After months of sporadic online playing to be able to pack my harp up, get it into my car, drive to a venue and play music to other people in REAL LIFE at a wedding today was a much needed tonic.
Over the past 25 years I've played at the grandest to the most intimate of weddings, and yet today's was the most special. Streamed over the internet to friends and family who couldn't be there, the masked guests were witness to an event which will be remembered for many years to come.
Most weddings which had been years in the planning with huge guest lists and an array of wedding suppliers have all been postponed until 2021.
The few couples who have managed to get married in 2020 will be in a very exclusive club.
In years to come they can look back and wonder how on earth they ever managed the logistics of a wedding during a global pandemic. It will be a badge of honour that everyone who has got married this year can wear with pride.

If you enjoy reading Harpyness and you'd like to buy me a virtual coffee that would be very welcome. Cheers!
