Jim communicated well in the run up to the event and arrived in good time for the start time of the event.
Jim's performance was every thing we hoped it would be. He looked amazing. His bagpipe playing was to the very highest standard and he accommodated our requirements to perfection. I would highly recommend Jim to any one wishing to add something special to their wedding day. Tim.
