Nicola Teaselle

About

Nicola is an awarded Harpist. Having studied at The Guidhall School of Music, The University of Nottingham and Trinity College London, she now performs at weddings, functions, festivals and her own recitals.

Having performed with the Kent County Youth Orchestra, Kent Youth Chamber Orchestra, Maidstone Youth Music Society and the Kent Youth Wind Orchestra, Nicola has been the principal harpist for a number of professional orchestras including English Pro Musica, Maidstone Symphony Orchestra, Folkestone and Hythe Symphony Orchestra and various choral societies and amateur dramatic groups.

At Weddings the harp can provide not only beautiful and unique music but a fantastically flexible musical solution. Unlike other forms of musical entertainment, the harp can be easily transported into any venue of your choosing – either a small chapel or large hotel suite, inside or outside.

Quiet, calming music as guests settle into their seats, the entry of the bride, the signing of the register, the exit of the bride and groom, drinks reception and wedding breakfast.

Nicola is more than happy to discuss precise musical requirements – whether you would like traditional wedding marches, or modern pop classics, your tastes can be provided for!

The harp is suitable for more than just weddings. Whether you are having a birthday party, or a corporate business event, harp music creates a welcoming atmosphere and adds a touch of elegance to your day. Nicola can tailor the music she plays to cater for the occasion, the situation and the guests to create the perfect setting.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. Everyone commented on how beautifully you played and I have already passed your details on to two friends who are getting married next year!
Thanks again for helping to make our day so special.
