Paul Emmett's profile picture
Singing pianist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Paul is an experienced musician with over fifteen years experience as a performer. Having performed extensively in the East Midlands as well as the wider UK, Paul has a wealth of experience and would love to share that with you. When it comes to weddings, Paul knows that music plays a key part to your day and will make sure that you get what you want to help make your day perfect. This could be to work out a set list of music for a wedding breakfast, or to play the perfect first dance song. Having performed in some spectacular locations over the years, including Belvoir Castle, Lincoln Castle, Harlaxton Manor, Oakham Castle and even St Paul’s Cathedral in London, Paul knows exactly what to expect from a venue, and will happily deal with the staff directly leading up to an event should you prefer. With a professional, industry standard setup, Paul can perform in almost any location providing all necessary equipment. If a venue has it’s own piano, Paul will arrange with the venue a time to check the piano personally and give recommendations if needed for the big day. Paul prides himself on being professional and when performing for your big day will ensure that you don’t need to worry about the music. If you would like to meet Paul in person or over Zoom before to discuss exact details, that can always be arranged. Paul has a huge repertoire of music, and if the exact song you want isn’t in there, then that won’t be a problem. Paul will track down your requests and make sure to know them by the time of performance. If it’s background music during a wedding breakfast, music during the ceremony, or during a drinks reception, Paul can provide the perfect music for you.

Customer questions

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

I will always try my 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.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer a playlist service for free. I am however unable to provide a DJ service.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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?

Yes of course. If there are any particular songs that are in my repertoire you would like me to play I will happily add them into the set. If you would like a song that I don't already know then I should be able to arrange that as well, though there may be a small fee for that.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play

Can you learn song requests before the event?

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

From customers:

Mr J, 2 years ago

What a fantastic evening, Paul! The atmosphere was incredible and everyone had kept saying how much they enjoyed the music. We will have to have you back again!

Mr A, 3 years ago

Thank you for playing so beautifully for our wedding. It was so nice to take a moment while we were signing the registers to just listen to your playing. It was so nice to hear some of our favourite songs played in the ceremony. Thank you thank you thank you! X
