Best Wedding Photographs of 2023

Please allow a few moments for the Best Wedding Photographs of 2023 to load

After the craziness of 2022, when we were still catching up with all the weddings the were postponed and rearranged due to Covid, 2023 had an air of normality about it. 

Guest numbers were back to normal, dance floors were full and greeting lines with guests after the ceremony were back in fashion. The only thing still missing is the sign of peace handshake during the church wedding ceremonies. Maybe that will return in 2024.

I photographed most of my weddings in Cork again, with the occasional trip to Kerry. Fernhill House Hotel in Clonakilty was the venue I photographed in most, followed by The Maryborough and Dunmore House Hotel. 

Civil ceremonies are catching up on Church ceremonies and will probably overtake them in the next few years and outdoor wedding ceremonies are increasingly popular.

I went to The Blasket Centre, The Aghadoe Heights in Killarney and  The Walter Raleigh in Youghal for the first time this year and I’m looking forward to revisiting them when I can.

I received 12 Wedisson International Photography Awards, some of which are featured below.

I’ve added a 3 hour wedding package for smaller weddings and elopements to my list and it is becoming popular with couples who don’t want a full day’s coverage.

I’ve also bought my first mirrorless camera which I will be using when I get started again in February. Come back this time next year to see if it has made much of a difference to my style of photography.

I had a very difficult job picking this end of year selection. I wouldn’t call these my actual favourites as there are loads of photographs that I am really proud of, but they would mean more to me and the people in the photographs that to someone unconnected with the families. You can see those photographs in the family gallery link at the bottom of this post.

So, I have tried to choose wedding images that work without any connection to the people in the photographs. Some were structured and directed, particularly the backlit night shots, but many were captured on the fly as things were happening around me. The god of photography smiled on me as I pressed the shutter and everything fell into place!

I’d like to thank all the brides and grooms that trusted me to photograph their most important day and I’m looking forward to working with lots of great couples at fantastic venues in 2024.
