Thanks for dropping by and opening my latest wedding  news blog,  if you are from Kilkenny  and planning on  hiring a wedding videographer to record your big day, please keep reading.
Today I am proud to sharing  the following video highlights from the wedding of Martina and Darren  who  tied the knot in St. Canice’s Church, they enjoyed a fab wedding reception in Hotel Kilkenny.

Martina and Darren contacted back in 2015 with a view to having their special day filmed, their wedding was still two years away but they had made a list of wedding suppliers that they wanted to work with, so they were taking no chances on availability.
Here at Drangan Video in Kilkenny we are noticing a changing trend regarding our wedding bookings, couples  are getting engaged then straight away are in to full steam ahead wedding planning, just yesterday we took three bookings for wedding videos in 2020 it seems so far away, I feel very honored that those couples are so impressed by my work  by having Drangan Video on their favorite list of wedding suppliers.

The video coverage of Martina and Darren’s big day began with the ever popular bridal preps which took place in Hotel Kilkenny just a few minutes form the church.  John Delaney was on duty as the official wedding photographer for the day, John and myself  work very well together some of my best wedding films were shot with John, he has a lovey way abut him keeping everyone so  relaxed and smiling.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. Canice’s  Church Fr. Kieran O’ Shea conducted a lovely ceremony his relaxed manner helped  our Bride and Groom  to actually enjoy the ceremony without taking what is often described as a  daunting  task too  seriously.

After the ceremony  our next location was the Castle Park Kilkenny, it is the ideal location for a wedding video shoot, the grounds are so well maintained always in  imaculate condition the lawns are like carpets surrounded  by  multi Coloured flowers and shrubs providing a beautiful back drop for a creative video shoot.

Hotel Kilkenny

Martina and Darren made a good decision in choosing Hotel Kilkenny for what was perfect summer wedding reception in the Orchard Suite, with its  walled garden and separate  entrance  I can only describe it as the ideal wedding reception location in Kilkenny.

Wedding Trends for 2018

With 2017 now firmly behind us and a whole new year of exciting wedding videography ahead of us, the team here at Drangan Video have been taking a look at the wedding trends that are set to make a huge impact here in Ireland. In this blog post we are going to take a look at what’s hot in 2018 and hopefully give you some inspiration for your very own big day.

Wedding Trends Ireland 2018

Remember, if you’re looking for a wedding video with a difference, Drangan Video will be only delighted to travel to your chosen destination, whether you’re getting married in Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny or Tipperary. Give us a call at any time and ask for Eamon, who will always be happy to help in any way he can.

• Bringing the outside in
2018 is all about celebrating nature and bringing the outside in on your big day. Experts are saying that this trend is great for those who have an active lifestyle and want to share their love of the outdoors with their guests. This trend will mean hiring potted plants or growing your own on the lead up to the big day, and will be sure to bring something special to the occasion.

• Pastels are out!
Over the past number of years we have seen brides revert to pastel colours for their bridal bouquets, however all that is set to change in 2018. Think plums, deep reds and burgundy’s, these darker more moody colours will make a big visual impact.

• Dance floors with a difference
Couples are opting for dance floors that make a statement at their venue of choice, think marble, think illuminated, think disco!

• Surprise your guests with edible stationery
Yes you heard us right, edible stationery is now a thing. This trend surfaced in the US over the past few years and has now made its way to Irish shores.

• Dessert Tables
Rather than serving the dessert to your guests in the traditional manner, consider setting up a dessert table with all of the unique sweet treats that are now on offer. Doughnuts, freak shakes, macaroons, ice-creams and puddings will have your guests feeling like royalty.

• Copper
Copper is the go to colour of 2018 and you can be assured that this trend will be making its way to Ireland over the coming months. Accessorising your centrepieces or table settings with copper elements will give an impression that is hard to beat.

• Pearls
Did they ever really go out of fashion?? Pearls are set to make a huge comeback on the 2018 bridal scene and we can understand why. There’s nothing quite as elegant as freshwater pearls, however there are cheaper alternatives that look just as good. Use them in your bouquet, jewellery, headpiece or on your table décor for that touch of elegance.

Celebrating New Year Engagements

Celebrating your Engagement

As is customary at this time of year, we see couples up and down the country getting engaged and setting their wedding dates for the years and months ahead. For those of you who have gotten engaged this Christmas or New Year, let us be the first to extend our heartiest congratulations to you both. The festive season is now the most popular time for engagements in Ireland and that doesn’t look set to change any time soon.

New Year Weddings In Tipperary

In this article we’re going to give you lovebirds some tips on arranging your engagement party and hope you have the most wonderful time whilst making the plans for your big day. Remember the lead up to the wedding goes so very fast, so enjoy every minute of the planning!

• Decide who is going to host the engagement party.
The first thing you will want to decide is who is going to host your engagement party (who will send the invitations). Are you going to send the invites from yourself or your fiancé or would you prefer they came from a parent or guardian?

• Pick a venue and set a date.
Decide where you would like your engagement party and what date would suit best for everyone attending. Try to stay away from weeknights or Sundays as you may find guests have work commitments the following morning.

• Write your guest list.
It may seem like an obvious step, but many couples forget to do this for their engagement party. This list will be a great help to you at a later date when you are making out the guest list for your big day.

• Set a budget
If you’re hiring a venue for the engagement party, you’ll need to set aside a budget for finger food and perhaps even a round of drinks for your guests. Make a list of all the items you’ll need and try to stick to your budget as closely as you can. Here are a few examples:

1. Venue hire
2. Entertainment
3. Finger food
4. Drinks
5. A cake
6. Videographer
7. Photographer
8. Décor

• Send out the invites
Try to give your guests as much notice as possible so they can arrange time off if required and organise child-care. The more notice you give your guests, the more likely they are to attend your celebrations.

Top Tip: Save on postage expenses by setting up an event for your engagement party on Facebook and inviting everyone with the click of a mouse. For those who are not on Facebook, you can send an email or make a simple telephone call.
