Wedding Videographer Dublin Ireland

There are no second takes on your wedding day. Hiring an experienced and professional wedding videographer to capture the most important day of your lives together is absolutely essential.

For more than a decade now, Richard Finlay has been one of Ireland’s most sought-after full-time wedding videographers, the favorite choice of celebrities and well known personalities at home and abroad, covering weddings from big to small and everything in between.

As an internationally recognized, multi-award-winning wedding videographer, Richard realizes how much preparation and planning goes into a wedding day, and that when the big day finally comes, only the best will do.

When Richard first started creating wedding video films in 2005 at the age of just 21, the Irish market was saturated with old school 80s style “wedding videos”.  For such a long time, “wedding videos” had a terrible reputation among the general public.  Over the past decade public opinion has shifted to a more favorable view, in large part due to the rising standards of talented and dedicated wedding videographers who are, in reality, creating cinematic wedding video films.  Richard was a pioneer of the modern cinematic wedding video film in Ireland at a time when the market needed it the most.

Having lost his beloved wife Carla to cancer at the age of just 32, Richard knows first hand how important it is to be able to have a great wedding video full of amazing memories to cherish forever.  Many couples have told Richard throughout the years that their wedding video was actually the best money they spent on their wedding.

Richard will capture all of the flavors and emotions of your big day in an elegant, unobtrusive and cinematic style. His promise to you is that you, your loved ones and guests will hardly know he’s there.

Couples are often stunned by how Richard managed to capture the bigger picture, the essence of their wedding day, and all of the smaller details – the things that they didn’t see happening on the day themselves.

The latest HD broadcast-quality camera and audio equipment is used. Your wedding video film is then professionally edited by Richard, careful to catch all of the intricate details that make up your wedding day.

Your “wedding video” will be a long-lasting, treasured family heirloom for as long as you both live…and for generations to come…

TESTIMONIALS

Richard Finlay gets my Academy Award. He’s the best — this year or any year.

Monte Hellman Legendary Film Director and Executive Producer of Reservoir Dogs

TESTIMONIALS

Could never conceive of getting married but, if I had to, there is nobody I’d want to film it more than Richard Finlay. Smart, insightful and the most erudite voyeur you could ever want, Finlay somehow makes the madness of marriages into mini masterpieces. He’s easy on the eye too so you might want him to stick around for the private filming later too.

Both the quality of filming and editing are fantastic, and you really captured the flavour of the day for us. We both reckon it was the best money we spent on the wedding.

TESTIMONIALS

I was so nervous thinking about the DVD as I hate video cameras and stuff like that but after watching it, i have to say it was the best money we spent. I could sit and watch it over and over again.

TESTIMONIALS

I cant tell you enough how happy I am with the video of our wedding we received from Richard. It was way beyond what I had ever expected from the DVD.

Asha & John Clontarf Castle, Dublin

TESTIMONIALS

Considering i wasn’t going to have a video i’m so glad my friends talked me into it. Just love the way you captured the days best bits without intruding on people, and kept the video short and to the point.

Fiona & Liam Flood Killashee House Hotel, Kildare

TESTIMONIALS

We were blown away by your high standard of professionalism. In fact most of the time we didn’t realize you were there and you made us and our guests feel so much at ease on the day…

Yvonne & Declan The Village at Lyons, Kildare

TESTIMONIALS

You were a true professional on the day and we honestly didn’t notice you at all during the day. Everybody said how discreet you were and how comfortable you made people feel…

Sarah Ann & Eamon Mulqueen Luttrellstown Castle, Dublin

TESTIMONIALS

On the actual day, I was pleasantly surprised not to notice the camera at all really. Not having done this before we were weary that there would be lights and cables and mikes and such like but I am delighted to say it couldn’t have been further from that idea. Thanks again for capturing our day so well and so completely – I would highly recommend you to others as it is definitely one wedding bill that was worth every last penny – you just can’t buy those memories.

Orla & Paul Sheedy Carton House, Kildare

TESTIMONIALS

Photographs are lovely but they just don’t capture the day the way the video does. Richard just seemed to get all the special little things in the day that we remembered but don’t have photographs of and he managed to even add a few suprises to our video which we loved.

Niamh & Shane Teskey Ballybeg House, Wicklow

TESTIMONIALS

Wow absolutely FANTASTIC. Thanks so much. Incredible talent!

TESTIMONIALS

I have to say on the day I was like where is the video guy. Then we saw the DVD and my God, I was totally blown away with what he captured!! He captured EVERYTHING!! I seriously couldn’t recommend him enough!!! He was so discreet!!!

TESTIMONIALS

I’m not often stuck for words but you’ve succeeded in making that happen! The highlights footage is exactly what I dreamed it would be! Thank you for putting so much love and attention into the details.
