    Wedding

  • 📍

    Bartle Hall, Preston

Jack’s beautiful playing was the perfect addition to our day, and from our first meeting we knew that our wedding music was in the hands of a professional (quite literally!). Jack is a special, talented musician whose bespoke arrangements of both traditional and contemporary pieces had our guests in awe.

My entrance to the church began with the sound of Jack playing the piano, and my bridesmaids immediately turned to me and began to cry. His playing heightened emotions and set the tone throughout the day. Whilst we worked our way through masses of photos, Jack kept our guests entertained at our champagne reception. Later, upon conducting our receiving line, we received numerous comments about how the atmosphere had been perfect and how Jack’s playing was out of this world – even by some of the most unlikely guests! Our best man, in particular claimed how he could sit and listen to Jack play all day!

No review could ever do the justice of Jack’s talent – this is simply something you must experience for yourself. Jack, thank you so much for providing the perfect finishing touch to our special day. We couldn’t be more grateful Xx

We were very lucky to have Jack play the piano at our wedding. He has a great talent and we wanted him to play as much as possible.

He played before the church service, during the signing of the register, as we walked in and out and at the drinks reception... he must have played for hours!

We met with Jack prior to our wedding to discuss what we were looking for. He played beautifully our specific requests at the church and used his fantastic repertoire of songs during the reception which he linked to our own personal musical likes, and to our day perfectly!

Jack was professional, well presented, approachable, friendly and was happy to engage and take requests from our guests! We are truly grateful to have had him be a part of our special day. Thanks so much!

Jack was professional from start to finish. He consulted with us before our wedding day to find out what types of songs we would like on the playlist and played a wide variety of easily-recognisable songs on the day.

Our guests loved listening to Jack and watching him play during our drinks reception. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone!

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day, Jack!

I have been privileged to listen to Jack playing the piano for many years and can honestly say that he is nothing short of fabulous! He has pure talent and an emotion for the music that you can hear in his playing. I would recommend him to anyone for a special occasion. He’s both flawless and versatile!

Jack provided the music for our wedding and we could not have been happier.

We provided a selection of pieces that we wanted to be played throughout the day and he created a beautiful playlist - intricately and seamlessly arranged - that matched the theme and feel of the day perfectly.

His performance throughout the day was of the highest quality and we received considerable feedback from our many guests who greatly enjoyed the addition of his playing. Though we knew he was good, he greatly exceeded even our expectations!

He is professional, courteous and highly talented and we would not hesitate to both use him again and to recommend him to anybody looking to add a very special, unique touch to any event.
