This page is for anyone looking for the most beautiful instrument in the world to play at your wedding ceremony, whether religious, humanist, spiritualist or other.
Pictured above is a wonderful set of pipes made by Mr. Colgan sometime in the 1820s.
I am based in Tramore, Co. Waterford and am available for weddings throughout Ireland and beyond.

You can adjust the programme to suit yourselves. If there is a piece of music not on the list that you would like me to try, do suggest it. If it suits the instruments I’m happy to try it.
Points during the wedding ceremony – select your own choice of music or I can also make suggestions
Before the Ceremony – General selection of airs on the pipes
Processional – something specific like Tabhar dom do Lámh (Give me your hand) or Gabriel’s Oboe
Individual Candles – short piece, often the link passage from the famous Fox Chase
Unity Candle – Short piece for the duration of the lighting ceremony
