    A wonderful experience and wonderful music

    I can not begin to explain how much our guests just loved the harp music before and after!

    Magical day

    Samantha was an amazing addition to my wedding, she had a great repertoire of music to fit for my wedding theme which was Disney and she even learned a new song for me which was a whole new world from Aladdin! The only thing that I wish was that I wasn't so busy and could have spent more time listening to her play! All of my guests loved her music and still talk about how nice it was to hear a real harp in person. She is also extremely kind and a pleasure to work with.

    Little Harp on the Prairie's reply:

    Thank you so much for the incredibly sweet review, Lauren! It was my absolute pleasure to play for you and your guests, and your family were so friendly. It's a wedding I won't soon forget!!

    Very friendly and accommodating

    My fiancé had a few songs that she wanted Samantha to play for our wedding, one of them was with a vocalist that was in our wedding party. Samantha has no issue learning the new song and contacting our friend to coordinate a bit of practice so it went along smoothly. I found her to be very professional and the harp was loud enough to be heard throughout the entire parish.

    Thank you for making our day even more special.

    Highly recommend!

    Samantha did a fantastic job at our wedding! The booking process was straight forward and Samantha was always quick to reply. Despite the cool end of September day, Samantha did a marvelous job at creating a beautiful atmosphere before our wedding, during and after the ceremony. Her range of song selection allowed us to create a more classical tone prior to the ceremony and an upbeat joyous one for an afternoon tea following the ceremony. During the ceremony, she catered for our unconventional requests, from playing "Concerning Hobbits" (from Lord of the Rings)' for the groom as the last song prior to the start, so he could get his own song, but also as a signal for him and the groomsmen to get in place, "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You" (Elvis Presley) for the bridesmaids and learning "Rather Be" (Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne) for the song to be played while we and the witnesses signed our wedding documents. She is a very talented musician and very professional throughout the event. I will always have lovely memories of hearing her beautiful music on the day.

    Little Harp on the Prairie's reply:

    Thank you so much Aimee! It was such a pleasure working with you and I can still picture that lovely September day :) Great song requests and a great couple! Thanks again for inviting me to be a part of your wedding.

    Elegant Music

    Great music selection new and old and very reasonably priced. My husband and I were not sure what music to chose so we went on the website and Samantha's YouTube page which made it easy and smiple to chose the music. Wedding guest were impressed and enjoyed how the harp brought a nice elegant feeling to the ceremony. Samantha was quick on her reply's and was a lot of fun to work with. Would 100% recommend!

    Little Harp on the Prairie's reply:

    Thank you so much Keesha! It was my pleasure to play for you and Joel and I wish you two all the best in your marriage!

    Wonderful touch of charm for the big day

    Delightful to have for our wedding day! Her music can be just a tad limited, understandably since not everything translates well to the Harp, but the quality of her skill is phenomenal! She was easygoing and very fun to plan our slightly geeky music choices with. 9.8/10 strongly recommended for consideration!

    Amazing Harpist

    Samantha is super talented and fantastic to work with! Such a great option if you want a live musician to play at your wedding. Samantha also learned a song we requested, she wasn’t sure about the song at first but got back to us right away with a sample and it sounded great! All in all super happy with everything.

    Little Harp on the Prairie's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review, Ally! It was an honour to play at your wedding and I'm so glad to hear you were happy with everything.

    Mushumanski-Gowrie wedding

    Hiring Samantha added an element of serenity and elegance to our ceremony. We had a lot of comments on how unique it was to have a harp instead of the usual organ or piano. She worked with us to pick the perfect music for each part of the ceremony and we would hire her again should we have an opportunity.
