Frequently asked questions
How do I book you?
Please email or use the contact form to check availability of your date. If I am free I will ask you to fill in some details and a £75 non-returnable deposit will secure your date in my diary. The final balance is due one week before your wedding if paying by cheque or bank transfer, or you can pay by cash on the day. Upon booking I will send you my ‘terms and conditions’ for more information about deposits and cancellations.
What time will you arrive?
I will always arrive at the venue at least an hour beforehand. This will give my time to set up my equipment and sound check, as well as liaise with the venue staff. If it is a venue I've not played at before I will contact the wedding co-ordinator or plan a visit beforehand to make sure I am fully prepared on the day.
Are you able to bring your own instrument?
If there is no piano at the venue, I am happy to supply my own electric piano, amplifier and stand. It is a Roland RD-64 with two moveable speakers, which produce a top-quality sound just like a real piano! I may require some help from a member of the event staff to move my piano into and around the venue.
How will you dress?
I will be dressed smartly, in black, unless other colours are requested to fit in with a theme.
Are you insured?
Yes I have public liability insurance and my equipment is PAT tested frequently. Documents are available upon request.
Can guests request songs on the day?
Yes, if they are part of my repertoire I am happy to take requests. I always bring a copy of my repertoire on the day. I'm happy to send you a copy of my playlist so you can see the range of songs I play. I love learning new songs that aren't already on my list so do let me know if you have something in mind!
Do you only play at weddings?
No, I am available for all sorts of events: Weddings, civil ceremonies, afternoon tea, garden parties, drinks receptions, dinner parties, Christmas events, birthdays and corporate functions – any event requiring personalised background music - contact me for a tailored quote.
