Her music was beautiful
Harriet played for us during our wedding ceremony and reception. Her music was beautiful and many of the guests commented on how impressed they were by her playing. Her harp sounded lovely as background music, as it wasn't overpowering and allowed people to hold conversation and still appreciate the music. Harriet also went out of her way to learn new songs I had requested. I would definitely recommend Harriet!"

Lovely, talented and professional lady!
A huge thank you to the amazing Harriet! Not only did she learn a specific song for us (and nailed it), she also WOW'd all of our guests when she played the harp. Lovely, talented and professional lady! Highly recommended.

What is your most memorable wedding?

A DIY Tipi wedding in Lincolnshire for my friends H&J. They had done virtually everything themselves and there were personal touches everywhere. They particularly wanted "The Rains of Castemere" played during their Drinks Reception which went down very well!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, approachable, fun, professional, adaptable

What about your business are you most proud of?

My communication with my clients. I consider myself privilege to have been booked for their wedding and, as such, treat them like a friend, not just a client.

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

Do everything early!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Photos of the bride and groom's parents, grandparents & even great-grandparents

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once an enquiry has been made, we will schedule a phone call together. We will chat about their wedding, how planning is going and how we can work together. Once the phone call is finished, I will email over a bespoke quote. If this has been accepted, I take a deposit and enter all the details into a contract. From there on we're all sorted! The couple can be in touch as many times as they like and also book in a music consultation nearer the time of their wedding.
