What is your most memorable wedding?
Probably an intimate wedding for 10 guests at The Old Vicarage Hotel in Southwell. I played for the ceremony, reception drinks and during the meal and it was beautifully intimate and romantic - the harp fitted absolutely perfectly and the guests really enjoyed listening. It was definitely a magical moment.

What about your business are you most proud of?
I can arrange just about any piece of music for harp or piano, put my own unique stamp on it and make it sound beautiful. I'm also easy and flexible to work with and have an extremely professional attitude.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan and book your music well in advance if possible, and don't be afraid to talk about your musical interests, likes and dislikes as it helps to tailor the music to suit you and your guests and personalise your wedding or event.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I was asked to play the theme from 'Star Wars' for the bride's processional piece - it worked brilliantly for the bride's entrance and the guests loved it as well as the bride and groom!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After completing a straight forward booking procedure, I provide couples with a repertoire list and invite them to arrange an appointment to discuss and choose their ceremony music if required.
What makes a romantic first dance?
This is very personal and I have a varied repertoire list, however Ed Sheeran is pretty popular at the moment.
What is your number one floor-filler?
I don't have 'floor fillers' as such because harp music is usually more for background or a wedding ceremony, however popular favourites are often well-known pop songs or songs from the shows.
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
I would have loved to have played with the harp ensemble for 'Florence and the Machine' at the Brit Awards in 2010.
