Looking for an exceptional wedding harpist? Imagine a wedding ceremony without music. Impossible, isn’t it? Live music is the emotional refinement that completes the day you’ve been dreaming of. With 30 years’ experience providing unforgettable music for weddings, the Yorkshire Harpist's repertoire is colourful and comprehensive and there’s something for everyone. Any special music that means the world to you? Requests are taken where it fits the style of the harp.
The Yorkshire Harpist's love story with the harp began at the tender age of five after seeing a harpist perform on television. Spellbound, she’d open doors and “play” them, pretending they were harps. After three years of constantly begging her parents, one Christmas, there it was. Her first harp. She never looked back. Her talent was affirmed with the attribution of numerous prizes and scholarships, and her passion for the harp took her on a musical voyage to France for intensive study, and to South Africa where she was principal harp with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.
Now based in West Yorkshire, she loves offering a personal musical touch to weddings and special events, as well as exploring her role as solo performer, chamber musician and pedagogue alongside her orchestral playing. Her warm, friendly personality and excellent communication skills mean she can actively engage with you to ensure that your wedding music will dazzle, delight, captivate and enthrall!
Light Classical, Jazz & Film Music
Absolutely thrilled with my decision to book The Yorkshire Harpist, she played beautifully and our guests loved our choice of music for the ceremony. The Yorkshire Harpist emailed me a few weeks prior to the wedding to ask what sort of music we enjoyed and she was so helpful in giving us choices that suited our theme and taste in music. Can't thank The Yorkshire Harpist enough for being part of our wonderful day, apologies for not saying thank you personally but the photographer had whisked us away before having chance to do so.

Can you play anything on the harp? Can I have a special request?
You can choose your ceremony music and she will always try to learn your special requests, although not everything works the harp. The Yorkshire Harpist plays a selection from her wedding music for your drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
How long is she there on the day?
The Yorkshire Harpist will be ready to play half an hour before your ceremony. She plays while your guests wait for your entrance, for the signing of the register, then for your exit as a couple. Drinks usually last an hour. For the wedding breakfast, she plays throughout your meal until coffees are served, before your speeches. If you are having speeches before your meal, please inform prior to the day.
