Local harpist gives her top tips for booking wedding suppliers online Credit: www.christopherlewisphotography.comQ – My wife-to-be and I want to book our wedding entertainment but due to lockdown, we’ve been struggling to find the perfect supplier. How can we feel confident booking someone online that we’ve never met?

"Booking someone online can be quite a daunting prospect, especially for your big day. Unfortunately, meeting your musician in person is not an option at the moment. However, most professionals will have a website with recordings and videos that you can play to help you get a feel for if they’re the right person for you.

"If you’re thinking of booking, try and speak to the supplier in person rather than just through E-mail. There are so many different platforms available for this, including Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp.

"When a couple does book me for their big day, I send them a list of what I currently play and ask them to send over some of their ideas so that I can tailor the music to suit their tastes. Those of you thinking of booking a harpist, it’s a beautiful, rich sounding and dramatic looking instrument. The effect may be lost in a web link, however on the day, you cannot beat the sound of a live instrument.

"The main thing is to get in touch and start talking to your supplier. I love speaking to all my couples and seeing how I can be a part of their special day."
