We were delighted when we found Orla to both sing at our church wedding and to play the harp at our reception. From the day we got in touch with Orla she was so helpful. We dealt with many suppliers for our wedding and we definitely found Orla one of the most professional. She was so responsive to any requests we had and also gave us wonderful advice about what hymns would work and timing etc. Orla definitely added to our ceremony and made it very special and warm. All our family and friends keep commenting on what an amazing singer Orla is. It was definitely one of the best decisions we made and we would advise those looking for a personal touch to book her. Thank you Orla. P.S My husband would like to give her a "harptastic 10!!"

Orlagh performed the music for our church wedding in Co Cavan recently. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the first day we spoke. Not only was her music and voice the most amazing we have ever encountered but she made the entire process of picking appropriate music very simple. The ambiance on the day was beautiful, romantic and classical and this was very much attributable to her musical contribution. Our congregation commented on how they were captivated by each song. Thank you so very much again Orlagh and best wishes in your future musical endeavors. Bróna Keating 12th April 2019

Orla was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. She was such a professional. She knew exactly what would work, gave her thoughts and suggestions and was just so so lovely. Orla has the voice of an angel. People were talking about how magical the music was during the mass. I would recommend Orla to anyone. We didn't know our luck when Orla was available on our date. She's amazing, that's all I can say

We booked Orla for our wedding day through weddingsonline and the reviews we had read. After speaking with her on the phone I knew she was right for us, she was so friendly, easygoing, knowledgeable and professional. She invited us into her home to play for us and helped us with our song choices for our ceremony. She has an amazing talent, beautiful voice and created the most romantic and serene atmosphere at our wedding ceremony. The guests were raving about her all day and we thought she was just fantastic. An absolute pleasure to deal with in every way and such a lovely person to have as part of your big day. Thank you Orla and best wishes for your future x Julieanne and Declan.

We were married recently in Tinakilly House and were delighted to have found Orla Fallon. Through her instrumental pieces and song, she created a wonderful atmosphere of serenity and romance during our ceremony. We found Orla through a friend’s recommendation and she immediately showed her enthusiasm for getting involved in helping to select the perfect music for the day. For the ceremony itself, her beautiful harp music welcomed guests to their seats as they arrived and then she followed with amazing music and songs for each element of the service. It was moving to see Orla being so emotionally invested in her performance, echoing the deep feelings which we had for our wedding. Her contribution had everybody mentioning her specifically to us afterwards. We would absolutely recommend Orla for your wedding; she is simply fantastic! Many thanks again, Orla! x

Orla was absolutely amazing. She has a beautiful voice and she played the harp for our wedding. I could not recommend her enough. She also sounds amazing on our wedding dvd. We had loads of engaged couples ask us who was our church singer as they thought she was amazing also.

We were so delighted to have had the pleasure having Orla with us on our special day. From the very start, even before booking her to play at our wedding, she was the easiest person to work with. We met her in advance of our big day to hear her play and sing a selection of songs which helped us decide on which to have at our ceremony. Her music and her gentle, goosebump-inducing voice had me in tears and we both knew we had struck gold that she was free to play at our wedding. Our guests were all so impressed by Orla's emotive music. She also played at our reception. We had beautiful weather on our big day and Orla's fun and light music outside in the sunshine really enhanced the atmosphere at the opening reception. If we were to get married again, we would choose Orla in a heartbeat. Orla's professionalism, her beautiful voice and her amazing skills on the harp exceeded all of our expectations. We can't wait to get our wedding video to hear her play again!

We had the pleasure of Orla performing in the beautiful Avoca church for our wedding in June. Orla was fantastic to work with and so thorough in her communication. From choosing each of the songs, explaining the sentiment behind each, and advising on the most suitable suggestions for every part of the ceremony, Orla's professionalism and experience shone throughout. On the wedding day our guests enjoyed the most beautiful rendition of She Moves Thro The Fair, Nella Fantasia, and The Clouds Veil, amongst many others. We adored everything about our special day however Orla's support in the pre-planning and performance on the day was just amazing. I can't recommend Orla more highly and would absolutely recommend in future.

My husband and I had the absolute joy of having Orla play for our wedding in May! We first met her in March just after we got the keys to our new home and she moved us to tears doing a private recital in our front room! Her voice is STUNNING and her harp performance is just wonderful - I knew that I wanted a gentle style of music that everyone would remember from their childhood and I can’t tell you the number of compliments that Orla received from our guests - a beautiful person and a beautiful musician - thank you so much for being such an important part of our special day!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of celebrating our daughter’s Wedding at Rathsallagh House, Dunlavin, County Wicklow, Ireland. Her wedding was made all the more wonderful by having Orla perform for us. Orla was recommended to us by Joe O’Flynn owner of Rathsallagh, where he had had the pleasure of seeing her perform at previous Wedding celebrations. We approached Orla and asked if she would be available to play at our cocktail drinks function the Thursday night before the Wedding and also at the Wedding. We chatted with Orla and were lucky enough that she confirmed she would be available on our dates. The Thursday was simply wonderful where she played Harp background music and also sang a very special song for our daughter and her husband to be. It was incredible and all our guests were wowed! Orla’s music is a mixture of traditional Irish and well-known ballads and songs, a great mixture for every discerning ear. On the Wedding day Orla played in the church before the ceremony and then when our daughter walked down the aisle Orla played her special song and it was simply wonderful. Incredibly emotional and so special for everyone. Possibly the most special moment was when Orla sang a New Zealand love song, Pokerekere Ana, in Maori for us. She had told us how hard it was to learn and also to get the Maori words right, she “nailed it” and there was not a dry “Kiwi” eye in the church.  The sound of the Harp in the church was magical and everyone agreed it was so much better than listening to an Organ beating out a hymn. Following the Wedding ceremony, Orla returned to Rathsallagh and played and sang a mixture of songs during our reception drinks and then accompanied the guests as they entered the Pavilion Marquee to be seated for the Wedding Dinner. Quite simply Orla made the Wedding for us. All her advice regarding the right type of music to use for the right occasion was just perfect. She was so approachable and responded immediately to our emails and telephone calls. She was so accommodating and a truly delightful person to finally meet in person after many long distance calls from New Zealand to Ireland. We can’t thank Orla enough for making our time at Rathsallagh even more incredible special than it turned out to be.

I really enjoyed working with you in planning such a beautiful wedding .It felt very special to be a part of such a magical event. I wish you both and Alex and Rory every happiness and good health and hope our paths cross again some time in the future. Warmest wishes, Orla

Orla was absolutely amazing and did such an amazing job at our wedding. The music was one of the highlights and people were still complimenting her long into the night! No better compliment than one of my groomsmen and his fiancee asking for her number to do their own wedding! Would highly, highly recommend Orla! She has a stunning voice and her music flows so naturally during the ceremony!

We recently got married here in Co. Kildare and from the week we began planning our day I wanted the best. Orla did not dissapoint, she was fantastic, Orla you truly are a gifted professional at what you do, our guests loved the harp and your voice is like an angels. Absoluted brilliant. I would fully reccomend Orla to any couple who want someone truly professional with an elegant irish twist, your voice is stunning.xxxx Thank you so much Orla!

Words cannot describe how good Orla is, you have to see her to believe it. She made our ceremony. Everybody was talking after of how good she was, she even learned a new song for Siobhan to walk up the aisle too, she is the real deal, really is the 1.

Orla performed at our wedding ceremony last Friday, and I cannot praise her highly enough. Orla is an extremely talented professional and was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Orla's stunning voice and beautiful music provided such a calming atmosphere in the church, and our guests enjoyed her just as much as we did! My advice would be to book Orla ASAP, you won't regret it! Thank you Orla, we are thrilled you were a part of our special day, Best wishes, Clare

I do not know even where to start but I cannot thank or recommend Orla enough. Every single one of our guests commented on how truly wonderful it was, the magical atmosphere you created and it was a stand out part of the entire day. As you knew, your version of Caledonia has been one of my favorite songs for many years and it was incredible to have you sing it on my wedding day and meant so much to me and to us. The pieces were perfect, Orla is a true musical talent and had that innate ability to grasp us as a couple and what we wanted from our ceremony and she was such a pleasure to work with and deal with over the last year.
Review by
Without hesitation I would thoroughly recommend Orla to provide music/vocals for any Wedding Ceremony. Orla played the harp and sang at our wedding. She was very helpful with ideas on the run up to the wedding. On the day she was very professional and performance was amazing throughout. Her beautiful voice was matched by her superb music. Since the wedding, many of our guests have provided us with very positive feedback regarding Orla's performance.
Review by
I cannot speak highly enough about Orla's talent, friendliness and professionalism. She made our wedding ceremony so much more special. She is an incredible musician and singer and was so helpful and reassuring in the lead up to the wedding. Choosing Orla was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding!

Very professional . Beautiful music for our ceremony.

Orlagh played the harp and sang at our wedding. She was super helpful from the very first point of contact. I had my own ideas of how i wanted the music to be incorporated into the ceremony, she went above and beyond to ensure we created the vibe that both I and my partner were looking for. She had no problem checking the mass booklet to ensure everything was in the correct order. Orlagh voice sounded angelic on our big day. I remember the doors of the church opening and everyone looking as the flower girls began walking, Orlagh's voice created a beautiful air of romance - it sounded so gentle and very celtic throughout the ceremony. So many of our guests commented in such a positive way about the music and her voice, I know that some of them even went as far as complimenting Orlagh directly on the day. We are only married 6 weeks and we have already had an enquiry for her number from one our guests for a potential booking. I can't recommend Orlagh enough, she is a fantastic person, very easy to deal with. She looked beautiful on the day playing the harp and signing. Without doubt, I would recommend her to my family and friends in a heartbeat. Myself and Paddy would like to wish Orlagh and her family the very best for the future.

Orla provided the perfect accompaniment to our church service, which was held in Co. Tyrone. She was a true professional - listened to our ideas and where appropriate, made suggestions. There were one or two songs that she didn't have the sheet music for, but she made a point of getting them so we could have our deam music. We loved working with her and the music was definitely a highlight of our day. Soft, romantic and everything we wished for and more.
Review by
Orla's music just completed our day ,she made it just perfect. The guests at our Wedding spoke of her music for weeks after. I can't stop watching my DVD to hear her sing again. I 100% recommend her. Fantastic value for amazing entertainment.

David and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an amazing performance at our wedding at Brooklodge. You were one of the highlights of the day and mesmerizing for us and the guests. It was a dream to have a harpist and you certainly have fulfilled that dream. Thank you so much for taking over the stress of what songs to play, each one was perfect and beautiful. All our guests complimented you and it was an honor to have a traditional Irish performer for both our Irish and foreign guests. Thank-you so much again.

Thank-you so much for complimenting our wedding ceremony so beautifully with your fabulous vocals and harp instrumental. Your music was widely admired by our guests and your presence at the Step House created a lovely atmosphere! Thank you for all your assistance in choosing such beautiful music in the lead up to the wedding! We really appreciate all your help! With very best wishes.

Hi Orla Now that we're finally back to reality I just wanted to write to you to tell you how much we enjoyed your music at our wedding. We had so many people compliment us on your lovely music and voice. Thank you very much for being part of making our day special! With our greatest thanks.

Orla played at our wedding ceremony in Abbeyleix and back at the reception at Castle Durrow on 21 June 2014. We found her to be the true professional - she has a wonderful voice and was very easy to work with running up to the big day. All of our friends and family were extremely complimentary about Orla’s performance. Orla was very familiar with both of the venues and the service and didn’t need any prompting or guidance on the day. If you are thinking about adding that little extra musical touch to your wedding day, we couldn’t recommend Orla highly enough.
