“Hey Claire,

Happy New Year to you! Just wanted to take 2 mins to say thanks so much for the fab job you did at our Wedding Saturday week. It all flew by so quickly but I tried as much as possible to take it all in and my mum told me I was doing nothing but singing along to all of the beautiful pieces you played. I can’t wait to see the video played back when we get it so I’ll get a full picture of the whole church and refresh our memories all over again.

Again, Claire, I can’t thank you enough, it was magical – all we thought it would be and more & we’re so delighted we chose you and the harp, it was so fitting for the time of year. Yourself & Anna [violin player] did a smashing job on the entrance, I couldn’t have picked anything better to walk up the aisle to. [“I Loved Her First”]

Best wishes for 2018, I’m sure you’re already up the walls.

The New Mr & Mrs. Fahey :)”

“I never heard anything as beautiful ever at any wedding I ever attended it was out of this world. You have such a beautiful voice and you’re a lovely girl. The whole of the wedding party was talking about the singer 🤗 It made the church cry special yesterday. Xx”

“We had Claire play for a ceremony last month and she was absolutely fantastic! Everyone was commenting about how beautiful the ceremony was! We had harp and vocal and Claire’s voice is amazing!

“Claire a massive thank you for the music on Sat. Ye were absolutely stunning 😍😍 Everyone commented on it and were asking about you!! It was just so perfect and so delighted you were there. You were just brilliant!”

Rachel & David, September 2017

“Every couple will agree that the ceremony part of your wedding is the most nerve wracking part of the day… Claire’s stunning vocals instantly put us at ease instantly. The ceremony was gorgeous and it was all because of her. Even though she is sitting next to you, it sounds like you are listening to a recording because she is so pitch perfect and beautiful. She was faultless in every way. Everybody was asking us about her and commenting on how exceptional she was. Some people even said that it was the BEST church music they had ever heard. As well as being effortlessly brilliant, she was a dream to work with. So responsive and helpful and professional. We would literally recommend her to every single couple who are planning their wedding x”

Everyone commented on your beautiful voice – ‘Down In The River’ and ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ were firm favourites of the guests! Thank you also for accommodating my request for my cousin to sing and for working with him on the song at the last minute. You were so helpful throughout the whole process and made it so much easier to organise the ceremony! You are so talented. We were at another wedding yesterday and numerous people commented on how amazing you were! Sincere thanks again,”

Catherine & Michael, July 2017

“We recently got married in June this year at the Lakeside Hotel and asked Claire to play the harp during our garden ceremony and reception drinks. Claire, an exceptionally talented harpist, has been a pleasure to deal with every step of the way. The whimsical and romantic tones of the harp were the perfect addition to the day.”

“Hi Claire – Sorry I’m only getting to do this now. Can I just say what a fantastic job you did on Thursday – listening to you made walking up that aisle even more magical if that makes any sense – the mass was so special but the music just brought it to another level. So many people were asking about you – everyone felt the same as me.

From the bottom of my heart thanks so much – you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with from beginning to end.

P.s. Florence and the machine went down a storm with everyone 🙂 we made a great choice x”

“Hi Claire, I hope you are keeping well. Thanks again for all of your help on our wedding day, we are only now catching up on everything after our honeymoon and getting back into the swing of things. 

We were absolutely delighted with your singing and music for both the ceremony and the reception. We had high hopes, but it totally surpassed our expectations! The arrangement you did of the The Deer’s Cry was beautiful and was exactly what we were hoping for. All of our guests were telling us how much they enjoyed the music on the day. Your efficiency and professionalism, both beforehand and on the day itself, made the whole process of planning our music a pleasure and never gave us a moment’s worry. We have already recommended you to others, and would not hesitate to do so again. 

Thank you again, we really appreciated all of your help in the lead up to the big day. We aren’t on Facebook but please feel free to use any of the text above for your website. Many thanks and kind regards,”

“Hi Claire, I wish I had the chance to meet you and say hello.  I am now in Italy on our honeymoon, and had to take a moment to thank you properly. You made our special day magical.  Your voice filled the church and the hearts of everyone around us.  Eoin and I are so lucky to have you perform some of the most meaningful songs to us that have been part of our love story since we met.  I thank you for not only being there, but for singing your heart out!  So many of our family and friends expressed how the girl singing at church was amazing, and how your voice was angelic.  Thank you Claire, you are extremely talented, and I will continue to follow you on social media and support any future performances you may be involved in. Your new fans, “

I wanted more than anything to run over to you after the ceremony to thank you in person but I got swept away. I have lost count of how many people thought you did such a fantastic job and I know that both Richard and I loved every bit of it. You were so accommodating to us, even learning a new song (‘Yours’ – It was fantastic!) coming up to the wedding and you made our day and the ceremony so extra special. I would recommend you over and over to anyone I know! Thanks again, Jacqueline x”

Katie & James, July 2015

“Hi Claire, Thank you for your wonderful performance during our civil ceremony. From day one you were a pleasure to deal with, so accommodating + obliging to us with our unique song selection. It was important for us to make the ceremony our own + not go the total traditional route. We love the fact that you allowed us to be true to ourselves with our music choices for the ceremony + even learning one of our favourite songs for the event too made it all the more special – which we are deeply appreciative of. Your performance at the drinks reception also went down great with our guests. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special.”

Elaine & Darragh, June 2015

“Hi Claire, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the music on our special day. You were fabulous and you really helped make the ceremony memorable for me. Of all the things in the wedding, the church music was probably the most important to me and you came up trumps. Loads of the guests were asking me how I found you and they couldn’t get over how fab you were and that I just stumbled upon you in a google search. I’ll recommend  you to  anyone who’ll listen and I’ll pass on your details to all my engaged friends Smiling face with smiling eyes Thanks so so much and the very best of luck for you future. Niamh x”

Josie & Damien, August 2014

“We booked Claire Heffernan after a recommendation from a friend and from first contact she was a pleasure to deal with. We had a humanist ceremony in Ballyseede Castle and the majority of our guests wouldn’t have been at a wedding like this before so it was important to us to create the right atmosphere with a mix of formality and celebration! From talking to Claire over the phone, getting her advice and listening to the music on her website, we knew we were in safe hands! Claire has an amazing voice, she sang and played the harp beautifully. Her rendition of Nella Fantasia was so impressive on the day, really moving. Being multi talented, she also played the piano for our drinks reception, we couldn’t have asked for more! Claire is a true professional, she takes one less stress out of wedding planning and we highly recommend her.” 

Claire-Ann & Colin, June 2014

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email and thank you for the beautiful music during the wedding ceremony on the 5th of April in Cork (Triskel Christchurch). Everybody complimented the music and especially the pieces you played on the harp. Really thank you so much for all your help and for being so responsive to all of our queries. I couldn’t recommend you enough. Thank you again” 

Enrika & David, April 2014

“Everyone commented on how great the music was and they loved the harp. Some even cried when they heard ‘Be Thou My Vision’, so you made a great impression. Once again, Thank you.”

Olive & Mike, March 2014

“Hi Claire, Thank you so much for being part of our special day, the harp and singing together was amazing!!! Everyone commented on how great you sounded and the fantastic recommendations you made with the music choices made the ceremony all the more special! The recognition on people’s faces when you played the Italian ‘Rule the World’ was lovely to see from the altar! Thank you for making our day so special and unique to us 😉 Thank you again, Jill & Steven x”

Jill & Steven, March 2014

Thank you for your professionalism when either I met you or spoke to you on the phone. Many of the guests complimented your playing and thought you had a fabulous voice. What both Neil and I had in our heads was the harp playing to be soft and airy – you knew exactly what we meant and we got it and more, all the way through to the wedding reception. You helped to make our day a very special one. You are very talented, Claire, and we thank you and wish you every good luck with your career.”
