Having Jemima play her harp at my party was the best decision I made. She is an extremely talented harpist and helped make the evening so special. I had a lot of comments from my guests saying how amazing she was and they were very happy that she even let them make song requests. The music brightened up the room and created a wonderful atmosphere for the drinks. I would recommend to anyone having a party to have Jemima playing - she is brilliant! I only asked Jemima to play a week before the party and she was completely unfazed by this. She was very efficient and got back to all my questions very quickly. From start to finish it was a great experience.
