My Best Cork Wedding Photographs for 2021

2021 has been another strange year for everyone, but really busy year for wedding photographers.

After all the weddings that had to be rescheduled from 2020, sometimes 3 or 4 times, were added to the weddings that were already planned for 2021, it feels like we have packed 18 months work into our 10 month season.

Our couples have had all kinds of difficulties and restrictions to deal with, on guest numbers, bands, finishing times, seating arrangements and the different types of entertainments allowed at the wedding venues. 

But despite all those difficulties, every wedding I photographed this year was ultimately a celebration of love, of family and friends and of hope for the future, whether there were 8 people or 180 people there on the day.

Even though most wedding days run to a pattern… bridal prep, ceremony, location photographs, drinks reception, speeches, dinner and dancing, each one is totally unique, due to the mix of individuals and families and locations and the stories they create.

I have spent 12 years working as a wedding photographer and I have photographed over 500 weddings, but I still get a massive buzz from planning the day with my couples in the build up to their wedding and then helping keep everything running smoothly on the day itself. 

In these unprecedented times, I have found that my experience of managing wedding days has really helped when we have had to make last minute changes to the running order and the plan for the day.

On a personal level, in going through all the photographs I shot last year, I have noticed a change in my photography style too. 

I am still very keen on making time in the day to capture photographs of all the important people in the couples lives, parents, grandparents, bridesmaids and groomsmen, close friends and beloved pets! 

But maybe because weddings have become smaller and more intimate, I am also trying harder to capture the quiet / funny / unusual moments in between, and I will be working on this more in the coming 2022 wedding season.

Once again, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the couples who trusted me with their wedding photographs in 2021 and that I’m really looking forward to the fun and the photographs that I will get to create with my couples in 2022.
