Every event is unique in its own right, so for a quotation please contact me. However to give you an idea of approximate costs for a wedding within 25 miles of Brentwood/Essex:
Ceremony only: £250
Playing for up-to 30 minutes for your guests arrival. Your choice of music for the entrance, exit and signing of the register. Approximate time for ceremony usually 30 minutes (1 hour with the additional 30 minutes of playing for guests arrival).
Drinks reception only: £250 (approx time 1.5 hours)
Wedding Breakfast only: £325 (approx time 2/2.5 hours)
For all three (i.e. the ceremony, the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast) total cost £395. This includes the cost of my professional digital stage piano and compact amplifier should you need it. Please note that London engagements will be more due to the conjestion charge and parking charges. Other additional charges maybe included for accompanying friends/relatives & costs for rehearsals etc. Certain times of the year/dates (i.e. Holiday Periods /New Year’s Eve) etc will also include an additional charge.
Baby Grand Piano – additional £75
Word of advice: please do be aware of wedding pianists that are working for agencies/for someone else. As you would expect, you will be charged more money for this, the ‘middle man’ will be making a profit. In addition, there are many mediocre pianists/musicians working for agencies and themselves charging a lot of money!
Be sure that you have heard and ideally seen the specific pianist you are booking play.
If in doubt please do come and chat to me and listen for yourself.
