your special day…

Perhaps the most important element of any brides day will be the music… it sets the atmosphere for both ceremony and drinks reception and will remain a talking point well after the day has gone.

The concert harp is surely the most romantic of instruments and is the most obvious choice which many brides are now making, whether for civil or religious ceremony or for the champagne reception afterwards at the hotel or as your guests enjoy dinner.

Harpist Les Magee offers a comprehensive service encompassing all styles of music from classical to jazz and folk, and recent pops such as Adele, Snow Patrol, Cold Play and even Metallica!

As a very versatile musician Les can also offer a service of wedding PIANIST, wedding ORGANIST and wedding VOCALIST if required.

When you match with the actual Virginia creeper and landrover! 🤣
We love when the creeper turns each autumn but you gotta be quick as it’s such a short show 🍁🍁
This was taken after a recent performance and I could not resist the matchy matchy photo. And after all, red is the colour of passion.
Still taking bookings for Nov/ Dec 2020 and of course diary is open for 2021, 2022 and even 2023 🎉❤️

Throw back to @clandeboyelodgehotel and that amazing ceremony room! The bride chose Chopin’s Nocturne op9 no 2 which I usually perform in piano but here it is on the harp. What do you think of this? Let me know in the comment box 🥰🙌
Can you imagine the atmosphere with this as the bride entered? We loved it! #weddingmusicnireland

I guess we’ve stopped counting days until we can perform again. It’s been a tough time and a time in which to remain focussed otherwise hope could be gone.
I’m scrolling my wedding photos this am. I have played in some of the best venues in Ireland and here I am pictured in one of them. Here’s the marquee at @drenaghweddings, where there’s unending romance from the start of your day to the very next morning at the huge dining table for breakfast.
Hoping I can perform again soon.

The wood is bare: a river-mist is steeping
—The trees that winter's chill of life bereaves:
Only their stiffened boughs break silence, weeping
——Over their fallen leaves ( Bridges)

Yesterday’s walk in Ballymoney where we met lots of people we know! That’s the thing about NI. We all know each other. Want to see who was there? Click on my story 💥🎉
I took a wee minute to sit on this log. Cannot believe spring and summer are gone but there’s always something about autumn and the falling leaves too 🍁

Thank you to @artscouncilni for recognition of the arts in our province and in particular, recognition of what I do!
Thank you for this award. It means a lot at this uncertain time 🙏🏻❤️

Continuing on the Christmas wedding theme, there’s no better time for wedding decor and perhaps one of the most splendid sights is the Christmas decor at #drenagh. There’s a trail of magic dust sprinkled from room to room by the creatives at @theweddingroomni. Regardless of how many times you see it....

He was consious of a thousand odours floating in the air, each one connected with a thousand thoughts, and hopes, and joys, and cares, long, long, forgotten. (Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol)

Throw back to celebrations for @dervlathomsonx graduation! 🎉🎉Not forgetting @_mollyyt entrance to St Mary’s✨🎉
When the fam gets together it’s defo worth taking a selfie and then there’s someone taking a photo of me taking a selfie 🤣😂
Also was my last chance to wear the floral catsuit purchased in Spain. Wish you could see the full look with matching shoes! 👠🥿👡

So what could I play whilst sitting in this hall with a beautiful fire on a lovely autumn day? Here’s Ed Sheeran’s perfect. As wedding suppliers and venues prepare yet another lockdown and income loss let’s remember how resilient we are here in NI. We’ve weathered all sorts of storms before and it’s time to call on our extra reserve once more. We look forward to performing again at our postponed events.
This is @magheramorne_estate. A house that has stood many a storm. A house that welcomes not only brides, but guests for afternoon tea and special menu tasting. We look forward to joining you for one, or each of those days. ❤️🎉

💖No filter on this! This scene has been the epicentre of so many moments of happiness over the last few years. Brides/ grooms enter by the stairs, wedding cakes cut, hip hip hoorays, even some people will say “I do” at the bottom of those stairs. But here sits the vintage @steinwayandsons piano. He’s clocked up a good few miles. And if he could speak.....we would surely love to hear his stories.
Contact @drenaghweddings for details on the many beautiful options.

I’m always happy to play the piano at Drenagh house. There’s always that old magic going on 🎶🎶🎉

The bride and her maids. Let’s hope this weeks announcement from @niassembly is not going to rock the wedding boat further.🙏🏻
We loved this little wedding ceremony and no one knows the stress that this girl had in the run up because of date and venue changes due to new social distancing measures. What a great day of love and marriage ❤️💓💒

Call the shop to donate fashion or for details of this lovely little classic jacket! 💓

Church Wedding? Here’s a little smidgeon of what you can have from me in church. 💒
Traditional organ with hymns or maybe piano for more contemporary worship? Harp sets the brides arrival and you can also have a solo during the ceremony too.
The grand exit is always good on the organ with some of the traditional classic wedding marches! 💞
Have a watch through. Still taking bookings for the year end and of course 2021/2022

Many of you have seen this professional video of mine before but today it has a message.
The frustration lies in the fact that weddings have made a return but live music restrictions will keep us from working. We’ve been silent for around six months and now the frustration lies in the fact that we are restricted again. With little income and no furlough for self employed how do we survive?
This is a plea for understanding of performance and how it could possibly go ahead with safety measures, rather than cut out completely

❤️Give me a piano and some sequins and the evening is made ✨
I’ve got incredible mileage out of this wee frock with matching shoes and a belt thrown together by my self!
Here is the beautiful ballroom at @magheramorne_estate, complete with its #samick grand. What an amazing room with a view! 🍁
Great background music should never intrude the conversation. Hopefully soon, I’ll get to play once again.

🤓Today I’m actually in this chair. And relaxing. A Sunday in autumn and we usually go walking but it’s lashing at the mo. So here’s where I’ll be for the foreseeable Sunday afternoon!
Red is the colour of passion but it’s also the colour of coziness and there’s something welcoming about this room as the evenings draw in.
How are you spending your afternoon?

🎶At last a recording that doesn’t have Mummy in the corner trying to make us laugh in the middle. Naughty. ☺️😁
So at lockdown my sis bought herself a whole plethora of Irish whistles!
Here’s the result! A wee Irish folk tune.
Hope you all enjoy this!
