Fantastic Addition to Our Wedding Day!

We organised to have a piper at our special day to pipe myself and the guests into and out of the chapel and to pipe us as newly weds into the wedding reception as well as well to perform a traditional Scottish toast - it was absolutely fantastic! We so enjoyed having David there, it really added a special touch to our day and was a hit with our guests. Couldn鈥檛 recommend David highly enough, booking and organising the logistics of piping was seamless and it was magical on the day! David was also very happy to be included in photos which was great!

Bagpiper Online- Exceptional

Bagpiper Online have been providing pipers for our weddings for a number of years and could not be more responsive, professional and most importantly quality.
At short notice, with complex timings/arrangements/song requests, no query is too much of an ask and always met with a smile and desire to put the client and guests first.
Can't praise them enough.

The best service everytime!

I've been working with Bagpiper Online team since 2009 and they aren't only the most reliable, but they hire the most talented pipers, drummers and Scottish entertainers. I only shop with Bagpiper Online for all my wedding-planning clients from around the world and the team always comes dressed in first-class Highland gear and happily play tunes of couple's request. The most popular requests include piper+drummer duo or multiple pipers and drummer to highlight the special occasion. Highly recommended every time!

Absolutely fantastic!

David was brilliant! Such a talented piper. I had picked a song to pipe in the top table, and it was a wee bit slow, David was able to recommend a much better option about 5 minutes before he piped us in. Highly recommend!
