Simply the best!!

Booking Barry was thee best decision we made for our wedding. He played at our church ceremony first and then moved on to play at our drinks reception. We thoroughly enjoyed choosing the songs for our day using his super helpful website. We were spoiled for choice and struggled to pick between all the amazing videos he has on there. The music in the church was simply amazing one of the guests said to me only yesterday "I've been to a lot of weddings but he's the best singer I ever heard". He then had our drinks reception hoping, taking requests from guests and making sure that it stayed lively like we wanted. Barry is such a gent and was a pleasure to deal with! We couldn't recommend him highly enough!! Aisling and Alan

Amazing musician!

We booked Barry over two years before our wedding in February 2024 because from the first time we heard his music we knew he was who we wanted to sing at our wedding. Dealing with Barry was always a pleasure as he was so responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. He has such an extensive song list that it was hard to narrow down which songs we wanted as he performs them all so brilliantly. Nothing was ever an issue for Barry and his relaxed manner helped put us at ease when there were so many decisions to make for the wedding. One the day Barry sang at our church ceremony and also the reception. His music was fantastic and we can’t wait to get our wedding video so we can hear it all over again. He was even kind enough to allow me to use his equipment to perform a song at the reception. We would highly recommend Barry to anyone for their wedding, or any other event also. He was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. 5 stars! Ian & Michelle

Book Barry.

Barry came recommended to me by a friend and I'm very grateful to have secured him to play at our wedding. He brought a fun positive vibe to our day. Not only is he amazingly talented, handsome and funny he is extremely accommodating. From multiple venue changes to date changes to song choices nothing was an issue. I didn't want him to stop playing on the day. Couldn't recommend him more, 10/10. Thanks Barry💞

Barry did the music for our wedding ceremony on the 1st December - he was absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t recommend him enough! Any of the songs we requested, he did brilliantly. I even decided to make a few late requests (the night before!!) and again, no issues! A number of people commented to me after about how good the church music was 😊 Thank you so much Barry for making the ceremony so memorable 😊 Grace & David

Incredible wedding singer

From the second we booked Barry for our wedding we knew we made the best decision! Our guests are still speaking about his stunning rendition of Raglan Road 2 years prior to our wedding we found Barry on YouTube & he was singing Raglan Road, instantly we emailed him & thankfully he was free on our date! Barry was a gentleman to deal with, the kindest supplier we had, his website makes picking music stress free & fun, Barry covered our church music & our drinks reception music & he was just incredible! If you are thinking of booking a wedding singer, we would both highly highly recommend Barry!

We can't express enough how thrilled we were with Barry Jay Hughes as our wedding singer for both the church ceremony and the reception. From start to finish, he was absolutely brilliant and exceeded all our expectations. During the church ceremony, Barry's performance was nothing short of enchanting. He played all the songs we had requested flawlessly, creating an atmosphere that was truly magical. His voice filled the sacred space beautifully, and it was evident that he poured his heart and soul into every note. Many of our guests commented on how moving and touching the music was, and it added an extra layer of emotion to the ceremony. When it came time for the reception, Barry transitioned seamlessly into getting the party started. He knew exactly how to read the crowd and played a fantastic mix of songs that had everyone on their feet and dancing before the meal. His energy and enthusiasm were infectious, and he played a significant role in setting the tone for the entire evening. If you're in search of a talented musician for your wedding day, both in the church and at the reception, I wholeheartedly recommend Barry Jay Hughes. His musical talent, professionalism, and ability to connect with the audience are truly exceptional. He made our wedding day even more special, and we couldn't be happier with his performance. Barry is undoubtedly the man you want to make your wedding day unforgettable. Oksana & Darren

Ceremony singer

When we started looking for a wedding singer we wanted someone unique and when we heard Barry playing his instruments and singing we knew he was the perfect fit. From our initial contact Barry was a true professional, taking time in guiding us with our song choices to ensure everything was perfect. Our guests were entertained before the bridal party arrival with several beautiful songs that set the tone for the ceremony itself and my god the ceremony was just stunning. Each song now holds a special memory and gives me goosebumps when I hear them. Barry contacted us after our wedding thanking us for having him play at our wedding but it’s us that should be thanking him. He was the perfect addition to our wedding and I would strong recommend him to any couple getting married

Barry the best!!

We initially found out about Barry through his social media pages and knew that he would be great for our drinks reception music! Communication and his attention to detail was amazing so we instantly knew we had made the right choice! Before the day he provided playlists to choose songs from or even said he would learn some if we wanted specific ones! By this point we knew Barry was the one! We particularly wanted a good blend between traditional Irish songs and more moderns songs which was no bother to him! On the day everyone loved him, his voice and his playing! He got the party started, guests were dancing and he set the tone for the wedding perfectly for us. Barry is a fab musician and singer and I recommend him 100% if anyone is looking for their wedding also! No venue or party size is too big or small for him and he goes above and beyond to entertain! Thankyou so much Barry!! You made our dream wedding at Cabra Castle that bit more perfect! Stuart and Martin x

Church singer

We had the pleasure of experiencing a truly magical wedding ceremony, all thanks to the incredible talent of our church wedding singer Barry. From the moment the first note filled the church, it was evident that we were in the presence of a true musical virtuoso. Barry's voice was nothing short of angelic, resonating with a warmth and clarity that brought tears to our eyes. Each song was delivered with such emotion and passion that it felt like the music was weaving a tapestry of love and devotion around us. Not only was the vocal performance flawless, but Barry's choice of songs was impeccable. He seamlessly blended traditional hymns with contemporary favorites, creating a musical journey that appealed to guests of all ages. It was a testament to his versatility and ability to cater to the diverse tastes of the congregation. What truly stood out was Barry's ability to capture the essence of the occasion. He understood the importance of this sacred moment and translated it into his music, elevating the ceremony to a level of spirituality and reverence that left a lasting impression on everyone present. Barry's professionalism was equally commendable. He arrived early, he worked closely with us to choose the perfect repertoire. His presence was a source of calm and reassurance amidst the flurry of wedding preparations. In conclusion, Barry was not just a performer he was a storyteller who painted a musical masterpiece on the canvas of our hearts. His talent and dedication elevated our wedding ceremony to a sublime and unforgettable experience. We are forever grateful for his contribution to our special day, and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking a wedding singer who can turn moments into memories with the power of his voice. Thank you Barry, Sam & Áine Ward.

We had Barry singing at our reception drinks for our wedding in the Greenhills hotel Limerick. It was truly amazing and everyone said how amazing his voice was and music selection. He had people up off there seats dancing. We were so pleased with everything and received many compliments on his voice and music. Would highly recommend. Thanks again for an amazing Day!

10/10 Barry is in a league of his own!

We recently had the pleasure of having Barry perform for our wedding day 2 celebration! From the moment we enquired he was a pleasure to deal with. Our guests were blown away by him, his ability to blend into the crowd as if he knows them personally is an art he has mastered. He adapted the set to suit the crowd, took on all requests, and even had a guest or two up to sing alongside him. Barry charges very reasonable rates when you consider the talent and skill he has. All music played live, no backing tracks. He also uses the loop pedal to add different layers to his performance. A gentleman through and through and a wonderful performer. Will definitely book Barry for other events in future.

Barry was Brilliant

Barry played at our church ceremony and the at the drinks reception in the hotel afterwards. To say we were impressed would be an understatement. He was amazing and made the ceremony really really special. It was mentioned to us numerous times how good the music was and I would recommend Barry 100%. We also found it very simple to pick our songs because Barry has such a selection on his social media and I can confirm there is no camera magic, what you see on Barry’s videos is what you get in real life. His simple form (with suggestions) for song selection and his timely responses via email made the whole process very easy on us during a very busy time in the lead up to the wedding. thanks again Barry, you were superb, Alan & Claire

Tinakilly Wedding

Barry played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in Tinakilly House in Wicklow in February and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He was absolutely brilliant. The songs for our ceremony were quite eclectic, but Barry made sure everything flowed seamlessly. He really got the party started at the drinks reception and the dancing started early! Barry was also a pleasure to deal with, a really decent, friendly guy and very professional. Look no further, book Barry, you’ll be happy you did. Niall & Deirdre.

Talented Musician

Barry played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception on 29th April 23 at the Step House Hotel, Borris, Co. Carlow. We had originally booked Barry for the ceremony only but after meeting with our celebrant who had worked with him previously, we were convinced to ask him to stay for the drinks reception too and we are so glad that we did! Barry was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and even learned a new song for our ceremony (thanks again Barry!). The atmosphere at the drinks reception was excellent and so many people commented on the range of music that Barry was playing. He was even taking requests from our guests. It really set a great tone for the entire night. We would book him again in a heart beat.

A huge thank you to Barry who performed music for us on our Wedding Day in March. Barry was a pleasure to work with and readily agreed to learning music for our day from our song choices. Barry was a wonderful addition to our ceremony and all of our guests have agreed! My entrance song was sang beautifully and better than I had imagined it. We enjoyed every minute of the music and wish to thank you so much for making our day even more special. Laura & Eoghan x

Ceoltóir den scoth!

Ón gcéad teachtaireacht a chuir mé air, bhí Barry ar fheabhas. Ní raibh fadhb ar both le aon rud, agus chaith sé dua mór millteach leis. Barry was kind, helpful and more than accommodating to help us create the perfect music list for our wedding. He learned and beautifully played a piece that was close to our hearts on low whistle, and sang (and played) both in English agus as Gaeilge for us, as our ceremony was a mixed language one. Every guest commented on his incredible voice and wide variety of genres that he played for both our ceremony and reception. He was a gentleman from start to finish, and would book him again in a heartbeat given the opportunity! We honestly can’t thank Barry enough for making our day personal and special to us. Go raibh míle maith agat Barry!

Lough Eske Castle - Christmas Wedding

Barry was Amazing when he played at our wedding in Lough Eske Castle, Donegal on the 22nd December 2023. He was prompt in his responses from when we initially contacted him. He was extremely professional, approachable, helpful and relaxed and any request we had he happily obliged. We really appreciated that he learned Picture This - Unconditional & Niall Horans' Black And White for the ceremony in such a short space of time. We were blown away at how good they were (along with all of the other requests). On the day, guests were commenting at how amazing he was and they really enjoyed his interactions with guest requests. His involvement and music on the day was instrumental to starting the party that ran late into the night. It made the wedding day extra memorable. All over Christmas when we were catching up with family and friends, they were still commenting on how enjoyable his music was on the day! We would highly recommend Barry as he will create the perfect atmosphere for your big day. Go raibh míle maith agat! Lisa & Paul Melbourne, Australia

Brilliant musician

We made the best decision to have Barry play at our drinks reception in Darver Castle in February. Barry has a fantastic voice and created such a fun and relaxed atmosphere with his music. He also had plenty of craic with the guests and we heard rave reviews about him all day and after. Barry was so professional and easy to deal with in the run up to the day, I can’t emphasis enough how important it is to have experienced and trustworthy suppliers to alleviate the stress in the run up to the day. Thanks so much again Barry and hopefully hear you play again soon!

Years later after hearing him for the first time I booked Barry and was delighted he was available. Barry was absolutely fantastic for our wedding mass. From the first contact Barry was very professional, quick to respond and offered me so much help and suggestions. His vocals and music for our mass, were amazing. I could not recommend Barry enough.

Highly Recommend

Firstly I want to thank Barry so much for the amazing work he did on the 29th of October. The ceremony and the drinks reception are moments in the day that people talk about so fondly. Asking us how do we know you, and how we found you. During Covid, it is so hard to look at different acts and pick who will be perfect for the day. Music is so important to us. Barry was exactly how he is on social media! When you sang the bridal procession song, The book of love, I think everyone took note of the music immediately. He was on the ball with picking music in places, where honestly, forgot to tell you there was suppose to be music. You also dealt with family members requests to sing very well too! We would highly recommend Barry!

I can only say great things about Barry. He was fantastic for us on our wedding day, as he performed the music for our wedding ceremony & our drinks reception. Barry has a huge library of music to select ceremony songs from, which he performed perfectly on the day, and he sang a wonderful set for our drinks reception which our guests loved and have given us loads of positive feedback since. I would highly recommend Barry if you are planning a wedding or event.

Louth on the August Bank Holiday and I'm so glad she did as he really made the day and set such a fun but chill atmosphere! He has an amazing voice and such a brilliant repertoire of songs, he was taking requests all evening and just good craic and bantering away with us all, he even had some of our guests up singing with him by the end! We were all devastated when he had to finish up, he could have kept the crowd going all night, thats my only feedback wish we had of booked him for longer! We found Barry Jay so easy to communicate with, really friendly and interested in how he could tailor his performance to the occassion

Barry was absolutely brilliant! We had an outdoor wedding in Martinstown House on a lovely summer's day and Barry played for the ceremony and the reception. We could not have been happier to have him play at our wedding! We chose two songs for the wedding entrance, one for the bridesmaids and another for the bride. I remember thinking the transition from one to the other was so smooth. I was absolutely blown away. Although I was already a bit emotional watching my bride walk up the aisle, Barry's beautiful version of the song tipped me over the edge :) Everyone commented on how great the reception music was as well... the perfect soundtrack to our day! Barry was very easy to deal with and accommodated all our song requests without any hassle whatsoever... an absolute pro! And a gent as well. Highly recommend!

Barry made our day magical!

Barry is a talented musician, pure gentleman, and an extremely talented performer. We booked Barry after hearing him play an intimate gig, and instantly knew he was the singer for our wedding day. He was very professional from the start and communicated with us throughout our planning – including accommodating our change of date due to COVID. His voice was perfect for our ceremony, with every word heartfelt. At reception, he engaged with the guests, took requests from the crowd, and had them singing and dancing along – the perfect start to a wonderful day. People were raving about him afterwards, and really enjoyed his entertainment. We’d highly recommend Barry, he will create great atmosphere to your wedding ceremony and reception.

Myself and Dee had Barry as our ceremony singer in St Kevin’s Church, Hollywood, Co Wicklow. From when we booked Barry to the weeks leading up to the wedding he was incredibly easy to deal with. He made time to cater for all our specific requests of songs that were personal to us which massively added to our ceremony. There wasn’t a song that we requested that he didn’t have in his repertoire. He is friendly, approachable and genuinely seems to love what he does. He performs brilliant renditions of beautiful Irish songs instrumentally and vocally. We are delighted we were lucky enough to have you at our wedding Barry. Míle buíochas duit. Tá súil againn go bhfeicfimid arís thú! Macdara agus Dee

Barry performed at our wedding in Doolin. Despite being based in Monaghan, it was impressive that he made the trek down! He is super talented. His versions of the songs we requested were all excellent, and everyone from the wedding guests to our celebrant raved about how good Barry was! Barry played our drinks reception also, and we heard was also brilliant there! He was so good, he even managed to book another date from one of our family members for their own wedding in a couple of months. Barry and his music were a massive part of our day and we would like to sincerely thank him the great job that he done! Would very highly recommend - you will not be disappointed!

Highly recommended

Barry was a pleasure to deal with right from the beginning. Quick or immediate responses to every enquiry we had. Had a wide variety of songs that he performed amazingly. Everyone at the wedding, including musicians we had as guests were complimenting him. Highly recommended.

Hire this man!

Having seen and heard Barry perform at a Family wedding and again a few weeks later at a friends wedding, we knew immediately we had to have him sing on our day. He is an absolute gentleman to deal with, and had no problem adding a special request for Genesis to his repertoire. So many of our guests commented on how brilliant he was during both the church ceremony and the drinks reception, he had great banter with our guests taking requests and our nephew loved his version of George Ezra! We would have no hesitation in recommending Barry for anyones wedding day, and hope to go to one of his gigs very soon. Donna & Allan 19.02.22

Ceremony & Drinks Reception

Barry was one of the very first suppliers we booked. After hearing him at my sister and friends wedding we knew straight away we wanted him to do our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. Barry went above and beyond and nothing was to much for him, he also learned new songs that we wanted on our day. We highly recommend Barry to any future couples you will not be disappointed!

Barry was fantastic at our wedding. He read the room well and our guests enjoyed his performance. We would highly recommend him to anybody. We had some uncertainty around the pandemic during our planning and Barry was professional throughout.

Excellent service and incredible performance

Barry was very responsive from the start. Helping with our choices of music and being on hand with any questions we had. His lists of potential pieces of music for different parts of the service was really useful. His performance during the service was incredible, everyone we spoke to commented on how brilliant he was. Thank you for an exceptional service.

Ceremony music

We cannot thank Barry enough for the music he provided for our wedding ceremony. He is incredibly talented and the music was so beautiful for our ceremony. It was just perfect and I could not fault anything. He was so responsive to my emails right from the start and very helpful in choosing songs. All of our guests have commented on how good he was. Thank you Barry for everything, you are so talented and we are so happy to have had you play for our wedding. Would 100% recommend. From Donna and Stephen Grant

Such a memorable day!

Barry played at our mass in St McCartan's Cathedral in Monaghan a few weeks ago. He played with my friend and was super responsive from day 1. He learned one song in particular for us and nothing was ever a problem. He also played at our drinks reception in Castle Leslie and everyone commented on his beautiful music. I wish I could do it all again and I would 100% pick Barry each time!

Amazing musician

Barry sang for our church wedding in Killarney in September and we can't recommend him highly enough. From our first email to Barry nothing was ever a problem and he was so approachable. His website and list of songs made it so easy for us to choose our music. We received several comments from our guests and our priest that the church music was beautiful. We couldn't be happier with the service provided. Ciara and Dan

Barry Hughes Wedding Singer

We could not have been more delighted with Barry singing at our ceremony and later on for a drinks reception. He went to the trouble of learning a song for us which he delivered superbly in our ceremony. Thank you so much very you truly made our day special. We have a constant supply of guests who are asking how we came about such a wonderful singer. Thank you Barry so much. Annabel & Janet

Fabulous Music!

Barry was absolutely fantastic for our wedding in Harvey's Point, Donegal. From the first contact Barry was always very professional and quick to respond and offer any help or suggestions. He arrived early to the venue and was extremely friendly. His vocals and music for the pre-ceremony, ceremony and drinks reception were amazing, we kept getting compliments from the guests all day and it really was a lovely background to the whole afternoon. Barry would be a fantastic choice for any occasion and I'd recommend him to anybody.

Absolutely fantastic!

We first met Barry at a wedding fair and from the moment we heard him playing we knew he was the man for us! Barry played at our drinks reception in Bellingham Castle and he was absolutely fantastic! So many of our guests commented on how brilliant he was, with many saying that they wished he could play all night. From our initial meeting to the many emails that were sent in preparation for our big day, Barry was a true professional - always prompt to respond and catered to our every request. We were absolutely delighted to have him help us to celebrate our day and we would very highly recommend him in the future.

We booked Barry having come across his version of You Are Mine on youtube and decided there and then that we wanted him to perform that at our Wedding Mass. From the first day we contacted him to the end of our drinks reception, Barry was phenomenal. Every song he performed was pitch perfect and beautiful. He brought our Wedding Mass to a new level (as my Mother-in-Law says he “enhanced the Liturgy”) and a tear to pretty much every eye in the house. His instrumental on the low whistle is something my new husband and I will treasure for the rest of our lives. Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing Barry is and to say that we would recommend him is a serious understatement. We could not be happier that we chose to have Barry perform for us.
