Scott played for us at our wedding on 21/09/21 in Glasgow. From our initial enquiry with Scott through to our wedding day itself, Scott has been amazing. Very responsive to messages and incredibly helpful. We already knew which music we wanted to use and Scott piped beautifully for us outside our wedding ceremony venue. As restrictions meant he could not actually pipe inside the venue, Scott very helpfully pre-recorded the music we wanted for during the ceremony and sent it to us in advance so it could be used during our ceremony. I also comissioned a tune from Scott as a gift for my husband. He played the tune for him after our wedding and presented my husband with a beautifully framed copy of the music he composed. Scott was amazing on our wedding day and throughout the whole process from initial contact onwards. We would both highly recommend Scott as a piper without any hesitation. He helped to make our day special and we can't thank him enough!

Scott played our wedding in June this year. He was so friendly and approachable when discussing song choices and throughout the whole process. Every one of our guests told us how great they thought he was and we couldn't agree more. He is by far the best Piper I've heard and I couldn't recommend him enough. Thank you Scott for making our day even more special.
