Wedding Ceremony Singer

My name is Muriel and I am a professional wedding singer based in Co. Kildare. I specialise in wedding ceremony music ranging from an intimate church setting to civil partnerships. I have over 15 years experience as a wedding singer in Ireland and love every minute of it.

My vocals have been described as enchanting, haunting, passionate and of an emotional quality with a beautiful tone and a unique character, which enables me to cover a wide variety of music styles.

I have a wide repertoire of church wedding songs and civil cermony songs, covering many genres including modern and contemporary, traditional, light classical and religious.

I love singing. Singing came natural to me from a very early age. I have always loved the connection with myself and the audience. I get immense satisfaction in working with couples in helping them to choose their songs for their special day.

Most of all, I pride myself in offering a unique and high quality service which has been acclaimed by many happy couples.

As a wedding singer, I want you to enjoy the whole experience. As one of Ireland’s leading female wedding singers, I  take pride in offering a unique and high quality service which has been acclaimed by many happy couples.

I appreciate how much energy goes into making your wedding day perfect.

Choosing the right music and choice of song for your wedding is vital to create the right atmosphere.

I can customise songs and music to suit your personal taste and instrumentals are also available. If you have a special song in mind, and it does not feature on my repertoire, please contact me and I will certainly make sure it is included.

When your guests are arriving my accompanist will play a few instrumental pieces to create a nice ambience in the church for your wedding guests.

I am available to perform at weddings throughout Kildare, Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Offaly and surrounding areas.

Church Wedding Songs

Church wedding songs and hymns suitable for a Catholic wedding ceremony. I have put together a sample order of service with some suggested hymns and songs, suitable for a church wedding, to help inspire your choice. I always tailor the ceremony music to suit your personal requirements. If there is a song that means something to you both that is not featured on my site, I am more than happy to learn it for you at no extra charge.

Please remember to get your chosen church wedding songs and hymns approved by your Priest before you print your order of service.

When your guests are arriving my accompanist will play a few instrumental pieces to create a nice ambience in the church for your wedding guests.

  • Bridal March
  • Legends of the fall
  • Trumpet Voluntary
  • Arrival Queen of Sheba
  • Paco Bels Canon
  • The Secret Wedding (Instrumental)
  • A Gift of a Thistle
  • Now we are free
  • The Deerhunter

(An instrumental piece can be played here, or part of a song sung as there is not enough of time to sing a full song)

  • Turning page (sung partly)
  • Your still the one (sung partly)
  • In a country church yard (sung partly)
  • Clouds Veil (sung partly)

You each light a candle representing your individuality and uniqueness. After the marriage vows, you will light a unity candle. This is quite a short part of the ceremony so an instrumental piece is recommeneded. You can pick a traditional hymn or something alternative.

  • Gabriel’s Oboe
  • Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran)
  • Air on a G String
  • Legends of the Fall
  • Winter Song
  • Turning Page
  • You & I (John Legend)

The Responsorial Psalm is sung after the first reading. Alternatively, you may prefer to have a wedding guest read the psalm.

  • On Eagle’s Wings
  • Here I Am Lord
  • Be Thou My Vision
  • Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace
  • The Cloud’s Veil
  • As I Kneel Before You
  • Alleluia
  • Sinn Alleluia

A hymn is traditionally sung as the gifts are being bought to the altar.

  • Ave Maria (Shubert)
  • May it be (Instrumental)
  • Ag Criost an Siol (Christ of the seed)
  • I am the bread of life – Church hymn
  • How great thou art
  • Panis Angelicus
  • He is Lord
  • Christ has died
  • Make Me a channel of your peace
  • Peace is flowing

At the end of the wedding ceremony when the bride and groom are walking down the aisle married, the Wedding March or Trumpet Voluntary are very popular choices, however, a song of your choice can be sung instead.  I recommend choosing something celebratory and joyous.

  • Mendelssohn’s Wedding March (instrumental)
  • Trumpet Voluntary (instrumental)
  • At Last – Etta James
  • Greatest Day Of Our Lives – Take That
  • We’ve Only Just Begun – The Carpenters
