Frequently Asked Questions

What harp do you play?

For weddings, I use either a pedal harp (pictured above) or a smaller harp with levers, also known as clarsach. Generally speaking, modern repertoire works better on the pedal harp whilst clarsach is more suitable for traditional songs. However, the latter requires less space (see below) which makes it more suitable for smaller venues. If you expect many guests, I would advise to choose a pedal harp as the sound of the bigger instrument will carry better.

How much space does the harp need?

Pedal (concert) harp needs an area of 2m x 3m, lever harp requires about 2m x 2m.

Would you be able to play my favourite song on the harp?

I am always happy to add new pieces to my repertoire. Please let me know at least one month before the ceremony about any special requests to allow the time for me to purchase and learn the music.

Can you play outside?

Yes, providing there is suitable protection against sun and it is not too cold. I also need a flat, dry surface to position the harp on (not gravel or grass). Additional fees may apply.

How do you transport your harp?

For longer journeys, the harp travels in an estate car with back seats folded down. For short distances (for example from the car park to the venue) I move my instrument using a special trolley designed for moving the harps.

Can you move from one area to another during a wedding day?

Yes - please let me know in advance and allow enough time to move the harp. In most situations I am happy to do this on my own, however I may need help from staff at the venue if there are many stairs on the way and no lifts in the building. Additional charges may apply if I am required to drive to another venue.

How much do you charge for playing at a function?

This depends mainly on the location of the venue and of the duration of the performance, so if you could send these two pieces information to me in your enquiry I will be able to provide you with a quote. A minimum fee for any event is £200.

What do you wear when playing at weddings?

I usually wear a long elegant dress. Please let me know if you would like me to wear an outfit that matches your chosen colour scheme.

Don't you wish you played the flute?

No... but I wish I got a pound every time I'm asked this question! 😉

From my first contact with Zuzanna she was brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble and she spoke with us over the phone and through emails to advise us upon our options for song choices. She learnt two new songs that we requested and played them and the rest of her repertoire absolutely beautifully! All of our guests commented on how fabulous the music was. I can't recommend her highly enough for whatever event you are considering. A truly lovely person and a fantastically talented harp player.

Laurie and Michael

Thank you so much for playing last night at the anniversary dinner – everybody thought it was wonderful.

Sarah

We are all so pleased with the success of the party last night and felt that your wonderful playing was a highlight. It was such a delight to walk down the corridor and hear the clear and beautiful music wafting towards us and to see our Friends enraptured listening and watching you play. Thank you so very much for giving us the benefit of your beautiful harp and wonderful playing. Perhaps we may be able to hear you again in the future.
