Irish bride performs beautiful song at her wedding
An Irish bride performed beautiful rendition of the song ‘The Prayer’ at her wedding – and returned from her honeymoon to find that the video had gone viral.
Siobhán Friary performed the song during the wedding ceremony in Westmeath.
She showed that she has the voice of an angel and it was a real treat for all of the guests – and of course her new husband Stephen.
Siobhán didn’t think a lot more about the performance until she returned from her honeymoon and discovered that one of the guests had filmed her singing the song.
She told the Irish Independent: “We’re only home from our honeymoon in Portugal, I can’t believe the reaction the video got. My husband asked me if I would sing at our wedding but I was nervous and didn’t know if I would be able to do it with all the emotions on the big day.

“But it’s great, I’m delighted with the incredible feedback and support from friends and family and the comments of people who have seen the video.”
Siobhán is a talented singer and is a founder of the Lir Music Academy in Mullingar, where she is a director and teacher.
However, she wasn’t prepared for the reaction that she has received after the video went viral.
She continued: “I never expected the video to do so well. I’ve never uploaded a video of myself singing before so never thought anything of it. Then we got back from our honeymoon and the phone hasn’t stopped.
“If anything comes out of it, it would be fantastic. I’ve only just set up my music academy and it’s a very exciting time in my life.”
