A Winter Wedding

Chloe and Gareth Fairclough were married on Saturday 16th November at the beautiful and stylish Ashfield House in Standish, Wigan. What a stunning winter wedding with beautiful room dressing. This included white pumpkins, and flowers and foliage designed in all different and complimenting shades of purple by Sarah from The Rose Boutique.

Unique Music Choices

Chloe and Gareth were keen for their ceremony music to be unique, and a reflection of themselves and their diverse tastes in music. Chloe walked down the aisle to my arrangement of ‘Always’ by Blink 182 and for the grand exit they chose ‘Shooting Star’ by Air Traffic. This was an amazing song to play, which I was delighted to learn it, especially for them. Their song choices for signing the register also included ‘God Only Knows’ by The Beach Boys, ‘Waterfall’ by The Stone Roses and ‘Love You Til’ The End’ The Pogues, which featured in the film ‘PS I Love You.’

I was pleased to receive a review from Chloe the next day which said

“Liz played at our wedding (ceremony and drinks reception) on Saturday and was absolutely incredible ? She played a great mix of songs for us and we were so made up hearing them! Liz is so talented (my mum has cried every time she’s heard Liz play!) and a lovely person, we’re so glad you were at our wedding! Thank you x”

This review can be found on my Facebook page alongside many other reviews written by my brides and grooms.

Simply Stunning Piano Music

Mandy and Emily were married in a simply stunning ceremony at Ashfield House with piano music from Liz Hendry 

Ashfield House is an award winning wedding venue in Standish.  Live Piano Ltd are honoured to be one of the recommended providers for their weddings and we frequently attend their open evenings.  This is where Mandy and Emily first met Liz Hendry and heard her piano music.  It is a fantastic idea to go and see a wedding venue when it is all set up for a beautiful wedding.  We find that our piano music is a great addition to the atmosphere of any wedding venue, particularly so at Ashfield house as our brides will confirm.  Check out the kind words Many and Emily sent to us.

The first time we heard Liz was at a wedding open evening at Ashfield House. As we walked into the ceremony room she started playing ‘Heaven.’ It was simply stunning! We looked at each other and knew not only had we found our venue but also the person who would be playing as we walked down the aisle.

On the day she was truly amazing, and even better than we remembered. She set the atmosphere and pretty much brought a tear to everyone’s eye. If you are looking for live piano music for your ceremony, reception drinks or wedding breakfast then look no further. We cannot thank you enough Liz. You were fantastic.

Vow Renewal Music

Anthony and Gill Rudd chose me to provide their vow renewal music with my White Baby Grand Piano at one of my favourite wedding venues- Ashfield House in Standish. The couple, who normally reside in Australia, decided to celebrate their many years together by having a wonderful ceremony to renew their wedding vows, and then a gorgeous celebration at award winning wedding venue, Ashfield House.

Vow renewal music choices

The day began with Gill walking down the aisle,looking absolutely stunning, to ‘Pachelbel’s Canon in D.’ The ceremony included beautiful readings from their lovely daughters. At the end of the vow renewal ceremony was a surprise for Tony. An old friend from his military background, Anthony ‘Bruce’ Draper played ‘Highland Cathedral’ on the bagpipes as the couple walked out of the ceremony hand in hand. This was a very emotional moment with this haunting melody adding to the amazing atmosphere.

The day then continued with drinks in the bar and photographs outside taken by one of our industry friends, Christopher Lewis Photography . Gill and Tony also had a video made by Lauren Simpkin Films which would be a lovely momento of the day.

The guests then relaxed in the restaurant with a delicious three course dinner provided by the catering team at Ashfield House whilst I played piano music throughout. Gill had requested a few songs which I added to my selection for the day including ‘How Will I Live Without You’ by Leanne Rimes, ‘Heaven’ by Bryan Adams, ‘Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’ by Aerosmith, ‘It Must Be Love’ by Madness and ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri.

It it was an honour to be a part of this very special day which was all about the importance of family and a fantastic couple, still very much in love after their many years of marriage! It was fantastic to speak to Tony at the end of the day who thought that their choice of vow renewal music, especially music played live on the piano had made such a difference to making their day really special.

Another great testimonial for Liz Hendry

“Liz is not only a fantastic pianist but is the perfect person to have organising your entertainment at your wedding as she is super calm and stays connected either by phone/text or email. She played most of the songs we requested and tailored where she played to the weather and style of wedding so we were lucky enough to have Liz playing outside. Liz was a big part of making our day magical and playing whilst I walked down the isle I will never forget.”
