About Harris Piping - Bagpiper

Both during the ceremony and your reception, music is a very significant part of your wedding day. It should be carefully selected and played by professionals, and that's when Harris Piping comes in. Feel free to ask them about examples of wedding repertoire for some ideas about tune selection and to hear some examples.

Experience

At Harris Piping they have a wealth of experience performing at weddings and a repertoire that will ensure you have exactly the type of music needed for your big day.

Services offered

You may already know exactly where you want them to play, but if not, they would recommend you some moments of your special day:

  • Wedding ceremony: playing as guests arrive or leave the wedding ceremony, leading the bridal car along the driveway to the church or venue, during the register signing, leading the processional and/or recessional and playing whilst photographs are being taken - you may include them if you wish.
  • Wedding reception: playing as guests arrive at the reception venue, leading the bride and groom to the top table and entertainment after dinner.

Other services

If you like, Harris Piping also offers you the possibility of having an own personal piper on your wedding.

Areas covered

Although based in Ulster, they are willing to travel the length and breadth of Ireland to provide an unparalleled service and will gladly take the skirl of the pipes to the most unusual of places.
