Beautiful Harp Music for Every Occasion

Wedding Harpist


Music is an important part of any event and Christa is highly experienced at helping you decide on all the details that are going to make your day extra special, working closely with you to put together a personalised programme that is just right for your occasion, including the creation of a medley of your most special songs for the signing of the register. Her repertoire is extensive and spans classical, folk, pop and original music. If there is a tune you love that isn’t on the list Christa is always willing to learn a request or two.

Christa is available as a harpist for any type of event including weddings, civil ceremonies, functions, corporate events, christenings, funerals, galas and dinners.  She performs either on a stunning French black and gold pedal harp made by Erard, or a hand made Ash, Welsh Harp by Teifi. The harp adds a beautiful aesthetic to any occasion and as an additional visual detail Christa wears a gown to match your colour scheme, whatever you’ve chosen.
