Harp music for your wedding?

Just Two Flute and Harp Duo are an award-winning experienced Flute and Harp Duo with a difference providing live flute and harp music for weddings and many types of events.

We formed in 2009 after a chance phone call that led us to our first engagement together at Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex.

Predominantly, our engagements are weddings and civil partnerships where we create a relaxing ambience, a sense of style and elegance for all of our clients.

 

Other functions have included dinners for the Livery Companies in London, corporate events, masonic functions, and other special occasions including anniversaries and garden parties.  In addition, to these mainstream events, we have also undertaken educational demonstrations within schools. Live music always proves popular with students of all ages.

We have a vast repertoire from classical to modern pop, some light jazz, as well as music from earlier periods and Celtic styles.  Themes from the big and small screen along with music from the stage are also available.  Additionally, we have diversified into other genres of wedding music to encompass Asian and Middle Eastern wedding customs.  We are often asked for particular titles and are able to arrange music for our combination.  We keep up to date with all the new musical styles regularly arriving into the music industry; naturally some are more appropriate than others!

Most of our music is performed as a duo but some can be played solo either on the harp or flute.  This helps to provide pleasing contrasts in musical texture throughout an engagement.  Most importantly, all our music is performed live.  We never use recorded music or cd’s during our engagements.

Just occasionally, we have also been requested to complement the style of the event by dressing appropriately; for example, donning Tudor costumes and also Far Eastern attire, both have become additions to our stage wardrobe.

Having worked in the wedding and music industry for many years, it has provided valuable experience of the many venues over time, both new and traditional, which in turn has proved beneficial for our clients.  We are extremely proud at being a successful finalist in 2013, and then to be winners in 2014 and 2015, and finalists again in 2016 and 2017 in the Kent Wedding Awards.   As well as the International Wedding Award 2019 and Lux Life Best of the Wedding Industry Awards 2019.

Our reputation is extremely important to us and although we have many years’ experience in the industry, seeing trends come and go, we have never been complacent with regard to our professionalism, both musically and in our customer service, we continually strive to be the best at what we provide.
