“A great pianist who is a must for any wedding” Toastmaster Timothy Lee
I’m Simon Jordan, a wedding and function pianist based in Bucks. I specialise in piano music for weddings and can play for your ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast.
You can hire me to play my own piano – or an instrument at your venue – from £175.
I’ve over 20 years’ experience playing for weddings and receptions and regularly perform at venues throughout England and Wales.
A piano at your wedding
A pianist at your wedding can create a relaxing and unique atmosphere, provide your favourite music in the most romantic way and then set the tone of the rest of the day. In the hands of the right pianist, this most versatile of instruments can provide an extraordinary range of different musical colour.
A great pianist can provide a stunning soundtrack to your wedding ceremony. From church hymns to your favourite song, or relaxing background music, wherever you are getting married, and whatever you want to hear, the piano is the perfect instrument.
Wedding Drinks Reception / Canapés
While you are busy with the photographer, the best pianist can stop the atmosphere from going flat and keep your guests entertained – as well as taking requests. Now your friends and family have the chance to talk and catch-up, a friendly and versatile piano player will provide the perfect conversation starter.
Your guests are in the same seats for a couple of hours – so let the entertainment begin! A well chosen wedding pianist can play everything from today’s chart-toppers to the great songs of the past and a few light classical pieces to whet the appetite. Your guests will be enthralled, and a magical atmosphere will be created.

Choose Every Track I Play
This pianist won't make you choose from a list - you pick the music for your wedding day.
No One Has More Experience of Weddings
I know when to play - and when to be quiet. I talk to the venue before the day and leaves nothing to chance.
Are you looking for live piano music for your wedding ceremony, reception or wedding breakfast?
You should be booking pianist Simon Jordan! The piano is the most versatile of all musical instruments and will keep your guests happy and entertained for hours. From the tranquil relaxation of classical composers like Bach and Mozart, to the upmarket cocktail piano sounds of Gershwin and Cole Porter, to the music of today like Ed Sheeran and Adele. In Simon Jordan’s hands, the piano never ceases to entertain!
The pianist sets the tone at the beginning of the day. His music relaxes and welcomes your guests, but encourages them to take their seats. Bride and groom enter to their favourite music – played 100% live.
Wedding Reception / Wedding Drinks Reception
While you are away being photographed, your guests can relax and get to know each other with a mix of music that really breaks the ice – you can even choose every song, if you wish!
Keep all your guests happy as you eat and ‘work the room’. A two-hour-long dinner will zip by as you share smiles when one of your favourite tunes really hits the mark with a guest.
My lovely couples said the following about me:
I can’t recommend him enough
Simon played the piano for our wedding day, during the guests sitting down and bridal party entrance, reception drinks and wedding breakfast. I can’t recommend Simon enough, his repertoire of songs is so vast, and I was constantly sending him updated lists of songs we wanted him to play. I wish I had a recording of all the songs he played because they sound so beautiful on the piano, I could have listed to him play all day long. Thank you again Simon, you helped make our day so special!
Fantastic musician, extensive repertoire and thoroughly nice chap!
The best pianist
Simon Jordan really is the best UK pianist, and he played our favourite music to create the perfect wedding atmosphere
What is a wedding pianist?
A wedding pianist is a piano player who specialises in playing music for weddings. The wedding pianist knows all styles of music and keeps in touch with the most popular songs chosen by brides and grooms. The pianist knows exactly at which points in the wedding ceremony and reception to play the music, and works closely with the priest, celebrant or registrar. A wedding piano player will bring an instrument or keyboard or play the piano already installed at the wedding venue. A wedding pianist is happy to learn and play any song. The piano player knows that it is your day and will not try to be the centre of attention.
