Dear Angharad, Darren and I are away in Wales enjoying a 4 night break in a converted clifftop railway carriage! The weather is as you would expect in December but we are sat in front of a log burner with the sound of the waves outside reflecting on our day. We would like you to know how much we appreciated and enjoyed your beautiful music. So many of our guests have said how amazing it was and just lovely to be able to hear the music in the background whilst enjoying the meal and talking to other guests. They thought it was a fabulous idea. We are only sorry we didn’t get to thank you properly on the day but it went by so quickly and of course you don’t always do the things you planned to do. My Brother Mike said the next day “what a lovely lady and the music was amazing”. Thank you so very much Angharad for making our day all the more special. Jane and Darren xx'

Pauline (mother of the bride)

 

'Thank you so much for playing at our wedding back in September, we really loved the special touch that it brought to the ceremony. Thank you for taking the time to meet with us before the wedding day to help us in making the difficult choice of which songs to have played, and for being so accommodating with the somewhat unusual structure of our wedding ceremony. Your playing was absolutely beautiful.' Jenn

 

'Dear Angharad, Thank you very much for coming into school to introduce the harp to our children. The children and the staff all enjoyed your visit and learned so much about your different harps and how the pedals and the length and thickness of the strings alter the pitch. The children particularly liked the pieces of music which told a story and thought the cat snoring was very amusing! They also enjoyed singing accompanied by the harp. One child said, "I liked the harp. It was a new kind of music." The few children who had a chance to play the harp were definately the lucky ones. Thank you for giving the a new experuence of live, different music and for your excellent explanations about how the harp works. We hope that you will be able to come and play for us again in the future. With grateful thanks.' Christine, Rowanfield Infants School.

Our guests loved it and walking down the ailse to such beautiful music was something I'll never forget. I'm only sorry I didn't get to say hello properly and hear you play for longer. Jake loved the Star Wars tune too, he says it made him smile from ear to ear! We'll send over some pics when we get the official ones back and sorted through all the ones our family and friends have sent us, but just wanted to send you a quick email in the meantime with a few attached. We can't thank you enough for being such a special part of our day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you (and in fact already have!) Big hugs,' Sarah and Jake

Gina & Jonathan

 

'I've been meaning to get in touch since the wedding to thank you for being such a star and being so professional and flexible. You sounded fantastic, and my only complaint was that as the bride I didn't get to hear so much of you! Your playing received many complements and my mum in particular was thrilled to bits. I'll never forget the moment when I stood waiting outside the hall and heard you start to play the theme from Star Wars, and the whole room burst out laughing as I walked down the aisle.' Ingrid

 

'I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you so much for playing at my daughter’s wedding last Saturday. The music you played was beautiful and perfect for the afternoon.

'We weren’t considering having a harpist play at our wedding until we heard Angharad play at a wedding fair. From that moment on, we realised how special it would be to have her play during both the ceremony and drinks reception and we kept it a surprise from all of our guests. A couple of months before the wedding, we visited Angharad to discuss the play list; we were nearly in tears as she played such beautiful music with her harp. She helped us arrange the running order so that there was traditional music during the ceremony and modern songs during the drinks reception. We were also pleased that she offered to learn any songs she didn’t already know. On the day, all of our guests all said how beautiful it was to hear her play and I’ll never forget hearing Pachelbel’s Canon as my beautiful bride walked down the aisle. The only complaint was that Louise didn’t hear enough of you, but when we did it was magical. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.' Clark and Louise

 

'Thank you so much for helping to make our day magical, everybody kept commenting about how you made it extra special and you played beautifully. We are so pleased with the decision but we just wish we had booked you for the whole day!:) We honestly can't thank you enough!' Denise & Dominic

 

'We would both like to say a huge thank you for last week. The harp sounded beautiful and many guests commented how lovely it sounded especially in the Church. We did come to find you during the beginning of the meal to thank you but unfortunately we couldn't find you, but we did leave a note. We will be sure to recommend you to anyone we know. Jessica's nan and Auntie didn't want to leave the bar area when you were playing at the drink breakfast reception as they thought it sounded so beautiful. We are looking forward to hearing it all again when we get the dvd back from the videographer.' Graham

'Angharad played at our wedding in Bristol in 2012. Her knowledge, feel and technical mastery of her instrument embellished our day markedly and lent a very magical atmosphere to the occasion. Although we did ask for a couple of our favouite pieces to be played from her extensive and varied set-list we thought it best to let her choose the majority of the music on the day and this we feel was a wise choice as Angharad knows her instrument and it's heritage inside-out and her choice of music was perfect all day in tempo and humour. We did request a piece of music from Ireland which she learnt and mastered for the entrance of the bride on the day. Angharad is extremely professional in all regards and it was a great and singular pleasure to have had her play on our big-day. I cannot recommend her abilities and her approach to her work enough. She is quite exceptional and a complete joy to work with.' Ciaran and Niamh

 

'A very big thank you for the beautiful music you played at our wedding celebrations last week at Llansantffraed Court. We were very touched by the piece you played with our niece. We really had a fantastic day.' Keith and Gill

 

'We absolutely loved you playing on our special day...!!!! As you know, I had booked you as a surprise for everyone especially the groom. We have had so many of our family and friends ask where we found you as they thought you were fantatstic. When we were stood outside the courtyard having ohotos the beautiful sound of your music poured out making it so atmospheric. I shall never forget my husband turning to me during the wedding breakfast and emotionally saying... "she is playing our song!!!" Thankyou so very much for learning some of our favourite contemporary songs to add to your playlist. It was so personal to us both, so special. The sound of Elbow floating from the harp strings truely worked. The mixture of classical & popular music appealed to everyone. For us.... You playing enhanced the day and made it truely magical. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to have you play for them...!!!! We had a number of musicians at our wedding who were most impressed not only by your playing but of your professional ability to set up in two locations during the afternoon causing no disruption to the wedding party..... We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so memorable.' Janice & Phil

'Just a short note to express our appreciation of your playing at Emily and Mark's wedding. Many people expressed their pleasure at your music and we were especially grateful that you incuded Amazing Grace which has personal significance. We have been asked if you have recorded a CD - if not perhaps you will! Many thanks again - it added greatly to the enjoyment of the day.' Patricia and John.

 

'Our conference dinner in the Marble Hall was a special occasion all the more memorable for the excellent playing of the harpist, Angharad James. The repertoire was full, varied and recognisable to all, setting just the right tone for our evening. I hope Angharad enjoyed playing in the Marble Hall as much as we did listening to her. We wish her all the very best and we will engage her again when we come back to Cardiff' Gail, Conference Organiser, London
