FAQs about hiring Wedding Harpists in Canterbury

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Is a harpist at a wedding reception worth it?

Harpists can be a great addition to any wedding reception, especially for couples who are looking for a warm, intimate feel. Although known for classical music, our harpists have surprisingly wide repertoires and can cover your favourite modern songs. Most importantly, they provide elegant background music for conversation and mingling, ensuring your guests can enjoy each other's company without being overwhelmed by loud music.

Does a harpist play in the background of the ceremony

Harpists are a popular choice for wedding ceremonies due to their romantic, gentle sound. The harp's volume is typically softer than a band or DJ, making it ideal for a ceremony where loud music might be disruptive to the vows and speeches. Whether you desire calming prelude music, a graceful processional piece, or a celebratory recessional tune, a harpist can provide it all.

How many people have a harpist at wedding?

Harp players are very popular for weddings. While there’s no national data, our internal data shows that harpists were the third most popular option for wedding ceremonies in 2023.

What are some good wedding songs for harpists?

Harpists offer a beautiful and versatile option for wedding music, able to play a wide range of genres and create a romantic atmosphere. Here are some popular wedding song choices that work well on the harp: - Canon in D by Pachelbel - Bridal Chorus by Wagner - A Thousand Years by Christina Perri - Air on the G String by Bach - Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen - The Wedding Processional (from The Princess Bride) - Claire de Lune by Claude Debussy - Riptide by Vance Joy
