If you’re looking for a pianist for your wedding or event with optional grand piano then you’ve come to the right place.
As a contemporary pianist, I play piano versions of well-known songs old and new – something for guests of all ages. Since releasing my albums All of Me and Forever Love (available on Spotify and Apple Music) I’m often asked to perform piano music for wedding ceremonies – perhaps a couple’s favourite or special song as bridal entrance music, exit music, or during the signing of the register.
Background piano music adds a real touch of class to your drinks reception, whether inside or outside. Or you may want the unique ambience of a tinkling piano during your wedding breakfast.
If your wedding venue doesn’t have a suitable piano, I can provide an electronic piano which perfectly recreates the sound of a grand piano – either a standard keyboard-style piano at no extra charge, or you can upgrade to a white grand piano shell or my beautiful and unique high-gloss black mini grand piano.
For several years I was the resident pianist at a five-star hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant, and I’m now a recommended piano player for weddings at a number of prestigious locations – including wedding venues such as Littleton Park House, stately homes such as Loseley Park and Highcliffe Castle, hotels such as Hartsfield Manor, barn wedding venues such as Bury Court, Rivervale Barn, and Farbridge, country houses such as Minterne House and Cowdray House, and the world-famous Wentworth Golf Club.
If you’d like me to play for your wedding or event, or for friendly advice about music for your day, please contact me at any time by email or telephone.

"Simon was a true professional from the first moment I reached out. And as for his performance at the ceremony itself, it was absolutely incredible and super emotional - which is the exactly the vibe I was going for. I couldn't recommend Simon enough. Easy to communicate with and very talented. He was one of my favourite parts about our day."
"A huge thank you to Simon. He played beautifully throughout our wedding reception, it was flawless and a perfect mix of music. All our guests commented on how good it was. The perfect addition to our wedding."
"Simon played at our wedding at Highcliffe Castle. Not only did he entertain our guests but was so helpful and accommodating with my other half's crazy requests! It was a pleasure to have him part of our day."
"Simon was amazing. He really did an outstanding job and there was not a dry eye in the room when I made my entrance - they way my entrance song was played with such elegance will forever remain my most special memory of walking down the aisle."
"Simon was an absolute pleasure and a great entertainer at our wedding. Throughout our day, we received non stop compliments on his performance and he even took part in one of our games (especially dedicated around his performance) and he did not fail to amuse, our guests loved him!"
"Simon was a true professional from first contact. Easy to work with and most importantly made our special day even more magical. We couldn't recommend him enough - especially his mini grand piano, it's beautiful."
"Simon played at our wedding at the end of June this year and played his mini grand piano during our wedding breakfast. We were so glad we chose Simon to play, he was amazing and is very talented! We had so many comments from guests on how good he was. We would definitely recommend Simon for all weddings!"
"I can't recommend Simon highly enough. He played at our wedding ceremony, creating a lovely atmosphere before, during and after the service. Having a live pianist was vastly superior to playing recorded music for such a special occasion. Throughout the process Simon was very helpful and communicative, even agreeing to play an additional song for us during the ceremony so we could include a group singalong of 'All You Need is Love'. A fantastic service and experience all round."
