When we contacted Bismark about our big day they were fantastic to deal with, they always were quick to respond and when we met Barry we knew we had made the right decision! Barry and Mark photographed our day and they fit in everywhere straight away. They got all the shots we wanted and were alway a pleasure to have around and made us all feel at ease straight away! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer for their big day! They were so professional but always had the craic also! They sent on some photos from the wedding and they are all amazing that I cannot wait to go through them all when they come! Thanks so much again Barry and Mark. was very easy to deal with he made both me and my husband feel at ease about the photos of our day!

Sheenagh and Donnacha were fantastic on our wedding day. We had two very large immediate families and they were both patient and flexible the whole time. They went above and beyond our expectations by even recording a couple very special moments during the reception which they did not have to do. We can’t wait to see the beautiful shots they took of us and our families. We recommend them ???? to every couple planning their special day. Thank you Sheenagh and Donnacha! (Don ;)

Sheenagh and Barry were absolutely amazing. Sheenagh was so helpful on the morning of the wedding. She made getting ready so much easier and we could not have done it without her. They put myself and my husband at ease throughout the day. I cannot recommend them enough. They were both so lovely to deal with.

This was our third bite at staging this wedding & we were lucky that we had Barry & Sheenagh with us right from the start. Knowledge of the Munster wedding scene is unsurpassed and the time & money they saved us by putting us in touch with the right suppliers & giving us honest opinions of the type of venue that would suit us as the rules changed meant they’d saved us more than we paid them. Before the wedding they were there to offer advice & ask what suggestions we wanted for pictures on the day & to reassure us about times & scheduling. On the day they were the first people at the venue, their good form was infectious & while they were professional they didn’t disturb the bride or groom party. After the ceremony they knew exactly what shots would work & had areas set up ready for group & couple pictures so it didn’t take up much of our day. They left nobody out yet did it with such efficiency that we were hardly missed at the drinks reception. After the ceremony we had a set of pictures sent by email before the reception ended & many many beautiful snaps sent to us within a fortnight from which we need to choose from for our album. They are people that love their work and it shows. We’ll never need a wedding photographer again but I recommend anyone looking for a wedding photographer not to look beyond Bismarck.

Where do I start ! Barry and Sheenagh did the Photography for our wedding in The Maryborough hotel recently and the only way I could describe them is perfection. Two of the best in the business by a country mile - from planning what shots we wanted in the lead up to the wedding , to the actual day itself & how our pictures turned out , they truely were spectacular. Two people who you can tell that they really take pride in what they do - cannot recommend highly enough . Thanks again guys from the bottom of our hearts, you brought the smiles and captured our memories on our big day, Luke & Melissa Foran

Sheenagh and Barry were recommended to us to capture the special memories of our big day. They certainly did deliver the best service. Barry met the lads and Sheenagh met the girls early that morning. Everything was very professional and smooth flowing and we had mighty Craic along the way. They helped us with more than just photography on the day. We were absolutely blown away with our photo images and how quickly we received them. We would both highly recommend Barry and Sheenagh for your big day. You won’t be disappointed.

Myself and Stephen could not reccomend Sheenagh and Barry more. They were fantastic and from the start put us all at ease. We got so much compliments from our guests at how relaxed they felt during the photographs and throughout the day. The photos turned out fantastic and were very natural which is exactly what we wanted. They captured every moment throughout the day when we didn't even know they were been taken. We will 100 percent be using them for future family events. Thanks again

Sheenagh and Donnacha were absolutely amazing on day, they both made the day run so smoothly and had the timings of everything down to a tee. It was such a relief to have two people making the atmosphere fun and easy going on the day! They were so professional but I felt like they were also part of my bridal party! We were gutted they had to leave the party at the end of the night!! Our pictures turned out amazing- we were laughing in every picture and it was down to you guys! Thanks so much ye honestly made our day!

Barry & Sheenagh are absolutely amazing at what they do. We couldn’t recommend them enough. They were much more than just photographers on our wedding day they were like apart of our bridal party for our day and our photos turned out absolutely beautiful. Having 2 photographers is definitely the way to go, they capture so much more & the different angles of all our photos are amazing. We will never be able to thank Barry & Sheenagh enough for capturing our day so brilliantly. They have fabulous professional photographers.

There is a genuine and sincere warmth for weddings you can’t help but feel from Bismark photography. They get the most out of the scenery and venues and do so in a relaxed and understanding way so you feel completely happy with that aspect of your day. I found all interactions with them easy and informative. We would highly recommend them for your wedding day.

We were so delighted to have Bismark capture the photographs for our wedding. We dealt with Barry from start to finish, he was so professional and made myself feel at ease in front of the camera (I'm not good with photos haha).The way he captured the photos were so natural, and we didn't feel like we were being staged. He brought so much fun and creativity to the pictures and captured our day perfectly! Thanks a mill Barry for the beautiful photos, we will cherish them for many years to come!

We had Sheenagh and the Donncadh on our wedding day and from the moment they arrived to the moment they left you couldnt ask for more from your photographers. Sheenagh puts you to ease she was with me (the bridge) and Donncadh was with the groom and he was A1 at relaxing them all to get them into photos. From the day we first engaged with them to the day we received our photos it was always a pleasure to deal with them and would have no hestiation in recommending them to anyone. Thanks again for everything Sheenagh and Donncadh

Could not recommend these enough. Sheena was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. As our wedding was a covid one things were a little diffrent and she went above and beyond to settle the nerves on the day. She had such a relax manner about her we couldnt help but feel the same. She made all our guests feel very secure in the tough times we were in and it's so nice to look back and have all the memories of the day. Very quick in sending the pictures also. Defo one to consider.

We'd a pandemic-impacted wedding, so it's always been change, change, change, but Barry and Sheenagh couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. After splitting our church wedding & hotel reception into separate dates nearly 2 years apart, we spent the interim going back to the pair of them for everything from maternity shoot to first family portrait. They make the dream team and we couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Barry and Sheenagh from Bismark Photography photographed our wedding in the Falls Hotel in 2016. I originally met them in a wedding fair in Cork and decided to go with them straight away due to their friendly easy going nature and beautiful photo's. They were brilliant on the day getting all the key photos that we wanted while adding a bit of fun as well. I recommended them to my friend who was equally happy with them and I returned to get my baby's first photo's taken there. Thank you so much for such a great day and giving us memories to last a lifetime.

Thank you Niamh for your lovely review. You were a great couple as the weather wasn't in your favour and yet you still braved all the elements to get the photos by the beach and also by the Falls. Hope you are keeping well.

We were lucky to have the Dream Team of Sheenagh and Barry take our pictures at our wedding a few years ago after they were recommended by a number of friends who had used them at their own weddings. They really are brilliant at what they do and made the whole process of taking the pictures a fun party of the day. The album was amazing and we couldn't remember half the shots that were taken as they make you feel so relaxed and that showed in the quality of the pictures. We have been back to their studio since to do family pictures which is a testament to the quality of their work. Continued success and keep up the great work.

From the minute we met Sheenagh and Barry, we knew that's who we wanted to take our wedding photo's. The quality of their work is exceptional, no request was too small or too big. They made us both feel at ease throughout the day, would hardly notice they were there at times, but captured some really special moments that family and friends weren't posing for. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment recommending them for any wedding or any occasion for that matter. You won't be disappointed.

We had Sheenagh do the photos for our wedding day a few years ago and she was absolutely fantastic. She is very easy going and put everyone at ease the morning of the wedding. She made all the photos fun. We had photos taken with all finbarr's family before the church and in my house as well and it was lovely to have them from both sides. She got loads of photos of all our friends and family throughout the day. The photo albums we got were beautiful. We have done 3 family photo shoots over the past few years after the wedding with Sheenagh and they were all great as well. I would highly recommend bismark for your wedding. Thanks Sheenagh.
