Weddings and Events

A harp can add atmosphere at any wedding or event. Its unobtrusive sound and elegant appearance can create a feature point in any room. I can play either my large Lyon and Healy pedal harp, or my smaller Clarsach.

Previously I have played for anniversary celebrations, corporate events and private dinner parties. I can play for your wedding ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast, or a combination of the three!

Wedding ceremony

I can provide harp music for all aspects of your ceremony; as your guests arrive to be seated, processional music, pieces during the signing of the register, and recessional music.

Should you need any help deciding suitable pieces for each part of the ceremony, I shall be happy to provide suggestions! I feel it is important that the choices are special to you both. Take a look at my repertoire list for ideas. Providing I have enough notice, I am happy to learn some requests.

Drinks reception

If you would like music provided whilst you mingle with your guests and wait for photographs to be taken, the harp can float above conversation and provide entertainment. Providing the weather is dry, and there is a solid surface, it is possible for the harp to be moved outside for a drinks reception.

Once again, I will happily accept musical requests for this part of the day, or else select from my own repertoire to suit the mood.

Wedding breakfast

The harp can be played throughout the wedding breakfast, often providing music for the entrance of the married couple, and breaking for speeches.

If you have a request for the couple's entrance, do let me know.

From start to finish the booking process was smooth; after booking Eleanor she made contact promptly and was very informative to what happens on the day which eased wedding plans. When Eleanor arrived she made herself known , she played beautifully and every request was met with enthusiasm! Eleanor was a delight to have at our wedding! Despite the rain she managed to move her harp across to another part of our venue which amazed us! Eleanor is versatile, professional and such a great harpist who made our wedding ceremony complete. Thank you so much, cannot recommend enough.
