The Harpist - Perfect for a wedding ceremony and drinks reception.

The dulcet tones of the harp can create a truly magical moment at a wedding or drinks reception. A typical Wedding ceremony package includes a half hour pre-ceremony recital as the guests assemble, the entrance of the bride, a signing of the register interlude and the exit of the wedding couple. Our excellent Harpist is also a trained classical singer, this makes her the ideal artist to have for your wedding celebrations. Although she does not sing at the same time as playing, she is always happy to incorporate any separate vocals.  Why not have her sing and then play, combining her talents for your special day! Various packages available for ceremony, drinks and wedding breakfast.
