Wedding Music Samples

Music is a personal and quite a subjective experience and even the longest list of glowing references does not mean that a certain style will be right for you. You need to hear it to judge for yourself and we aim to provide you with just that opportunity.

There are really two types of wedding music, namely religious church music and secular songs. Both work well for weddings and there can even be an effective mix of these, depending on the nature of the service and the personalities of the wedding couple. Brendan can help you plan the wedding music to suit your service.

Brendan provides wedding singing for the following types of services:
  • Church weddings
  • Civil weddings
  • Civil partnerships
Here is a selection of songs that give a taster of Brendan's style of wedding singing and indeed, his voice.
