About Nicola Veal - Harpist

Nicola Veal has had a passion for music since the age of four, where she began her musical journey by learning the piano, before falling in love with the harp. After gaining numerous qualifications, including performance certificates and a degree in Music, she begun working in the wedding industry over a decade ago. Now with years of experience behind her, she focusses her talents on providing beautiful music to accompany extra special wedding days.

Your Wedding Ceremony

Unlike other forms of musical entertainment, the harp can be transported into any wedding venue of your choosing from a small chapel to a large hotel suite. Before the wedding ceremony, Nicola will play quiet, calming music as your guests settle into their seats before providing music for the entry of the bridal party, the signing of the register and the exit of the happy couple.

After the ceremony, the music will continue as your guests leave the room for your wedding reception. As this is the focal point of your day, Nicola is more than happy to discuss your precise musical requirements with you – whether you would like traditional wedding marches, or modern pop classics, your tastes can be provided for as she is always happy to take special requests!

Wedding Receptions

After your wedding ceremony, Nicola can entertain your guests through your drinks reception and wedding breakfast. The harp can be moved outside so that your guests can make the most of the music and can also provide a focal point for your guests whilst you are having your photos taken. Nicola plays a mixture to suit all tastes and settings, classical harp music, popular classics arranged for the harp and modern pop hits. Please contact her to request sample lists of her repertoire, audio samples and videos.

As a wedding supplier, Nicola has been nationally recognised for her work within the wedding industry. In 2013 she was chosen as one of ‘Britain’s Ten Best Harpists’ by Bride Magazine, and in 2019 was shortlisted as the only acoustic musician in the Final of the ‘Best Musical Entertainment’ in the UK Wedding Awards.

    Absolutely Lovely

    Nicola played the Harp for our ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding in April 2019. The process of booking and arranging music was very simple. Nicola was always available to discuss what we wanted and even learned two new songs for us as we were really keen for those particular songs in our ceremony time.
    She seamlessly slipped into the background and created the perfect environment and was exactly what we wanted! The music was beautiful and she plays effortlessly. We are so glad that we chose Nicola for our wedding and would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone we speak to!

    Breathtaking!

    Nicola played at our wedding in August. She was easy to deal with and very accommodating with the song choices. We had so many comments from the guests saying how beautiful and special the music was. We had an outdoor ceremony and it really made our day. I can't recommend Nicola enough! Thank you so much xx

    Everything we wanted

    We got married at Coltsford Mill on a lovely sunny day. Nicola was just wonderful. The music was stunning, the harp is something else. She was friendly, polite, spoke to the guests when they got curious, couldnt have wished for anything more, thank you for making our day so special.
