 Mateusz & Sara Ruman – 4th June 2011, Gdów, Poland

Mateusz & SaraMateusz and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew for his amazing piping at our wedding in Poland last month.

I had always imagined that Andrew would pipe at my wedding ever since we were at school together, but I did not comprehend that twelve years later he would happily travel to Europe for the occasion and we are thrilled when he agreed to do it.

We managed to keep Andrew’s presence a secret until the moment he piped my step father and I into the church and down the aisle. Mateusz’s family were very surprised and impressed by his majestic sound and appearance. They are still talking about him today.

Andrew has a fantastic personality and got on well with all of our guests from both sides of our family, he was also very flexible and played at various times throughout the day and evening. He helped us to choose appropriate music and played away in the background as guests gathered at different points.

We would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a piper and will definitely be calling on him again for any future occasions.

Once again, Thank you from us and all of our guests, you made our wedding perfect!

Sarah Lumsden - Broomhall Castle

I was very pleased with Andrew's piping - he was both very flexible with the organisation and performed great on the day. We were looking for a piper for the reception venue but not the wedding service where we already had other music. Most of the other companies we contacted would only offer fixed packages at fixed costs which were a lot more than what we were interested in. Andrew was happy to accommodate our request and his quote was very reasonable. On the day he greeted us as we arrived at the venue and kept everyone entertained at the reception. He even piped us into dinner which was great fun and got the room going! I would recommend his services to others for any occasion.

Thanks Andrew

Help For Hero’s Jubilee Challenge June 2012

 

We were contacted by Andrew Elliott who expressed a keen interest in assisting with any of our Help for Heroes Challenges. We are always on the lookout for experienced musicians and so we invited Andrew to join us on our H4H Jubilee Challenge – a trek to light a beacon at the summit of Ben Nevis to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

Our team of fundraisers were delighted that Andrew was able to join us, he was very easy going and friendly, and everyone commented on how fantastic his impromptu performances were as they trekked up the mountain. He was even happy to perform requests for the passing general public!

As the sun was beginning to set, several trekkers were becoming fatigued and starting to slow down. They were delighted to hear Andrew piping from just over the hill; it spurred everyone on and put them in great spirits to reach the summit. Once at the top, Andrew piped while the beacon was being lit – it was a truly spectacular moment which no-one at the summit will ever forget.

 Andrew is clearly very passionate about his work and this shines through when you watch him perform. We would be delighted to invite him to any other Help for Heroes events in the future.

Vivian & Sean Mason - Stirling University

My husband Sean and I found Andrew via the internet. The fact that Andrew is ex-military and both Sean and I were ex-Army, really appealed to us, and we were not disappointed. We booked Andrew to pipe for our Wedding on 20th July this year. Andrew was very professional from initial contact via email to taking part in our Wedding photos. We loved the uniform and the fact he paid particular interest to the music we wanted and was so personable to all our guests, letting them pose for photos with him. We would thoroughly recommend booking Andrew for any event and can not thank him enough for going that extra mile for us on our special day. Sean and Vivian Mason
