Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you able to move your harp from room to room?
A: In an ideal world I would move the harp as little as possible. The reality is that it is possible to move the harp quite substantial distances across various terrains using my pneumatic harp trolley, and going up and down steps isn't an issue as long as someone is able to help. Spiral staircases are a big no, and gravel isn't easy to wheel across.
Q: How much time do you need to set up?
A: I always arrive around 1 hour and 15 minutes before I am due to begin playing.
Q: Do you need a parking space?
A: Yes please, as close to the venue as possible! I am quite used to dropping the harp off at the entrance then going to park in the official car park at venues where this isn't possible however.
Q: Do you perform outdoors?
A: The harp sounds stunning outdoors, especially if there's a slight wind which can blow through the strings creating a fairy-tale sound of the harp playing itself. I bring a mat to outdoor gigs so that I can set the harp up on grass. If there is even the slightest drizzle of rain I will have to move indoors immediately, or under a substantial covered area where the harp stays completely dry, and if it is very hot I will set up in the shade.
Q: Do you use any amplification/electronics?
A: No, the harp is 100% acoustic and sounds as loud as a grand piano. For weddings where the number of guests is above 150 I can bring amplification, below this it is not necessary.
Q: Do you perform at LGBTQ+ weddings?
A: I married my husband Aaron a few years ago and we really appreciated how many wedding suppliers made it clear that they were supportive of LGBTQ+ weddings and I would therefore like to do the same for any prospective clients.
Q: Do you perform Bollywood music?
A: Yes! I have performed at a large number of Indian weddings and have fallen in love with many Bollywood songs, for example Tum Hi Ho, Kal Ho Na Ho, Sanam Re, Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai and many more.
Q: Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
A: Yes, up to £5 million.
