For lever or pedal harp.

Angi Bemiss has created a guidebook for harpists who play for weddings which includes very playable lever harp arrangements of 18 wedding classics and hymns. Chord symbols are included, but no fingerings. Lever changes are written in the music, but pedal changes are not indicated. This very useful guide also includes instructions for setting up a Wedding Notebook, and a template for a Wedding Notes Card to keep track of each wedding's details.

Here's how Angi Bemiss describes this collection in her introduction.
As wedding harpists, we are the "glue." We start the wedding with the prelude. We watch eagerly for signals that the grandmothers & mothers are about to enter (which I consider to be the official beginning of the ceremony). Then, we play for the procession of the bridesmaids and then the bride. Sometimes, it's quick. Sometimes, it's protracted. Regardless, everyone expects our music to end the moment the bride reaches the front - magically, no matter what piece we're playing! And finally, we eagerly wait for the perfect moment ("the kiss") to begin the recessional. In each phase, it's our job to start the right song and to keep it going for exactly as long as it needs to be before moving seamlessly into the next song. It's a big job, but we can do it!
The secret to our success lies in being well organized (and knowing the music!), and the KISS Weddings System holds the keys to getting organized. Now, let's get started.

We are selling two versions of this PDF:
The version for harps tuned to C is for lever harps tuned to the key of C.
The version for harps tuned to E-flat is for lever harps tuned to the key of E-flat (3 flats).
Pedal harpists may play either version.
Be sure to order the correct one for your harp.
