  1. Harriet made the ceremony perfect

    Harriet made the ceremony perfect. Music was enchanting and guests loved the music whilst enjoying canapes outside Fort Henry. Thank you Harriet, such a talent.

  2. An amazingly talented harpist

    Harriet was absolutely sensational for our wedding day 🙂 She added so much to our day, we had requests that weren’t in her repertoire, there were no hesitations, she even sent us a clip of them once learnt! Harriet blew us away and made my aisle song so incredibly beautiful and played follow the yellow brick road as our exit song, as we skipped down our very own yellow brick road.

    The reception drinks flowed as more beautiful song were played, if you are looking for an amazingly talented harpist then look no further!

    Thank you so much for making our day so special, love the Montagues xx

  3. Your playing was beautiful

    Hi Harriet,
    I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for Friday. It went in a blur as everyone told me it would but I had no idea how much. Your playing was beautiful and I am sorry I didn’t get chance to speak to you. Thank you so much.

  4. A delight

    Harriet was a delight, she felt like part of the family x

  5. I can't thank you enough

    Just wanted to pop you an email to say thank you so so much for Friday, I can’t thank you enough for how great it was.

    Everyone has complimented how amazing the music was and that you are incredible at what you do.
    They were all amazed at the array of music too, especially The Godfather.

  6. A lovely relaxed atmosphere

    Thank you so much for playing so beautifully at our wedding. I had a bit of an unusual request for Harriet… I desperately wanted to walk out to Hedwigs Theme for my wedding that included subtle pieces of Harry Potter. Harriet set to the task and it made the ceremony perfect 💕 Harriet created a lovely relaxed atmosphere for the drinks reception and ceremony. Would absolutely recommend and can’t wait to see her play again.

  7. Something I will always remember

    Harriet played at our wedding ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast, it sounded amazing the music she played was lovely , all our guests really enjoyed it too , I particularly loved walking down the aisle to a million dreams ,Something I will always remember. thanks Harriet for making our day that extra bit special x

  8. Absolutely Fantastic

    You were absolutely fantastic, what a gorgeous instrument the harp is, and what a brilliant player you are! We couldn’t have picked anyone better to provide the soundtrack for our day, and all our guests are still talking about you too!

  9. Thank you so much

    From the moment I heard Harriet play I knew she would be a wonderful addition to our wedding. It has been a pleasure working with her in the build up to our big day and she was fantastic when we had to postpone our date. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the harp sounded and how she was a delight to talk to.

    Thank you so so much for being apart of our day

  10. The music was breathtaking

    Harriet is so talented and an absolute joy. She communicated well throughout the wedding planning process and learnt 3 new songs for our ceremony. The music on the day was breathtaking. We were all blown away by the beautiful atmosphere created by her music in particular her version of Bastille’s ‘can’t fight this feeling’ which I walked down the aisle to. Harriet’s harp playing gave our wedding day an additional dimension and made it so much more special- we cannot thank her enough!

  11. Such a lovely addition to the day

    Harriet was so helpful with us having to push back our wedding so many times due to COVID. She had a huge selection of songs for us to choose from for our special day, and her performance on the day was such a beautiful touch. All of our guests said how lovely it was having a Harpist playing for our drinks reception, and it really did make such a lovely addition to the day.

  12. She made our day!

    Harriet played at our wedding and reception only a few weeks ago. Harriet was fantastic and played beautifully – many guests commenting on her fantastic performances! She guided us through picking songs, and always responded to emails promptly answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend Harriet to others and she certainly made our day.

  13. All our guests praised you

    Harriet, you are amazing at what you do, super talented. The songs we chose for you to play were all played beautifully and all our guests praised you on how wonderful you were and what a lovely touch it was to have you play at our ceremony.

    Thank you again so much!!

  14. Highly Recommended

    I would highly recommend Harriet to anyone planning a wedding. She plays beautifully and has a great repertoire, all of our guests loved her!

  15. Beautiful music

    Hi Harriet, thank you so much for playing at our wedding.  Even though we had to alter our guest list from over 80 to 30, we managed to have a wonderful wedding day made even more special by the harp bring played throughout our ceremony at Normanton Church.

    Our guests were very impressed by your beautiful music and it just added the finishing touches to what was a truly lovely day. Thanks so much!

  16. You did such a wonderful job!

    We can’t thank you enough for playing at our wedding. You did such a wonderful job and we can’t thank you enough. Given the circumstances we couldn’t be happier with the way the day went!

  17. It was perfect!

    Harriet played at my recent 30 person ‘covid wedding’ and she was just fantastic. I was so worried about my 100 person wedding dropping to 30, would the harp still fit in?! 100% and it made it SO much more special, everyone commented on her performance and I think will less going on and less people, everybody noticed her performance even more and let me tell you it was beautiful! Harriet learned a song on request for my walk out and it was perfect! Just how I imagined. Harriet is so talented and you will not regret booking her for a huge wedding or the new normal micro weddings!

  18. Sounded amazing!

    Didn’t get a chance to speak to you yesterday but you were absolutely brilliant. All of our songs sounded amazing and you received so many compliments from all our guests about how professional you were and how you kept them all entertained whilst they were waiting. We honestly can’t thank you enough. We had a perfect day and you really set the tone. Thank you so much

  19. She was incredible!

    So many people commented on how beautifully Harriet played the harp at our wedding – she was incredible! From our initial enquiry to the performance on the day, Harriet could not do enough for us. She was so lovely, professional and committed. We cannot thank Harriet enough for the outstanding service that we received… we now need to find an opportunity to use her services again! Highly recommend. Thank you for everything.

  20. Thank you so much!

    Well what can I say, I have always said I would like a harpist to play at my wedding and I’m so happy I chose Harriet to play at ours. She played so beautifully which made the day extra special for us. So many of our guests complimented on how amazing and lovely she was and the song choices were spot on. I know a few of our guest have now asked me for her contact details as they would love to have her play at their weddings. Myself and Matt would highly recommend her to anyone considering having a harpist play at their wedding. She was very professional from the start to the end. Easy to talk to and always quick to answer any questions we had. I felt confident we were in good hands. Thank you so much!

  21. The biggest thank you!

    I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for playing at our wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. So many guests were in awe of your talent, music and how mesmerising it was.

  22. Absolutely brilliant!

    Absolutely brilliant, you really made our ceremony and drinks reception special. We could not have asked for more, we would definitely book you again.
