For lever or pedal harp.
The Celtic Wedding Book by Aedan MacDonnell is a gem that's been a decade in the making. Aedan's specialty is Celtic music and she has found and arranged music from Scotland, Ireland and other Celtic countries that has been traditionally played for wedding ceremonies, as well as traditional music that is suitable for processionals, meditation/candle lighting and recessionals.
The pieces are in the key of C or 1, 2, or 3 sharps. One piece is in the key of F, but there are no B's in the piece, so so lever harp players tuned to C do not need to worry about re-tuning their harps. Chord symbols are included for all tunes, and some also include words, as well information about the tune. The arrangements are advanced beginner to intermediate with no finger markings.
Aedan has also included lots of interesting information about:
various wedding customs from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and the Orkney Isles
Irish wedding toasts
the meaning of the different flowers used in bridal bouquets
origins of the Irish Claddagh Ring as well as the traditional wedding ring
the wedding cake
