    Thanks very much for being there on our day- we really enjoyed having the harp music playing in the background during the wedding breakfast. A lot of our guests commented on how original and unique it was afterwards. It was a lovely addition to our wedding and one of the best decisions we made in terms of adding to the magic of the day. I will recommend you to friends for future! With love and thanks

    "We were so thrilled that we choose Ruby for our music entertainment on our wedding day. Having such a wide mix of people there, and all sorts of tastes, choosing the right option took a while. From party goers to classical lovers - I was a typical bride, wanting to please everyone! I was so happy that everyone commented on how amazing they thought she was. Her music was such a complement to the day and massively contributed to the amazing atmosphere we had.

    Ruby played during our Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast and it was just so perfect and full of emotion. I was very nervous before walking down the aisle but hearing the harp play, those beautiful soft notes... it made my heart melt and I knew everything was falling into place. I felt like a true princess, a moment I will never forget. Ruby was everything I wanted and more- she was always on hand to offer advice and ensured I picked the best options. I would recommend Ruby to anyone in a heartbeat."

    Ruby played at my wedding in May 2011, so when my brother was organising his wedding reception in 2013, I felt that Ruby would be a great addition to the evening. Ruby played Bollywood Harp and Classical Harp Music during the Drinks Reception,which was perfect and we received lots of compliments from our guests. It was a welcomed change to what you would normally expect to see and hear at an Indian Wedding. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

    Hi Ruby We wanted to say a huge thank you for Tuesday - your musical input to our Civil Partnership event was beautiful and all our guests spoke very highly of the experience. We loved your song suggestions, in particular for our exit !! It was brilliant how you managed to give the children a "mini harp lesson" and we laughed when we heard the theme tune for " In the night Garden" start !! - We potentially had our hands full with so many little ones and your calming influence was a saviour and joy. We felt the whole event was spectacular with the snowy backdrop and appreciated all your efforts to be with us for what was a day that we will remember forever. Happy New Year !!!

I had always wanted a harp and it was just so beautiful listening to Ruby playing as I walked down the stairs!! Ruby was very accommodating and asked us for our list of songs and gave suggestions which was excellent. All of our guests thought it was wonderful having Ruby play, Ruby was very kind and made a special slot for some personal song choices for our parents etc, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. If you are thinking of having a harpist at yr wedding, do not hesitate to book Ruby!!
