COVID-19 Update
Please be assured I take every precaution to keep you, your guests and me safe. If your wedding plans have to change due to Covid-19, I won’t charge a cancellation fee and we can trust each other to be as flexible as possible when booking a new date. Covid-19 may still impact events in the coming years, so its extremely important that we all adhere strictly to Gov guidelines whatever they may be. Physical distance is perfect for my valuable instrument anyway!

Full Description
Live harp music for your ceremony, your drinks reception, your wedding breakfast or afternoon tea too! I arrange much of my music for the harp myself, so you'll hear favourite love songs, modern covers and so much more in a totally unique form! Please enjoy reading on, to realise how the harp can enhance your special day: Here is the format and some musical suggestions for a civil or church ceremony: As Guests Arrive:  Light classical pieces for harp by Parry, Debussy, Chopin, Handel, Bach. (around 15 mins for a civil OR 30mins for a church wedding) In church, the organist would play your hymns. Entrance of the Bride:   Canon in D by Pachelbel or Wedding March by Wagner (Here comes the Bride) are popular choices, as are Ode to Joy, by Beethoven or the Hornpipe by Handel (from the Water Music) Signing of the Register:  There is usually time for 2 songs here. Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet, or the Largo (from the Four Seasons) by Vivaldi are often chosen, or sometimes people choose favourite pop songs instead. Exit of the Happy Couple:  The Wedding March (from A Midsummer Night's Dream) by Mendelssohn or The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba are favourites too. If you like BOLLYWOOD SONGS, its lovely to mix them in with some traditional music, while signing the register perhaps. Favourites are Tere Liye, Tum Hi Ho &Hey Shona. DRINKS RECEPTION: My music is a lovely way to complement your drinks/canape reception. Guests love to "spot the song" & I love anticipating the songs they enjoy! Couples are also welcome to enjoy a photo opportunity with the harp Although I only play my instrument indoors, I can happily sit by open patio doors and use my amplifier if guests mingle indoors and out - depending on the layout of your venue WEDDING BREAKFAST / MEAL / AFTERNOON TEA: I can provide the perfect ambiance with my wide range of musical styles: Classical, Modern pop covers, Show & Disney tunes, Well known Oldies & Kids' songs too!

Meredith Makes Beautiful Music!
Meredith makes beautiful music ! She added breadth & depth to our wonderfully intimate civil wedding of my Sister and now Brother-in-law. Meredith and her harp only added to the atmosphere in the most melodic, gentle and surprisingly powerful manner. She has a great repertoire... The service was a blend of ‘modern & traditional’ and the harp fitted perfectly with all of this. Meredith herself is a straight-forward, accommodating, bubbly and energising personality. She’s a true Pro - in a non-stuffy, ‘experienced’, confidence-inspiring and intuitive sense. She’s also a great Talent that I have no hesitation in recommending…

A gorgeous mixed wedding
Meredith provided music for the ceremony and wedding breakfast for our small wedding in early 2020. Everyone loved the music and it added a really special touch to our day. Hearing Debussy's Arabesque on the harp during the register signing was a special moment for us and made it quite magical. Communication with Meredith beforehand was easy and professional and she was very receptive to our slightly eclectic music choices and went the extra mile to accommodate our requests. I would highly recommend booking Meredith for your next event.
