We used David for our wedding after finding his website, and he was brilliant. David had a great repertoire which we were allowed to customize, and even make suggestions/requests for particular songs that were special to us. I requested quite an unusual song from a dance music background as a surprise for my husband and specifically asked it to be turned into a slower classical piano version, and I did wonder if I had asked too much and if it was even possible! But the song was played beautifully, just as I had imagined and it went down brilliantly with the guests too who recognised the tune! His piano music really added an extra dimension to that part of our day and made it extra special. Sadie and Paul, Ilkley

Thank you for making our day so special, the piano music was just what we hoped for and it was particularly special during the ceremony. Gemma and Kileo, Leeds

Dave was a complete superstar and breezed through a fantastic array of classic numbers that added a real touch of magic to our evening. He entertained everyone brilliantly and even seemed to be enjoying himself - despite much raucous singing along and terrible dancing! Esther and Tamar, Lancaster

Dave is an amazingly versatile pianist whose playing is really at one with the piano.  He can be the life and soul of the party, or subtly give a sense of atmosphere to an occasion.  He played for a couple of hours during our reception and brought a unique touch of magic to our wedding. Richard and Marion, Yorkshire

A fantastic memory from our wedding. Kate and Steven, Darlington
