Alan’s style is relaxed yet elegant. He will capture your day in a photojournalistic and cinematic way, mostly unposed and definitely no cheese, with lots of candids and special moments you may otherwise have missed.

When you look back on your photographs and films, they will evoke happy memories and take you back to the real feelings of your special day.

Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film is based in Faithlegg, Co. Waterford and is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Alan and Bríd Golden. 

With many years working in close partnership with their wedding couple clients, you can be certain of a professional experience from first contact through to delivery of your wedding. Have a read through the many '5 Star' reviews to get a sense of clients experiences.

Golden Moments offer both Wedding Photography & Wedding Videography, either separately or as a joint package. The joint package will have one photographer (Alan) and one videographer. 

Unlike most full time professionals, they shoot and edit everything 'in-house' so you can be assured of 100% quality and a consistency in-line with your expectations. 

The Golden Moments contact page makes it easy to check availability and if your date is free, you will receive full details with a price tailored to your wedding, including travel costs. There are no hidden extras, such as a 'stay late' fee. You can expect a response to your query within an hour or two. 

To compliment their Wedding Photography packages, on offer is a broad range of wedding albums from both Queensberry and Koy Lab. If you are not sure but think you might like to explore the possibility of having your favourite images in a beautiful wedding album, there is a full range to consider after your wedding. 

Wedding Film full day packages include drone coverage and Golden Moments are fully insured and licensed with the Irish Aviation Authority. They will contact your venue in advance of your wedding to get flight clearance, one thing less for you to worry about.

Alan has extensive photographic and film making experience built around a City & Guilds Photography degree so you can be assured your once in a lifetime wedding memories are in safe hands.

His style of wedding photography & wedding videography is a blend of photojournalism and contemporary fashion inspired photography. This allows him to be unobtrusive when he needs to be but also will ensure that he can bring that special ‘wow’ factor to your wedding images and movies. 

Alan's photography has won many awards and has appeared in local and national press and many online wedding sites.

Alan took our photos for our wedding in July. He made us both so comfortable on the day and the photos we have gotten back are just fabulous, we couldn't have asked for more. He managed to capture moments that we didn't even notice on the day. We would have no hesitation in recommending Alan to anyone.

Highly recommend Golden Moments for wedding videography. Alan was so helpful, professional and friendly. He gave us fantastic advice and guidance in the lead up to our wedding. He was remarkably accommodating when our plans changed last minute as a result of COVID restrictions. On the day he was relaxed and unobtrusive. The footage of our wedding day is beautiful, the quality is second to none and I couldn't be happier.

We could not recommend Golden Moments enough. From the moment we contacted them they gave a first class service from start to finish. Alan was incredibly professional and knowledgable, he knew our venue inside out so really captured the day perfectly. Alan was extremely friendly, calm and we almost felt he was a guest at the wedding. He really put us at ease for the entire day and needless to say the end result of our Wedding video is absolutely perfect. Anyone who we have shown have commented on how beautiful and professional it was, we have our own Disney Movie :) Now that our wedding is over, our video is so precious to us to be able to relive the day. We can’t Alan enough and we would definitely recommend them to all upcoming brides and grooms.

If you are looking for a highly professional videographer to capture those perfect moments with utmost beauty do not hesitate to contact Golden Moments. Alan and Peter were a pleasure to work with and they were so discreet on the day that allowed them to capture some beautiful natural footage of our wedding, those memories which we will cherish forever. The music perfectly fits with our lovely day and I can honestly say that the video is just magical. Its a perfect blend of pure talent, a great eye for capturing the essence of the day along with perfect editing. We are so happy! Thank you so much Golden Moments.
Response from Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film
Thank you so much Drishya. Your wedding was so beautiful and it was wonderful that your family who couldn't travel were able to watch live on the day and also can now watch the full celebrations with your edited films. You looked stunning and your wedding day was just wonderful.

We had to postpone our wedding in March and decided to go ahead with a very small wedding in the Summer. Just our two immediate families at the church and then my house. We asked Alan to take an hour of photographs for us after the ceremony. He insisted in being at the church also and took more than a few hours of photographs back at the house. He was incredibly generous with his time and he was a fantastic addition to our day! He provided the much needed structure and organisational skills we lacked on the day. He captured so many amazing shots in a short space of time. Alan was incredibly relaxed and encouraging during the day. Our families and ourselves are so grateful for the photographs. We have also booked Alan for our postponed after wedding party. We would highly recommend Alan as a wedding photographer!

I want to say a huge thank you to Alan for the wonderful work he did both on the day of our wedding and on the beautiful wedding video he produced for us. I also have to mention Bríd who was always helpful and quick to reply to any queries I had. From the very beginning I felt we were in safe hands with Golden Moments and that we were working with people who were trustworthy and professional, I can't emphasise enough how important this was to us after being let down by a previous vendor. From start to finish Alan was fantastic to deal with efficient and so helpful. The day of the wedding itself he made us all feel so at ease, so much so that we barely noticed his camera. That meant so much to us as we're not people who are very comfortable with the idea of being in front of a camera. He really let us get on with enjoying our day and documented it in a very natural way. When we got the finished product sent to us after the wedding, we were delighted! It's stunning work, laid out so professionally. Thanks so much to Alan and Bríd we couldn't be happier with our wedding video!

I can’t recommend Golden Moments Photography highly enough. The level of professionalism was fantastic. They were a dream to work with, both in the lead up and on the day. Alan listened to literally everything I wanted but also offered great advice. I didn’t think of it prior to the wedding but the photographer is the one person you will spend the entire day with (even more than you will with the groom!!) so it’s so important to chose wisely! Alan has such a friendly, calming manner about him. He was also very discreet in his work. Some of my friends said that they didn’t even notice him. This is exactly what I’d hoped for as my husband hates pictures. Also, nobody wants to spend their whole wedding day standing for photos, and he made the whole process of getting family and couple portraits done so quick and easy. He also captured moments of the day that I didn’t even notice were happening. I’ve since got my pictures and I’m absolutely blown away by the end result. They are memories to cherish forever. If you are thinking of booking them do it. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Golden Moments x

Golden Moments did a fantastic job on our wedding video. We did a lot of research into finding a videographer who could capture the day naturally. I really didn't want a video that looked too posed or a videographer that was constantly in our face, Golden Moments ticked both boxes. I loved that we could get the speeches over our highlight video as it made it personal. Job well done.

We last minute decided we wanted a videographer 3 weeks before our wedding date. Panicking we posted in the HGIM Facebook group and Golden Moments got back to us with availability. After watching some of their videos I knew they were perfect. Alan was an absolute gent. From the moment he entered the house with a tin of jelly babies he made us feel relaxed and most of the time we didn’t even notice that we were being filmed. He was amazing. We just received our highlight and full video and it everything, and more, than we had hoped it would be. We are thrilled we decided to spend the money on a videographer and I would advise all future brides to get one. Pictures are great but to have a video is something special. I would recommend Alan and Golden moments over and over again.

Amy, thank you so much. It was pleasure for us to capture your day for you. You are so right ....photographs capture your day beautifully but a video captures it differently. Your film will be a family treasure . Thanks for choosing us.

While researching photographers and videographers back when I was starting to plan my wedding I came across golden moments, Bríd and Alan were a dream to deal with, especially seen as a lot of our dealings were by email the booking process was so easy, they sent me on sample videos and I fell in love with their style it's almost like watching a movie!!I knew I had to have Alan at my wedding!! Fast forward to our wedding day and they did not disappoint, so friendly, professional and put everybody at ease from the minute he walked in!! Nothing was a hassle and they go above and beyond to help (I think Alan was trying to fix a hand steamer for the bridesmaid dresses at one point!!!) We have received a couple of shots and we are so excited to see the rest and video!!! I cannot recommend Golden Moments highly enough, amazing at what they do and genuinely nice people!!!

Alan and his team were very professional on the day. I felt they stayed in the background for most of the day and just let it happen naturally I loved that they were organised they sent me on a list before the wedding of what photos I wanted to get. This meant I got photos with everyone we wanted to. The photos are gorgeous.

We booked Alan for our wedding videography because of his exceptional reviews and having viewed some videos they were the style we wanted. Alan touched base with us a number of times before the big day and made sure he knew all the details and any personal touches we wanted captured. He was a very relaxed and calm presence on the day and got on so well with everyone. The final video is something we will always have to treasure. It captured the excitement and intimacy we both felt on the day yet Alan was never intrusive. He has a fantastic talent and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for wedding videography. Money extremely well spent!

I'm NOT a fan of having my picture taken at all - so agreeing to a wedding photographer AND videographer was a big step for me. But - Alan and Co were AMAZING. They were absolutely super. They never made it feel like we were being dragged away from things, instead they made sure we were still part of everything. There were amazing and had us each place bang on time. After we even commented how we never even noticed them in the church, they were that discreet, and people asked me afterwards how did we find someone so good. Our families and even the venue commented on how amazing they were. I would 110% recommend them and cannot say enough amazing things about the 3 of them - and to be honest if you don't go with them, you will regret it. So good were they that the day after the wedding my (now) wife woke up and panicked about getting ready to go for breakfast as Alan wasn't there to guide her! FYI - getting the videograper as well is worth it. You will not regret it! 5 stars is not enough to give these guys! Cannot recommend them enough - brilliant to deal with and highly recommend to help your day go smoothly. Such nice people and made us feel SO relaxed

Working with Alan & Brid was great- They are super professional and work incredibly hard to capture the special moments of your wedding. We chose Golden Moments as our Videographer and they were really helpful in tailoring a package suitable for our needs. Our wedding was at Faithlegg so we were able to meet with Alan to discuss the day beforehand and he shared his tips to help us get the best moments and understand how he would be working away in the background. Communication was excellent! We are so pleased with our wedding film! It was emotional to watch back but the footage has been edited with skill, care and attention to make it super personal. Alan is highly skilled and our relative working in the film industry commented that all the recording equipment was some of the best kit out there, and the film reflects this. Thank you again and we definitely recommend Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film to other couples out there!

To start this off I want to say a big thank you to Alan, Brid and their team for such an amazing day on June 15th 2019. Picking the right Photographer & Videographer for our wedding was really important to us so we did a lot of research into this. after finding Golden Moments and a deep dive into their photo & Video portfolio online, we decided they were the one and we are so glad we did. My husband would not be fond of being in front of a camera so this is something he was very nervous about. Of course on the day we barely noticed them around us apart from the odd time when they wanted us to do a special shot which all came out amazing. From the start of the day right through to the end, they were excellent and we couldn't be happier with how our photos and videos came out. (Make sure to get the photos with the sparklers as these are some of our favorites.) Will definitely be recommending them to anyone we know getting married in the future. Best Wishes, Mr & Mrs McDermott

Brid and Alan of golden moments were our wedding photographers and we received our photos a few days ago. We couldn't be happier with them. I was anxious about the photography because neither me or my husband are comfortable getting our photo taken. We tend to avoid it at all costs. From the moment we met brid and Alan they made us feel comfortable and gave us both the direction we needed the get the amazing shots we ended up with. We really had no idea what we were doing and brid and Alan were so patient with us. I have no hesitation in recommending golden moments to anyone looking for a photographer that will make you feel relaxed and comfortable and give you amazing photos that you will cherish forever.

Alan and Bríd were phenomenal to work with on our wedding day, having just received our photos we are blown away with both the quality and the precious moments that they managed to capture on the most special day of our lives. On what started a very rainy morning, Alan & Bríd arrived with cheery smiles and proceeded to calm and reassure a slightly stressed bride and they even brought the sunshine with them! All day they quietly captured shots that quite literally take my breath away when I look at them, the behind the scenes photos tell the story of the whole day and we’ll treasure the memories forever, thank you Alan & Bríd - you were brilliant.

From the moment Alan and Richard arrived, they fitted into our wedding as though they were guests. Alan’s gentle tone and kind nature put everyone at ease, even those who were not keen on having their photos taken. We received our photos and are still looking through, noticing something new each time. We could not be happier and cannot thank you enough for capturing those special moments of our day which we will cherish for years to come. On a personal note, I would like to thank you both for creating a very special and poignant moment for us both; I will never look at a setting sun in quite the same way. I had spent months searching through lists of photographers and videographers and I wish I had read a review early on, which told me not to look past Golden Moments. A thousand thank you’s from Siobhan & Daniel x

We took very seriously the choice of a photographer and for me it was even more important than my wedding dress. Choosing Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film was one of the best choice we made. Brid was absolutely lovely to deal with, she carefully listened to what we wanted for our day. The professionalism we saw was above any expectations, even before the wedding when Alan contacted us to organize that day and to be sure we got what we wanted. His attention to details and organization even before the wedding made me feel so relieved because we knew already that we were in good hands. Alan was so friendly and professional that he made us feel so at ease and relaxed that we actually enjoyed every single moment. Once having seen the pictures, we realized even more that his attention to details and skills were really outstanding. We barely realized they were there and we have received such amazing natural candid pictures, exactly what we wanted. All pictures really communicate sth of that day, reason why it is very difficult to choose the best ones. And the video, omg it really seems we are watching a movie, we can relive all the emotions of that day. It is priceless! One year of planning a single day…and receiving such wonderful memories which will last forever. We are extremely satisfied!!

Deborah and Francesco we absolutely loved capturing your wedding in Kilkea Castle. It really was the dream wedding. And to have two beautiful Italian families coming together at an Irish Castle wedding in glorious sunshine for an outdoor ceremony was an honour for us to be a small part of.

How Alan captured the day is just amazing and we will treasure these videos. We were particularly delighted with the 5 minute highlights video showing the best of what was such a special day for us. Alan put us at ease straightaway and his eye for detail and capturing the different small but special moments is top class. Along with that it was great fun throughout the day too! Thanks again for everything!

I would 100% recommend Alan. He was brilliant and I couldn't say enough good things about him. He did the videography at our wedding. Like a lot of couples we didn't think our budget would stretch to getting a videographer, we had decided not to get one but then after seeing a friends one we knew we would regret it if we didn't. I did a lot of research in relation to price and previous videos. I really liked Alan's style and then I saw examples which had a drone. He was the cheapest videographer that I could find that included a drone. Well to say we weren't disappointed would be an understatement!! Alan rang us about 2 weeks before the wedding to go through everything and check we were happy. From the minute we met him he was great, we barely noticed he was there on the day which is exactly what we wanted. Lots of our guests even commented that they barely noticed him. Even after watching the video back I had never realised that a camera was even present in certain places. Not only that but he is a very nice person and I hadn't realised how important that actually was until the morning as he was in reality a stranger that was part of our special day. He was such a gent from beginning to end. Then we got the finished product and we were delighted with it. We got a highlighted version of around 5 mins to share with our friends and then a longer version too to relive the whole day. The views he managed to get with his drone were something else! If your undecided about getting a videographer I would highly recommend it. While we love it now we know it will be even more important in years to come. With that in mind we would highly recommend choosing Alan in Golden Moments to capture your day! We can't thank him enough for our priceless moments that he captured!

Deirdre thank you so much for your 5 star review. I had such a great time in Castletroy filming your and Eoin's wedding. To see you laughing and chatting as you walked up the aisle with your dad was a fantastic experience for not only me but for everyone there. How Eoin managed to keep looking straight ahead until you arrived must be a superhuman feat in itself :) Long life and happiness to you both. Alan & Bríd.

It can be a very daunting experience trying to find good photographers on the lead up to your wedding. I had e-mailed a few that had been suggested to me but found them way too expensive and I had also contacted some I had researched myself but their response was very slow. As soon as I sent out a request to Golden Moments, Brid responded to me immediately and promptly replied to any queries I had. She met my fiancé and myself and went through all the choices we had to choose from and brought along wedding albums of different sizes and prices to show samples of their work. We found the price of our chosen package very reasonable and the option to pay in instalments up to the wedding date was a great help. Brid and Alan were very professional on the day and our guests commented countless times on how good they were. They were also very efficient in getting our photos edited and e-mailed to us, all within 72 hours. We would recommend Golden Moments to anyone looking for a professional photographer for any occasion.

Ah thank you Ann and Chris. What a wonderful family occasion your wedding was in Mullingar. Smiles all the way from all the guests and family, so lovely to see. All the best to you both. Alan and Brid.

Alan and brid are lovely to deal with very friendly and professional. Alan is amazing at his job gets great photos without being in your face. For someone who doesn't like getting their photograph taken I was quite nervous to see what photos would look like and was very nervous coming up to the wedding about the thoughts of posing for photos. I was delighted to see how natural the photos were and they have exceeded my expectations. I would 1000% recommend Alan to any future couples. And I am so happy that we chose golden moments for our wedding.

Karen, Thank you so much. You looked amazing in your photographs ...we can't understand why you don't like being photographed!

Absolutely delighted with our wedding video from Alan in Golden Moments. Right from the first dealings with Brid to saying goodbye to Alan on the night nothing was ever an issue and everything just went so smoothly. We really wanted someone who wasn’t too intrusive but got the little moments that we can look back on forever. So happy we decided to go with a videographer in the end. Something we will have forever.Alan is just a pleasure to deal with and we can 100% recommend to any couple thinking of booking.

We booked Alan & Brid two weeks before our wedding after being let down by another photographer we had booked, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise. From day one after a day of upset and tears both Brid and Alan were unbelievably friendly, professional and committed! Alan made us feel comfortable throughout and you could really see he takes great pride in his work. Today we received our sneak peak and wow they are amazing, so in love with our photos and cannot wait to see the rest, will definitely be worth the wait. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend golden moments to anyone for any occasion! Above and beyond what we expected and we will be forever grateful to both Brid and Alan for saving our day

We had the pleasure of dealing with Alan Golden Photography and his Videograpger Paul. What a wonderful service,from the minute Alan we knew that this was going to be magical,his fine art to detail,the samples he provided and his easy going manner,but yet so professional. On our wedding day we didn't even know himself or Paul were going about there business, made us feel so relaxed and low and behold the pictures and the video are flawless. Excellent work. Great offers on his packages,we went with the photos and video,memories for a life time. Thank you Alan, Bríd and Paul.

Married 1 month to the date and we got our fab photographs .. honestly could not recommend Golden Moments photography enough. From day 1 we were left at ease with such professionalism and expertise! They went above and beyond for us and honestly we could not have asked for better! Living abroad meant picking the right vendors was going to be crucial in ensuring a smooth transition throughout the day! They even kindly brought their camera out to the hospital where we were visiting my partners nan who is very dear to us all! That incredible gesture to videotape that moment really made our day as she is very special to us and to have that moment forever more you just cannot put a price tag on that!
Response from Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film
Karen & Ian thank you both so much for your kind words. To organise such a large wedding from abroad and to have it work so well is a testament to your hard work and family support. Well done all! We were honoured to play a small part. To see a couple smiling from early morning to late at night on their wedding day is a wonderful experience for any photographer / videographer and we are so happy that was us on August 26th.

For our very DIY wedding, our photographer was the one aspect we took very seriously, and we considered our choices very carefully. What we saw on the website and in the brochure was exactly the standard of excellence we got - we could not have asked for anyone better! Alan was professional, obliging, helpful and friendly from the first phone call, through our practice photoshoot (which he travelled for, without complaint), through the entire wedding day, and throughout all our interactions with him. Alan, unasked, went above and beyond taking on the role of our unofficial timekeeper on the day, keeping things moving along and keeping an eye on the weather so that we got all the photos we wanted, and so much more. As promised, he completely blended into the background so that we mostly forgot he was there, making it truly amazing when we saw the photos of how many special moments he captured. Alan didn’t miss a thing, and we are so grateful that he managed to think of everything - from taking it upon himself to seek out the wedding dress, suit and rings to get some fantastic pictures while all the madness went on with preparations, to documenting the beautiful grounds and all the homemade decorations, to chatting with guests and capturing even the most camera-shy in his natural, documentary-style that we love. We particularly loved the action shots of the first dance. The digital photos were ready for us within days, meaning we could share them with our families before we flew back to London. We have absolutely nothing but praise for Alan and would recommend him to anyone and everyone, for any occasion. Incidentally, he also pretty much saved the day by figuring out our sound problem - what a hero!
Response from Golden Moments Wedding Photography & Film
Claire &! Thank you for the very kind words. We had a great day and I was so happy for you both. It's not easy organising a DIY wedding from London but if you write a book on how you did it, it will be a best-seller! I'm certainly looking forward to creating your wedding album over the next couple of months. All the best. Alan. x

We would highly recommend Golden moments. We booked Alan last minute to do our wedding videography and we are so glad now that we did. Alan was so brilliant from start to finish, he was so professional and did a better video than we could have ever imagined. His wife Brid was really kind and helpful also, their attention to detail was superb. We really couldnt fault them.. Our families and friends are still talking about how relaxed and easy going they were when providing the service. Alan made us feel so comfortable throughout the day, his years of wedding photography experience shines through on the day. Do not hesitate to book golden moments they are excellent.

Throughout the process from "showcasing" his work, and getting a feel for us and the day we were planning, to presenting us with a beautiful album, Alan and Brid were calmly and efficiently working away to create an everlasting record of the day. Many excellent images were captured, but their contribution felt like more than just stunning photographs. We would have no hesitation recommending Golden Moments Photography.

From my heart, I can give nothing less than 5 stars across the board to Golden Moments. I only decided to get a video less than two weeks before our wedding, and we were so lucky to have gotten in contact with Brid and Alan. We had the most prompt and friendly communication with Brid throughout the process, and on the day Alan and Peter were lovely to work with, and to be honest we didn't even realise they were there for most of the day! We also received a very very reasonable and competitive price, especially when you consider the very high quality of video and service we received. The drone footage we saw was breathtaking, and considering how little we noticed the videographers on the day, the amount of really special moments they captured was amazing, and our highlights video brought me (and many of our family and friends) to tears of happiness. I would advise anyone who is unsure about a video to get one if you can fit it into your budget, looking back now I am so so so glad to have our memories on video- and I would recommend Golden Moments 100%, the whole experience we had with them was just fantastic!
