The South East Harpist endeavours to play music to suit all tastes, from classical and traditional to oldtime favourites, songs from films and shows and more recent pop hits.
The harp adds the ultimate romantic touch to a wedding, and couples are delighted when The South East Harpist is able to play their 'special tune', as it gives an extra personal dimension to their wedding day.
The South East Harpist started harp lessons at the age of fourteen with Surrey-based harpist Susannah Shucksmith. She then continued her musical training under Sidonie Goossens OBE and finished her studies with Sussex harpist Helen Arnold.
The harp she plays today is a magnificent Gold Concert Harp. The South East Harpist also has an antique gold harp made by Thomas Dodd in London around 1820. This beautifully carved and guilded harp is ideal for smaller venues.

Thanks for your best wishes. The South East Harpist was fab. We have thanked her but will obviously do so formally when we get back to England. Once again thank you for your help.
We were extremely happy with The South East Harpist's beautiful performances of harp music. It made our wedding feel very magical and romantic and added such a wonderful element to our ceremony. She played beautifully at our drinks reception and made it such a classically romantic experience. Our wedding would not have been as wonderful as it was without her music. We are very pleased with your service and would definitely recommend you to family and friends, and would certainly use you again. Thank you.
Apologies for not replying sooner but I have been snowed under since our return from our honeymoon. Thank you for all your help with organising The South East Harpist to play at our wedding. We were very happy with your service and The South East Harpist was very good and could not have been more helpful and flexible. We are so pleased we had a harpist as it really did make a difference. I have attached a photo the photographer took of The South East Harpist if you could be so kind as to pass it on. I am looking forward to the next party and will certainly consider your services. Thanks once again.
The South East Harpist provided the most perfect musical entertainment at my daughters' wedding.She played all the tunes requested to a very high standard and it was delightful to catch the melodious sound of an old favourite that evoked happy memories for us all present. She was prompt and discrete on arrival and remained quietly in place whilst the speeches were said. The "icing on the cake" was that her beautiful dress matched our peacock themed wedding perfectly! I would highly recommend The South East Harpist to anyone as her selection was far more varied than any other I sampled. Thank you, Julie Milne
