A Memorable and Joyous Event
The sound of Bagpipes, as guests arrive at your wedding, is a clear statement that an exciting and major event is about to take place. Listed below are only suggestions or guidelines to help you decide your needs. We have been doing weddings for over 45 years. With that many years of experience, we can provide insight in making your wedding successful. Even if you do not hire us, we would be happy to consult with you on any part of your wedding plans.
We always have two sets of Bagpipes. The Great Highland Bagpipes (GHP) and Fireside Bagpipes. The GHP are the Bagpipes most people are familiar with. These are great for "open space" areas, whereas the Fireside Bagpipers were developed specifically for "close space" areas.
