What to expect from your Wedding Piper
We may be a little biased here at The National Piping Centre, but we don't think there's anything that'll add more occasion to an event than the presence of a piper! Through our own Piper Hire service, we supply extremely professional, competent and expert pipers in full Highland dress for a whole range of occasions, so we’re pretty well-versed in what your piper can do for you on your wedding day. We love sharing our expertise, so here’s our advice on what to expect, so that you know exactly what to ask for when making your enquiries!

Catering for your Wedding
Arranging catering for your wedding can be one of the most daunting tasks: not only will your largest outlay be on food and drink, but your guests are likely to hold on to memories of their meal, where they might forget the songs your DJ played.
