String music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, drink receptions or even during the evening meal. I am a professional cello player and have played as part of a string quartet at weddings for many years. After having been asked to play solo at many weddings, I realised that solo cello is actually all that is needed to provide tasteful and memorable music for your wedding  and it is a unique alternative to a string quartet or a wedding singer.

Have a listen here:

Generally I provide light music as guests arrive to take their seats at the ceremony and music specially chosen by you as the bridal party enter or music can be chosen from the repertoire list found on my website HERE or on Facebook HERE. I love making string arrangements of your favourite song. Any tune at all you like I can be put together into a beautiful string music arrangement and perform it on cello making your wedding music unique and personalised.

Couples can opt for a standard repertoire of classical, popular and traditional music or choose the songs themselves. Classical repertoire includes music by J.S. Bach, Pachelbel, Handel, Schubert and Vivaldi. This is generally mixed with arrangements of popular songs by artists such as Christina Perri, Ed Sheeran and Adele, along with traditional Irish songs such as Down by the Sally Gardens and music by O’Carolan.

By chatting beforehand, we can arrange the perfect music for your special day and make it entirely personal and romantic, so please get in touch.

I can also organise other musicians if you would a bigger ensemble such as piano cello duet or violin cello duet.

We had Patrick play for our Church ceremony in Achill. My husband and I were so delighted with the music he provided, it was absolutely beautiful. He was super fast at getting back to us and handled the many changes with grace and enthusiasm. We found his price very reasonable and are so happy we choose him.
