My eldest daughter Rhiannon was getting married in August 2007. I thought it would be really lovely if we could book a Harpist to bring an extra touch of class to the day. I was given Gwenllian's email address by a friend I worked with at the time, I was so glad she did. I had the great pleasure of booking Gwenllian and I have to say, we were extremely pleased. Not only is Gwenllian a lovely young lady with a very nice personality, the music Gwenllian played on the harp was absolutely gorgeous, so nice to have in the background of the reception. In November 2016 our youngest daughter Cerian was married and thankfully Gwenllian was available to play at the reception again for us. I have to say, Gwenllian playing the harp is not only beautiful with her arrangement of music, but she also brings class and elegance to round off an already lovely day. If we had a third child getting married, I would have no hesitation in booking Gwenllian to play for us again. I am in the position, having the honour of having Gwenllian play for the two of our daughters weddings, that I can highly recommend her for any special occasion.

Thank you so much for your beautiful playing at our wedding – it was so lovely to hear you playing whilst we were signing the register! We had so many guests say to us after the wedding that it was so cool to have you playing ‘Love’ from Robin Hood – who knew it was so popular! Thank you also for celebrating our big day with us – we had the most amazing day, it was more than we had wished for!
