100+ Best Harpist Wedding Songs for the Perfect Romantic Atmosphere

100+ Best Harpist Wedding Songs for the Perfect Romantic Atmosphere

Nothing says romantic quite like the harp, which is why it remains such a popular choice of instrument for wedding ceremony music and drinks receptions.

We've collated an extensive list of popular wedding songs that quite simply sound incredible on the harp. Whether you're looking for traditional classical music, contemporary or a fantasy-inspired soundtrack, our comprehensive list of over 100 harpist songs will be sure to inspire you.

Unsure of your time frame? Typically, a harpist will cover 20-30 minutes pre-ceremony music as guests arrive, the processional, bridal entrance, signing of the register and the bridal exit.

Most harpists can sight read, so as long as there's sheet music available online, there are no limits to what a wedding harpist can play on your special day. If the sheet music is unavailable, a harpist may even be able to write a bespoke arrangement just for you.
