Where the couples do the talking

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making life so easy on our wedding day! A pleasure to deal with throughout and everything was simple and no hassle for you. They offered plenty of advice and help before and on the day and at times when weddings can get hectic and stressful either on the day or before hand they were both calming influences and able to have a laugh yet totally professional. Their knowledge of the venue was a big advantage and made the most of the conditions on the day to get the photos we wanted. It never felt boring or monotonous by any means and we were both really happy with the Fennells. Really appreciate the effort they made to get through the list despite being under time pressure with time lost due to my parents arriving the half hour late to church! We thought we were going to hate every minute of the photos at the wedding and we didn’t at all, in fact, quite the opposite we loved every moment of it 🙂 Mark and Fiona re just amazing wedding photographers.

Elaine & Peter· 2017 February 24th Rathsallagh House

Mark and Fiona have an unbelievable talent for capturing those special moments. Their unobtrusive style makes you feel very relaxed and you know you’re in safe hands. We did an engagement shoot with Mark and Fiona a couple of months before the big day and we could not recommend it highly enough. The whole experience was relaxed and natural from beginning to end. Mark and Fiona got to know us as a couple and all the small details of our wedding. The results are just phenomenal, photos we will treasure forever.

Laura & Liam· 2016 December 16th The Lyrath Estate

We struggled to find a photographer that we clicked with, until we met Mark and Fiona. Their bubbly and down to earth personalities along with their enthusiasm for their work really struck us. At that point we knew we wanted them to be a part of our wedding day.
On the day itself, they slotted in like one of the family and made everyone feel at ease, while adding some fun to the photo experience. They captured every detail of the day and so many people commented on how nice they were to have around.
Our photos are truly stunning, Mark and Fiona captured the emotion of the day with so many beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever. We have a hard job picking the ones we want for our album!!
By far the best money we spent. I would highly recommend The Fennells to any brides and grooms to be.

Louise & Terence· 2016 December 30th Radisson Blu St. Helen’s Hotel, Dublin

The Fennell’s were a first class experience. They are true professionals, it didn’t take us long to understand why this amazing couple are in such high demand and this was even before our wedding day. How they managed us from first meeting, emails, right up to the day itself was just perfection. On the day their experience and knowledge blew us out of the water. They were part of the family. They captured every moment while never causing disrupt to the natural flow of the day. They worked the room incredibly well, we never noticed them floating about, yet on receiving our wedding photos they captured photos of every single guest. Our photos truly reflected our day and we will cherish them forever. People need to book them, I promise you, you will not regret it!

Julie & Scott· 2016 August 23rd Clonabreany

The Fennells are simply a must!!! The best money we spent without doubt! We knew from the start that they were excellent photographers so we knew our photos were in safe hands but never realised how brilliant they would be on the day! The Fennells as well as capturing every moment of our day just slotted in with everyone, they kept everyone moving & made sure every i was dotted and t crossed! They did everything to make sure that the day ran as smoothly as possible, Fiona was even on hand with hair clips on the day which came in handy after a windy beach shot! Mark & Fiona have a serious eye for detail capturing emotional natural shots with our family and friends that we will cherish forever! They were so much more than photographers! I don’t normally make recommendations but I can’t recommend these two highly enough!!!!!

Sandra & Enda· 2016 July 21st Clonabreany House

Mark and Fiona were extremely professional on our wedding day. They made us feel so at ease from start to finish. Their work is incredible and I would highly recommend any couples getting married to choose the Fennells

Ronan & Elaine· 2016 July 22nd Brooklodge Hotel

When we first met Mark we loved his enthusiasm and his work that he showed us, he listened to what we wanted and especially to what we didn’t like with regards to wedding photos. On the day, himself and Fiona were extremely professional and made us feel relaxed in front of the camera. They were flexible and able to deal with pushy family members and guided us through the whole day. Our photos are incredible, we are so happy how they turned out.

Alice and Enda· 2016 July 8th The Glenview Hotel

We just to say a massive thank you for doing our wedding in June. The pictures have turned out fantastic and everyone loves them. From the moment you both turned up you made us feel at easy and you where a delight to work with. We can not recommend you enough to anyone getting married. 🙂

Elaine & Sean· 2016 June 11th Tulfarris Hotel

My husband and I planned our wedding from Australia, so we were reliant on the powers of the web to do all our organising. From the minute we met Mark and Fiona on Skype we knew we wanted them to share our big day. Not only are they both fantastic, talented photographers,they are both very relaxed and friendly. They were always in touch via email and were happy to accommodate our needs. Our wedding guests all commented on how lovely Mark & Fiona were. Our wedding photos are just stunning! We are so happy with them They have managed to capture all the special moments and so much more! I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married in Ireland.

Liz & Podge· 2016 May Luttrelstown Castle

Mark and Fiona provide an excellent service. From our first meeting with Mark we knew we had made the right choice in picking our photographer. Our pictures truly are stunning, we absolutely love them and everyone we have shown them to has commented on how amazing they all are. Mark and Fiona were so professional on the day, never getting in the way but allowing us to have a lovely relaxed wedding day and still getting brilliant shots. They were so paitent with my son Jack who isn’t a great lover of the camera but they even managed to get a smile out of him. I would definitely recommend them to anybody getting married

Mr and Mrs O Keefe· 2016 9th April The Cliff At lyons

We cannot say enough about Mark & Fiona Fennell. I think the greatest compliments we can pay them is that not only did we get beautiful natural photos that we felt totally captured the vibe on the day, so many people said they hardly noticed we had photographers…and there were 2 of them! When we did feel their presence, we had great craic with them & for people that are not pros at photos, they put us & our bridal party completely at ease. They just got us & what more could you ask for!

Enda & Grainne· 2016 18th March

Mark and Fiona Fennell photographed our wedding and we were so happy with their service. They were professional throughout and are truly top wedding photographers, punctual on the day and kept us within our time schedule. They blended into my house like one of the family. They provided the photography style we were looking for. Most importantly on the day, they kept us calm and relaxed and looking our best and they were great fun. We can’t wait for our finished album to arrive. I would recommend them to anyone.

Anna & John Shine· 2015 4th December

Mark and Fiona were so lovely to deal with, they created such a relaxed , calm and fun environment. There professionalism and experience helped the day run so smoothly, they gave us great tips and engaged really well with the bridal party . Our photos are amazing and I cannot thank Mark and Fiona enough. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Mark and Fiona to all brides to be .

Fiona & Iggy· 2015 12th September Shelbourne Hotel

We would highly recommend Mark and Fiona Fennell Photography. They are simply the top wedding photographers in Ireland as we met with plenty and they in our opinion are the best. Mark and Fiona were lovely to work with from start to finish. They made us all feel at ease on the day and were great fun. They captured our day perfectly and we are delighted with our photos.

Stephanie & Conor· 2015 23rd October Ballymagarvey Village

Where do we begin when speaking about Mark and Fiona? We searched for photographers quite extensively, as any couple does before a wedding but when we met them and saw their portfolio we knew that they were perfect for us. They provided us with the most beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. Their style and professionalism shines through each shot with a mixture of candid, documentary photos and more formal portraiture. We can’t stress the added dimension that two photographers bring, and this pair are just totally in sync gathering the most precious moments that only last a second but are captured forever. Glances, looks, smiles, laughter, fun and happiness, all captured in the most amazing way. Every little detail that mattered so much to us, they documented and captured. Much more than this, we outlined every portrait and family portrait we wanted to have and they made sure that all our requests were granted. They both had this amazing ability to be “camera ninja’s” capturing the most beautiful moments with friends and family without being noticed, allowing everyone to relax and not be camera shy. For the more formal shots they put everyone at ease with their warm approach letting the day to flow so naturally, which we felt was so important to us, allowing everyone to enjoy the occasion. One special recommendation we suggest is getting Mark & Fiona to do the fun-style photo shoot with guests in the evening, instead of a “photo-booth”. This is far better and proved to be so much fun. It’s a directed photo-shoot with hilarious outcomes of family and friends resulting in high-resolution professional photos as opposed to small passport snaps. We were so delighted we asked Mark & Fiona to add this to our day. Finally we just want to say to any couple searching for a photographer, one look through Mark & Fiona’s online gallery, or their long list of photographic achievements you can gauge instantly their amazing talent, but something that is equally important is how your photographer or in this case, photographers interact with you. It is this aspect that we really want to point out to any couple making their mind up, Mark & Fiona will enhance your entire day, as well as provide you with memories that will be cherished forever. We would like others to experience what did, don’t look any further. Gary & Cristin Wexford 2014

CristĂ­n & Gary· 2014 December Wexford

All I can say amazing… Fiona & mark were brilliant… Very easy to work with & the pictures I’ve seen so far I can’t express how happy we are with them… I would have no issue with recommended them again & again… Couldn’t have asked for better…:)

Ali O Leary· 2015 May 21st Nuremore Hotel

We are delighted that we were lucky enough to have Mark and Fiona as our wedding photographers. They were recommended to us by our venue and for good reason. They did a magnificent job and were a pleasure to deal with both before, during and after our wedding. They put us at ease and were really lovely to work with. They took a variety of natural and posed shots which we are really pleased with. They also captured our venue beautifully. I am thrilled with the pictures and would wholeheartedly recommend them for any event. I would like to thank them for the precious memories that they captured in the most professional and beautiful way.

Alana & Niall· 2015 21st August Carton House Hotel

I am so happy we chose Mark and Fiona for our big day.. we opted for the digital package of where we got over 600 photos. The photos were amazing… Both Mark and Fiona were brilliant on the day, so relaxed and there when you wanted them, along with their organisation they knew exactly where to be and when. I couldn’t recommend these both enough…

The Coughlans· 2015 31st July

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. There was a nice mix of both formal and casual photographs which is what we were hoping for. Mark and Fiona took a lot of our photographs near our drinks reception so we didn’t feel like we were away from our guests for long. The hotel that we got married in have also asked can they use some of the photographs for their website and for promotion. I would highly recommend them.

Karen & Paul· 2015 July 9th

I don’t really know what to say other then WOW… Mark & Fiona were just amazing… They made our day extra special with the amazing pictures they took… They made use feel so at ease, so fun & definitely no pressure… I love these guys & can’t thank them enough xxx

Mr & Mrs O’Reilly· 2015 July

Friendly, funny & professional are just 3 words that describe Mark & Fiona. From our first meeting to getting our album, no request was too much and all our queries were answered with great knowledge. Mark & Fiona never intruded on our big day, yet they captured every moment perfectly & beautifully. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Fennells for anyone’s big day. Thanks again Mark & Fiona!

Carol & Colm· 2015 April

Mark and Fiona were brilliant to work with. They put us both at ease when it came to planning and taking the photos. No request for photos was too big and or small. The photos and DVD turned out amazing.

Linda & Ian· 2015 June

We found Mark and Fiona at a wedding fair and we were both immediately drawn to their photography. Both Mark and Fiona were excellent to work with and extremely personable. They put everyone at ease and made getting the photos done one of the highlights of the day. Having 2 photographers give you a unique perspective on the day, it’s not something that I would have considered before. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark and Fiona to anyone looking for a professional, fun and efficient photography service to capture their big day. Thanks Guys!

Mr & Mrs Craig· 2015 June

We found Mark and Fiona at a wedding fair and fell in Love with their Photography straight away. We contacted them a number of weeks later and we found them very responsive and very easy to deal with. We arranged to meet with Mark before booking so he could show us some of the work he has done and to discuss the style of photography that we wanted. After meeting with Mark we knew he was the photographer for us. As part of our package we had an engagement shoot included, We can not recommend this option enough as it gave us a chance to get use to posing and working with the camera! It also gave us a chance to get use to Mark and Fiona. In the run up to the wedding any time I contacted Mark or Fiona they were always available and if not available straight away they contacted us very shortly after. We also arranged to meet with Mark once more to discuss our wedding album and also any must shoots and people we wanted photographs with on the day. On the day Mark and Fiona both had this list and it saved sooo much time and also meant that Mark and Fiona got all the shots we wanted (on the day you WILL forget these). On the wedding day they turned up on time. Were very approachable, friendly to our guests, professional and made us feel so relaxed and more like our friends taking our photographs and not a photographer giving us directions. We loved working with them and cannot recommend them enough! If you book them you will not be disappointed!

Amanda & Brendan· 2015 June

Just a quick email to let you know how pleased we were with the amazing wedding photos. They turned out really gorgeous. We loved the ‘First Look’ photos and the amazing setting in the background. We cannot thank you enough for how you made us feel so at ease on the day and the fun and laughter we had with you both in the morning. You both did an amazing job and even our guests were complimenting you for weeks after, saying how friendly and easy going you both were. We had a ball participating in the photo booth after the reception and the pictures turned out great. Many thanks for making the day so memorable.

Gráinne & Ryan· 2014 Barberstown Castle Wedding

Wow what a lovely couple to work with!! Honestly the best photographers, we are so pleased with all our pictures!! They were so easy to work with, fun and made us feel at ease which is so important on your wedding day! I can’t recommend you enough to anyone getting married!!

Sinead & Alan· 2014 Carton House Wedding

Myself and Davy just want to say a big thank you for being our photographers for our wedding! My friends and family have commented on your extremely professional, relaxed and fun approach. It was a pleasure working with you. We have passed on your name!

Sorcha & Davy· 2013 Cabra Castle Wedding

We loved having two photographers and you both were brilliant. We totally recommend you guys to anybody getting married. We loved the fact that we looked ourselves and you both caught everything. We wanted a “fly on the wall” approach to our day and we can say that you both achieved this with great professionalism. Thank you so so much, can’t wait to get the albums.

Alucia & Jeff· 2013 Carton House

Thanks Mark for all your hard work. I hope I wasn’t a bridezilla lol. It was a great day and you both played a major part in that fact. Loving the album and I will definitly recommend you to friends. Thanks a million 

Laura & Peter· 2012 Carton House Wedding

Mark & Fiona, words can never describe how incredible you both really are. We are so blessed that we had you both photograph our special day. From the moment we both met you we just knew that you were the wedding photographers for us! Your loving, caring, outgoing and fun personalities put us immediately at ease and knew we were in the best of hands, we both really felt you were our friends on our wedding day. You captured absolutely every little detail and we are really blown away with how beautiful each photograph is! We cannot thank you both enough, we are forever grateful. All of our love, your friends Alanna & Jonny xx

Alanna & Jonny· February 25th Cliff At Lyons

We cannot begin to explain how thrilled we are with our photos, they are more than what we could ever have hoped for. We knew when we met Mark and Fiona, that they would suit our day as photographers. From the moment they set to work on the morning of our wedding, they gave our day 100%. Their calming presence and attentiveness helped our day run smoothly. They reassured and encouraged us during those moments when nerves take over. But most importantly, their work captured the little moments and the personalities of everyone so truthfully. Two lovely people, talented, and truly professional. They are more than just wedding photographers. 

Claire & Adrian· April 1st 2017 Summerhill House Hotel

We looked at a number of photographers when we decided to get married, we chose Mark and Fiona as they had the relaxed attitude we were looking for and absolutely stunning pictures to match. It turns out Fiona is also a dab hand at flower arranging as on the day she rearranged my bouquet when the one that arrived wasn’t right. They work so well together and the photographs really emulate this. We couldn’t have done it without their experience and guidance up to and throughout the day. They knew the venue very well and made sure all our relatives and friends were captured while seamlessly blending into the crowd.

Sarah-Jae & Jamie· October 14th 2016 Castle Leslie Wedding

Mark and Fiona Fennell came highly recommended and choosing them to be our photographers was one of the best decisions we made. They were a great team who made us feel very relaxed and comfortable throughout the day. They were extremely organised and professional. They captured some amazing moments and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. Lots of our guests commented on how discreet they were. We would happily recommend them to everyone!

Sarah & Sam· 2016 August 27th

Do yourself a favour and book these guys!! unbelievable from start to finish. Mark is so energetic and Fiona is a gem!!! Them made us feel so at ease from start to finish.

Ciaran Devlin· 2016 August 1st

Mark & Fiona were amazing from the 1st time we met to the finished photos. They were so friendly & really made everyone feel relaxed. Made sure to capture all the photo’s we asked, were unobtrusive & all round amazing! Our photos turned out better than i could imagine. We also used their videographer (Rick) and hardly noticed he was there for the day – yet he got some fantastic footage. If you have not booked a photographer yet, you need to book the Fennells!

Ken & Donna· 2016 July 9th

I cannot say enough good things about Mark and Fiona Fennell! We chose them as our wedding photographers based on their amazing portfolio and natural, unobtrusive style. They were exactly what we were looking for! We met with Mark a month before the wedding and we instantly knew we had made the right choice. He had such a great personality and listened to everything we wanted while giving great tips for the day. On our wedding day, Mark and Fiona were outstanding! They put us both so much as ease and we had a great laugh with them, as did our guests. They just blended into the background, while managing to capture the story and emotion of our day. Our photos turned out truly amazing, Mark and Fiona captured every special moment along with so much that we didn’t see on the day. I honestly cannot recommend the Fennells enough, so professional and easy to work with and we are left with the most beautiful photos and memories of our day that Paul and I will cherish forever.

Lisa & Sharkey· 2016 July 2nd

I can truly say our wedding day would not have been the same experience only for Mark and Fiona. From the minute they walked into my mams house on the morning they were so friendly and really good fun.. Our pictures are absolutely amazing, I actually can’t stop looking at them. I still don’t know how I will narrow it down for the album, they are all unreal.. We met with Mark on a couple of occasions before the wedding to go through exactly what we wanted from the day and they certainly delivered. Having the 2 of them there was great, Mark would take all the posing pictures while Fiona stood in the background taking all the ‘in the moment’ shots. She was always there to make sure I looked OK, fixing my dress and veil when it needed. They went above and beyond to get the perfect shot, at one point Marks arms had come out in a huge rash from standing in a hedge taking our picture (the picture was amazing btw). I really can’t recommend these guys enough. They always responded to me straight away with any questions I had. Thanks so much guys, and going by some of the other reviews I have read everyone feels the exact same..

Gemma & Darren· 2016 June 3rd

What can we say – Mark and Fiona were amazing! From the very first contact, to receiving our wedding pictures, they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were really quick to respond when we emailed with questions / requests and they made us feel so at ease every step of the way. So many of our guests commented about how discrete they were throughout the day. We were really impressed with how quickly they set up the formal shots – shepherding family members is not an easy task but they made it seem effortless. We had requested some specific photos and Mark and Fiona made sure that none of them were missed. When we received our photographs, we were over the moon with them – they were perfect! There was a lovely mix of candid and traditional photos. We couldn’t have been happier with them and we’re so delighted that we chose Mark and Fiona to capture our special day. They definitely didn’t disappoint.

Orla & Mike· 2016 6th May

I could not recommend Mark and Fiona enough to anyone planning a wedding. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They have an incredible ability to make you feel so relaxed and not be aware you are being photographed. If you are someone that would rather natural photos as opposed to the staged and in my opinion sometimes cheesy wedding pics then these guys are for you. We could not have been happier with our photos. A lot of our guests commented to us after the wedding how friendly the photographers were which is testiment to the positive impact they had on our day.

Michelle & Shane· 2016 22nd April

I am finally settled back from my wedding two weeks ago and I could not wait to write a review on “The Fennells”. I wish I can give them more than 5 stars! Mark and Fiona were such pleasure to have as our photographers at our wedding. They were super fun, quirky and very professional. Unfortunately, it rained all day but we were rest assured that we will have a lot of beautiful photos indoors at Carton House. They made us feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. They were also very patient considering we had a big wedding party. I highly recommend The Fennells to everyone! I would like to sincerely thank Mark and Fiona!

Rana & Andrew· 2016 2nd April

Mark and Fiona are amazingly talented photographers. They absolutely made our day. Hands down the best choice for your photos. So friendly, funny and an absolute pleasure to be around. We couldn’t praise them enough.

Noelle & Andy Clifford· 2015 22nd December

Mark and Fiona were amazing to deal with, we could not be happier with the photos taken of our special day and our wedding album is amazing!! We would highly recommend the fennels to any couple getting married. They are top wedding photographers

Claire & Anthony· 2015 October 2nd

Cannot rate Mark and Fiona high enough! We first met them in the RDS wedding show in 2014 where their pictures really caught our eye. We were really impressed with their ability to capture beautiful scenes but also beautiful moments. For example, while looking through the books, we saw a stolen moment of a bride’s dad having a cup of tea the morning of the wedding amidst the mayhem and knew they were the team for us. We spoke to Fiona that day and we were really impressed with how professional and friendly they were. We then returned home to discuss and review their website and decided to go ahead and book. Mark was so accomodating at arranging a time and place to meet us as we weren’t local to Dublin. When he heard we had booked kinnitty castle for the wedding, he made sure to bring past work at this venue which assured us we had made the right decision and we quickly agreed on a package. Mark kept in contact in the weeks coming up to the wedding, taking names of family members and pictures we wanted to take and a simple plan was put in place. They also indulged us in agreeing to try different shots personal to us. On the day of the wedding, Mark and Fiona were so calm and professional and that calmness couldn’t help but rub off on everyone. They were never intrusive but both able to capture the most magical moments of the day without us even realising! We had so much fun taking the pictures after the ceremony. It only felt like we were gone ten minutes but in that time Mark produced some spectacular shots of us in front of the castle or out in the woods or even magical ones under the moonlight! They stayed until after the speeches as arranged, capturing some amazing shots of us and our guests. The wonderful service did not stop there.; the photos arrived exactly to the week they had said and continued right up to designing our wedding albums. We collected our books today and are delighted how the spirit of the day was captured completely in it’s pages. We cannot recommend Mark and Fiona enough.

Lisa & Oran· 2015 January 2nd Kinnitty Castle

Mark and Fiona are professional and friendly we are so happy with our pictures and would definitely recommend them.

Mr & Mrs Hogan· 2015 March

We are sitting here with the very difficult task of choosing the photographs for our album. Mark and Fiona captured so many gorgeous pictures from the morning to the ceremony to the reception. They are so professional and yet so relaxed to work with. They didn’t stop all day! Guests even commented on how good they were. I have and will be recommending them to future brides and grooms! Thank you both so much x

Marie-Anne & Ian· 2014 December

Mark and Fiona shot our wedding on April 23rd and they were amazing!! They were with us all day from the morning in my mams right up until after the first dance. The shots they took are all beautiful and they managed to get some without the huge soppy grin on my face that were truly stunning. They captured all of the emotions of the day and made us feel so at ease throughout the day. Mark has a way of directing people without having to direct them so it made everything flow so well, while Fiona has a quiet confidence that just keeps you calm and settled.We could not have chosen a better team to photograph our wedding and I would recommend them to anyone planning their wedding!!

Jennifer & Ian· 2015 April 23rd Cabra Castle

Mark and Fiona were amazing. From our first meeting they were so relaxed and listened to what we wanted from our photos. On the day, they put us completely at ease and we had great fun taking our photos. The photos turned out beautifully and we couldn’t be happier with them. We would highly recommend Mark and Fiona to anyone.

Hannah & Niall· 2014 November 23th

I dont know were to start , both Mark & Fiona a huge thank you from us both . You guys were amazing ,you made the photographs so effortless on our big day and put everyone at ease . Considering the bride & groom spend a chunk of the day with the photographer you guys made it so easy and enjoyable , so much so our family & bridal party also commented on how great you guys were. Last but not least we just received our wedding photographs . WOW!!! Words can’t explain how fabulous they are even better then we both could ever have imagined. Your both so talented and a great couple to work with . We will without hesitation recommend you guys to all our friends due to get married xxx

Christine & Michael· 2014 December 4th Carton House

Mark and Fiona are a fantastic team and helped make the day so enjoyable. Through their photos, we have a wonderful story in pictures of our day. We’ve just picked up the album (we were a bit slow!) and couldn’t be happier with it. The style of photos we were looking for, they got spot on and the quality is second to none. On the day itself, they helped relax us and our families during the most ‘formal’ shots, and the rest of the time you were barely aware of them snapping away, capturing all the detail. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is getting married. The best wedding photographers in the business

Pamela & Eoghan· 2013 September Druids Glen

Mark and Fiona provide an absolutely outstanding photography service. I met them both at the Citywest wedding show and after 5 minutes of speaking to them and looking through their photos my gut feeling was to book them for our wedding. We booked them a year in advance (like many other couples) and throughout the year Mark would ring and check in and let us know when we’d next hear from him. Before the wedding we sat down and went through everything we wanted out of our wedding photographs and Mark took us through how the day would pan out. On the day, what can I say, I felt so at ease with the both of them. I didn’t feel nervous or shy they were so down to earth and had fun with us, our wedding party and our guests. When we received our photos we were in absolute awe at how beautiful and amazing they were. I found it so difficult to pick photos for the album and when the album came it was put together so well, it was truly the story of our day and that’s what a good photograph can capture. I am so happy I went with my gut feeling the day I met Mark and Fiona, thanks to you both for the beautiful photos we’ll cherish forever.

Deirdre & David· 2014 Knightsbrook Hotel Wedding

Well all we can say is you both were great and it went by so smoothly. Thank God Fiona was there for my wardrobe malfunction (she’s not just a skilled photographer lol). The photos are beautiful and even better than we expected. A massive thumbs up from the McGuires.

Siobhán & Luke· 2014 June The Four Seasons Hotel

Mark and Fiona photographed our wedding in Killashee house. We found them both to be extremely professional and friendly. They did a fantastic job of making us feel at ease. We love the mix of posed and natural photos they took and we’re delighted with our album. We can’t recommend them highly enough!

CaitrĂ­ona & Garry· 2014 August

Thank you SO much you did a fantastic job 🙂 we are so so pleased with them, I’m not sure how we are going to pic the ones for the album!!? We cant thank you enough!! They are really incredible – I cant stop looking at them!! 🙂

Sinead & Gerry· 2014 Cabra Castle Wedding

Laura & Peter· 2012 Carton House Wedding

As I am the third girl in my family to get married, I’ve been to my share of weddings and you guys are the best wedding photographers we’ve seen in action. Thank you for making everyone feel relaxed on the morning and throughout our day. Great photos is all I can say, truly amazing wedding photographers.

It was a cold wedding day and I’m glad you would never know it by the photos. Thank you so much for doing such a great job on our day. The album is beautiful and my mum loves having her own album which was displayed to everybody that called over the Christmas.

Louise & Jeremy· 2012 Four Seasons Wedding

We just wanted to thank Mark and Fiona so much for your work last Friday! I think both myself and Gary agree that booking you was the best decision we made about the day. From the moment you both arrived at the house, you brought an air of calm with you and were just so lovely and an absolute pleasure to be around. Fiona was fantastic throughout the whole day helping me manage with the dress, veil and hair issues! And you had such lovely ideas for shots and we were so relaxed. We can’t wait to see the finished product – we know they’re going to be just amazing!

Orlaith & Gary· 2017 July 21st Rathsallagh

Finding the right photographer was so very important for us. We loved the Fennell’s work and when we met Mark we liked him instantly. He genuinely has the likeabilty factor, he was so easy to talk to and he listened to our requirements. We knew there and then that they were the right photographers for us. Although very professional, (mails are replied to promptly, follow up calls etc) you really feel like you’ve known them forever. Photographers are so involved in your day that you have to be comfortable with them and I truly couldn’t recommend these guys enough. Their work is absolutely amazing and we were thrilled with our photos. Fiona was there every step of the way and helped me so much with advice and my dress that she was like another bridesmaid. Everyone commented on how good they were and that they weren’t intrusive in any way. They were very well organised. The quality of their work is outstanding and we were thrilled to have them as part of our day. We recommend you book them ASAP!!! Mark & Fiona, again thank you so much for everything. Gerard & Karen.

Karen & Gerard· 2016 October 8th Farnham Estate

Mark and Fiona were very professional on the day. They were relaxed and chilled which put us at ease but still kept things moving which gave us extra time to spend with our guests . Fiona was always there to give a helping hand with fixing dresses and viels. We received our photos and we were very happy with the end result. 5 stars all round

Yvonne & Peter· 2016 October 7th Cabra Castle

Where do we even begin to thank The Fennells for capturing our big day? Friendly, reliable and relaxed are probably the best words I can find to describe them. They made my husband and I feel totally at ease and the whole day couldn’t have been more laid back. Mark met with us a couple of weeks before the wedding and we discussed everything we wanted with him – nothing was too much to ask. A specific request was that he capture the moment my best friends saw me for the first time. The picture came out brilliantly and it will be something I’ll treasure forever. Whittling down the pictures to pick the album is going to be a mammoth task! With two photographers, you really get to look back on every minute of your big day and we cannot thank Mark and Fiona enough for everything. They are a formidable duo and my advice for future brides is simple – choose The Fennells, you won’t regret it.

Sinead & Peter· 2016 August 6th Lough Rynn

The Fennells were incredible from the moment we met to the last moment of our wedding night. Mark and Fiona mingled with our guests while getting those candid shots we requested. An absolute first class service. What went above and beyond was that they knew all our immediate family by first name. It made the whole experience so much more relaxed. Any photos which we requested (we 8 bridesmaids and groomsmen each) Mark and Fiona happily obliged no matter how wacky it seemed! I would highly recommend The Fennels for anyone’s wedding, we enjoyed every moment of our day with them!

Julie Ferguson and Scott· 2016 August 23rd

We can’t thank Mark and Fiona enough for all their hard work. The pictures turned out better than we could have imagined. Looking through them getting to relive the emotions all over again. There were pictures of moments I didn’t know were captured they blended into the background so well. It was a long day, Mark and Fiona were there for it all the tears and the laughter. They were so easy to work with and we knew they were right for us from the beginning. Would highly recommend them you won’t be disappointed.

Gemma Rowe· 2016 July

I could not recommend Mark and Fiona enough. From the booking to getting the photo’s they made every minute of it hassle free.It was very important to us to pick the right photographers. We had shopped around for a few weeks until I went to the RDS wedding fair. This is where I met Mark and Fiona and I knew from the moment we looked at their work that they were right for us and they did not disappoint.They are the nicest couple and they slotted into the day perfectly. They were a major part in the day running smoothly. Fiona was even on hand to fix my veil when the bridesmaid were forgetting to do it! The best way to describe them on the day was like your best friends we’re your photographers, they just felt part of the day from the very start. I honestly could not recommend these enough to everyone. I know from our wedding I have a queue of people wanting to use them for their special day.

Tracey & Gary· 2016 June 4th

We chose Mark and Fiona Fennell because we had seen the beautiful photos they took of a family member’s wedding and loved samples of their work on their website. Meeting Mark instantly put us at ease. He seemed genuinely interested in us as individuals and learning more about how we were planning our wedding day and what style of photos we appreciated. On the day itself Mark and Fiona were a lovely, fun, relaxed and professional presence – easily putting us and camera-shy family members at ease! Before we even saw the photos we were raving about Mark and Fiona and delighted to have them share in our day. Patient waiting to see the photos paid off. The photos were a lovely combination of well thought out posed, yet natural-looking, photos and beautiful intimate relaxed photos we didnt even know had been taken. We will treasure them. All the little details had been recorded. Our current challenge is choosing our favourites from the hundreds, to be part of our album. They’re clearly very busy and in demand, for good reason. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Maeve & Niall· 2016 May 26th

It was amazing to have Mark and Fiona as the photographers for our big day. They both made us feel so relaxed about getting the photos taken and so many of our friends and family have said the same. Having the two photographers meant that we captured so many moments and angles that we wouldn’t have otherwise got. Communication with Mark was great throughout and we found that all our ideas, no matter how weird and wacky were taken on board on the day. We just got the photos yesterday and they are amazing. Even better than we could have hoped for. Even battling hail and snow showers, mis-functioning sparklers, and rogue sensor lights, the pictures are unbelievable. To be honest, we couldn’t recommend Mark and Fiona more!

Jennifer & Alan· 2016 April 29th

I can’t speak highly enough of Mark and Fiona and how fantastic they were. One of the best things was that we met with Mark twice before the wedding to ensure we were all on the same page with what we wanted and to go through any specifics. We could completely relax on the wedding day and knew were in good hands for the photos. Having both Mark and Fiona taking photos also meant we got some great pictures of our guests enjoying themselves on the day. We also opted to have them stay till our first dance too which I am so happy about as they got some beautiful pictures of our first dance but also the guests all up dancing to the band as well. Overall a fantastic service, from beginning to end and I would highly recommend to any bride and grooms on the search for photographers.

Claire &Derek· 2016 8th April

Mark and Fiona were excellent, really easy to deal with from the moment we first contacted them. They were very professional and made our day so relaxed and were so quick with the formal photos! Got loads of gorgeous photos without spending hours of our day away from our guests 🙂 Would highly recommend them!

Teresa & Thomas· 2015 October

Mark and Fiona provide an absolutely outstanding photography service. I met them both at the Citywest wedding show and after 5 minutes of speaking to them and looking through their photos my gut feeling was to book them for our wedding. We booked them a year in advance (like many other couples) and throughout the year Mark would ring and check in and let us know when we’d next hear from him. Before the wedding we sat down and went through everything we wanted out of our wedding photographs and Mark took us through how the day would pan out. On the day, what can I say, I felt so at ease with the both of them. I didn’t feel nervous or shy they were so down to earth and had fun with us, our wedding party and our guests. When we received our photos we were in absolute awe at how beautiful and amazing they were. I found it so difficult to pick photos for the album and when the album came it was put together so well, it was truly the story of our day and that’s what a good photograph can capture. I am so happy I went with my gut feeling the day I met Mark and Fiona, thanks to you both for the beautiful photos we’ll cherish forever.

Deirdre· 2014 February

It is difficult to find the right words to compliment Mark & Fiona highly enough, from the first day we met them both in the RDS right up to this week when we received our beautiful photos, they were both friendly, polite and professional. Even more so than their truly fantastic photos on display in the RDS, what caught our attention more was how Mark & Fiona managed to put us at ease about the photography for our upcoming wedding. None of our worries seemed to faze them. On the morning of the wedding, Mark & Fiona arrived and gracefully fit into the melee in the house, putting everyone at ease straight away. Throughout the day, their confidence and calm couldn’t help but rub off on us, even when some things didn’t go as planned. They were both polite and professional throughout the day, managing to charm all of our family and friends, who have all been raving about them since. Having just received our photos, we are even more confident that we made the right decision on asking Mark & Fiona to be with us on the day, the photos brought us right back to the time and place! Truly beautiful! 🙂 We cannot recommend Mark & Fiona enough!!

Leonie & David· 2015 April

From start to finish Mark and Fiona were both very proffessional and friendly. Like all wedding couples we wanted to make sure we picked the right photographer because after the wedding day, it is the photographs that you will have for years to reflect on and that was important to us. We wanted our wedding album to capture our special day perfectly telling a story that we can re-live everytime we open the album. Fiona & Mark blended in the background from the house to the church taking some beautiful relaxed pictures allowing us to enjoy the morning and soak in the excitement. Prior to the day Mark had taken a list of family/friends that we wanted to get a picture of so on the day the pictures were taken and we got to enjoy our day and the entertainment we had organised so we didn’t feel like we missed anything! From all the photos Mark supplied us with we had a tough time narrowing down which to choose for our album as they were all gorgeous so in the end we had to add more pages to our album as we didnt want to leave any out. We just recieved our album and we are delighted with it, its exactly what we wanted – perfect. For anyone who wants to have the perfect wedding album capturing every emotion on the day we would recommend Mark & Fiona (its a bonus having the two photographers). Thanks again!

Fiona & Conor· 2014 December 27th Trim Castle

Myself and my husband wanted two photographers on our wedding day and spent a good amount of time researching but never found a duo we were comfortable with. From the moment we met Mark and Fiona we felt they were the right choice for us. Their down to earth personalities and ability to tell the story of the day through photography was exactly what we wanted. They were so easy to work with and listened to exactly what we wanted. On the day they were calm, professional yet funny and engaging too. They had a really good way of making camera shy people feel at ease. We just got our photos back and looking through them re-affirmed we had made the right choice. We are absolutely delighted with them and cant recommend them enough. Go ahead and book them! Thank you Mark & Fiona!

Louise Markham· 2014 October Caste Leslie

I would highly recommend Mark and Fiona. They were absolutely fantastic on the day and our photos are so beautiful. I honestly cannot recommend them enough. Thanks again!

Amy & David· 2015 January

We are so pleased we chose Mark and Fiona as our wedding photographers. We first met them at the RDS Bridal Show in January 2014 with only 6 months to plan our wedding! After meeting with a few different photographers we decided to book with Mark because of his relaxed, fun and professional manner. We hadn’t originally thought we wanted two photographers and a videographer but now we’re so glad we did! The whole team fit in seamlessly with the wedding and greatly added to everyone’s enjoyment of the day. All our family and friends absolutely love the photos and the video and we’re so excited to see the finished album soon! If you are considering Mark Fennell Photography for your wedding, book them right now! You will not be disappointed with their wonderful service.

Samantha Lynch· 2014 July 31st Tinakilly House

We just got our photos and we couldn’t be happier with them! We’d definitely recommend Mark & Fiona, they were so easy to work with. They put everyone at ease on the day and most importantly for us we got the great photos we wanted as well having plenty of time to meet our guests before dinner. Thanks again!

Brona & Ross· 2014 Ballymagarvey Village Wedding

What can I say, Mark and Fiona are amazing! They made everyone so relaxed on the day, they went about their work so professionally it was like they were not even there! I am so glad we booked them as our wedding photographers! The photos are brilliant and something we will cherish for the rest of our days! Thank you again for everything.

Lorna & Ian· 2014 Knightsbrook Hotel Wedding

We’d like to thank you and Fiona so much for last Saturday. I know we haven’t seen the photos yet but Shane and I were so happy on the day, you really made us both feel at ease and added to the fun we had throughout the day. Shane hates photos being taken of him so that was a massive task getting him to feel comfortable! 

Lorraine & Shane· 2014 Glenview Hotel Wedding

Keith· 2014 July Tankardstown

Thank you so much for making our day. The photos are amazing and I can’t recommend you enough. A true professional.

Mary & Steve· 2013 Castle Durrow Wedding

2014 was a whirlwind for us which is why I haven’t got to do this sooner. Looking back at our wedding photos brings back so many great memories and we were lucky enough to have chosen a great photographer to capture our amazing day. Mark was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was very professional and listened to our ideas and what we wanted on the day. He did exactly this and so much more. He and his lovely wife Fiona were great to have by our side on the day and they were everywhere we needed them without us even knowing. The photos they took captured the fun and laughter we had on our day and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. I would happily recommend Mark and Fiona to help make your day as special as ours was.

Orla· 2014 June Powerscourt

What a day it was. You were both amazing on the day. The photos were fun and relaxed, Henry was delighted you made him look good lol. I’ll contact Hello magazine and send them on the photos. We’ll be seeing you guys soon as my friend has booked you as well.
