Aysa was a very organized bride. When choosing her music she was as cool as a cucumber and chose some beautiful classics and wedding favourites.

Aysa and her four bridesmaids walked up the aisle to ‘Canon in D’ by Pachelbel. This was just magical as it suited the magnificent setting of St Mary’s Church in Listowel.

For the psalm, Aysa wanted me to recommend something so I chose ‘You are mine’ by David Haas. This is a beautiful hymn  with lyrics suited for a wedding. “I will come to you in the silence, I will lift you from all your fear…”

Aysa chose Bach’s ‘Ave Maria’ for the offertory which again really suited the beautiful church. This version of Ave Maria is a personal favourite and is one of pieces that gets the most compliments and best reaction from couples and guests.

For the signing of the register Aysa and Padraig chose some modern ceremony music. If you are having a religious ceremony some Priests may be more strict on what songs they allow. Leaving the more modern pieces to the signing of the register is a good option because the religious ceremony itself is over at this point.

As Aysa and Padraig signed on the dotted line I performed Ellie Gouldings wedding favourite, ‘How long will I love You’. The happy couple then walked out with their gorgeous son Callum to an acoustic piano version of ‘Marry you’ by Bruno Mars.
