|We asked Steve to come and play at our 25th Wedding Anniversary Party in June this year. We'd didn't really know anything about him but liked his website and were impressed with his repertoire. He really made our day, he is so talented and professional, he played anything we wanted him too and more. He even learnt "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds on the way down to us which we had requested and my husband sang along with him. It was fantastic. I cannot thank him enough for making our day and we will surely be booking him again. Thanks Steve.|

|Steve played at our wedding in Hampshire and the standard of music was exceptional. Steve played during both the ceremony and wedding breakfast and kept all our guests entertained and in awe of the fabulous music played. We were able to choose our own song choices for the ceremony and they sounded awesome played on the piano. Steve helped us a lot with the music played during the signing of the register and the breakfast and we would highly recommend Steve as a pianist. My husbund and I live in New Zealand and organised our wedding from abroad and the communication and assistance that Steve gave us was faultless. Thank you so much Steve and we wish you all the best in the future!|

|Steve played during dinner at our wedding a few weeks ago and was absolutely fantastic! He played such a great variety of music and really helped to make the atmosphere at our reception brilliant. His playing was faultless, he was friendly and professional at all times and couldn't have been more helpful whenever I contacted him in the lead up to the day. Highly recommended.|
|Steve played during the meal at my wedding recently and was fantastic! Everyone commented on how good he was and what a great variety of music. I sent Steve a list of songs that we wanted played and he learned some that he didn't know already. He was very accomodating and made the day even more perfect. Steve was always quick to reply to emails and the whole process was stress free! I've already recommended him to someone else looking for a pianist at their wedding. Top service!|
|Steve was hired to play the first song at my wedding and proved to be a brilliant idea as he performed the song to a high level with upmost accuracy to an asian track that he had never played. |
he showed a high level of profesionalism and i was very pleased with the outcome.
|Steve played at our recent wedding - at both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast and was excellent throughout! He even learnt two of our favourite pieces from scratch. It was just what we wanted - thank you!|
|Steve was both professional and personal from the time we contacted him. He went out of his way to learn a Japanese song for our wedding, and provided a service that is beyond words to express how great he is. The day would have been a completely different day without him. I can with confidence that you won't go wrong with Steve Christie. Go ahead and book him! He's superb!!|
|We were late in booking a pianist for our wedding and asked Steve if he could come in and entertain our guests on the saturday between Xmas and New Year.|
He played during the ceremony some very difficult classical peices that we knew other pianists werent able to play (or play poorly), including "Queen of Sheba".
His knowledge of songs both classical peices and also 'modern' in terms of Pop, soul, rock music was astounding and played some superb versions of songs that both bride and groom listed for him as 'songs our lifetime so far'. All faultlessly played !
Talk about going that extra step - The Groom and Best Man are in a band together and Steve even learnt a song that they wrote many years ago and played it instrumentally perfect...something that was a really pleasant surprise to them both during dinner and got a round of applause!
I would confidently recommend Steve Christie as a pianist who can add that special air of quality, class and a lovely musical atmosphere to any wedding, ceremony and during the wedding breakfast.
Everyone wants to hit the right atmosphere on the day, and Steve Christie is one of the best ways to help deliver that.
Many thanks again Steve, and good luck in the future!
