Verified profile

Resident harpist for The Old Vicarage Boutique Wedding Venue in Southwell, and recommended supplier for Stubton Hall, Hazel Gap Barn, Ye Olde Bell Hotel, Haarlem Mill and East Bridgford Hill. Louise is a highly professional yet friendly and approachable musician. As a wedding harpist I am often a close part of the ceremony, and often form a unique relationship with the bride and groom through discussion of musical tastes and ideas.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Absolutely - I've include all travel costs, including the transport of my harp, in the quotes.

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

If it is raining then I will need full cover or to perform indoors as my instrument is valuable and could be damaged.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, you can choose your music for your ceremony. For drinks receptions and during the meal it isn't usually necessary to pick every piece.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account sourcing and learning the music.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My musical and expressive playing as well as my wide and varied repertoire.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Stubton Hall, The Old Vicarage Boutique Wedding Venue, Hazel Gap Barn, Haarlem Mill, Nottingham Castle, Ye Olde Bell Hotel, Goosedale, Swancar Farm, Shottle Hall, Moorwood Moor, East Bridgford Hill, Kelham Hall, many other local churches and venues.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Catrin Finch, Ludovico Einaudi

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Opening of the Cathedral Gardens in Leicester, and I'm the resident harpist for the New Years' Eve Gala Ball, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nottingham.

I would highly recommend booking Louise for any event. She is extremely talented and I’m so pleased I found her and booked her to play at our wedding. She was very friendly, patient and helpful in our pre wedding meeting when we were choosing our music. All communication was prompt and informative, which really helped and made the booking process easy. Our guests were very impressed and enjoyed her music greatly like us. Would definitely love to hear her play again. Thank you Louise for making our day special xx

Thank you so much Louise for playing so beautifully at our wedding. The music was just gorgeous and we had so many lovely compliments from our guests too. It was classy and elegant and really was the finishing touch to the ceremony. We would (and have!) absolutely recommend Louise!
