He has a very extensive repertoire and can provide a list if required. He is more than happy to learn a specific tune if I do not know it already and provided the tune is within the musical range of the Bagpipes.


Mark We would both like to thank you very much for being part of our special day. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing you play the bagpipes at our Wedding. What a wonderful way to finish off the Scottish theme to our Wedding. We were so surprised when you had made the special effort to come back to our reception to hear you as we arrived back at the house and then to have our photograph with you. Thank you once again for everything! Simon & Jane Jane Marshall, Wedding, Clayworth

Just wanted to write and thank you for helping Chris and I create such a memorable day. The guests loved being greeted by you, you really helped to bring an authentic Scottish element to our wedding. I really appreciated your flexible and honest approach and your recommendation of the Highland Cathedral for the entrance was superb. What can I say I loved the outfit full number one is amazing. Thank you so much. We would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone. Laura Thomson- Wedding Warwick Castle

"Couldn't have asked for more from our piper. He met with us on two occasions before the wedding to make sure that we got all the songs we wanted and that they were played at the right time. On the day he was fantastic. It just made the whole day that bit more special. He even went the extra mile by waiting for us to arrive at the reception (which we weren't expecting) and piped us in which was an amazing experience. I can't recommend Mark enough, he's an awesome piper and a really friendly and helpful person, Thanks Mark". Craig and Laura Walker- Wedding Great Oakley
