“I will never forget the moment my bride to be walked in to Highland Cathedral on the pipes - absolutely brilliant. Alan was flexible and patient as we faffed about a bit after the ceremony working out what to do with the guests while we had our photo's taken. In the end he piped 150 down through the village to the reception venue - people are still talking about it today! Thanks Alan!”
