Pianist at Nicky & Colin’s Wedding at Hampton Court Estate, Herefordshire

9th Aug 2010

On Saturday I travelled down to Leominster in Herefordshire to perform at Nicky and Colin’s wedding at the impressive Hampton Court Estate. Nicky had found me on the internet and as she and Colin were based in London I proposed a chat over Skype where I could also link up my desk in the studio and play through some requests for them live… I discovered that the piano they wanted me to perform on for their drinks reception and arrival of evening guests was actually the venue´s own Blüthner concert grand which had been tuned just days before. Oh joy! As requested, I played instrumentals for the drinks reception and then began the more upbeat evening sets with piano and vocals.

The Blüthner concert grand at Hampton Court

I was the perfect day! Nicky and Colin made a very beautiful couple. Many of her family were originally from Liverpool and and I soon felt I had become a friend of the family.  

The photographer on the day was Susie Mackie who has very kindly forwarded a few images from the day
