jazz classics, pop, rock, soul, R&B and more from 50’s to the present day, so whatever you're into, I've got you covered :) I have played hundreds of weddings and other celebrations, both solo, and duetting with a female singer, and can play as long as you need me. I can even set up in multiple areas throughout the day, providing a convenient solution if you need music in the ceremony and then music for the wedding breakfast/drinks reception afterwards. Get in touch with your event details and I will go above and beyond to make your day extra special! Chris :)

Out Of This World - the perfect pianist Chris was absolute perfection from the initial booking process to meeting this true gentleman on our big day. He was super efficient in responding to any and all correspondence and could not have been any more accommodating of our requests. Chris added that touch of class. elegance & sophistication to our wedding day, by playing a beautiful selection of modern and timeless songs. He, without a shadow of a doubt, was one of the most exceptional, conscientious and efficient vendors we hired who made our day truly magical and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Don't hesitate - secure your booking with Chris today - he was worth every penny of his fee and is a genuinely lovely man to deal with and have as a presence on your big day - Thank-you Chris - . XX

Outstanding To have Chris play at our wedding on Saturday in the Lake District was an absolute fabulous experience and truly added to the atmosphere. He played beautifully keeping all our guests entertained throughout the wedding reception and into the evening. Taking requests, whilst guests were having a sing along too. Everyone commented on how talented Chris was playing the piano. Highly recommended to anyone planning an event or wedding.
