I love playing at weddings!!
From learning about people’s musical tastes and finding out what “your” song is, to arriving at your venue and seeing everything waiting for you and then wondering what everyone will be wearing, I love it all. I’ve played at well over 100 weddings and I never get tired of them.
The harp is an incredibly special instrument. It creates a wonderfully subtle and sophisticated atmosphere, and will easily fill a large room with sound without being imposing. It also provides a stunning visual image. Take a look through the best bits page to see some of the beautiful places I’ve played at before.
Live music adds an incredible atmosphere to your big day. There’s no awkward cutting out of your music at the most important bit, no skipping CDs, and if you need a few extra moments before your make your entrance, any gaps in the proceedings will be filled seamlessly.
I can play during the ceremony, for example as your guests take their seats to await your arrival, while the bride makes her entrance, during the signing of the register or other papers, and then during your walk back down the aisle together as a married couple. I can also perform background music for your drinks reception and/or during your wedding breakfast.
If you are looking for music ideas, please have a look at my Repertoire page. This lists some of the more popular requests I receive. If you have a favourite song or piece of music that isn’t listed, please contact me and I can normally arrange it especially for you. I’ve played everything from the Star Wars theme as a surprise for a groom to a very special arrangement of a bride’s favourite guitar concerto, so please just ask if you fancy something a bit more unusual.
You can choose a whole set list, request a specific genre, a few favourites or leave the entire selection to me, whichever suits you best. Every wedding is different, so please contact me to discuss your individual requirements.
If you would like to hear some music choices, all wedding bookings include a free consultation at my house, or I can send you some short sample recordings.
I look forward to being a part of your big day.
