If you looking for a professional pianist for your wedding or special occasion such as a birthdays, drinks receptions, parties etc in Huddersfield, HalifaxWest Yorkshire and across the UK, then I would be delighted to help!



I specialise in performing at weddings and have been doing so for over twenty five years. I can play piano for all, or any part of your wedding, including the ceremony itself. The playlist is always discussed with you before hand, and I can of course play whatever music you wish to have for the ceremony itself. 

I have a huge variety of music genres available as well as a dedicated PA and digital piano. Should you prefer to choose your own music then I also offer a customised set list. You can even hand pick every piece/song and the order you'd like them to be played if you so wish. Equally, if you indicate the sort of music you'd like, I can take the hassle out of deciding and sort the playlist out for you. From Bach to Beethoven, Beatles to Ed Sheeran, Daft Punk to Adele any style or songs are possible for your special wedding day.


Grand Piano

If you'd like to have the sophistication of a grand piano at your wedding or special event I can supply a white baby grand piano shell with the white digital piano inside to add a real touch of class. Please contact me to discuss your requirements and for prices for my professional pianist service.



As well as weddings I can also offer my pianist service for parties, birthdays, garden parties, barbecues etc. In fact, any event! Please get in touch to discuss your requirements!

Besides my solo pianist service, I can also provide a trio band with drums and brass or sax for your wedding or special occasion.

I also provide piano lessons, drumming lessons and music lessons in the Huddersfield, Halifax and Kirklees area of West Yorkshire, so if you fancy trying something new then drop me a mail!



How Much Will a Pianist Cost?

The cost for my professional pianist services depends on a couple of factors including the location of your wedding or special occasion, together with how long you would like me to play for. As a guide my pianist service starts from £240, to include a stage piano, full PA to suit the venue and a discussion on the styles of music you wish me to play. You can of course customise the options, right down to hand selecting every song/ piece of music if you wish. If you have a special piece or song you wish to hear it's very easy to include this for you too.

If you are looking for a three piece band for your wedding or special occasion that includes drums, bass, piano and brass or sax then I can provide a service from just £550.

Ian was great and played all our favorite songs. We wanted something a little classy and right from the start that is what we got. No hesitation in recommending Ian for playing piano at a wedding.
