Pre-Dinner Reception Music Singers

A dramatic feature during your pre-drinks reception is having a light band playing instruments and singing some songs to keep your guests entertained while they wait to be called for the reception dinner.  Wedding pre-dinner music can kick-start a good atmosphere at your reception.

Photo Booths

Photobooths are all the rage now for a wedding in recent years. They come available in all different shapes and sizes. They will add a cool twist to your wedding day. Guests just pose in the photobooth your pictures are taken and there are also a lot of props that come available with these packages. A very fun and creative idea and it is sure to keep your guests entertained.


A harpist is the perfect idea for a chilled pre-reception or even for your wedding ceremony. It is very sophisticated and offers a very romantic sound. Your guests are sure to love this.


Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a magician. They offer plenty of bang for their buck and they are very easy to organise. They are a very versatile piece of entertainment. A magician can work their magic with card tricks during the pre-drinks reception. The magician doesn’t have to perform during your pre-reception they can also perform mid-meal or afterward.


A caricaturist will provide endless fun and laughs throughout the day. This is a great fun take to personalise your wedding day in the form of a caricature. The picture of you and your husband can also be hung on the wall for your own entertainment.


Live comedy is massive in Ireland and is a must for any wedding. Make your guests laugh and be entertained right after the meal or beforehand.


This will bring the wow factor to any wedding day. The mystical art of hypnosis will undoubtedly bring entertainment to your big day.

Ice-Cream Cart 

Come Rain or Shine, who doesn’t love a bit of Ice-Cream. It is a perfect idea for a summer wedding. Hiring an old-school cart rather than a modern-day van will enhance the vibe. Here are 10 reasons why you should hire an ice cream cart for your wedding day! 

Bouncy Castle

This will surely keep all the children entertained. For a while anyway!

Palm Reader

The supernatural touch to your wedding day. The palm reader can perform during the drink’s reception or mid-meal. This is a great way to fill any awkward gaps at the wedding.
