We booked Fionnuala for our wedding after searching for a wedding musician online. We were very impressed with her music and her gorgeous singing voice after listening to recordings on her website. We were so delighted that she was even better in person and her stunning harp music added the perfect ambiance for our ceremony and wedding reception. Our guests loved her and we are so happy to have chosen her and that she was available for our special day. She was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the wedding and she guided us through the process and helped us choose the best music to suit our ceremony. She is very versatile and has a broad range of music to offer. Futhermore, she has great insight into the wedding ceremony layout and gave us some tips for the design and format of our ceremony as we created our own humanist ceremony from scratch ourselves. We are really looking forward to receiving our wedding video in a few weeks and listening to her again. We would highly recommend Fionnuala to anyone having a wedding or any other event!

Fionnuala is a skilled and talented professional musician. She created such a wonderful atmosphere at our ceremony and her playing was beautiful. Fionnualas voice is as good as her harp skills so I would recommend a mixture of both at a ceremony so you don't miss out. She has an extensive repertoire playing both classical, modern and traditional pieces. We chose a mixture for our ceremony and it worked brilliantly. The only thing I regret is not getting a chance to thank Fionnuala after the ceremony for making it so perfect and magical .. So thank you so much Fionnuala!

I must give the highest praise to Fionnuala for every thing that she did in making our wedding so special. From the moment that I enquired about her availability, Fionnuala was responsive and a joy to deal with. Her music and performance at the wedding itself was incredible and we couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you so much in making it so memorable!

All of our guests said that you made the ceremony. Fionnuala we can't thank you enough, you truly are one in a million and the love you have for your job shines from you!
