Hi folks,

UPDATED 01/04/20 For the foreseeable future there is likely to be much disruption in the wedding industry as a whole.  Here are some pointers for what the Coronavirus means for Aelvenharp Weddings:

  • EFFECTIVE FROM TODAY UNTIL END OF APRIL - All wedding bookings from now until start of 2022 are suspended. This is so that I can get any couples from Spring/Early Summer 2020 who need to reschedule the best chance of being able to do so.
  • With regard to wedding bookings beyond  April, I will be adopting a "Carry on as normal" policy unless I hear otherwise from you, or unless the Government extend the current lockdown over the weeks and months ahead.
  • With regard to the Open Harp Surgery for those who have booked me for their ceremonies, these will all be cancelled. I shall also be exploring the possibility of holding these online via Zoom or an equivalent platform. I shall contact each couple effected by this when I have set it up.
  • Everything initially depends upon your venue, as they are the ones likely to make the decision one way or the other. Please notify me as soon as possible if they or you need to postpone, so that we can look at transferring your booking to your deferred date if I'm available.
  • Rescheduling is the 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 required for bookings cancelled within 2 months of the events, so do considering rescheduling sooner rather than later.

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

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".
