Martyn can also bring his stage piano and PA, arriving in plenty of time before the event to set things up properly in an area of your choice.

Although he has an extensive repertoire, he will play your choice of music for the entrance, signing and exit, as well as learn any other requests at no extra charge. Martyn can play literally any style or song on the piano, from Vivaldi to Van Morrison!

During the wedding ceremony, Martyn’s playing will create a romantic ambiance from the instant your wedding guests start taking their seats until you exit down the aisle as newlyweds.

For the drinks reception, Martyn can play more of his ‘up-beat’ repertoire, complimenting the more lively atmosphere that comes as guests start having a celebratory drink or two. This is usually the time you and the photographer can start taking some professional shots at various areas in and around the wedding venue.

Here’s one example of a wedding Martyn has played at in Hertfordshire

Wedding @ Sopwell House, St Albans, Hertfordshire

Martyn was asked to perform at a drinks reception at Sopwell House for Hollie and her husband-to-be.

Hollie had some idea of the music she wanted to hear during this part of her wedding, but felt a chat via Skype with Martyn would be best, just to run a few ideas by him, and hear how a couple of songs would sound on the piano.

Hollie wanted to hear repertoire by Adele, Coldplay, Foo Fighters and some jazz standards.

A nice eclectic mix to cater for all her guests.

On the day, many of the older guests were clapping along and listening to Martyn play, particularly to the Frank Sinatra numbers!

In a follow up email, here’s what Hollie had to say about hiring Martyn for her wedding day…

Martyn played the piano at our drinks reception at Sopwell House. Even our initial meeting with him, he was so professional and filled me with such confidence that I knew he would be great straight away. Boy was I right we asked him to play a couple of specific songs (Rat Pack & Foo Fighters) and Martyn had no problem in obliging us with these requests. On the actual day, Martyn was fantastic – once again so professional and bought a real sense of elegance to our reception – his playing was superb and his mixture of music throughout was spot on. We had so many comments from our guests about how amazing he was and how they want to keep him in mind for their events. Thank you Martyn – you really helped to make our wedding something special.
