Ceremony and drinks package available. "Fionas beautiful, soulful voice  & guitar accompaniment is perfectly suited to the most romantic setting of all   - your wedding day..!"

Choosing the ideal songs to your taste and to suit your individual ceremony is a priority for me. I'll spend as much time as you need on the selection process and will help create a musical atmosphere that is personal to you. I'll help you choose from the most contemporary love songs, classic wedding songs & also traditional Irish songs & hymns.

''I was lucky enough to be  the winner of Irelands first ever televised talent contest. After some years of television work (including my own TV show) & international touring I’m now concentrating on using my voice & expertise to create that wow–factor that every bride is searching for in her Church or Civil Ceremony!''

We got married two weeks ago and Fiona was the singer during our church ceremony, she went above and beyond for us in the lead up to the ceremony and on the day itself! She was professional, flexible, friendly and helpful throughout.

Fiona provided a template and a variety of suggested songs for a church service, she was very accommodating with our queries and was able to provide advice when choosing songs.

Fiona has an amazing voice and ALL our guests are still talking about how beautiful Fiona's singing was throughout the ceremony. She even took a request from our family when we were signing the register and it made our guests day!

Fiona, thank you so much for singing at our wedding, we can't thank you enough!

We would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

If I could give more stars to Fiona I would. The most beautiful singer who made our ceremony and drinks reception so beautiful and almost everyone commented on the music. She’s really responsive and great to chat to pre-wedding. We had a clear idea of the songs we wanted for the ceremony and she listened to us and did exactly what we wanted. She even learned a song she wasn’t familiar with. She was amazing. Can’t recommend her enough.

Just want to say a massive thank you for singing at mine and Donie's wedding. You're singing was beautiful and it's only now when I'm looking at videos our guests took on the day that I can fully appreciate the amazing performance you gave. We got loads of compliments afterwards how beautiful the ceremony and music was. I would highly recommend you to anyone who was looking for a singer for their wedding.

Thanks again for everything!


Warm regards,

Fiona sang at our church wedding ceremony and, from the start, she was a dream to deal with. Having heard her sing at a wedding fair in advance of our wedding, I instantly knew we needed her to perform our ceremony music!
Fiona was so helpful when we were deciding what songs to pick and provided us with a varied list of different songs and also offered us advice and answered any queries we had. She responded to all emails so quickly and always provided detailed responses based on her experience.
On the wedding day itself, she was amazing. Absolutely beautiful singing and so lovely to deal with also. A lot of the guests commented on the lovely music and brilliant songs - this was all down to Fiona. She even had to improvise when the priest went off script!! Being the true professional that she is, this didn't phase Fiona in the slightest.
Thanks again Fiona!!

Dear FIona,

We wanted to leave a review to say a huge thank you for all you did for us for our wedding last Friday.
We had the most amazing day, and you played a huge part in it.
Thank you for the effort you put in to our special songs of Jealous of the Angels and The Rose.
It was out of this world.
We didnt expect to be doing our first dance at 5 in the evening but it was fantastic!!!!
There really arent enough words to thank you, but i hope you know how grateful we are.

Many thanks for everything.

We couldn?t have been happier with Fiona, honestly she was brilliant. Nothing was a problem, when COVID meant we couldn?t have her sing at our drinks reception and only the church Fiona was quick to let us know the new reduced price. It was no trouble for her to travel from Cork to Kerry, and we chose the songs over a few casual emails. It was ideal, it didn?t take up heaps of time. As I?m from Tipperary I wanted my home county brought into the ceremony so Fiona went and learned Slievenamon. All of the songs were perfect and I couldn?t have been happier. You will not be disappointed if you book Fiona, we found her very reliable and professional aswell bringing such a special atmosphere and sound to our wedding. Thanks again.
Response from Fiona Kennedy Ceremony & Drinks Reception Music
Thanks a million for this amazing review Brid!! You're so kind, I was thrilled to be part of your wedding! I'm delighted that Slievenamon worked out so well and in fairness, all your song choices were great..I was happy to learn one for you! Thanks so much again, Fiona xx

Fiona was incredible on the day and everybody at our wedding remarked on how good she was. I was bit of a nervous wreck but I couldn't help but remember anytime Fiona sang a song/hymn actually selecting them with Fiona via Zoom(because of restrictions). Her happy disposition and knowledge in choosing the right songs for our ceremony was invalubale. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in reccomending Fiona. She is ,like one of our songs on the day , a shining light !!

We had Fiona for our wedding ceremony on New Years Eve less than two weeks ago. She was just fantastic. It was our third wedding date and she was so flexible throughout all of the changes. We had 25 people in the end and had a fantastic day, our ceremony music was one of my favorite parts. We had a zoom call with Fiona a few months before, where she played songs for us and helped us pick the perfect songs for our ceremony.
I first saw her at a wedding fair a year and a half ago where she played the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to when I requested her to (I can't help falling in love with you), and it made me emotional which is very rare for me so I knew straight away I had to have her sing at our wedding.
Response from Fiona Kennedy Ceremony & Drinks Reception Music
It was a pleasure to play for your wedding Kelly! I'm thrilled that you loved my version of 'I cant help falling in love with you'....your entrance was fab and you looked incredible! Thanks a million for taking the time to write this lovely review. Fiona X

Fiona is simply amazing.
From the moment we met her at a wedding fair, to meeting up to go through all the songs, to FINALLY making it to the big day she was always only a text or a phone call away. She was especially fantastic when I emailed her to change around a few songs so I could have a certain song as I was walking down the aisle because I wanted to keep it as a secret from everyone. Fiona was so understanding and helpful when we had to cancel the wedding 5 days before hand and again a further two times.
She has an amazing talent and we were both so happy to have her as part of ceremony and drinks reception.

Fiona was amazing from start to finish. Met her at a wedding fair when we had no intention of booking a ceremony singer. We quickly changed our minds when we heard her. We were invited into her home (pre-Covid of course!) to choose our songs. She gave great advice and even offered to learn a couple of songs that we loved. Our guests are still talking about how great Fiona was. Thanks Fiona for making our ceremony so special.

Hi Fiona, John & I want to thank you sincerely for the most amazing music both at our ceremony in Gougane Barra & our drinks reception at Seaview House Hotel. Our guests are still talking about how fabulous you were. We live in New York and so most of my contact was via e-mail. Fiona was so easy to deal with & very quick to respond. She sent me the whole Mass layout with several suggestions for each part. We really had a hard time trying to pick our music as all the suggestions were brilliant. I met Fiona once before the wedding & she performed all the songs / hymns that we had picked. It was as if I knew her all my life. Anyone that is looking for a church / drinks reception singer, you do not need to look any further than Fiona. She really is top class. We can't wait to hear you perform again. Thanks again Fiona, Best Wishes, Breda & John

Fiona was great to deal with. I couldn?t meet with her in person as we live in the UK but she was more than happy to chat/sing over the phone. She was a massive help with picking out songs for the ceremony, as we were clueless about what we should have.
Voice is amazing and paired with her guitar really worked well in the Honan Chapel, can not fault her 1 bit, would chose her 10 times over if I had the choice.

Fiona played at our wedding last December and was absolutely amazing. She sang and played acoustic guitar for both our civil ceremony and drinks reception.

We met Fiona a few months before the wedding where she helped us with our song choices. As well as our own ideas, she played various songs for us and advised how they would fit into the ceremony. What we got was a very intimate event.

We would highly recommend Fiona.

Fiona was our wonderful singer at both our ceremony and during our pre dinner reception in Castlemartyr last December. Her voice is truly amazing. I knew from the moment that I got engaged that I wanted Fiona to be part of my wedding and I was thrilled when she was available. I can?t count how many compliments I received about Fiona on the day. Fiona was extremely helpful in the run up to the wedding and gave great advice. I would highly recommend her for any couples looking for a singer for their wedding. Yvonne

We were at a wedding and Fiona was singing so we knew what we were getting. Fiona is very relaxed and chilled out, so that's always an added bonus when your planning a wedding. Fiona is so talented. Fiona went through the music with us and helped us decide on the music, both traditional and contemporary. Fiona's voice is beautiful and the emotion she puts into her music makes the hair stand on the back of your neck! Fiona thank you so much for helping make our day so special. I would gladly recommend you to friend's. All the best. Dee

When it comes to wedding singers Fiona is the best by far she has the voice of an angel . She is so down to earth full of life and happiness. Any questions she was always there and nothing was to big or small for her to do. She made us feel so at ease and all our guests spoke of the excellent music we had and how but was sang.

Fiona's voice is amazing! She sang 4 beautiful songs for us during our ceremony and also improvised with some guitar music where it was needed. She sang afterwards too during the drinks reception until the dinner. Everyone loved her! She helped create a wonderful and fun atmosphere. We met up with her a few times before the wedding to discuss which songs we'd like and she had some great suggestions where we weren't sure what we wanted. We are really happy we chose Fiona to sing at our wedding. She was very professional and worth every penny!

I met Fiona at a wedding fair in Cork and immediately felt her warmth
There was a particular piece of classical music the church sound system simply couldn't accommodate so I was obsessing about that
As we are based in dublin I emailed and skyped Fiona a lot so my husband could hear her voice too
She helped us pick modern and appropriate pieces for the church which were absolutely perfect, "how long will I love you" was gorgeous for our entrance
The beauty having Fiona there was that she could time everyone walking and finish in time which would never have worked with my "cd"
While we went to Fota for some photographs we also had Fiona play at our reception in Vienna Woods Hotel, upon our return literally all our guests were up dancing and some even singing (trying anyway) but it really gelled everyone in our abscence and people still talk about her to us one year later,
We would highly recommend Fiona for church/reception/both
She was a pleasure to deal with and v v reasonable

Fiona is an exceptional singer and musician that is extremely professional and personable. Fiona met with us at Christmas time last year as we both live in America. In the space of 1-2 hours we had agreed the playlist for the ceremony, as well as organizing music for our reception and our first dance, which was a song we had requested that she did not know.
On the wedding day, Fiona had already worked with the venue ahead of time and the wedding band to coordinate everything, which included hiring the necessary equipment, as she was traveling to Scotland from Ireland.
Every person at the wedding was so impressed by Fiona, from the ceremony, to the wedding reception, to the first dance. She truly made our day all the more special, especially when she played our wedding song for the first dance and also put her own style to it, which made it even better.
We would recommend Fiona to anyone looking for a provider of ceremony and reception music anywhere in Ireland or the UK. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much Fiona for being part of our day. You were fabulous from start to finish. Great help with suggesting songs as we weren't quite sure what we wanted, but you gave us so many options that suited our style. The church singing was just magical, while the the drinks reception was a party, you had people dancing and all !!! You were so relaxed and professional, which gave me one less thing to worry about. I would highly recommend you and already have to guests at the wedding who also thought you were exceptional. Thanks again for everything Fiona,

Hi fiona

We cannot thank you enough for being there for our wedding on 21st of may in tralee .a month before the wedding we were without a singer after being double booked. You replied to me immediately and said you could be available for our wedding. The moment I listened to your music I was actually SO happy that we had found you ! The hour that you spent on the phone to me singing songs to help me choose our music is one of my favourite build up memories to the wedding ! I knew straight away you were professional and talented . Your voice is amazing ..you added a special touch to the ceremony. I had countless people ask me your name and people tell me that they will be spreading the word about how fantastic you were !I don't think I can do you justice with my words ..so people get listening ..go to see fiona perform ..couples book this lady for your wedding. .you will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Fiona ..

Fiona really knows her stuff and guided us in the right direction in choosing our music and I absolutely loved every song. Fiona was so professional and sang beautifully on the day and I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Fiona.

Fiona was fabulous. She helped guide us in choosing the songs for the mass and provided great advice. Every song was special and she even played a Metallica song(albeit in disguise) which raised a smile amongst the guests during part of the service. She provided the backing music for two of my friends as well. She was sensible, listened to me and could be trusted to do the right thing. Booking Fiona meant I didn't have to worry about the music at the church. Thanks Fiona!

We had Fiona sing in the church for our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic! I am Dervla from the band Crystal Swing and I really wanted someone with a unique quality to sing at our wedding. Not only is she super talented but she has to be one of the friendliness and most helpful people you could ever meet. I recommend her to anyone out there! The simplicity of the guitar and her voice is second to none!
Response from Fiona Kennedy Ceremony & Drinks Reception Music
Dervla, your wedding was amazing and I was so happy to be asked to sing for your ceremony! With all the press & photographers etc, it was a real Hollywood affair..!! :) Performing for another singer is aways a bit more pressure but you were so easy going and made me feel at ease throughout..
Thank you so much for that great review and best of luck with your own career, not that youre going to need it! xxxxxxxxxx

We had Fiona Kennedy singing for our Civil Ceremony recently and all i can say is that she is amazing! Her voice captivated our guests and the amount of people who asked who she was and commented on how good she is was incredible! From helping us to choose our songs and responding so fast to any queries we had was so appreciated by both of us, i would have no hesitation at all recommending Fiona to any future brides out there looking for an amazing and professional musician for their wedding! Not only is she very talented but a lovely lady and a true professional!
