Please note:
Civil ceremonies may not contain pieces of religious music.
Church weddings pose no additional problems with respect to moving the harp between venues.

Drinks Reception
As well as the ceremony you may wish to have harp music during your drinks reception. On fair weather days this may be outdoors, with suitable safeguards against the weather this is not a problem.

She will continue playing usually with one short break until the speeches or if these are earlier, the coffees.
