We have just completed a Wedding Showcase at The Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe. It was a new venture for us in terms of having a ‘stand’ and putting ourselves ‘out there’ for business so to speak. We met a lot of lovely people in our time there, from the vendors to staff to the couples themselves and we’re thrilled with the amount of interest in our service, which is a poem written and music composed uniquely for the couple themselves.
We were also invited perform a piece, a poem called Promise ,composed for Diarmuid and Aine O’Gorman back in 2014 which was very well received. And we got to tap into the joyful energy of approaching nuptials for so many! we decided to run a free draw for a bespoke piece for one lucky couple, but decided to go for four lucky couples, such was the interest.
That draw happened today and we have four wedding couples to work with from both this year and next year. Its all very exciting. We love doing personalised wedding pieces to celebrate such a special day in a couples life and we appreciate the privilege of being part of that for them…. So overall, it was a great experience and one we hope to repeat in The Shearwater and any one else who’ll have us!
We are currently finishing and polishing a piece for a wedding on June 16th in Galway and we are really looking forward to that big day for a certain two lovers…..we love this work! Who knew!!
