Having Jana playing the harp at our wedding added one of the most exquisitely intimate touches to the ceremony and pre-drinks. It truly enhanced the entire experience and added a wonderfully ethereal, classical layer of depth to the wedding as a whole. Besides being an exceptionally talented harpist, Jana was a dream to work with as a person: always friendly, professional, caring and a wonderful addition to our wedding team. I would recommend her unreservedly, a million times over. -- Illustrator Maria Magdalena 

What an absolute dream come true, to walk down the isle to the beautiful sound of Jana playing the harp alongside the cello and violin. From the moment we came across Jana on social media (years before getting married), we knew we had to have her at our wedding one day. And on our special day, as well as the months building up, we were not disappointed.  The ambiance that surrounded our love during our wedding ceremony was perfect, raw and real. Jana, your passion, sincerity, gentle spirit and talent all added so much to our day. Thank you for always giving your best and being so authentic while doing so. You are incredibly talented and we are so grateful for the moments you helped us create. We look forward to seeing you go from strength to strength in your music and will continue to tell anyone and everyone that you are an absolute must for their special day. Much love, Joelle & Andrea

Jana is an exceptionally talented harpist, who always gives her utmost best performance. She is reliable and always ensures that the best service is given. Thank you for your professionalism and for always ensuring that our clients' needs are met. -- Kirsten Putziger (Webersburg Events Manager)

Jana's performance was one of the highlights of our wedding and numerous guests have specifically referred to it as such. Not only was the music beautiful, adding to the magical atmosphere of our garden ceremony, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Jana was extremely patient and generous toward a somewhat indecisive bride and one of the most important lessons of wedding planning that I'd like to share with future brides is that having vendors who combine talent with kindness makes such a difference to the experience! -- Rori & Stephen

Jana and the team at harpNOTED absolutely blew us away! Their music was pure magic. Jana's talent, passion and sweet nature make her the best in the business and I am so blessed they were part of our special day. -- Katherine Demlakia

We simply had to have a harpist at our wedding, not just any harpist but the best we could find! We wanted to represent our Irish roots and tie in with our Celtic wedding and guests - enter Jana. What Jana gave to us was special, it turned that humble little chapel into a memory for many. The music was left up to Jana and was just perfect, adding that something specially different. We had a Ceili Mor (HUGE Irish party) that evening with Irish dancers and band, but the most talked about was “the wonderful harpist” at the chapel! Thank you for making our day very special.

-- Cathy & Derek -

Everyone that attended our wedding was full of compliments for Jana and her music, which lent a romantic ambience to the church pre-ceremony. The song which I requested for my walk down the aisle was not a common one, but Jana mastered it so beautifully that it still gives me goose bumps now when I replay the scene in my mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to add that extra touch of class to their special day.    -- Tiffany Palterman

Thank you for your beautiful music at the wedding ceremony at Constantia, we really appreciated & loved the beautiful sounds! The bride and groom was ecstatic and what a memory to take back to their country. Thank you so much for your valued contribution. -- Beverley Lee

A huge thanks to you and your husband on the classical guitar for the amazing atmosphere you created at the chapel as well as pre-drinks... It was absolutely beautiful! -- Monique & Nathan

We had a small intimate wedding at a local winery and asked HarpNOTED's Jana van der Walt and her friends to share their distinct musical talents with us.  It was wonderful.  The peaceful music combined with the sunshine, birds and our dear friends was magical.  Wedding planning can be stressful, but when the right ingredients all come together it makes for a most memorable occasion.  Jana and her friends brought a perfect touch of musical magic and beauty to our special day.  Thank you.

-- Mark & Anna

I have to extend a very big thank you to you for playing at our wedding. The entire ceremony was a bit of a whirlwind but before I walked down the aisle, when we were waiting all I could hear was the music echoing through the venue and it sounded so so magical and beautiful.

Definitely a memory I will never forget :) So thank you again! -- Zena

We love working with harpNOTED. They are professional and come highly recommended. They arrive on time, the clients love their music and they are always a hit.

I would add them to any event or wedding where you really want to 'wow' the crowd. -- Cara Lee Mc Laughlin (wedding planner -- The Mosaic Wedding Company)

Jana and her artists created such an extraordinary atmosphere at our reception. We wanted something beautiful and elegant, and Jana exceeded our expectations. All our guests complimented us on our choice of musical accompaniment for our reception. They gave us the atmosphere that helped tie everything together. Unreservedly highly recommended; especially if you want more than just another wedding DJ. Thank you!

-- Marcelle & Juan

Jana is not only a wonderfully talented harpist, but the whole process of booking her for an event is seamless and hassle-free. Her repertoire consists of both classical and contemporary music and she gladly assists with suggestions. I would highly recommend harpNOTED.

Thank you so much for making our dream wedding so special with your beautiful music! There are really no words to express the emotions I felt when I heard you play Ave Maria for my walk down the aisle, it is something I will always remember and cherish. Wedding planning is one of the most stressful times in a brides life and having a professional, enthusiastic and attentive service provider such as yourself is an absolute pleasure.

Jana's harp playing was absolutely amazing and added a magical element to the build-up to the ceremony. Her skill and willingness to learn new songs close to our heart made a lasting impression. Her repertoire included a wide variety of songs, not only traditional harp music which really impressed our guests. If we ever have another event requiring a musician, Jana will be at the top of our list and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to add a special touch to their wedding day or event.
