Thankyou very much for your contribution to our wedding day. As you may know, I really wanted bagpipes, being a Robertson! To have you play was such a surprise & I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your lovely music will be part of the fond memories that I have of my beautiful mother. Thankyou for making the day so memorable.

Thank you so much for your significant part in our Festival & Hymns yesterday. I appreciated your willingness to fit in with out plans & I hope we may have the opportunity to work together again sometime.
Your playing thrilled so many people & Neville Wilkie said it was the first time in his life he'd ever sung with the pipes. That would be true for most of us, I expect.
Once again, my personal thanks for your fine music-making with us.
Just a short note to say how much everyone enjoyed the sound of the pipes at our recent picnic day. The performance was of a very high standard & people are still talking about the music, the atmosphere, & the sound.

Keith and I have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to write and thank you for playing at our wedding. Having the pipes played as the guests arrived, and during and after the ceremony created such a wonderful atmosphere. In particular,
having you play as I walked down the aisle was beautiful. I know for a lot of the guests, this was the first time they had heard the pipes in real life, and we had a lot of comments from them about how it really added something special to the day.
My dad was also so pleased to hear you play, and said that as the bus he was on pulled up at Maleny Manor and you started playing, there was a real buzz amongst the guests. He also mentioned in his reception speech about how hearing the pipes brought back so many memories of his life in Scotland.
Thank you for playing so beautifully, being very responsive to all of my emails and questions, and helping to make our day so special. We would heavily recommend you to anyone thinking of having the pipes played at their wedding, or any other event, as it just added so much atmosphere and you did such a fantastic job.
From: Laura and Keith
Gordon attended our "Murder Mystery" Wedding at Flaxton Gardens on the Sunshine Coast. He delighted 186 guests on their arrival with a medley of Scottish songs which he played on the pipes superbly. Gordon piped before and after the ceremony and into the reception room with amazing precision and clarity. Everyone was treated to a very high standard of piping from a true professional. Thanks Gordon, we will definitely call on you again in the future.

I've been a celebrant for 20 years and I've never met a piper so accomplished. Thank you for your professional and flexible approach to our daughters wedding. You were terrific. In particular I loved the way I didn't have to cue you - you just knew what to do. So, our thanks again.

Just wanted to say thanks so much for a great job on Saturday for my Dads 90th. He was tickled pink and thoroughly enjoyed hearing and seeing you. Many others did too. It was so good to hear the pipes again and it brought back some great memories of my time as a tenor player in a band in NZ many years ago.
Once again a sincere thank you.
