Testimonials

We invited Matthew to play at our wedding in Cumbria in October, and he was perfect. He was very flexible and it was easy to arrange for him to play to fit around our plans. He sent us a huge repertoire of music to choose from, and we had total confidence in him despite never having met him. He didn’t disappoint on the day, with outstanding professionalism and clear talent, easily taking requests. He came as a pianist and left as a friend! Highly recommend if you are looking for a young, contemporary pianist who will seamlessly blend in and help create your perfect wedding. Thanks Matthew!

Matthew performed at an intimate private party this weekend and was very accommodating to my slightly more unusual set list requests and provided an excellent and friendly service, taking requests from guests and taking time to answer questions and chat. He was also punctual and well dressed for the occasion. Would definitely recommend him.

Mat played at our wedding in Coniston and was absolutely fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. He was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and very accommodating and professional. Our guests absolutely loved the music he played. We would highly recommend Mat if you are looking for a pianist who will go the extra mile to make sure you and your guests are happy and kept entertained! Thank you Mat.

“Matthew played at our wedding prior, during and after the service as well as throughout the meal. He entertained everyone from the very start with songs ranging from Blink 182 to Katy Perry to Disney songs. It was an amazing afternoon and his music played a huge part in this! Matthew is very talented playing every song we d chosen for the wedding service: Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, The Smiths and many others, he then took requests from our guests! So many of our friends and family commented on Matthews fantastic piano playing and rightly so! Thankyou Matthew for sharing your music at our wedding, we would definitely recommend you to other bride and grooms! Rachel and Tom.”

“I booked Mat to play at our wedding at Ripley Castle in December as a surprise for my wife. Aside from being a truly superb pianist with a huge, unrivalled repertoire (covering everything from the Rat Pack to Take That, Green Day to Jeff Buckley and anything else you can think of), Mat took the time to learn from scratch a number of difficult songs previously unknown to him, including bands not typically played by a wedding pianist like Goo Goo Dolls, Hoobastank, Matchbox20 and Guns ‘N’ Roses…

Mat played everything perfectly, adapted the playlist to the mood, looked immaculate and was always personable and accommodating to requests made by our guests – I would not hesitate to book Mat again, regardless of the occasion – in fact I am looking for an excuse to hire him again as I write! I think every guest commented on how good he was, and what an amazing and refreshing change it was to be able to play literally anything anybody wanted (without any sheet music), and to have such a diverse playlist but still be totally in keeping with the occasion, ambience and setting.

In short, if you need a superb pianist, Mat is the only person to call – I cannot recommend him highly enough, and would like to thank him again for playing such a big role in making our big day so unforgettable.”

“Dear Matthew,

Thankyou for playing the piano for our wedding ceremony. Everyone commented about how good you were and we were very pleased with the song choices.

You did very well considering Father Ian didn’t follow the order of service!

Have a lovely Christmas”

“Playing everything we specifically requested and much more, he genuinely made our day even more special than we ever could have imagined. I lost count of the complimentary comments I received on his behalf! Along with the classical pieces, people were enamored with the amazing transpositions of Metallica, Nirvana, and The Beach Boys amongst others that we had requested.

Matthew, thank you so much for being an important part of the best day of our lives.”

Steve & Maria

“Thanks Matt and thanks again for playing for us at the wedding, lots of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music.

We’re sorry the plan changed due to the weather being nice and everyone having a drink outside from 8pm, thank you for continuing to play for the guests arriving through the function room, much appreciated.

If you need us to do a review or anything for your website just let us know.”

“My mum had a lovely 80th birthday thank you.  I found Matthew’s website through a google search and was a bit nervous about booking a pianist without a personal recommendation, but I read some testimonials and spoke to him and felt reassured that he would do a great job and he did!

He provided a play list of songs, accommodated a few requests and even tolerated a brief sing song. All the guests left saying that they had had a great time.  I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to make their party a bit more special.”
