We are so pleased that Martin was able to play at our wedding! Right from the start his positivity and prompt communication made us sure we had made the right choice. When I arrived at the venue for my wedding one of the first things the wedding coordinator mentioned was how brilliant Martin was! Sure enough, he was amazing. Martin even played us a bespoke Blink 182 medley for the bridal party entrance which was very special indeed. If you're looking for a wedding pianist, look no further! Thank you, Martin - you made our day that little bit more special.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

As a general rule it takes around 15-30 minutes to setup. However this depends on how suited the venue is to loading in, and if I am providing my Baby Grand Piano Shell. Rest assured I always leave plenty of time to arrive, so all eventualities are covered.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Absolutely. If you have any particular songs that you want me to play from my set list, that is no problem at all. Any additional song requests can also usually be accommodated.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument and amplification for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I am happy to do this for you.
