Richard will bring his Yamaha P 115 Stage Piano which is a lovely sounding portable stage piano with an authentic grand piano tone. The piano is the perfect instrument to set the right ambience for your drinks reception and wedding breakfast.

He can play a variety of music from classical to jazz and pop and rock to musical theatre depending on your musical taste. Richard would also be happy to play the hymns during your ceremony if required.

Richard studied music at the Royal Conservatoire in Birmingham and graduated with a B.A. (Hons) in Music with violin as his first study and piano as his second study.

With over twenty years experience as a wedding musician, Richard is familiar with how important the ambience, feel and natural flow of the day is. He understands how vital it is to making your day a successful and memorable occasion. Live music is an important part of this.

Perhaps you want the elegance of Pachelbels ‘Canon in D’ as you gracefully walk down the aisle or your favourite Ed Sheeran song while you sign the register and the grand ‘La Rejouissance’ by Handel as you proudly make your way out after the wedding ceremony. Whatever it is that you want, Richard will make every effort to arrange it and rehearse it ready for your big day.

Richard’s experience, built up over twenty years of performing live, ensures that he provides a friendly, professional and bespoke service. His repertoire is both wide and varied and crosses the whole musical spectrum. If your favourite piece of music or song isn't in Richard's repertoire  then he will write a special personal arrangement just for you and your guests at no extra cost.

Richard will help guide you through the music so that you can create a wonderful atmosphere for your special occasion.

Wonderful Feedback

‘Richard played the Intermezzo from Mascani's Cavalleria Rusticana at our wedding with such passion and skill. It was a highlight of the service, and of the whole day!’


This is one of the most popular piano pieces for the bride to walk down the isle to.
