James was so lovely, I met him at an open event at the venue last summer. I asked him to play a song very close to my heart and I sobbed.

James made our ceremony the warming, loving atmospheric beauty we wanted. All of our guests loved james and commented on the beautiful music he chose to sing for us. We’d love to have james again for other events we host.

Lizzie, August 2023 Bride

We met James at our wedding venue, at Middletons, York during a wedding fayre. We heard his music and assumed it was a track playing through the speakers. We were so delighted to find that this was James playing live with his piano in the corner with a big smile on his face! His talent is incredible, and you can tell he absolutely loves what he does. Thank you for creating the most beautiful atmosphere for our small, intimate evening. It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Mr & Mrs Covey- Rudding Park

Wow!!! We can’t even put fully into words how truly incredible James is. He had the whole room up on their feet dancing before the starters were even finished right through to desserts being served. All our wedding guests commented on how incredible James was and how it was the best thing wedding breakfast they have ever had! James is so incredibly talented and professional. Our only regret is that we did not have you for longer! We can’t wait for our wedding video so that we can relive it all. Thank you so much for making our day so special you played such a huge part in our day, it would not of been the same with out you! I wish we could do it all again!

What a beautiful performer!

When booking our wedding, I knew the one thing I wanted to invest in was the music and I will be forever grateful I was privileged enough to book James for our wedding breakfast. What an incredible performer! James is a stand out moment to every single guest from our wedding- his beautiful piano, warm personality and lovely rapport with the guests, add his smile and my guests were asking for him to be their wedding favour! He really was the best part of my wedding breakfast. A real luxury to a beautiful day! James, thank you so much. I will never forget the feeling I felt listening to your videos for the first time and then being lucky enough to hear you at my very own wedding. I can’t believe I managed to secure a date with you, a feeling I’ll always remember! I can’t say thank you enough or recommend you enough to every single person I come across! You were a real dream come true and now I’ll spend the future hoping to book you again, or at least make a trip to Browns and hear you play! My one regret is that I didn’t book your services for longer, you were simply outstanding!

Absolutely fantastic!

James played at our wedding at the end of September, We had the full day package - ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
Really cannot recommend James enough, he was absolutely brilliant! Before our wedding day James helped us to choose which songs we wanted, he was so helpful - singing different songs for us. We were so pleased with the final choice.
Having James play really made our day perfect, he was so professional but still huge fun. He had our guests singing along and waving their phones in the air 😃
Massive thank you James, you were amazing!

Brilliant Wedding day with James's help

James played his platinum package from our wedding ceremony, reception drinks, wedding breakfast - 6 hour session including piano/ singing/ accompany our friend singing / free style napkin swinging. James was brilliant, he had to deal with Groomzillas like us with lots of wants.. needs songs way out of range and last minute asks, what was more brilliant was the subtle cue's with appropriate songs he chimed in with, just brilliant. our wedding party couldn't scream his praises so much.

Mrs Ruth Fielding

We hired James to play and sing during our Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast.
He was an absolute delight! Very easy to work with and very professional.
He didn't have one of our songs in his song list and was happy to learn it specially for us for which we are very grateful.
Our guests were transfixed by his performance and still talk about how brilliant he was almost 2 months after our wedding.
Our 3 yr old granddaughter is now his biggest fan, she stood next to the piano, watching and listening, James was not fazed and was so lovely to her.
James was the highlight of our wedding.
We would definitely recommend him.

Amazing vocals! A must book!

Our only regret was we didn't book James to perform more! His vocals, song choice and atmosphere he created were fantastic! So many guests since our big day have commemt on what a fab voice James has. I would definitely consider booking James again if we were to need a singer and will 100% recommend him to anyone who asks.

Superb Singer & Pianist

James performed at our wedding on Saturday, all of our guests loved his performance. Prior to the wedding day we had arranged with James what kind of music we wanted and he more than delivered! James performed for 3 hours in total during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast and unbelievably did not take a break! We had arranged what first song James would perform once all of the guests had come out of the ceremony, when we came out he was also playing our exit music Canon by Pachebel that the harpist was playing in the ceremony room, a real special extra touch that we wasn't expecting. Having James perform really added to our day making it very special indeed! We cannot speak highly enough of him and would definitely recommend,

Thank you James

A must have for your wedding

James was amazing and we would highly recommend him. He did an absolute wonderful job with our chosen songs, especially as some were a little unusual. But they sounded wonderful and made the day all the more special and everyone of our guests complimented and asked after who the piano player (James) was.
