Hi Nicola, we are just about to leave the country but i wanted to thank you so much for playing at our wedding. I didn't get a chance to say goodbye it was all very overwhelming! The music created such a lovely atmosphere lots of people commented how lovely it was to have a harp. I am so pleased we chose you!

We just wanted to send an email to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for playing at our wedding, you were amazing and everyone has commented how friendly and bubbly you were and that you played the harp beautifully. I don’t know if you noticed but I was a little late coming out after the bridesmaids and that was because I heard you playing "All I Ask" and it set me off so i had to pull myself together before coming out! Beautifully played!!
Thank you again Nicola and we will definitely recommend you to friends and family.
