Harpist WM3 Sample Repertoire List

This list is compiled to help you to make your choices for the key points in your Wedding Ceremony: the entrance of the bridal party, the signing of the register and the exit of the bridal party. As the guests are being seated for the Ceremony, I usually play some relaxing classical music and for a Drinks Reception or Wedding Breakfast, I generally present an eclectic mix of styles as seems appropriate on the day, so that the music appeals to the varied tastes of the invited guests. I will take into account if you have a preferred style of music & you are welcome to specify up to five pieces of music from the following play list for particular inclusion during the Drinks Reception or Wedding Breakfast.

Special Requests can be catered for, where preferably two months’ notice is given allowing for researching suitability for harp transcription. However, as pop song material can often only be acquired via the internet and often only via American websites, there will be a minimum charge of £5 per song to cover purchase costs & bank exchange charges. More than two special requests may incur additional costs for time spent sourcing & preparation time.

For Outdoor Weddings Where conditions are not ideal or there is limited space, I may substitute the pedal harp with the lever harp. Pieces marked with an * can be played on both pedal and lever harps.
