Dorel did a great job at our wedding. He played exactly the styles we had requested and engaged with our guests - It did not just feel like a 'job' for him. We were very happy indeed.

Dorel was great. Continuously played throughout lunch service and was a very nice guy to deal with. Highly recommend. The black grand piano shell was an added bonus and looked fab!

, Wedding, Hampshire

We were recently lucky enough to have Dorel play at our wedding and cannot recommend him highly enough. The music played was exquisite and everyone has commented on how wonderful it was. We were able to mix some classical pieces with instrumental versions of more modern songs that have special meaning to us. Dorel was set up and ready to go when our guests arrived and was very discrete in packing away. I cannot describe how amazing the music was and how much it added to our special day. We are very grateful to Dorel for providing such an exceptional service.
