Pipers Outside ChurchHiring a piper to play at your wedding, dressed in full uniform and playing a finely tuned instrument will help set the tone for a memorable day. Joe has performed for weddings all over Ireland and understands that weddings are a special event and bagpipes can help add a great sense of occasion to enhance your day.

Listed below are some examples of how the pipes are often used for wedding ceremonies;


  • Pre Ceremony playing outside the church to entertain guests 20-30 minutes before the bride arrives
  • Playing the Bride down the aisle to the tune of her choice or “Here Comes the Bride” can be played on the pipes if required.
  • Marching the Bride and Groom down the aisle once the ceremony is complete
  • Playing after the ceremony during the receiving line and as guests depart for the reception


  • Play for the Bride and Groom when they arrive at the Hotel.  This sets a good tone for the reception with plenty of jigs, reels and hornpipes to liven up the crowd.
  • Pipe the Bride and Groom into the reception and top table once all the guests are seated
