My Wedding Music Song Lists

I’m delighted I can share my Wedding Music Song Lists with you here. I update this list on a regular basis as I add to my repertoire so be sure to check back regularly to see the new additions. Click the highlighted song titles to listen to a live video recording on YouTube or Facebook.

I play a wide variety of music including Religious Hymns & Songs, Folk, Popular, Country, Classical, Swing, Contemporary and everything in between.

My main instrument is Guitar and I can also incorporate Piano, Low Whistle, Tin Whistle and Ukulele.

Further down on this page you will find a complete list of all the Wedding Music I have performed to date. If there is any particular song/hymn you would like me to perform at your wedding but it does not appear below, please feel free to contact me with your requests.

Reasonable notice should be given when asking for new material to be added (minimum of 4 weeks).

Package Deals are available for Ceremony and Pre-Dinner Reception Music. (I can also provide music for during your wedding banquet and for your Day 2 celebrations)

The full Wedding Music Song List covers everything that is needed for a Church Ceremony.

Certain parts will apply if you are having a Civil, Spiritual or Humanist Wedding Ceremony: Entrance Song / Lighting of Candles / Signing of The Register / Recessional Song. More music can be added to your Civil ceremony depending on what your celebrant suggests and what other elements and rituals you are including in the the ceremony. We can chat about this in finer detail during the planning stages.

The more music the better in my opinion!

Here is an overview of what is needed for your Church Wedding Ceremony Music.
(A template is available For Download & Print HERE)

  • Entrance Song
  • Lighting of Individual Candles
  • Responsorial Psalm
  • Gospel Acclamation / Alleluia
  • Lighting of Centre/Marriage Candle
  • Offertory Procession
  • Holy Communion
  • Signing of State Register
  • Recessional Song

Standard parts of the Mass such as the Holy Holy, Mystery of Faith the Our Father & the Lamb of God can also be sung if required by the priest. This is something I usually discuss with the priest when I arrive to the church on your wedding day.

Now let’s look at some songs! Use the Index below to skip to the section you want to explore.

I can also provide music for your Wedding After Party (separate setlists are available for these options).

I often work with other musicians including cellists, violinists, female vocalists, pianists etc. These are all subject to availability.

A final list of songs should be sent to me at least four weeks before your wedding day. All song choices should be checked with myself and your priest / celebrant before your wedding booklet goes to print.

Christmas Wedding @ Lough Eske Castle

Barry was Amazing when he played at our wedding on the 22nd December 2022. He was prompt in his responses from when we initially contacted him. He was extremely professional, approachable, helpful and relaxed and any request we had he happily obliged.

We really appreciated that he learned Picture This – Unconditional & Niall Horans’ Black And White for the ceremony in such a short space of time. We were blown away at how good they were (along with all of the other requests). On the day, guests were commenting at how amazing he was and they really enjoyed his interactions with guest requests. His involvement and music on the day was instrumental to starting the party that ran late into the night. It made the wedding day extra memorable. All over Christmas when we were catching up with family and friends, they were still commenting on how enjoyable his music was on the day!

We would highly recommend Barry as he will create the perfect atmosphere for your big day.

Go raibh míle maith agat!

Lisa & Paul. Lough Eske Castle, Co. Donegal. December 2022

Day 2 Wedding Party

Barry came up to Zio Restaurant in Portadown for a Sunday afternoon wedding Day 2. We expected a relaxing afternoon winding down from the previous day’s main wedding , with nice background music, but Barry turned it into an amazing party , he reacted to the crowd and had the place bouncing! 80 people dancing at 4.00pm on a Sunday afternoon!
He played some great numbers , from ‘Shallow’ to ‘I’ll Tell Me Ma’ , and lots more greats.
He really helped make it a day to remember !

Stephen (Father of the Bride). Zio Restaurant, Portadown, Co. Armagh. March 2023

We made the best decision to have Barry play at our drinks reception in Darver Castle in February. Barry has a fantastic voice and created such a fun and relaxed atmosphere with his music. He also had plenty of craic with the guests and we heard rave reviews about him all day and after. Barry was so professional and easy to deal with in the run up to the day, I can’t emphasis enough how important it is to have experienced and trustworthy suppliers to alleviate the stress in the run up to the day. Thanks so much again Barry and hopefully hear you play again soon!

Ciara & Conall. Darver Castle, Co. Louth. Feb 2023

Barry performed at our wedding ceremony & drinks reception on 4th Feb in Wrights-Anglers Rest and did an amazing job. We absolutely loved his version of the songs we had chosen. Barry is so professional and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. So many of our guests complimented his work. He played a huge part in helping us create the perfect day. We would recommend Barry without hesitation and would like to take this opportunity to thank him for making our day so memorable.

Edel & Stephen. Wrights Anglers Rest, Strawberry Beds, Co. Dublin. Feb 2023

We had Barry for our church ceremony and drinks reception afterwards in Kilronan Castle, Co. Roscommon. Barry is such a gentleman to work with. He was always there to email back and forth with song choices and advice with the church. Barry really creates a nice atmosphere at the drinks reception, a hit with all ages and made our day extra special! He’s got a superb voice – which helps too 😉 Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Devine

Orlaith & James. St. Anne's Church Scramogue & Kilronan Castle, Co. Roscommon. Feb 2023

We had Barry for our church and venue music and he was AMAZING!! Barry played during our ceremony, he even met with my friend the week before as she sang too and he accompanied. By the time we met Barry we had our music for our drinks reception organised by a family friend so I asked Barry would he play music during our meal which he kindly agreed to do. This was the best decision, he was brilliant! He even learnt a song for our entrance music. It really set the atmosphere for the day and we loved every minute, as did our guests. Barry is a pro, if you have him on your wedding day you are in for a treat!!

Emma & Shane. Darver Church & Darver Castle, Co. Louth. May 2022

Barry performed both at our wedding ceremony and at our wedding party and we couldn’t be happier with both. He is so talented and professional, our guests were absolutely raving about him! Barry is such a talented musician, he knows the perfect song for every occasion and responds to what the audience enjoy. On top of being so talented he is such a genuine, friendly person and such a pleasure to deal with. Cannot recommend Barry enough, he is a class act.

Brendan & Eva. Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. Aug 2022

Day 2 Celebrations

Barry performed our day 2 music in Cabra Castle and we couldn’t fault him. Stress free, with sore heads from the wedding that’s what was needed!! Barry played loads of favourites and had people up dancing. We couldn’t ask for any more, would definitely recommend!

Claire & Christopher. Cabra Castle, Co. Cavan. Aug 2022

From the first time I heard Barry sing I knew we would have to have him at our wedding ceremony. He was absolutely fantastic and so amazing to work with. We still have so many of our wedding guests contacting us about how wonderfully Barry sang Raglan Road at our ceremony. It is by far the best version I have ever heard. He is a an amazing musician, so talented and really made our ceremony and wed-festival a beautiful day to remember. Thank you so much Barry and we are already planning to go see you play live again in the near future.

Rosie & Carrie. Hotel Doolin, Doolin, Co. Clare. Sept 2022

I am a wedding celebrant and marriage solemniser (Kathryn Cashman) and I know that it is very important to have a wedding singer who is willing to go that extra mile to add ambiance and magic to your ceremony. Barry has an amazing voice and is a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Barry as your wedding singer for your ceremony and drinks reception.

Kathryn Cashman, The Dunlow Hotel & Gardens, Killarney, Co. Kerry. Nov 2022

We booked Barry after listening to his music on his YouTube channel.
Hearing a male voice sing at a wedding seems to be such a rarity. We loved the tone of his voice, his take on hymns and popular music.
But it does not even come close to listening to him live.
Dealing with him was a breeze.
Listening to him at our own wedding day was simply breathtaking.
Our guests are still talking about the beautiful music he provided.

There’s nothing left to say but simply, thank you Barry for everything!
We hope to hear you again soon!

Louise & David, St. Catherine's Dominican Church, Newry. Nov 2022

We have a constant supply of guests who are asking how we came about such a wonderful singer.

Annabel & Janet. 4 Seasons Hotel, Monaghan. Sept 2021

His vocals and music for the pre-ceremony, ceremony and drinks reception were amazing, we kept getting compliments from the guests all day and it really was a lovely background to the whole afternoon.

Heather & Mark. Harvey's Point Hotel, Donegal. Aug 2021

From our initial meeting to the many emails that were sent in preparation for our big day, Barry was a true professional – always prompt to respond and catered to our every request.

Brídín & Gary. Bellingham Castle. Aug 2021

He brought our Wedding Mass to a new level.

Aoiffe & Aidan. Kildimo Church, Co. Limerick. July 2021

Barry performed for our wedding in Co. Clare & we could not have been happier with our music choice. Barry has everything under control and our guests were blown away by his voice.

Kelli & Bryan. Ennis Cathedral & Dromoland Castle. July 2021

Barry played our ceremony in City Hall Dublin. He was truly amazing. All of our guests commented on the quality of his voice and playing. He played pre & post ceremony and created the most magical atmosphere. From our first contact he was so helpful and professional and made the whole process so easy. Nothing was too much trouble and he even learned a song that we wanted to include. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Caroline & Trevor. Dublin City Hall. June 2021

Covid Wedding

Barry is simply the best. We first heard Barry sing at my cousins wedding almost 6 years ago and it was our first decision we made when planning our wedding. Initially Barry had been booked and we were gutted but lucky for us covid worked in our favour as he became available on our date. We are married almost 8 weeks now and still people are saying how amazing Barry was and the large choice of songs he can sing makes it hard to narrow down what to choose. As we had a level 5 Lockdown Wedding, Barry sang our first dance song after our ceremony and it was all kinds of magic!
If you are planning a wedding, first things first, get in touch with Barry you will not regret it

Ruth & Anthony. Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin. December 2020

Barry has become a good friend to us over the last 18 months or so. He has been with us on our wedding journey through two cancellations and we finally got to tie the knot on 16th January. I cannot praise Barry’s professionalism and genuineness enough, not to mention his amazing talent. We are hoping for a vow renewal on our 1st anniversary and hope Barry can perform, we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Michelle & Liam. Killashee Hotel, Naas, Co. Kildare. January 2021

Barry played at our Wedding in November 2020 at The Alex Hotel. He was outstanding, beautiful vocals and exceptional guitar playing. We had 25 guests on the day and they all were singing his praises. Since booking Barry he was always kind considerate and professional and couldn’t have been more helpful as our plans changed multiple times due to the pandemic. I truly don’t think you will find anyone better.

Tanya & Matthew. The Alex Hotel, Dublin. November 2020

We would highly recommend Barry for any wedding ceremony / reception drinks (we had him at both for ours). Barry was wonderful from the beginning. He was very accomodating when our original wedding date changed. He was in regular contact with us from start to finish. He learnt a few of our favourite songs so they could be played/ sang on our big day. Most of our guests commented on how wonderful he was. Having a smaller wedding we were worried the room may seem empty- but Barry ensured that wasn’t the case & ensured guests were enjoying themselves.
In addition he is a pure gent to deal with.

Lynne & Kevin. Clontarf Church & Rathsallagh House Hotel, Co. Wicklow. December 2020

Barry is a very dear friend of ours and we are so privileged to have had him sing at our wedding on NYE. He performed at our ceremony and drinks reception and genuinely added sparkle to our day. Nothing is a problem for Barry, he will learn a song if you request it. Knowing how much of a Westlife fan I am, he played a Shane Filan song as myself and my husband arrived into the hotel. Our guests, though few, absolutely loved his voice and could have listened to him all day. Barry’s winning personality and professionalism adds to the day without a doubt!

Emily & Martin. Rock Chapel Magheracloone & Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. December 2020

Barry Hughes what can I say… Class.

We had Barry play at our wedding for church ceremony and pre-drinks reception, to say he was amazing is an understatement. We had a small wedding of 25 people and on plan Z at this stage but that didn’t matter because the atmosphere Barry created was phenomenal. He’s a true gent, a professional, a top class performer and he made our special day magical.
If anyone needs a guy to be present in the moment and to feed off the energy in the room Barry is your man.
Thank you Barry,

Lee and Wayne.

Lisa & Wayne. Fallon's of Kilcullen, Co. Kildare. November 2020

Micro Wedding – October 2020

Barry was booked last minute to play the evening of our wedding. He was a pleasure to deal with and so accommodating from the start. The music Barry provided created a fantastic atmosphere which with only 25 people made such a difference to our night. He was lively, entertaining and took any requests with a smile. I’d guess that Barry could play anything put to him and could adapt to any scenario. It was a joy to listen to him on our wedding night and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Orla & Damien. Darver Castle, Co. Louth - Wedding Reception, October 2020

Micro Wedding Sept 2020

Barry sang at our wedding party a couple of weeks ago and I would highly recommend him especially given the current uncertain times driven by Covid19. Our wedding party had only 14 people and Barry had every guest on the dance-floor! The energy and atmosphere was fantastic! Barry has a large set of songs and he selected a great variety of upbeat songs for the day including playing some requested songs for our first dance and a special song for our son. All our guests thought he was fantastic and he made our small wedding party ever more special and rememberable!! We will be having Barry at our postponed wedding party in 2022 when hopefully we can have all our friends and family with us but I would highly recommend any couple who are going ahead with their micro wedding this year to book Barry, you will not be disappointed.

Miriam & Dominic. Wedding Reception, September 2020

A Huge Thank you Barry for playing our drinks reception for our intimate wedding day especially with the ever changing guidelines and restrictions. It was a big relief to know we could rely on you even in such challenging times and thank you for being so accommodating!! Your beautiful music was a breath of fresh air to welcome us all to the reception. Everyone loved to hear you play. Hope to be hearing more of your music in the near future!! Sincere thank you!!

Laura & Michael. Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan. September 2020

We had Barry sing at our wedding ceremony in St. Josephs Church, Carrickmacross. I cannot recommend him enough, if you are anyway unsure just have a look through some of Barry’s videos or even watch one of his live gigs. He was so professional and really helpful when it came to picking our music, he sent us a link showing what parts of our wedding we needed music for which was really helpful. On the day itself he provided a unique and warm vibe to our wedding ceremony and he added our personal touch to the music. Our guests also had nothing but great reviews about Barrys music.

Amy & Dean. St. Joseph's Church, Carrickmacross. September 2020

We had a rescheduled intimate wedding due to the Covid restrictions. Barry was patient and professional with us as we tried to plan our ceremony at short notice, and was happy to learn a song for the bride’s entrance. He played the low whistle and the tin whistle for some beautiful instrumental pieces and then some fun tunes on the guitar during our small drinks reception afterwards. Barry is super talented and we were delighted with every aspect of our dealings with him. We would definitely recommend Barry to anyone looking to get married, especially anyone opting for a smaller more personal event during these strange times.

Maeve & Brendan. Virgina Park Lodge, Co. Cavan. July 30th 2020

Having had the privilege of seeing Barry perform on several occasions, I knew immediately that I wanted him singing me down the aisle on our wedding day! We were lucky he was available and when selecting our songs, he couldn’t have been more accommodating, offered insightful advice and was always accessible. On the day itself, he was ever the professional, sang beautifully, played incredible music, made the songs his own and made the ceremony feel like a true celebration. We still receive high praise from the music on the day! We would highly recommend Barry for your special day/occasion as he will just make it even more memorable. Thank you so much once again, Barry

Sarah & Colin

I cannot tell you how much praise you received from our family and friends….. I myself was quite nervous arriving to the church but as I heard you singing I relaxed straight away.
I couldn’t get over how many of our guests commented to us on the day, even the hotel manager asked me for your details so he could recommend you to future couples. Everybody thought you were amazing, I can honestly say, we were so delighted to have had you sing at our wedding day.Thank you so much Barry a true professional 🙂

Melissa & Xiao

Barry played at our wedding reception and at our after party the next day. We were absolutely delighted on both occasions. He played relaxed chilled out music at the reception and a huge mix of songs the next day. Lots of our guests made comments about how good Barry was on guitar and vocals. Would definitely not hesitate in recommending Barry. He is a very talented musician and you will not be disappointed.

Peter & Yvonne

Our wedding day was enhanced by having Barry Hughes perform both at the ceremony and our reception. The music helped make the ceremony a warm embracing and memorable experience for us, and every comment from our guests about the music then and at the reception afterwards was huge praise for your voice and talents. Absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a musician/singer to bring that something extra to the day.

Mick & Ann

Before i walked up the aisle I had a smile on my face at how beautiful he made it sound.

Stephanie & Paddy. St. Joseph's Church, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. Oct 2019

Without a doubt Barry is a complete professional

Olivia & Tom. Bellingham Castle, Co. Louth. January 2020

The way he performed our entrance song – ‘Let it Breathe’ by The Water Liars – had most of the room (including the groom) in tears. In saying this, he also had the room dancing during our exit song

Ellen & Gavin. Ballymagarvey Village, Balrath, Co. Meath. February 2020

The music for the ceremony was absolutely perfect

Fiona & Micheal. Palmerstown House Estate, Johnstown, Co. Kildare. March 2020
