Shaun Wedding PhotoSmuts-Wedding-PhotoBagpipers have been entertaining guests at weddings, banquets and parties for centuries. By hiring a piper to play for your wedding or event, you will be carrying on a cultural tradition that has been prevalent throughout the world.

According to Scottish tradition, if a bagpiper greets the bride first, she is assured of a long and successful marriage. However, you don’t have to be of Scottish or Irish heritage to have a piper at your wedding. Bagpipes provide an electrifying presence and will leave an indelible mark in all of your guest’s memories.
