As a spectacular conclusion to any Scottish wedding celebration, we can organise a pipe band to beat the retreat. Usually the spectacle includes a 16 piece band in full Number 1 uniform (with the big furry hats) marching, making formations and can include a drum fanfare.
We will (on request) arrange a salute to the chieftain. This is where a member of the pipe band requests the bride and grooms permission to leave at the end of their performance. Sometimes highland dancers are also included in pipe band shows.
Performances generally last between 5-25 minutes, although we work with your specifications to organise whatever you require up to a full hour concert.
Usually the bands are 16 piece, including bagpipers and drummers (snare, tenor and bass). Throughout history pipe bands have helped add music to special occasions. Today we can rouse your guests and entertain them with a spectacular end to your wedding day.
Pipe bands can lead guests to their awaiting carriages to conclude the evenings celebrations on a high.
