What our customers say?
I honestly cannot recommend Grainne and John enough! The music made our day so special, I really felt that they got to Know us as a couple and helped choose a range of songs that complimented our ceremony perfectly. Grainne and John are so talented, many of our guests commented on the wonderful job they did on the day and how they would love to see them Perform again,to be honest I was sorry I didn't book them For the drinks reception too! I would recommend them to any bride and groom that wants to make their ceremony special and individualistic, they really take it to another level,if I could recommend a song that has to be included, when Grainne sang nella Fantasia it felt like time stood still. Cannot recommend this musical duo enough!
Grainne and John are beyond words, but I had written an email to thank them after our wedding in May so I will use that. You will not be disappointed with this duo. "Everyone was absolutely blown away by your singing, I'm not joking absolutely everyone at the wedding and I do mean everyone, has been taking about your singing all weekend. One girl, whom isn't engaged, wants your number for her wedding! Loads asked me for your details so I hope you get something out of it. All the boys were amazed as well, all the photos show them with their jaws on the floor! And apparently all the girls were crying, ye really did move everyone, us included! It was so amazing we couldn't have even imagined it any better, you're both so talented! Magic!
I could not have been more pleased with Grainne and John. So professional, so relaxed and so easy to deal with. No query was too big, too small or too silly. We really were absolutely delighted with them.
Absolutely amazing. A pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Was so happy we booked them. They are very in demand so we were lucky they were available for us. Grainne is so easy to deal with and we did most of our correspondence via Facebook which made it very very easy! They even learned new songs just for us as the were a few songs that had special meaning for us. Their performances on the day were sensational. I don't think a single person left without making a comment on how good they were! I would highly recommend. 5/5
We saw Grainne & John at a wedding fair in Limerick back in January and they were outstanding so we obviously booked them straight away. From the get-go Grainne was a pleasure to deal with, she promised us she would make it unforgettable and she promised us she would give us the wow factor, and to say herself and John delivered would be an understatement. Grainne helped us from start to finish with song choices and guided us through every aspect of the ceremony, a pleasure to deal with! I cannot convey how amazing they were, they were literally the talk of the day. From start to finish, every song was better than the last, you could have heard a pin drop while they were singing! To say they moved everyone in the church would be a more than fair statement. Even after we came home from honeymoon when we met people, everyone and I mean everyone commented on the music. Goosebumps, tears and jaws were dropped all round. I really could not recommend these two more, the professionalism, ease of communication and willing to accommodate our needs, never mind the finished product, were second to none. Our highest recommendations and praise! Unforgettable and amazing.
Hope this conveys how truly grateful we are and how much we loved the ceremony. From the start to finish of our wedding preparations both Grainne and John were absolutely amazing. They met with us, gauged our personalities and helped us choose our songs. The music at our wedding ceremony was exquisite. All our guests are still talking about each and every song played and most of all "the prayer". So much so and something I've never seen before the church erupted into an impromptu round of applause. That moment alone will stand in our minds for many years to come. Grainne and John you have both made our day so magical and special and we can't thank you both enough. Words can't express how highly I would recommend you both to any couple starting the wedding planning journey.
Delighted with Grainne & John, from the picking of the songs to the quality of the performance we couldn't have been happier. Without a doubt we'd highly recommend them to any couple getting married.
Grainne and John sang at our wedding ceremony last weekend and were stunning. Grainne was so much help when choosing songs and nothing was impossible.they got a round of applause after they sang the reflection song "the prayer".one of our guests said he wanted to clap after each song they sang!! They really added to our mass and everyone at the reception were talking about them.i would really recommend them to any future couple getting married.
I was a guest at a wedding recently where John and Grainne performed. I have been to a quite a few weddings, but I have never ever witnessed anything like the performance they gave that day. To say they put their heart and soul into it would be an understatement, and they really looked like they were genuinely enjoying it! Everyone was blown away with them, I thought we had reached the highlight when Grainne sang Nella Fantasia, but I was wrong! All I ask of you was something else and I think my husband had something in his eye when they sang the prayer 🙂 Genuinely was blown away by these two, and I only hope I get to see them perform again, an amazing duo! 10/10
I attended a wedding at which Grainne and John performed at in June, and all I can say is they were show stopping! I never leave reviews but i had to this time as they were unbelievable. I couldnt wait for the next song at every part of the mass! They had the whole church capivated and i was genuinely sorry when the mass ended, I could have listened to them all day long! Without any doubt I will be booking them for my own big day, they made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. The highlight and the talk of the day. Fantastic! 10/10
I cannot recommend Grainne and John enough! They are really nice people, super to work with and really made our day very special with their beautiful voices and musical talents. We first came across them at the Killarney Wedding Fair, they sang 2 songs on stage and literally the whole crowd stood still to listen to them, enchanted with their magical sound. We of course booked them straight away. When it came to deciding what music to use for our ceremony they were more than helpful giving good guidance and helped us pick the right songs that were a reflection of our characters. They even learned songs that were not in their portfolio. But the overwhelming memory of the day for a lot of our guests was a song that was performed at the end of the ceremony. My husband, along with a gang of his friends wanted to sing a surprise song "Stand By Me" at the end before we walked down the aisle. Now, they arent the best singers in the world and were a bit nervous about it but John and Grainne were super and put them at ease. The song went down really well, the whole congregation were singing and having good fun with it. Our videographer said it was amazing and something he had never seen before. He had the video up on his website before the end of the day!! lmweddingsvideography.com . Thank you Grainne and John so so much for everyting, you really did make our day really special.
Grainne & John were absolutely brilliant on our wedding day over two months later our guests are still talking about our church music. We would like to thank them for their professionalism and for sharing their special talent with us and our guests. We highly recommend them to all future couples.
These are a fantastic duo for your church entertainment, if you are looking for the wow factor these are the people to book, they have a great repertoire and Grainne was very personable & bubbly when putting our arrangement together, took the stress out of everything. The first time I came across this duo was @ the UL wedding fair, they were doing an opera piece and everybody stopped and turned when they performed, afterwards the queues at their stall for bookings was crazy. Watching our wedding video back you can see the guests whispering & looking on in awe they belted the tunes out, as soon as we came back to our drinks reception our guests were asking who they were, how amazing they were, some had hairs stand up on the back of their necks, we got married in the Aran islands and people were still talking about them getting off the boat home, a real wow factor, a great theatrical operatic type range of music that was just so different and stunning, a few of the girls in my bridal party commented that John was very easy on the eye as well 🙂 we were extremely happy with them, big thumbs up from us!!
We had Grainne & John for our ceremony music this October and they were the single most talked about aspect of the day. From start to finish Grainne was a pleasure to deal with, her easy manner, warmth, guidance and willingness to learn new songs really took the stress out of planning it as I didn't have a clue where to start with ceremony music! They took our breath away on the day, as they did everyone else, people still ask me where I found them and how I managed to get them to do our wedding, each song was genuinely better than the next and when they sang The Prayer they brought the house down! They got an impromptu ovation and the priest said he had never heard anything like it before! There was complete silence in the church when Grainne sang Nella Fantasia, amazing!! I have had lots of people looking for your contact numbers and I would have no hesitation in telling people to book these two quick! A touch of class.
Delighted to have such a professional at our wedding. The music selection was perfect and enjoyed by all ages. After 25 years in the music industry, I have seen plenty of people who can do the job but few who can do it so well. I am proud to recommend them . Well done and thanks again. 🙂
We cannot thank Grainne & John enough for the music they provided on our wedding day. Grainne was a pleasure to deal with from day one, such a great bubbly personality and such a calm confident way that we were in no doubt but that our wedding music was going to be perfect. She guided us through all aspects of the ceremony and lead us where we needed to go in helping to pick the music. She even sorted out a last minute emergency with one of our groomsmen suits ripping!! There is nothing this girl cannot do!! The music was unbelievable on the day, every song Grainne lead us to was perfect. They were literally the talk of the day, everyone started clapping after the communion songs as they didn't realise The Prayer was to come yet-so they got too rounds of applause! Everyone was raving about them and they definitely were the highlight of the day and a memory we will cherish forever. We cannot wait to get the DVD back so we can listen to it again! Would recommend these two to anyone, if you are looking to make your day unforgettable, then these two will do just that for you! 10/10
