A huge thank you to everyone who booked me for their wedding in 2017.
It was an amazing year and it was such a pleasure to play at so many beautiful weddings!
In December is was lovely to be back playing at Castlie Leslie, Co. Monaghan, Virginia Park Lodge in Cavan, The Slieve Russell Hotel (Cavan) and The Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh.
Hostel World.com's staff Christmas Party was held at Kilruddery House in County Wicklow. What a fun night it was playing at their drinks reception and during their evening meal. The festive atmosphere was amazing in their 19th century barn conversion.
To play again at Queen's University, Belfast in December at an event was such a pleasure.
It was lovely to be invited to play at The Golf Captain's Dinner (Michael Connolly) at Headfort Golf Club in Kells, County Meath. See Michael's feedback from the evening here.
On Christmas Day I had the pleasure of playing in The River Room Restaurant at Galgorm Resort and Spa. Thank you to Starling ents for this booking.
During November it was great fun playing at Athlone shopping centre and The Whitewater Shopping centre. Thank you to Profile Events for these bookings. http://www.profileevents.ie/

Instagram is pretty new to me.
I will be updating my page regularly in 2018.
Give it a wee follow to keep up with wedding photos, video clips & stories from events & weddings that I'll be playing at in 2018. ?
Why the name 'Pixielectrica' ?
I played in many bands throughout my career and I was called 'The Pixie' in one band.
The second half, 'electrica', is simply due to playing the electric violin ☺️.
Here is a wedding video produced by Michael Foster.tv of Gavin and Gillian Jackson's special day. I played at their wedding ceremony and during/after their meal at The Dunadry hotel. It was a pleasure to be a part of their special day.
My good friend Gavin Jackson got married to Gilly Gourley at the Dunadry Hotel recently. Having been minded in Gav's...
It was great to be a part of Donna and James's wedding recently. I played 'Canon in D' for Donna's bridal entrance at the church ceremony. Alongside Michelle, a great local pianist, I played hymns and Purcell's 'Trumpet in D' for their wedding exit. At The Four Seasons, Carlingford, I then played background music during their meal. In between the courses and after the dinner I played well known classics, pop and some Irish/folk songs.
There were some great singers amongst the guests, when I joined them at the tables to play. The bride looked unbelievable in her dress, which had beautiful diamantés around the waist & neck and a stunning full skirt. Thank you to Donna and James for inviting me to play and congratulations on your recent marriage! Photos to follow!
In June, I thoroughly enjoyed playing over Noeleen & Philip's wedding meal atHotel Kilmore, Co Cavan. The bride looked so beautiful and pretty. She had the most stunning dress and flowing wedding veil. Congratulations to Noeleen and Philip and a big thank you for having me to play on your special day. The wedding party and guests were great fun to play for.

The next 7 months are filled with wedding meal bookings, ceremonies and drinks receptions all over the north and south of Ireland. I'm looking forward to meeting and playing for the couples and at different events.
2015 will soon be filled. 2016 is filling up fast and bookings have already been taken for weddings in 2017.
This is from a practice session. I also play the upbeat pop version. This one is more subtle, with just a piano backing which is perfect for civil ceremonies. I've played it a lot during the signing of the register and it enhances the romantic atmosphere. ?
