Elopement Weddings in Scotland are a speciality of ours.  We love the intimate and relaxed feel that such a small wedding generates.  We always feel extra privileged to be part of a micro wedding team on the day.  A great sounding piper can add a very special musical backdrop,  particularly in remote outdoor locations.

With Covid19 decimating traditional sized weddings in Scotland for such a lengthy period we believe smaller elopement and location based weddings will increase in popularity.

Get in touch with us now to learn how we can tailor a wedding piper package to take your special and unique day to the next level.  

Happy to suggest some amazing locations as well.
