As I am now the resident harpist at Riverside Ensembles, I participated in two wedding expos this month.
The first was the eBridal Wedding Expo. It's a huge expo, has hundreds of vendors, is held at the convention centre, and runs over two days. I played two solo sets on both Saturday and Sunday. When I was not playing, the string quartet was performing. It was very fun but what was even more surprising was that a couple booked me to play for their engagement party which was on the day of the booking (ie. I got the gig on the day!).
The following week-up I was in Willetton for The Wedding Faire Grand Opening Expo - again representing Riverside Ensembles. It was an invite event which meant there weren't as many vendors, but they were all high quality ones. It was a children-friendly event (there was a bouncy castle, fairy floss and a face-paint stall). I got to wear a flower crown which was a really cool finishing touch (and which definitely confirmed the harpist stereotype I think!)
