She has built up a repertoire of music that work perfectly for weddings in order to set the right note, so you can rest easy if you don’t have any particular requests and just want to be safe in the knowledge that live harp will be playing at your event creating the perfect ambience. She has over 15 years of experience playing at weddings events, playing all over the world and bringing her music to the USA, Australia and Europe.

With her plans this year changing, she now has many Saturday’s free for the 2024 wedding season and therefore has included a “last minute” booking discount of a third off all her bookings!

Siannie played the clarsach for our wedding in September 2023 and was absolutely exceptional. She is a delightful person and learnt three slightly unusual pieces for our ceremony which required bespoke arrangements. Our venue was an old collegiate church, and she transformed the atmosphere into a truly magical space. Her playing is excellent, she is professional and lovely, and is overall just fantastic. If you are thinking about booking her - do it!

Siannie was a fantastic addition to the evening entertainment at our wedding. She called out ceilidh instructions alongside our DJ playing music, and was very patient with our clueless friends. Lovely person too. Highly recommend!

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

I understand that events, such as weddings, do not always run on time and so I always try my best to be as flexible as possible to help your event run smoothly. If timings change, please do let me know as soon as you can. If timings change on the day, I will be as flexible as I can.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can do this, however it is not usually necessary to have a longer break. Let me know if you have any queries about this!

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually need half an hour to set up before the performance time, and will let you know if I will require longer.

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

Yes, I hope you find music that you are happy with within in my set list and I also take requests. If you prefer, I am experienced in picking the correct music for the atmosphere and have learnt over time what works during an occasion.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring all my own equipment apart from a chair - a standard chair is fine :)

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes absolutely! I can learn up to two requests, and for any extra there is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account extra rehearsal times etc.
