Wedding harpist for Kent, Surrey and Sussex

About Nicola Veal

Why not enhance your special day with beautiful, romantic harp music?

The harp can provide soothing music as part of civil or sacred wedding ceremony or provide background music for a drinks reception or wedding breakfast.

Unlike other forms of musical entertainment, the harp can be easily transported into any venue of your choosing from a small chapel to a large hotel suite. Before the ceremony, I will play quiet, calming music as your guests settle into their seats. I will then play for the entry of the bride, the signing of the register and the exit of the happy couple. After the ceremony, I will continue to play as your guests leave the building. As this is the focal point of your day, I am more than happy to discuss your precise musical requirements with you - whether you would like traditional wedding marches, or modern pop classics, your tastes can be provided for!

After your ceremony, I can entertain your guests through your drinks reception and wedding breakfast. The harp can be moved to any situation, including outside so that your guests can make the most of the music. The harp can also provide a focal point for your guests, whilst you are having your photos taken. I will play a mixture to suit all tastes and settings, classical harp music, popular classics arranged for the harp and modern pop hits.

Please see the music page for a sample list of my repertoire.

If you have any special requests, please do not hesitate to ask in advance.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Was lovely music and so relaxing was great for the hot day we had. We really enjoyed having you perform for our wedding breakfast. On our table we were playing the guessing game as to the songs you were playing was fun. Thank you again for playing. I know Mum emailed you to say thank you as we were away on honeymoon so we are just catching up with everything and just wanted to say thank you.

Just wanted to send you a quick note and say thank you very much for all you did for our wedding, we’re sorry we didn’t get to talk to you before you went.  We’ve had lots of people saying how lovely the music was (including several compliments on the piece from Final Fantasy).  It was absolutely brilliant and we’re so thankful to everyone that helped make our special day go smoothly.  There was nothing that could have gone better and we loved it! Thank you!
