UPDATED 25/09/20 Here are some pointers for what the current Coronavirus status means for Aelvenharp Weddings:

The Maximum of 15 at Weddings has just been introduced However, 30 are still allowed at funerals, and no restrictions have come through regarding church services yet. The advice is not clear at this stage but it MAY be possible that church weddings can continue as before.  This is far from clear, but I will follow the decision that your church makes with regards to the circumstances and the new restrictions.

  • Bookings already in the diary have a "Carry on as normal" policy unless I hear otherwise from you, and depending on Government guidelines.
  • With regard to the Open Harp Surgery for those who have booked me for their ceremonies, these will all be cancelled and I shall contact each couple separately to organise a meet-up either virtually or in person.
  • Your venue are the ones most likely to advise you to cancel. Please notify me as soon as possible if this happens.
  • Rescheduling to a different date is my preferred option. We will cross the cancellation bridge when we get there.
  • If you have already booked your wedding with me, then the In Extremis clause on the Terms & Conditions becomes relevant in a crisis such as this in the event that I am unwell and unable to travel to your wedding. This means that any balance paid before the event is non-returnable, so you might want to consider the option of paying in cash on the day rather than transferring money beforehand.
  • Your £100 booking deposit is non-refundable in any case.
  • 50 % of your balance is usually required for bookings cancelled within 2 months of the events, but for the purposes of our current crisis I am waiving this clause for all UNPAID balances. This does not apply to paid balances for which the 50% remains clause in place.

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me (details above).



Life continues in this new normal, and already many of you are thinking ahead to 2021 and 2022 wanting to make plans for your future. As a good friend of mine has said: Love isn't cancelled!

I will be making some changes as we move forward which will affect all new bookings from this point onwards.

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me (details above).

Seasonal Music from the Harpinator!


HELLO! My Name Is Alison Eve

You can call me Ali...  I have been privileged to play at your weddings since 2006.

As a child I learned piano, trumpet and guitar, studying voice after college. My first harp came to live with us in 1999, and it's the instrument I've been waiting for all my life! 

In 1989 I married my heavy metal drummer, and we now play in the folk band, "Eve & The Garden". He's a vicar and sometimes we do weddings together! I run a female-voice choir called "nChant", and a duo with a violinist called, "Hey Diddle Diddle The Harp & The Fiddle".
