We found Fionnuala so easy to deal with from the very first contact, right through to the end of her time at the wedding. She is so professional and obliging and her talent is world class. We would highly recommend Fionnuala for an event.

Fionnuala is a wonderful musician and brings a great ambiance to any ceremony. We had a church wedding and her music lit up the church with wonderful contemporary music. All the songs we picked in advance and Fionnuala was even flexible to learn a song on request which played us out.

The harp is not for everyone but it really compliments any ceremony without stealing the show. Also Fionnuala was very reasonable in terms of price compared to alternatives.

Thank you Fionnuala.

We just loved having Fionnuala play at our wedding - the music was beautiful and really added so much to the atmosphere of our drinks reception. She was so personable and helpful to deal with and was the utmost professional on the day. So many of our guests complimented the music in the days after and Fionnuala really adds something unique with her extensive repertoire and can accommodate all tastes and tailor it to your wishes. Only wish we could do it all again! Thanks you so much.

We were married on 5/16/2023 and Fionnuala was our harpist. She was pure perfection. She was early, happily entertained our guests while there was a 20 minute delay to the ceremony, and was absolutely fabulous throughout the ceremony. She has an amazing youtube channel/instagram/facebook/etc where you can listen & watch her play many pieces. She was incredibly responsive and made sure no details were over looked. You can't go wrong with her, everyone loved her!

We booked Fionnuala to play at our ceremony and the reception afterwards and we couldn?t be happier! She is not only extremely talented but very professional and a pleasure to work with. She provided an extensive and diverse repertoire from which to choose our pieces for the ceremony, but was also good enough to learn another piece that we really wanted. Her music was also a delightful addition to the reception afterwards, and got many compliments from our guests. Would highly recommend her.

From the moment we reached out to Fionnuala to play at our humanist wedding ceremony, we got a sense of relief that not only were we in safe hands but that Fionnuala was so open and flexible to our questions and requests for certain musical pieces. This is aside from her incredible talent and command of music.

Her music blew all our wedding guests away on the day and as the bride, that moment of walking in and hearing Fionnuala playing her harp is one I will never forget. It gets me quite emotional thinking about it! Fionnuala even learned a new piece of music we had contacted her about a week before the wedding and when that was played later on in the ceremony, it was really special.

I couldn't recommend Fionnuala enough; from her musical expertise, to flexibility to overall calm demeanour and open approach to dealing with us. She surpassed our expectations and went above and beyond-both in the lead up to our big day and the day itself.

It's wonderful to know and feel you are in safe hands with the run up to your wedding.

We booked Fionnuala for our intimate ceremony in Trinity College Chapel and she was just amazing from start to finish. She was so responsive to all of our emails, has a very comprehensive and helpful booklet of music and was very helpful with music suggestions. We had booked her initially for the harp only but she also sang some songs for us and her voice is just beautiful. She has some samples on YouTube, which really helped us choose our songs for the ceremony. She was even so good as to prompt the priest when he accidentally forgot about the registration part of our ceremony!! She was the ultimate professional and would book her again in an instant. She made our day very special.

We would highly recommend Fionnuala to any future brides and grooms looking for harpist/soprano that will really make their wedding ceremony special. From day one Fionnuala was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is highly professional and incredibly talented. She is also a lovely, friendly person who is a joy to have at your wedding. Everyone commented on how amazing she was and looking back at videos of the day we can see that Fionnuala?s music really elevated the ceremony to make it even more memorable, personal and special. On the day itself, her beautiful and calming harp music really impacted myself and my husband and added so much to the happiness and joy of the day. We can?t thank Fionnuala enough for making our day so special. We wish for every future bride and groom to experience the magic that Fionnuala created at our wedding ceremony. She is a true talent and will bring so so much to you wedding ceremony. We wish Fionnuala every success in the future.

Hi Fionnuala,

I wanted to email and say a MASSIVE thank you for your music on Tuesday. Everyone was blown away by the Harp and it really added something special to our day. I don't think many weddings this year have had live music so it really was a treat to have you play so beautifully.

We have the recording on the ceremony which we watched again last night and I was able to enjoy your music all over again.

I didn't get a chance to say it to you on the day but it was beautiful, thank you.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Very Happy New Year,
Rachel and Sam

My husband and I planned our destination wedding in Ireland at Kilkea Castle from Texas. Planning a wedding overseas can be quite stressful and you must rely on finding amazing vendors to help along the way. Fionnuala was recommended to us by Frog Prince, which we used for our venue styling and florals. We watched many of her YouTube videos prior to the event, and decided to book with her. Once our day finally arrived her music completely blew us away, and was so much better in person than we could have imagined. Everything turned out absolutely perfect and we can't thank Fionnuala enough. Throughout the entire planning and coordination process she was responsive and professional, was flexible with all of our customized requests, and everything went exactly to plan on the wedding day. We must also mention and give her a huge thank you for showing up as the global pandemic was beginning to shut the world down. My husband and I wish we could go back and re-live March 14 over and over again. We highly recommend Fionnuala, you will not be disappointed.

On the day so many of our guests complimented her beautiful playing at the ceremony and at our drinks reception - it really elevated our reception and it was so worth having her there. Hearing her play the opening of 'Can't Help Falling in Love' as I was about to walk down the aisle was one of my favourite moments from the day. She was very fairly priced and I highly recommend her to anyone considering having a harpist be part of their wedding day.

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!

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 was a dream from beginning to end! She was timely and responsive in her emails, which was important as we were planning a destination wedding. She provided a large repertoire but was willing to learn a new melody for the wedding processional. Her actual performance was lovely! She brought a wonderful, ethereal and romantic vibe to the more contemporary songs we had chosen. We had many guests come up to us after hearing her play, saying how perfect she was and what a wonderful element it was to the wedding. Afterwards we talked about the only downside is that we hadn't had her play for longer! Thank you Fionnuala!

For our wedding we were planning in Ireland, I was trying to locate a Harpist / Singer from our home in USA. I found you and then learned you were across Ireland from our Venue. You traveled to the end of the earth for us! It brings tears to me every time I think of it! We are so grateful! Your sweet voice and lovely music will be heard forever in our hearts, you touch our souls! Many, many thanks to you my friend.

Her style of music and her soft harp playing suited the size of our wedding venue perfectly, which was a small, rural church with a small capacity.

What can I say about Fionnuala......she was an absolute dream to deal with.

Communication was excellent and she was so easy to deal with. The whole process was hassle free. Fionnuala sent us a very detailed suggested list of songs and was very cooperative. We found it so easy to choose our songs as she had so many amazing songs to choose from - both traditional and modern.

The harp she uses is so beautiful and really looked amazing in the Church. Her performance on the day had people in tears. Her beautiful voice and sound of the harp made our wedding ceremony so special.

I would highly recommend Fionnuala to anyone, it was such an amazing ceremony.

Fionnuala was extremely accommodating and responsive in the lead up to the wedding and her performance on the day was spectacular. Even now, guests never fail to mention her when reminiscing over the day. It's a once in a life time opportunity and we're delighted we could have her play at it.

Fionnuala sang and played harp and piano at our recent wedding ceremony and drinks reception in Wexford. From start to finish she was so helpful with ideas and suggestions and at the same time she took my ideas on board. She is a real professional! She has such a large repertoire of musical genres to offer. I was so glad she was our musician, she's lovely and she was a key part of our day! She played a blinder. I highly recommend her.

Fionnuala played at our our reception in the gardens of Rathsallagh and it really added such peace and romance after our ceremony. Everyone complimented the music and as a busy Bride & Groom she really made things so simple for us. I was so happy she could play for us, and would certainly recommend her to anyone as she is so professional and friendly. Thanks again!

Words cannot express how moving it is to hear Fionnuala play. Our guests, Irish and American, were all surprised (we hadn't told them she was coming) and blown away. She played a mixture of more traditional wedding pieces (Pachelbel's Canon) and less frequently heard (Deus Meus - Adiuva Me), equally beautifully.

As we developed the mass (reading selections, etc.) for the wedding ceremony, she made it very easy to pair the appropriate music with the different parts of the mass, and gave us feedback along the way.

We highly recommend Fionnuala. Memories of her soulful music on your wedding day, will long outlast other baubles and novelties you may be considering.

Thank you Fionnuala for the beautiful gift of your music on our wedding day.

Fionnuala Monks was simply the most fantastic person to deal with. Our daughter Carol lives in U.K but returned to have her wedding in Ireland. Fionnuala was recommended to us and we were fortunate to be able to engage her . Fionnuala was most helpful in advising and choosing the Music for the ceremony appreciating that we hoped it would be an out-door event. Fionnuala had a major part in an absolutely wonderful day for Carol and Matt , families and guests -many from overseas who were enthralled by the beautiful music and singing throughout the ceremony and at the reception immediately afterwards. As Mum and Dad of the Bride we could not speak highly enough of Fionnuala and sincerely thank her for the kindness and help and of course the beautiful music and singing on the day.
Response from Fionnuala Monks - Harpist and Singer
Audrey was a most delightful Mother of the Bride to deal with .Sometimes i find that the Bride and Groom are just so Busy that they just dont have the time to
do all the preparation so its fantastic when Mum steps in and we can work together to choose the perfect music for the Wedding Day
It was just one of those perfect days sunshine Music and a Wonderful Ceremony in the Garden of Rathsalagh House
Wishing Carol and Matt a long a Happy Life

Fionnuala has such a beautiful voice. We booked her for the church and to be there for the reception at the hotel to greet the guests. She sang and played the harp and I honestly feel that our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without her. Fionnuala's voice is incredible, very magical.

Hi Finnoula - we had the absolute pleasure of having you play and sing at our wedding ten years ago this September - I have been sitting thinking of a personal and memorable wedding gift for my husband to mark this anniversary and was thinking back to the day and the stand out memorable moments and immediately you came to mind. I have had a quick perusal of your website(I say quick but once I saw the music links I have sat nostalgically listening to them all!!!) I was hoping there would be a link to be able to purchase a CD - do you sell cd's of your music as I think this would be the perfect gift for my husband to mark this anniversary.

thanks a million - and thank you again for being such a special part of our day ten years ago - time flys but memories are forever.

kindest regards,

Hi Fionnuala,
I just had to get in touch to say a huge thank you for playing and singing so beautifully at our wedding and at the reception last Friday. We heard so many compliments about you from our guests too so I'm passing them on aswell. Signing the register with you singing and playing 'All I ask of you' from Phantom of the Opera is most definitely a stand out moment for me on the day. Your voice is truely amazing!

Thank you again for making our special day even more special.

Fionnuala was our harpist/soprano at our recent church service in Straffan, Kildare. She was outstanding with the most stunning voice. As we had some guests who had travelled from Jersey and New Zealand, they were particularly impressed by the beautiful tones from her talent as a top harpist. Fionnuala is extremely professional and also, very easy to work with and well worth her fee which is good value for money. Afterwards, at our wedding reception, Fionnuala played some fantastic tunes on the piano as she is also an extremely accomplished pianist. She has a buzzing personality and relaxed way about her which was lovely on the day. Our guests loved her and we received many compliments after the wedding with regard to Fionnuala. I would highly recommend anyone who would like a touch of class and extreme talent, to choose Fionnuala for their wedding.

Hi Fionnuala,

Back to work and reality here after the wedding and time off.

Just a note from myself and Denise to say thank you so much for your wonderful music at our wedding on Valentines Day. Your music and singing added to our ceremony so much and made it that bit more special for us. As the priest said your performance added a ?bit of class? so a big thank you.

Also we have gotten so many complementary comments from the wedding guests about you. Thanks again.


Regards,
