We have professional Harpists to hire for weddings, receptions, parties, dinners or corporate events.
The harp is a truly magical instrument and little wonder it is at the top of many brides wish lists when it comes to music for the wedding. Harp music sounds beautiful and is equally suited to church and civil ceremonies where it can create an atmosphere unlike any other musical instrument.
Our harpists have Classical and lighter music within their repertoire and are equally at home with Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Handel’s Water Music or All You Need is Love by the Beatles! After the ceremony your harpist can play for the drinks reception and if necessary in the breakfast as well.
Should you need help with choosing the music for your wedding all our harpists are happy to advise on this as well as timings for when to have the music etc.
