A selection of recent references and thank you notes sent to me after playing for various events.
The only wedding piper covering Glasgow and south Scotland to be nominated for the VOWS awards in the music and entertainment category.
If you are a Bride or Groom and looking for a Scottish piper for your wedding then please have a look around the sight and contact me if you require further information.
Based as an Ayrshire piper I still travel to venues throughout Scotland and will be happy to consider venues further afield in UK or Europe.
Would just like to thank you for playing at our wedding at Western house last month. You were fantastic and everyone was commenting how good you were.

The day of the wedding went better than we could have hoped for Bryce and in no small measure this was thanks to the wonderful piping from you and you're above and beyond efforts to please our guests.
You were also helpful with the tricky dress manoeuvres in the church and I am very grateful for the calm assistance at what was, as you know, quite a stressful stage in the proceedings.
Once again, many thanks for your help which was greatly appreciated by us.

Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in emailing you. Our feet don’t seem to have touched the ground since the wedding, but that is no excuse.
Lauren and I would like to say a HUGE thank you for playing at our wedding back in May. You were absolutely perfect, and we’ve had so many guests comment on how amazing it was to have a piper as good as you there for our special day. Not only that, but your service from the moment we made the first enquiry, through to liaising with Lauren about her music choices, to the actual day itself was amazing, so thank you very much for that too.
As we live in England this might not happen a lot, but if we are ever asked for a recommendation we will absolutely give them your details.
Thanks again, and we hope you have a busy rest of the wedding season.
Jon and Lauren

Sorry it's taken me so long to get round to emailing you but I just wanted to say a huge thanks for playing at our wedding on 13th July. I loved how you came out to the road to walk our car into the church and it looks great in the video clip that we've seen so far. It was a lovely touch and made it all seem more grand and gave a good build up for everyone waiting on me to arrive. The Trumpet Voluntaire was great to walk up the aisle to and you got the crowd going when we all walked into the dining hall!
Apologies we never got to speak to you much on the day or even get some pictures taken with you but there was just so much going on! Our photographer sent us our photos this week so I've attached a couple for you in case you'd like to display these on your website.
Thanks again, you were great! I'll definitely recommend you to anyone I know that's getting married in the future!

Thought I would give you a little email of thanks!! We couldn't have asked for more, friendly, professional and an outstanding piper! The little things like sorting my sash and playing up on the cathedral balcony was amazing. We cannot thank you enough for learning the Glens of Antrim to pipe Elaine up the isle, many pipers simply told us they could not do it and to pick something else. You went out of your way to learn our special tune and we are truly grateful. We will be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a piper. Great day, great guy, thanks again Bryce!!
A Happy bride and groom
