To any couple looking for a singer who can tailor his performance to any type of wedding, you are in very safe hands! Doug was perfect for our intimate humanist service. His pace, ability to read the crowd and upbeat personality will bring happiness to your wedding ceremony and/or reception drinks. His voice gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it and we couldn't believe our luck he was free for our date. Book him before you miss out!

Doug sang for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in December and was absolutely unbelievable!! He learned a song especially for us to walk up the aisle to and it was flawless. Everyone was talking about how he got the mood of the whole day 'just right'. To top it off he's a genuinely nice guy too. I'd definitely recommend him!!!

We just want to say a huge thank you to Doug for playing at our wedding ceremony and reception you were amazing and helped make our day exceptional. Everyone commented on how talented you were and how much they enjoyed listening to you in both the church and drinks reception. I am still getting asked for the name of the church singer. Your voice is amazing!

We were lucky enough to have Doug sing at both our wedding ceremony and our drinks reception. To say that he added to our experience of the day is a huge understatement. Doug's voice (you can hear for yourself by watching his videos online) but also his reading of the room and understanding of what our guests wanted to hear was excellent. We had friends and relatives make a point of speaking to us before and after the meal to compliment the music at both points of the day. That was just the day itself, Doug was also really quick to respond to any queries and also accommodated us in learning a song specifically for our exit. I truly can't recommend him enough. If you're thinking about booking him, do it!!

We booked Doug straight away after hearing him perform at our friends wedding. Doug's version of 'The Vow' was so beautiful as I walked down the aisle with my dad. At one point during the ceremony he got all of our guests singing along with him to 'Is this Love'. It was just so incredible to witness and definitely brought a lump to both of our throats to hear all our loved ones joining in. Doug is so incredibly talented and we are so blessed that he performed at our big day. All of our family and friends commented on how talented he was and how they thoroughly enjoyed listening to him perform at the ceremony and the drinks reception afterwards. He has a wealth of knowledge and really helped us create the perfect set list for our ceremony, which really did set the tone for the day. He was a pleasure to deal with and we would 110% recommend him to anyone who is getting married or looking for a musician.

We booked Doug to play at our wedding in the Cliff Townhouse. From the start he was an absolute pleasure to deal with and couldn’t be more helpful. He played at our ceremony, drinks reception and after the meal and he was absolutely brilliant. Our guests are still talking about how good he was. We couldn’t recommend him more and he was huge part of making our day brilliant.

Doug sang at both our wedding ceremony and reception in November. Doug’s voice says it all so be sure to check out his videos online. His music brought such a nice vibe to our ceremony and he also was great in helping to advise on song choices and where our song choices would suit best during the ceremony. So many guests came to us to compliment Doug’s entertainment at the wedding reception too, he brought a great buzz to the day with a lively set.

Hi Doug, Just writing to say thanks so much for Saturday. We had a perfect day and your songs were amazing, so many people were telling us how great you were so I reckon your YouTube views will go up this week ???? We really enjoyed it and hopefully we get to hear you play again at another wedding in the future when we’re a bit less distracted. All the best, Emmet & Laura
Response from Doug Sheridan Ceremony and Drinks Reception Music
Hey Emmet & Laura, Thanks so much for the review, really appreciate it! Hope an awesome day/night was had in our fine city. Delighted you & your guests were happy with the music. Here's wishing you all the best for the future & congratulation again, yes hopefully I'll be playing at a wedding near you soon. Thanks again!

My wife Kate and I hired Doug for the reception of our wedding on the bank holiday weekend in October last year in the Royal College of Physicians Ireland on Kildare Street for a Humanist ceremony. Doug was an outstanding choice and we still have guests praising him when we look back at the wedding months later. He was a crucial part in creating the brilliant atmosphere we hoped for and achieved on the day. He was a joy to deal with and we'd have no hesitation recommending him for similar events. EDIT: I had to add that his rendition of The Cranberries' 'Dreams' as my wife walked down the aisle was beautiful (as was his performance of Thin Lizzy's 'Dancing in the Moonlight')!

Of all the decisions we made and the things we selected for our wedding day, choosing Doug was by far the best. The performances were beautiful and Doug was able to read the ceremony perfectly to ensure that things kicked in and out at precisely the right moments. We had tons of compliments about him on the day and on a personal level I found him really engaged. I recall catching his eye during his performance of one of our favourite songs and it made it feel so much more personal. The entire room including our celebrant applauded each song and rightly so. Doug was so relaxed and accommodating ahead of the day, he really understood what we were going for and gave us invaluable advice about how best to achieve it. All done with minimum stress and fuss which is exactly what you need when all the planning can drive you crazy. Outstanding value too, by far the best money spent for the day. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Doug sang at our wedding on 31st August 2019. Without doubt, he was one of the best highlights from the day. We had so many guests come up to us afterward complimenting him and when he sang our song for us, it’s probably one of those special memories that we’ll always hold on to. We can’t recommend him enough. Honestly, without hesitation, we can say booking him will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
Response from Doug Sheridan Ceremony and Drinks Reception Music
Thanks so much for the review Eoin. A pleasure to sing at you & Grace's wedding. I would've loved to sing Mid Air in full, I must record it someday properly. Hope all is going great for you guys. Thanks again for everything.

We choose Doug to perform our wedding on the 26th Aug 2019. I think it says a lot that I have never left a review in my life however felt completely obliged after Doug’s perfect performances at both the ceremony and drinks reception. All we can say is that you will not be disappointed and his voice is top class. Our friends and family all highlighted the music as being of the highest level.

Doug sang at our wedding in April and was excellent. All of our guests commented that one of the highlights of the day was listening to Doug sing outside in the sunshine during the drinks reception. From first contact to the wedding day all of the planning with Doug was very easy and nothing was a problem. The advice he gave on selecting songs for the ceremony was very helpful and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a singer for an event

Thanks a million Ciaran. Likewise you & Trish were a pleasure to deal with. Hope all is going great for you both

Cannot rate Doug highly enough. We organised our wedding at home from Australia and Doug replied to any emails straight away. He answered any questions we had and had really helpful advice. We wanted a few songs that were bit different as well than the usual and Doug was more than happy to help with that for the ceremony and reception. All our guests raved about him - my one regret is we didn't get to hear more of him at the reception when we were off having photos etc! I think I actually preferred his version of some of the songs than the original artists!!!

Heard Doug play for the first time at my sisters wedding and immediately knew that i wanted him to play at my wedding. Unbelievable voice. Made the church ceremony very special for us. Went through a whole list of suggested suitable songs for the church and helped choose the list of songs for the ceremony. Then Played a wide variety of older and newer songs at the reception in the hotel...again, he was unbelievable. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking for a male solo singer at the ceremony/reception.

Hi Doug, Just wanted to belatedly drop a line to say thanks a mill for the music on our wedding day. We were really looking forward to hearing you in person and you did not disappoint! As mentioned we both love our music and the musician and song choice was really important to us. We could not have been happier with it on the day. Thanks for all your guidance on song choice as well - you knew exactly what to do. We loved "nothing else matters" - I was so happy we included that. Loads of our guests commented on how good you were which we were delighted to hear. Thanks again - we wish you the very best of luck in your career and business.

From the minute people were leaving the church to today they have been saying how fantastic you were and how talented. I definitely think it was one of the highlights of the day for everyone so thanks. You saw us standing on the altar waiting for your song to finish so we could hear the next one and not miss it, so that says it all!! Best of luck with your own big day and thanks again.

Firstly we would like to say a big THANK YOU for making our wedding day that extra bit special. We knew your voice was good from your website but nothing prepared us for how amazing it was to hear you sing live. Absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!! Your voice reduced family and friends to tears....in a good way!!! I had to fight to hold them back...ruin my make-up haha. "A Voice That Would Please The Angels"........is an understatement!!! In years to come they'll ask us what were the best moments of our wedding day, and you Doug will be mentioned, over and over again.
