What People Say:

"It was an extremely hot day and Alice kindly agreed to play in the garden of the venue during the pfficial photos and then move inside to play the guests into the main room for the wedding breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble - excellent."
Jean Woodger - son's wedding reception - Surrey - October 2011

"Alice played at our official office opening and we received a great number of comments from people saying what a novel and lovely idea it was to have a harpist. Alice was extremely professional and was lovely to deal with. Thank you."
