The harp has become a popular choice of live music to have at weddings. Its mellifluous tones do not intrude on your day but enhance the character and ambience.
Music can be played before and during the ceremony, at the drinks reception, the Wedding Breakfast or for any combination of these, ending with the speeches.
Every wedding is individual and this is the opportunity for you to select your own music according to your personal tastes. I am happy to guide you and help suggest repertoire. Everybody is welcome to come to one of the many wedding fairs I attend throughout the year where we can meet and discuss your ideas. You will be able to hear the music played live on my beautiful maple and gold harp.
Before the ceremony I will play for about 15-20 minutes as your guests are taking their seats. This creates an ambience and helps calm any nerves.
As the ceremony begins you will be required to choose a piece for the bride's entrance, 2-3 pieces for the signing of the register and exit music for the bride, groom, and their guests.
Following the ceremony, your guests may be offered drinks whilst photographs are being taken. I can help create a soothing atmosphere and you can relax in the knowledge that your guests are being entertained.
I will play throughout the wedding breakfast, culminating with the clearing of the dessert course. Music played during this part of the day will encompass a variety of lighter styles which often leads to guests playing along with "Name That Tune"!
