Well, what can I say - I literally cannot say enough about this man and his photographic talent!!! We booked Ronan (no body else came anywhere close in our preferences) after I met him at a friends wedding in July 2016. At that point, I believe he had already done photography for that grooms cousins wedding and possibly a friend/cousin before that. He was also booked for the grooms brothers wedding a few years later if I remember correctly. We viewed our friends wedding album some time after we got engaged and I knew there was no research to be done on wedding photographers - we were going with Ronan! As we were faced with plenty of COVID restrictions in the lead up to the wedding last year, our first meeting with Ronan took place over Zoom - he couldnt have made us feel more comfortable and we had plenty of chats and laughs and got to know us both a bit better and got a feel for what we were looking for on the day. On the day, he arrived at my parents house in good time and settled in to quietly wandering around the house, capturing the most amazing photos of parts of the house and different moments that I'd never have even dreamed of! Ronan has the ideal personality for his job and clicks with everyone that's around on the morning of the wedding. Having taken a few photos at my parents house, he drove up to our house where my now husband was with his family and Best Man and took some more amazing photos here before returning to my parents house for me leaving for the venue. Combined with the super organisation of our hairstylist Adrienne (Powder Room Girls) and our makeup artist (Rhona Cullinan), Ronan helped to keep us all on schedule and on our toes for the lead up to the departure time for the wedding venue. We booked Ronan's longer day package, to include the Shot in the Dark photo - I cannot tell you how highly I rate this. I'd seen so many amazing shots in his portfolio and in magazines, for which he's won awards and just had to have him do a photo of us like this! He did NOT disappoint. I'll never forget the fun, laughs and chats we had with Ronan on the wedding day, both during the morning in my parents house and throughout the day at the wedding venue! He is there and taking so many amazing photos, yet you barely even realise he's around. Such a quiet, gentleman with amazing talent!! I was looking to do a slideshow of photos of both my husband and I as babies, up through childhood and towards our wedding date, as a surprise for my husband on the day. I'd mentioned this to Ronan and asked him if he could recommend software I could use or ways in which I could organise it. He offered to quickly throw the photos I'd spent weeks organising together with music for me and as we had him booked for the longer day package, he connected it up to the projector screen with his laptop. OMG, the results were so much better than I ever could have imagined or done myself - the selection of photos he'd taken that morning and at different points in the day, that he'd added in at the end, were the icing on the cake! The whole slideshow and some of the songs still bring tears to my eyes! Such a lovely memory to have to look back on from our wedding day. The morning after our wedding day, we woke in the Bridal Suite to a message from Ronan with a sneak peak of some of our wedding photos, including the Shot in the Dark photo - it was amazing, still so in love with it!!! We went away on a Minimoon only a few days later and on arrival in our first hotel, I received an email from Ronan with a link to a further sneak peak of some of our photos from the day - perfect start to our Minimoon! If you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, I would highly recommend that you look no further than Ronan Palliser - the man's a legend and you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
