Incredibly friendly, talented and experienced pianist
From the outset, Matt was the friendliest, most helpful person to connect with. Having recently planned and celebrated his own wedding, he was immediately offering support and reassurance in so many areas beyond our expectation! Matt is so incredibly friendly, positive, and flexible, even helping us out with a last minute talk on Zoom on a Sunday evening when we got into a deadline panic.
Then there's Matt's talent - the love that he has for his craft is huge, and the way that he understands music and the piano is astonishing. Matt offered to learn a custom setlist of classical piano interpretations of our song choices, which was the most incredible thing. Just a couple months before the wedding, we asked him how much notice he would need from us to send him the full list of songs we'd like, and whether we'd left it too late. His response was to shrug and say "if a tune can be hummed, then it can be played on the piano - there's only so many chords"! I wish I could have that level of confidence and knowledge about anything in my life 😂 we sent him our (pretty mammoth) playlist, and he said he'd do what he could to work on them and get them perfect - and he really truly did.
With Matt playing throughout our welcome, our ceremony, our drinks reception and our wedding breakfast, there was such a great amount of time for us to enjoy him soundtracking our day, and we would have loved to be able to just sit and listen to more of him!! Our guests, from grandparents to 3 year olds, all absolutely loved the magic that Matt created for us.
There's been no end to the comments from everyone about how much they enjoyed Matt's music. From the moment guests began arriving, he was playing and creating a brilliant atmosphere. And not only was his performance itself fantastic, but his willingness to learn our custom playlist meant that our guests could guess and recognise piano renditions of songs referencing memories, TV shows, films and comedy - it was truly a highlight of our day!
Thank you Matt, for *everything* you did for us in shaping our day, from learning a playlist of 60+ of our weird song choices, to recommending new music artists based on our tastes, and even by bringing along a microphone and PA for us to use for our speeches. We had such a joyful day, and you helped to build it for us. We're so grateful, thank you!
A professional, kind and imaginative musician
Fantastic Wedding Pianist
Incredibly talented and the loveliest guy!
Don't look anywhere else for your live music!
Matt was polite, professional and so down to earth from the moment we first started communicating. The video call as part of the planning process was a great way to 'meet' Matt and discuss 'us' and what we were after to make our ceremony truly unique.
Matt, it was a pleasure having you perform during our ceremony, thank you for making it so special for us. Nothing was too much to ask of Matt who even helped with the errand of chasing down my maid of honour for my bouquet for our professional photos. Would definitely recommend Matt to anybody considering live music during their wedding day. We loved you as did our guests! ❤️

Cannot recommend Matt enough!
It was so lovely to hear most of the tables during our wedding breakfast, guessing the songs! Also, the feedback received from our guests was amazing - they were all saying how lovely Matt is! Thank you so much Matt, we can’t recommend you enough!
