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.

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.

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.
