Mark Barnes Wedding Photographer PPANI


A love for photography led to my dream career as a wedding photographer.

Hi, I’m Mark Barnes. Multi-award winning wedding photographer with over 18 years of experience.

I’ve captured over 750 weddings across the UK, Ireland, and rest of the globe and wouldn’t change my career for the world.

Since photographing my first wedding at 14 years old. I’ve grown to guide each bride and groom through an exceptional experience. I’m proud to say that couples I’ve met and photographed are now lifelong friends.

Documenting your wedding is a huge privilege for me and one that I never take lightly. I take you from initial chats, through to romantic and family shots, and beyond - presenting your amazing photographs in whichever format you choose – all with the personal touch that you need.

Cherished Photographs

I treat every wedding as if it is my first. No awards that I’ve won have ever come close to the tears that my couple shed when they see their photographs for the first time.

As a father to two amazing young girls, I build a connection with families and give you the best possible service that I can.

Check out some of my featured weddings, or get in touch with me and let's chat more.


I currently serve as President of the Professional Photographers Association of Northern Ireland (PPANI). Established in 1966, PPANI is Northern Ireland's longest professional photography body, creating an incredible environment with networking opportunities across Northern Ireland. I can't recommend it enough to any upcoming or fellow professionals.
