The sound and vision of the harp provide a very special touch to any wedding. It calms the nerves prior to the ceremony, it entertains the guests during the drink reception and it also creates an elegant atmosphere during the wedding breakfast. Harp travels and in good weather conditions it can be played outside as well.
Freya is an experienced performer and available for bookings around Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. She has a broad range of repertoire from classical to jazz and pop music, but she also welcomes any special song requests from the bride and groom to make the day extra special for the happy couple.
