Wesley is a highly experienced wedding and function pianist with an extensive collection of both classical and contemporary music. Having learned to play the piano by ear, he has gone on to develop a style of his own, and receives positive feedback wherever he plays.

He is particularly good at keeping up to date with contemporary artists playing all the latest hits by the likes of Adele, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, David Guetta, Katy Perry and many more!

The choice of music was left to his discretion and was perfect for the occasion. He is a very accomplished and versatile pianist! Jonathon, Drinks Reception, Leicestershire

Wesley has performed at countless weddings across the country in impressive venues such as Hazlewood Castle, Stapleford Park, Colwick Hall, Stubton Hall and the exclusive Lansdowne Club.

Wesley is friendly and flexible, and is happy to help you decide on exactly the right songs for your day. If your venue doesn't have a piano, Wesley will bring his own high quality digital piano and PA system.
