There’s no doubt about it; meaningful music adds warmth and heart to your wedding ceremony. Uplifting and truly romantic, hiring a talented vocalist will ensure there isn’t a dry eye in the church! Most couples place huge importance on their choice of ceremony music. So, kicking off our first spotlight for #SupplierSunday, we are delighted to introduce Grace Dunne Vocalist.
Grace is a trained singer with over 20 year’s experience performing for weddings, corporate events, on stage and TV. She has an extensive repertoire in classical, musical theatre, jazz, contemporary music and can sing in our native Irish language (as gaeilge). With a wealth of musical knowledge and a beautiful voice, your wedding ceremony is in safe hands with her sheer professionalism and understanding of just how important this special occasion is.
Her theatre background saw her performing in many musicals, but most notably in the world’s most popular production Les Miserables for nine months in the first U.K. tour and the 10th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Grace has performed with West End star and friend Rebecca Storm for many years and country sensation Sandy Kelly (who dueted with the legendary Johnny Cash) on her Irish tour. She was delighted to perform during the Korean/Japan World Cup 2002 for the Irish football team and the Irish Ambassador at his residence in Seoul, Korea. She has also performed on St. Patrick’s Day in Florida, USA for many years and throughout Europe.
Grace’s Top Tips For Creating The Perfect Ambience For Your Ceremony:
- Write a list of the songs that hold a special place for both of you in your hearts. Research online and listen to recordings for ideas. Check my website for the order of songs and song ideas. I am happy to learn any song that is not listed that you may require.
- There are normally eight pieces of music, either instrumental or vocal required.
- Together, we can discuss your suggestions and I can guide you in the right direction.
- If you are getting married in a Catholic Church, always check with your priest or celebrant first. Occasionally, non-liturgical music is considered inappropriate.
- For civil ceremonies or Church of Ireland, the number of pieces is down to personal choice.
- I will arrange to meet you to discuss your songs and finalise your choices. It also adds a personal touch to your ceremony having met each other beforehand to form a bond. No request is too big, I am here to take any stress or worry you may have out of your hands .You choose your music and leave the rest to me!
