" Claire sang at our church wedding in August and we just couldn't have asked for more beautiful ceremony music. She was very open to our song preferences and was able to suggest music where we weren't entirely sure what to have. I remember enjoying listening to her sing during the ceremony in spite of my nervousness which is a brilliant memory. All our interaction with Claire were completely hassle-free and she organised everything perfectly. Even better if you book Claire for the ceremony/reception and Gossip Band for the evening entertainment!"

" Claire was fantastic to deal with. We booked Claire for our church ceremony on the strength of her clips on her website. She sounds even better in real life. She was great to deal with, we emailed, spoke on the phone, she suggested songs when we were unsure, she even sung a few songs over the phone. Planning a wedding is a lot of work, so to all the future brides and grooms reading this to research music, Book Claire Malone. She has the voice of an angel, she will make the ceremony meaningful, give you that WOW feeling, your guests will be very impressed and you are making the right decision - book her. "

"After a hectic few months I’m getting around to leaving reviews and this one is top of my list! Claire Malone sang at my wedding in City Hall and she was amazing, a truly exquisite voice. I met Claire earlier in the year to discuss my song choices. I asked if she could learn a song in German. Claire said she didn’t speak German but that wouldn’t stop her as she sung a song before in Swahili. She learnt the German song especially for our wedding and sang the song so beautifully - Lili Marlene, a very personal and romantic song to me and my husband, we were both so moved as we walked up the aisle to our favorite love song sung so beautifully by Claire. Her soulful voice was perfect for the song. She gave some great advice on our other song choices and convinced me to change one of the songs which was a little too sad and gave me good recommendations for more upbeat choices."

"Claire has an amazing voice. She really made our ceremony special. I didn't make it easy for her as I was very undecided about songs, never half a rehearsal and she was so professional and understanding. An amazing woman to deal with and put me at ease throughout our contact. Everyone at my wedding had nothing but compliments for Claire. I really cannot fault anything or recomended her enough. Her song selection was beautiful and she had no problem learning a new song if i wanted. I will definitely book Claire again if there was an occasion where we needed a church singer. Only thing i was sorry about was that i hadn't booked her for drinks reception aswell. Fantastic performer xx"

"Having the right singer for our wedding day was so key for us. We looked at many different singers, but we both knew that Claire was our #1 choice. When we first touched base with Claire (via Skype) we were both put at ease that we were dealing with an experienced professional who offered great choice recommendations for specific stages of the ceremony and for the Reception drinks. All interactions with Claire, whether by e-mail or phone were really pleasant as we were always reminded that it was our day, so there was never any periods of unnecessary stress or panic caused. I would 100% recommend any couple seeking a wedding singer to get in touch with Claire - you won't regret it"

"Hi Claire, We would like to say a massive thank you for performing at our ceremony and drinks reception. We are so happy we choose you. We had to go all the way to Dublin to find you but all the searching was worth it. You have an amazing voice and this was confirmed to us by all the comments from our guests wondering who you were and what a fantastic voice you had. We received our wedding video this week and listening to your voice again is amazing. You were a pleasure to deal with from our first call. We picked songs that were special to us and Claire sang each of those songs to an exceptionally high standard. We would highly recommend Claire Thank You for making our day so special Yvonne & Gerry"
