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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

150£ for the church ceremony, which means playing before the mass starts for the arriving guests and during the wedding ceremony. The price can be negotiated.

What services do you offer?

I can play organ in the church or piano or I can provide background piano/harpsichord music during meal or reception.

What is included in the wedding package?

I am usually working on my own but very happy to discuss wedding package ideas and discounts with the couple.

How far in advance should I contact you?

With the repertoire requirements I would appreciate to know a month in advance to make sure I have all the music ready. I have managed to work in short notice too, but for your comfort I would think, longer notice is better. All depends on the repertoire. Of course little changes can be done in shorter time.

What style of music do you offer?

Quite a wide range from classical music (baroque to romantic), through pop and love songs, film and show music, dance and folk music to and light jazz repertoire.

Type of musical group:

It is usually only me, playing piano, organ or harpsichord but I can provide one or more of my talented colleagues. Singers or choir or musicians (cellist, violinist, flute player)...

Size of musical group:

Only me, but I can also bring another musician/singer with me if there’s a request.

Repertoire:

Wide range of music from classical music, to modern pop songs, film and show music, light jazz, dance and folk music, love songs.

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

Absolutely! I had this experience in past and it is always fun to try new repertoire.

Experience:

I have over a decade experience playing for weddings. Mostly at churches (organ, piano) but also at wedding reception and wedding breakfast (piano, harpsichord). Out of wedding world, I work as a cocktail pianist at hotels, playing classical music at concerts, in past I have participated on CD recording and recording music for period drama series on BBC and ITV.

Do you have your own equipment?

Yes, I can bring my own Yamaha keyboard if the venue doesn’t have a piano (for piano or organ sound) or even my own harpsichord.

Are you able to travel?

Absolutely. Being a musician means that I’m on roads very often. Only would require a parking space if I need to bring any musical instruments.

Is there a charge for travelling?

There would be a charge for bringing the instruments as for porterage, less for the travelling without my instruments.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Depending on the distance and times but for peace of mind I would rather play for one wedding a day

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work alone, so all requests and contact goes through me only, which makes things easier for you and it is pretty straight forward.

What is the length of time of the act?

Depends what I’m booked for. Usually Catholic church wedding is about an hour long, any other - as just blessing or civil wedding is slightly shorter. I usually play for guests arriving before the ceremony will start and during the service. Playing for reception or wedding breakfast depends upon a request.

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

Very much depending on the repertoire. If the music is difficult, I will need to practise and prepare longer than other pieces. But I have done all usual wedding music in past and I have many years of experience, so it all gets much easier

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Usually per event so there is no pressure when the time runs out or when the bride is running late... :)

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours

Sure, no problem to ask.

How do you charge for extra time?

Depending how long is an extra time, sometimes there is not need to charge, if we are not talking hours longer... it all could be arranged on the day, personally

What are the forms of payment?

Happy for any form, like online, or cheque or cash in hand.
