Absolutely wonderful! Everybody LOVED the magical sound of Celtic music. We couldn't have hoped for a more wonderful experience - both with the lovely Harpist and Warble Entertainment. The whole process was so easy and everyone was so delightful to email/speak to. Top marks!! Will definitely use you again in the future.

With regards to my feedback for the harpist, I can honestly say that the day would not have been complete without her presence. I just can't thank you enough for all your help & kindness from beginning to end. Upon listening to the Classic and Contemporary Harpist; elegant & refined, a delicate touch that produced such exquisite sounds that will undoubtedly resonate with you on the day & remain with you thereafter, as it did with us - thank you. A truly, truly gifted & talented Harpist that has perfected her craft. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending & booking again.
