Hear what others have to say…

“From the first day we met, we found Nick to be extremely professional and accommodating and we loved the fact that  Nick offered to learn new tracks so that we could create a truly personalised ceremony. On the day Nick needed no direction and worked to create the perfect atmosphere for the arrival of our guests. Throughout the ceremony Nick played each of our requests perfectly and during the drinks reception, when everyone moved outside for photos, Nick even repositioned yourself on the balcony ensuring the atmosphere would remain. We have already recommended Nick to couples who are planning their weddings next year, his playing ability is amazing and understanding of the wedding event ensures his booking is one that can be made with confidence.” – Mr & Mrs Dean, KP Club, KP Club, July 2015

“We want to say a big thank you to Nick for being part of our special day. The music was perfect and so many of our guests commented on how fantastic it was to have some music played during our wedding drinks and breakfast. Nick made our day extra special. He moved between rooms unnoticed and the songs he played were perfect for our wedding. We would highly recommend Nick to anyone as he is a lovely guy who takes pride and passion in his work and has a pure talent. Thank you again Nick.” – Mr & Mrs Roy, The Old Swan Hotel Harrogate, August 2015

“We had Nick play at our Wedding Ceremony and for the welcome drinks. From the beginning he was in contact with us going through what music we wanted and was also willing to learn any new songs for us.  On the wedding day he looked smart and professional and all our guests commented on how beautiful he played. We would recommend Nick to anyone and use him again at any given opportunity.” – Mr & Mrs Newton, KP Club, September 2015

Nick possesses a wide and varied repertoire of songs which he performed beautifully at our wedding over the course of several hours. He unobtrusively provided the ideal musical backdrop to a wonderful day that complimented the venue perfectly whilst allowing our guests to mingle and catch up with us and with each other. We would have no hesitation in recommending Nick to other couples for their wedding or indeed other social occasions. Thank you Nick for rounding off our day so exquisitely!” –  Wedding, Carlton Towers, 2015

“Nick Calpin produced the perfect jingle for our client. He’s quick and is able to make subtle changes with very short notice. The perfect composer for film and video projects.” – David Dunning, Foss Islands Media – 2014
“Would just like to say your music in the background sounded superb, we had loads of comments off guests saying how well you played, will definitely recommend you to friends. Thank you for being part of our day you made it extra special.” – Mr & Mrs Humphrey, KP Club, Pocklington, June 2015

We booked Nick to play during our reception drinks and after the wedding breakfast. Numerous guests commented on his beautiful playing and song choices, I admit that I didn’t expect the music to create such an impact and atmosphere!! Piano music is key to creating a romantic atmosphere and we highly recommend Nick, as he created a classy and romantic atmosphere. Our only regret……..we didn’t book him for the entire day! We can highly recommend Nick! Thank you Nick for making our Big day so special'” – Mr & Mrs Clarke, The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate, November 2014

“We want to thank you for your fantastic music throughout the day, everyone loved it. You far exceeded our expectations, thanks again” – Mr & Mrs Stammers, Carlton Towers, February 2015

“Having Nick play the piano for the whole of our wedding day really made it feel extra special. I was also delighted that Nick learnt my favourite song so I could walk down the aisle to something really memorable. Nick was really easy to work with and chose perfect songs to play throughout.” – Mr & Mrs MacMillan – The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate, December 2014

“Nick is a very talented and creative guy and was fun and easy to work with from beginning to end.  Throw some key words at him and a brief description of the project and he enthusiastically comes back with multiple demos. Nick can work very fast to complete a composition and does a very good job of creatively matching the music to the shots. We are very pleased with the final composition and very much enjoyed working with Nick. ” – Mark Fairbairn, Creative Director, VFM Associates Ltd – 2013
