Davey Music – Weddings

Based In Belfast

The musicians of Davey Music have many years of experience performing at weddings throughout Northern Ireland and beyond.  Our wedding music packages are completely flexible and customisable and will provide only the finest Irish traditional music for any (or every!) part of your wedding day.

Our repertoire for the wedding ceremony is centered on a combination of liturgical, Irish traditional and contemporary music, and we can also include light classical items.

For the drinks reception we usually play a more upbeat selection, with a range of Irish traditional dance music, and songs, if required.

Background music for the wedding dinner can create an elegant atmosphere and after dinner, our evening function band ‘The Blackstaff Céilí Band & Folk Group’ can entertain your guests with all the popular Irish folk and contemporary classics, vocal and instrumental, or, if you would like more audience participation, our we can provide the music for all the favourite Irish céilí dances.

We can also offer a bespoke music composition service, which can provide an original piece of music for the wedding ceremony.  Davey Music is directed by Patrick Davey, a well-known Irish traditional musician from Belfast.

Would highly recommend Davey Music for your big day. Very friendly and supportive in helping us decide what would suit our day best. Patrick talked us through the wide variety of instruments and/or vocals we could choose from and we decided on having them play during the ceremony and our drinks reception. Davey Music created exactly the type of atmosphere we were after. We had so many guests comment on how much they liked the music. We were planning our wedding from England and Patrick made it very easy to organise the music. We only had to give him a sense of the atmosphere we wanted to create and he provided lots of choices. We had such a special day and Davey Music played a big part in that.

I just can’t put into words how grateful I am to Patrick and his team for not only providing the best music both in the Church and at the venue but also for Patrick’s interaction and service which went way beyond the call of duty. Patrick worked with us from the moment I made my first enquiry and was there every step of the long journey due to Covid and postponed wedding plans that ensued. A number of alternate dates were thrown at Patrick at very short notice and he obliged every time and ultimately put together a team of first class musicians who played at the Church and then availed themselves at the Pre-drinks Reception and even came back later on in the evening to play at the Evening Reception. Patrick met with me at his own time and went through the music and then asked to visit the Church so he could view the new post-Covid layout of the Church and arrange where his musicians could be accommodated etc. Service like this is a rarity! I would like to thank Patrick for all his efforts and also for the the very reasonable charge for literally providing a whole day of music, going back and forth from one venue to another. It is quite obvious that Patrick loves what he does and his charges do not reflect the time and effort he spends on delivering a first class service! Thank you Patrick – forever indebted to you!

Patrick was so helpful when we got in contact to book our wedding music and the day we met him in Belfast he was so friendly and welcoming we knew he was going to be perfect for our day. He was so good to work with, and helped us choose songs for our Mass. Our wedding was cancelled in March with covid and Patrick was so flexible and held multiple dates to try and work with us. On the day the church music was so beautiful, we loved it and our guests are still talking about it. Patrick and the girls Colleen and Aoife kindly travelled to Kilronan and played beautiful music at our reception drinks. Not only this but they provided our night’s music, they played our lovely wedding first song and despite covid our guests were on the dance floor (socially distanced) and loved the music. We loved every minute of it. You won’t get any better than Patrick and his musicians.

Thank you so so much to the fabulous Patrick, Bronagh and Aoife. The music at both the church and drinks reception was perfect and set the tone for the rest of the day! You helped to make our day so special, we cannot thank you enough! We would 100% recommend Patrick and his musicians to anyone! During what has been a challenging and stressful time, Patrick made us feel so calm with his bubbly and friendly personality, we knew we were in great hands from the moment we enquired about our wedding! The wedding is now 8 weeks ago and not a day has gone by that my Nanny hasn’t talked about the ‘wonderful’ music at the wedding. We have nothing but praise for you all, thank you so much again

Davey Music provided the wonderful music for our ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding in December. From the moment we booked Patrick, his efficiency in replying to emails was fantastic which added reassurance to an already crazy year! We have always loved traditional Irish music and myself and my husband were keen just to have music with no singing so we searched for musicians and thankfully the fantastic reviews helped us find the amazing Davey Music! Due to the restrictions that 2020 brought we were unable to meet Patrick in person beforehand but that did not stop him from helping us organise and pick our ceremony music, and his experience definitely shone through here! Our guests really enjoyed the drinks reception music and it helped to add a lively atmosphere for the evening ahead. We cannot thank Davey Music enough for travelling to attend our wedding, it was a joy to have you all there, the future wedding couples will be lucky to have you!!
