- John (December 2015)

“Hi Phil,
I didn’t get the chance to thank you last Thursday. You were fantastic leading Anne into her funeral, you created the most eerily moving atmosphere that the Scots Guards couldn’t have bettered, setting the tone to give my wife a send-off that couldn’t be improved upon and Flower of Scotland topped it off wonderfully! Once again thank you from myself and family and all who attended.”
-Peter Ruff (November 2015)

Hi Phil,
Thank you so much for the part you played at our wedding. Walking into church to Highland Cathedral was absolutely amazing!!! It sounded so incredible and you looked fantastic. I will make sure I forward you a copy of the picture we had taken when I get it back from the photographer. Thank you once again.
- Katy, (3rd October 2015)

“Hi Phil
I just want to say thank you for playing on our wedding day you was fantastic and all the guests said how amazing you were so thank you so much. I have attached a few photos as well. Thanks.”
- Jack (September 2015)

“Hello Phil, 
You must have read my mind as I was telling Keith today of the need to e-mail you and thank you for last night. We were obviously aware that our guests would take an avid interest in your playing the bagpipes. It is more than fair to say everybody certainly enjoyed you!! There where people there last night who had their first experience of listening to bagpipes so close up. 
Thank you so much for being there last night. Both Keith and I certainly enjoyed the music, and are so thankful for the opportunity to hear some of our chosen music again. It may only be two weeks now but the memories of that day’s event came flooding back to the sound of your bagpipes. Once again, thank you for everything, and should anyone ever wish to hear a piper, we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you.”
- Ken and Keith (29th August, 2015)

"Good morning Phil,
I cannot thank you enough for playing at dad’s funeral on Friday. To have dad piped into church with you at the front leading the way with Amazing Grace, was something I will never forget and also being piped out of the church to Flowers of the Forest. Dad would have so loved that, as we all did. As Scots, it is such an important moment that stays with you forever and I’m sure the villagers in Port Sunlight appreciated it too.  You looked so resplendent, played beautifully and are such a warm person. Many thanks Phil”
- Sarah (28th August, 2015)

“To Phil, 
Thank you for playing such a big part on our wedding day. You were truly amazing, we both had goose bumps as soon as we saw you and heard your pipes playing. Everybody complimented on you performed. You have such a lovely calming and pleasant personality too. We are so glad we chose you.
Thank you.
- Yvonne and Andrew (2015)

“Hi Phil
Now I am back down to earth and back to reality from the wedding and honeymoon, I wanted to send an email to thank you very much for everything on our special day at The Ashes on 4/4/15, from the moment you started playing whilst I was hidden away in the bridal cottage I had goose pimples. All of our guests commented on what a special part of the day it was, and they all especially enjoyed you playing us walking into our wedding reception. I wanted to send an extra big thank you for playing that little bit extra for our guests as I was fashionably late, blame it on my tearful dad. You worked above and beyond to ensure our bagpipe experience was perfect for our special day. Thanks again.”
- Mr and Mrs Duthie (2015)

“Hi Phil,
Thanks for your lovely email and also everything you did for us on our wedding day. We could not have been happier with the part you played in our wedding; it was perfect – thank you! As a Scot, I was delighted to have a piper playing as guests arrived at my wedding, and for us to be piped in for dinner. You looked great, the tunes were exactly what I had hoped for (loved Scotland the Brave as we came in for dinner!) and nothing was too much trouble. Wishing you all the best! We would like to send you a proper thank you card. Could I have your address please?”

Kindest regards.”
- Steve and Beth (24th February, 2014)

“Dear Phil
This is an easy email to send in THANK YOU!! You played at my mum’s funeral with skill, care and diffidence. You were so respectful, caring and diligent in what you did, what you played and especially how and when you played it. The Scotland England 6 Nations is coming on now and I believe that pipers would not be able to have played how you did on Thursday in St Annes on Sea for Clarice. I sincerely apologise for the slow departure for your home journey. I would be delighted to recommend you to anyone who asks or put a recommendation on your website. Please feel free to use the thanks on this email if you feel it will work. I wish the very best wishes to you in 2014. Liverpool was not quite note perfect today although it was a delight to watch I have to say!!! You, however, last Thursday to me and my mum were note perfect. Thank you again.”
- Neil and Christin, St Annes on Sea (6th February, 2014)

“Dear Phil,
I just want to say it was a privilege and honour, and a very huge thanks for the way you played the Bagpipes recently at my dear wife Elaine’s funeral, held at the Southport Crematorium on 28th March 2013, as everyone complimented you on the way you expertly played ‘Mist Covered Mountains’ and ‘Oh Danny Boy’, and I am sure my dear departed wife would have really enjoyed hearing them as well. And you made the service right from the start to the end, a very enjoyable one for her family and friends to remember Elaine’s time with us. And, if anyone asks me, or my friends, for a Scottish Piper for their family, you will be very highly recommended to all who heard you on that day.”

Everyone commented on your presence and you looked fabulous, you almost upstaged the bride! Once again thank you so much for playing. Take Care.”

On behalf of all the family I wish to thank you so much for piping at my father’s 80th birthday celebrations. You made the celebrations very special and dad was still choked when he gave his speech after the meal.

Thank you for giving us all such special memories. Kind Regards”
- Angela Foster (16th October, 2012)

You absolutely made our day and we couldn’t have asked for more. You played your heart out. Everyone was so impressed with you and I will recommend you highly to anyone in need of a piper. One of our guests told me that they understood how terrified Edward the 1st would have been with the scots bearing down upon Lanercost after seeing us all in our garb to the sound of pipes! Anyway, I will send the pictures for your website when we get them, and if you want testimonials. I am happy to write one. Once again, many thanks. Best wishes.”

“Hello Phil,
We are just back from 2 weeks' holiday after the wedding of Isaac and Emma on 30th June at St Bartholomew’s Church, Roby. Thank you so much for your wonderful playing of many of our favourite pieces at the wedding. We have just got the video back and you feature highly on it and it is fantastic that we can recall everything from the day. I wish the weather had been slightly kinder for you, the down pour was unbelievable but you stood in the rain regardless and welcomed people. Many of our guests commented on how lovely it was to be greeted by your playing. So many thanks and if we need your services again in the future I will be in touch. Kind regards.”

Kind regards.”
- Shama and Gavin (9th July, 2012)

“Hello Phil,
I would like to thank you personally and on behalf of my family for playing at Dad's funeral. The service you provided was top rate. Dad never served in the army and most of the pipers I spoke to said they would not be able to play for him. I spoke to you and you really went out your way to help, and seeing and hearing a lone piper as my Dad was laid to rest well words don’t even come close to trying to express the emotion you feel. Dad would have loved it – he always said he wanted to go to the military tattoo but ill health stopped him going too far from his home. It means so much that we could pay this lasting tribute to him. I wish you all the very best and thank you so much.
- Mike Barber, Stockport (24th May, 2012)

“Dear Phil,
Thank you so much for Saturday – it was fantastic and you were amazing! It was such a low key event but you made it so much more special. Mum and Dad were thrilled as were the rest of the guests. The phone hardly stopped on Sunday – people were calling to say how great you were! Thanks Again!”
- Alex Farrell (14th May, 2012)

“Hi Phil,

“Dear Phil,
We would like to say a big THANK YOU for the wonderful tribute you gave to our mother at her funeral. You brought everyone to tears when you played ‘Amazing Grace’ our mother would have loved it. We cannot thank you enough and would recommend you to anyone. Thank You”
- Carole and Jackie (9th April, 2012)

This is just to thank you most sincerely for all you gave last Saturday in Gatley at our birthday celebration. We have had the most effusive letter of thanks from Dad; he clearly thoroughly enjoyed your playing, as did we all and all the time and interest you gave him. He has got to a time in his life that doesn’t have too many outside interests and where just getting by from day to day is often all he can manage. So your skills and kindness have given something he will enjoy for a long time to come. Thank you very much indeed. With best regards,”

“Dear Phil,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for playing the pipes at our wedding, we had an amazing day and it was made complete by having you there to play, as you would have seen we had a lot of Scottish family and friends attending and they were all very impressed that we brought a touch of Scotland to the Midlands! Thanks very much and I would recommend you to our friends and family for future events. Kind regards”
