Added a touch of magic to the wedding day

5 stars - Thomas (Harpist) are Highly Recommended booked Thomas for their Wedding in Essex June 2019

“Right from the start, dealing with Thomas was an absolute joy, He has an extensive repertoire list which made selecting the music for my friend's wedding fun and interesting, and brought about ideas that I wouldn't normally have thought of. He was polite, punctual, smart, practical ... and accompanied the wedding service and meal. Everyone in the party enjoyed hearing the harp, and the visual interest it also created. I would recommend Thomas in a heartbeat.”


Thanks so much, Thomas!
