JENNY O’BRIEN WEDDING MUSIC


Welcome and congratulations!

You’ve started planning your wedding, and your ceremony is at the heart of your big day.

Jenny O’Brien is a singer and pianist based in Co. Galway, Ireland. She has been a professional wedding ceremony music specialist for many years, travelling nationwide to perform at all kinds of wedding ceremonies.

As a trained vocalist and pianist she sings and accompanies herself, giving you a wide and varied selection of musical styles and a large repertoire to work from, and is always happy to learn special new music that is meaningful to you and your wedding ceremony.

You’ll find lots of information on this website about how to choose, book and perfect your own wedding ceremony music – with songlists and ceremony samples, along with videos, soundclips, reviews and more, which hopefully you will find helpful, for planning the very best music for your wedding ceremony, on your big day.


Couples often ask…..

What kind of ceremony does Jenny perform at?

Over the years Jenny has performed at many Church and Civil ceremonies – from Catholic, Humanist, HSE Registrar Civil, Church of Ireland, Spiritual, Interfaith, Celtic, Scottish Presbyterian, Solemniser Civil, and various forms of marriage blessing.

How do we start choosing our music?

The best plan begins with the two most important pieces – your Entrance and Exit music. These bookend the proceedings and can set the tone for choosing other pieces complimentary to your particular ceremony plan.

We have a favourite piece of music, can Jenny learn it for us?

Yes, wherever possible, and with adequate notice, she will learn and perform a special piece of music – always happy to extend her repertoire.

How many songs do we need for our ceremony?

You can use the suggested ceremony guides here as a starting point, and Jenny will be discussing the exact structure of your ceremony and the necessary number of pieces with you as you move toward your date.

How do we book and do we pay a booking fee?

As with all suppliers, a booking fee is required to reserve your wedding ceremony booking, for your specified date and location – you can contact Jenny to check her availability for your date and from there she will send you all the information you need to organise your booking.

Can my aunty/brother/bridesmaid perform a song during the ceremony?

Yes, of course! Jenny can accommodate any of your guests who you wish to partake in the music element of your ceremony. Once the request comes from you, and with adequate notice, she can advise when and where this might be most appropriate as it’s always very meaningful when a close friend or family member perfoms a special song for you. She will use her professional experience to make them comfortable and at ease as it can be nerve-wracking but always works out fine 🙂
