Bernard Carolan - Professional Wedding Photographer

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.

You are both celebrating your love for each other in front of your family and friends.

When couples come to see me after their big day is over I ask them the same question . . .

"How much can you remember of your wedding day ?"

Nearly all of them say things like...

" . . . The day moved very Fast . . ."
" . . . What parts did we miss . . ."
" . . . Did you capture all of our amazing moments . . ."

I’ve worked as a wedding photographer in Ireland for the past 20 years and I too asked these questions recently when I married my beautiful wife Suzi in Dublin Ireland.
There’s a lot of time, emotion and planning that goes into a wedding before and on the day. That’s why it’s important to hire the professional services of people that understand the functions of the day and the wedding industry.

As a professional wedding photographer, I am discreet and will capture all of your precious moments.

I move fast
I don’t miss anything
We capture the day in full​

Important images like . . .

Your Dress, Your Vows, Your Speeches, Your First Kiss

and lots more.

A wedding photographer has to remember that your photography is a family affair, what I mean is, it’s not just about capturing your friends having a good time, it goes further. It’s all about getting those images of your close family and close friends that are so important to you. Couples and their families spend countless months, or even years; preparing​ for a Wedding Day . . . and then it’s all over in the blink of an eye. Don’t lose those memories by hiring an amateur photographer.

Why lose those special moments ?

There’s one Momento in our home that’s very special to our family and that’s my parent’s wedding album from Dublin in 1965.
My mother was one of Ireland’s top models in the 1960s.
She made my father hire a professional photographer for their special day.
My father would occasionally say that their wedding photographer cost him a months wages, but was worth it!
Worth it because it was a day they both cherished.
