We wanted to extend our thanks for the excellent performance provided at our wedding, Ruby arrived promptly on time & there were absolutely no issues. Our families & friends were enchanted by her performance. Ruby was extremely flexible & accommodating as she turned up to our wedding later than originally booked & was able to perform inside & outside the venue. We were extremely happy with Ruby's performance & would recommend her to anyone who wishes to hire a wonderfully mesmerizing harpist. Many thanks again, J & Zena
