Testimonials of Matthew Clayton – Wedding Piano Player in Cardiff, South Wales

“I would wholeheartedly commend Matthew to any bride and groom who are considering employing a pianist for their special day. He is clearly a gifted pianist and has a professional approach that quickly puts one at ease. On the day he played a range of contemporary and classical pieces that not only culminated in providing a wonderful soundtrack for our reception and ceremony but also curried very favourable comments from a number of our guests.” ⭐ 

Fiona Wellstead

“We hired Matt to play the piano at our wedding, both the service and during the reception afterwards.  His professionalism was exemplary, he was great to deal with in person and, most importantly, he played superbly!  We had an unusual musical arrangement for the service and Matt worked with our singer in advance to make sure that everything ‘hit the right note’ so to speak!  We then left the music selection up to him for the drinks reception and he good the mood just right as the celebrations began.  I couldn’t recommend him more highly.  All the best Matt and thanks again” 

Elinor Harris

"Matthew played at our wedding 15th August 2021. He was fantastic and really added to the atmosphere of the day. All of our guests were extremely complimentary of his playing and mixture of music choices

We re-arranged our wedding 3 times due to the pandemic and every time I messaged Matthew he was always extremely accommodating and easy going". 

Jessica Moreton 

"Matthew played during the wedding breakfast at our wedding earlier this month. The guests loved it and the music was a perfect addition! Would definitely recommend, thank you Matthew! Sioned and James"
