Tahilla Church and Parknasilla Resort
They picked a mix of music from Anna's repertoire and our own, making for a very interesting ceremony! Here's the music we performed:
Processional: O mio babbino caro
Cande lighting: Lascia Ch'io Pianga
Responsorial Psalm: Mo Ghrá Thú
Alleluia: Seinn alleluia
Offertory: Ave Maria (Schubert)
Sign of Peace: Gabriel’s Oboe
Communion: 1. Oh Holy Night 2. Little Drummer Boy
Signing of the Register: 1. Smoke gets in your eyes (Kern) 2. Someone to watch over me (Gershwin)
Recessional: Quando men vo (Puccini)
Anna was absolutely fantastic to work with, and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a soprano for their wedding.
We joined the guests at Parknasilla Resort for the drinks reception, and we bumped into a former client of ours, whose wedding we played at in 2014, who was a guest at this wedding! There was mulled wine, tea, coffee, fish, chips and other yummy things, and I was too busy playing and eating to take any photos of the lovely surroundings at the hotel. We had a great time and thankfully the storms didn't affect anyone's journey.
Thank you so much for having us and all the best for 2016!

The ceremony room looked stunning, having only seen it as a dancefloor at a previous wedding I couldn't believe the transformation, it was beautiful. For the drinks reception we played a mix of Christmas, classical and modern songs, and they received so many compliments about the music over breakfast that they sent us a message the very next day, we're chuffed! Thank you for having us and congratulations!

We played for their drinks reception in Actons Hotel Kinsale, performing a mix of pop and Christmas music as well as some classical music, and even took some requests! Elaine was so chilled out, coming up to us and having a laugh in the middle of her drinks reception, no sign of a stressed bride that day! The food was fantastic too with delicious chowder and soup with brown bread, and a gorgeous sweet table with penny sweets and Ferrero Rocher, yummy! Can't imagine sitting down to a big dinner after all that, heehee!
Their wedding was originially booked for The Steakhouse restaurant, which caught fire in August! Luckily Actons were able to accommodate the wedding, the place looked gorgeous and everyone enjoyed it, and thankfully the Steakhouse is reopen and there were no serious injuries or anything, but still, imagine the stress for everyone involved! The Steakhouse is a fantastic restaurant that deserves our support so pop on over to their Facebook page and give them a like, and visit them next time you're in Kinsale, you won't be disappointed
Once again, Congratulations E&A and thanks for having us!!
