“A massive thank you to both Reidun & Barry for performing all the ceremony and afters music for our wedding in June. They did the most amazing job and performed some of our favourite traditional tunes that suited the atmosphere perfectly and really made the day. They are both so talented and the pipes/harp combo was beautiful. I would recommend to anyone looking for some gorgeous tunes during their wedding – truly 5 stars! 🥰” Tara.

Perfect Wedding Harpist! Reidun played at our church ceremony and the music was beautiful. Her expertise was helpful when deciding on music and everyone was blown away by her playing. Reidun was also extremely flexible when our venue changed and was more than happy to play our first dance song after the ceremony ended. It was magical and memorable. We could not be happier with our decision to hire Reidun as our harpist. 5/5 ” Colleen.

Magical! Reidun and her husband played for our ceremony and the cocktail hour. We got married in a sheep’s field off of Slea Head Drive overlooking the Atlantic. My wife wanted a harpist because it’s our daughters favorite instrument and I wanted an uilleann piper because that is my favorite instrument. And we lucked out when we found Reidun and her husband because the pair added the perfect touch to our magical wedding. When I heard the harp and the pipes playing as my wife started her procession down the sheep’s field, I started crying. It was such a beautiful magical moment…like out of a movie. Reidun helped us pick out the best songs for the various parts of our ceremony. She’s an excellent communicator and we never had any trouble organizing or coordinating, even though we live in the U.S. We also had her play the cocktail hour following the ceremony, though my wife and I missed it unfortunately because we were taking photos. But our guests loved it. Everyone commented to us afterwards how incredible it was. 5/5 “ Jeph.

Reidun played at our wedding in May this year. We are so grateful to her for helping to create the perfect atmosphere at our ceremony! From the beginning, Reidun was so easy to work with-from suggesting pieces to suit different parts of the ceremony to working alongside two of my family members who I wanted to sing and play at our wedding! She went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly. The music on the day was so beautiful! So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. After the ceremony, Reidun and her guitar partner Paul played at our reception. Changing the tempo ever so slightly with some more upbeat, jazz tunes it set the tone just right! A very talented duo!! We can’t recommend Reidun enough! Organised, professional and so accommodating. Ailbhe.

We got married in Eyeries on the Beara Peninsula in May. We really wanted something special for our ceremony music and Reidun did not disappoint. She was so easy to deal with and responsive to all our queries. We were also very grateful for all the guidance she gave us in choosing the music. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was and we were just chuffed. Thanks again Reidun we really appreciate all that you did to make our special day so memorable!” Fionnuala & Ray.

“It was a pleasure having Reidun involved in our special day. Communication at all stages was clear, and took a lot of the stress out of the planning. We were able to work together to decide on the music for our ceremony – traditional, contemporary, classical – and Reidun worked with us to include a particular song of significance to us. After the ceremony, the music she chose was perfect in setting the mood, and contributed to making it a very happy day for two very happy husbands!” – Andrew and Sen

“We feel so blessed to have such a fabulous musician like Reidun to play for our wedding. She played so beautifully that it became one of the highlights of the whole ceremony that everyone was talking about. Not only did she perform wonderfully with all the various music pieces we asked for, she was there long before the ceremony and the Harp sound she produced was perfect for the little chapel. We can highly recommend Reidun for any couple’s special day, especially if you want to bring that ‘wow’ factor to your ceremony”. Brendan and Nikki

“You were a pleasure to work with and we really appreciate your flexibility as our wedding plans changed. Your traditional Irish music was exactly what we hoped for, both in choice of pieces and style. We enjoyed listening to your music during our roadtrip honeymoon thanks to your kind gift of a CD- it was lovely to be able to listen to your music again after the wedding. We would highly recommend you to any couple planning a wedding”. Emer & Michael.

“Reidun and Barry played for our church ceremony in July. They were truly outstanding! The music they played on the day was tasteful and the combination of Harp, whistle and Uilleann Pipes created a lovely traditional sound, which was exactly what we were hoping for. They were extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Overall we are delighted with Reidun and Barry and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you both!” Colm & Roisin.

We were delighted to have Reidun & Barry play for our ceremony and drinks reception recently (Sept 2021) in Skibbereen. Reidun’s harp playing and Barry’s whistle/pipes were beautiful, sensitive and set the scene for a great day. Both have a great repertoire of tunes from traditional to contemporary. Rainy Night in Soho was to be our 1st dance but because of Covid restriction on live bands we asked Reidun & Barry if could they do it for the ceremony. They did it brilliantly! Anyone who books Reidun and Barry for their wedding ceremony will be in great hands. Lovely people, beautiful music.

“Reidun is a Fabulous Lady!! We would highly recommend Reidun, the music she played was wonderful! and we have a few extra requests and if you give Reidun enough time she will try to learn any song that she might not know, which is wonderful. Reidun made the day extra special Just wonderful !!!”  Alicja & John

……..

Reidun is a wonderfully talented harpist. Booking her was made easier by being able to check out her repertoire on her website and YouTube. Even during the various lockdowns and changing restrictions she was so easy to contact and communicate with. On the day itself, even the snow and icy roads didn’t stop her. I think harp music is particularly nice with the smaller weddings but we chose to add Barry to accompany the harp. He is talented on many instruments. He also sang the Psalm for us. Great duo. Apart from the music, Reidun’s smile was very reassuring as I could see her throughout the ceremony while our friends and family sat behind us. Highly recommend!!” Eimear & Con

“We got married on Friday 6th September 2019. We asked Reidun and Barry to play at our drinks reception in the Killarney Oaks. They were just what we were looking for from start to finish they were professional and organised. We would highly recommend them. We would 100% book them again. 10/10 first class”.
