Great Touch

I wanted to surprise my husband. He loves bagpiper music and so I contacted James to play at the end of the ceremony. I also wanted everyone to follow to the venue. It was a great touch and James was amazing. He was easy to work with helped with suggestions and also was able to wear a Scottish kilt. He had others to choose from. He was polite, professional and played beautifully.

Thank you James
Love The Woolley鈥檚
