Harp at Your Wedding

Harp music adds a beautiful romantic touch to set the mood for one of the most important days of your life. One of the most beneficial things about having live music during your ceremony is that transitions will be seamless, no matter what happens! The harp offers an emotive atmosphere and a peaceful, romantic ambience.

I have been playing at weddings for over 15 years and feel privileged to share these important moments with my clients. I have played at all kinds of different weddings: modern, traditional, Catholic, Persian, Jewish, Hindu, from hundreds of people to intimate elopements, you name it! Every wedding is different and I am happy to work with you to create a personal music plan that perfectly compliments your special day.

I would just like to thank you for the beautiful job you did on Sunday. Hearing your music as I was about to walk down the aisle was enough to bring tears to my eyes, and I would like to especially thank you for learning to play Glasgow Love Theme. It is one of my favourite songs and I thought you executed it beautifully. I’m only sorry that I wasn’t around for cocktail hour to hear you play more!

Thank you again, Brett and I were so thrilled!

How does it work?

Prelude and Postlude
Drawing upon my classical, jazz, and pop repertoire, I will put together a light, romantic selection while the guests arrive and depart. Of course, I am more than happy to take special requests.

Ceremony Music: Processional, Singing of the Registry, and the Recessional
For the processional and recessional, there are many traditional songs to pick from, or you can choose something a little different! Depending on your preferences, you can have a separate processional for the bride and the bridal party, or one for the whole procession. The recessional is best suited to celebratory songs, as it is the first time you will join hands and walk as a married couple.

For the signing of the registry and any other point in your ceremony you would like musical accompaniment, I can play a favourite from my collection or any special requests you may have.

Reception/Cocktail hour
I have a large repertoire of popular and jazz music perfect for your reception or cocktail hour. I can easily amplify the harp to make it can be enjoyed over the chatter of guests, and am happy to put together an ensemble with other instruments should you wish to change things up!
