The Cornish Harpist - Harpist Feedback

Having already seen this performer play the harp in a number of concerts and performances in Newcastle, Lancaster and the Lake District, we couldn't believe our luck when she offered to play at our wedding in the South of France. We cannot recommend her highly enough, she is very professional and a delight to have around. All of our guests commented on her wonderful playing. Her music created a heavenly atmosphere in the 13th century chapel that we were married in, and also afterwards for the reception drinks in a nearby chateau. I still get butterflies when I think about how beautiful she made Handel's Passacallia sound while I was walking down the aisle. She also adapted some of our favourite songs to play while we were signing the register which made it really personal. We felt truly blessed to have such an accomplished harpist and such a beautiful person playing at our wedding and she made the day even more special.

Very many thanks for playing so beautifully, looking so elegant and being such a lovely presence at the wedding. Everyone really appreciated having you there and your wonderful music. We all thought you were too good to only be in the background!


John and I just wanted to thank you very much for your lovely harp playing at Helen and Richard's wedding just over a week ago. A lot of the guests commented on your beautiful playing and the music you chose was just right for the occasion.

Celia and John Coles,
