Emily Sanzaro – Tasmanian Harpist


Live music is a special and unique addition to consider for your wedding.  Emily provides a professional service and has many years of experience in working with couples to provide beautiful music and a memorable ambience for their wedding celebration.

Emily recognises that good communication is paramount, working closely with couples to tailor a package to suit their individual needs.  Emily will do everything possible to ensure that couples’ expectations of the live music experience are met on their wedding day.

After initial discussions, Emily will provide you with a quotation taking into account the duration of the performance, travel and any other relevant factors.  Emily is happy to provide a face to face meeting so that couples can listen to the harp and decide if it is the right sound for them.  There is no cost associated with this meeting and no obligation to make a booking.

Special Requests
Emily is happy to discuss special song requests with you, provided that adequate time is allowed to enable Emily to prepare the song to the high standard she requires for performance.  ‘Special Requests’ refers to songs that are not already on Emily’s repertoire list:

Emily is happy to prepare up to 2 song requests free of charge.  If song requests are in excess of this then Emily will charge a fee per song at her discretion.  Please discuss your needs with Emily in relation to this.

Wedding Packages and Cost
Emily’s standard wedding packages start at $400 and include the following:

  • 20 minutes of harp music immediately prior to the ceremony (whilst guests are arriving)
  • Harp music during the ceremony as desired by the couple
  • 15 minutes of harp music immediately following completion of the ceremony

Emily is also available to play for longer duration, and / or at the wedding reception for an additional fee of $100 per hour.  Emily has a very flexible approach and will work with you to tailor a package to meet your needs.

If you do decide to go ahead with a booking, Emily will require a $100 non-refundable deposit to secure the date.

If the wedding venue is more than 10km out of Launceston, then a travel fee will be applied.  Emily will include this in her quotation.

Instruments; Acoustic or Amplified
Emily can offer a variety of choices for you including the following:
– Acoustic pedal harp (generally the harp doesn’t require amplification for wedding settings as it projects very well)
– Acoustic violin
– Electric harp in conjunction with Bose Compact L1 Personal Address system
– Amplified pedal harp or electric harp and / or amplified violin via Bose Compact L1 Personal Address system
– Looping and effects of amplified harp and / or violin via Boss RC300 Loopstation and Boss GT1 Effects unit  (Emily can combine harp and violin together through the use of the loopstation – see videos for examples)
Access to a power source is essential if Emily is using her PA, looping and / or effects gear.

An extra $50 fee applies to bookings utilising the PA, looping and effects gear due to the complexity of the setup and performance.
