Thank you for the wonderful atmosphere you created for us – you really did make it a magical occasion and a treasured memory! Tim, Wedding, Hertfordshire

She specialises in weddings and is available for the wedding ceremony (20 mins before the wedding, during signing of the register and as guests exit), the drinks reception or the wedding breakfast (see booking options below).

Emily gained a BMus (Hons) from the University of Birmingham whilst continuing her harp studies with Robert Johnston (principal harpist City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra). She has since performed concertos with regional orchestras and given numerous recitals, and has played for the CBSO, the Royal Shakespeare Company and is principal harpist for the New Bristol Sinfonia.

Emily regularly plays as part of a flute/harp duo with flautist Diane. As well as being Principal Flute of the Orchestra of the Swan, Birmingham Opera Company and Mid-Wales Opera ensemble, Diane is in much demand as a freelance orchestral player, performing with other leading orchestras including the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

“Emily provides a beautiful selection of harp music before and during our wedding ceremony and also afterwards at our drinks reception. It was absolutely perfect. She is a very talented lady and everyone commented on how lovely it was, especially my father and uncle.”

Rachel, Wedding, Berwick Lodge in Bristol, December 2019

“I was very happy with the service I received from your agency and delighted with the performance given by Emily. It was such a privilege to have such talented professionals playing for us and with such a wonderful programme. Thank you.”

Saranna, Private Party, Forge Cottage in Somerset, May 2019

“We would like to thank you for playing the harp so beautifully at the reception following our civil partnership ceremony on Saturday. We received so many wonderful compliments during the rest of the day; clearly everyone enjoyed your music and it will enable them to remember the day for a long time to come.”

Jeremy & Cham, Civil Ceremony, London, April 2019

“A total delight! With her music and the intensity of her concentration, in a wide range of music. Afterwards many of our guests praised her performance and asked about her. It follows that we would not hesitate to book her again or recommend her to others.”

Mr P.B, Private Party, London, July 2018

“I just wanted to say how happy we were with your performance. It was beautiful and was exactly what I wanted. If I could change anything it would be to walk a little slower down the aisle and take in the moment. Thank you and take care!”
