Really great performance at our wedding

5 stars - Cecile Harpist are Highly Recommended
booked Cecile Harpist for their Wedding in Berkshire

“Cecile was brilliant throughout. She was very friendly and responsive prior to the wedding, gave us a great list of songs and helped us pick the best possible playlist. She set up without me having to provide on the day guidance (which as a stressed groom was helpful) and played beautifully as we expected. We would definitely recommend.”
