Testimonials

I am extremely grateful to all my clients who have taken the time to give me feedback on my service.

A wonderful surprise birthday present for my 60th. Couldn’t have been entertained with more beautiful music, in more splendid surroundings, by a more charming young man. The whole experience was emotional, heartwarming & never to be forgotten. Thank you Rich, from Mij & friends at Cauldhame House.

My husband I were married July 9, 2016 at Cammo Estate in Edinburgh. We are also from abroad and after much research chose Rich to be our piper. He was absolutely amazing and it was like a fairy tale. Thank you so much! It would not have been the same without you.

Laura

Absolutely loved Rich piping at our wedding. He played my favourite song as I walked down the aisle. We 100% recommend Rich to play at your wedding. Thank you so much!

Laura

 

Rich is possibly the nicest guy I’ve ever met. We had a tiny wedding party and he felt like one of the family. I only asked for a couple of songs be he piped my wife down the aisle (a very long stretch of beach) and stuck around after to play some more. I couldn’t have asked for a better piper. I’m hoping for some more celebrations so I can get him round again!

Jay

Rich, thank you. Thanks for absolutely everything. From booking right up til the day, always contactable, always reply, giving advice & being generally friendly! By the time the wedding came I felt like I already knew you! Haha but you made our day. You & ash playing on the Dhol was amazing & everyone had an absolute ball. Thanks for everything Rich! & as you already know I got someone else to book you for their wedding too & I will continue to recommend you. Amazing piper, lovely guy.

Jennifer

Thank you so much for helping make Mark and Jen’s wedding so special when you gladly played alongside the grooms cousin on the dhol. I would highly recommend you to anyone needing a piper for any occasion as you were fantastic. X

Mary

Rich, you were awesome! From our first e-mails to, Skype conversation, to hanging out with us after the ceremony. You were a key factor in making a great day, a perfect day. You can add Texas as a place where you have friends because that’s what you are, much more than a hired musician, you are our friend.

Aaron

Dear Rich Gordon, thank you so much for piping at our wedding, it was a truly perfect performance which made our big day incredibly memorable. So many of our friends and families commented on how much they loved the piping and how friendly you are. Thanks so much. Here is a video that my brother recorded with your piping to the fireworks! All the best joanne and olly.

Joanne

Rich, we can’t begin to say what amazing person you are. Your personality and showmanship when it comes to playing is over the top. Every single person of the wedding commented on how good you are at what you do. We can certainly say that the wedding wouldn’t have been what it was without you. Thank you again from the bottom of hearts for playing at our wedding.
It didn’t hurt either that the weather turned out the way it was. Hill of Tarvit is beautiful place. And all that more stunning when my lovely wife was being piped in by yourself.

David

Thank you so much for piping for us on our big day. You were extremely professional and friendly throughout the whole day and numerous guests also commented on this.

Thank you again and anyone who is considering booking Rich to play at an event, please do so. It’ll be the best decision you’ll ever make!!

Rich was brilliant from start to finish at my daughters wedding in July. Don’t think about it just hire Rich and you won’t be disappointed.

Mr and Mrs Stuart

Richie played at an event we held at Aldourie Castle… not only did he play the pipes but he also did the ode to the haggis which was amazing. Everything about the way he dresses, plays and conducts himself is excellent. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an enthusiastic true Scot playing because he enjoys it….he has the usual repertoire along with other music that he can do… a true professional.

Alison

What a beautiful piper! Rich played at our wedding in August. Everyone commented on his amazing playing. Hearing the pipes play whilst I was getting ready and the last few minutes chaos surrounded me was not only magical but so calming! Rich is a truly genuinely lovely guy, thank you so much Rich!

Rich played our wedding at Barony Castle on 25th July and he was brilliant. He even made a wee toast before our meal which was superb.
A highlight for a couple of our guests was hearing him pipe the Star Wars theme tune.
I would highly recommend Rich “Mr Piper Man”.

Gordon

Rich was a true professional from start to finish at my wedding last week. He communicated really well on the lead up to it putting our minds at ease. On the day he dressed to a high standard and played magnificently! We cannot thank Rich enough for adding to our special day and would definitely recommend him

Michelle

Rich played on the 11th July 2015 at our Camusdarach beach wedding and we can not recommend him enough. He made the long journey to play wonderfully for my guests arriving, for me coming down the isle, during register signing, as we left the beach. He was even willing to stand out in the field and play in the rain while photos were being taken. He even anounced us as the new married couple when i asked him after the maitre de forgot and piped us in for dinner, and then finally after the kids knocked over his quaich he s
till managed a toast. Rich was a true professional, a billiant player and mostly a lovely guy. Thank you so much x

Lynne

Rich piped all my guests on arrival to our wedding on Saturday 27th June and then piped me down the aisle it was absolutely amazing. He was great such a nice guy. Certainly added something special to our big day!!!

What a super guy Rich was from start to finish. He was so pleasant and involved with the planning of our music from the beginning, offering his advice and suggestions. He was punctual, extremely polite and friendly to all our guests and happily posed for photos. He really made everyone feel at ease and also gave a warm hearted toast to us before dinner, which we thought was a lovely touch. We really can’t thankyou enough for all your effort on our special day. Many thanks again Rich and i will certainly be recommending you in future to anyone looking for a piper! Best regards x

Rachel

Rich played at our wedding on Sat 30th May 2015 at The Edinburgh Marriott Hotel, he was absolutely fantastic. All my guests said he played non-stop for them arriving. I eventually met Rich while getting our photo’s taken, he is a very likeable guy & when he piped Top Table, then my hubby & I in, then toasted us, it made our day even more special. A very warm & pleasant chap, we were all pleased with his performance. Thank you so much Rich for being part of our Special day. Luv Nicola-Lee & Stephen Ospedale xx

Rich also gave advise and ideas on the lead up to wedding highly recommend and if you are lucky enough to have Rich play at your wedding he won’t let you down.

We hired Rich for our wedding on the 30th Jan 2015. His talent as a Piper is amazing. What a modest polite man. His knowledge of music for weddings is fantastic. My wife and I, urge anyone/couple looking for a highly talented piper who can play to a high standard, to hire this gifted young man. On a person note. Rich, thank you my friend for making our day so special. Donna and I, wish you all the very best of luck for the future. Stevie & Donna.

I would highly recommend Rich Gordon if you are looking for a Piper. He was very friendly and extremely communicative in the run-up to my daughter’s wedding.

He added something very special to my daughter’s big day and I would definitely love to book him again in the future

Rich played at my sisters wedding at the weekend. It was my surprise gift for the bride and groom and they were absolutely delighted, as were the guests. He had made recommendations for the day and helped me with my choice of music and did exactly as I had asked him to do. He was friendly to everyone and extremely professional and more than happy to pose for photos. Thank you for making the day even more special. I would highly recommend Rich for any occasion. Thanks again.

Angela

Rich played at our wedding last month. He was friendly and very professional. Highly recommended.

Rovina

Thanks Rich for playing at my wedding, your music was fab and really helped create a great atmosphere. We had so many lovely comments from guests on what a friendly guy you were. Thank you for being part of our special day.

Lorna

Rich was the piper at our wedding celebrations. He performed with grace and style from start to finish, his pre-event communication,commitment, and timing were all great. and he looked the part too. Unusually we had a Handfasting Ceremony at the centre of our occasion – it was a first for all of us including Rich but his contribution was excellent, and his enthusiasm genuine, contributing strongly to the atmosphere and success of the event. We’d recommend his services highly.Thanks Rich – success to you in all your musical endeavours

David

Rich performed at my daughters wedding on 11th October 2014.. Can I just say that he was not only an ultimate professional through out, but his timing and choice of songs were amazing and very apt for the occasion… Rich is now not only the piper we hired for the wedding, but we now see him as a friend who joined us to celebrate the wedding of my daughter and now son-in-law and I would have no reservation in recommending his services x Thank you so much Rich xx

Kay

Where to start…. Rich played for my wedding on the 9th of august. He was amazing. He remembered that I love highland cathedral and started playing it the minute the car door opened. He was polite and made me feel totally at ease the whole day. He even posed for pictures and mingled with my guests. He is such a nice person. Thank you so much Rich. Having you there meant the world to me. X

Stacey

Rich played at our wedding on 20th September 2014 and both Andrea and I were over the moon with the service that Rich provided. Rich is an excellent Piper, but not only that he’s very well organised. He sent us our booking form well in advance to make sure we both knew exactly what we wanted him to do on the day, and on the day he was there within plenty of time. He knows exactly what to do and just got on with what he does best. Rich is very professional and this really comes through in the way that he operates his business. It really was ‘the icing on the cake’ and added something extra special for our wedding day. Thanks Rich, we will certainly be recommending you to our network.

Chris

 

A wealth of tune knowledge! Booked Rich for my wedding and i dont think he played the same tune twice!! Well dressed, excellent manners and just a lovely chap! 5 star!

Nick

An eloquent gentleman with style and professionalism he brought the wedding atmosphere from the excellent to the indelible. None of the halting or squawking or fits and starts which oft characterise the flow of pipers without a firm grip and good flow. Great pieces, properly played. The only problem is that there aren’t 5 clones of Mr Gordon for the formation of an ensemble.
