Wedding Testimonials

"Dear Gordon: Please accept our apologies for taking so long to thank you for the exquisite job you did performing at our wedding...We receive many compliments on your music and were delighted by the variety of music you performed. I hope you've had more success with your music career - you certainly have the talent and the poise! All the best...Sincerely, Maria and Leon Martin" *And Leon adds in a postscript: "...I sure enjoyed singing that little number with you. We have watched the video of it a couple of times..." card sent Dec 1994 *I played at their wedding in the summer of that year at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville (which is in the GTA or Greater Toronto Area). It was my first engagement as a Toronto Area Wedding Pianist. Since then, over the past seventeen years, I've enjoyed playing for many Toronto area weddings. But I'll always remember that first one. They were a terrific couple, and their wedding was truly memorable. The little number that Leon is referring to is 'Some Enchanted Evening' from the musical 'South Pacific' by Rodgers and Hammerstein.

"Hi Gordon,
I just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for your beautiful performance at our wedding. As soon as we found out there was a piano at our event space we knew that we wanted to do something better than hitting "play" on a CD. When we came across your website and listened to some samples, we knew right away you would be the perfect fit. "Trumpet Voluntary" sounded GORGEOUS, and when my bride came down the isle to your lovely rendition of the Bridal March, well let's just say it was a perfect moment that I will never forget.
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day, your calm and pleasant demeanor was perfect for a nutty and sometimes stressful event. I would recommend you to anyone.
Derek and Lindsay"

"Gordon played at our wedding reception for 3 hours, and throughout the evening he thoroughly entertained our guests. As the evening progressed, Gordon’s wide repertoire of songs was greatly appreciated, and he successfully evaluated the mood of the audience and included additional songs.
Throughout the evening, we heard from our friends and family on how wonderful Gordon played, and how his music set the right mood my wife and I wanted for our wedding reception. We have no hesitation in recommending Gordon to anyone who is interested in having a pianist play at their upcoming event. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Gordon for adding to the magic of our wedding day.

"Dara and I want to thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception at Le Parc Banquet Hall, Markham. The music was absolutely beautiful. I come from a musical family and we were all blown away with the fluidity of your hands when playing such beautiful pieces. The guests were truly entertained and were complimenting you the entire night. Your piano playing added to the amazing night that was had.
You are as professional as you are amazing at what you do. We will 100% keep in touch for future events.
Thank you again!
Anthony and Dara"

"We were fortunate to come across Gordon Murray's website while searching for a pianist for our son's wedding reception on June 2 of this year. As his website demonstrates, Gordon is well-versed in all types of music. As our guests entered the reception area, he was able to offer a well-rounded repertoire of contemporary, classical, operatic, 50's and 60's selections, as well as Italian and Irish favourites. What we also appreciated was that he was extremely punctual in spite of the great distance he had to travel to reach our event venue. Gordon is a true professional.
Thank you, Gordon!

"We used Gordon as a piano player for our wedding ceremony and our cocktail hour, and his performance far exceeded our expectations. Gordon accommodated our requests to include songs in our ceremony such as Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and John Legend's "So High." As untraditional as these choices were, Gordon played them with such elegance - I have never heard those songs that we cherish played so beautifully. His broad range from popular to classic makes him perfect for any kind of event.
Thank you, Gordon, for making our day perfect!

Take care and all the best,

Toronto Area Wedding?

If you're one half or both halves of a couple that will be getting married, are in the GTA, and are looking for an experienced Toronto Area Wedding Pianist to play for your wedding (either for both the ceremony and cocktails/dinner or just for the latter), please consider me for your special day. I'd love to play for you! Weddings really are my favourite occasion to play at. Why? Well, as I enjoy playing beautiful and timeless classic love songs (Please feel free to sample the ones on the Listen To Clips page), I feel very much in my element when I play at weddings. For your wedding, in addition to beautiful and timeless classic love songs, I'd also draw upon a wide array of extremely romantic and popular classical piano pieces (e.g. 'Liebestraum' & 'Clair de Lune') which you and your guests would be sure to enjoy. You wouldn't have to sing 'Some Enchanted Evening', but I can promise you that I'd do my very best to add to the enchantment of your special day! I can also promise you excellent rates and references.

Booking

After consulting with the bride &/or groom to be and determining the total number of hours I'm to play for, I prepare a simple deposit-contract. This deposit-contract includes all pertinent information such as the date, time, location, total amount, amount payed (half of the total amount), and amount payable (at the wedding). The bride &/or groom to be and myself meet briefly for the booking which involves the following two steps: 1) The bride &/or groom to be pay(s) me for half of the total amount. 2) The bride &/or groom to be and myself sign two copies of the deposit-contract and retain one copy each.
