"Although we have been in communication via social media, I wanted to email you with a formal thank you for agreeing to attend Chloe and Adam’s big day and for making it so memorable. We have three hours of audio with your set, which sounds pretty good for a live recording. We’ll get an audio file to you as soon as possible. I shall be singing your praises to everyone and will recommend you to as many people as I can. You are an amazing musician and it was a great pleasure to hear you play such an eclectic mix. It could not have been bettered. We send every good wish to you!  If you decide to record any more CDs, let me know!'

Rosemary (Mother of the Bride - Walton Castle - April 2018)

 

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note on behalf of Ella and I, before we shoot off on our honeymoon, to say many thanks for playing at our wedding. You truly were amazing to hear live and it helped to cap a wonderful day for us. I think it’s fair to say that the majority of our guests wouldn’t ordinarily listen to ‘classical’ musicians and probably have only seen a live harpist rarely (if it all), yet your performance was the talking point I received the most feedback on from our guests during the day, as people were spellbound by your music and your talent. We both had a fantastic day and if there was one small regret it's that we were so busy we didn’t get to listen to much of your earlier playing, but I will never forget hearing your version of 'Eyes on Me’ during our signing and your music just made the Wedding Breakfast extra special. I hope we get to see you play again one day when we are slightly less hectic! You have been brilliant since we first contacted you and your enthusiasm on the day really helped with the event, so if you ever need a recommendation we would be happy to oblige. Many thanks again and we wish you all the best for the future."

Daryl (and Ella) (Beechfield House - April 2018)

 

"On behalf of Lynne, our family and friends I would like to thank you most sincerely for performing and joining us for our Anniversary dinner.   I wanted it to be something special and your presence and performance ensured that no one was disappointed. Everyone, young and old (especially our Grandsons) were amazed by the music (comments like harps aren't supposed to sound like that) have asked me to pass on their most sincere thanks. Lynne and I thank you again for making our special day even more special. With much love xxx"

Mick (Golden Wedding Anniversary - The Stonemill - April 2018)

 

"Hello lovely lady! Just wanted to drop you a message thanking you again for your amazing music on Thursday at our wedding. We literally have not stopped talking about how fabulous you were - Zane absolutely loved Still Dre & Gangstas Paradise & I could hear them when I met the registrars too - it blew me away how incredible you sounded!! Your service and attention to detail from the initial enquiry to performing on the day was incredible, you are genuinely a lovely person! Thank you again xx"

Katie & Zane (Elmore Court - March 2018)

 

"I would just like to say a massive THANK YOU for making our Wedding the most memorable day, we haven't stopped hearing from all of our guests saying you were amazing and that they thoroughly enjoyed every moment you played, it was magical!!! "

Philippa & David (Birtsmorton Court - March 2018)

 

"Dear Jemima, we must tell you what a huge success your music was at our anniversary house party last Friday evening. Julie and I are familiar with the wonders of an expertly played harp - but your whole performance was much more than we had expected. We loved it! As for our unsuspecting guests - they were genuinely blown away by your music. Their comments after the event ("Jemima was superb" etc etc.) leave us in no doubt that you have recruited more to the ranks of the 'harp music appreciation society'. Thank you for everything you brought to our anniversary celebrations."

Julie & Keith (Diamond Wedding Anniversary - March 2018)

 

"I would just like to thank you so much for what an incredible and beautiful job you did on Friday. Everyone has commented how intimate and delicate the music was for our ceremony and loved how you rocked it up for the drinks reception! Apologies that we didn’t see you when you left, but it was a very hectic day as I’m sure you can imagine! Thank you for keeping the ceremony going whilst I was delayed getting there. I’m not sure if you were made aware but our wedding cars didn’t arrive, apparently the company forgot about our booking!! A stressful thing to happen but we got there in the end and that’s all that matters. All the best for a busy wedding season. you were incredible and we would both highly reccomend you for any event."

Hannah & Ben (Longleat House - March 2018)

 

"Thank you very very much for how you performed at our gathering. You were absolutely brilliant and contributed hugely. Everybody was very impressed with what you did! You exceeded our expectations and I am very very grateful! Thanks a lot and best wishes."

Peter (Golden Wedding Anniversary - March 2018)

 

"A quick thank you. The harp workshop was wonderful. I am so glad Sam has the opportunity to engage with such amazing and talented people who can share their passions so effectively. And.... A massive thank you for letting us join in. I loved every minute!"

Bridget (Parent - Harp Workshop - Pates Grammar School - March 2018)

You were amazing and made a very sad day special. Can you txt me to let me know you have got home safely. X"

Luke & Simon (Foxhill Manor - February 2018)

 

"I would like to say thank you again for your beautiful playing at our wedding. I was mesmerized by your music during the wedding ceremony, and can't wait to see the video of you playing at the drinks reception, which I coudn't listen to unfortunately because I had to change into Hanbok, Korean costume. My family said it was their first encounter with harp, and they absolutely loved it too."

Misook and Richard (Mansfield College, Oxford - February 2018)

 

"I just wanted to send you a massive thank you for making our day so special. You wouldn’t believe the number of people that have commented on your playing and I will be shouting recommendations your way whenever I can. Not only that, but your personality really shone through and guests, and myself alike, have remarked on how lovely you were during your time with us. When I told people initially that we were having a harpist they were quite unsure having been to other weddings where they couldn’t hear them and they had no impact but you were the exact opposite and had maximum impact in every positive way possible! I really can’t thank you enough!"

Matt and Craig (Old Down Manor, Bristol - Valentine's Day 2018)

 

"This lady is absolutely fantastic! I am so gutted I didn't get to give her a big cwtch and thank her for playing harp in our wedding ceremony. Jemima, all I've had is compliments and all our guests loved your playing. You're fab, I knew you would be and your so down to earth like us valley people 😉 So sorry I didn't get to thank you properly. I can't thank you enough 😘😘😘😘😘😘🤗 big hugs lovely lady. You made the start of our wonderful day the best it could be. Everyone was still talking about it in the evening. No one knew Metallica etc could be played on a harp 😁 I knew you'd be awsome. Thanks so much. Anyone thinking of booking her. Just do it you won't regret it! Xxxxxx

Leslie and Andrew  (Cowbridge - January 2018)

 

 

"We just wanted to thank you so much for making our special day so personal to us. Our guests were enchanted by the beautiful ceremony music, then blown away by the electronic harp at our drinks reception. It was an honour and our pleasure too have you play for us all."

Ian and Jacqui (Clevedon - January 2018)

 

 

"WOW - What can we say. You are just the most perfect person to have to play at our wedding. We feel you set the tone to our wedding - relaxed, gorgeous and totally brilliant! Moana was so special to walk down the aisle to and Gangsta Paradise was epic! Everyone has been in awe of your talent and skill and you were the guests highlight of our wedding. The best money spent and we just need more excuses to have a party so you can come play for us more! Thank you and wishing you a very happy and healthy 2018!"

Lindsay & Jamie (Thornbury Castle, October 2017)

 

"We wanted to write and thank you for your beautiful harp music at Becky and Dan's wedding in October at St Pierre. So many guests commented on the high standard of your playing and the variety of your repertoire. We would like to thank you also for your professional approach, which made working with you so relaxed and a great pleasure. Becky wishes that she had had more time on the day to sit and appreciate your music....but it is a busy day for the bride and groom. She would love to hear you play again sometime, so please would you let us know if you have any local performances arranged over the coming months.  We wish you all the very best with your future career. You deserve to be successful!"

The Broughton and Halliday Families (St. Pierre, October 2017)

 

"Becca and I wanted to send you a very very big thank you for your totally wonderful playing at Becca’s wedding last Saturday.  I can’t tell you how special it made it - everyone said how beautiful it was in the church as they started to come in and sit down - but the really totally special moment was when you played The Wedding Song as Becca and her brother came in.  The atmosphere and mood that music created for Becca’s entrance was electric -  it was exquisite and you play so magnificently it was a really special moment for us. So thank you, thank you - I am so happy we found you!  I have told Dewsall you must go on their recommended list of musicians - and they agreed! Many many thanks again from both of us."

Jenny & Becca (Mother & Bride - Dewsall Court, October 2017)

 

"We just wanted to thank you so so much for performing on our big day! Everybody was absolutely mesmerised by you and your music! Was magical! One of the guests asked me where did you find Jemima? :) She sounds like a whole band playing! I said we were very lucky! Your choice of music was spot on! We loved all the songs and would have chosen them ourselves! Everyone really enjoyed your music. Can’t believe how you managed to adapt so many current songs to your instrument! If we ever plan another family event we will definitely give you a call and book you for longer time!"

Ana & Paul (The Slaughters Manor House, Cotswolds - October 2017)

 

"My goodness! The Polly Morris Band was totally blown away on Friday when we found ourselves sharing a billing with Jemima Phillips who did things with the harp that you would not believe. She went seamlessly from Haydn to Hip Hop with a bit of live looping thrown in. What a fabulous evening."

Polly Morris Music (Concert - Wimborne, September 2017)

We hope our paths cross again."

Annabel & Pete (Compleat Angler, August 2017)

You really made it special and it is a day we'll never forget 🎶 a special thanks for playing Castle on the Hill for us as our exit song at such short notice!"

Hollie & Alex (Clearwell Castle, July 2017)

 

"Thank you so much for making our wedding day that little more special. You added something to the Pavilion which was magical I just wish I could re live it again to enjoy the whole experience, soak up the atmosphere and just sit and listen to you. Your performance of 'A Thousand Years' was beautiful and something I wish I could hear again. Your music choices were perfect and performed to perfection. Thank you so very much words just don't seem enough to show you our appreciation for a very special vibe that you bought to the day xxxx"

Sandra & Lawrence (July 2017)

 

"The concert you played at last night in Newland Church was incredible and it was a truly entertaining and enjoyable evening. You are indeed a very gifted and talented musician.

Veronica (Concert, July 2017)

 

"What can we say....You were incredible! We can't thank you enough for your performance at our wedding. You really did make our day and everyone else. All our guests loved you and praised you so much! No one wanted you to leave! You definitely set the wedding off exactly how we wanted it to go. We're already creating our next event so we can have you! I have passed your details to friends and family who will be getting married over the next couple of years. You truly are a fantastic artist and we can't thank you enough! Many thanks again - we hope to see you in the future."

Love Me Do Bridal (June 2017)

 

"We absolutely loved working with the hugely talented Jemima for our wedding last weekend at Caer Llan! From beginning to the very end, she was incredibly helpful and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. We truly appreciated her enthusiasm in the run up as well as on the day itself. We had lots of fun choosing our ceremony music, and lots of guests commented on her talent. Jemima clearly loves what she does as well as being able to help her clients get the best from her amazing talent. Thank you!!"

Lal & Vince (Caer Llan, June 2017)

 

"What can we say, you are brilliant at what you do and loved what you did! The atmosphere you created was perfect and hearing songs you wouldn't expect to be played by harp surprised many of our guests. A definite talking point throughout the day and made a real difference. Hearing the Foo Fighters - just brilliant! Thank you so much."

Jenny & Steve (Clearwell Castle, June 2017)

 

"We just wanted to message you to say an absolute huge thank you for playing at our Wedding. You were even more amazing than we imagined! We had sooooooo many compliments on how memorizing your music was. We only wish that we had got more time to hear you play, thankfully we had lots of guest taking videos!! A couple of people getting married in 2018 had taken your details from us so hope its ok to pass them on. We were saying that we need to book you again so we can just sit and listen to you interrupted! We're so pleased that we found you and that you could play for us. Thanks again xx"

Vicki and James (Moxhull Hall, June 2017)

 

"Just a quick email from me to thank you for your contribution to the concert on Friday evening.  It's fair to say that your playing and personality captured the audience and I had many complimentary remarks about both after the concert. We had a fantastic evening so thanks again and I hope we can get together in the not too distant future for a concert with the band."

Rob (Lydbrook Music Festival, June 2017)

The new Mr & Mrs Winter (Manor by the Lake, April 2017)

I have memories of the James Bond tune when I was with my mates before the ceremony and the meal turned in to a bit of a night club when you played Gangstas Paradise! You made our friends day!

Kerry & Rob (Cripps Barn, July 2016)

"I thought a quick note of thanks was in order for your performances to support the Defence Academy's Purple Ball this weekend, and doubly so as circumstances prevented me personally thanking you on the night.  We are generally an inert, philistine and curmudgeonly bunch, but in short, I have heard nothing but glowing praise, eulogy and enjoyment for your incredible playing, and you were unanimously declared to be a massive hit. I sincerely hope you enjoyed the evening as much as the guests, and will unreservedly recommend you as a fixture for future events. Again thank you."

Lieutenant Colonel - British Army (Summer Ball, July 2016)

You really set the day off to a beautiful and fantastic tone and it wouldn't have been anywhere near the same without you. 

Darren & Karlie (December 2015)

 

"We can't thank you enough for helping make our day so extra special and memorable in every way. The comments we had, let alone the tears that were shed whilst you played Songbird to us just went to show how much everyone enjoyed listening to you. I only wish it had been recorded so we could listen to it all over again. You were absolutely amazing and we would like to thank you again from the bottom of our heart xx"

Caroline & Lee (Baytree Hotel, Burford - November 2015)

"Just sat listening to Clean Bandit 'Rather Be' & it sent a shiver down my spine as I remember you playing this (at my request) at Jordan & Brett's wedding ceremony. It was a magical day, but you really were the icing on the cake. Thank you so much for making it a truly unique & special day for us. Every wedding should have a Jemima!!!!"

Carol (Mother of the Bride - St Pierre, July 2015)

 

"Both myself and Jane would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a simply amazing set by yourself at our wedding.

Philip & Jane (Wyke Hill, August 2015)

 

"Jemima thank you for performing at our wedding at Kenilworth Castle last Saturday. Our guests are still mentioning you now. They were amazed at both the acoustic and the electric harp performances. Fantastic thanks!"

Dom (Groom - Kenilworth Castle, July 2015)

"It's no exaggeration to say that aside from the venue itself and my lovely bride, your music was undoubtedly the highlight of the day. Your music intertwined perfectly with our day and your interpretations of the pieces we requested (at the last minute, sorry!) were breathtakingly beautiful, rendering me an absolute emotional mess. In retrospect I cannot imagine how our day would have been as special without your music. Anyway I've probably embarrassed you enough with my praise! Look forward to hearing your own pieces/compositions when you get the time. Good luck with the Masters."

Luke & Georgina (Eastnor Castle, June 2015)

 

"Thank you so much Jemima for being a big part of our special day at Berkeley Castle. You are such a talented and warm person :-) All the guests commented on how great you were xxxx"

In fact we might create an occasion just so we can."

James and Charlotte (Pitville Pump Rooms, Cheltenham - January 2015)

 

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our ceremony and reception extra special by playing your wonderful harp! I loved being able to finally meet you, you're such a lovely person and really did a fab job! So many people said to me that they loved your music and we all would suddenly recognise a song and start singing or humming along. It went down so well. We can thank you enough!!"

Joanna & Glenn

 

"Thank you for the beautiful music you played at our wedding. All our guests were blown away with your playing and enjoyed every moment. I hope one day I will have the need to hire you again so I can sit and just enjoy listening to you."

"Thank you so much for coming to play at our Masked Ball. Everyone LOVED your contribution and said it really set the scene for what proved to be a very successful evening.

I hope to see you at the Hospice before you leave – again I have been so impressed with the contribution you have made there, to the lives of those who have attended your music therapy sessions."

Helen

 

"I cannot express how fabulous you are and how grateful we are for the most amazing music you gave us at our wedding. Our guests LOVED you!!!

Liz and Amir

 

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday, everyone was all day complementing your playing and they still are! You where absolutely fantastic, and to learn those two songs so quickly and play them so well was amazing and meant the world to me and Luke. Everyone was mesmerized by your playing. It set the mood perfectly. Thank you so much again, and I will definitely be suggesting you, wherever possible."

Sam and Luke

 

"I had the privilege last night of hearing you play at the remembrance service in Coleford, as did my husband and young family who attended the event ( showing their support for my first concert as I'm a newbie choir member!) I felt compelled to send you a message to say how much listening to your music has impacted on me. The sound of the harp is, in my humble opinion like no other, and your passion for what you do shines through. I felt truly privileged to be singing in a choir which was accompanied by you and just wanted you to know. I hope I will be able to hear you play at events in the future."

Sally

 

"Just to say thank you so much - your playing was perfect for what was a perfect day for Lucy and Kyle.  So many people commented on how lovely it was to hear your music - I can't thank you enough you pleased everybody there!  Beautiful!!"

"Another triumph for the talented Royal Harpist, again you had us all in the palm of your hand. We were all so pleased to hear you play such magical music, you kept us all spellbound with such an interesting range. You are just wonderful in every way. A truly gifted musician; a beautiful young lady; and with such a lovely, lovely personality." 

Jaqueline & Austin Millington, English Speaking Union

 

"We wanted to write and thank you for the fabulous music you played at our wedding. It was wonderful to be able to listen to the harp while we signed the register - very magical and many thank you letters we have received say how beautifully you played in the marquee. The children were spellbound. Thank you for helping to make the day extra special for us."

Miranda and Colin 

 

  "I just cannot thank you enough for your part in the concert last week. The reaction to the harp has been quite extraordinary. I think everybody who has written or called me has mentioned how much they loved your playing. I hope your ears are burning." 

Diana Cawdron, Home-Start Carol Concert, Guards Chapel

 

 "I just wanted to say a big thank you for attending our wedding and playing so beautifully for our special day, you were amazing and all guests did comment to me you were brilliant. On behalf of Matthew and I we both wanted to apologize that we didn't personally come and speak to you and thank you on the day, to be honest the whole day went so quickly and it seemed to be over in a flash. We have just returned today from our honeymoon and this is the first opportunity to email and I will be happily recommending you to others." 

Lucy and Matthew

 

"You could have sold out Thurlston Long Gallery twice I reckon, and in addition to a fantastic performance I would like to thank you for your part in the the post-concert discussion - everything I wished it to be and enlightening for the audience."

Toby Smith, Cheltenham International Festival

 

 "Jemima recently played at our son's wedding and many of the guests commented on how beautifully she played. She arranged her own music and it was most appropriate and provided an excellent backdrop to the wedding reception. We would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone who wanted a charming harpist at their function."

Peter & Sue Munday

 

"Your harp playing was so beautiful, we couldn't stop clapping. Me and my family would like to see you playing again so please could you send me your concert programme." 

Monika Szedaer

 

"But the stand out performance of the evening was from Jemima Phillips, the Prince of Wales's Royal Harpist. Fresh from playing at Charles's nuptials, Jemima delighted everyone with her versatile playing that covered both classics and jazz." 

Lifestyles Gala Concert

 

 "Jemima Phillips, was a revelation. She was fun, entertaining and perfection." 

Dr David Mathias, Orpheus Male Voice Choir Concert

 

"I would like to thank you on behalf of 'Eyes Right' for supporting our concert in West Byfleet. i think it fair to say that in the years we have been running the concert we have never had anyone more popular than you. Your performance was very well received and a delight to listen to. "

Mr M Tappin, Consultant Opthamologist, Ashford and St. Peter's Hospitals NHS Trust

 

"We were all so completely captivated by your lady harpist - seldom can the great 12 have been reduced to such total and attentive silence! I shall now view the instrument with renewed respect." 

Masters and Ladies of the Twelve Great Livery Companies

 

"Thank you so much for the recital on Friday and for signing the programmes which helped boost funds very nicely. As a result of the evening, Papyrus in the Marches raised £1525 for suicide prevention which was splendid.
