Harp Weddings

“We have had numerous comments from our guests to say how much they enjoyed the flute and harp duo at our wedding”

(Emma & Adam Dear)

“Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special”
(Selaine & Darran Messem)

The Flute’s beautiful sound makes it the perfect instrument to enhance your special day. The flute is popular for weddings giving it the great advantage of a wealth of wedding music for flute to choose from, examples are given at the bottom of this page.

The Flute works for a range of venue sizes from intimate civil ceremonies to larger church weddings and adds a particularly beautiful touch to the ceremony’s music. The flute’s versatility means that it can be used just about anywhere during a wedding ceremony.

Rachel plays regularly for weddings and events in many venues and hotels across London and the UK, including the Savoy, Hilton, Grosvenor, Dorchester and St James’ Palace. She has also played for royal functions at Buckingham Palace, and for diverse religious and civil weddings and partnerships.


Ensembles

If you desire instrumental combinations other than solo flute then Rachel regularly performs at weddings in a range of ensembles including the following:


Camellia Flute and Harp Duo

Camellia weddings

A favourite combination is the flute and harp duo as the instruments look and sound beautiful together and help to create a unique atmosphere for each celebration. We can provide music for any part of your special day including before and during the ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Rachel’s flute and harp music ranges across classical, celtic, folk, jazz and pop. It is usually no problem to find specific music for requests and arrange something especially.

The soaring tones of two flutes together is another popular combination for weddings and the extensive and varied repertoire makes it ideal for the ceremony, drinks and as background music to accompany the wedding breakfast.

Hilser Quartet

The Hilser Quartet is an ideal ensemble for your wedding, whatever your venue. They have a vast repertoire of classical and more popular music.
