Kerr and Pond Family


Would just like to say a 'Big Thank You' for the service you provided at our wedding, Piper was fantastic during the day, friendly but very professional at the same time and the band in the evening really made the night!, our guests are still talking about it.

Thanks again

Avril


Myself and Stuart would like to thank you very much for the fantastic service you provide for our wedding. The piper Kevin was absolutely fantastic on our day, many of our guests commented on how great he was. We really can't thank you enough and have already passed your number on to some people! Thanks again.

Martha and Stuart Crockett


I am just writing to ask you to pass on our thanks to the Pipe Band that entertained us at my daughter, Claire's, wedding at Prestonfield on Saturday. They were absolutely terrific and everyone much appreciated their performance.

We rather over-ran dinner and while I am sure that often happens please extend my apologies for this as I am sure it was a rather tedious wait - however their performance was perfect and I do hope that they had time to enjoy a drink in the main house afterwards.

My many thanks again for your help in organising this for us.

Catriona Burns


I hope you could tell from the reaction of our friends that you were a real hit!!! People just could not stop talking about the experience and loved you, your Scottish outfit and everything you did. Very special thanks for being the climax to a wonderful stay in Edinburgh.

The hotel staff were so kind, flexible and extremely efficient, all the people we met in the city were so helpful and friendly, the AAA coach driver was super and having been in the RAF was stationed near Lincoln and has friends who live in the nextdoor village. All in all a wonderful bit of PR for the city.

We do hope that your leg mends soon so that you can get back to the lifestyle you so obviously enjoy - you are certainly looking good on it. I hope I counted your fee correctly, with the additional tenner to have a 'wee dram' sometime, as you were not able to have it with us. I know you are not drinking very much these days, so just a treat when your trainer allows you!

Our thanks once again and here's to seeing you on board Saga Ruby!

With very best wishes from both of us

Barbara


Just back from Balbirnie and had to say how fantastic the band were. Everyone but everyone were totally blown away.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to all, what a great way to get the 2nd half of the evening off to a flying start. There was not a dry eye in the house.

Fanblodytastic!!!!!

Gary and Pat (the new Mrs. Muirhead)


Hi Steven, I hope you are well. I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Norton House on the 20th August. We had an absolutely amazing day and all of our guests loved every minute of it. Lots of the guests commented on how good you were and how much they loved the pipes.

Sorry for the late email, we're not long back from our honeymoon in New York and Las Vegas. Unfortunately we didn't win big in Vegas so it's back to normality and work for us now!!

Thank you again for everything you did on our wedding day. I won't hesitate in passing your name on to anyone who is looking for a piper for their event.

Craig and Janis Thomson


Its taken us a while to get round to everything after the chaos of the wedding but just a quick e-mail to say thanks for excellent job you done at our wedding on the 19th of June. Especially since we booked you so last minute. No one knew we had booked a piper so it was a nice surprise for everyone and they all commented on how excellent you were. We were more than happy to subit a vow award nomination for you and hope you do well as you deserve it....especially the heat you had to bear on our wedding day in all your gear!!

Thanks again,

Mr & Mrs Penman


Thankyou very much for playing the music for my wedding. We were both very pleased with all the songs you played. Stephen was particularly pleased with magnificent Seven coming back up the aisle. I myself love walking down ailse to my dads favourite Highland Cathedral, and then Star Wars for a bit of fun. The bagpipes just added to the atmosphere and excitement of our day. Added a wee pic of you at the top. Thanks again

Roseann Quigley


Just wanted to drop you a quick line before we go on Honeymoon to say a big thank you for performing at our wedding at the Abbey on Friday.

Our guests were really impressed, especially my friends/family from down south as we don't see many pipers in England (unfortunately).

Thanks again, it was great!

Jez & Hayley Grimwood


Just wanted to drop you a line to say a "HUGE" thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday 8th May at The Queensferry Hotel - the whole day was perfect and you helped in being part of it :o) Thank you also for playing my Scottish Soldier for me!

I have attached some pictures of yourself that I have received from others - thought you might like to have them?

Tracy


I wanted to send you a message to say a HUGE thank you for your help with organising a piper. David, who came to play at our wedding on Saturday, was so fantastic. His playing was amazing and was very much enjoyed by us and all our guests. It was particularly special for all our Australian guests. David's piping helped to make our day the most amazing, special day that it was and not to mention what a lovely and professional guy he is.

Again thank you very much for organising this for us.

Mairi


Just to say thank you for playing at Morag and Martins Wedding on Sat 3rd. Morag got very emotional when she heard you play, she had said to Martin that she wished that they could have afforded to have a piper playing at their wedding. So to have you there made her and Martins day.

Morag and Martin


A few Pics of your wonderful piper….. feel free to send them on to David or use them for advertising etc.

If you want a customer testimonial let me know.

Lisa Donald


I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for all your help in providing a piper for our wedding at Edinburgh Castle on 26th September. Robert Thomson did a fantastic job and we had a great day.

Thanks again and best wishes

Elaine and David Muirhead


Just wanted to say a very big thank you to you the most amazing pipe band ever. They were unbelievable and I had so many lovely comments about them. I managed to not cry all day until they started to play and by the time they got to the last of the mohicans I was a blubbering mess! Thank you so much for making our wedding so special.

Thanks again.

Becky


Just wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for the excellence service we recieved. The piper was present immaculately, and was in full highland dress as requested. He piped beautifully, and was a great thrill for all the guests. Many had come from different parts of the world, and it was lovely to show off a Scottish Piper! Piping our daughter and husband to the table gave a real sense of occasion and it was exciting to watch. I have nominated you for the Vows award. Good luck, you definitely deserve it. Many thanks again

Kind Regards

Kim Wombwell


A HUGE thanks for being part of our special day, both during the day and at night!!

We all loved it… I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many people on a dance floor and it added to the magical aspect for the French guests… a true Scottish wedding!!

Thanks again and I am sure you will be getting more booking soon…. Maybe even some French ones!!

Here are a few photos to remind you of the day

Thanks!!

Michelle Creighton


Thanks for the great job you guys did on our wedding day at Guthrie castle on 5th October, he made our day.

Nigel and Michelle Bushby


A quick note to thank you so much for a wonderful service at the wedding.

You started the whole thing off and really got it going at the reception.

Many thanks, if you need a testimonial, just advise.

Gus Smeaton


Your piper played at my gran's funeral on Wednesday of this week and I just wanted to say what a lovely lovely job he did. My nan was a scottish highlander from the Isle of Lewis and would have really enjoyed his playing. Many of the individuals at the funeral were of Scottish heritage and commented on how well he played.

So many thanks, we were very pleased.

Lisa Hannington


Just a quick note to say a big thank you to yourself and our piper John Nivens- everyone thought that he was brilliant and Ray and i will most certainly be recommending your company to future friends and family.

Erin


Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for all of your help at our wedding at Guthrie castle. The guests (especially all of the Sri Lankan's) thought your pipers dress and piping were amazing. We had many comments about how approachable and friendly you were when people came to talk to you. Please also pass on my thanks to your DJ, Ceilidh band and caller who were also very approachable and professional. I wish we'd been a bit more organised so we could have had slightly more Ceilidh but hey ho.

Again many thanks, and if you would like a testamonial for your website (don't know if you have them on there) then please let me know as it would be my pleasure to provide one.

Craig and Anusha Jack


Just wanted to write and thank you for all the help and assistance you gave to us in organising a piper for our wedding at Lennoxlove last month (4th July). Could you please pass on our sincere thanks to the piper who played for us. He played beautifully, was exceptionally courteous and a pleasure to have sharing in our day. We both thought that it was especially lovely that he went out of is way to warmly congratulate us. Here are a few snaps (all fairly similar but thought you may be able to use them). With very best wishes

Mark and Rachel Livingston (nee Kemp)


Thank you for playing at Gary and Samantha's wedding on Saturday. Thankfully, the weather was not unkind to them and they had a wonderful day.

The playing of the badpipes helped to make their day complete and put the finishing touches to the wonderful backdrop of Guthrie Castle.

I especially enjoyed the tribute to the bride and groom at the wedding meal and your fancy handwork whilst playing the final tribute.

All in all it was a pleasure to hear the pipes at their wedding and once more would like to say a big thank you on their behalf. (Gary and Samantha are visiting the Orkneys at the moment then leave for Australia again at the weekend - too short a visit!)

Patricia Stewart


We are back at work now (unfortunately) after an amazing wedding and fabulous honeymoon!

I just wanted to write and thank you (and the other piper and drummer) for doing such a wonderful job – you all sounded and looked brilliant and our guests thought you were wonderful! We had such an amazing wedding day – everything went to plan – and the entire day exceeded our expectations! Even the weather was kind to us and allowed us to use the walled garden. Our photos have also turned out very well – and Scotia Pipers are very photogenic! From our friends’ photos, you seem to have appeared in many of them! ;0)

Thanks again for helping to make our wedding day extra special – and we will be delighted to nominate you for the VOWS award.

Lorraine & Jon


Just an e-mail to say thanks very much for the piper provided for my wedding on the 20th of June. He was very professional and impressed all of my guests.

I would definitely recommend, thanks again

Samantha


Just a short note to say thank you for providing us with a piper for our wedding day on 2nd May. Jim did a brilliant job and we would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to him also. We will be happy to recommend Scotia Pipers in the future.

Thanks again.

Kind regards

Hope you are well? Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. Everyone thought that your piping was just fantastic. I have your Vows form so I'll complete that. I am in the process of doing thank you cards and one will be on its way! I have attached a couple of photos taken of yourself should you ever require them!

All the best.

Many thanks

Samantha & Shaun Pairman


I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you to the piper who came and played at our wedding at Balbirnie House on 3rd April.

Our guests commented on how obliging he was to have his photo taken and of course he sounded great and added to the fantastic memories we have from the day itself.

We would be extremely grateful if you could pass on our thanks.

Kind Regards

Lisa


Just a note to say thankyou for playing for us on our wedding day at Langley castle on easter sunday.

You played the pipes beautifully and professionaly and you looked great in your full outfit which is exactly what we wanted.

A lot of our guests commented on you and you were very popular with the ladies!

Thankyou for the extras you did such as playing outside after the ceremony (we had planned to go upstairs to the lounge but decided at the last minute to make the most of the weather and have drinks outside)

Your attitude was very polite, helpful and professional and you helped make our wedding day special.

If we need a piper again in the future you will be the first person we call!!

thankyou.

Michael and Janet Mcquade


Hi Steve, just to say thanks for being there and playing.  Eveyone was impressed by the music - would recommend you to anyone.

Take care!

Gail


Well what can i say. You and the Harpist that played at our wedding on 27th Dec at Murrayshall Hotel in Perth were amazing. The fact that you both got through all that snow is a credit to you both. Everything we requested was played.

We've been told by lots of our wedding guests they thought you were not just a fantastic piper but also the best turned out piper at a wedding they have seen,to which both Alice and myself would agree 100%.If anyone is thinking about a piper look no further than SCOTIA PIPERS they are great value for money. I would also recommend a harpist who played as we signed the register. They were also a great combination which made a very enjoyable spell for ourguests while we were having our photos taken.

THANKS AGAIN FOR HELPING TO MAKE OUR DAY VERY SPECIAL

David & Alice Wallace


I woulld like to thank you for your amazing piping throughout our wedding day. Firstly "The hills of Argyll" blew me away! It was perfect. It made me cry (good tears though) I wish I had let you play more before I came in.... One of our friends video'd us leaving and I smile everytime I see it as you played us out to Jack Daniels Reel. I have no other words than perfect! Our friends and family have complimented you ever since.

Moving onto the evening - God I well up even thinking about it - I did highland dancing for 11 years, and it's something that is close to my heart. The girl brought a tear to my eye, she was amazing. So if you could pass on many thanks for me I would be grateful. Much fun was had all round with the scottish dancing, and it seemed to be the highlight of the evening.

Kirstie Ferguson (Crawford)


We want to say a HUGE thank you for giving our Uncle a wonderful send off.  Everyone comented on your talent and professionalism, it was without fault.  You have left all of us questioning your super hero status as we have no idea how you managed to play us out of the Church then into the Graveyard.  How you got there before us we still don't know but it was first class service.

The Burke Family


Just a note to say thanks for the piping service at our wedding. The piping was excellent and helped contribute to a wonderful day.

Mark Peterson


I was absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to submit Scotia Pipers for the Vows awards.

We were all so thrilled with the musicians you selected for the wedding on 22nd August.

They were such gifted musicians and made the day so very special.

Their choice of music was absolutely perfect.

I really must commend your company on finding such professional and talented musicians.

Kathy Sang


Just back from honeymoon and thought I would drop you a quick email to say the string quartet were fantastic at our wedding on Sat 14 June at Forbes of Kingennie.  Everyone commented on how great they were, and when I watched the wedding video I was so happy with the job they had done.  They really made our day extra special.

Elaine & Paul


The Piper was absolutely great.  My mother was thrilled by the whole event so, thank you very much for helping to make my mother's birthday such a success.

Veronica Milne


Just a quick email to say thanks for sending such a good piper, not only did everyone enjoy the pipes (big hit with the australians) but he was also a good laugh and couldnt have done anymore to accomodate our needs, especialy since the bride turned up 40mins late!!

Andy Campbell


Hello there, we would all like to thank you very much for sending such a super piper to play at Peter's 50th birthday surprise at Boturich castle on 4th May. The young man was excellent and he told us so much about the history of the bagpipes and played beautifully. Please thank him again on our behalf.

Ann Miller


Just wanted to email you to say thanks for piping at our wedding on Sat 22nd Sept. You were a complete star and everyone commented on how professional you were.

Your piping was brilliant and I would recommend Scotia Pipers to anyone wanting to make their special occasion extra special.

Linzi & Craig


Just to let you know, everything went very well on our wedding day and the piper (David Burnside) was much appreciated by all. Our initial plans were to just play recorded music but we are both very glad that we decided to have the piper instead.

Cath Quinney


Chris and I wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Arnot on the 5th of September. You're a fantastic piper and we couldn't have asked for more on the day. We're wishing now that we'd got in sooner and booked you for our party on the 13th of October as well.

Alison Hunter


We would like to thank you very much for making our wedding day so special with your bagpipes and the Highland dancers. All our guests really enjoyed the performances which were very "tearful" and romantic experiences (especially for the ladies :-)

Karin & Martin Jurasik


Just a quick note to say thank you very much for entertaining our guests on 29th at Arnot.  Everyone thought it was lovely.

Kirsty Wilson


I just wanted to say thank you for the piper that played at our wedding on Saturday. He was absolutely brilliant and really made our wedding day special. We loved it. Thank you!

Helen Hannah


From myself and Nick, thank you so much for our wedding, we have had so many comments about how the piper was absolutely amazing and we agree whole heartedly. Even at the start when there were a few hiccups with other things the piper chatted to me and was amazing! I would recommend anyone to use yourself for their wedding, it was an honour and a pleasure to have you play.

Nick & Kerry


Just a short email to say thank you for organising Jock to play at our wedding. He was absolutely fantastic and we were both really pleased and impressed with him. Our photographer actually commented that Jock was one of the best pipers that he has heard.

Simon and Lesley Thomson


Thanks again for your attendance at the Barleycorn in Hamilton last night.

The bride and groom wanted me to pass on their regards too. I'll be sure to pass on your details in the future.

James


Just wanted to say thank you very much for helping make our wedding day so very special. On personal level you helped make one of my wedding day wishes come true. It was perfect. All of our guests from south of the border were so delighted, and there are many photographs with you included.

Geraldine and Matt Breen


I phoned the hotel last night whilst they were all still partying, and got some of the goss. ! I was told you were a star, that everyone loved you and they drove you mad with photos, Mike said you looked amazing, he was surprised at the detail to your clothing, Kevin said you were great and that the kids loved you, and Mike told me that Kari heard you upstairs and said "Oh, i wish we'd thought of that, i'd love to have a piper..."! In short, you are a darling, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart that through you I was involved in their day in such a special way.

Ali


Just a quick note to say a massive THANK YOU !!!! . The piper you organised and sent to my wife's 40th birthday was superb! The look on my wife's face was priceless and he played flower of Scotland to perfection so much so that he had grown men in tears! Please pass on a BIG BIG THANK YOU to Bill who made the night so memorable, he is a truly excellent piper and his outfit was pristine. I will have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your name to anyone who requires a piper.

Steve Kibble


Please accept my thanks for making the wedding of Kathryn and Craig such a memorable event. Kathryn's face was a picture when we arrived at the registrars to see you standing there waiting for us. It was just the touch needed to make the day perfect. The full highland dress was also much better than some of the pipers I have seen who go for the less formal garb.

Bill Brown


Just to say many thanks for the splendid job carried out by Gary on Saturday.

My Daughter was thrilled and felt extra special on her Wedding Day, having one of her dreams fulfilled!

Gary was great and the guests loved being piped into the Hotel, not to mention the Receptionist who was not only thrilled to have so many people from Scotland staying, but was also reminded of home by the sound of the pipes!

Mhairi nearly exploded with excitement once Gary started playing and couldn't wait to join him for her walk down the aisle to her Bridegroom.

There is something really stirring about the sound of a Piper!

Gloria Odell


Just to say a hearty thank you for arranging the piper for my birthday party on 4th March.

The piper performed extremely well and really 'made my day'.

My guests have all been very complimentary, comments from them included "brilliant"  "magnificent"   "impressive"  and  "excellent".

I am very pleased with the success of my party and it was very much due to the piper.

Tom Milne


I just had to get in touch as soon as, to let you know what a sucess my mums party was,a lot of that sucess was down to you and your pipes,mum was overwhelmed and enjoyed her night so much.It was lovely to have you there, you were so friendly and just slotted in so nicely, I  hope all these sisters of mine did'nt scare you too much! Anyway this is just a big thankyou from all of us,you made the night

Sylvia


Just had to say thank you very much for the wonderful piper on saturday night in dalkeith. we could not have wished for better and everything went very well so thanks again and please tell the young piper all our thanks, he did everyone proud. cant say thanks enough.

Jacqui Binning


I am just writing to thank you for your help in arranging the piper and thank Phil for a wonderful performance at our family wedding last Friday.

Colin, the groom was very suitably surprised and the piper worked wonders fitting in with the bell ringers!

Please pass on my thanks to Phil and tell him what a wonderful job he did.

Valerie Villiers


Just a quick note to say thankyou very much for your services at Kirstan and Koukis wedding on 29th July, 2005.

Everyone was very complimentary about your piping and your involvement in the day and of course, the Canadians and foreign guests were most impressed.

Linda and Eric Osborne


This is a message to thank you for providing a Scottish Piper on the 14th August last. The man was an excellent Piper and very interesting with the talk he gave. The Party was a success and the piper added that little extra to the day, or rather that big extra.

Christine, from North Wales


Mr Fitzgerald piped for us at our wedding on 29 July in Perth.  We would be grateful if you could pass on a big thanks to him as he did a wonderful job for us and made our day even more special.

Andrea & Euan Campbell


I just wanted to let you know how impressed Steve and I were with you when you played at our wedding. All our guests, particularly the Northern Irish ones, really enjoyed your piping and you really added to our special day. Thank you very much, I also appreciated your wee toast in the conservatory.

Gillian McNally


Just a short note of thanks for your brilliant piping on Saturday at Arnot Towers.
 
I'm so glad we booked you to do this as it was a fantastic touch and really helped us to do the whole 'wedding announcement and entrance' stuff with pzazz! 
 
We had a great day and your input went a long way to achieving that for us - it wouldn't have been half as good without you lending that aspect to the proceedings. I wish it had been a rehearsal so we could do it again - this time I would look to see where I was going and not have to be called back from following you blindly when we entered the tower (so shamed).

Tracey


I just thought I would send a quick email to thank you for providing such a great service.

Dave and I thoroughly enjoyed the tunes of the piper and his performance, he sounded exceptional…

Dave and Fiona Hayes


Just wanted to send you a quick note to say the Piper at our wedding on the 18th of June was absolutely fabulous, he was such a lovely man and made our day so very special.

The day wouldn't have been the same without him being there.  Can you please pass on our thanks to him.

Mr & Mrs Newcombe


Just thought I would drop you a quick note, so you can pass our thanks onto Jim for the brillant job that he did that day. All the guests also thought that he did a wonderfull job and looked the part. If you could pass our thanks onto him and thankyou for sending him. We both had a brillant day and everything ran perfectly.

Iain McPhail


We arrived back in Auckland on Sunday morning, having had a 4 day stopover in San Franciso. I just wanted to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to Ruth and Andy's wedding on the 15th January.You really made the occasion even more special, especially as Andy had decided that he wanted highland dress. Your professionalisim did you great credit and I would recommend your services to any Father of the Bride.

Andrew Matheson


Many thanks for making our day.. you were fantastic.
I have a very handsome photo of you  now on its way.
we may never meet again but you will always be remembered.

Dorothy Lang


Just wanted to say how delighted I was with the Piper (unfortunately, I didn't get his name) he was fantastic and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Scotia Pipers in the future.

Tara Murray!


Just a quick email to say how fantastic our piper Roderick was. Such a pleasant young man and he made our day very special. Once again thank you for such an outstanding service and be assured that we will recommend your company to all.

Michelle & David Elliott


Just to let you know how pleased we were with Malcome's performance on Monday, he was on time very well presented and could not do enough for us. The kilted members of the wedding party had nothing but praise for his turnout and performance.

Terry England


Just a quick e-mail to say thank you.  Roderick was great and really added a something extra to the day for us.  He was also very patient with the terrible wet weather too.  I have sent a cheque off in the post today for the invoice I received from you last week.  Sorry for the delay,
 
Pauline Allison 


Just a quickie to say thanks we had a great day Jimmy was superb well turned out, and played some nice tunes. Everyone who attended said he put the final touch to a perfect day you should have seen the smile on me mums face my dad played the drum  in a pipe band so it was quite emotional for her. Please could you pass on our thanks to Jimmy.

Terri & Mick Bowers


Just to say that our piper was the best.  It was a magic wedding and your piper was part of the magic.  He was everything all of us hoped for.

Doreen Barker


Thanks for a cracking rendention on the pipes. It was a massive  suprise to most people and real treat. I know you made a speical  effort and if ever anyone needs a recommendation or a reference feel  free ask them to use me. I hope you enjoyed the football/ mardi gras/  Blackpool - wherever you ended  up.

Stuart & Laura.


It was BRILLIANT  THANK YOU  Dad was overwhelemed with delight as were everyone present. Apparenlty your piper scored well as neibourghs were asking for his tel no as he left.  Again thank you for providing a truly excellent and very professional service.  I will get out the word for you here in tokyo amoung the expats.

Ursula and family.


We have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for providing a piper for our wedding on 7th June.

When I arrived at the church and heard the piper playing it was simply  magical. We had lots of guests from outside of Scotland and they thought it  was wonderful having a piper  to welcome them as did we.

Susan Campbell (nee Downie)


Just to say thanks for helping to make our son's wedding a great occasion. John Turner was a super surprise for all, reduced the bride to tears, and made my day with Flower of Scotland! Not a dry eye in the house, as they say.

When speaking to John, who comes from Carnoustie, I discovered his old pal in the Scots Guards is a relative of mine from my home town of Crieff. Its a small World indeed.

Margaret Hunt.


Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for piping at our wedding in Glenfinnan last Saturday. Your piping was fantastic and speaking to people afterwards, they all said how very impressed they were. You probably had a greater effect than you are used to as everyone at the wedding (bar one) was English and we don't see or hear many pipers down here in Somerset!

I'm sorry that I didn't have a chance to thank you personally as I was wisked away in a car but I did ask my father to have a quick word with you  to pass on my thanks.

I know that you had trouble finding a more local piper and both Angela and I were very grateful that you offered to come such a long way to play for us yourself. I know that you travelled some distance but I didn't realise just how far until I looked at a map! I also run my own small business and I can appreciate the sacrifice that you made last Saturday for the little money that you would have made. Therefore, when I am back in the office on Tuesday, I will be sending you a little something extra to show our appreciation for your excellent service and dedication (at least it will pay your petrol if nothing else).

We are both looking forward to seeing our video of the wedding and to see and hear your piping again as sadly we were so involved with the goings on, that we missed alot of what happened on the day.

Alastair and Angela Terry 


Just to let you know that the Piper,  Scot, was first class and everyone enjoyed him. We had a good night and did Robert Burns proud.  Thank you for organizing it.

Alex Reid.


Here is our wedding website and you are featured in it if you want to have a look. We had a great day and it was made all the more special with you piping in the bride and her brother to Eastwood House. A few guests remarked that they had tears in their eyes as the pipes are such an evocative sound and it got them all emotion. We got it on video as well so we will always remember the songs you played which will bring happy memories back to us in the future. In fact, while on holiday a folk singer at our hotel sang Mari's Wedding and dedicated to us as we were newly married.

Just a quick note to say thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding and reception in Edinburgh on 11th July 2002.  Emily and I had a superb day and having your services as a piper certainly made the event even more special.  Our family, friends (and even our videographer who spoke very highly of you!) were all full of praise.  We would certainly recommend you to anyone looking to add that special flair to their occasion, whether it be a wedding, birthday, Hogmany or Burn's Night Supper.

Iain & Emily Sharp


Just a quick note to say thank you so much for orgonising the Piper for our wedding, I forget his name now, Ian (?). He was absolutely brilliant, did a really great job on the day and our guests loved him. There were loads of hick ups during the day, but I am pleased to say that our Piper wasn't one of them. Could you pass on our thanks to him.

Zoe & Andy Barrie.


Many thanks for the congratulations and for the excellent service provided by Alistair and Scotia Pipers.

Mike Wood

Thanks so much for coming all that way to pipe at our wedding, you were fantastic!  I didn't realize you were going to pipe us into the meal again, that was brilliant. Thanks a million for helping to make our day so special.

We got back from our honeymoon in Ireland yesterday and I just wanted to thank you for a brilliant performance on our wedding last Saturday.  We had a great time and really enjoyed your piping too so a BIG thank you!
