    Hi



    Thank you, we have been told of one view the church but hear all the other music bar harpist lol, and so picky would like to hear demo etc ha ha.



    The church is amazing i love it.



    Have you decided on venues etc?



  • You've made me think now about music too, we've been told that the organist is inlcuded in the price but I'm not keen on organ music and it's such a small church I think it might be a bit much!!



    If I find anyone I'll let you know image



    Yes, we're having the reception at Elea Estate, it's stunning, have you picked a reception venue yet?

    If you struggle to find an actual harpist that you like, could you get a CD of harp songs played? xxx

    Just so you know, Lesley from Blue Jar is also a harpist, so if you contact her through the Blue Jar website, she will be able to help you

    Hi



    Yes Lesley was recommended by Helen to me @ St Pauls Pillar, which i have emailed last year but recently had no reply to ask about booking.



    As i couldnt find any examples of her playing the harp image

    hi there



    i must admit, i did find that Blue Jar didnt get back to me for quite a while..so i sent another and they did respond. I know that at one point last year lesley had a problem with her email as it had been hacked i think..cant quite remember but maybe try again hun x

    Hi, Does anyone know what kind of harp she plays? I'd love to have a harpist for my wedding too but I only found one who plays Celtic harp... (I really want a normal big harp!)
  • MrsCorbettMrsCorbett Posts: 677
    Hey



    She plays a folk harp which is same as the celtic harp if you google images them they are the large ones as same as i want lol.



    have you had joy finding one?

  • Hello,

    I've just found this message. I am a 23yr old professional singer/harpist based in Cardiff available for the date you mentioned. I am currently performing in various weddings and events weekly and am already nearly booked up for 2012. I'm not sure if you managed to find a harpist in the end, but if not please feel free to send me and email/text. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you,

    Iona Thomas
