What is your most memorable wedding?

My wedding to my lovely wife! Actually, I did play the piano at my wedding - briefly in the band in the evening but after five tunes and getting impatient looks from my newly wedded wife, it was time to resume my role as groom!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Soothing relaxing joyful magical moving

What about your business are you most proud of?

The years spent memorising a huge and varied repertoire of beautiful tunes - with the result that there is no room left in my brain to remember where I put my keys!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Have my beautiful live piano music for your ceremony, drinks reception and/or wedding breakfast! - it adds a sparkle of magic, especially when walking down the aisle and it relaxes your guests filling the air with joy and happiness!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A set of polaroid cameras being handed to the children so they can go round taking funny pictures of the adults!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I send sample setlists, to the couple to give an idea of the how the live piano music works for the ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. In the meantime, the couple can have a good look at my website - seeing the recommendations, hearing demos etc. Once the couple has a date and venue, all they need to do is choose one of my wedding packages listed on the website and then secure the booking with a £50 deposit settled with a PayPal link. After that, I send a simple booking contract for the couple's approval and get to work on any special bespoke arrangements they requested for the wedding.

What makes a romantic first dance?

One involving a waltz or swaying! A song that is meaningful to the couple or one that just sounds beautiful and traditional such as Ashokan Fairwell or When Irish Eyes Are Smiling which I perform when in the OddSox Ceilidh band.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Not a floor filler but a walk down the aisle favourite: 1000 Years (Christina Perry) - it's the one I most often get asked to perform, and it is so beautiful

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Madness!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

The James Bond Theme!
