Craig Wedding Pianist

Looking for a Live Musician
Craig is a full-time professional musician, specialising in the piano. After spending four years studying at the Paul McCartney fame school, I left with my degree and went straight into performing at weddings and events. Since then I have literally played at thousands of events and have been fortunate enough to be asked to tour annually with The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Three Degrees, Tavares, Freda Payne and The platters to name but a few. If you have seen any of these acts at the O2 arena or any of the other large stadiums in the country, then you have already met me (although from a distance).

Professional wedding pianists can create an emotional connection with their audience through their music. They have the skill and experience to play appropriate music for different moments during the ceremony, like when walking down the aisle or signing the register. Moreover, they know how to choose songs that fit perfectly with each other, so that there is no awkward silence between them.

The right choice of a wedding pianist can make all the difference in creating an unforgettable experience for you and your guests on your special day. Experienced pianists know how to tailor their performance according to your tastes and preferences while ensuring they stay true to classical music traditions and modern trends in weddings.

Why Hire a Pianist for a Corporate Event

If you’re planning a corporate event, you may be wondering if it’s worth hiring a pianist. The answer is yes! A pianist can add something special to your event, and there are several reasons why.

First, a pianist can provide a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere. If you want your event to have a touch of class, then hiring a pianist is a great way to achieve that. They can also help create a more relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, which is perfect for networking or mingling events.

Second, a pianist can be a great icebreaker and conversation starter. If you hire someone interactive and engaging, they can help get your guests to talk and interact with each other, which can be especially beneficial if you have guests who don’t know each other very well.

What Makes a Good Wedding Pianist?

A good wedding pianist can make or break the atmosphere of a wedding. They provide the perfect soundtrack to your special day and can add a unique touch to your ceremony or reception. But what exactly makes a great wedding pianist? Here are some key qualities to consider when searching for the perfect wedding pianist.

First, look for a pianist with experience. A professional wedding pianist should have a wide repertoire of music and be able to create a custom set list for your wedding. They should also be able to play a variety of genres, ranging from classical to modern. A good pianist should also be able to take requests and adjust their playing to fit the mood of the event.

Second, a wedding pianist should be reliable and punctual. A piano player who doesn’t show up or is late can ruin the entire wedding day. Make sure the pianist has a good track record of showing up on time and being prepared.

Third, a good wedding pianist should be flexible and adaptable. They should be able to adjust to the changing dynamics of a wedding and be able to improvise if needed. They should also be able to take direction from the bride and groom and be able to adjust their playing accordingly.

Finally, a wedding pianist should be personable and engaging. They should be able to interact with guests and be able to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. A great wedding pianist should be able to make guests feel welcome and make them want to stay and listen.

Finding the perfect wedding pianist can be a challenging task, but if you look for the above qualities you will be sure to find the perfect wedding pianist for your special day.


Very highly recommended. Craig was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. From us first making contact Craig listened to what we wanted for our wedding, immediately understood and accommodated our style and wishes. On the wedding day itself it became obvious that Craig is a very talented performer, playing the piano, singing and then doing a DJ set until the end of the evening and, just to make sure of full marks, he is very friendly and polite and very reasonably priced. I’ve already recommended him to friends and work colleagues!

Craig was an amazing performer and was brilliant with the children as they wanted to play along with him at times.
Craig had to learn to play and sing the song for me to walk down the aisle and it was the most beautiful version. We appreciate all the effort.
Thank you.
