Sonya sang at our humanist ceremony & drinks reception, she was absolutely amazing. Such a lovely person & fantastic singer, our guests & family all commented how beautiful the singing was. Basically Sonya can sing anything, she really is fabulous & we would have no hesitation in recommending her.

We found Sonya a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She helped us to choose our music and even put up with a couple of our last minute adjustments two days before the wedding! The ceremony was so personal and beautiful and we had many guests come up to us to say how emotional it made them and that Sonya's singing gave them goosebumps. We really enjoyed it and it is one of our best memories of the day.
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
HI Siobhan & Mark, You chose music that was personal to you both and this always helps me to make the ceremony feel intimate with a 'sense of you'. I'm so happy it was one of your favorite memories, I felt exactly the same about my ceremony music so it's lovely to pass it on. Thank you for such a wonderful review, wishing you both all the very best. Sonya xx

Sonya was excellent and thoroughly professional to work with. We wanted to create a special atmosphere during our wedding ceremony and it was very important for us to get the right mix of music. Sonya's input into our choices allowed us to strike a balance between the traditional & the modern while also allowing us to have some fun. All of our guests commented on Sonya's amazing vocals in the Church. Sonya is an excellent singer and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Hello Olwen & Sean, Thanks you for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate you taking the time to post such a lovely review. Kindest regards to you both and thanks again. Sonya x

Sonya brought emotion and soul to our ceremony. Everyone in the church felt it. We're still hearing from friends about how the ceremony was the best they had ever witnessed. And people in general just don't go on about the church part of a wedding like that!!! Sonyas voice is effortless but it's much more than that. She pours her heart into every single note and lyric. The delivery is just epic. It created a very very special ceremony for us and our guests. I asked Sonya if she would learn off a song and some lyrics I had written. It was so important to me as it was my subtle way of marking my mums memory. She never hesitated for a second and demonstrated understanding and enthusiasm. She never even charged us for the backing track!! The way she delivered that piece of music was just unreal. It was the only way I marked my mum as I was afraid I might get upset on the day. I feel now that I really couldn't have made her prouder. I don't know how I could ever thank Sonya for that. Sonya also covered our reception and my husband and I couldn't believe the atmosphere when we arrived. As we circled the room, the topic of conversation time and time again was about Sonya! And she delivered all this in such a beautiful way. Because it was obvious from the beginning that it's never about the money with Sonya. She clearly adores what she does. She really shouldn't be such great value but I get it!! She's not only incredibly talented; she's also a beautiful person. She was so lovely to us on the day, and to all our guests. For these reasons Sonya is our number 1 vendor. Not exactly an official award or anything but we are two perfectionists who put a huge amount of time and energy into sourcing vendors. We have ridiculously high expectations. And yet Sonya went way beyond them.
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Lucinda & Diarmuid, What an amazing review from you both! , I'll never forget your day, firstly because I performed your special Autumn Leaves by Paolo Nutini in remembrance of your beautiful mum and of course I knew how important this was to you and also it was the day after I sang for my own brothers wedding ceremony on the 9th September so the whole weekend was very sentimental. Thank you so much for your lovely words, Sonya x

I could not recommend Sonya highly enough. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was both at the church service and back in the hotel. She added so much to our wedding day we genuinely can't thank her enough. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with, always to quick to respond to emails and queries and completely took the stress out of organising the music side of things for us. If you want a talented, professional singer look no further!
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Sheila, Your recommendation is so appreciated, it's especially nice to hear I helped take the stress out of my part of your arrangements. It was a pleasure working with you too and I wish you both all the very best in the future. Thank you. Sonya x

Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Janet & John, Your very good to take the time to post a review for me. I'm always chuffed to be chosen by a couple, especially when, as with your wedding, I get to spend the day with your family and friends so thank you. I'm delighted you were happy with your music. Hopefully we'll get to meet again. Sonya x

I got married in May 2015 and having looked up a few wedding singers online, I decided to go with Sonya Grimes. I met Sonya a few months in advance of the wedding and from the moment I met her I knew I had made an excellent choice – she was pleasant, professional and was so helpful when it came to choosing the right mix of songs for our church wedding. As soon as she began to sing a sample of songs, I was so unbelievable impressed and a little teary eyed!....I knew I was in great hands and couldn’t wait to hear her on our big day! On the day itself, myself, my husband and every wedding guest were blown away by Sonya’s voice. I walked down the aisle to a piece of music called The Glasgow Love Theme with words written by Sonya, it was beyond perfect. Listening to her sing When You Were Sweet Sixteen was my favorite moment. I actually got so lost in the music during the service, at times I didn't know where I was! It was incredibly beautiful and emotional. People commented throughout the day (and after the wedding day) on how great Sonya was and how moved they were by her singing. Outside of picking Sonya the best decision I made was to get a wedding DVD as I often play it back just to listen to Sonya singing!
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hello Una, You made the performance very easy for me, picking two of my favorite pieces. I love the movie 'love actually' and had to write lyrics to 'the Glasgow love theme' so I could sing it and I met my husband at 16 so 'Sweet Sixteen' is special and one of the oldest songs I sing, from 1900, love it!. Thank you for putting so much into your music and for your lovely post. Wishing you both all the very best. Sonya x

A huge thank you to Sonya for being so amazing on our wedding day. She had such a great understanding of just what a wedding needs and she played a huge part in making our day so special. Sonya sang beautifully for our church ceremony at St Stephens Green Dublin and then followed on with a more upbeat Christmas song list at the pre reception drinks at the Westin Dublin. Our guests told us that if the wedding ended after Sonyas performance in The Westin it would've been amazing. I've never been to a wedding where the guests started dancing before the meal was served!!! The combination of songs she sang at The Westin was fantastic. And not to mention the church singing....absolutely stunning. We have had so many friends ask us for Sonyas contact details. I think that says it all. Thank you again Sonya. Keira & Graham
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Keira, A Big Hello to you two back in Australia, I don't think you stopped smiling all day, it was fab. The acoustics in the University Church are one of the best so I always look forward to performing there and your guests played a huge part in the festive atmosphere afterwards, your room was buzzing. That's what it's all about, I loved every minute. Thanks for letting me be part of it all. Best wishes to you and the family, Sonya x

Sonya was absolutely amazing on our day. We were so pleased that we chose her as our wedding singer. I first heard Sonya at the RDS wedding show and I knew then that we wanted her as our wedding singer.Our guests commented on how good she was. Sonya really is so professional in what she does and was a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend her 100%
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Samantha & Francis, I don't remember receiving 100% in school so to see it hear was fab :). I always recommend that couples should try to hear their singer perform live and having an audience of engaged couples at the RDS was the perfect showcase, I'm so happy you were one of them and I got to sing for you both. Thank you for such a lovely review. Sonya x

Sonia was a true professional on our wedding day. I can't recommend her highly enough. We had so many compliments on her singing both during our ceremony and at the drinks reception. She was amazing with my 2 year old niece whi was flower girl and was fascinated by the music and microphone- a real pleasure to deal with. Thank you Sonia
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Hi Sineadh, I'll never forget your your day, partly because the weather and atmosphere outside at the garden party was so fab and also because of your niece. Young children love music and are often fascinated but she literally wanted to be in my arms as I sang during the reception, I think someone got a brilliant photo of us at the mic, Thanks for having me and for such a nice post.

Dear Sonya! We just wanted to contact you to say thanks for doing such a great job at the wedding (April 4th Mount Argus Church, Harold’s Cross) Everyone commented on the music and the singing, and how lovely your voice was (and they’re a tough crowd) we really appreciate the efforts you went to in order to get the music just right. Thanks a million for making our day extra special!
