Discover five reasons why you should have a piano player for your wedding

You learnt the piano when you were younger and loved to play. Even though you no longer have the time to sit at the piano that often, piano music holds a special place in your heart and connects you to memories of a happy childhood.

The piece of music that you want played as you walk down the aisle is written for the piano, or features the piano, so having a piano player perform it live for your wedding is the best way to bring your vision to life.

A loved one who is no longer with you played the piano, and you have special memories of sitting next to them on the piano stool and listening to them play. Having a live piano player for your wedding is a beautiful way to honour their memory and include them as part of the day. 

You love live music but are mindful of your wedding budget and want to utilise it in the most effective way. There is a larger cost connected with hiring a group of musicians to play at your wedding. Because a piano provides both the melody and the harmony all on one instrument, and requires only hiring one musician, booking a live pianist is a savvy way of managing your budget and still having a full sound.

There is a grand piano at your venue and you want to take full advantage of it! A grand piano is symbolic with elegance and sophistication, and this fits the vibe of your wedding day perfectly. Just make sure that you read this blog post which gives you a list of questions to ask your venue if you are wanting to make use of their beautiful piano. (And don’t forget that if your venue doesn’t have a grand piano, we can provide one for you! Find out more here.)

    In conclusion, if you have a piano player at your wedding it can truly elevate the atmosphere and create a magical experience for you and your guests. Whether piano music is connected to special memories and loved one, or you simply want to appreciate the elegance and sophistication it brings, a live pianist can add a meaningful touch to your wedding day.
