Eaves Hall Pianist

Wow what a spectacular day for Sinead and Joseph as they celebrated becoming the new Mr and Mrs Brannan. This wedding was at Eaves Hall which is an absolutely stunning, luxurious venue, just outside Clitheroe.https://www.jamesplaces.com/eaves-hall/

Sinead found me playing at a wedding fair when she was on the lookout for an Eaves Hall Pianist.

I loved playing for their ceremony and drinks reception featuring ‘I Get To Love You’ for bridal entrance, and a special arrangement I did for Sinead of ‘Lifetime’ by Justin Bieber.

What an amazing team at this wedding including

Jen and the fabulous Eaves Hall team,

Thank you Liz. We absolutely love the music provided and my only regret is not sitting down in the lounge and listening during the drinks reception to soak it all in. We have had so many compliments and I keep recommending you to friends who are engaged.

My white ‘dutchgrand’ is a lovely addition to this room which has a Bose sound system to help make a fabulous sound with the superb acoustics. It’s so nice to have a bespoke live instrumental piano version of your favourite song as you walk down the aisle.

I am very lucky to have played at The Riverbarn many times and was especially pleased to play for some close friends of the owners, who were the first couple to get married there after its amazing refurbishment and reinvention in 2022.

The Wedding of The Whitesmiths at The Riverbarn

In summer 2023 I was honoured to play for Jason and Joe Whitesmith at The Riverbarn. I have known and worked with Jason for many years as he is the events manager at Knowsley Hall. Jason wanted to choose his favourite suppliers to use at his own wedding and I was pleased and proud to be able to play for him on this special moment in his life.
Jason and Joe wanted a mash up of two songs, one to represent each of them. And so I arranged a special entrance song especially for them, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ for Jason and ‘Smash into you’ by Beyoncé for Joe. I was able to use my musical proficiency to extend each part of the piece on the day, to fit in with the timing of each groom as they walked down the aisle, behind their own entourage of bridesmaids and special guests. I also played during the drinks reception, performing from my repertoire, with a mixture of songs of all styles.


A Review from The Whitesmiths after their wedding at The Riverbarn


Jason was kind enough to write me an amazing review saying

“This amazing Lady was always going to be part of our wedding day! From the moment I met Liz at Knowsley hall (where I work) and working alongside each other at numerous weddings and events she really is the best of the best! Myself and my new husband Joseph Smith can’t thank her enough for making our day the best day possible ❤️❤️ she even learnt Joseph’s aisle song (Beyoncé – Smash in to you) from scratch because she knew how much it meant to us. If you are looking for a Pianist please look no further! I am honoured to call this lady a friend she’s magical 🩷 you will forever be part of our special day and there are no words to thank you for making our wedding the best it possibly could be! Love you lots Liz 😘😘 all our love the whitesmiths ❤️❤️🏳️‍🌈”

The Villa at Wrea Green is a country house hotel in the beautiful Lancashire countryside. There is a beautiful hall for ceremonies, a piano lounge for drinks reception and a fantastic purpose built pavilion for wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. You can often find myself or my husband Mark the Piano Guy https://www.thepianoguy.co.uk/ playing at their open events and wedding fairs as recommended suppliers.

In April Mr and Mrs Webster had an amazing wedding at the The Villa Wrea Green. I played for an emotional ceremony and there was a very fun crowd supporting this lovely couple. (Plus some unusual, gorgeous, furry guests. Alpacas!) After playing for the ceremony in the hall, I played during the drinks reception in the piano lounge.

Wyresdale Park Weddings

Wyresdale Park weddings are held in a collection of beautiful rustic barns set in rolling countryside on the outskirts of Scorton, Lancashire. There is a lovely ceremony barn with amazing acoustics, perfect for couples who are looking at having live music in their wedding ceremony. My white piano looks fantastic in this room.

Wyresdale Park Weddings with piano music

As well as in the ceremony room, the piano can be moved around throughout the day. It’s a lovely option to have a pianist throughout the wedding breakfast too which adds an ambience throughout the meal, without dominating too much, and allowing people to still chat. It also adds a talking point as many people naturally play ‘Name that tune.’
Here is the piano set up for a wedding breakfast. The beautiful flowers are provided by Bluebells and Daisies, who are based at Wyresdale Park Weddings.

They made their entrance into the room as Mr and Mrs Hughes to ‘The You and Me Song’ by The Wannadies. I then played a selection from my repertoire including songs the couple liked including Sky full of Stars by Coldplay and The Friends Theme.

Special Arrangements at Wyresdale Park Weddings

I played for the ceremony and wedding breakfast for Georgia and Ethan who wanted really unique music in their ceremony to reflect their relationship. I did special arrangements of ‘Take on the World’ by You and Me at Six and ‘The World Could End with You’ by Llunr. It was lovely to play music that meant so much to them.

I received a lovely card from them in the post.

Traditional music for Wyresdale Park weddings

In March, Lauren and Daniel booked me to play for them all day, and Lauren choose to walk down the aisle to the more traditional option of ‘Canon in D.’ This made for an absolutely beautiful entrance. They then wanted a more alternative mix of music during the meal which included Indie, dance and rock music.

Liz Hendry. Wedding Pianist



Lancashire Pianist

2023 began with the most beautiful wedding for Lancashire Pianist Liz Hendry.

Suzanna and Ewan became the new Mr and Mrs Simpson at the amazing Bartle Hall Hotel. What a beautiful winter wedding.

Suzanna and Ewan say their vows

Suzanna has great taste and picked ‘I’m Kissing You’ as her entrance music – one of the most emotional and dramatic bridal entrance pieces!!! If you are looking for a Lancashire Pianist, Liz can set up her Dutchgrand white baby grand piano anywhere to play beautiful piano music as you walk down the aisle.

They added some great unique touches to their wedding, the highlight being a blessing from their friend who is the Pastor at their church. There were some amazing room decorations and lots of treats and activities for the kids. This was a day filled with music, love and fun!!!

Lancashire Pianist Review

Suzanna said

“Highly Recommend. We met Liz at a wedding fair at Bartle Hall in May 2022. From the moment we heard her playing Bryan Adams as we walked into the venue we knew we wanted to speak to her and find out more. We knew that having Liz playing on our wedding day would be special and she was. Our wedding was 14/1/23 and everyone loved her and the different songs that were being played. Something for all ages. We can’t imagine what the day would have been like without Liz there.
Thank you Liz for making our day special.

Simply The Best – Bartle Hall Pianist

Bartle Hall was the setting for this beautiful winter wedding and Claire and Tim were an amazing and lovely couple to work for with great taste in music. Featured songs were ‘True’ by Spandau Ballet and ‘Hey Ho’ by the Lumineers. Their guests really knew how to celebrate and were all having a great time.

Claire and Tim wrote me a wonderful review on Instagram

Simply The Best – Bartle Hall Pianist

Myself and Tim cannot thank Liz enough for making our wedding day the day it was. It was the most easiest decision to make on hearing her play at the Bartle Hall open day back in April, as soon as we heard her we wanted her! We booked her there and then, had a lovely call with her to go over the song choices and she just got us and what we’re about. We wanted a song from the Lumineers for the brides entrance song. It wasn’t listed on her repertoire but Liz did it for us, absolutely loved it!!!

Such a talented Pianist and can literally play anything. She gave us goose pimples throughout the ceremony and all through dinner, everyone in the room loved her and commented. Thank you Liz for such a wonderful vibe at our wedding, you were definitely meant to be and so glad we saw you when we did. You’re amazing! Thank you! Claire and Tim xxx

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.

A Beautiful Bartle Hall Wedding

I had the honour of being part of a beautiful wedding at multi-award winning venue, Bartle Hall,  near Preston.

Beautiful wedding

The beautiful Bartle Hall, award winning wedding venue

Hayley and Anthony had a lovely ceremony here followed by a full day and evening of celebrations surrounded by their family and close friends. Bartle Hall is such a versatile and stylish venue where the guests can all relax and socialise as the wedding party move around the venue for the different parts of the wedding day. The grounds looked stunning for Hayley and Anthony’s outdoor photographs taken by Kris Clarke Photography  and the bar was cosy and festive, a great warm place to rest when the weather outside got a little cold.

Beautiful wedding music

It was fantastic to be able to play some really unique and unusual music choices for Mr and Mrs Fox during their ceremony.

Beautiful bride, Hayley walked down the aisle to ‘Kissing You’ from Romeo and Juliet. What a romantic choice! I then arranged ‘The Power Of Love’ by Gabriella Alpin/ Frankie Goes to Hollywood and ‘Real Love’ by Tom Odell/ John Lennon. It’s great to listen to these beautiful modern versions of classic hits and then make my own, instrumental piano version of them to make a special performance for my brides and grooms.

Beautiful wedding

I would like to thank Hayley and Anthony for having me at their wedding and wish them a very long and happy future together. Thank you to Bartle Hall and all the staff there, who look after me during every visit, and are so welcoming that I always feel part of the team!
