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.

We cannot speak too highly of Fionnuala. From day 1 she was friendly, professional and creative. She helped us put together a musical package which WOW'd our guests and was the perfect musical accompaniment to our wedding in the Westbury Hotel. Fionnuala is not only an accomplished harpist but has a beautiful singing voice. We've no hesitation in recommending Fionnuala to anybody else taking the plunge! Thanks Fionnuala. Rhona & Ciaran

Fionnuala was a wonderful addition to our wedding day. She was very helpful while we chose the music for our ceremony and put me at ease about the whole process. 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 was a joy to work with from start to finish. It was enjoyable listening to her music online and deciding on the final song choices. She was flexible with some of our personal choices and we appreciated her feedback as regards what songs would work well. She played in a beautiful and understated manner on the day. Fionnuala's beautiful music made the ceremony extra special. It gave us goose bumps to listen to her music and even now, over a year later, her harp playing is one of the nicest memories we have of our wedding day. Lots of guests also commented on how excellently she played.

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 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 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!

Dear Fionnuala, I cannot thank you enough! I fell in love with you and your music the first time I heard you. 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. Love and Kisses, Paula and Michael

Fionnuala is simply amazing. Her music and her wonderful voice simply created a magic atmosphere that I will never forget and that I could not describe through words. Not only our guests, but also other suppliers are still talking about her amazing performance. Since the very first email sent to her, she was very helpful and listened carefully to what we wanted and she was there giving advices when we were in doubt choosing songs. I highly recommend Fionnuala, there won't be enough words to describe how amazing her performance was. Thank you again!!!!

Fionnuala was just superb from start to finish. She was a pleasure to deal with. Her music added so much to our special day. When she performed Pie Jesu, as we were singing the wedding register it was like a fairytale! All of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. 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. Fionnuala also played at our drinks reception, providing relaxing music whilst we enjoyed pre reception drinks with our family and guests.I couldn’t recommend Fionnuala highly enough.

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. Janna and Ryan

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.

We were so delighted to have Fiona play at the church and wedding reception. The guests were very impressed with her range of talents. She played the harp and sang at the church and played the piano at the reception. Fiona was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend her.

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,
Jennifer and Darren

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, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for your beautiful music at the church on our wedding. It really was great and everyone commented on how lovely it was. You were so easy to deal with and I always felt assured that we were in good hands. With everything that was going on I never got to actually say hello but am very grateful of your input to our special day, and would recommend you to anyone looking for a singer or harpist. Thanks again

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,
