Oona played at our wedding in January and what can I say except wow! Played so wonderfully and added a beautiful atmosphere to the venue! We are so glad we had you play on our big day and also thank you for being so kind during all our date changes because of the pandemic. You really helped keep it simple with the change of dates and you being this way helped us stay calm throughout. Would highly recommend for that touch of class! Thank you once again!!

I am so pleased I chose Oona as my harpist for my wedding ceremony, her music was absolutely beautiful and the only drawback to being the bride was that I couldn't sit and listen to more of her talented playing. Thank you so much Oona
