The Northern Traditional Wedding Band - Traditional Irish Group
This Traditional Irish group of musicians of have been performing traditional Irish music at weddings and other church services for many years. The inclusion of traditional Irish airs and hymns or songs can add a special touch to a church or civil ceremony, particularly if the wedding guests include visitors from overseas.
They provide a comprehensive service to assist couples in choosing their wedding music, to include the following:
• Meeting with the couple as often as they wish beforehand
• Suggesting & performing a range of pieces for the couple’s consideration
• Liaising with the celebrant beforehand and on the day
Occasionally couples may have their own ideas about the pieces they wish to have included in their wedding music programme and the group always welcome this. If necessary, they can compose special arrangements of pieces and can also include a number of light classical pieces if requested.
They can also perform traditional Irish music during your wedding reception, such as during the drinks reception and dinner. Providing music during the drinks reception can help create a unique and welcoming atmosphere for the guests as they await the return of the bridal party. There are many options available for reception music, including:
• Solo harp
• Harp & flute
• Harp, flute & fiddle
• A larger ‘session’ type group including for example uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion and guitar

The Northern Traditional Wedding Band - Traditional Irish Group Feedback
“Absolutely fantastic wedding group! From the moment they arrived at the church right through to the drinks reception, they were simply fantastic. We couldn't have hoped for better on our big day, smartly dressed, very professional, and most importantly they sounded amazing, great Celtic, traditional sound which our guests commented on many times on the day. Would highly recommend. Thanks for everything.

“Patrick and his team played at our ceremony and drinks reception. They made our ceremony really special and played perfectly from start to finish. The planning was very smooth with great response via emails and a meeting with Patrick. Patrick and his team even learned a jig that was written in memory of my dad. It was really hard to find some good traditional music for our wedding. We made the best choice and our guests loved it. You really made our day extra special and we cannot thank and recommend you enough.

“Patrick could not do enough for us, first of all we had a meeting to discuss what music we wanted, he give us a demo of different Instruments with different songs. Over the following weeks we contacted each other through emails and phone calls to iron out what we wanted with one item we thought was a big deal but it turned out it was not to them,we had a song we would liked played but it was not known to Patrick, he said no problem get me the music I will learn it and play it for you and so he did beautifully. On the day of the wedding our celebrant altered the run of the mass slightly again they took it in their stride and just went with it, we also got them to play at our drinks reception for us with a trad feel to it to get the party started and it really worked we can not recommend them enough and if you are lucky enough to have them play at your wedding you will definitely not be disappointed Thank you so much for helping to make our day

“For our wedding we knew that we wanted some Classical & Traditional musical elements for our ceremony and they were a perfect fit. Patrick was so great to deal with, and worked with us in a professional, calm, relaxed and very flexible manner. We had Patrick on the flute, and his fellow musicians on harp and violin and it was perfect! I walked down the aisle to Gabriel’s Oboe, and it was just beautiful. I asked my brother if he would sing and play his guitar for one of the songs, and Patrick and the girls had no problem with learning Beyoncé’s ‘Halo’ a couple of days before the wedding! They arrived early to rehearse it with my brother and when they played, it was breath taking and so moving. Most of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was, and in particular that one piece – as one person said ‘it was so moving, you could hear a pin drop!’ So ‘thank you’ Patrick for making our ceremony so personal and special. If you are looking for great wedding musicians, I would whole-heartedly recommend them!

“We were very impressed with the band's professionalism, flexibility and attention to detail. They gave us some tips and advice on several occasions and was very accommodating when we asked for songs not on their sample list. On the day, they arrived well before the ceremony started, and continued to play until all of the guests had left at the end. Personally I felt that having traditional Irish musicians added so much to the ceremony and really was head and shoulders above your standard keyboard player and singer. Top marks guys. Highly recommended!
