Dylan!

Blown away!…
Your photos really captured the essence of how we all felt and everyone who has viewed them has said the same. There was so much love all around us on the day of the wedding and you worked really hard at trying to include everyone in our special moments – thank you for that!

Thank you for all those moments, some that we didn’t even notice, that you have frozen in time for us to look at forever – for that we can’t thank you enough.

Larchfield Estate, Co Down


Culloden Resort Wedding
Dear Dylan and Caroline

We can’t believe a whole year has passed since our wedding day! It’s so hard to articulate how incredibly grateful we are, not only for your artistic genius in your wonderful pictures, but also for all your support and advice making everything so stress free. Much more than a photographer!

There’s no doubt that you are the most talented photographer ever and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our cherished memories in such an exceptional way.

Love and best wishes

Culloden Resort and Spa, County Down


Ballymagarvey Village Wedding
Dear Dylan

I just wanted to drop you a note about our amazing wedding photos – I can’t stop looking at them and each time I do, I see something different in them!  It was such a lovely surprise to get a first look at them when we were on honeymoon.

I really think you captured the day so well and it has really eased the post-wedding/honeymoon blues.  On a personal note, I wanted to thank you for the utterly pain-free way you took all the shots, so different to the usual posed pictures that leave everyone bored stiff with the whole process and with wooden expressions.  I just love the natural smiles and happy expressions of all my family!

With very best wishes

Majella and Noel
Ballymagarvey Village, Co Meath

Hi Dylan!!

We just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how grateful we are to you for photographing our day in the way that you did.

I have to say that looking at your photographs is like being in a time-machine magically transporting us back to every moment – to all the things that made it our best day ever, and to all the things that we missed but that you’ve forever captured.

Thank you so much.

Most of all I love how natural they all are – exactly what we wanted – cannot recommend you enough!

Be in touch and thanks again

Evening celebrations at Narrow Water Castle wedding reception
Hi Dylan

The pictures look amazing, we love them! We kept saying to each other, “”Did you see Dylan taking photos? Do you think he got one of this, one of that?”” But you obviously were – but quietly, in the background, like some kind of photography ninja!

You made our day really special and we can’t say thank you enough, although we’ll try!

Narrowwater Castle, Co Down


Evening dancing at Dunadry Hotel Wedding reception
Oh my goodness, I am speechless. We both are. They are more than we could ever have imagined. Cried (happy tears) from beginning to end. The photos have taken our breath away, so many moments captured in time forever.

So many of my family have raved about you since the wedding, how down to earth, relaxed and friendly you were… Both sets of parents have been to their fair share of weddings and said they never met a photographer like you. Just thought I’d tell you because the photo’s are one thing but it was also great to share the day with you… Even though you were hiding away capturing all the pictures 🙂 and omg the one of clara opening her bracelet!!!! You have such a gift Dylan x

Our gratitude is endless
Thank you so much.
All our love

Hi Dylan

What can we say but wow! The images are amazing and I well up every time I see the pictures of my dad and I at the top of the aisle and I have watched it at least twenty times now. It tells the story of the day perfectly.

You are exceptionally good at what you do and many thanks from Allan and I. He’s at the stone roses gig tonight and I am sitting happily watching our slideshow again reliving the day.

Bride arrives for her wedding ceremony on Lissanoure Estate
Hi Dylan

I’d like to thank you again for taking such lovely photos of our special day. Sadly my Dad passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning after a short but hard fought battle against cancer.

The photos you took of my Dad last October will help me to remember my Dad as he always was, you really captured my Dad’s spirit and it’s so nice to look back and see him smiling away; thank you so much for the everlasting memories.

Galgorm Wedding Reception in the Great Hall, 2011
Hi Dylan,

The photographs are amazing! So pleased with them. I have watched the slideshow at least a dozen times and still get emotional!

Your photos bring back so many wonderful memories of the day and I wasn’t even aware you were there!! Many people commented on how nice it was that Colin and I were at our drinks reception as at so many weddings the bride and groom go off for a few hours to have photos taken.

Thanks so much.

Laura and Colin Robertson,
Galgorm Resort, Co Antrim

Just a quick note to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thank you, Dylan, for being such a lovely part of our big day on 12th December. You made us feel so relaxed and let us be ourselves and all our guests commented on how smiley and friendly you were.

Lots of love
Zoe and Stephen

Dylan
Wow wow wow! These are amazing! We are thrilled with them – have sat down to look at them together this morning and cried our eyes out (in a good way!!). You have really captured the mood of the day so well – I love all the happy faces and to see all the little stories going on in the background that would otherwise have been lost to us in the craziness of the day.

Thank you so much!

Ps – this was my sister Hannah’s reaction:

‘Your photo slideshow is amazing!!!! I was so mesmerised by it I couldn’t take my eyes off them! They’re breathtaking! You look so beautiful in them – there are so many ones in the slideshow that I  wanted to pause and go back to so I’ll have to watch it again tonight xxx’

The pictures which you shot of her waiting for me at the church and signing the register are really precious to us so thanks for doing it in such a beautiful way.

Thank you for your photographs. We absolutely love them. They are all gorgeous and they’ve captured so much of the love and fun from our day.

Bride departs Armagh Cathedral for wedding reception
Hi Dylan,

Lucy and I sat down last night over dinner to look through them together: what a joy to relive the day like that! Everyone we’ve shown the photos to so far has marveled at them – you even managed to make me look dapper!!

One of my good friends sent me an email yesterday: “My word, there are some excellent photos in there! He was a brilliant photographer.” The photographs really are wonderful and really capture the essence of the day.

Thanks again. All our best

Will & Lucy,

Lissanoure Castle wedding at night time
Hi Dylan

We’ve spent every spare minute looking at our photographs. The way you’ve captured the light, colour, movement and emotion in each of the pictures is just incredible. It’s hard to explain but it’s like each picture comes to life when you look at it.

We’re noticing things that we didn’t see on the day and we are having so much fun reliving our day! Thanks again

Hi Dylan

Thank-you so much for being part of our big day!  I know my friends and family really took a shine to you!  It was like having another guest and everyone has been commenting on how well you blended in.  James is only now realising you were capturing his reflection when he thought you were snapping other people.

I love the angles and how you’ve managed to capture so many of our family and friends in one picture, even though at first glance they might not be that obvious!

Thank you so much – we are delighted!

I am hooked by the wedding photos!! The number of people that have complimented the photos has been lovely, albeit unsurprising. I have lost count of the number of people saying our photos are the best that they have ever seen, and frankly I have to agree.

Anyway, the Thames beckons. I just wanted to acknowledge how impressed and excited we are to have the photos. Oh, and delighted at how quick the photos took to get together!!! Speak soon

Hi Dylan

We just wanted to take a moment out of honeymooning to thank you. The photos are amazing. Already friends and family have been in touch & there is a lot of talk about ‘beautiful moments’. You captured the feel of the museum and how special it was as a wedding venue. thanks so much, Oh – I saw this quote & thought of you:

‘Photography is, for me, a spontaneous impulse coming
from an ever attentive eye which captures the moment
and its eternity. -Henri Cartier-Bresson’
