Alice played the harp at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. We were delighted with her performance, and had lots of comments about how amazing and talented she was. She gave a gorgeous rendition of Nessun Dorma, and her playing and presence contributed to a lovely, personal service. -Karen

Alice’s harp music gave just the right amount of atmosphere to our St.Andrew’s Day dinner. Her performance was outstanding and she worked hard throughout the evening to entertain us.
