We booked Dan for our Wedding having previously seen him on the Voice of Ireland and when he sang at our friends wedding in 2014. We had been engaged just two weeks when i seen Dan sing in the Church and from the moment he started I had goosebumps. His voice was amazing and I booked him straight away after that for our own wedding! We got married on April 16th this year in Co.Carlow, Dan travelled to Cork for our wedding with accompanist Mary McCague. We asked Dan to bring someone he wanted to accompany him as we trusted that he would bring someone who could do as good a job at playing music as he could do at singing. While discussing hymn options with Dan in the lead up to the Wedding he was so helpful and responsice to our queries. he provided us with an extensive list of songs suitable for a Church Weddig Ceremony but also had no problem singing any other songs we wanted. I asked specifically for Dan to sing Butterfly kisses as i walked up the aisle with my father. i will never this moment and Dan certainly made it so special. His voice sounded over the whole Church and all our guests commented on how beautiful the singing was throughout our ceremony. (So good that my mother asked could she stay in the Church for the rest of the day and just have Dan singing hymns!) I cannot Thank Dan enough for making our wedding ceremony so much more special because of his singing. He is a pleasure to deal with in a friendly and professional way. For any couples to be looking for a male Tenor/Soloist for their wedding look no further. You certainly won't be disappointed. Thanks Dan! X.

Dan Twomey was amazing. We booked him from the UK without hearing him in person and he was very helpful. I had a few ideas and song choices that he was excellent at fitting in throughout the mass. he is a professional and you know he wants to do a good job. His voice is amazing and he sounded fantastic in the north cathedral Cork. I would highly recommend him for your wedding - you would struggle to get better.

'I love music and I adore music in a church. I decided I would like to have a tenor to sing the day of my wedding. I have no regrets just beautiful memories that I will never forget. Dan Twomey the tenor soloist sang at my wedding. From the first conversation I had with him he was professional and personable. He helped me to choose the songs that suited me for our wedding. He sang the songs over the phone as I made my decisions
He sang Nella Fantasia as I walked up the isle and this was amazing. Dan continued to sing beautifully all through the mass and Peter and I thoroughly enjoyed every song he sang. All of my guests commented on how excellent he was. He totally made the mass for Peter and I. We can only thank Dan but I would also recommend any bride and groom to have Dan sing at their special day.'

Dan,
'My husband and I wanted to thank you for singing at our wedding on the 20th April 2012. We had found that many weddings we went to had female singers, and while they were nice we knew we wanted something a bit different for our day. So when it came time to looking for church musicians we found it so refreshing to find not only a tenor, but a singer of your calibre that would be available to sing on our special day. We are still receiving compliments on how memorable our ceremony was and how truly amazing your singing was. You were so great to work with, and made the process of organizing the ceremony so effortless and very enjoyable. From your advice on song selections to your collaboration with us as well as with our violinist you were truly wonderful to work with. We can?t recommend you highly enough!! Thanks again for making our wedding ceremony such a special one!'

'Dan Twomey?s singing lifted our spirits, his performance was everything you would expect from a professional, As he started singing the room fell silent, everyone was drawn under the spell of his singing, His version of ?Its time to say goodbye?, was the best we have every heard, He is up there with the Greats like Pavarotti any one that gets the opportunity to hear his wonderful voice is in for a treat. The entertainment he provided made our day.'

'We would like to thank you for singing at our wedding on 19th of November 2011.
Having heard you singing at my brother's wedding in 2008 we knew that you were the man for the job. From our first meeting with you, until the wedding day, you went through everything with us in great detail and put our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding your singing was outstanding and it really set the tone for our special day. Anyone we spoke to after the wedding ceremony, commented on your singing. Once again, thanks a million for everything, we would strongly recommend you to anyone. All the best

?We booked Dan for our wedding in Cork City in August 2009 and he took control of the whole ceremony which put our minds totally at ease, not knowing where to start really. He discussed the music with us and was very helpful with his suggestions. The ceremony on the day itself was inspiring and so many people spoke highly of the sweetness of Dan?s voice and the suitable choice of repertoire. We are very grateful to Dan from the bottom of our hearts for making the day so special for us and our families and friends. We would be very happy to recommend Dan to others in the future!?
