Wedding Harpist - Harp music for weddings, civil ceremonies, and civil partnerships

There's something really special about live music at a wedding, particularly harp music. It can provide an elegant background mood, but it's also vibrant enough to grab everyone's attention and announce the bride's arrival.

Or the groom's arrival. I provide the music for civil partnerships, civil ceremonies and humanist weddings as well as traditional church services.

My harp will go pretty much anywhere. I've played at a whole array of wedding venues - castles and stately homes, pubs and village halls, marquees - even on board a ship! I can travel to anywhere around the Nelson area. Get in touch by email at for a chat about your wedding venue.

Wedding Music

What kind of music would you like at your wedding? It could be a traditional wedding march, classical wedding music or a song that's special to you as a couple.

If you're still deciding, I'm happy to suggest wedding music ideas. You get a free consultation with your booking so we can discuss your options and I can play through some music. It's a great way to make sure you're comfortable with how it will sound on the day.

If you like, I can make a custom arrangement. Have you ever heard Coldplay or Michael Bublé played on a harp? It sounds great, but don't take my word for it. Have a quick listen here. Or check out my repertoire list for some music suggestions.

And a singing harpist too...

I'm a trained singer as well as being a harpist. Voice and harp is an unbeatable combination and it works beautifully at a wedding, either at a special point in your ceremony, or as background music during the reception.

If you want a special love song, pop classic, an oldie or something from the movies I can make a bespoke arrangement to perform on your wedding day.

I can play for...

The standard civil wedding ceremony, which includes:

The drinks reception, to enhance the atmosphere while you and your guests have photographs taken.

The wedding breakfast, providing background music for your first meal as a married couple.

Or any combination of the above!
