IDEAS FOR WEDDING CEREMONY MUSIC

During the ceremony, harp music can be performed:

 

  • Prior to the ceremony while your guests enter and are seated.

  • During the processional music

  • During the signing of the register

  • As the married couple exit (recessional music)

 

Please note that I am happy to perform music you request, please see my Repertoire List for a wider selection. Please look at this page if you are interested in music during the drinks reception or wedding breakfast.
