The Poetic Note

"The threads of connection, the wordless vibe, feels undeniably strong. In this marriage of music and poetry together, we create your own heart song"

Anne Gaffney


We offer personalised poems written by Anne accompanied by a bespoke piece of music composed as a different and unique wedding gift idea. The finished piece will be performed by The Poetic Note as part of the wedding ceremony or just after it, depending on what the couple or the person giving the gift wants. This distinctive gift will commemorate their special day to bring a unique and personalised flavour to their wedding ceremony. These pieces are written and composed in close communication with the commissioner and the focus is on the couple. The poem can be about love and commitment and can include things like how they met, character traits, hopes and dreams, their pledge to each other, their philosophy on love and life, fun things and special moments etc.

We are currently working on a wedding piece for a couple in Galway for June 2018... We are the wedding gift with a difference!



"Paul and I were very touched by the gift we received of The Poetic Note's performance.... the piece was so "us" and added a unique and magical aspect to our wedding day.... Thank you both so much for those special words and notes..."  Diane & Paul Quam.

"After so many years together there wasn't much we needed by way of wedding presents. So this gift of a personalised poem to music by The Poetic Note just blew us away! All 130 guests were so mesmerised that you could have heard a pin drop. This was a truly wonderful gift and we will treasure it forever. Thanks you two" Emer & Paul Druce

"We were delighted and surprised to receive such a unique gift. the Poetic Note added a personal and moving touch to our wedding ceremony..... You could have heard a pin drop and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. It was very special" Diarmuid & Aine O'Gorman

"As it was second time around for both of us and we were having a civil ceremony, we struggled to find something unique that summed up who we are and what we'd been through to get to this point in our lives. The Poetic Note helped us find words of joy and meaning to add a personal touch to our service and we were blown away by what they did. I would thoroughly recommend Anne and Martin for a uniquely wonderful way to personalise your wedding day" Dermot & Sharon Gaffney

"We choose to have a humanistic ceremony, and on our special day The Poetic Note piece brought a real sense of who we are as a couple. It was meaningful, emotive and light, all at once. It captured the quirks and the depth and is something unique we have to remember our day by. we just loved it" Adrian & Claire Kearney
