Bathroom Baskets for your Wedding Venue

If you are in the process of planning your wedding day there are  certain things that  you will like to know, and  there are  many things that you will need to know.
In my role as a  wedding videographer I am lucky to attend my fair share of weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford  and many other counties. From speaking to couples all over the length and breath of Ireland  I have picked up lots of tips about wedding planning.

Is your  wedding day  all about you ?  broadly speaking the answer is yes but if you’ve been a guest at a wedding you’ll realize  the importance  of looking after your wedding guests and making it a memorable day for them also.
You’ve invited all your friends and relations  to be part of the most important  day of your life, so you want to make sure they have a day to remember also.  Here is one way  of making your guests happy on your big day

Wedding Bathroom Basket

Bathroom Baskets for your Wedding Venue – what to include :

Over the past ten years there has without doubt, been an increased focus on guests requirements when planning for the big day. We now rarely attend any weddings that do not cater for their guests with little extras that make the day so much more comfortable for all attending. With this in mind we have compiled a checklist of little extras you can put together for your family and friends. These hampers can be left in the gents and ladies bathrooms, and should be checked on by venue staff throughout the night to make sure stocks are replenished as needed.

Ladies Bathroom Basket for your Wedding

In the ladies bathroom basket or hamper, there should be a whole range of possibilities for your guests to choose from. In this article we are going to list some of the more popular options and advise on some little extras that you won’t see anywhere else.

Toiletries
On a day when all the ladies in your company will want to be looking their very best, toiletries are a must-have at all times of the day. Your bathroom basket should include some if not all of the following:

Wet wipes
Dry shampoo
Toothpaste and disposable toothbrushes
Perfume
Deodorant
Cotton buds
Tissues
Feminine products

Hair care products

Whilst many women will have had their hair done professionally that morning, it is important to supply some backup products for later on in the festivities when the original hairstyles may be starting to wane.

Hair brushes / combs
Hair Spray
Bobby pins
Hair ties
Helpful Extras
Your female guests will truly appreciate any extras you include that make them feel comfortable at all hours of the day or night. Check out our list below of thoughtful extras that will have your guests singing your praises.

Flip-flops or slippers
Plasters
Party Feet
Clear nail varnish
Vaseline
Lint rollers
Safety pins
Mints
Scissors
Product samples to take away

For the Men

Most of the products listed above can also be included in the bathroom baskets you provide for the gents toilets. Make sure you include these extras to ensure the men are just as well looked after as the women throughout your celebrations.

Plasters
Safety Pins
Deodorant
Cologne
Hair gel / wax
Lint Brush
Mouthwash
Men’s flip-flops

If you are having a child-free wedding reception you can also include some more risqué items such as Rennies, aspirin or mini liquors. For those of you who will have children attending the venue, please make sure you omit anything that can be harmful to or inappropriate for a child from your wedding baskets. Little hands are happy to pick up anything that isn’t nailed down, so this should be an important consideration when planning your baskets.

Nicola and John’s Wedding Story

The story begins with the bridal preps at Nicola’s house situated on Old Golf Links Road in Kilkenny, when I arrived the preparations were in full swing. The very talented Ross Costigan was the photographer he was already there when I arrived, I love working with Ross its fair to say that some of my best films were shot while working  with him, he has an amazing talent for wedding photography. Nicola and John’s wedding video  is  a typical no nonsense  production, it features lots of natural shots which were discreetly recorded  while adapting  a hands off approach.

Kilkenny Bride and Groom

St. John’s Church Kilkenny 200th anniversary

St. John’s Church   celebrated  its 200th anniversary on My 12th 2017 the Bishop of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory, the Right Rev Michael Burrows conducted the the historic ceremony.
Nicola and John have now entered the history records of St. Johns Church just like scores of other Kilkenny couples dating back 200 years, Fr. Sean O’ Connor was the wedding celebrant  he is a lovely guy to work with just so nice and pleasant, putting a slightly nervous Bride and Groom at ease.

Rothe House Museum and Gardens

Situated in the centre of Kilkenny Rothe House and Garden is the ideal stopp off location for a wedding photo shoot,  it was built between 1594 and 1610 and  was the home of the renowned merchant, landowner and Mayor of Kilkenny City, John Rothe Fitz Piers.
Nicola and John enjoyed some time away  from their busy day to relax with the bridal party and get the photo shoot over and done with, the ever beautiful surroundings of Rothe House provided an interesting backdrop for their  wedding film.

Any couple who have had their wedding reception in Langtons will comment on the  absolute Top Class performance by Sean and the staff. The decoration of the room itself is always superbly and tastefully  crafted, everything about langtons spells a quality wedding reception location.
Nicola and John decided to have the speeches before the meal, getting them out of the way allowed the speakers lots of time to enjoy a tasty wedding dinner.

Hiring a Wedding Videographer in Tipperary

Tipperary is without doubt one of the most scenic locations in Ireland to get married and we always enjoy filming wedding videos there at all times of the year. In Tipperary, we find that Brides and Grooms tend to opt for wedding videos that feature not just the ceremony itself but also the reception, first dance and the early part of the celebrations. Here at Drangan Video we will be happy to put together a tailored package just for you, incorporating your wishes, style and budget.

So what do you get when you hire Drangan Video for your Tipperary Wedding?

Here at Drangan Video we offer a range of styles and solutions to suit every taste and every budget.

Planning an After Wedding Party

More and more we are asked to provide Brides and Grooms with a quote for not just one day of filming but two, Ireland has embraced the ‘after wedding party’ and it looks like it’s here to stay!

So why should you consider a get together the night or day after your wedding?

It is with increasing regularity that we hear Brides and Grooms regret that they didn’t get enough time to spend with their guests on the big day and this is where the ‘after wedding party’ really comes into it’s own. On the day of your wedding you will no doubt do your best to mingle with everyone in the room, but it goes without saying that you will be very much in demand and it’s hard to spend time with everyone. Planning a get together for the day after makes for a much more relaxed affair and will give you the chance to thank each and every one of your guests in a more informal setting.

An After Wedding Party

So where should I have my After Wedding Party

There are a host of options open to you for your after wedding party and the best thing is you get to relax and enjoy it without having to worry about too much detailed planning.

• Many venues will offer you a second night of celebrations at a reduced rate, so it’s well worth bringing this up at the price negotiation stage. Remember, a second night of celebrating means quite a bit of profit for the establishment and it’s well worth haggling for a reduced rate.
• You could also consider hosting a get together in a local bar that you frequent as a couple on a regular basis. This informal setting will ensure both you and your guests are relaxed and can come and go at a time that suits everyone.
• A local restaurant is a great idea if you would like to thank your guests and family by treating them to an informal meal. Most small restaurants will allow you to bring your own wine and may be happy to waive any corkage fees in return for a large group booking. A great excuse to use up the last of the wine from the wedding day!
• If you are lucky enough to get married during the summer months and fancy taking your chances with the Irish weather, then you could organise a BBQ in your own home or in the grounds of a local club or hotel garden. Make sure there’s an indoor area though to cover all weather possibilities or consider hiring a marquee for the night.

Wedding Party Celebrations

For any brides or grooms who would like a video for both the wedding day and the after wedding party, we would love to hear from you. We can travel anywhere in the country and will be happy to stay overnight so we can capture the perfect video on both days. Please feel free to give Eamon a call here at Drangan Video  and he will provide you with an all-inclusive quote.

Autumn Wedding In Kilkenny

October 1st 2016 was a beautiful warm sunny day in Kilkenny, one wedding guest described the beautiful spell of weather as an Indian summer.
I am delighted to be finally getting around to sharing the following  highlights from Galia and Emmet’s wedding video

Video coverage of the day began at Galia’s parents house  situated in Cellarstown, Kilkenny it is only a ten minute drive from Kilkenny city.
My style of  video recording is totally laid back and easygoing, many Kilkenny brides have commented on my  unobtrusive and hands off approach to capturing their special day, I received a nice message from Galia and Emmet saying that they are delighted with their wedding video and barely noticed the camera during the day.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. John’s Church which is situated near McDonagh Junction and Kilkenny, it is a beautiful old church with gorgeous architecture and stunning design. It has huge  ceilings and a purely peaceful, captivating beauty!  I Would recommend stopping off seeing this if you are in Kilkenny.

Wedding in Kilkenny

After the ceremony we went back to Galia’s house for the photo shoot, the house and gardens were in top class condition which was testament to weeks of hard work by a very proud Mum and Dad.

Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel

Galia and Emmet enjoyed a fab wedding reception in the Kilkenny ­Ormonde Hotel which is Kilkenny’s number one 4 star city centre wedding venue. It is located within walking distance of  Kilkenny Castle and Medieval Rothe House.
The staff are always friendly and helpful and their efficent attention to detail is one of the many positive  hallmarks The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel.
