For your wedding ceremony and pre-dinner drinks reception, I perform a variety of different genres of music. Choose from the extensive song lists for ceremony and drinks reception, or let me know if your chosen pieces are not on the list and I would be happy to learn them, given sufficient notice. I am generally accompanied by guitar or piano (with the option of adding more instruments) and have great versatility in music choices. This means we can incorporate multiple styles into your wedding ceremony, including classical, religious, pop, soul, gospel, jazz, folk and swing. Prices for ceremony music start at €380, but you can get in touch here for quotes, packages and more information. I'm happy to help with any questions you might have!
"Natalie's voice added a whole extra layer of emotion and atmosphere to our wedding ceremony..." - Niamh & David, Church Ceremony, 2016
"Natalie covers such a wide range of songs and brings her own unique style to each one..." - Kirsten and Carl, Humanist Ceremony, Marlfield House, April 2017
For birthday parties, corporate events and restaurant music, When You're Smiling plays a unique variety of vintage and contemporary classics. From the swing era of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan and Dean Martin, to the big band 1920s jazz sounds of Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Cab Calloway, and the retro soul numbers of the 1960s featuring Nancy Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Dionne Warwick, no request is too big! We even throw in some folk, gospel, bossa nova and neo-soul from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Gregory Porter, Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, Astrud Gilberto and Carole King.
As the vocalist in this exciting music group, Natalie provides music packages for weddings, birthday parties and corporate events, and can work with you on the music for your special day. This includes ceremony music, afternoon drinks reception music, and after-dinner entertainment, both party band and DJ.
