Tell us a bit more about yourself
I play the harp for weddings, events and concerts. I also teach Harp, Flute and Piano
How did you get into this business?
I played for my first wedding when I was 16 and knew it was what I wanted to do!
What is your favourite wedding style/product that you provide?
I specialise in pop and film music including current chart songs and love the challenge of playing something that may never have been played on a harp before.
What is your favourite thing about working in the wedding industry?
Making people’s dreams come true! So many people who book me say they have always dreamed of having a harp at their wedding so it is amazing to be able to provide that for them.
What makes you different to the competition?
Probably the amount of pop and rock music I play. I never refuse a challenge!
What top tips would you give couples planning their being day?
Be true to yourselves. If you want the Star Wars theme as your bridal entry music who cares what great aunt Mabel thinks?!
What is your biggest business highlight?
Oh so many! I have played for presidents, royalty and a pro footballer. I have also played at some incredible alternative events from a Greek wedding for 500 people to an anniversary dinner for 9! I have played in all sorts of venues from stadiums to windmills and even on a boat. I love the variety in my work and the incredible people I meet.
Tell me more about the face(s) behind the brand
It’s just me! What I present is what you will get. I don’t believe in highly processed images and videos. I record my demos live and do not adjust them so my potential clients know exactly what they are getting. I am lively and bubbly and love what I do so I really hope that comes across!
