| Here is how it works - What You Provide
What Alison requires of you is a firm wedding date, a relatively stable intinerary for the day and general idea of how you desire the wedding to flow.
Please then contact Alison and have an in depth discussion on what is both possible and adviseable to have her harp and audio services make your wedding entertainment flow seamlessly throughout your wedding day. Alison will work out a tentative travel schedule including ferry timings and required overnights. Alison's pricing will be very specific to your wedding and will factor in time of year, day of week, distance, technical services provided and her ability to take advantage of your location for purposes other than your wedding.
| Elopements - Getting Away to the "Wild"
Romantic get away weddings
are never easier to organise than when the bridal couple
quietly elopes. The quorum for eloping in British Columbia
is five participants. The Bride and Groom, a marriage
commissioner and two legal witnesses. These witnesses
can be dual purpose also functioning as both the harpist
and photographer too. It does not get much more romantic
than having Alison as your own personal harpist for
your intimate wedding on the West Coast.
A small intimate wedding
with a few guests in a stunning region along Coastal BC works well too, as long as you pre-arrange the services
to ensure their
availability. Learn how to get
married in British Columbia.
Alison and Stephen Vardy have a small professionally adapted custom Dodge Grand Caravan RV that is fully equipped with stove, fridge, sink, water supply, large double bed, furnace and on-board lighting. It only lacks for toilet facilities and can be used in most environments summer or winter. For small weddings and elopements arrangements must be made for secure warm storage of the harp(s) outside the RV overnight.
Augmenting the RV is a double-decker cargo trailer that carries harps in the top tier and audio/sound gear in the bottom tier. Alison uses the trailer for larger weddings that require audio technology and amplification. The trailer can be used at any location where there is a turn-around but cannot be used on ice or snow so the trailer is generally only used in temperatures above freezing.
Seriously remote areas and wet weather conditions are handled with ease as this RV/van morphs into various setups to accommodate the weather of all four seasons. Our only caveat is the harps must not get wet nor freeze. We generally provide our own sunshade for the harps as required.
