Hayley Wild studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and has had a varied career including playing in many West End shows, The Royal Opera House, The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and at The National Theatre. Hayley Wild now looks forward to making your wedding day magical with her unique, diverse harpist play list.
I really enjoy playing for weddings; meeting and helping couples choose their music and playing songs that you don’t normally hear on the harp – tunes such as Guns ‘n’ Roses and Clean Bandit.
I play such a diverse amount of music from classical, jazz, romantic and sometimes even a little soft rock and a few dance tracks. I love to be musically unpredictable.
Yes of course, I will be attending Wedding Planning Wednesdays and I love in Hampshire, so couples are welcome to come and see me in person too if they prefer.
Yes, I love to learn new songs and am always adding to my repertoire.
I dress formally for a wedding, normally a long skirt and blouse. I want to blend in with your day but still be able to play comfortably.
It is up to you. I book per section of the wedding.
Ceremony: 20 minutes before, to welcome guests in to the ceremony room and during the actual ceremony.
Drinks Reception: I’m happy to play outside too.
Wedding Breakfast: Adding to your wedding reception atmosphere.
You can book one section, or all three!
As soon as they know they want a harpist. We are few and far between and can only take one wedding per day, so it is best to book early in order to avoid disappointment.
If you could perform for any celebrity, who would it be for, and why?
Frank Sinatra. I played on the final Frank Sinatra Junior Tour in 2015 before Frank Junior passed away. I played ‘My Way’ as a harp solo with him singing and I would love to have had the opportunity to do it with Frank Sinatra himself.
