Wedding Pianist & Singer
As a wedding musician, most of Simon’s engagements are as a wedding pianist and singer. He provides music for 80-100 weddings and civil partnerships a year.
He can play and sing current wedding favourites such as All Of Me, Thinking Out Loud, 1000 Years, How Long Will I Love You, Budapest plus your own favourite requests. He offers a huge repertoire and can even provide music for themed weddings with a Frozen, Star Wars, Sex & The City, Great Gatsby or Twilight theme.
He typically covers daytime arrival as guests are seated, ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. He also covers evening entertainment either solo or with his band.
He can perform on the venue’s own piano or usually on his trademark portable 6ft WHITE BABY GRAND PIANO. A white upright piano and RED BABY GRAND are now available too.
Simon offers a large playlist of songs in Spanish and other languages from his 17 years based abroad. Have a listen to Simon live.Regularly recommended to couples looking to hire a pianist vocalist, he is also happy to perform piano instrumentals without vocals such as Einaudi pieces or tracks from The Little Mermaid and Twilight soundtracks.
Simon typically plays 15 mins of instrumental pieces as guests are seated. He then plays the processional for the bride e.g. A Thousand Years, How Long Will I Love You? After 2 or 3 pieces for the signing of the register, it’s time for the newlyweds to walk out to something upbeat like Signed Sealed Delivered!
He provides music for the drinks reception which lasts 1.5-2 hours. He takes requests from guests and plays a mix of background music on piano & vocals or just piano.
He plays music throughout the wedding breakfast up to speeches, so again 1.5-2 hours. Songs are always played at the right volume usually building up to a bit of a singalong once the main course is out of the way, if not before…
“Simon, absolutely first class! Your performance at my daughter’s wedding in Windermere was truly amazing and you were a joy to deal with. We will be in touch…”
“Your singing and playing were fantastic and everyone had a great night. Our Tom Waits first dance was perfect so we wanted to send you a special thank you.”
