“Mark is the most incredible photographer. Aside from your partner, your photographer is the person you will spend most of your wedding day with. Mark was fun, prepared, professional and slipped into the background when the shenanigans began! Our photos were so spectacular that they are now used for marketing weddings in Clontarf Castle Dublin. Many of our friends and family booked Mark having seen him in action on our big day. We will cherish our photos forever.”

“We had the pleasure of Mark being our photographer for our wedding; we cannot express how thrilled we are with the results. His attention to detail, creativity, and ability to capture the genuine emotions of the day truly exceeded our expectations. From the pre-wedding shots, to the ceremony and reception, every moment was beautifully documented. Mark has a remarkable talent for making you feel he's not imposing on your special moments, he fades into the background and let's you enjoy the day while capturing each moment for you to cherish. His professionalism, promptness and flexibility made the entire process so enjoyable, not an easy task during COVID. If you're seeking a wedding photographer who not only delivers stunning photographs but also adds a positive and stress-free dynamic to your special day, Mark Coombes is the perfect choice. We are immensely grateful for the memories that were captured on the day.”

“Where do I start because Mark was such a pleasure to deal with from the first day we met him, he was just so helpful and nothing was a bother to him. He is just so creative and he captured the most amazing photographs of our wedding day. He went above and beyond throughout the day and night to make our wedding day extra special and we will be forever grateful to him for all he done. We have the most amazing photos to treasure for the rest of our lives. We would highly recommend Mark as he is amazing at what he does.. His photos help us relive the day all over again.”

Michelle Hanrahan & Martin O’Regan27th August 2023

“From the minute we reached out to Mark back in the summer of 2018, he was just fabulous to deal with. We were due to get married in August 2020 but due to COVID we had a few reschedules; throughout this process, Mark was patient, understanding and helped with providing available dates at each request. We live in Canada, but Mark was always quick to reply and very communicative right up to after our wedding date.On the day itself, Mark was fantastic – he is the ultimate professional and his work speaks for itself! He also kept us relaxed and comfortable throughout the day, and we just loved the natural element of his work. It’s been nearly two years since our wedding, and we still look back on the photos! Mark is just a total gent, and we are so grateful for all he did for us. We would highly recommend Mark to any couple looking for a wedding photographer – everything was faultless from start to finish! Thank you again Mark!”

“The photographer was the one wedding supplier that I really wanted to be top quality and Mark did not disappoint. He gave up so much of his time before the big day and we got to discuss our ideas with him and he gave us such good advice in these meetings. By the end of that process we had a clear plan for the day. On the day too Mark was just sensational. He captured so many special moments with family and friends and had such novel ideas for photos of Michael and I. The photos didn’t feel staged and everything was done with a smile and a joke. The photo album, which we received shortly after the wedding, is something I treasure and love looking at it seeing some of the gorgeous pictures and memories Mark captured. I cannot praise Mark enough. A true professional who puts the couple at the heart of his work.”

Niamh O’Meara & Michael Rea9th April 2022

“Mark exceeded our expectations and the photos of our wedding were beyond stunning! We couldn’t be happier we chose Mark to photograph our special day. From the initial emails and subsequent meeting to our wedding album everything was perfect and professional. All our guests commented just how good Mark was from the first photos getting ready early in the morning, to the last taken on the dance floor late at night! We have since had a family photography session with our daughter when back visiting West Cork this summer and again, Mark goes above and beyond to get the 'perfect shot'. I couldn't recommend him enough, he's a fantastic photographer, an absolute gentleman and completely puts you at ease on your big day!”

Louise O’Mahony & Leo McGee23trd September 2017

“We got married at Barnabrow House and we trusted Mark to capture all the special moments from our day - and thank God we did!!!! Mark is firstly an absolute gentleman. He is great craic, yet a true perfectionist. Both of our families joked afterwards that Mark must have been exhausted after the wedding because he was literally everywhere - running from A to B. Our album of photos are absolutely incredible and his running from A to B is evidenced in how he managed to capture so many scenes. Our photos are exactly what we asked for - natural, nothing too staged, some family shots, and all the fun was captured too. We had a videographer on our wedding day too, and Mark and the other vendor worked like the A team! They had never met before, but how they complimented each others work was incredible. Mark is such a talent and so adaptable!
If you've read this far - I think you get the jist..... Mark Coombes is the best in the business. We wouldn't change a single thing!!!! Always grateful - Laura and Dave xxx”

Laura Nolan & David Leahy28th April 2022

“Mark was the stand out supplier for our wedding! His experience was so helpful in planning our day! From when Mark arrived in the morning he joined in with the fun and the photos were just amazing! He even spotted a rainbow and got us straight out for a photo which has to be the number one photo of the day! We could not recommend Mark enough!
We received our sample photos within a week of our wedding and were delighted with the quick turnaround, and the quality of the pictures.”

Ellen Lynch & Cathal O’Flaherty1st October 2021

“Mark was a consummate professional and enhanced our wedding immensely from the preparations to the day itself. For a couple who don’t necessarily like photographs Mark had a great knack of keeping things casual and relaxed and allowed us to feel at ease throughout. He mostly blended into the background but when he was interacting with us, the bridal party and our families he was great craic and really added to the day. On a practical level, he also helped us plan out a rough timeline for the day which made booking appointment times, vendors etc much easier. Most important of all, the finished product, the photos themselves were gorgeous and we have stunning memories of our wedding day forever”

Nicola Crowley & Olan Hayes3rd June 2023
