Booking Ben for our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made. From the get go, he was so professional and had... such a warm personality. We had a lovely zoom call to chat ideas and we instantly knew we had to book him when he played Harry Potter us 😏 He played beautifully during our wedding breakfast, and everyone loved singing along to Edelweiss in memory of my grandma. We just wish he could play to us every day!! Thankyou so much Ben, couldn't recommend you enough!! Loretta and Jo xxxread more
Ben was fantastic and played beautifully at our October wedding! Initially we hadn't considered a pianist for the day,... and having done so a fair way through the planning process, we were worried it wouldn't come together. Luckily, Ben was not only available on our date, but was approachable, flexible and friendly! He had such a great repertoire and arranged a call with us to discuss our music choices to help us merge musicals, 90s bangers and rat pack swing classics and toe tappers all seamlessly into our day.Ben was super cool, working with the flow of the day and the venue whilst delivering an outstanding performance. His playing totally elevated the whole experience and we had loads of complements from guest and venue staff alike.Ben is super talented, friendly and flexible and we would highly recommend him to any bride and grooms to be! Thank you so much Ben!read more

Benjamin performed at our wedding back in November 2021. All I can say is WOW! Really impressive and such an amazing... talent. Made the ceremony extra special and memorable. I could not imagine the day without the beautiful sound of the piano. Also, worked with one of my wife’s bridesmaids to do a duet, which was extra special. Would highly recommend for any more

From our first call with Ben, we knew we had to book him to be a part of our special day.During the consultation... stages, he took the time to get to know us & the music that meant the most to us. He was happy to play anything we requested and then once we decided, he then made suggestions of music to complement our choices. Nothing was too much trouble.Ben played during both our ceremony and wedding breakfast, creating a perfect atmosphere with a mixture of sentimental and lively music. All of guests commented on how amazing he was!We feel so lucky to have had Ben play at our wedding. You can tell he is truly passionate about what he does, and goes above and beyond to make your day magical.Thank you Ben!Bobby and Sam 🦊 xread more

Ben played at our wedding ceremony on the 24th July 2021. Having heard him play at our wedding venue open day it was a... very easy decision to book.He was great to work with, has a huge variety of songs to choose from and his performances really are beautiful.We had a particular song that was significant to us, and Ben kindly agreed to work with one of our close friends who is a singer to put together a performance for the bridal entrance. It really is such a special memory from our day.We can’t recommend Ben highly enough! He went out of his way to make the day feel special and we received lots of positive feedback from our guests. Thanks again!read more

We are so delighted we found Benjamin to be our wedding pianist in May 2021. We really enjoyed meeting him over a video... call before the big day, during which he was happy to play tasters of a wide selection of songs & helped us to decide on our ceremony music. He is incredibly talented & has a massive repertoire to suit our very different tastes! He was very accommodating & completely put us at ease in all communications. Our wedding guests loved him. Highly recommend!read more
