Sarah played the music for our wedding mass last Friday and there are no word to express how fabulous she was. Nothing was to much when it came to requests and everyone raved about how unique having a harpist was as they’d never heard one at a wedding before. Would highly recommend sarah to anyone. Thank you again sarah we loved the music 💕

Sarah played the harp and sang at our wedding ceremony. The music was absolutely beautiful and we had so many compliments from guests. Sarah couldn't do enough to help us with recommendations of songs to pick. I highly recommend Sarah. Thank you so much
