Hi there

I am just writing to say how fantastic the harpist was at our wedding on 13th April at The Manor House hotel.
She was elegant, looked incredible and played all of the songs I requested.

She did exactly as we asked and more. She really made our day and all of the guests said how amazing she was – she even made my mum cry with one of her songs.

She was wonderful and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. A fantastic artist.

Many thanks, Jo


Just to say I've had emails from so many people, including the organist and curate from the church , saying how much they enjoyed your playing !!, it really made people feel happy and relaxed and if you remember that is just what Lauren and myself wanted !!!
Huge, huge thank you.
Very best wishes  Janine xx


Hi Mandy,

I wanted to let you know just how wonderful Kate Hartley was at our wedding on 27th July at Lainston House Hotel this year.

She played so beautifully and many people commented on her lovely choice of music. I'm so grateful to Kate for helping things to run so smoothly, it was lovely to have her as part of our beautiful day.

She was also wonderful in the build up to it all and made my life so easy! I organised the wedding myself and could never have realised how much there was to do! But Kate just made things simple for me, listened to what I wanted and gave me guidance and support.

There are always things a bride worries about on the big day, whether things will run smoothly etc but Kate was never even a tiny concern; I instinctively knew I could rely on her from our very first conversation.

So thank you, I cannot recommend Kate enough, she is a true asset to 1st choice entertainment.

Kind Regards, - Rachel Potts (was Tubb)
