A bride has returned from her honeymoon to discover a video of her singing at her wedding went viral in her absence.

Siobhán Friary treated her guests, and her new husband Stephen, to a rendition of 'The Prayer' during their wedding ceremony in Westmeath.

A few guests filmed the performance and shared it online, where it's been watched thousands of times.

"We're only home from our honeymoon in Portugal, I can't believe the reaction the video got," Siobhán told

"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, who describes singing as her passion, set up the Lír Music Academy recently.

"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," she added.

Siobhán's proud uncle Ray Wadey recorded the video.
