Thank you Harriet for your beautiful music
Right from when I first spoke to Harriet I knew she would make our wedding so special as she is so lovely and made an effort to know more about us and what we wanted our day to be like. The whole process from booking to picking our songs etc. was very easy for us and she was super organised and approachable. It was so magical hearing her play when we arrived at the venue and as soon as I heard her music I was emotional. Harriet played music before out ceremony, for the ceremony and also for our drinks reception, which set the tone for the day and everyone loved it. We were spoilt for choice when it came to picking songs from her repertoire and she even learnt a Bob Marley song for us, which we had chosen to remind us of our engagement in Jamaica, and one of my favourite memories of the day was walking down the aisle to A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman. Thank you Harriet for your beautiful music and for making our day extra memorable.

We can't thank you enough
Booking Harriet to play at our wedding was a great decision, the pre-wedding communication was comprehensive, warm and reassuring and the music on the day was beautiful. We can't thank you enough for making our ceremony so special.

One of the nicest suppliers we had to deal with
I am so pleased Harriet could play for us on our day. She was everything that we wanted and she made our day so special. I would recommend Harriet to anyone thinking of getting a harpist for any occasion. On the run up to the wedding Harriet kept me updated and checked in with me to ask if there was any changes. I had full confidence with Harriet as her communication was extremely good- which is definitely something you want when planning a wedding! Harriet has a wide range of music to pick and from many different genres. She is very talented and brings such an elegance with her. All of our guests enjoyed having Harriet play at our reception drinks. She really did hit the brief I was after for our wedding. Thank you so much Harriet, you really are incredible at what you do and one of the nicest suppliers we had to deal with.

We had so many comments on how great she was
Having Harriet play the harp at our wedding was something we were really looking forward to, and she did not disappoint! We had so many comments on how great she was and how recognisable all the songs were. Harriet was so easy to communicate with from the first enquiry up to a final check in before the wedding. Thank you so much, you really added an extra special touch to our wedding! Love Mr & Mrs Chapman x

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.
