He really transformed the atmosphere of the day; creating a relaxed and romantic ambience. Our friends and family remarked on John’s beautiful performance and professionalism throughout the day. We would highly recommend John – thank you ever so much for helping to make our day so special”.

-Marie Kimber, Royal Wootton Bassett, Swindon, May 2018

“We could not recommend John enough! From our first emails to the actual day, he was so helpful and professional. He made the booking process very easy, and replied to any queries I had quickly. I didn’t even notice him set up on the day, he just got on with everything and made the whole situation very stress-free. We had him play before and during the ceremony and then during our reception drinks. His playing was perfect, and really added to the atmosphere of the day. We only chose two songs for the ceremony (to walk down to and out with) and left the rest up to him. His choices were great! BOOK HIM!!!”

-Cat & Mikey, Westonbirt, Gloucestershire, December 2017

I can’t recommend him enough. He made our day very special.”

-Emma & Paul Brooklyn, South Cerney, Gloucestershire, May 2017

-Nichola & James, Swindon, Wiltshire, August 2016

-Kelci & Danny, Wanborough, Swindon, Wiltshire, April 2016

“John played throughout our wedding ceremony and the wedding breakfast, at Stanton House Hotel in April. He created a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and made our day complete. We would highly recommend John for any occasion!”

-Emma & Tony Fletcher, Swindon, Wiltshire, April 2016

“After meeting John at a local wedding fayre (we heard him before we saw him and it was what we heard that made us walk in his direction) it was the easiest decision to make to ask him to play during our wedding breakfast. His easy going and accommodating nature endeared him to us immediately and his willingness to include some additional requests to play certain pieces made the whole experience very personalised. He made himself very discreet and unobtrusive on the day (we wouldn’t have minded though even if he hadn’t) and created the most beautiful ambience to our wedding breakfast. Our guests lauded their experience as one of the best they’d ever had and that was due in no small part to John and his talent and nature. Without any hesitation whatsoever I would recommend John for any such occasion.”

-Mr & Mrs Daniels, Bibury, Gloucestershire, March 2016

“We just wanted to drop you a little note to say a huge thank you for Friday. We had lots of compliments about your music from guests and we really felt it made the ceremony extra special. You did a superb job. We watched our ceremony video back and loved to hear your rendition of Take My Breath Away, A Thousand Years and the other pieces.”

-Sara & Ben, Tetbury, Gloucestershire, March 2016

“I just wanted to thank you, on behalf of both ours, and Adam’s family, for the brilliant job you did on Friday at Jess & Adam’s wedding reception. I hope you could tell when Adam said thanks during his speech, that everyone really enjoyed your performance. It was a lovely addition to the day and several people who were there have told me the same.”

-Jane Butt, Hilton Hotel, Swindon, March 2015

“John’s playing really helped create a lovely, relaxed mood at our reception. He gauged the tone perfectly with a great balance of jazz and popular music.”

-Kit & Adam, Hartpury, Gloucestershire, May 2015

“Thanks so much for your performance on the day it made the atmosphere! I’d fully recommend your services as a seamless, professional and discreet pianist. You added to the emotion of the event and created a perfect live soundtrack. We can’t thank you enough!”

-Lucy & Jamie, Faringdon, Oxfordshire, May 2015

“As General Manager at Bottelinos Swindon having John play created a real atmosphere for the Gabriella christening. Over 100 people attended in total, all with fantastic feedback on the live pianist. The projectile of the music in the 150 plus seater restaurant was perfect with people able to hear from anywhere and even over the chatter and kitchen. Overall a great live pianist and will be using him many times to come.”
