If you’re the kind of couple who likes to make an entrance, then there’s no better way to do it than to the distinctive tunes of uilleann pipes. Highly regarded for their sweet and mellow tone, the uilleann pipes are Ireland’s form of bagpipes. They have been used at ceremonies and events for centuries, and can be played at a wedding venue or reception, either to welcome guests or to pipe in the bride and groom.
Uilleann pipes are an excellent musical way to set the scene, but some of Ireland’s other traditional instruments can also be used on your day, including the flute, fiddle and the harp. And for full-on celebratory fun, why not try a traditional céilí dance after your wedding dinner? Think fast-paced dancing, lively traditional music, and lots and lots of laughs.
