TESTIMONIALS



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. Nov 2020

Barry is an incredibly talented musician. As a musician myself, I knew I would be picky when it came to the music for our wedding. As soon as I heard Barry singing, I knew he was perfect, and I particularly loved how good his diction was, you could hear him singing the lyrics of every song clearly.

Barry played at our family wedding recently (18 guests) and created the most magical atmosphere during the ceremony. He also played for our reception which was lively, upbeat and he had people singing and dancing within a few minutes with a huge range of songs! He interacted with guests in a genuine and fun way playing requests at the drop of a hat, encouraging duets from the crowd, and making everyone laugh too. He was a true professional to work with, learning any music/songs we asked for. With the additional challenge of Covid-19, we had to make some changes and Barry was flexible and supportive throughout. We had full confidence in him throughout and could not recommend him more. You will definitely be missing out if you don’t book him! Our guests were raving about Barry afterwards and loved his entertainment.

Thank you Barry, for enhancing our wedding day and making it extra memorable. It was a joy listening to you sing and play.

“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 definately 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
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 - Virginia Park Lodge, Co. Cavan. July 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.

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
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.

Without a doubt Barry is a complete professionalOlivia & Tom - Bellingham Castle, Co. Louth. Jan 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
 
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 songEllen & Gavin - Ballymagarvery Village, Balrath, Co. Meath. Feb. 2020
The music for the ceremony was absolutely perfect.Frances & John - Palmerstown House Estate, Johnstown, Co. Kildare. March 2020
Barry was a gentleman from start to finish and he really made the ceremony special.Fiona & Michael - Palmerstown House Estate, Johnstown, Co. Kildare. March 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. October 2020
