A pretty good wedding photographer, I think.

I won the Wedding Photographer of the Year award and the Wedding Supplier of the Year award. I’m Irish by residence, Polish by accident of birth, and a husband by choice (mainly hers, of course!). I’m also the father of two by fortunate chance! I’m happy-go-lucky and I smile a lot (though I get serious when I’ve got my eyes stuck to the camera).

Thanks to a long career, having worked with literally hundreds of Irish couples-to-be on the biggest days of their lives, it’s safe to say that I’ve learned a thing or two about what it takes to organise the perfect wedding…

And so I wrote a Wedding Guidebook!

With Daniel’s Wedding Guide, I’ve gathered years of priceless information together all in one place – from the things I’ve learned through personal experience and the invaluable tips from the industry experts, to the near-disasters I’ve experienced along the way – all to help make planning your own wedding a piece of cake (pun intended).

Do you want your wedding day to feel like the happiest day of your life? That’s what I want for you, too. And I’ll do whatever I can to make your wedding day a fairy-tale. Once upon a time, you bought my book, then you hired me…..and we all lived happily ever after.
