Del and Nic, Aztec West hotel, Bristol

I just wanted to say that the harpist was excellent at my daughter's wedding!! I booked her for 6th September at the Tythe Barn in Tetbury and I can only say great things about her! She was on time, completely professional but friendly with everyone, smart and cheerful. Although it turned out to be a hot day (great for us), she didn't take a break and played all of the time. Numerous guests commented on how good she was, and what a wide range of music was played. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thank-you for helping to make my daughter's wedding such a huge success!

Judi Clements, , none (September, 2015)
