Niamh’s music on the day was fantastic she created a beautiful atmosphere and put everyone at ease. She was very helpful and professional at all times we had her perform for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception she was just great everyone at the wedding were in awe and amazed with the music she played I wish I could have listened to her all day. She has a great list of songs to choose from and I loved how she put her own spin on them thus making them unique and special thank you again Niamh you were great!

Brilliant from start to finish

Originally, we were not going to have live music during our ceremony as we had planned on playing tracks. As our date got closer I started to panic about this decision and so went on the lookout for someone to provide live music but with no idea of what it was I actually wanted. Eventually I came across Niamh and from the moment I heard her version of ‘La Vie En Rose’ I knew two things. 1. We had to have live music and 2. We had to have Niamh. Fortunately for us she was available on our date and from the very first moment of contact until after our ceremony, she was absolutely amazing. Niamh was there any time we needed her, to advise us on music placement and song suggestions. She was even amazing enough to learn a new song so we could include it in our day, aswell as rewrite the lyrics to another song we had chosen where the original lyrics weren’t suitable. She was so quick to respond any time we contacted her and as I’m sure many engaged couples already know, being left hanging can cause so much anxiety. I never had that for a moment with Niamh. Where she really shone bright though was during the ceremony. Her voice is just so beautiful. I honestly can’t even find the words to truly get across how beautiful and calming it is to listen to her. In my panicked state during the ceremony, I remember at one point just zoning out for a moment and watching her as she performed. It was one of the highlights of the ceremony for me. So many guests have since commented on how wonderful she was. One elderly couple sitting at the back had actually thought the music and singing was a track playing because of how professional she sounded. They only realised half way through that it was in fact Niamh. Our wedding day was by the far the happiest day of our lives, but I do have two regrets. One being that I wish I could have relaxed and not been so emotional for the morning and ceremony, but nerves did get the better of me. Future tip for couples there... Relax and trust that everything will go according to plan and just enjoy single moment. It’s over so quickly. My only other regret funnily enough, is in relation to Niamh. I so wish we had booked her also for our reception music but unfortunately we only booked for the ceremony. I could have listened to her all day. Looking back on our day, they are the only two things I would change. So that leaves me with my last tip to couples. Book Niamh. For both your ceremony and your reception music. I promise you, you will not regret it and she will deliver the most beautiful wedding music you could ever wish for. Looking back, I know without a doubt our ceremony wouldn’t have been the same without Niamh singing for us. Niamh, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are so amazingly talented at what you do and It was a pleasure to have to sing for us.

Niamh was amazing to deal with. She was so understanding and patient with me when I took so long to decide on the music I wanted. She was there to make suggestions when needed and went out of her way to learn new music for me with very little time to do so. Not only did Niamh perform at our ceremony but she also was present for the drinks reception and was so impressive, all guests spoke about her for days after. Thanks again Niamh x

We are so thrilled that we went with Niamh for our ceremony and drinks reception. She honestly made the ceremony for us and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We got so many compliments from guests especially for Niamh's rendition of 'Dreams' by the Cranberries.
Review by
Niamh's music and voice was absolutely gorgeous. She was one of my favorite things about my wedding ceremony. She sang the song "How Long will I love you" By Ellie Goulding as I walked down the isle and it was genuinely so magical. I actually cried walking down the isle (happy tears!) because she completely captured the spirit, energy, and love in her voice. Everyone commented to us that her voice was absolutely beautiful! I could go on and on about Niamh!Additionally, she was a breeze to work with!! She sent us a recommended list of ceremony songs which was so helpful because we were totally clueless in the beginning. She was punctual, professional, and communicated timely with us. Genuinely the best value for such a talented musician!!

All I can say about this lady and her amazing voice is WOW what a lovely lady our wedding would have been nothing without her thanks Niamh xxx
Review by
Niamh sang and accompanied herself on keyboard at our humanist ceremony. We asked her to perform five songs outside of her song list which she was more than happy to do. From the very start she was efficient and professional as she always replied to us quickly with any information we needed. As for her singing, it was absolutely stunning. Her voice is simply beautiful. When guests were congratulating us afterwards every second person commented on how brilliant the music was, one guest even thought it was CD! She was exactly what we wanted and she made the ceremony for us. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Niamh & Aisling prepared the most beautiful music programme for our wedding. From start to finish, the selection of music was varied & beautifully performed. We look forward to watching back the video & hearing it all over. We received so many compliments from guests about the stunning music. Thank you!

I can't begin to describe how unreal Niamh is. Oh my God what a voice she has, it's so haunting. All of our guests couldn't get over the music we choose, which of course was down to Niamh as I wanted to change the songs abit to make them my own. Anytime I had questions she got back to me straight away. About 3 weeks before the wedding we wanted to change our exit song and Niamh had no problem whatsoever accommodating us. She is such a lovely lady. I can highly highly recommend her and I am so so happy that Niamh was my wedding singer. You will not be disappointed I promise you!!
Review by
From the first day we contacted Niamh she couldn’t have been more helpful. Niamh gave us so many options and most definitely made our planning easier. Our guests loved her as much as we did and we received so many compliments. Niamh also performed at our drinks reception and was a big hit. She kept it pretty light and upbeat, with some jazz, some pop, some rock and they all went down a treat. We would highly recommend Niamh and if you are reading this don’t think twice about booking her, you won’t regret it. 10/10

Niamh was fantastic on the lead up and on day of our wedding. From day one Naimh couldn't do enough for us from sending us on a detailed list of songs she performs and telling us how many songs we would need during the cermony. We had 2 songs that were not on Niamhs list that we really wanted included in our ceremony...it was never an issue for Niamh to learn these songs and she played them perfectly. We listened to many other wedding performers online but chose Niamh as we loved her style and she is a fantastic singer. She had no problem travelling from Cork to Tipperary. We would highly reccommend Niamh to any of our friends or family in the future.

Niamh was fantastic to deal with from start to finish; We always felt we were in safe hands. Once we met with her we knew she understood what we were looking for – we had a lot of fun discussing our own song choices and ideas, and she contributed some brilliant ideas for songs too. Niamh learned a few songs just for our ceremony, this was no problem whatsoever for her – she found a way of giving a brilliant interpretation of all our choices. On the wedding day I think I was overwhelmed by how amazing she was, I found myself signing along to the songs during the ceremony and it made the ceremony the favourite part of our day. I'll forever cherish those memories - and songs! Our guests loved her just as much - I lost count of the amount of compliments. We also had Niamh do the reception music and that was also a big hit! If you're looking for someone with an amazing depth of tone to her voice, beautiful piano, someone flexible and overall sound then I think you should look no further. She brought great joy to our day.

We are so happy that we got Niamh to be our wedding singer. She is really really good. All our guests keep telling me how good she was. They thought it's only the CD that played on the background on our wedding ceremony. She has a voice like an angel. If we could give her a 10 star we would. I highly recommend Niamh. We can't thank her enough for making our wedding ceremony a wedding to remember.
Review by
Absolutely stunning voice and music. So many guests complimented the music after our wedding ceremony. Cant recommend Niamh enough. She was also really helpful in choosing music and responsive throughout the planning.
Review by
Niamh, wowed us on our wedding day even though we knew every song that was coming. All out of guests commented on how brilliant she was. Nothing was too much trouble and she put a great deal of thought and effort into helping us plan our ceremony music- she thought of everything. Her voice is outstanding and we would recommend her to anyone planning their wedding.
Review by
Niamh was my favourite part of my wedding ceremony! She was amazing and everyone commented on how beautiful her voice was throughout the day. She was a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning and was very helpful with suggesting appropriate songs. She didn’t mind when i changed my mind a few times on song choices. I would highly recommend Niamh.
Review by
We will be forever grateful to Niamh for all she added to our wedding day. Her voice is so beautiful and mesmerising. She accommodated our every request and was unbelievably professional while also creating a relaxed enjoyable environment for all our guests. We would highly recommend Niamh to any couple who want a memorable musical experience at their wedding ceremony.
Review by
Niamh played a hugely important role in helping us have the most special wedding ceremony in August this year. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was more than happy to learn and play our selected songs and instrumental pieces. All our guests have commented on the music at the church(Niamh on vocal and piano) and Karen on violin - it was absolutely perfect!
Review by
We found Niamh through online searches and upon hearing her recordings made the decision that she was the only one we wanted to sing for our wedding day. Niamh was extremely flexible on song choice with even learning one a week before the wedding for us. On the day she was first to arrive and set up for the ceremony, she sounded amazing, even weeks after the wedding people are still commenting on her beautiful our wedding singer voice was. Niamh is in a different class in our opinion to normal wedding singers as she would be someone we would actually go to see play live at a concert. All I can say is from our entire wedding Niamh was the one we look back one as the service we were the happiest with and recommend to all our friends.
Review by
Niamh is an incredible singer, and was so helpful in the lead up to our wedding. Always happy to answer all of my questions, she even sent me a list of appropriate songs for each part of the ceremony when I didn't know what songs to choose, all our guests were amazed by her voice too!
Review by
Niamh was nothing short of Brilliant. She was accommodating, friendly, professional and patient! I was recommend Niamh to any couple planning a wedding . Niamh learnt songs I wanted as part of the wedding and delivered exceptionally she has a stunning voice!
Review by
Niamh is beyond amazing. Her voice is something else. Made our ceremony so beautiful. Niamh is a pleasure to work with, so helpful, and really gives it her all, Could not be happier that she agreed to sing at our wedding. Had non stop compliments for weeks after. Couldn’t recommend her enough!
Review by
We had Niamh at our wedding in July and we are so glad we found her. What a talented professional who made our day so special. Our church is very big and many peoples voices can get lost but not Niamhs. She was outstanding and we have received lovely feedback from our guests. Some even approached Niamh herself on the day. She was so accommodating and even learned new songs for us which meant an awful lot. Thank you so much Niamh for adding to our special day.

I booked Niamh Murphy to perform at our church ceremony as well as our drinks reception and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I made. Though we knew from the samples on her website Niamh had a beautiful voice, it did not prepare me for how incredible she sounded in person. She is an absolutely exceptional singer. I had goosebumps throughout the ceremony listening to her and she made our ceremony personal, special and emotional. There is not a single person at the wedding that didn’t comment to me on the day or afterwards, what an amazing singer we had. She blew everyone away. From the very beginning Niamh was extremely professional and helpful, getting back to me quickly and giving me tips and advice on my music choices. She was also so willing to perform the songs that I had chosen, even if they was not in her repertoire. The music for the church was one of the most important parts for me and she captured each song perfectly. You could make no better decision for your wedding than booking Niamh. I am so grateful to her for being an absolute highlight of the day and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Niamh was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the run up and day of our wedding, she provided much needed advice on song choices for our day and nothing was ever an issue, we could not speak highly enough of her, on our wedding day, although a lot was a blur, I remember every song that Niamh sang and played on the piano, she was amazing, all of our guests commented on how beautiful her voice was and she deserves to be complemented as what she has is a gift, thank you again Niamh for everything you were a true gem, Tommy and Katie xx

Niamh sang for our church ceremony and drinks reception afterwards. Although, I did not fully manage to take in her performance at the drinks reception as I was otherwise occupied I absolutely adored her singing in the church. Such a talented performer! Niamh does such beautiful renditions of songs. I had goosebumps listening to her performing our hymns as Gaeilge. Thank you for creating such a beautiful atmosphere with your magical voice! Niamh, you have been so professional and helpful to deal with! An out and out lady! Thank you so much x

Niamh was absolutely fantastic! Her voice and playing are both sensational. Her performance in the church was gorgeous and had a lot of our guests moved to tears. She also played at the venue for the drinks reception and we were lucky that it was a sunny day and she was able to play outside. We got so many compliments on her performance and lots of our guests commented that she really added to the atmosphere of the evening. Niamh was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was so helpful in picking the songs for the day and made the process so easy and enjoyable. So delighted Niamh was available for our day. She made it really special!
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Hi Nicci, thank you so much! I'm delighted you were happy with what I did on the day. I have to say playing outside looking at the Atlantic ocean was a real treat. You both looked like you really enjoyed your day. I wish you both all the very best for your future together. Niamh xx
Review by
Niamh was a pleasure to deal with from when we were initially making our enquiries to our wedding day itself, making the process of arranging the church music very easy and relaxed. She was happy to oblige our requests and provide advice if we needed it. On the day, the church music was perfect, it really added something special to the occasion. Everyone enjoyed it and many of our guests mentioned to us afterwards how impressed they were. Thanks again Niamh. We highly recommend.

From the moment I booked Niamh to play at our wedding ceremony, she was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was very responsive and professional. I didn't hear Niamh in person before the wedding, but listened to some tracks on her website and thought her voice was really beautiful. I'm so glad I booked her as her voice was even more incredible in person. She played and sang so beautifully at our wedding. It was incredibly moving and so many people commented on how fantastic the music was. Some guests said they felt like they were at a concert! She also arranged for a violinist to accompany her and the two played together really well. Niamh also learned some pieces especially for us which meant so much to us. She arrived really early at the church to set up and practice and was incredibly professional. I would not hesitate in recommending Niamh and hope to hear her again soon!

Niamh was amazing from start to finish! She provided a great set of songs and was very responsive when I wanted a few more suggestions or help with what music we needed for the ceremony. She was very easy to deal with and our guests couldn’t stop raving about how fabulous she was!! I would highly recommend Niamh to all of my friends for ceremony music and she would also be perfect for reception music!

Niamh has been a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. All our communication was through email as we live overseas. Niamh was very responsive and guided us through song choices and layout (as we didn't have a clue). All our guests spoke so highly of her voice at the ceremony. Watching back over our wedding video Niamh's voice is pure magic. It really added to the depth and the emotion of our special day. We were thrilled with her work and her professionalism. I would recommend her to everyone. Thanks Niamh for your support. You are a true star. All the best.
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thank you so much Francesca and Timothy for that wonderful review. It means so much to know that you were both happy with what I contributed to the day. I very much enjoyed singing for your beautiful ceremony. I wish you both every happiness for your future together. Niamh xx

From the very beginning Niamh has been excellent to work with. Living abroad made it hard for us to meet wedding singers in person. However the minute we listened to Niamh’s recordings we wanted to take the risk and book her for our wedding. She was professional,helpful, and very accommodating throughout our dealings with her. Niamh helped make our wedding ceremony special. She did not disappoint on the day, her voice sounded amazing accompanied with her piano in st Mary’s Cathedral. What we both loved is we were able to pick and choose our own songs. We also booked Niamh for our wedding reception. Our guests complimented on how beautiful Niamh sung in the church and at The Malton Hotel. We would highly recommend Niamh to any brides and groom looking for a wedding singer to make their day extra special.

Thank you very much for that review Hazel. I'm delighted you were both pleased! It was a beautiful ceremony. I wish you both every happiness for your future together. Niamh xx

Niamh performed at our wedding ceremony in Killorglin last November and we could not have been any happier with her performance. Niamh has such a magical and enchanting voice and brought such lovely energy to our ceremony. Niamh very kindly learned to play “Toto-Africa” for us as our exit song and played it exceptionally well which was really special for us. Niamh was a pleasure to deal with through the whole process and we were delighted we found such a talented musician. We would highly recommend Niamh to any couples looking to add some magic to their special day.
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thank you so much Marie and Brian! I loved learning the Toto song and really enjoyed belting it out for the Recessional, what fun!! It's in the repertoire now for any party! I'm thrilled ye were happy with what I did for ye, it matters very much to me that couples are happy. I wish you both all the very best. Niamh xx
Review by
The ceremony was the highlight of our wedding day and it had so much to do with Niamh’s performance. As expected, Niamh’s voice sounded amazing and the execution of all songs we had chosen was perfect, making the ceremony very emotional for us all. There were so many really nice comments from the guests about Niamh’s performance of all the songs in the ceremony – each guest had their own favourite. As well as her undoubted talent, Niamh was also our favourite of all the people we employed to make the day possible. Niamh was very professional and helpful from our first communication and was really open-minded about the possibility of playing outside and the songs we had chosen. Niamh even made the song she had to learn for the first time the stand-out of the ceremony. It made the music part of our preparations so easy because we had so much confidence in Niamh. I couldn’t recommend Niamh highly enough if you are looking for someone to perform at your wedding. You won’t be disappointed!
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thank you so much Kristin and Philip. I am delighted you were happy with what I had to offer for your ceremony, it makes it so worthwhile and special for me too. I wish you both and your beautiful children every continued happiness for the future. Niamh xx

Niamh was just amazing at our wedding on the 7th August 2017. From the very beginning,dealing with Niamh was so easy. She was professional, helpful, and always on hand to answer our questions and provide some much needed advice. We were both really excited to hear Niamh on the day and she did not disappoint. We just couldn't have dreamt for anything more for our day. I cannot wait to see our video to hear her sing again. All our guests complimented the music in the church saying how fantastic it was. To any Brides and Grooms to be that are looking for a wedding singer,I would definitely recommend Niamh. Thanks Niamh for making our day so special.
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thanks for that lovely review Grace and Martin! It makes it so worthwhile when the Bride and Groom feel happy with the music and feel that it added to their day. It was a beautiful ceremony and my pleasure to be a part of it. I wish you both a very happy future together xx
Review by
Niamh was fantastic on the day of our wedding. As we had seen Niamh perform live previously, we knew she would be the only one for us to sing the songs we had chosen. All the way through planning the wedding, Niamh kept in regular contact with us and was very helpful with the music choices. She went above and beyond planning the music and accommodating us. Her interpretation of the songs on the day felt like she was performing for just the two of us. All of our guests still remark on how much of an amazing singer she was and how she contributed hugely in making our ceremony very intimate. She was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding day. YouTube her cover of 'La Vie En Rose' and you'll hear why she couldn't be recommended highly enough. Thanks again Niamh!!
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thanks so much Pádraig and Daniel! It was my great pleasure to be apart of your beautiful ceremony and in that amazing building that is the Triskel. I wish you both the very best xx
Review by
Niamh is a fantastic singer and musician. Her voice brought me and many others to tears at our ceremony and everyone complimented the music afterwards. She really helped to make the whole service so special. Niamh had no problem learning new songs and was extremely helpful, checking in in advance of the day. I would highly recommend Niamh, as a couple who are really fussy with music, we were delighted. Thank you Niamh!
Response from Niamh Murphy Wedding and Drinks Reception Singer
Thank you for your wonderful review Orla, I'm so happy that you both were pleased! It was a beautiful ceremony and it was my pleasure to be able to do the music for you guys. I wish you both all the very best for a happy future together xx
