Why I am passionate about Wedding Photography
What’s not to love about weddings it’s such a wonderful combination of two people madly in love’ and people who love them and want to share in their special day, beautiful fashion, a gathering of old and new friends and fabulous food all in a wonderful location and if I am lucky I get to photograph it.

From the moment the couple arrive for a consultation and discuss their hopes and dreams for their wedding day I am captured in the magic of their special day I love to hear all about the flowers. Dress, cake what they hope to get from their wedding photography and as the wedding day draws closer I love to see the excitement in their faces.

When the wedding day arrives I head off with my camera bag packed and my survival kit which is usually bottle of water, banana and some headache tablets.
Onces I have arrived at the place of preparation whether it be the bride’s family home or a hotel room I love to feel the excitement hear the nervous chatter and smell the beautiful perfume and flower scent in the air.
Once I have checked that we are all on schedule and my bride is happy I go about photographing every special detail of this most wonderful day the dress, the flowers shoes even the jewellery no detail goes unphotographed. I love seeing the dress for the first time. During the consultations I will have heard all about this dress and finally I get to see it and take in every detail with my camera
I then get into photographing everything that is happening the bride and her bridal party having there makeup and hair done mum rinsing out the cups at the kitchen sink everything that documents what was happening on the day.
Then comes reveal time when the bride is all dressed and ready to show everyone who is waiting to see how beautiful she looks at this stage my camera is working overtime capturing everyone reactions all the ohh and ahhs the tears from family members such a beautiful time that my camera and I capture.
Then it’s off to the ceremony whether it be a civil or church each couple add their own individual style to their ceremony with beautiful music poems and prayers even though we can’t capture the words we capture the expression of everyone as they are carried away on the emotions of the ceremony.
Once the I DO’S have been said it’s great to see everyone greeting the happy couple.
Then depending on the weather, location and wedding plans we head off to make those magic photos of the happy couple with their bridal party which I do love I understand that not every couple are not comfortable in front of the camera so we just do some simple relaxed photographs.
Then its back to the reception to capture the rest of the day until its time for us to pack up our cameras

We look forward to hearing from you!

Bernadette is fantastic! My husband and I eloped from Australia, so before getting to Ireland hadn’t met Bernadette and only communicated by email. Bernadette was always fast to respond and extremely helpful, offering advice and going above and beyond to help us pick some fantastic locations. Bernadette met us at our hotel the day before our wedding and we clicked straight away. She made us feel completely comfortable with her friendly personality and professionalism. We didn’t have any guests at our wedding, just my husband and I. Bernadette made our unique wedding day extra special. We are so impressed with the service and the quality of the photos we received we would recommend Bernadette to anyone in a heart beat!

From the beginning it was easy to build up a good working relationship with Bernadette as she listened carefully to our requirements and tailored the photographic experience to meet our expectations. We were really impressed by her willingness to listen, her down to earth nature, her attention to detail during the planning stage and her skilfulness at capturing our special moments. She was professional yet friendly and fun style of interacting with our wedding guests and a talent for designing beautiful wedding albums. We have no hesitation in recommending Bernadette to anybody seeking a photographer to capture their special occasions. You will be in safe hands

Choosing a photographer to capture all the special moments of your wedding day is always going to be a difficult decision to make, but our decision to book James and Bernadette was one of the best decisions we made. We couldn't have been happier to have you there to capture all those moments for us, you put us all at ease from the moment you arrived with us Thursday morning. You even put up very well with the antics with my extremely "unpredictable" bridesmaids!!!! LOL, but I wouldn't change them even if I could, You kept us relaxed all day long Everyone has commented how great you were and that the photos were fantastic, Thank you both again so so much,

We planned a very small and simple wedding and originally thought we didn’t need a wedding photographer. However, we are so glad we booked James and Bernadette as they were a pleasure to work with and captured our day perfectly. We hoped for informal, relaxed but professional photos and that’s exactly what they delivered. We would highly recommend Hayes Photographyl for any wedding. Thank you so much for the wonderful photos,
Response from Bernadette Hayes Photography
It was a great honor for us to be able to capture those precious moments of your special day
