Celebrant & Harpist
Imagine the soft strains of a harp gently floating on the breeze as you’re walking down the aisle. The harp can really add an extra touch to your wedding ceremony. I love playing the harp both as guests arrive, for the bridal procession, and at the conclusion of the ceremony as the happy couple is being congratulated.
Harps have long been associated with weddings. The romantic tones add a very beautiful dimension to the service. Often I lightly tinkle the strings for the “Kiss”! My instrument is a small Celtic Harp so it is portable allowing me to take it wherever I go. There is a phone plugin to my Sound System so all music options covered. You are welcome to hire whichever musicians work for you. Harp is a totally optional extra.
Harp Weddings - The Celtic Connection
In ancient Celtic times the keeper of the clans' stories was Celtic Harpist. An aural historian so to speak of Birth Deaths and Marriages. As my heritage is Scots- Irish I offer harp within my ceremonies. I feel this is a moment of living history.
Scots, Irish, Welsh traditions like Handfasting and Celtic Blessings are welcome. Other rituals include warming of the rings, where the rings are handed around the gathering and wished upon, I play harp when that happens. Also a Sword ceremony can add a and romantic touch. There is even a stone ritual. Then conclude the ceremony drinking from the Quaich. I can explain all these options in full at our first interview. Finally, you choose what suits you and we can create a Celtic Wedding together.
Or simply choose the Harp as an elegant addition to your wedding.
Say hello by phone or email. Then we can meet up or stay in touch. If you choose to move forward with me as your celebrant. The next step is to sign a Notice of Intended Marriage. After that, we can start planning your ceremony.
I also conduct Weddings in the Illawarra, Kangaroo Valley, Wollongong Region. As far South as Nowra and as far North as Sydney. Take a look at my sister website
