Looking for the beautiful sound of the harp at your wedding or function and the personal touch to planning your music? This harpist will invite you to meet her if you wish, to discuss and hear music tailored specifically for your wedding day or function.

She is very experienced harpist, playing during marriage ceremonies and receptions, for formal and less formal functions as well as being in demand as an orchestral harpist and much sought-after teacher of harp.

In functions she plays music from a range of genres, from light classical music, folk songs, music from the shows and some contemporary songs arranged for the harp.  Based in West Sussex, she is available for bookings in the South East region.
