The Cheshire Wedding Harpist was simply fantastic. We selected our music for the Wedding ceremony, then left the rest of the choices to her experience and we are so glad we did, many of our guests told how much they really enjoyed her performance. Highly recommend.

As the bride I was very nervous but once the music began I suddenly felt quite calm and collected. Quoting my new in-laws, The Cheshire Wedding Harpist played "beautifully" and was "absolutely fabulous". :) Thank you so much, the music made our whole experience magical.

We hired The Cheshire Wedding Harpist for our wedding. We wanted something to entertain our guests whilst we had our pictures taken, and I must say she entertained From start to finish. The variety of music she played was exceptional. Our guests could not praise her enough. She was very professional throughout and made everyone feel at ease. We highly recommend The Cheshire Wedding Harpist for any event, she was absolutely brilliant. Thank you.

The Cheshire Wedding Harpist added a wonderful touch to our wedding ceremony, she played as our guests arrived until after our ceremony. She was very easy to book through Warble and made contact with me at the expected time. She was very friendly and a pleasure to have playing at our ceremony. She was able to offer a wide range of musical choices from classic to modern and played these exceptionally well. I would recommend her to anyone.
