I’m a UK wedding pianist now

Moving to the UK was easy, but not without stress points.

I’ve moved countries before — a few times — but France was home for the last 15 years.

The country is familiar, obviously, but changing absolutely everything around you has quite an impact. And launching a new business — again — certainly has its challenges, in these uncertain times.

A new handle on things

One of the first things I did was change my Instagram handle to “UK wedding pianist” — a name that was just waiting for me. Then I wondered how long it would be until I worked again.

Within days, a former colleague booked me for their wedding in November. Which was excellent.

A short time after that, I got a booking for a wedding at The Headland Hotel in Cornwall. Even after playing at all those chateaux in France, this building is massively impressive.

And wait until you see the view…

I was booked for the ceremony and cocktails. A baby grand was provided in the ceremony room, and then I played more publicly in the bar.

I forgot to take a panorama this time. Oops.

Four weeks to the day after my last wedding in France, I’m back in business!
