  1. I play folk harp, & am often asked to play for weddings. Sometimes brides want 'traditional' music, but often not, with the harp!
    Pachelbel Canon in D is very popular for entrances. My daughter had the theme from 'Friends' for the entrance of the attendants, & 'When You say Nothing At All' for her own. For children, I often do a medley with 'After the Garden's been Planted' (original by harpist Sharon Thormahlen) & English Country Garden.'

    “My Life' & 'All you need is love' from the Beetles are others I've done, & 'The Rose' is nice for candle lightings or other bits in the middle. I generally suggest a few options for my brides, & am willing to learn one new song for a wedding, at no extra cost.
    It's always delightful to play for someone's special day!
