I feel so lucky to find Vanessa for our wedding. Her perfomance was amazing! She made my wedding ceremony so romantic and dreamy and made me feel like a princess! Highly recommend Vanessa to whoever wants a remantic and fairytale wedding. She's very easy to communicate, very responsive and trustworthy.

Vanessa is honestly such an amazing harpist - such beautiful music comes out of her harp, its captivating! Discussing details with Vanessa is such an ease and fun, especially when this is all new to you. Greatly appreciate her knowledge with harp music. You are just immersed in the gorgeous music!

Vanessa and Mary did a great job providing the music for our wedding ceremony and canapes. They were wonderfully easy to deal with, played a couple of pretty unique songs we requested, and created a really nice vibe for our friends and family. The harp and violin were a really nice conversation in the chapel space where we had our ceremony and the dynamics were well managed so as to be clearly audible, but not too loud. Overall wonderful, would recommend to anyone.

Song ideas please! To walking down the aisle

Would love to see your best suggestions for aisle songs in 2023. Thank you.

Vanessa McKeand (harpist) and MV2 (violin and harp)

This can be a very personal choice of the bride, and apart from the popular classics such as the Bridal Chorus and Pachebels Canon in D, the bride can choose any song she feels she would love to make her entry with - I have played the Beach Boys, A Thousand Years, Back Street Boys, Ed Sheeran, Clair de Lune, Beauty and the Beast, Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring, the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba to name just a few. All happy to discuss options


Music ideas for straight after the ceremony

Music suggestions please! Trying to figure out an upbeat song to play after our vows when we walk back down the aisle together. Thank you.

Vanessa McKeand (harpist) and MV2 (violin and harp)

I have been requested to play many things at the end weddings, including Queen of Sheeba, Autumn from the Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Jesu Joy, God Only Knows (Beach Boys), I could have Danced all Night from My Fair Lady, Handels Passacaille, Irish Wedding Song, and many more, both popular and more classical. 

I hope that this helps!

Are there additional fees to have continuous music without breaks?

Vanessa McKeand (harpist) and MV2 (violin and harp)

If it is within a period of two hours, no extra charge will be made.
