A lifetime of experience playing the piano…..
Pianist Richard Sully is one of the most sought after wedding and event musicians currently working in the UK. He was resident for several years at London’s Savoy and has played at a vast number of hotels and venues in the southern UK as well as at establishments in many parts of the world during his career. He has entertained American Presidents, members of the British royalty and, among other things, was delighted to be asked to play at the British wedding reception of George & Amal Clooney in 2014.
He performed at American entrepreneur Elon Musk’s birthday party as well as at Queen Noor of Jordan’s 60th birthday party at her residence near Ascot. He was recently booked to perform for the retirement and Knighthood parties of champion jockey Sir A.P McCoy and has been asked to play at Oxfordshire’s Blenheim Palace for several family occasions as a guest of the Duke of Marlborough. In 2016, he performed several pieces live on BBC1 as part of ‘Children In Need’.
Richard has played at countless weddings and private events during the course of his career. Covering all styles of popular music and light jazz including the great standards and music from film and theatre, he draws from a vast repertoire of material all of which is played from memory. He’ll undoubtedly add a ‘wow’ factor to your wedding or event and will immediately be able to play most requests your guests might make!

No problem if your chosen venue doesn’t have a piano…..
Wherever you’re planning to hold your wedding, party or special event there’s no need to worry about whether or not your venue has a piano available for use. Richard Sully is able to provide state of the art portable piano equipment and PA system allowing him to work just about anywhere you might have in mind!
In Autumn 2019, Richard started offering the supply of a Dutchgrand piano for weddings and private events. The piano looks like a baby grand but can be transported just about anywhere you have in mind provided it’s not at the top of ten flights of stairs! It can be set up anywhere where there is reasonable access and can just as easily be set up outside as inside. With the cost of hiring a conventional acoustic grand piano likely to more than double the cost of hiring a pianist, the portable Dutchgrand is proving an extremely popular choice and, with only a relatively modest hire charge, will greatly enhance the look and feel of any wedding or event.
So, if you’re planning to hold an event which will take place in several different rooms or parts of a venue then you needn’t worry – with all of Richard’s piano equipment being relatively portable, just about any itinerary can be catered for.
