Q - We’re thinking of booking a harpist, but we’re a bit worried about booking someone online that we’ve never met. Do you have any suggestions?
"Booking someone online can be a daunting prospect, especially for your big day. Sometimes dashing down to a wedding fair to see a harpist isn’t really an option with our busy schedules. Most professionals will have a website where you can get a good feel for what they offer.
"I always try and talk to my couples before the wedding through different platforms like Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or even over the phone. It’s a great way to see if you get along and if they’re a good fit for your day.
"When I talk to a couple for the first time, I send a list of what I currently play and ask them to send some of their own ideas so that I can tailor the music to suit their tastes. The harp is a rich-sounding and dramatic-looking instrument, so just remember the effects may be lost slightly in a weblink but will sound amazing live.
"I love speaking to all my couples and being a part of their special day, so don’t be afraid to get in touch."
