More About The Happy Bagpiper LLC

There is nothing quite like the bagpipe to take your wedding celebration to the next level! There are five moments in most weddings when tradition may call for a piper:

Piping just prior to the ceremony, as a “gathering” for guests. Times may vary from 5-20 minutes or so.
Processional music for the bridal party, with a different song for the bride herself to walk up the aisle.
Occasionally, the couple will request a tune during the ceremony, for remembering an absent loved one or for the candle lighting or handfasting ceremony. (Please check with the priest / pastor to make sure that the bagpipe is welcome INSIDE the church!)
At the end of the marriage ceremony, the piper often plays the newly married couple back down the aisle.
The piper may also play as guests exit the church or the wedding room (if a caterers or mansion).
Wedding repertoire is typically joyous and happy and includes a wide selection of dancing and marching tunes and songs. The Happy Bagpiper LOVES special requests and will do everything possible to honor them!
