Weddings

Make your wedding more memorable with the pomp of the Scottish pipes, the Gaelic soulfulness of the Irish pipes, or the beauty of a Celtic ensemble. The most often asked question is "At what point in the ceremony is it usual or traditional to play the pipes?" The answer is that there it no standard way of utilizing the pipes; I have played pre-service music outside or inside the chapel before the ceremony, for the seating of the mothers, for one or more of the processionals (groomsmen, bridesmaids, maid of honor, ring-bearer, bride), for the candlelighting ceremony, for incidental music during the wedding, for communion, for the recessional, for post-service music inside or outside the chapel, or for any combination of the above.
