Weddings

 

 

Setting the right tone from the very beginning of your wedding day...

Choosing the right music for your ceremony is such an important factor in planning a wedding.  It is the first thing the guests will hear and sets the tone for the rest of the day.  To every wedding Sarah brings experience, reliability and excellence of performance backed by over 15 years in the business.  Above all, Sarah aims to make each wedding unique with her singing and to bring a little musical magic to a very special day.

Sarah specialises in being able to sing in any genre and has a very broad selection of songs to suit all tastes, including classical, modern, Irish traditional and sacred.  See her Song List here. She will guide you through each step of the ceremony, whether it be a church, civil or civil partnership wedding.

If you have a special request for a song  - even if it is in a different language - she will do her absolute best to learn the song for your special day (Sarah has discovered some of her favourite songs through suggestions from brides and grooms).  Musicians for your wedding ceremony and additional singers can also be organised. 

From her cd "The Irish Wedding Album", couples can explore different styles of music and choose the best musician to suit their taste, budget and venue.  You can listen to samples of the cd or download here: www.itunes.com/sarahokennedy
