If you need an organist Craig can also play the organ for a Church wedding and then also play for the reception.

Craig brings one or two, of his own first-class, white, electric pianos.
Arrangements can be made to bring his real Yamaha baby-grand and / or his digital organ for the church if desired.
(Extra charges apply for the organ and a real grand piano).
"I have employed Craig on numerous occasions for weddings and concerts; he is a remarkably versatile musician, equally at home playing organ repertoire or pop songs and jazz. He is easy to work ...you cannot find a better musician for your wedding ......"
Judith. Dir of Music, Ivinghoe
-Virtually anything can be played on the piano....classical, jazz, modern ballads..the list is endless.
-Craig plays from his own catalogue of over 1000 songs - anything can be added - just ask.
-When playing in restaurants Craig has a menu-card for diners to play "guess that tune". Most songs are improvised around to fit the style of the event..
-Craig is proud to be referred to as a real, creative, on-the-spot musician, rather than a note-player.
A tiny proportion of popular wedding tunes include;
Can't help fallin love with you Thinking of you Just the way you are Chasing cars Somebody to love
