Good morning Robyn, thank you for your follow-up.

Yes, Stuart was excellent. His playing of the pipes, the adoption of our plan with regards to his involvement on the day, his attire and his convivial nature and mixing with everyone made the day for my wife and I.

Thank you so very much for contracting Stuart for our daughter’s wedding day. His presence was perfect.

Regards
Ian Wilson

Hi Robyn
We couldn’t have wished for a better piper for our wedding than Stuart Wood. He was thoroughly professional and a very good musician. He has a very pleasant and friendly manner.
Thank you for arranging for Stuart to play for us.
Kind regards

Hi Kellie

Stu was more than satisfactory, he was fantastic. We had a great day and are
very pleased with the Stus performance, he was very easy to work with and
would do so if the need for a piper arose again.

My wife Jessica and I were married in a very remote wee kirk out at Pigeon Bay at the end of January 2014. Although my wife is from Christchurch, I am Scottish and as many of my family and friends were attending we thought it would be a nice touch to have a piper. Stuart was just incredible. Despite the remote location there was no problem at all with him finding us and he went well beyond our expectations, turning up very promptly to ensure the best positioning for both effect and sound (considering the prevailing breeze). It meant a huge amount to my wife and I and Stuart more than surpassed our expectations both with the quality of his piping and the length of time he played for. He was very friendly indeed yet hugely professional and as soon as he started playing it felt a little more like home. We didn’t actually mention it to Stuart, but my best man is also professional piper from Scotland and he was as impressed with Stuart as the rest of us. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending him wholeheartedly. Thank you very much indeed Stuart.
