If recorded music just won’t cut it and you want something truly magical for you and your guests to remember, then you need a harpist at your wedding ceremony!
I mean, did you expect me to say anything else?!
But what does that mean? Well, here’s what you get from me if you book me for your ceremony…
Before the Ceremony starts I’ll play for 20-30 minutes depending on when your guests arrive. This sets the scene, gives the room an instant atmosphere and can help to settle some nerves!
Processional (ie Walking Down the Aisle) - this is your time to shine! Choose a piece that reflects how you want to come into your ceremony; is it triumphant and upbeat or more like a gliding swan? I definitely went for dramatic at my wedding and - WOW it was extraordinary!
Signing of the Register - this can take anything from 2-10 minutes depending on your photographer and how many photos you would like at this point. I suggest 2-3 songs for this time so that there’s plenty of music to fill the time.
TOP TIP: Ask your photographer to capture the details of your ceremony at this point as they’re legally not allowed to take photos of the real documents.
Recessional (ie Your first walk as a married couple!) - Upbeat is definitely the way to go here - set the tone for the rest of the day!
In addition to all of this, you’ll have magical memories of your wedding ceremony, accompanied by your favourite music on the most romantic of instruments - the harp.
