Super talented!
Thank you so much Elinor for the beautiful music at our wedding! It was magical. I particularly loved that you learned Ellie Goulding's 'Love me Like you Do', especially for us as it is 'our song'. Don't go far.. we'll be booking you for our anniversaries! x

Made the day magical
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you played so beautifully, it made the day feel so much more magical. I was really so happy with the music I heard, the harp really is a wonderful instrument, it really added to the atmosphere. I understand you were playing quite a bit while everyone was waiting for me to arrive! So many guests came up to me and said how great you are, you are truly very talented.

You were absolutely superb
Thank you for playing at my daughters wedding. We all thought you were absolutely superb - we had amazing comments from everyone about how fantastic you were and even the hallmark staff commented how wonderful it was to listen to you. You really did us proud and it made the day. My mum and dad were so impressed and it made my daughters wedding special. Fantastic repertoire.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I performed at one wedding where the groom was 40 minutes late...when he arrived it was by helicopter so he certainly made an entrance!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try to enjoy planning the wedding- minor details can be stressful but on the day everything comes together, so enjoy the experience!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to discuss all the details with the couple via email or phone, and then thesis followed by a contract and deposit to secure the date. I can offer the couple advice on music choices for their ceremony or I am happy to take requests. About a month before the wedding I get in touch with the couple just to double check final details.
