    Nicola is a MUST have! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Nicola is incredibly talented and we feel so lucky that she was a part of our day. We met Nicola at a wedding showcase at our venue and quickly found her to be firstly as mentioned very talented, but also friendly and professional. She navigated us through our postponement due to covid and regularly kept in touch. We had so many compliments about her on the day and after. Thank you so much!

    Perfection!

    Firstly I want to say I’m so so sorry I missed you on Thursday except for a frantic wave - It was a whirlwind.

    Secondly, thank you so much for the beautiful music and for learning my new song. We had so many compliments and it was absolutely perfect. Thank you also for being a pleasure in the run-up to the wedding and being so flexible with the postponements, everything went so smoothly in the end!

    Thank you
    Robyn and Steven

    Nicola Veal - Harpist's reply:

    Dear Mr and Mrs W,
    Thank you both so much for taking the time to write this review - it was a delightful surprise! It was such a wonderful day to be part of, thank you ever so much for asking me - and I so enjoyed learning the Coldplay, I am so pleased it sounded how you imagined.
    So many best wishes to you both,
    Nicola x

    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.

    Wow! Absolutely perfect for our special day

    Nicola played beautifully at our wedding back in Feb 18 at Cooling Castle Barn. It was simply amazing and all our guests were talking about how lovely it helped make our service. Nicola was fabulous to deal with throughout our communication with her and was more than happy for us to take the lead in what we wanted to make it our day. Highly recommend. THANK YOU NICOLA!

    Extraordinarily brilliant

    We met Nicola at the Epsom wedding show. We spoke with her and she played a song that was special to us at that very moments notice. We had already seen a few harpist but knew in that instant she was THE one. We conversed via email and Facebook messenger and she made the booking and planning process to easy. She even learned a completely new song especially for our wedding.
    On the wedding day itself she arrived and set herself up in plenty of time and played away whilst guests arrived. My walk down the aisle felt magical with her superbly playing our song. As we done our first walk as a newly married couple we had her play the aforementioned song that she learned for us, this happened to be the Pokemon theme tune as we wanted a little humour and personality in our wedding. She played so well especially considering she barely had any time to learn it!
    As we went outside for photos etc she was still playing away in the background which was simply beautiful. Lovely sun shinning and the soothing tones of a professional and master of her art.
    At dinner she provided music. It was softly in the background and didn't disturb conversation at all.
    Through the whole day she provided a service far above and beyond expectation. Our guests were talking about how wonderful she was for weeks afterward. She wore an outfit that not only looked glamourous and beautiful but it truly fitted with a wedding.
    So to cap this off I would absolutely recommend Nicola for your wedding, you will not be disappointed. You get such good service and pre wedding attention from her that it feels like your good friend is playing for you, with with Philharmonic orchestra quality.

    October Wedding

    Nicola is a wonderfully talented lady who played beautifully at our wedding last month. From the ceremony, to the wedding breakfast and keeping our guests entertained whilst we were having our photos taken.... All of our guests commented saying how amazed they were at what she could play and how she helped create a special atmosphere. She was able to play something for everyone. We would definitely recommend her services.
    Thank you again Nicola!

    Magical Summer Wedding

    We cannot thank Nicola enough for her beautiful music she played at our outdoor Summer wedding at Powdermills. I had always envisaged having a Harpist play at my wedding even as a small girl, walking down the aisle to P and Nicola helped that dream come true ?? !! Nicola was so friendly and professional from first meeting her until saying our goodbyes, and all our guests commented on how beautiful she played. Thank you so much Nicola for what was a truly magical day, kind Regards The Coden's x

    A disney dream....

    Nicola played for our recent wedding in September at Lympne Castle and was absolutely fantastic! From the moment I first contacted Nicola she was so helpful and friendly and really accommodating to our needs. My husband and I had some really special Disney tunes we wanted playing which weren't the classic normal ones and Nicola was happy to learn these for us and did such a fantastic job on them, it made our day extra special! Nicola stayed with us throughout the reception drinks and so many of our guests have said how great she was and how friendly she was too! Thank you Nicola for making our day so special, you were absolutely fantastic at performing and brilliant at being super quick to get back to us and always positive! I am so thankful and I will never forget my walk down the aisle to the harp! Magical.

    Nicola Veal - Harpist's reply:

    Dear Mrs Blackburn,
    Thank you ever so much for your kind words. I am so, so pleased that all of your requests you enjoyed. I must admit, I really enjoyed arranging them for you, playing some newer Disney music for your fabulous Castle wedding. I hope that married life has started well.
    Best wishes,
    Nicola
