About Petra Clavier

Petra is a talented, professional harpsichordist, piano accompanist, and church organist based in Broadstairs.

Get in touch with Petra through the contact form above to book her for your wedding.

 

I have over a decade experience with playing for wedding ceremonies at churches, halls, for receptions or for wedding breakfasts. With a wide range of musical style from classical music going through pop tunes, love songs, light jazz standards and film music. I am here to help with the musical choices, suggest pieces especially if you are overwhelmed by amount of musical options or just be there for you and let you to be in charge of it all. If the venue doesn't have a piano, i can supply my own Yamaha keyboard or even a real harpsichord.

I think the music is a great part of any celebration and it is just so important during the wedding. I love making people happy so delivering their special music is an absolute joy for me. 

My aim is to make sure that the wedding couple is 100% satisfied with musical choice, that they can trust me and relax and enjoy their Wedding Day fully.
