Lovely background music that set the atmosphere... We would definitely recommend...

5 stars - Melissa (Harpist) are Highly Recommended booked Melissa for their Wedding in Hertfordshire

“We had booked Melissa from 4.30pm to midnight, so she was playing for many hours. She was there on time, she looked stunning and was very smiley, but most of all she played beautiful harp music for the whole of our wedding party. We had asked if she could play a Danish piece of music during the ceremony. We sent her a YouTube clip, and she played it perfectly on the day. One of our guest also had a very special request for a Danish piece of music during the evening, and she also managed to play that without knowing it beforehand. We have had many comments from our guests who all very much enjoyed the music. It was lovely background music that set the atmosphere without being too loud so that guests couldn't speak to each other. We would definitely recommend her to anyone.”


Melissa was everything we had hoped for on our special day.
