Last update: May 2024

Based in Great Malvern, Worcestershire, Robbie is passionate about delighting couples and their guests with beautiful piano music.

He has also recently won an award in the Hitched Wedding Awards making him one of the most recommended professionals by newlyweds on Hitched.co.uk.

Robbie has over twenty-five years of experience playing the piano at various occasions whether that is at weddings or other functions, and can fit in with whatever plans you have and whichever venue you choose. He has a vast repertoire of songs at his fingertips from modern pop and blues, to songs from the shows, classical and jazz standards. He can also learn new songs quickly if you have any requests. It is not possible to list all the songs and pieces he can play as it would be far too long, however the short list of artists below gives you a flavour of the range of styles that he likes to play:

  • Ludovico Einaudi, Yiruma, Chopin, Elgar, Elton John, Phil Collins, Bruno Mars, Eric Clapton, Jason Mraz, Take That, Robbie Williams, Lewis Capaldi, Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, The Beatles, Adele, Billy Joel, Carly Simon, Bob Dylan, The Temptations, Queen, Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Simon and Garfunkel, Randy Newman, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Johnny Cash, Oasis, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Van Morrison, Meat Loaf, Richard Clayderman….and many, many more.

You can get in touch with Robbie directly to book his services, request further information and even to request sample recording of your favourite song to help you decide if a live pianist is what you want.


Before the day

Ahead of your big day you can discuss all your requirements covering the style of music you would like, the length of time you would like him to play, the timings of the day, set-up, logistics and location. You can also get in touch with him any time in the run-up if you have any new ideas or if there have been any changes to timings. He is also very happy to send bespoke sample recordings before you commit to booking him.


On the day itself

Robbie will arrive around an hour before he is due to start playing to ensure he has plenty of time to set-up before your guests arrive. The first time you will see him is when he is already set-up and playing the piano. Robbie doesn’t clock-watch at weddings - even the best laid plans can go awry, and he won’t stop playing if timings run over!

Wonderfully friendly and professional pianist, highly recommended!

Robbie was a last minute booking after we decided that we wanted live music for our ceremony and drinks reception. He was responsive to any emails and was open to suggestions of music outside his repertoire. Luckily he knew any songs outside the ones on his list but he will learn any that were required! On the day he turned up and was so friendly, putting us both at ease. He blended in seamlessly to the day and we had so many positive comments on how much he added to the atmosphere of the day.

Thank you so much Robbie, we are so happy we booked you!

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

Robbie performed at our wedding in December 2023. One of the best decisions we made! Nothing was too much trouble for Robbie and he was happy to learn our chosen song by ear. He added a personal touch to our day and our guests loved him, even taking a few requests on the day! Thank you! - Katie & Josh

An exceptional pianist!

Robbie played at our wedding reception earlier this month and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He is SO talented and it was a real highlight of the day - loads of our guests said how much they enjoyed it. From the outset, Robbie was incredibly responsive and keen to ensure he played the music we wanted to hear. He even went on 'standby' to play at our service without any notice when we discovered there was a possibility the organist wouldn't be able to make it. A lovely chap, truly gifted at what he does and deserves to do really well. Thank you so much Robbie!

Wonderful musicianship, friendly, accommodating and willing

Robbie is a charming person. In the months preceding our wedding he spoke with us on the phone so we could all talk over what would be good and what would be possible.
On the actual day his timekeeping was immaculate; his playing helped build just the atmosphere we wanted during our meal; he included a last minute request from a guest in his repertoire and his whole performance was brilliant.

Very talented, highly recommend!

We booked Robbie for our wedding ceremony in December 2022. He is very pleasant, professional, and incredibly talented. There was nothing that was no trouble, we expressed the songs we would like and was happy to accommodate. Robbie was even happy to learn songs that he was not familiar with. He is very easy to contact and responds quickly, he communicated with us regularly and sent samples for us to listen to. He really made our ceremony everything we had wanted; I always dreamed of having live piano at my wedding and he made it reality. We like to thank Robbie was being apart of our special day, we feel very lucky to have come in contact with him and would highly recommend.

Robbie played the Piano at the Hencote Winery and Restaurant Venue, for us on our Wedding Day 14th April 2024.
Robbie is professional, very talented and friendly, we would highly recommend if anyone is looking for a Pianist for their forthcoming Wedding.
He played throughout our Reception, and during our Ceremony, friendly to our Guests and did requests. Absolutely fantastic and made our day one to remember with his friendly personality and beautiful music.

The best pianist you could ask for!

Robbie played at our wedding in September 2023 and we have completely lost track of how many people have told us how amazing he was! Firstly, he was great to work with and learnt a few random songs we requested, nothing was too much trouble. On the day he worked with our coordinating team to position himself in the right place depending on where our guests were, which was tricky as some was outside, and he allowed us to use his kit for the speeches which was an added bonus! Lastly, and most importantly, the music was absolutely perfect, each song was played beautifully, the song choices were great and it really added to our day. We can whole heartedly recommend Robbie for weddings or other events in the future.

Sensational!

Robbie played at our wedding on 1st July. He was so helpful, communicative and accommodating from the very beginning. He learned all of our requests and sent us clips ahead of time!

Robbie played all pieces for our ceremony perfectly, including impromptu performances of You'll Never Walk Alone and a very funny rendition of Never Gonna Give You Up to break the tension while we had some technical issues with our unity candle.

Robbie then played for 2 hours while our guests grazed and played games outdoors. He played a fantastic range of contemporary pieces and even took requests. Our guests were all commenting on how wonderful he was.

Friendly, professional, organized and super accommodating, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!

Brilliant! Friendly, professional and so talented.

Robbie played for a joint birthday party for my dad (90) and myself (60). His music was the perfect backdrop to the party; we can't rate him highly enough. Thank you, Robbie!

Beautiful Musician!

Robbie agreed to play for me at my wedding. Very glad I chose Robbie - he is very kind, accommodating and professional. He made it to the venue early, took initiative to speak to wedding staff, set up all his equipment outside, and even started to play early for quests when this was not required of him. He is so talented, playing a range of genres, engaging positively with the crowd, and taking recommendations upon my behalf. I appreciated the effort he put in, in preparation for our wedding. He practiced up until the wedding and provided me with videos asking me for feedback. All in all, it was a very pleasant and smooth experience with Robbie and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to be stress free throughout their wedding experience as well :)

This pianist went above and beyond to make my parents-in-law's joint 80th party go with a swing

Robbie was hired for a family 80th birthday party. Robbie kindly played the family baby-grand piano at the request of the “birthday girl”. The piano had been made by her father who worked for the Challen company and so Robbie playing really was the “icing on the cake” at the party. Robbie played beautifully and accommodated a few requests for the hosts in addition to his far-ranging repertoire. Robbie also was asked to collaborate on a few songs with myself on acoustic guitar and vocals and my uncle on percussion. Robbie arrived early for the event allowing time to have a run-through of these new songs. This is where Robbie really showed his artistry, with very little rehearsal he was able to embellish the songs with some beautiful melodies and “off-the-cuff” ad-libs on piano. It truly was a joy to play with such a talented and accomplished musician.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Robbie for whatever event you have planned. He was professional throughout, flexible, communicative and accommodating and helped make it a birthday to remember. Heartfelt thanks Robbie.

Highly recommend Robbie

Would really recommend Robbie to anyone looking for a pianist for their wedding. He was able to step in for us at short notice and accommodate all of our requests, for our traditional church ceremony & more contemporary pieces for our reception. Very professional & friendly and we really enjoyed having him perform for our special day!
