Weddings in Kilkenny are at an all time high which is good news for me, I can now safely say that 80% of my wedding videos are shot throughout Kilkenny City and county. In this wedding news blog I’m delighted to be sharing highlights from the wedding Video of Tom & Laura who were married in Foulkstown Church earlier this year.
As a Tipperary based wedding videographer I am always happy to travel over the boarder to Kilkenny and enjoy some of the fabulous wedding locations that Kilkenny has to offer, one such location is St. Josephs Church Foulkstown.
St Joseph’s Church Foulkstown, is situated on the Waterford Road, a 5min drive from Kilkenny city. The church has an old feel to it the inside of the church is plainly yet tastefully decorated but kept in excellent condition. There is enough seating for 180 wedding guests, it is a very popular choice of wedding ceremony venue for weddings in Kilkenny.
Laura and Tom’s Wedding Video
My day began with a visit to Cederwood Close, in Kilkenny city to capture the fun and excitement of the bridal preps, Ross Costigan was on duty for the wedding photography, he is a very nice guy to work with and his work is amazing.
The weather was looking good just the odd passing shower, Laura’s parents had placed a Child Of Prague Statue in the garden to ward off any black rain clouds.
The Infant/Child of Prague is a small wax medieval statue of the Christ child, Copies/reproductions of this statue were at one time found in the majority of Catholic homes around Ireland. This little statue was called upon for help to ensure good weather for family occasions such as wedding, communions and confirmations.
Bridal Preps Captured On Video
The bridal preps are the perfect start to a professional wedding video, Laura’s preps were in full swing when I arrived, this video clip captures the fun and emotion of the build up to her special day. I tend to blend into the background when filming in the brides house which assures a perfectly natural looking wedding DVD.
The couple enjoyed a relaxing wedding ceremony in Foulkstown Church, presided over by Fr. Dan Carroll who is a well know wedding celebrant in Kilkenny City.
Wedding Photos At Kilkenny City Library Johns Quay
Kilkenny City library is a one-storey Carnegie Library, built in 1910. The building is in a classical style with symmetrical façade.
Johns Quay is a particular favorite of mine for shooting high quality wedding video footage, the long-awaited new pedestrian and cycle bridge crossing the River Nore in Kilkenny named the ‘Lady Desart Bridge’, crosses from Bateman Quay to John’s Quay, it is a popular location for wedding video and photo shoots standing on the bridge provides a lovely view of Kilkenny Castle.
Weddings Reception In Newpark Hotel Kilkenny
The first wedding reception was held at the Newpark Hotel in 1966 and therefore our staff are very experienced in looking after and assisting you on your most important day. The Dunmore Suite can cater for up to 160 guests and the Glendine Suite can cater for up to 130 guests for the main wedding meal. For weddings over 180 guests both suites combine to offer you the perfect setting for a larger wedding party.
On arrival at the Newpark Laura and Tom were welcomed by Niall Dunne who is a very professional and friendly guy, in fact all the staff are fantastic to deal with, I like covering weddings in the Newpark it is one of Kilkenny’s top wedding reception venues.
Thanks to Laura and Tom for choosing Drangan Video they were a pleasure to work with, their wedding video highlights have already been shared on my Drangan Video Facebook page.
A number of Laura’s friends have contacted me about my services its great to be getting all these future Kilkenny Wedding bookings.
