Louise was so easy to communicate with and was punctual and added that magical touch to our wedding day. She even learnt new songs that I have requested to make it that much more personal. 100% recommend!

Louise was great, she really made our ceremony different. If we asked louise for a song she was more than happy to learn the song if she didn't know it. The music played was lovely all the guests enjoyed her. She arrived in plenty of time and was all set up ready in time to. She was dressed good to. Would definitely recommend louise to any wedding with her Harpist.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding ceremony. We were thrilled with the romantic atmosphere you created in the church; it was very special. So many guests have said how impressed they were with your beautiful playing and how it was one of the highlights of the day. I’m particularly grateful for all the effort you put into creating our vision and your ability to be the accompaniment to my sister’s solo and duet – you had all the guests in tears (in a good way!) Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without you.
