Heavenly harp music built around the joys of our lives………………
The harp’s romantic elegance melodically fills the air for your special day, your wedding. What better way to create the perfect atmosphere for your guests on this most memorable day of your life together. The traditional wedding begins with a prelude or more specifically, the background music as your guests are being seated.
The processional music accompanies the wedding party down the aisle. The harpist then plays a harp fanfare to ornament the bride’s entrance. During the ceremony the focus is on the couple. Sometimes there is no music during the actual ceremony. However, candle lighting is an appropriate place to play a short piece. The recessional signals the finale of the ceremony. A joyous piece will conclude this part of the day’s events. The postlude escorts the guests with another jubilant aria.
