“We would like to thank Shane and Aoife for providing the music for our wedding ceremony, drinks reception and day two party; we really can not compliment them enough! They were by far our favourite vendor to deal with for our wedding and they are an extremely talented duo.
Their music was beautiful and really set the mood for the entire day, and we're still getting compliments from our guests about how fantastic the music was. They also played at our day two party, where we had an informal get-together. They played some fantastic music, and everyone had an absolute blast. What impressed us the most was how quickly they learned and played the songs we had requested. They were always willing to go the extra mile and make sure everything was just perfect. We had several video calls with them in the run-up to the wedding, and they were always super responsive to our emails, which made the planning process so much easier.
In conclusion, we just wanted to say a massive thank you to Shane and Aoife for being a part of our special day. Your music was beautiful, and you both helped make our wedding day truly unforgettable. If you're looking for top-notch wedding musicians, look no further than these two!"

"We are so thrilled we had Shane and Aoife play at our wedding ceremony. They were absolutely amazing from the minute we first got in touch with them. Communication was brilliant, they always got back to us so quick and could literally play any song we wanted. We requested a particular song that meant a lot to us for the ceremony and they learned the song and it was played so beautifully, better than we could have imagined. So many of our guests have commented on how incredible the ceremony music was. We loved that we had the options of guitar, violin, vocals, instrumental and we could chose for each song. We would highly recommend Shane and Aoife to anyone getting married."

"Shane and Aoife were absolutely wonderful and we cannot recommend them enough! We had an outdoor ceremony and we’re very passionate about music so our vision was to have our favourite songs as a couple played throughout the ceremony surrounded by nature. Shane and Aoife created this vision for us seamlessly! With planning from abroad (we live in Canada) they made the entire process so easy. The craziest thing is that they got married just one week before us, and still managed to create the most perfect set for us. When they played Cherry Wine as I walked down the aisle it was honestly like a fairytale. Such a lovely couple and extremely talented! Thank you for being part of our day Shane & Aoife!"
