We can?t thank Sheenagh and Barry enough for making our day so memorable? they brought fun and relaxation to the best day of our lives. We loved our photos and couldn?t believe we received some the next morning when we woke up! Everyone has commented on the pictures.

Thanks again guys? even though ye got sent to the wrong house for the grooms photos before the wedding and drove well out of the way? I?m sure you were cursing us! Apologies again.

And thanks for making our day amazing.

Karen and David.

Thank you guys for having us. We had a great day. No hassle with the wrong postcode given to David's house, we still got loads of photos with him and the lads at the Hotel.

Absolutely amazing service from Sheena and Donnacha. We had so much fun with them and they put us at ease straight away. They were extremely professional and got the photos taken so quickly so that we didn?t miss out on much of the action!!! I couldn?t recommend them more highly, exceptional!

We got married on December 29th, 2023. We had Sheena from Bismark as our photographer for our wedding day. She was with us both from early morning to the first dance and was fantastic throughout. We had come across her in previous weddings and we were aware how professional she was and we weren't disappointed on the day. She was top class as usual. Our parents on both sides amd extended family also kept mentioning how gorgeous the pictures were!We would have no hesitation in recommending Sheena and Bismark to other couples going forward. You won't be disappointed!

Sheenagh and Donnacha were an absolute dream team for our wedding! Sheenagh's presence during the morning preparations at Ballygarry was a calming force, while Donnacha effortlessly captured the moments with my husband and his groomsmen at our house. They made the entire experience enjoyable, bringing out the finer details and genuine joy of the day. Their outstanding work exceeded our expectations, and we're immensely grateful for their incredible talent and dedication! Highly recommended!

We would Recommend Sheenagh, Barry and Donnacha enough to any couple looking for a photographer for their big day. They were so professional and efficient on the day and were great craic to be around. We received a few photos back within 24 hours and got our full batch in just 4 weeks! Their knowledge of all things wedding and how the day goes kept us at ease and people are still commenting on how amazing they were! There aren?t enough stars here to give them the review they deserve! We enjoyed so much of our day with our guests as they were so efficient and fun - there wasn?t one photo out of 1000that we got back that we didn?t love!

Sheenagh and Barry went above and beyond for us. They were so chilled and easy going it made the day go so smoothly. I can't even begin to describe how they did so much more than take photos and we are so grateful for that. They work so well together and bring so much fun to the day. We recieved a lot of pictures that night, which were amazing and so lovely to wake up to. Would highly recommend this talented team, it was really a pleasure to have them at our wedding day.

Thank you so much!!

We highly recommend Bismark to any wedding couple. From the first moment we met them, they were absolutely fantastic. They kept us at ease right throughout the day and kept the nerves at bay. We had great craic with them and they really made our day so special for us. The photographs that we got were amazing and they managed to capture so many moments of our day that we missed ourselves throughout the day. They were also on hand to help with boutonnieres and other odd jobs. It very much felt like we had our friends doing the photography for our wedding. So many of our friends have also had Bismark at their weddings and it stands to reason, given the quality of service and product that Bismark deliver. Thank you again Sheenagh and Donnacha for everything.

I would recommend Sheenagh and Barry to any couple who are getting married. From the moment Sheenagh walked into my hotel room, I felt at ease and knew I was In good hands. Sheenagh and Barry are a beautiful couple who work so well professionally together- it is amazing to watch. Sheenagh and Barry created such a wonderful atmosphere while taking our photographs and I will forever be grateful for their presence on our wedding day. The day after our wedding, Sheenagh and Barry emailed a few photographs from our wedding day, I couldn't believe the pace they work at but most importantly the spectacular shots they took. They are the most talented people in the profession of photography and we are so happy we chose Bismark as our wedding photographers.

Thank you Sheenagh and Barry for capturing the most stunning photos and for being the most amazing pair to work with.

We would highly recommend Barry and Sheenagh to photograph your wedding day. Sheenagh was so attentive and caring on the wedding day looking after my dress and really knew how to get that perfect picture. She was so kind not to mention great fun! The two work so well together and capture your special day in such a beautiful way. They also sent us sample photos the day after the wedding which was so amazing to have - the quality of photos it?s brilliant and we were absolutely delighted with all the photos!

There are not enough words to describe Sheenagh as a photographer. She is out of this world. She made us feel so relaxed so happy she is just the most down to earth lady I have ever met. Absolutely every person at our wedding complemented how fantastic our photographer was. We had some giggles on the day all provided by Sheenagh herself. What an amazing day she made it for us all I can never thank her enough. ??????????

We booked Bismark for our wedding and due to covid we had to postpone for 12 months and there was no problem with our switching dates. On the day of our wedding we had Sheenagh & Donnacha who were both amazing from start to finish with the bits of advise through out the day, no matter how small. They made us feel so relaxed that we hardly knew they were there, they captured every moment for us and some times we didn't even know they took the photos. We had 2 flower girls and both Donnacha & Sheenagh were brilliant with them, had loads of patience. They were good craic on the day, both of our families and guests enjoyed them and commented afterwards how lovely they were on the day. We would highly recommend Bismark Photography. Thanks again Diane & Denis

Right from the top. Myself and Karen decided in February last year, that we organise our wedding for August 2022 .

We gave Barry a call in relation to see if he was available to do the photography for the big day. We then sat down in June this year to go through the whole process for the day, and to make sure we we're happy with everything that was in place for the day ahead.

Fast forward to August and the wedding day arrives, and with all the excitement and bit of nerves in the air, Barry and his Daughter Sarah arrived to get to work.
Even in the heat with the weather we had, we barely noticed that they were there taking photos, and from the best man to the bridesmaid's, it couldn't of been any more relaxed than it was, but at the same time the most professional with every move.

The fun we had with the outdoor photo's, was made more enjoyable with the jokes coming out from the man behind the camera, all of the this only adding to the occasion and being talked about throughout the evening.

We can't recommend Bismark Photography enough, it was one of the easiest and best decisions we made in relation to the wedding, and we can't wait to see our day in in pictures.

To Barry, Sheenagh and Sarah, thank you so much for all your effort and help throughout this whole experience, absolutely faultless.

We booked Bismark photography without knowing a thing about them. We booked them in 2021 when covid made it difficult to meet suppliers. In the lead up to our big day, I had heard from other suppliers that they were very nice and very good. I wasn?t let down. Sheenagh and Donnacha were a pleasure to deal with. My new husband and I felt very comfortable around them. They were good craic on the day and it felt like we knew them forever. It was great having 2 photographers which were surprisingly similarly priced to some other single photographers. Sheenagh emailed me a selection of photos late on the wedding night. I couldn?t believe our luck! The pictures were so nice to have to be able to show people the following day. All our bridal party said how ?sound? they both were too. I love the pictures we received so far and I can?t wait to see more. I would recommend highly recommend them.

Sheenagh and Donnacha were amazing from start to finish. They?re the best at what they do. Whether it?s offering advice throughout the day based on their years of experience, or repeatedly making sure you?re enjoying yourself and giving you all the time you need to spend time with your guests, I don?t think there?s a better testimonial for photographers. They?re like part of the bridal party, always up for a bit of craic, and when we looked back on our wedding we realised how massive a part of our day they were. They?re more than photographers, they?ll make sure every aspect of your day is looked after so that you can relax, but at the same time you know they?re getting all the photos you want. I would recommend them to any couple getting married and can?t wait to see them again at many more events in the years to come!

I honestly can't put into words how amazing Sheenagh and Donnacha were for our wedding on 22/7/22. They were so outstanding from start to finish. Sheenagh went above and beyond for myself helping me get into my dress and chatting with my two little girls, keeping them occupied all morning. And Donnacha for the lads fit in like another groomsman. My husband said he couldn't have asked for a better man for the job! They were so friendly and bubbly all day and so professional and obviously great craic! I would highly recommend Bismark as a photographer for any occasion (not just a wedding). We had the best day and we can't wait to see our pictures, I know they will be fab! You won't go wrong with them! 10/10 superb!!!!!!!!

We recently had the privilege of having Sheenagh and Barry from Bismark capture our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the service provided.
Both Sheenagh and Barry came into our homes and instantly became part of our families, their friendly banter and bubbly presence on the morning made everyone so chilled and relaxed.
Nothing was too much an ask and their ability to make people smile and laugh is out of this world.
Bismark captured our day to perfection and we are delighted we choose them to be part of our special day.
A special mention has to be made for the patience shown to our three little boys by both Sheenagh and Barry, they were super with the kids.
I would recommend Bismark to anyone out there looking for a wedding photographer, you will not regret it, they are simply amazing photographers and even nicer people.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU BISMARK!!

We got married on July 16th 2022 and we had the most amazing day with Sheenagh & Donnacha. From the moment we booked them, their professionalism was second to none. So approachable, easy going and communication was always excellent!

Between Sheenagh tying the perfect bow on the bridesmaid dresses and Donncacha sewing the strap of my wedding dress back on, they really are all rounders!!!

They were so helpful on the day, as they know how everything works, they really put your mind at ease and everything just flowed so perfectly. Both of our families and all our wedding guests commented on how lovely both Sheenagh and Donnacha were and how obliging they were when guests asked to have their photos taken. They honestly just felt our like wedding guests and blended in so well.

Mark and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with them and never felt like we were missing out on any part of our day to get photos taken, it was the perfect balance.

We received a sneak peak of photos the following day!!! Which is such a lovely touch! The final wedding photos are absolutely stunning, we couldn't be happier with them, we felt like we relived the whole day just looking at them. Memories to look back on for life.

Book Bismark, you won't regret it! Thanks Sheenagh & Donnacha!

From the moment we contacted Bismark they were so professional and prompt to reply. To be honest we were 99% sure we would book Bismark before we even met! Once we met Barry we knew he was the photographer for us! He put us both at ease and made us laugh! We could be ourselves! Barry came to my parents house the morning of the wedding and Mark was with my husband's family at their house. Mark and Barry were the dream team on our wedding day! Nothing was too much. They captured all the special moments of the best day of our lives. We had 6 sample photos waiting in our inbox the morning after our wedding, this was a lovely touch, a sneak peak of what was to come! We got the rest of our photos 3 days before the date given to us, another pleasant surprise! We LOVE our photos. The walk through Kinsale in heels was 100% worth it for our AMAZING photos! If we were to do it all again we wouldn't change a thing!
Professional and good craic (despite Barry being a Liverpool fan....my husband made me say that!!!)

We were married at Barnabrow Country House on 9th July 2022. Sheenagh was our official wedding photographer and her photos completely captured the love and happiness of our special day. Totally professional in her approach but at the same time relaxed and attentive. Sheenagh blended in with the occasion and guests, and has produced some stunning images for us that will forever re-kindle memories and moments of our day, one we will never forget.
We met Sheenagh a couple of weeks before the wedding at her studio - to go through arrangements and felt her warmth immediately. She put us at ease, and all of this shows in the photos she produced for us.

We would have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending Sheenagh and the Bismark team to anyone looking for a top class wedding photographer. We simply couldn't have chosen anyone better!
Massive thanks go to Sheenagh from James and Jennifer

I got married 24th May 2021 due to my Dad being sick. I knew my Dad wouldn't be there for my big day so brought it forward and got married in the registry office. I got onto Barry explained my situation and asked if he could come to the house and registry office to get some pics and of course there was no problem. Barry ended up in hospital but wouldn't let me down and sent his his partner Sheenagh. Omg I can honestly say from start to finish she was absolutely AMAZING. She went above and beyond got the most beautiful pictures with my Dad and family. These pictures are now priceless to me. I cannot thank her enough.
I then had my big day on the 24th June 2022 where I had Barry do my pictures. From the minute he arrived he was on the ball with everything. He was even running around sorting the grooms button holes handing on our poems running here and there. He never once complained just got involved and got the jobs done that needed to be done. Barry was absolutely AMAZING also. A true gent. We had a great laugh on the day, he made us feel at ease and there were times you wouldn't even know he was there.
I cannot recommend Bismark enough, so professional and lovely to deal with. My experience is 10 out of 10. Anyone getting married get booking Bismark ye will not regret it.

Sheenagh and Barry, what can I say but thank you so much. From the very start of the day you guys were amazing! You kind of became part of the furniture and made us all so comfortable and it just felt so natural all day. You got all the pictures we asked for and more and it never felt too much. You guys were so professional but so at ease with everyone and we were all so at ease with ye. It was a seamless day and even the rain after the ceremony didn?t bother us and ye were well equipped for it!! I couldn?t have asked for anything better and to have two of you there was a bonus. Best money ever spent I reckon! Having the album done a little earlier than planned was so much appreciated I couldn?t have been happier! I would recommend you guys to everyone! Thank you so much from us both for a wonderfully easy and relaxed day!

We had two rescheduled due to lockdown and they were accommodating each time. On the day, they made us all laugh and put anybody who doesn't normally like getting their picture taken at ease. They were flexible with the pictures we wanted and they turned out great. Thank you!

Sheenagh and Barry were absolutely amazing. Sheenagh was so helpful on the morning of the wedding. She made getting ready so much easier and we could not have done it without her. They put myself and my husband at ease throughout the day. I cannot recommend them enough. They were both so lovely to deal with.

This was our third bite at staging this wedding & we were lucky that we had Barry & Sheenagh with us right from the start. Knowledge of the Munster wedding scene is unsurpassed and the time & money they saved us by putting us in touch with the right suppliers & giving us honest opinions of the type of venue that would suit us as the rules changed meant they?d saved us more than we paid them.

Before the wedding they were there to offer advice & ask what suggestions we wanted for pictures on the day & to reassure us about times & scheduling.

On the day they were the first people at the venue, their good form was infectious & while they were professional they didn?t disturb the bride or groom party.
After the ceremony they knew exactly what shots would work & had areas set up ready for group & couple pictures so it didn?t take up much of our day.
They left nobody out yet did it with such efficiency that we were hardly missed at the drinks reception.

After the ceremony we had a set of pictures sent by email before the reception ended & many many beautiful snaps sent to us within a fortnight from which we need to choose from for our album.

They are people that love their work and it shows. We?ll never need a wedding photographer again but I recommend anyone looking for a wedding photographer not to look beyond Bismarck.

Where do I start ! Barry and Sheenagh did the Photography for our wedding in The Maryborough hotel recently and the only way I could describe them is perfection.
Two of the best in the business by a country mile - from planning what shots we wanted in the lead up to the wedding , to the actual day itself & how our pictures turned out , they truely were spectacular.
Two people who you can tell that they really take pride in what they do - cannot recommend highly enough .
Thanks again guys from the bottom of our hearts, you brought the smiles and captured our memories on our big day,

Sheenagh and Barry were recommended to us to capture the special memories of our big day. They certainly did deliver the best service. Barry met the lads and Sheenagh met the girls early that morning. Everything was very professional and smooth flowing and we had mighty Craic along the way. They helped us with more than just photography on the day. We were absolutely blown away with our photo images and how quickly we received them. We would both highly recommend Barry and Sheenagh for your big day. You won?t be disappointed.

Myself and Stephen could not reccomend Sheenagh and Barry more. They were fantastic and from the start put us all at ease. We got so much compliments from our guests at how relaxed they felt during the photographs and throughout the day. The photos turned out fantastic and were very natural which is exactly what we wanted. They captured every moment throughout the day when we didn't even know they were been taken. We will 100 percent be using them for future family events. Thanks again

It was such a relief to have two people making the atmosphere fun and easy going on the day! They were so professional but I felt like they were also part of my bridal party! We were gutted they had to leave the party at the end of the night!! Our pictures turned out amazing- we were laughing in every picture and it was down to you guys! Thanks so much ye honestly made our day!

They were much more than just photographers on our wedding day they were like apart of our bridal party for our day and our photos turned out absolutely beautiful.
Having 2 photographers is definitely the way to go, they capture so much more & the different angles of all our photos are amazing.

We will never be able to thank Barry & Sheenagh enough for capturing our day so brilliantly. They have fabulous professional photographers.

There is a genuine and sincere warmth for weddings you can?t help but feel from Bismark photography. They get the most out of the scenery and venues and do so in a relaxed and understanding way so you feel completely happy with that aspect of your day. I found all interactions with them easy and informative. We would highly recommend them for your wedding day.

Sheenagh puts you to ease she was with me (the bridge) and Donncadh was with the groom and he was A1 at relaxing them all to get them into photos. From the day we first engaged with them to the day we received our photos it was always a pleasure to deal with them and would have no hestiation in recommending them to anyone. Thanks again for everything Sheenagh and Donncadh

Could not recommend these enough. Sheena was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. As our wedding was a covid one things were a little diffrent and she went above and beyond to settle the nerves on the day. She had such a relax manner about her we couldnt help but feel the same. She made all our guests feel very secure in the tough times we were in and it's so nice to look back and have all the memories of the day. Very quick in sending the pictures also. Defo one to consider.

We'd a pandemic-impacted wedding, so it's always been change, change, change, but Barry and Sheenagh couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. After splitting our church wedding & hotel reception into separate dates nearly 2 years apart, we spent the interim going back to the pair of them for everything from maternity shoot to first family portrait. They make the dream team and we couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Barry and Sheenagh from Bismark Photography photographed our wedding in the Falls Hotel in 2016. I originally met them in a wedding fair in Cork and decided to go with them straight away due to their friendly easy going nature and beautiful photo's. They were brilliant on the day getting all the key photos that we wanted while adding a bit of fun as well. I recommended them to my friend who was equally happy with them and I returned to get my baby's first photo's taken there. Thank you so much for such a great day and giving us memories to last a lifetime.

We were lucky to have the Dream Team of Sheenagh and Barry take our pictures at our wedding a few years ago after they were recommended by a number of friends who had used them at their own weddings. They really are brilliant at what they do and made the whole process of taking the pictures a fun party of the day. The album was amazing and we couldn't remember half the shots that were taken as they make you feel so relaxed and that showed in the quality of the pictures. We have been back to their studio since to do family pictures which is a testament to the quality of their work. Continued success and keep up the great work.

From the minute we met Sheenagh and Barry, we knew that's who we wanted to take our wedding photo's. The quality of their work is exceptional, no request was too small or too big. They made us both feel at ease throughout the day, would hardly notice they were there at times, but captured some really special moments that family and friends weren't posing for. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment recommending them for any wedding or any occasion for that matter. You won't be disappointed.

She made all the photos fun. We had photos taken with all finbarr's family before the church and in my house as well and it was lovely to have them from both sides. She got loads of photos of all our friends and family throughout the day.
The photo albums we got were beautiful.
