Welcome > Wedding Bagpiper

Wedding Bagpiper

As your Wedding Bagpiper I can play at various times during your wedding day, from prior to the Bride’s arrival until introducing the Bride and Groom to cut the wedding cake. See the tabs below showing the different parts of your wedding day when I can play as your Wedding Bagpiper, and choose your options on the Bagpiper Booking Form. You can also listen to the Wedding Bagpipe Music I play at the different parts of your Wedding day.

If you are eloping, this is a little different, so please jump to Elope to Scotland!
