Harpist for Weddings and Functions


Harp music is such a magical sound and can create a lovely atmosphere. Each wedding is personal but the following information will give you some idea of when it is usual to have music played.


From experience I generally find that guests enjoy harp music played for fifteen minutes or so while they arrive and settle down in the ceremony room or church. This is a great icebreaker and it can also help the groom to relax as he awaits his bride! Then I can play as the bride walks in, during the signing of the register and for the bride and groom to walk out to. I would be more than happy to help you chose the music for your ceremony.


Background music during the drinks reception creates a wonderful ambiance. During the summer months outside drinks receptions can be catered for but I only play outside if a prior arrangement has been made. Harps are beautiful but expensive instruments and they do not like direct sunlight or changes in temperature. I am happy to play outside (weather permitting) as long as there is a flat solid surface and appropriate shading (not under a sap-dropping tree!) such as a big sun umbrella to protect the harp.


Background music throughout the wedding breakfast is a lovely accompaniment for your guests to relax to. Provided that there are no more than a few steps it is relatively easy for the harp to be moved between rooms.
