Q. I want to add to the atmosphere on our wedding day and keep guests entertained. Why is music so important for this?

A. Stuart Collingwood says: Live music adds that special touch to a wedding that can't be achieved with recordings. I can play all of the wedding couples and guests requests and keep the music flowing, perfect for mingling and getting to know each other. All styles can be catered for from classical, jazz to modern-day favourites. I've been a professional pianist for more than 25 years now and have worked with singer Tony Christie (Amarillo) for four. I perform at 50 weddings around the UK every year and have a lot of experience in the industry. I've recorded and performed with singer John Miles and many others including Brian Johnson, Tim Healy, Jimmy Nail and Ken Dodd to name a few.
