Last update: May 2024

Hi, I'm Chris, an Award-winning Pianist from Warrington serving weddings in Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire, and all across the North West of England.

I'm different from other Pianists as I will take limitless requests to make sure that it is your story being told on your special day. It is my mission to show your personality and vision for the day through the soundtrack that we create together.

All bookings also include my Grand Piano shell to add a touch of class to the occasion.

From laid-back easy listening, to jazz, rock anthems, and pop hits, my repertoire spans a broad mix of popular genres.

I'm the winner of the Hitched Wedding Awards for the past three years running, and have also been featured in the national press and on BBC2's 'Ultimate Wedding Planner'.

Services Offered

I primarily play ceremonies, drinks receptions, and wedding breakfasts, but can help create the perfect package with you as I work with other professional musicians.

Whether you envisage solo piano in the background at your drinks reception, or a dynamic duo for the wedding breakfast, I can create a bespoke package that reflects your wishes.

I pride myself on being able to tailor my music to every couple, and am happy to send demos of your favourite songs, mashups of several songs, whatever you wish! Ask for a demo with your enquiry and I’ll send it over :)

From classical to rock, your wedding day can be filled with your own unique soundtrack.

Get in touch for more information and to see how I can make your day extra-special. Send me a message, or book a call via my calendly link below:

Out Of This World - the perfect pianist

Chris was absolute perfection from the initial booking process to meeting this true gentleman on our big day. He was super efficient in responding to any and all correspondence and could not have been any more accommodating of our requests. Chris added that touch of class. elegance & sophistication to our wedding day, by playing a beautiful selection of modern and timeless songs. He, without a shadow of a doubt, was one of the most exceptional, conscientious and efficient vendors we hired who made our day truly magical and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Don't hesitate - secure your booking with Chris today - he was worth every penny of his fee and is a genuinely lovely man to deal with and have as a presence on your big day - Thank-you Chris - . XX

Wow! Absolutely amazing talent

Chris was amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble including learning our multiple song request to changing up the order of song during the ceremony due to my speed walk down the aisle!
So many of our guests couldn’t believe Chris’s talent and everyone was blown away. We didn’t want anything too soppy and wanted to keep everything upbeat which Chris did perfectly, we even had our wedding breakfast singalong!
Chris was amazing and really created a great atmosphere
Thank you so much for making our day so special

Absolutely amazing!

Chris was absolutely phenomenal at our wedding. The piano music as i walked up and down the aisle was beautiful and he made the drinks reception so special. The final touch was the live band for the evening. They were absolutely brilliant and had everyone on the dance floor all night. All of our guests have commented on how wonderful the music was. The music made our wedding a day/night to remember! Thank you so much.

Simply Amazing

I booked Chris to play during our ceremony at Sandhole Oak Barn on 19th April 2024. From the early stages of the booking process, to the contact in the lead up to the wedding & during the ceremony itself, Chris was simply amazing and nothing was too much trouble. I asked Chris to play a song he hadn’t played before & within 24 hours he had learnt it & sent me a demo capturing my vision perfectly. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone thinking of having a pianist at their wedding.

Amazing music

Chris is amazing, dealt with every query I had, very responsive and did everything to perfection, the baby grand sounded amazing, it made my entrance music that extra special and also meant that whilst I was running behind Chris was able to delay my entrance point of the music and timed it perfectly!
Couldn't recommend enough!

Incredible!

Chris provided the perfect soundtrack to our day and made my vision for walking down the aisle a reality!

Nothing was too much for Chris. From providing recordings so myself and my bridesmaids could practice walking down the aisle ahead of time, to learning new songs just for us, to hauling his piano outside after the ceremony so our guests could enjoy his music alongside a glass of champagne on the patio.

Chris instantly understood our vibe and picked the perfect selection of songs to accompany our ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. We truly could not recommend him more!

What a day!

The 10th of June 2023 will go down in my personal history of the best day of my life. I married my best friend. Man city won the champions league and I got to celebrate all this with my closest and dearest. Chris kicked my day off with the best and most professional music I have ever heard. A wedding party full of indie kids and true manunians. Chris tailored the music for us to this playing manc classics such as the courteeners and stone roses. My wife had a very specific song she wanted for the ile song with great personal and emotional meaning to it. Chris played this song through his PA system but also created his own piece of music to go along with it. It was just magical. Not a dry eye in sight. He stuck around and carried on banging out beautiful music whilst our photos were being done. Chris mate, unfortunately I only intend to get married the once but if there is any other events I want piano at you'll be the 1st and only person I'll speak too. Thank you so much for kicking the best day of my life off the way you did.

The best day ever!

We got married in February and we literally couldn't recommend Chris highly enough. I have personally known Chris for many years (and in many settings and musical experiences!) and it's been amazing to see play out, just how special he makes each and every experience. And they're all different in many ways which is testament to Chris and his ability to personalise every aspect of your day. As soon as we started planning our wedding, I absolutely knew 100% Chris was the man to deliver the big hair and rock n roll vibe that we wanted which would make this the best day ever. So, with the stage set and the air guitars and Bon Jovi wigs ordered, the final countdown was on. Chris took care of assembling some ol' touring friends to set up an acoustic guitar duo for our reception and then full band experience for the evening. Chris really reassured us right the way through the planning stages with timings, best fits, logistics and liaising with the venue which was a huge relief and something we didn't have to worry about once. The venue also loved the professionalism and just how easy they made everything with setting up, changes and packing away at the end of the night. The hardest thing was collating a host of songs to mix into the sets and Chris's DJ skills which he did, and there were some great surprises in there too. I don't think I actually left the dance floor!? It was phenomenal and something that we'll never forget. Honestly, any ideas that you have or want to explore to fit into a theme or location or just because you want to dance the night away, Chris is fantastic.

Perfect cocktail hour music!

Chris provided the perfect soundtrack to our cocktail hour as well as the ceremony. The ceremony venue was tight on numbers so he recorded songs to be played at very short notice! Truly a perfect addition to any wedding, he played every song I asked for with skill and I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Just perfect!

Chris was absolutely fantastic! From start to finish, he created the most perfect atmosphere throughout our drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Best mix of songs, requests taken and the most beautifully piano playing I have ever heard. Made our day so special and Chris' piano playing is something every guest commented on. We even ended our meal with a little sing song. I couldn't recommend Chris anymore, perfect addition to our day x

Absolutely fantastic! Made the whole day come together perfectly!

1000% recommend Chris! We got married yesterday and throughout the whole day Chris entertained not only our guests but also the staff at our venue! All of our guests were in absolute awe and were mentioning to myself and my husband how great he was! We cannot thank Chris enough as he helped make our whole day so unforgettable! Thank you from Mr and Mrs Cook! ❤️

Amazing talented pianist

We can’t thank Chris enough for everything he did for us in our special day. He was responsive and flexible from the start, he offered suggestions but whilst always putting what we want first. We loved the idea of live piano but for the songs walking up and down the aisle, the lyrics were really important to us too. Chris never questioned this request and went out of his way to supply the songs through his system, and he played beautifully alongside them. We’ve had so many of our guests saying how lovely it was to have a bit of life and something special during and after the ceremony. We can’t recommend Chris enough!! Thank you!
