Based in Bristol, Marie-France travels all around the South West region to recreate the romantic and enchanting sounds of the harp at civil marriage and partnership ceremonies and evening receptions.

Soft, evocative, mystical and peaceful, the delicate rippled strumming of this graceful, majestic instrument will generate an elegant, dreamy atmosphere, conjuring up the perfect ambient backdrop for unforgettable celebrations.

Extremely talented and highly experienced, Marie-France has built up a vast repertoire drawn from various musical genres, from light jazz and classical pieces right through to modern-day popular love songs.

About

Having performed for over 40 years in some of the South West's most prestigious and exclusive venues, Marie really is one of the very best in her field.

As a demonstration of her truly personal service, each and every couple are offered a free consultation, at this meeting detailed timing and musical choices can be discussed with her.

There are many stages of your wedding day during which Marie could perform; for the arrival of your guests, accompanying the bridal procession, during the signing of the register, as background to the reception drinks or the wedding breakfast... and more!

Your detailed requirements for the day can all be discussed during the consultation and Marie can advise on where she thinks her services might be best suited.

Unless wedding parties are unusually large, the harp will require no amplification, meaning that Marie is able to perform effectively in a garden or gazebo if required.

The Music

Her mellow music is the perfect atmospheric accompaniment to you day. From modern chart music from 20th and 21st century intermixed with jazz and Latin, her music range is vast. She can also perform traditional Welsh, Scottish and Irish, choice of Concert harp or Celtic harp.

She can even perform the music from any of your favourite film or theatre shows and musicals. Song requests are welcome if they are suitable for the harp, alongside her own song arrangements. There are various options including a solo or duo with flute, violin or harmonica.
