Davey music played during our ceremony and drinks reception. They were truly professional and from our first enquiry we made the whole service was so smooth and easy. We trusted their guidance and the music was so perfect and enjoyable for both us and the guests. Can't recommend them enough!

Such a pleasure working with Davey Music from start to finish. They were very professional and accommodating. We used them for both the service and drinks reception. I would highly recommend them to any couple for their big day.

What can I say about Patrick? He has been a great friend for years and of course it was the easiest decision to have him as part of our music at our wedding. Patrick played along with a number of close friends and nothing was too much. Even when he found out he was organising 16 musicians he took it in his stride and organised practices to ensure everyone knew what they were doing. I picked his own composition 'An Island Lullaby' to walk down the aisle to and to say people are still talking about his pipe playing is an understatement! Patrick made my own traditional group feel at ease and he was more than happy to coordinate the day. Being a fellow musician I would have nothing but the best and Patrick is exactly that. The music at our reception was outstanding and guests are still talking about him. Thank you for making our day so special. Xoxo
Response from Davey Music
Wow Catherine what can I say to that....you are so very kind to leave me such a lovely review, it is deeply appreciated!!!! Your wedding was stunning and it was a huge pleasure to be part of it and to join in with your group of amazing musicians. Thank you again and I wish Dan and you every success, blessing and good fortune for your future together xxxxx

The music at our wedding was absolutely gorgeous - it’s exactly what I wanted! Many of my guests asked who they were so they could recommend them to others. Even when organising the music in advance (we didn’t have too many ideas!), Patrick was able to guide us through the wedding ceremony & advise us on what he thought would sound nice in the church. As it was a Christmas wedding l, he was able to get in a few Christmas tunes! Any changes I wanted to make closer to the day of the ceremony, Patrick was responsive and attentive. I could recommend these guys to anyone!!
Response from Davey Music
What lovely words Alice and Daniel!!! Thank you both very much!! Your wedding was beautiful, being the first of our Christmas season, and your guests were very nice to us as well! Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we wish you both every success for the future. Kind regards, Patrick

We had Davey music at our wedding on 17.11.18 and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was. The musicians also played at our drinks reception and there was lots of foot tapping!! I would highly recommend! Thank you so much

Davey music were brilliant from start to finish and even stayed on and played a bit extra. All our guests commented how lovely the music was and how amazing Roisin's voice was, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone, they definitely added something special to both the service and the reception!
Response from Davey Music
Thanks a million guys for this fantastic review!!!! Your wedding was stunning and we also think that Róisín's voice is amazing!! It was a huge pleasure to play at both your ceremony and drinks reception and we are very grateful to you for taking the time to submit your review. Wishing you every success for your future together. Kind regards xx

5 stars aren’t enough for Patrick and his team at Davey Music. From the moment we made our initial enquiry last October Patrick was extremely engaging and helpful. His, Bronagh and Anna’s talent were there for all to see and they put together an amazing suite for our ceremony and drinks reception, learning some specially chosen movie tunes to supplement their vast and versatile repertoire. Patrick was extremely flexible throughout and handled some last minute changes with the utmost professionalism. His humour and kind nature during our final planning added to our enjoyment of the build up and it was a pleasure to have Bronagh, Anna and himself included in our day. Our guests were equally impressed (with one tune standing out particularly!) and we could not recommend Parick more. We look forward to hopefully seeing him and his musicians again at future friends and family weddings!
Response from Davey Music
Wow what an amazing review guys, we're very grateful!! Thank you for having us to be part of your fabulous day in an amazing venue!! Wishing you both every success and blessing for the future and it would indeed be great to see you at future weddings!! Thanks again for taking the time to submit such an amazing review xx

This is a long review, and that’s because I am still in awe at what Davey Music managed to pull off at my wedding. My sister and I were students of Patrick Davey’s years ago, and Davey Music had done a fantastic job at my sister’s wedding in Belfast in 2016. So, when my fiancé and I were organizing our wedding this year, I was really hoping to get Davey Music to play at ours. But, the big stumbling block was that we were getting married in Spain! I messaged Patrick and asked was there any possibility we could sort something out? After looking into the matter, we both realized that, logistically, it would be too complicated, as well as too expensive. I was disappointed but resigned - I had known when we booked the wedding that getting Davey Music to Spain might prove impossible. In order to have some Irish music, even if it wasn’t what I’d hoped for, we decided to have traditional music playing on the sound system in the background during the reception. Fast forward a few months and there we were, eating lovely Spanish food and enjoying the amazing weather, when all of a sudden Mr Patrick Davey’s voice boomed out of the ceiling with a pre-recorded message for me! I couldn’t believe my ears. How on earth was he on the sound system of a Spanish hotel?! He said he was sorry he couldn’t be there in person but he’d composed a tune in honour of the event and wished us all the very best in our married life. Then he played the tune and the entire place fell silent listening. I was so happy I cried - and then I prayed my makeup would stay the course! (It did, thankfully!) It turns out Patrick had conspired with my fiancé and my dad, not only to get his composition and message played at our wedding without me knowing anything about it, but also to have a beautiful framed copy of the music as well as a CD sent over from Belfast. Davey Music made our wedding day amazing without even being in the same country! Hats off to you, you did a brilliant job! Muchas gracias! The framed composition will have pride of place in our house.
Response from Davey Music
Wow what an amazing review!!!! Thank you so much T for these kind words - it was an absolute pleasure to do that for you on your wedding day and it means the world to know that we were able to 'be there' through the music!!! Wishing you both every blessing and good fortune for your future together xxx

I cannot speak highly enough of Patrick Davey music. He played alongside the beautiful Mairéad Forde and Ellís Lavelle at both our wedding ceremoney and also our drinks reception. From the minute we booked Patrick was extremly helpful and always at hand to answer any of our questions. He listened and understood what music and atmosphere we wanted and worked with us at all times. Aside from the fantastic professional service we recieved from this group, they are extremly talented musicians who played absolutely beautifully throughout our day! We got fantastic feedback from our family and friends after the wedding! So glad we booked and can't recommend highly enough!!
Response from Davey Music
These words are very deeply appreciated Ellen, thank you so very much!! Wishing John and you every success for your future together and thank you for taking the time to submit your review! Regards, Patrick xx

I would not hesitate to recommend Patrick and his group of musicians. The music played during our ceremony was absolutely beautiful - so much so that cried (waterproof mascara is a must!). I opted for harp and flute and so many of our guests commented on how lovely it was!
Response from Davey Music
Hi Brónagh!! Thank you for your kind words, deeply appreciated. It was a huge pleasure to provide the music for your beautiful wedding and we thank you for the invitation to be part of your special day. Wishing Patrick and you every success for the future!! Regards, Patrick xxx

Davey Music provided the most amazing drinks reception music for us at very short notice for our wedding which included a fair bit of travel. Patrick got back to my enquiry promptly and communication is general was second to none. They were both soo friendly on the day and our guests raved about how great they were, would highly recommend
Response from Davey Music
It was our great pleasure Jo and thank you for asking us! I'm delighted we were able to help Dean and you and we were very grateful for the welcome we received from you and your guests, as well as the venue staff...and the ice cream was lovely too!! Wishing you both every success for your future and thank you again for taking the time to write your review. All the best, Patrick xx

Thanks to Paddy Davey music for a brilliant performance at our wedding mass and reception. The music was a lovely backdrop to the drinks reception as our guests arrived to the hotel and we would highly recommend their professional services led by Patrick himself who made the organisation of everything so easy.

Thank you for these lively words Claire and for taking the time to write your review!! It was a great pleasure to be part of your special day and we wish Eoin and you every success for the future. Regards, Patrick xx

When choosing wedding music we looked no further than Davey Music and can honestly say if we could do it again that wouldn't change. We initially met with Patrick to choose our ceremony music, he was extremely helpful and knew exactly which music suited each part of the mass. Davey Music travelled from Belfast to Donegal without hesitation and for that we are so grateful. Patrick, Eilis and Mairead played beautifully throughout the ceremony and our drinks reception. Our guests all really enjoyed the music throughout and commented on how talented and professional the musicians were. We especially loved "The Errigal March" which Patrick personally composed and played for us on our wedding day.
Response from Davey Music
Such beautiful words Danielle and Conor! Your wedding was beautiful too and thank you once again for having us!! Wishing you both every success and blessing for the future xx

Davey music provided a fantastic service from start to finish. The quality of the musicians was brilliant and they offer a very wide range of music to choose from. Contact from Davey music was excellent. A must if you are looking for traditional Irish music! Would highly recommend!

Having Davey music play such an integral part of our wedding day was an easy decision and one we were so happy with! Patrick was a pleasure to work with beforehand and took on board everything we were trying to accomplish on the day, using music to highlight and reflect elements of 'us'. For my wife and I, music plays such a massive part of our lives and it was incredibly important to both of us that it was both spectacular and memorable. And it so was! With me being from Scotland and my wife from NI, Patrick was able to suggest music which complimented both of us, 'marrying' the two together with clever arrangements. So many of our wedding guests complimented the beauty of the music in the service and found it to be one of the many highlights of the day. For the service we opted for harp, flute, tin whistle, fiddle, uilean pipes and bagpipes. It was so lovely to have traditional Irish and Scottish instruments performing, especially since they'd be instruments which some of our guests wouldnt typically have the opportunity to embrace and enjoy. In the evening we opted for a ceili provided by The Blackstaff Ceili Band - the dance floor was never empty! We'd highly recommend Davey music to couples in search of the perfect music to compliment their perfect day! Thank you. Xx
Response from Davey Music
Such lovely words guys - we are humbled!!! It was a huge pleasure to be part of your very special day and we thank you for inviting us to play such an important role. Wishing you every possible success for the future xxxx

We had a trio of harp, fiddle and Patrick switching between flute and Uilleann Pipes depending on what was most appropriate for the music. The music was absoluely beautiful in the church and Patrick was very helpful with suggesting a mixture of appropriate liturgical and folk music for the mass with quick email responses. He was more than happy to learn new songs and we absolutely loved their version of 'stars' from les mis as i walked down the aisle! They also travelled to Ballymagarvey to play during our reception, everyone commented on how fantastic the music was, very talented musicians and can't thank them enough for the atmosphere they provided at our wedding!
Response from Davey Music
Thank you for these lovely words Emma!! Your wedding was very special as it was our fist visit to Ballymagarvey so thank you again for having us and we wish Andrew and you every success for your future together. Regards, Patrick xx

I found Patrick through an entertainment agency and they were able to put me in touch with him via email to discuss my requests. From the beginning Patrick was extremely easy to liaise with and more than happy to accommodate my requests! On the day the music was sensational. Everyone commented on how wonderfully talented and friendly the musicians had been. They played our ceremony and also drinks reception. It was such beautiful weather that we asked Patrick and the girls if they would mind playing out in the garden and they were happy to do this. The musical backdrop was lovely and really added to the ambience. We had wanted a Trad feel to our day and they certainly provided this. They were also able to change instruments to suit various songs. I would highly recommend Patrick Davey’s Traditional Trio to anyone who is contemplating this genre of music at their wedding! X
Response from Davey Music

I would highly recommend Davey music - they were very professional, friendly and helpful throughout the planning process. Patrick met with us a couple of times before the date including visiting the venue with us to check it over and was happy to accommodate our request to play outside. On the day, we were delighted with the music for the ceremony, drinks and meal - it added a really special touch.
Response from Davey Music

Patrick, Mairead and Eilís played for our wedding yesterday at St Brigid's, Ballintra and Lough Eske Castle. They were fantastic - true professionals and such talented musicians. The music was perfect; our guests have all commented that it was a real highlight of the day. Patrick was excellent to work with from start to finish. Would highly recommend!

Patrick and his musicians were absolutely brilliant on our wedding day. They played both our ceremony and drinks reception and we got so many compliments on the music. From day 1 Patrick was so easy to work with and gave us loads of great suggestions and tips when choosing our music. Nothing was ever a bother and he was so quick and responsive to emails. We would highly recommend Davey Music to anyone planning a wedding. Thanks for everything, Michelle & Stuart x

It's taken me so long to get around to writing this review, but I was waiting on my wedding video so I could relive the beautiful music. We had Davey Music at our wedding, and from the first time I contacted them to the very day they were a dream to work with. Their music was so beautiful all my guests commented on it. They made every effort to include any songs which were special to us and I couldn't imagine my ceremony any other way. Highly recommend!!!
Response from Davey Music
Wow thank you so much Jenny for these lovely words!! We’re thrilled that you enjoyed our music and we are very grateful to you for taking the time to post your review! We wish Tobias and you every success for the future and thank you again. Kind regards, Patrick

I can't say enough to express my gratitude to Patrick and his colleagues for the wonderful music which was provided for my daughter's wedding. They set the mood for the whole day with the beautiful music during the ceremony. I know Patrick worked with Ciara to choose just the right material for this very special occasion and i was certainly moved to tears during Ciara's entrance. The guests were blown away at the drinks reception -We couldn't have asked for better entertainment for Ciara and Peter's special day. Thanks to Patrick, Mairéad and Eilis for being part of our wonderful day. I would highly recommend Davey Music to anyone planning their wedding day.
Response from Davey Music
Many thanks Christine, Ciara and Peter for the great privilege of providing the music for your wedding and drinks reception. You were very kind to us and we were delighted to be able to contribute to your day. We very much appreciate the kind review too - thank you! Regards, Patrick

We had Patrick and the girls play the trio of harp, fiddle and flute during our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in December. The music they played during our ceremony was quite simply stunning! They even learned our favourite song to play aswell. The beauty their music added to our ceremony was irreplaceable, I can't imagine our day without that sound now. They also took some great snaps aswell! During the drinks reception they created an awesome fun atmosphere with upbeat reels. They were also great value for both parts of the wedding. I can't recommend Davey music enough. Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect for us. Emma & Brian
Response from Davey Music
Such lovely words Emma & Brian, thank you both very much! Your wonderful Christmas wedding was definitely one to remember, especially as it brought us to two of our favourite venues!! Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we wish you both every success for your future. Thanks again, Patrick xx

Patrick was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding music was personal and memorable. Patrick and his beautiful musicians travelled in December in dangerous, icy conditions from Belfast to the Glens of Antrim and made the day for us. Couldn’t recommend him and his musicians enough!
Response from Davey Music
Thank you Catherine & James for these very kind words!! What a stunning winter wonderland wedding you had, it was a huge pleasure to be part of it and thank you for asking us. Wishing you both every success and blessing for your future.

Couldn’t have been happier with the service provided by Davey Music - Patrick himself was a charmer and nothing was too much trouble (even the late addition of a singer) Patrick was happy to take on board our ideas as well as guiding us with his own. Our guests complimented the ceremony music which was nothing short of perfection in our eyes! Truly talented musicians, I would recommend without hesitation time and time again!
Response from Davey Music
Hi Niamh, many thanks for these lovely words - first time I've been described as a 'charmer'! It was our great pleasure to provide the music for your beautiful wedding ceremony and we are delighted to learn that you are so pleased with the service we provided to Malachy and you. Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we hope you have an amazing 2018. Thanks again, Patrick

We could not have been happier with Davey Music. We are based in the United States, which made organizing our wedding in Fermanagh a little tricky. Davey Music was responsive and helpful, and on the day, the music couldn't have been better.

Hi Patrick At last we have settled down after the wedding and find time to contact you to say a great thank you for your fabulous entertainment for the wedding of Donna and Duncan.

Thank you so much for your performance at the Chapel and Reception of our wedding. The music was beautiful and really made my celtic wedding.

I couldn't have asked for better and I am recommending to everyone. Thanks a million!! Olivia & Brian

Back in January 2017 I had set about finding a group to play at our wedding, when I stumbled upon Davey Music on Facebook. I sent them an email and that's where it all began. From our very first correspondence Patrick couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. He has helped us by putting together the perfect groups to provide the soundtrack to our wedding day. Everyone I spoke to on the day commented on how well the band sounded and how absolutely perfect it fitted into our theme. My new wife and I really cannot recommend Davey Music enough for your wedding music needs. Thanks again to Patrick and co. for helping to make our day perfect. Mr+Mrs Whittaker

The service we received from Davey Music was top class. Patrick was in regular contact on the run up to our big day to ensure our needs were met with the choice of music.

We had Davey Music at our wedding Ceremony & Drinks Reception and we were delighted with the music provided. Patrick was great in helping us choose the hymns for the ceremony and was so accommodating in how we wanted them played and the singing was beautiful. The drinks reception was lively and as we missed out on so much as we were away getting photographs we cannot wait to watch back in our video. Our guests enjoyed the traditional music sitting relaxing before their meal and we have had so many compliments from guests how good Davey Music were. Fantastic service, value for money and honestly couldn't meet nicer people. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day that little bit more special. Xx Mr & Mrs Corrigan/29th July 2017

From the outset, Patrick was extremely professional, responsive and helpful in the planning stages. We didn't really have much of a clue regarding song choices for either the ceremony itself, the drinks reception or for while we were having dinner, however Patrick was able to guide us through, suggesting what he thought might suit each stage. As it turned out Davey Music's contribution to our special day was incredible. The music and hymns they played and sang during the ceremony were beautiful. The drinks reception was lively and entertaining and during dinner it provided a lovely atmosphere. All our guests commented on how excellent they were and I really couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thank you for making our special day even more special.

We hired Davey music for our wedding ceremony and were absolutely delighted with the service they provided. The music was just as we had imagined and really added to the lovely atmosphere in the church. Patrick was great to deal with and gave us a lot of help with organising the music. He responded to all our queries quickly, met with us before the ceremony to go through our music choices and liaised with our friend who sang a song for us at the wedding. The beautiful music provided by Davey music played a really important part in making our wedding service so special and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other people getting married.

We got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony, Patrick played every song we asked for from romantic classics to current chart music. Any request was never too much. He was quick in responding to any queries I had and even sent me through a recorded practice to listen to before our big day. I have had several guests ask me for their details and it's only been 2 day! Thank you Patrick and the gang for making our ceremony so special!!! Emily and gareth xx

I would highly recommend Patrick and his fella musicians. He was such a lovely person to deal with. He responded to all our queries immediately and made us feel reassured in our choices of music for our ceremony and evening reception. The music itself was beautiful and fitting for both our ceremony, the harpist for the champagne reception and then the traditional music for later in the evening. Patrick is wonderful at what he does and selected lovely musicians to accompany him for our wedding.

We could not have been more delighted with Davey Music on our wedding day. We are both musicians and music lovers, so choosing the musicians for our ceremony and drinks reception was very important. We had a harp, fiddle and uilleann pipes. I am Irish and my husband is French so it was great to have Irish musicians for both my Irish family and the the visiting French family. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed the music, and especially during the ceremony when there were a few tears it was so beautiful. Patrick is very quick to respond to messages and he is very accommodating - at the last minute my friend was unable to play for the ceremony and it was no trouble at all to ask him to play the ceremony too. The group also learned a new piece of music for my entrance, again Patrick was very accommodating and it was no trouble to them. A big thank you to Patrick, Mairéad and Eilís for creating a beautiful musical ambience to our special day.

We hired Davey Music for our Ceremony and Drinks reception and could not recommend them enough. From the day we contacted them they where quick to reply to any questions or queries we had for them. Patrick (our main contact for Davey music) introduced himself and the band as he arrived and took a real interest in our day everyone was friendly and professional. They played as the guests arrived for the ceremony setting a brilliant mood for the day to come and our ceremony music was exactly what we asked for and beautiful. We where off getting photos taken during the drinks reception but have had nothing but great reviews from our friends. I highly recommend them to make your Special day even more so.

Very happy to give Davey Music 5 stars across the board. From first contact with Patrick (our contact within Davey music) we were very impressed with their professionalism, flexibility and attention to detail. Patrick gave us some tips and advice on several occasions and was very accommodating when we asked for songs not on their sample list. On the day, they arrived well before the ceremony started, and continued to play until all of the guests had left at the end. Personally I felt that having traditional Irish musicians added so much to the ceremony and really was head and shoulders above your standard keyboard player and singer. Top marks guys. Highly recommended!

My husband and I have strong ties to both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, so even though we were getting married in Texas, we wanted to include some traditional music for the festivities. Davey Music created and recorded a special song just for us—a combination of a traditional Irish melody and a Texas folk song—and it was such a delightful surprise! I can’t sing the praises of Patrick and his Davey Music team highly enough. They added a truly unique and beautiful memory to our special day.

For our wedding we knew that we wanted some Classical & Traditional musical elements for our ceremony – Davey Musicians were a perfect fit. Patrick was so great to deal with, and worked with us in a professional, calm, relaxed and very flexible manner. We had Patrick on the flute, and his fellow musicians on harp and violin and it was perfect! I walked down the aisle to Gabriel’s Oboe, and it was just beautiful. I asked my brother if he would sing and play his guitar for one of the songs, and Patrick and the girls had no problem with learning Beyoncé’s ‘Halo’ a couple of days before the wedding! They arrived early to rehearse it with my brother and when they played, it was breath taking and so moving. Most of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was, and in particular that one piece – as one person said ‘it was so moving, you could hear a pin drop!’ So ‘thank you’ Patrick for making our ceremony so personal and special. If you are looking for great wedding musicians, I would whole-heartedly recommend Davey Music!

At Alex and Robert's wedding Patrick and his wonderful musicians played in Kilmood Church and at the drinks reception in the courtyard at TullVeery House.The music was beautiful and the musicians delightful. They added greatly to a wonderful day and I could not recommend them highly enough.

We cannot commend Davey Music enough for helping our wedding to be more than perfect. All guests commented and thoroughly enjoyed the music and ambience created. Prior to service, we meet Patrick to discuss music choices and his experience shone through, his choice of arrangement was just right. All 3 musicians involved were truly excellent and set the tone for the day. Many thanks.

Patrick could not do enough for us, first of all we had a meeting to discuss what music we wanted, he give us a demo of different Instruments with different songs. Over the following weeks we contacted each other through emails and phone calls to iron out what we wanted with one item we thought was a big deal but it turned out it was not to them,we had a song we would liked played but it was not known to Patrick, he said no problem get me the music I will learn it and play it for you and so he did beautifully. On the day of the wedding our celebrant altered the run of the mass slightly again they took it in their stride and just went with it, we also got them to play at our drinks reception for us with a trad feel to it to get the party started and it really worked we can not recommend Davey music enough and if you are lucky enough to have them play at your wedding you will definitely not be disappointed Thank you so much for helping to make our day Davey music Trea & Kevin

Patrick and his team played at our ceremony and drinks reception. They made our ceremony really special and played perfectly from start to finish. The planning was very smooth with great response via emails and a meeting with Patrick. Patrick and his team even learned a jig that was written in memory of my dad. It was really hard to find some good traditional music for our wedding. We made the best choice with Davey Music! Our guests loved it. You really made our day extra special and we cannot thank and recommend you enough. Fionnuala & Michael.

Patrick and the rest of the musicians were absolutely fantastic on the day. Music is such an important thing for us, and to have it played so beautifully, made our wedding day extra special. A pleasure to work with, extremely professional and also very calming to be around. Picking music beforehand was also extremely easy. Patrick had everything organised, lots of experience to offer with arrangement and choice, which made everything so much easier. Highly recommended, a true gentleman and a pleasure to have him be part of our day

I felt very lucky to have Davey music play at our wedding. Patrick was a pleasure to deal with. He provided a beautiful selection of music. He liaised with the priest ahead of the service and left us feeling that the music was entirely taken care of. Many of our guests commented on the music and it made our service very special. Highly, highly recommend Davey music.

As a musician myself, who plays at a lot of weddings, I like to think that I have some experience with how the band can influence proceedings. In the right hands, the band rounds off the perfect day, bringing together the whole wedding party. In the wrong hands it can be a disaster! Patrick and his team gave us a night we will remember for ever, for all the right reasons! The quality of the music was superb, Patrick's attention to detail and professionalism were top notch and they were fantastic value for money. One of my biggest bugbears of playing at weddings is bridal couples who want to plan every element of the bands set. A good band will have the experience to judge the audience and Patrick's team did a fantastic job on this. I asked for a family Ceilidh that would cater for ages 4-94. They got this spot on. The band had the whole wedding party dancing all night and the highlight for me was how they brought the whole evening, and the entire wedding party, together. I would whole heartedly recommended Davey Music to anybody. Paul

Patrick and his very talented group provided us with the most incredible music at our wedding. All our guests were blown away by the stunning quality of the traditional instrumental pieces and all the hymns were sung beautifully. We couldn't have asked for more. With his extensive knowledge and experience, Patrick helped us to create the perfect score for the day. The memories will last a lifetime.

Thank you for these kind words Kevin! Much appreciated.

We were married in July 2015 in Castle Leslie. I knew exactly what type of music I wanted at my wedding, very Irish traditional, & Davey Music certainly delivered. Having heard a few pieces from their website I contacted Patrick who was extremely helpful & accommodating. He even recommended certain songs & was able to perform anything I had suggested...a real personal touch. Can I also recommend Davey Musics male singer Eamon. Oh my word he blew everyone away. He was amazing!!! He sang in Irish & it was just so beautiful. We had the violin, tin whistle, the harp, & the pipes...the music in the chapel was breath taking...our priest, Father Brown, said it was the best he had heard for a long long time! Davey Music also played at our drinks reception in Castle Leslie. The atmosphere was fantastic, & they really got everyone in the mood, plus it was very fitting to our surroundings. I really cannot praise Davey Music enough, they were absolutely fantastic, & I've still remained friends with Patrick...which in my opinion says a lot. If you're after elegant, professional, breath taking, 'hair stand up' , Irish traditional music, then Davey Music is without a doubt the best in the business.

From the moment I contacted Patrick about conducting the music at my wedding he was of the greatest help. We met up with him not really knowing what songs and music we wanted but he gave us options, even took out instruments and played tunes for us, and was most efficient and helpful. He really showed a genuine keeness to be involved and accomodate us in every way. On the wedding day the quality of the musicians and singer was first class, all the guests were passing comment about how beautiful and moving the music was , a couple if future brides even asked me for his details. Very professional from start to finish and a lovely man. So pleased to have had them part of our special day

Thanks a million Gary & Ann, lovely to read such nice feedback!

The service that Davey music provided for our wedding was exceptional. Patrick has an extensive knowledge of music and was able to provide us with advice and options, when we were choosing the music for our service. The Daveys are so friendly and they made the musical aspect of our ceremony completely stress free. The music on the day of our wedding was so beautifully performed that many of our guests commented on how moving they found it. As I was walking down the aisle, I remember listening to the pipes and thinking how emotionally fitting it all was. Music is such an important element of creating the right atmosphere in a wedding mass and the Davey music team really delivered more than what we could have hoped for. It was absolutely perfect.

For our wedding on 31st May 2014 Patrick and his extremely talented team played harp & flute both in the church and at our reception venue , I cannot recommend them highly enough in terms of organisation, professionalism , talent & friendliness ! Great value for money also and in my opinion we would have paid more , many of our guests commented on their beautiful music & it really added to the relaxed , amazing atmosphere on our special day. My entrance to the church to pachelbels canon in D major was a particular highlight! Thanks again.
Response from Davey Music
So glad you enjoyed our musical contribution Kate! Thanks for your kind words.

When Patrick plays at your wedding time slows down and allows you to relax and still your thoughts. His music is breath taking and he has so much experience. I left all the music choices up to him and his choices were perfect. Even my husband who was a bag of nerves calmed down and just listened to the music. I still get goosebumps reminiscing about how he made the church service so magical.

Thank you so much Marianne, your kind words are deeply appreciated!

We hired Davey Music for our wedding. The music was exquisite. We enjoyed every moment of the service. Davey Music involved us in all aspects of planning and choosing the music. This was extremely important to us. We were able to attend a pre-event recital, which really helped in our choice of music. Their calm and flexible approach took all the worry and hassle out of our wedding planning. We have used Davey Music for many celebrations since then and have recommended them to friends.
Response from Davey Music
Very deeply appreciated guys, thank you very much!! Yours was a particularly special day for us and we're delighted to hear you still remember the music so fondly. Kind regards xxx
