Music

Music for a wedding ceremony consists of:

  • 30 minute prelude while guests are seated.

  • Processional (walking down the aisle).

  • Music for religious ceremonies, as required (eg. Communion, candle lighting ceremony).

  • Music during the signing of the register.

  • Recessional (bride and groom leave together).

I can also play background music during cocktails or dinner.

Music Selection:

For music ideas, see my repertoire list and list of suggested wedding music.

Special requests for music may be accommodated, given enough time to learn new pieces. There is a limit of one new song request per event (additional new songs may be possible at a cost of $25 per song).

Venue Considerations

I must have access to the venue one hour before I am to begin playing so I have time to set up and tune.
Venues which are not wheelchair accessible, and venues which are outside the city of Winnipeg will incur extra charges.


Outdoor weddings: As of 2019, I will only be playing outdoor weddings on my carbon fibre lever harp, as pictured to the right (or below on mobile). This harp is perfect for the outdoors! It is made of carbon fibre material rather than wood, so it offers the following benefits:

  • It will not be damaged by light drizzle

  • Stays in tune better in the heat and humidity, and colder days such as in May or September

  • Very light and easy to carry across big bumpy fields, up stairs, or wherever you need me to play

  • If it is very windy, I can lay it down if I need to step away from it for a moment

  • Although I would still prefer to play in the shade, if it isn’t possible it won’t be damaged by direct sunlight.

In other words, it means more predictability for you when planning your event.
