Testimonials !(see Testimonials page for latest comments)


Thanks so much Stuart for playing at our wedding, great professional, fabulous piano player & singer too! Accommodated all of our needs to make our day extra special, would definitely recommend!. (Kimberley & Chris, Matfen Hall, August 2015)

Very well received and enjoyed by everyone. Stuart Collingwood was our pianist for our wedding at Rockliffe Hall on 9th August 2014 and he was superb. He was able to mix an unobtrusive presence in 2 locations with a great range of appropriate tunes impeccably arranged and delivered with a sound level which was loud enough to liberate guests from silence and self awareness to talk to each other confidently and yet quiet enough not to be noticed at a conscious level I am glad we chose Stuart and would recommend him without hesitation. (Einna & Martin, Rockliffe Hall, August 2014)

Just back from honeymoon. Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, your contribution was fantastic. Everyone really enjoyed it and it helped to create the atmosphere in the great hall we were hoping for at our evening reception. We had such a wonderful day (Kat & Myles, Matfen Hall August 2014)

Hi Stuart Just a short note to say a big thank you to for helping to make Zoe & Andrew's wedding so very special! We all thoroughly enjoyed your choice of music and would recommend you to others. Once again, Thank you (Jean & Barry Hensby, Dissington Hall-May 2014)

Hi Stuart Thank you for entertaining us last night. The music you had chosen was an excellent blend for entertaining us while eating. It was both relaxing and atmospheric. When you stopped you were greatly missed! I will certainly recommend you and look forward to you entertaining us again soon. Thanks again. ( Fiona Swan, President of Wearside Rotary Club - March 2014)

Jan and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding, and helping create such a nice atmosphere during the ceremony and reception. You played beautifully and nothing was too much trouble for you. We especially loved the Norwegian music, which made our Norwegian guests really happy! From the beginning you were very quick getting back to us, answering questions and suggesting music for our ceremony, which we really appreciated. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you, and hopefully we will see you play again in the future! Take care and thanks again for helping make our day extra special! (Gemma & Jan Close House resort, October 2013)
