John piped at our wedding whilst all the guests arrived. John was such a pleasure to deal with,excellent communication, professional, very talented and such a gentleman. The bagpipes added such an amazing atmosphere to the wedding, the guests were telling us how they had goosebumps whilst John led us to our table. I can't thank you and your wife enough John for being part of our special day. I highly recomed John and his excellent 5 star service he provides.

" What an amazing day we had at my daughters wedding, however, John added that extra special touch. A huge surprise for most of the guests, lots of guests travelled from Scotland to Wales and this was a great welcome for them. John and Louise were very professional, they managed to provide their service at short notice and were amazingly excellent value, even more with the added bonus of photographs by Louise which were sent to me a day later. John and Louise were polite, patient and extremely discreet and professional. My daughter and her new husband along with me and the guests loved every minute of the time John was there. I was actually surprised with the service John provided with the small fee I paid. Totally outstanding and exceptional music.
Thank you John and Louise for making the day more memorable for all. "

John played at our wedding on Saturday 25th March 2017. It was a total surprise for my husband to be.
John and I discussed arrangements beforehand, he was a total professional he carried out exactly what I wanted and when I wanted it to maintain the surprise element.
Everyone loved John. He had guests in tears, for a good reason I may add they were talking about John all evening.
So John I cannot thank you enough for making our day so special and for keeping my secret.
Thank you for the lovely photos that Louise took
kind regards

"Hello John I just want to thank you very much for playing at my Mum's service this morning - especially in such horrible weather conditions.
I have always loved the pipes- and you added that special Scottish touch.
Mum was a very special person she loved all kinds of music and your music really made a difference in lifting the atmosphere.
Thank you"

John came to Barry Yacht Club's rescue on Burn's Night 2016 when our usual piper let us down. What a fantastic discovery he has turned out to be! John is super professional and has a passion for his work which made the night so special back in 2016. We had no hesitation in booking him for our Burn's Night Supper 2017 and, again, he did not let us down. The evening had drama and fun as we sangand clapped to the pipes. Barry Yacht Club is in John's diary for 2018; his presence lends authenticity and style to our event.

Recently used John for my Grandad's funeral. Wow. Just wow!! John is an outstanding player. Made a sad occasion very beautiful.
Not only is John an extremely good piper, he is very professional, smart, sensitive to the occasion and contact is superb. Nothing is too much trouble.
I would HIGHLY recommend John. Also I felt the price was beyond reasonable! Was expecting the cost to be a lot higher. But the low price does not in any way reflect in the service.
John, my family and I can not thank you enough

It was lovely to meet you and Louise today. You certainly made the occasion of my dad's funeral a very memorable one, which I shall never forget. The tunes were perfect for the occasion and very moving, especially The Queen Elizabeth 11 Salute as you walked away from the graveside.

All of our guests commented on how moving it was knowing that my dad would have loved to hear you.
Out of all the videos I watched of Pipers beforehand , yours was certainly the most professional and a joy to listen to. I am so pleased that I chose you.

Thank you for the photographs. It was very kind of Louise to take them for us. I'm glad we have them to reflect on. Many Thanks. "

"Mr Campbell attended my late fathers funeral. He was very respectful and his playing was outstanding. He played what I requested and more. He played until way after the funeral cars had left. I can highly recommend him and next time it would be lovely to see him at a wedding :). "

From the moment we booked John for our wedding he was very efficient and always responded promptly to any queries I had. We booked John to play bagpipes at our wedding on 11th September as my now husband is Scottish. He turned up early, very smartly presented and piped when the guests arrived. John piped me down the aisle and this was a truly magical moment. I can't recommend John enough, amazing piper, and person.
Thanks John."

"This very lovely man did my late uncle proud. The quality and professionalism received by John and his lovely wife was superb. I cannot thank John enough for how proud he made all the family feel. Nothing was too much trouble and John's experience and passion made it extra special. John remained in contact with me right through the funeral and spent as much time with us as we wanted. This really is a first class experience. Thank you so very much."

"My son's wedding was made really special by John playing the bagpipes, words can't express the surprise and delight for my son and daughter in law, not to mention family and guests who thought it was brilliant. John piped Calon Lan after the ceremony as a complete surprise for Charlotte, the piping of Cwm Rhondda to the top table had all the guests up singing along, as there were guests from all over this was lovely for them to see in a Welsh setting at Crai y Nos castle. Thanks also to John's wife Louise for giving John his cues and for taking some lovely photo's which were kindly emailed to us. John added something really special and unforgettable to the day and it's still talked about. Many thanks to John and Louise and we know you will continue to make people's special days really special."

"I wanted someone to pipe at my wedding in memory of my father who was a McLeod. John was fantastic and very organised - gave me lots of advice about things I hadn't thought about - reception music, what songs might go well and how he could best position himself to not impose which I was incredibly grateful for. He piped tirelessly and beautifully all the way from the civil ceremony to the church leading my guests along a beautiful path. His wife captured some fantastic photos as well without once intruding on us and it was spellbinding hearing the pipes playing as we went about our day. He really was so brilliant and unbelievable value for money. He and his wife were so friendly, polite and professional - nothing was too much to ask. A few days after the wedding he sent me a beautiful history of the pipes he played on that reduced me to tears. I really can't recommend him enough and if you are going to have pipes for any occasion - John will make it an unforgettable experience. Thankyou so much again!"

We asked John if he would play at my late mothers funeral, he basically bent over backwards to ensure that the whole thing went off flawlessly, John is a absolute professional and a awesome musician, nothing was too much trouble for him, I would have no hesitation in hugely recommending him for your event, he's a true gentleman too. Many many thanks John.

New Years' Eve Wedding 2016- Thank you John.

My husband and I enlisted John Campbell for our New years' eve wedding simply by using the internet and finding John's details. In the lead up to the wedding John was excellent in terms of being contactable, he was always quick to respond and seemed to go out of his way to give us ideas.

We booked John to arrive at the Church and play whilst guests arrived. The guests loved his presence and it made the start of the wedding very special. He was willing to pose for photographs and this was true throughout the whole wedding.

My first memory of hearing the bagpipes were on the lead up to the Church when I was in the bridal carriage with my father and we could hear the bagpipes in the distance- again this was so special and really did set the scene.

We opted for the traditional wedding and bridal marches, but upon leaving the ceremony, John started where the church organist had left off and continued with the same traditional tune.

At the Miskin Manor, welcome drinks were had to the tune of bagpipes played in the distance. John was clearly very experienced and did not over- power at all.

We were played into our wedding breakfast which was so brilliant and uplifting that our guests starting clapping and it added to the intensity and 'wow' of the occasion.

As it was new years eve, we really couldn't think of anything better than traditional bagpipes playing us into the new year, as husband and wife. It was amazing, prior to midnight, our family and friends had all gathered on the dance floor, unknown to them, John was still waiting in the wings to make his final appearance. As midnight struck and our countdown ended, John emerged from the background and parted the crown and played Auld Lang Syne. John then carried on with a medley of great songs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed and the atmosphere was electric.

Anybody considering a bagpiper should 100% consider John as we cannot think of how it could have been any better. He was professional, friendly and is outstanding at what he does!

We are so grateful, thank you John and all the best.

Katie and Mike.
