Wedding - Liscombe House - Leighton Buzzard - August 2019

Pipe Major  Waller  came and played the Pipes at my daughter's wedding  on Saturday, 31st of August. I had asked him to play a medley of suitable tunes ti the 280  guests, and then to Pipe the bride and groom in to the wedding dinner. He did exactly what I had asked, much to the delight of the Scottish bridegroom, all he Scottish guests as well as the English , and me. He added a great deal to the party and, if I had more daughters, I would without hesitation, have asked him to play  at their weddings too.

 

I cannot recommend him more highly,

Scattering of Ashes - Runnymeade - November 2018

“I arranged for Graham Waller to perform at a family gathering that I had organised for the scattering of my parents ashes.

Not only was Graham’s performance professional, but his natural warmth and friendly personality helped to make the ceremony go smoothly.

A very proficient and professional musician.  I highly recommend his services.”

Kind regards

Graham now that the dust has settled and everyone is returning to normality. My wife and I would sincerely like to thank you for helping to my daughter Sharon's and Gareth's day. Absolutely brilliant. Everything was perfect. But you made the day plus the choir. It still is the talk of the village. Thank you.  Frank and Queenie Brand.

Birthday Surprise - Lightwater - May 2017

Hi graham,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for coming on Saturday . Mum will never forget the sight and sound of you walking down her drive playing the pipes,  she could talk of little else all weekend.

You really made her birthday and it was a pleasure meeting you.

Kind regards

The Wedding of Sarah and Anthony  14/01/17 - Audleys Wood Hotel

From the very first email via your website to your performance on our daughter's wedding day you were the consummate professional. We booked you as a surprise for our daughter Sarah and the look on her face when she saw you striding down the aisle towards her to pipe her out of the ceremony will be a moment that both her Dad and I will always treasure. 

Your communication was excellent during the lead up to the wedding, keeping in touch and discussing the music to be played etc. You knew that the pipes were a surprise and on the day kept out of sight until THAT moment which was a surprise for all the guests too. 

You looked and sounded amazing. It absolutely made the wedding! Piping the new Mr and Mrs Clarke out of the ceremony, playing during the drinks reception and also piping them into the Wedding Breakfast to the top table (accompanied by the clapping and cheering from the guests)  and your special toast to the Groom added an extra dimension and made it all the more memorable, not only for the Scots in the family but also for the other guests too. 

We remain eternally grateful for the incredible memories you left us with on our daughter's special day.

Mr Hugh and Mrs Lorraine Terris.

WEDDING IN TURVEY, BEDFORDSHIRE, 3rd SEPTEMBER 2016

From the moment we booked Graham to play at our daughters wedding we knew we had found the right man. He was the complete professional,prompt in replying to e-mails and very helpful in planning the day. The initial idea was for him to pipe the wedding party and guests to the reception along a country lane from the church. When we came out of the church to our dismay we found glorious English summer rain but his amazing playing at the lychgate persuaded every single person to follow the bridal party in procession on foot to the marquee.

He then played beautifully during the reception before finally piping the bride and groom into dinner. He is extremely courteous and kind. Our guests loved his fantastic contribution to the day.

Thank you Graham!

Renewal of Vows - Ansty Hall, Coventry August 2016

Graham from the first contact I had with him was an obvious professional who new his stuff and helped us pick the right theme for the day.

He instilled confidence with his explanation of his piping service which he is very expert at.

He contacted me at regular intervals running up to our wedding vows renewal and turned up on time at the venue and did what it said on the tin.

Any kind of celebration needs trustworthy, punctual and talented performers which Graham is.

His fees are reasonable and he goes the extra mile to please.

I would not hesitate to recommend Graham for your piping needs.

Wedding - Pineridge Golf Club - Camberley 27th August 2016

Dearest graham 

We cannot thank you enough for your contribution in our wedding, and it truly is a contribution. Any couple getting married will know they want the best and we definitely got that with you.

From our first meeting through to the day itself you was a genuinely lovely person who never gave us any stresses, your standards of playing were by far outstanding and truly beautiful. We could not recommend you highly enough as a professional, reliable piper at competitive market rates.

Regards and best wishes

Donald and Jodie Macdonald

Wedding - Ramster Hall, Surrey - July 2015

Dear Graham,

Having just returned from our honeymoon in Scotland, Phil and I would just like to thank you again for being such a joy to deal with and for the beautiful piping you produced for our wedding day on Sat 25th July @ Ramster Hall.

We had the most memorable and happy wedding day and nothing could have gone any better.  So many guests have commented on what an interesting guy you are, how the bagpipes made our day incredibly moving and how happy you made everyone feel.

From our point of view, and despite all of the high points, your piping made our day, it was just so much fun.  Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!!

Oh and by the way we are loving being married!!!

With very best wishes to you for your future and piping.

Marj & Phil :-)

Wedding - Caledonian Club - London - February 2015

“From the moment we had our first meeting, we knew that our wedding was in safe hands with Graham.  He is personable, flexible, professional and clearly a very talented piper.  He was even able to meet our requirements to have a piper and a drummer.  On the Wedding Day, they both arrived promptly and were extremely discrete in their preparation, as we decided to keep their presence a secret until the Wedding recessional.  The combination of the pipes and the drums was sensational – all of our guests remarked on how good they both were and what a fantastic effect it created.  Graham and his son are not only talented musicians, but also approachable and friendly – accommodating the many “photo-call” requests from our guests.  In short, they made our Wedding Day”.

Take Care

Wedding - Caswell House - September 2014

Graham,

I'm sorry that I didn't introduce myself at my daughter Kirsty's wedding on 26th September at Caswell House.

I would like to thank you for playing so beautifully. We have had some lovely comments from friends and family about your playing. The Scottish contingent were very complimentary and some of them are hard to please. Particularly my 91 year old aunt!

I think there were a few tears shed when Kirsty walked into Highland Cathedral. It is such a beautiful tune and she looked pretty good too.

It was nice to have a bit of Scotland at Kirsty's wedding. We never did get around to the Scottish dancing.

Thank you again for the part you played in making Kirsty and Chris's day so special.

Regards

Barbara McCubbin

Wedding Anniversary - Hartley Witney - August 2014

Hello Graham

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for playing for us on our 35th Wedding Anniversary at the end of August. You made us all very happy and my wife is still talking about it. The setting was perfect and we were obviously very lucky with the weather.  All in all it was the perfect day for us. Once again many thanks.

Very best regards

Jonathan Wood

Wedding - Hurlingham Club - June 2014

Dear Graham, 

We would all like to say a big thank you to you for your wonderful and stirring playing at the Hurlingham Club on Saturday afternoon. It was great to hear so many lovely Scottish tunes and the piping in of the bridal couple was a very special moment.

Thank you so much for helping to make this such a memorable day for us all. 

All the best,

Marsali Walker

Funeral - Hatfield - March 2014

I just wanted to thank you very much for providing such a wonderful finale at my father's funeral. Hearing Scotland the Brave, and seeing you dressed in your full ceremonial dress, as the coffin was carried out of the church was incredibly moving, and much appreciated by the Scottish relatives present.

Thank you for suggesting to play a Retreat as the hearse left the churchyard - this was a very fitting end for my Scottish father, and he would have loved it.

I would be delighted to recommend your skill, sense of timing and professionalism at any time. Brilliant!

Kind regards,

Helen

Funeral - West Herts - January 2014

Hi Graham,

Just wanted to say thank you again for performing at my dad's funeral service yesterday.

We had kept it a secret from everyone attending, so when they saw you approach it was truly special.

My dad had only been watching a film on TV just weeks prior of the battle of flodden field, so hearing flowers of the forest was so fitting.

Having dad come in to Amazing grace was epic, and thank you for sorting that out with the crematorium.

Everyone was blown away listening to you play the pipes. Especially when you played Hector the Hero and stood as the lone piper, a sight and sound that will stay with us all forever.

A shame the weather wasn't better, I hope you didn't get too soaked.

On behalf of myself, my mum and the all those that attended, thank you for making yesterday so special and memorable.

Regards

Andy Hay - BA Hons
