Tina Reece - Harpist Feedback

It has been over one month since the harpist played at our civil partnership dinner. I can still hear her magical music in my mind today. She is remarkable, and her music was the icing on the cake for us. Every guest has commented on her unique style and talent. Her music brought tears to my eyes, and I had the best evening of my life. Without her classical harp music, the ambience would have been completely different. Many thanks and good luck for the future.

Bryan and Scott Walton-on-Thames,

Her beautiful sounds and ability to use the right music for the right time helped make our day magical. She was a talking point of the day and everyone commented on the beautiful sounds. She is herself a special person and we felt so lucky to have found someone so amazing to work with. Thank you - you are fantastic.

Serena & Paul, Richmond

It had been the loveliest ceremony that they had ever attended. Thank you for creating the perfect music that meant so much to us, our families and guests on our very special day!

Nicola & Paul, West Midlands

A huge thankyou for helping to make the day so special for us both

Lucy and Lincoln, North London

Your service was quick and efficiant, after speaking with you on the phone you managed to find what I wanted and for a very reasonable price! The harpist herself was fantastic. She made sure she kept contact with me and was such a lovely person to speak to on the phone. After she listened to the different styles of music that I wanted to incorporate into different parts of the day she offered suggestions that were very helpful. On the day she sounded exquisite, managing to change the style from classical to contemporary seemed like a breeze to her! Everyone at my wedding has made comments about various things that were happening on the day, one of the most commented about was about our harpist. On a personal note, she was a joy to listen to and watch, she really added something special to our day. For that we thank you very much for such a lovely no hassle, personal experience.

Mr and Mrs Head, (August, 2014)
