Gavin truly is a wonderful addition to any wedding day, all these months later my favourite memory of the day is sitting on the altar after communion listening to his stunning and haunting (in a good way!!) rendition of The Rose and taking it all in. It was just how I imagined it and better, he is a wonderful performer. Guests were talking about his church music all evening, and his lively performance on arrival at the venue added to the wonderful atmosphere. I would have no hesitation recommending Gavin to anyone. He assisted with song choices, advising on order and providing suggestions where I had gaps. I could have listened to him all day.

Gavin was fantastic to work with. He learnt two songs for us and played them to perfection. He was very professional from start to finish and guided us in the layout of music. We had lots of compliments on the music throughout the day. I would highly recommend Gavin.

We hired Gavin as our ceremony and drinks reception musician for our wedding and we were absolutely delighted with him! He was friendly, approachable, easy to contact and very flexible on the day! The music was fantastic, overall we were very happy and would highly recommend him.

Gavin sang and played for our wedding on 30th June 2016 in Fethard, Co Tipperary. What a beautiful voice. His voice complemented the church's acoustics. Our guests, who came from Australia, America and Zimbabwe and beyond and were in awe of his talent and repertoire. We especially liked his rendition of Waltzing Matilda and Slievenamon. He was punctual and prepared and I would highly highly recommend him.

Absolutely amazing!

We booked Gavin to sing at our wedding and I have to say he was absolutely amazing, he put his heart and soul into making it as special and unique as possible. He learned a classical piece especially that I wanted as the bridal entrance and nothing was too much trouble for him. Everybody loved the music, even the photographer took his card. A true gentleman who I'd highly recommend

Gavin performed at our Wedding last month. He was amazing from start to finish from booking, arranging the music prior to the wedding and on the day. Gavin was in contact with us through email and phone a number of times before the big day and was very accommodating and flexibile with what we wanted as I requested him to play up to a certain part in the entrance song which he done beautifully. (I even cried hearing it when I got to top of alter) My guests also commented on his music and singing and I am sorry I did not get him to sing at the reception in the hotel also.

Gavin was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He is a very talented gentleman. We had people commenting on how talented he is. we had him play at the church and at our reception and he is so versatile. I would highly recommend him to all you brides and grooms to be!! Best of luck for your big day ????

we got married on 22nd of august 2015. Gavin was absolutely brilliant throughout. right from the moment we booked him he was in constant contact.would book him again. the comments we got back from guests was fantastic.
Review by
Gavin was brilliant for our wedding. He offered loads of advise on the run up to the wedding and on the day he had learned our favourite songs for walking up the aisle which made it really specially. Couldn't recommend him enough all our friends and family commented on how good he was! Thanks again Gavin!
Review by
Gavin sang at our wedding on the 6th June. We were absolutely delighted with the service we received from Gavin, we can not fault him or his work at all! He had no issue learning new songs for us and was also very helpful throughout our song choosing process! You should not hesitate in booking him, you won't be disappointed!
Review by
I was looking specifically for a male solo singer for our wedding ceremony in December 2014. I came across Gavin and knew straight away from his professional and quick response that he was the perfect choice for us. We had some specific songs that we wanted to have included in our ceremony and it was absolutely no problem to Gavin to incorporate them into the set for us. Nothing was a problem and the communication and professionalism from Gavin was super all along. My husband and I were delighted with Gavin's wonderful performance on the day and he sang our choice of songs to perfection. He adjusted his performance to suit the small venue we had and many of our guests complimented Gavin. Gavin stayed on after our ceremony and played for our pre-dinner drinks reception and as promised he kept everyone's toes tapping! It was such a relief to have someone so professional and approachable on our wedding day. I knew I didn't have to worry at all about the music, Gavin had it all under control from the start. We would highly recommend Gavin if you are looking for a friendly, professional and talented musician and singer for your wedding! Karolyn & Kieran

Gavin was recommended by my sister who saw him sing at her friend's wedding. Once we looked at his videos and read the reviews we booked him immediately. He was very professional, friendly and made sure he kept in touch on the run up to the wedding. He played a stellar set at the ceremony and covered our requests flawlessly. We had many people compliment our choice in ceremony musician and we were delighted with him. We would gladly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Gavin.

Gavin sang at our wedding in Shankill in September of this year. Gavin was a true pleasure to deal with in both the lead up to the day and the day itself. Gavin went out of his way to help us with our choice of music for the ceremony and most importantly we were both so delighted with his performance on the day. We had so many people comment on how excellent Gavin's music was at the ceremony and in particular his amazing rendition of First Day of Our Life. We couldn't recommend Gavin highly enough to anyone!
Review by
Gavin did an amazing job at our wedding in September. We had a traditional church wedding with a mix of traditional church and modern music. Gavin learned a new song for my entrance which made the day so much more special. I could not recommend him enough. Thanks for helping to make our day so special Gavin.
Review by
Gavin did a great job at our wedding last month. We didn't have a traditional church wedding but had a civil ceremony followed by lunch and then a drinks reception and evening party. Gavin played some songs we had selected for the ceremony, and then he played background music for a couple of hours at our drinks reception in the hotel later that day. Everyone in our party complimented the music, and that it perfectly suited the relaxed atmosphere we wanted to have on the day. I'd definitely hire Gavin again and couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Review by
It was a true pleasure to have Gavin sing at our big day in Shankill in September. Obviously most importantly the music was exactly as we wanted but we also have to say Gavin was fantastic to deal with in both the lead up to the day and the day itself. We had so many comments on how great the music was and in particular Gavin's rendition of the First day of Our life for the signing of the register which was just perfect for the occasion. We could not recommend Gavin highly enough!
Review by
Gavin did a terrific job singing at our church wedding, everyone was saying how good he was after. Everything from booking him to picking the songs we wanted went so smoothly and he was happy to sing all the songs we wanted. I'm so happy he was part of our day and I would recommend him to any bride and groom looking for a great singer that is very easy to work with and extremely nice.
Review by
Hi Gavin, Thank you very much for the wonderful singing you did at our wedding ceremony - many of the guests commented on your fab voice! I think organising a church ceremony can seem quite daunting when you start but Gavin made great suggestions and steered us in the right direction the whole way along, he was also a great help during the ceremony when the priest went of track ever so slightly!! We highly recommend Gavin and will do to any of our friends who ask us Thank you again
Review by
Thanks Gavin for doing our wedding ceremony music in the Lyrath Hotel. Everybody commented on how good the music was. Everything ran very smoothly. Gavin was very professional, highly recommended. Thanks Gavin, Laura

Gavin did an amazing job singing at our service, music was really moving all our guests commented on Wat a great job he did. Another thing I was delighted with was how easy gavin is to deal with, really accommodating, nothing was an effort for him and I felt he had everything under control I didn't need to worry about anything. I would highly recommend him, he really is fantastic!!
Review by
Gavin was an absolute pleasure to deal with, he was a true gent. The music in the church was really something else, everybody was commenting on how fantastic it was and some even saying a few songs brought them to tears! I was so happy with it all & Im lucky to have it all captured on my wedding video. If you are looking for exceptional music for your wedding at very reasonable pricing I would have no hesitations in recommending Gavin. Out of this world, thanks Gavin, we will be forever grateful.
Review by
Just to say Gavin was super on the day of our wedding, both his music and his singing were really beautiful during the ceremony. The amount of guests who commented on the music following the mass. Gavin was hassle free to work with, a true gentleman, professional and a really nice guy. He played everything we requested, no hassles. Personally my favourite part of the day was the ceremony and much of that was down to Gavin and his music. Gavin is very reasonably priced and we would totally recommend him for your big day.
Review by
Gavin played at our church ceremony in Kilkenny on March 8th and did a marvellous job for which we are very grateful. As well as being a pleasure to deal with, he performed beautiful versions of the songs selected especially Halleluya which many people commented on, and we are so glad we chose him, and would heartily recommend him for your big day. He is a true professional. Thank you Gavin!
Review by
A huge thank you Gavin for playing at our church wedding ceremony on Valentines Day-the music was absolutely beautiful - we really loved sitting at the alter listening to your beautiful voice behind us. You were amazing to deal with on the lead up to the day and even with the hitches that took place on the day, including the electricity going in the church you continued playing and singing beside us on the alter - it was truly amazing and stands out as being a special part of our wedding- especially when you continued to play for our church photos after, We would highly, highly recommend you to anyone and we got some many compliments on your music. Thanks again.

Gavin played at our wedding on 28th February in the Clarence Hotel in Dublin. He played for both the civil ceremony and the drinks reception and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody. Gavin is friendly and helpful and at all times very professional. Everybody commented just how well he played and sang and also that he seemed to be really enjoying himself too. We wanted a more contemporary sound for the day and after speaking to Gavin in the run up to the wedding I knew the music would be the one thing I wouldn't have to worry about, I knew I could trust him to do what he did best. I must also say his prices are very competitive too! Thanks for everything Gavin!
Review by

Gavin played for our wedding on the 26th of October 2013. Everybody said how amazing his voice was. The grooms mother was 45 min late and Gavin played right through with no hesitation. He was so professional from start to finish. We could not fault anything, and he helped to make our day so perfect. Gavin was priced very good and he was worth EVERY cent. We (And I speak of all our congregation) could not recommend Gavin enough.
Review by
We were fortunate to get Gavin through a full package with Moonlight. Gavin was an absolute dream to deal with. Most of the organising was done via email due to my hectic work hours and he was on hand every step of the way to help us in our decisions for the ceremony music. Everyone was telling me how beautiful Gavin’s instrumentals were before the service, and how his music had set the perfect romantic atmosphere. The ceremony was Church of Ireland and Gavin’s expertise put us totally at ease, there was no issue with hymn choices or even choosing a non traditional entrance song. His voice is truly amazing and we were lucky enough to have him for the drinks reception too. You definitely gave us an equally amazing soundtrack to our fantastic day. Thanks for everything!
Review by
A sincere thank you for singing at our wedding last saturday (14/09/2013). Your voice and your singing was truly amazing. You made us so emotional at the church specially my wife who did cry on her way to the alter. Everyone was commenting on your voice and was asking who you were. Thanks again, you certainly played a big part making our day very special.

Gavin sang for us at our wedding on 1st August 2013. We couldn't recommend him more highly, he was so professional to work with and so pleasant. He has the most amazing voice and so many of our guests complimented how beautiful the music was. Thank you Gavin :-)

Gavin sang at our wedding on 29th Sept 2012 in St Canice's Church Finglas . He sang the most beautiful songs for us , he helped us choose the songs and recommended some to us that he knew would make our day so special. He has the most beautiful voice. Our guests are still talking about his voice. We got our DVD last week and his voice sounds wonderful on it. We are delighted that Gavin was able to sing at our wedding. Thank you so much Gavin for making our day so beautiful.
Review by
Gavin sang at our wedding in Wexford in November and afterwards in the hotel and was absolutely brilliant. From the first email contact he was extremely helpful and professional. I never had to check in with him in the lead up to the big day as he always contacted me first! He was happy to sing and learn/adapt any songs we chose and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to sing at our ceremony. Alot of people book their band first and worry about church music further down the line but we booked Gavin straight after our hotel and church as the church music was really important to us and when we heard Gavin on his website we were very impressed. He was a pleasure to deal with and you won't be disappointed if you book Gavin for your big day. It was a joy to have him sing at our wedding and I can't wait to hear it back on the video. Thank you Gavin for making our big day so special!

Review by
Gavin sang for our wedding ceremony on the 23rd of March and we couldn't have made a better choice. From the initial enquiry right up to the big day Gavin was really helpful and professional. On the day itself both myself and my groom really enjoyed the music plus a lot of the guests commented on how good it was and that it really added to the ceremony. If any of my friends or family ask for recommendations on church music in the future I'll definitely give them Gavin's details.
Review by
Gavin sang at our wedding in September. Gavin was wonderful to deal with from the first time I phoned with an enquiry. He was so interested and always kept in touch and was so helpful every step of the way. With so much to worry about and organise I knew that the church music was totally under control I had every confidence in Gavin as he is so professional. I recieved so many positive comments from my friends and family I couldn't have been happier. I would recommend Gavin without hesitation to anyone looking for a church/reception singer.
Review by
Gavin sang for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in October 2011 i Abbeyleix and Castle Durrow. He was fabulous to deal with from the very first email contact-he even offered to help with the mass booklet. He rang us the week of the wedding to confirm everything as he had promised he would. The ceremony music was beautiful and so many of the guests commented on the music afterwards. We were blessed with a freakish summer day in October and for the drinks reception Gavin brought his instruments outside and played until the guests were called for dinner-for me this was the highlight of the day- our guests had to be called to dinner numerous times because they were enjoying it so much! Gavin we can't thank you enough for making the day so special for us and for being so great to deal with from start to finish. Thank you!
Review by
We are so happy we chose Gavin to sing and play the piano at our civil ceremony on 09th September 2011. Our guests mentioned how lovely the music and singing was on the day. Gavin, your singing voice is perfect for a wedding ceremony as it is not overpowering, you are natural & easy to listen to. We had a couple of modern song choices and you sang them perfectly. Thanks for making our marriage ceremony so special.
Review by
Gavin sang at our wedding recently and it really made the ceremony. He was so helpful in the lead up to the big day and was just superb on the day. We've had a lot of comments from friends and relatives about how good he was. I'd recommend him to anyone getting married. Thanks Gavin!!
Review by
Booked gavin for the church of my wedding. He has a lovely voice and performed the songs i gave him excellently. Everyone was asking who he was after the ceremony and some people said they actually cried listening to him
Review by
We chose Gavin to sing at our Wedding Ceremony in Co Mayo in July. We are so glad that we found him on weddingsonline. Gavin had no problem singing any of the songs we picked, some of which were less well known. Gavin is a true professional, amazing singer and musician. All of our guests told us it was the nicest and most relaxed wedding that they were ever at and this was down to Gavin. You would be truly blessed to have him sing at your wedding.
Review by
Gavin sang at our wedding in the Radisson Hotel June 3rd. We still have family and friends telling us how amazing he was and also people commented that it was like a CD playing in the background it was so perfect. He is a fantastic singer, musician and was so professional. Whatever songs we suggested to Gavin he was willing to sing for us. We would highly recommend Gavin for your special day.
Review by
Gavin was fantastic at putting me at ease when discussing our wedding last year. He made great suggestions and was very accommodating for the requests I had. His music was the first thing I heard as I walked up the aisle with my Mum & Dad, it really set the emotion for the ceremony. Thank you Gavin.

Gavin played both piano and guitar at our wedding in Feb this year. The ceremony was beautiful and Gavin's music was very special to both of us. He did a fantastic job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Gavin preformed at or wedding in Bellinter House in Sept. 2009. He was an absolute professional and fantastic help to us both on and long before our wedding day.

Gavin sang for our wedding at the registry office in Dublin and it was wonderful. We left the choice of music up to him and it was perfect- had us all in tears! With him and his guitar it was a flexible set-up in the small space. We can't recommend him highly enough,
