Mr and Mrs D Sanderson

Event: Wedding
Location: South Yorkshire
5/5

Sophia was so easy and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We had so many compliments about her beautiful voice and harp playing – she even played an amazing version of our favourite song ‘Perfect’ (Ed Sheeran) and brought a tear to everyone’s eye. We couldn’t have wished for a more magical soundtrack to our wedding.

    FAQs

    Does she have Public Liability Insurance?
    Yes, Certificates can be supplied upon booking.

    Can you play anything on the harp? Can I have a special request?
    You can choose your ceremony music and I will always try to learn your special requests if there's time, although not everything works the harp. I play a selection from my wedding music for your drinks reception and wedding breakfast.

    Is there background music available in between your sets?
    Yes, as I mic up my vocal/harp, I can also play generic background music playlists through the speaker when not playing.

    How long is she there on the day?
    For your ceremony, I will be ready to play 15 - 20mins before your ceremony, to welcome your guests.  I play for your Processional, for the signing of the register, then for your Recessional, as a couple. For Reception Drinks, I play for an hour. For the wedding breakfast, I  play for 2 x 45mins, fitting in around speeches.

    What time will you arrive at the venue?
    1-1.5hrs before the booking is due to start. This gives me plenty of time to set up, tune up and change.

    Will you need refreshments?
    Just a glass of water or a coffee will normally do nicely, but you don't need to worry about that, I'll ask the staff when I arrive. If the booking is a long one then a sandwich is really appreciated.

    Do you need to take a break?
    Yes, during a Reception, I would take a short break half way through.

    Do you play outside?
    I'm very happy to play outside as long as the weather is warm, dry and not windy, but it's always a good idea to arrange this beforehand so that we can look at an appropriate spot where shade is available.  The sun can damage my harp and, as I am amplified, the rain isn't a good idea either!  Venues usually have something to offer, e.g. a gazebo 

    Is the harp loud enough in larger venues?
    As I sing in a lot of my repertoire, I always mic up the harp and my voice which helps with larger rooms or bigger crowds.
