Documentary Wedding Photography & Wedding Day Film Making

Professional Wedding Photo & Video Specialist based in Larne – County Antrim

Hi There, I am John,

Wedding Photographer
Wedding Videographer
I operate from one of the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom. County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
It has been a pleasure to work at some amazing Wedding Venues across the province including Slieve Donard, Ballygally Castle, Leighinmohr, Hillmount House, “RunAwayIrishWeddings” The Rocks, Clandeboye Lodge, City Hall – Belfast & far to the west …… Manor House, Enniskillen.

I am looking forward to a busy 2022 season with a variety of Wedding assignments to complete for my Wedding Photography Clients & Wedding Video Clients. Current, enquiries are as far ahead as 2024/25.

Each Wedding Day may follow a similar format, yet each is different in its own way. I work for you & close family members too, capturing those special moments, the reactions, the tears, the fun & laughter.

Wedding Day Film Making goes hand in hand with my Photography, offering the same relaxed but intentional approach to capture a Wedding film that sits beautifully alongside your photographs. I capture the highlights of your day and the moments in between, recording the day’s movement and life.
Many Clients pick the “Highlights” Film, this is a condensed version created from the “feature-length” content & condensed into a 5-6 minute presentation of Audio/Visual Delight : )
