Eve’s most frequently asked questions
Q: Are you available for week day weddings?
A: Yes I am available 7 days a week for church weddings, civil ceremonies and drinks reception music.
Q: Do you travel?
A: Yes I travel up to 1 hour from Limerick city and travel fees may apply.
Q: Do you do drinks reception music?
A: Yes, I perform for up to 2 hours at your reception which creates a great atmosphere for your guests at your wedding reception.
Q: When is the best time to book you?
A: I take bookings up to two years in advance. I receive several enquiries for wedding dates and I take bookings on a first come, first served basis.
Q: I have booked musicians already, can you sing with them?
A: Absolutely! As a professional singer I work with a host of different musicians on a regular basis for concerts and events across Munster. I will happily sing with musicians you have booked as long as they are of a professional standard. I will liaise with them directly regarding all your music and will rehearse with them on the morning of your wedding at your venue. This is common practice amongst experienced musical professionals.
Q: Do you do music requests?
A: Yes I do music requests and would be happy to accommodate you! Please ensure that you give me at least 4 weeks notice during busy periods.
Q: Do you do background music before the ceremony?
A: Yes I provide ambient background music as the guests arrive to your venue. I will stop the background music a few minutes before the bridal entrance so your entrance music has more impact as you walk down the aisle.
Q: Do I have to check music with my priest?
A: Yes, please check your music with your priest as a courtesy to make sure that they are happy with your choices! Some churches have very strict guidelines about music but if you have any questions please speak with your priest.
Q: I can’t decide which package I want!
A: You can book me now and decide on a music package later. I have 8 packages to choose from to suit all budgets and musical taste. I have a host of professional musicians that I work with on a regular basis that I would be happy to book on your behalf.
Q: When do I need to choose my music and how?
A: I will contact you 2 months before your wedding to organise music. Most couples like to print their booklets 4 – 8 weeks before their ceremony. This is an ideal time to have your music confirmed.
Q: I’m not sure about some of my music choices but want to get my booklet printed!
A: You can always add a music note symbol like this ♬ to each section of the mass in your booklet instead of listing the names of your pieces. If you are not sure that you have added the music correctly to your booklet please feel free to send me a word doc or pdf of your booklet and I will check it for you.
Q: My priest has asked if you can sing mass parts?
A: As an experienced church soloist I am very familiar with all religious mass parts required. Your priest may be to have the following mass parts sung ‘Holy, Holy’, ‘Acclamation’, ‘Ár nAthair’ etc. As I arrive at your church an hour early to set up I always say hello to your priest and check in with them regarding mass parts. These are small religious lines of music sung during the mass and don’t necessarily need to be included in your booklet.
