Claire has an amazing voice. She really made our ceremony special. I didn't make it easy for her as I was very undecided about songs, never half a rehearsal and she was so professional and understanding. An amazing woman to deal with and put me at ease throughout our contact. Everyone at my wedding had nothing but compliments for Claire. I really cannot fault anything or recomended her enough. Her song selection was beautiful and she had no problem learning a new song if i wanted. I will definitely book Claire again if there was an occasion where we needed a church singer. Only thing i was sorry about was that i hadn't booked her for drinks reception aswell. Fantastic performer xx

Review by
Claire sang at our church wedding in August and we just couldn't have asked for more beautiful ceremony music. She was very open to our song preferences and was able to suggest music where we weren't entirely sure what to have. I remember enjoying listening to her sing during the ceremony in spite of my nervousness which is a brilliant memory. All our interaction with Claire were completely hassle-free and she organised everything perfectly. Even better if you book Claire for the ceremony/reception and Gossip Band for the evening entertainment!

If we were to get married again, we would still choose Claire as our ceremony singer. She has the most beautiful voice, just perfect for the modern songs we had at the start and finish of the ceremony and also for the hymns during. We had so many fabulous comments about our ceremony music. Claire was accompanied by the extra musicians that we requested and sang all the songs that we wanted, despite not having sang some of them before. She was extremely helpful in the run-up to our wedding, she constantly checked in with us and was extremely responsive and professional in all our dealings with her. Best value for money too!

Claire was fantastic to deal with. We booked Claire for our church ceremony on the strength of her clips on her website. She sounds even better in real life. She was great to deal with, we emailed, spoke on the phone, she suggested songs when we were unsure, she even sung a few songs over the phone. Planning a wedding is a lot of work, so to all the future brides and grooms reading this to research music, Book Claire Malone. She has the voice of an angel, she will make the ceremony meaningful, give you that WOW feeling, your guests will be very impressed and you are making the right decision - book her.

Hi Claire, We would like to say a massive thank you for performing at our ceremony and drinks reception. We are so happy we choose you. We had to go all the way to Dublin to find you but all the searching was worth it. You have an amazing voice and this was confirmed to us by all the comments from our guests wondering who you were and what a fantastic voice you had. We received our wedding video this week and listening to your voice again is amazing. You were a pleasure to deal with from our first call. We picked songs that were special to us and Claire sang each of those songs to an exceptionally high standard. We would highly recommend Claire Thank You for making our day so special Yvonne & Gerry

Gossip Band were fantastic! Claire is so personable and her energy is infectious.. from the first day I met her in a bar to talk about the wedding to a few days after the wedding she was so professional and responsive.

Claire was amazing to work with, she was always available to go through any questions we had. She suggested songs she though would work but also sang ones that were special for us. We also had family members playing instruments and Claire worked with them to make sure everything sounded perfect together. Couldn't recommend enough.

Claire sang at my best friends wedding and she was just amazing. The emotions she evoked with her voice and the tone she set for the wedding was just phenomenal. She was so professional and I know she fully accommodated my friend with her choice of songs. I would recommend her for any event. She's amazing.

Claire did an amazing job singing at my dear Grandads funeral, he was a man who loved his music and Claire sang some of his favourite songs beautifully. He would have loved it, she made the day so special and one we will never forget. Thank you from all the family.

We booked Claire for our wedding in May 2017. Claire sang beautifully for the church ceremony and reception. We had heard some of Claire's work previously and her voice sends shivers down your spine. It's beautiful! Claire was a true professional and gave us a choice of songs for various parts of the ceremony. The music came out perfect in our wedding video also. I cannot recommend Claire enough. She was such a pleasure to deal with and very responsive and understanding to needs. Lizanne & Mark

Claire sang for our church ceremony and she was amazing. Her voice is something really special & we still talk about how amazing she was in the church. Her voice just works so well in a church you won't be disappointed if you book her. She was a great help with songs choices and was so easy to deal and so down to earth she made the whole process very easy. Thank you again Claire for everything & we wish you all the best for the future xx

Claire was so helpful and professional throughout the planning and booking process, she really put my mind at ease. She advised and came up with ideas for the ceremony which were lovely touches. Her voice and performance was amazing, I enjoyed it so much and got really good feedback from guests ,some compared her to Adele! I'd have no hesitation in recommending Claire after my wedding ceremony. :)

Claire, once again thank you so much for bringing so much to our wedding day! The church was truly magical! Sitting and listening to both you and Joe sing The Prayer was honestly one of my most memorable moments! From the moment we met Claire and the band we were blown away by their talent, professionalism and friendliness! Claire was so helpful and gave great guidance and advice on song choices for our ceremony, it made all the difference and the singing was absolutely stunning on the day, people are still talking about it and we are so glad we will have these memories, and our video, to look back on forever!

Claire recently sang at our wedding ceremony and I can honestly say the music and Claire's singing was sensational. Every time she sang I had goosebumps!! A number of people after the ceremony came up to me and asked who Claire was as they thoroughly enjoyed her singing and our choices if music. If you want something a little different from the norm meaning classical or gospel then I highly recommend Claire. Thank you Claire for being part of our wedding and making such beautiful sounds. Much love xx

Dear Claire, This is a very long overdue note to say THANK YOU! Our thank you is for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. For your professionalism right from the start, for your patience, for the amazing singing and most of all for learning a song you didn't know in a foreign language. You brought a smile to us and all of our family and the day wouldn't have been complete without your beautiful singing. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Claire sang at our wedding on 16 feburary 2013 and I could not recommend a better singer to sing at a wedding. She was amazing not just on the day but from the minute I contacted Claire she was such a great help. She was so willing to learn extra songs that we wanted. Everyone that was at our wedding was at full praise at the performance Claire gave at our wedding. It was really one the highlights at my wedding as it made it that more special to have such a great singer at the church.

From the moment and my now husband choose Claire as the singer for our wedding we knew we had made the right decision. Claire was amazing helping us through the whole process offering valuable advice and experience choosing our songs. She even learnt songs she was unfamiliar with in order to sing them on our big day. I can not recommend Claire enough to anyone who wants a singer who will make your day one to remember. Every one of our guests were blown away by her fantastic voice. If you are looking for a wedding singer who will go that extra mile to give your day the personal touch Claire is definitely the one for you. Thanks Claire xx

Claire sang at our wedding on 14th December 2012. She was accompanied by Dave on guitar. She was absolutely superb. She put her heart and soul into all the songs she performed and helped and guided us in the best choices of songs to suit us for our big day. We could not recommend Claire highly enough. Anyone that has her performing at their wedding ceremony will not be disappointed. Thank you so much for making our ceremony a ceremony to remember.

Claire sang for us at our wedding in Straffan December just gone. She was accompanied by Dave on the guitar who was wonderful. Claire was so professional and wonderful to deal with from the moment we booked her until the day of our wedding. I had a few worries at one stage (as every bride does now & again!! ), and when I contacted Claire she put me right at ease. On the day, Claire was outstanding. She is so passionate about her job and that's so easy to see and hear. Everybody was complimenting her afterwards saying what a beautiful voice she had, and how you can feel the emotion through her songs. Claire learned a song that we had chosen, and sung it so beautifully. She was absolutely outstanding and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She made our ceremony so emotional and amazing, and I don't think us or our family and friends will ever forget it. Thanks Claire and Dave. Xx

Claire sang in the church at our wedding in June 2012, along with Dave on guitar. The music was excellent and Claire's voice sounded beautiful in the church. She was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up and helped us with song choices and advice. She was able to sing songs that were not on the standard list and was receptive to any of our needs. We could not recommend her highly enough!

We booked Claire and Joe Walsh to sing at our wedding on March 23rd 2012. They were amazing! Everyone commented afterwards how fabulous they sounded and what a wonderful job they did. Claire was a pleasure to deal with, so helpful and gave me great advice on song choices. One of the highlights of the day for me and my husband was when they sang The Prayer, it really was something special, was so hard to hold the tears back! I would definitely recommend them, your wedding will be extra special with them performing. Can't thank them enough!

I booked Claire for my wedding on May 28th 2011. Herself and Joe Walsh sang at our church ceremony. It was THE best desicion I made! They were absolutely gobsmackily AMAZING! Every single person at my wedding commented on how great they were. I remember whispering to my husband after communion when they started to sing The Prayer and from the corner of my eye I saw every head in the church turn to look at them, it gave me goosebumps! It was a pleasure to deal with Claire from start to finish. I didn't have to give a second thought to anything on the day because I knew it was all under control and this is exactly what you need when you have a hundred other things going through your head! I couldn't recommend Claire highly enough! She made our special day even more special and I sincerely thank her for this x

Claire sang at our wedding on 8th may 2010. Claire was absolutely amazing her voice is so soulful. Claire is one of the most down to earth people I've ever met which makes her so easy to deal with. All the guests commented on how amazing she was. Claire learnt 2 of my favourite songs for the wedding which was fantastic. She will go out of her way to make sure your day is perfect. I would highly recommend Claire for your wedding day believe me you will not be dissappointed. LISA & CHRIS MAY 2010

Claire & Joe sang at our wedding recently in Sligo. We had a small country church & Claire & Joe truly added to our wedding ceremony. It was a fresh foggy day outside but inside there was silence as everyone sat back and listened to the wonderful music. Even though it was cold we had the shivers particularly when they sang The Prayer. This song stands out for us & we where in complete awe. A number of people have listened on Claires website to hear this song again. Claire was a real pleasure to deal with & nothing was to much hassle as she has a true talent in this area. We would highly recommend her to celebrate with you on your wedding day.

Claire sang for my wedding in August and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Joseph Walsh (http://www.josephawalsh.com/) accompanied her and we had a guitarist also. Claire is so easy to deal with and will go over and beyond to ensure that the church music is perfect for you on the day and that you are happy with the song choices. Claire learnt 2 songs especially for our wedding day and they were perfect. When herself and Joe sang The Prayer, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. All of our guests could not believe that they were singing it live as they thought is was a recording and lots of heads turned in the church to check they were really singing! They are still talking about their version of that song! Claire's voice is very soulful, and you can tell with every song she sings she puts her heart into it as well. Her voice can adapt to any song, which is great because it allows you a great variety when choosing. Church music is such an important part of the wedding ceremony, but reassured you will not be disappointed with Claire singing at your wedding. I will be recommending you for years to come. Thank you Claire for making our day so special.

Claire sang at my wedding last September in the church and she was outstanding!! She has such a soulful voice that you would not expect from someone so small. She can make any song her own and turn any occassion into one to remember. She is definitely worth booking if you want your day to be special.
