Wedding Bagpiper

Getting married in less than two weeks and want a piper? Late booking deal

A Scottish wedding isn't complete without a piper to greet the guests on arrival and to bring ceremony to the proceedings. The following is the normal format for having a Piper play at your wedding but can be adapted to suit the occasion.

  1. Piper to play for the arrival of the guests.Bagpiper Bryce McCulloch at Brig O Doon
  2. Pipe for the arrival of the Bride and Bridesmaids.
  3. Pipe Bride into ceremony if required.
  4. Pipe after the ceremony leading the happy married couple outside.
  5. Piper to play during initial photographs.
  6. Pipe for arrival of guests and wedding party to reception venue.
  7. Pipe Bride and Groom and Top Table guests to Dinner.

During the signing of the register I can play a selection of tunes on the Scottish Small Pipes, this instrument is a lot quieter and suited to indoors and wont disturb the procedings.

As an additional extra why not book a wake up call on the morning after the ceremony, if it's good enough for the Queen! Perhaps you would like your evening guests to be greeted by the piper! These and other options are available, why not give me a call.

This price includes my transport cost from South West Scotland and meals where appropriate. Full military style uniform will be worn with feather bonnet unless otherwise stated. During periods of not playing I will be available for photographs and to answer questions on the bagpipes and anything else relevant.

Venues I have played at include: 





Brig O' Doon, Alloway Turnberry Hotel, Turnberry Lochgreen House Hotel, Troon
Lochside Hotel, New Cumnock Glenapp Castle, Ballantrae Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries
Crutherland Hotel, East Kilbride Seamill Hydro, Seamill Gailes Lodge, Irvine
Park Hotel, Kilmarnock Glen Skirlie Castle, Banknock House for an Art Lover, Glasgow
Lennoxlove, Edinburgh Drumtochty Castle, Auchenblae Sweetheart Abbey, Dumfries
Wedderburn Castle, Duns Sherbrooke Hotel, Glasgow Western House, Ayr
Dalmeny Park, Barrhead Cameron House, Loch Lomond Airth Castle, Stirling

It is normal and much requested that the piper be available to pose for photographs with the newly married couple and with guests, a function which I am happy to perform. With the No.1 military style uniform this has become a regular and much sought after opportunity for those wishing special memories of their day. Without doubt this is the way all pipers should be dressed, standing out from the kilted guests in a definite visual role.

Costs for this service vary according to requirements, travelling distance, times and dates. Special rates for midweek (Monday - Thursday) apply.

Pipers Word of Advice. Don't be overcharged for hiring a piper during a Pipe Band championship day, they can't do both, will have no intention of going to the band competition and are only exploiting you or will take the booking and send someone less experienced for a fraction of the fee.

Pipers Word of Advice. Only choose your Piper if he is full time or a close family friend and ensure that they are prepared to confirm there attendance in writing. Too many pipers let people down by being on band duty or taking on a 'better offer'. I know because I deal with numerous people who have been let down within a few weeks or days before the wedding.
