Great News for Irish Weddings

Whilst the last number of months have been quite stressful for many brides and grooms, they can now see a clear path ahead that allows them to plan with confidence. On Friday the 19th of June, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced that Ireland would be proceeding into phase 3 of the easing of restrictions in Ireland. No doubt this announcement brought great relief to our couples who have been awaiting this news for quite some time. Let’s have a quick recap on the information provided for social gatherings:

Please do note that all the information provided below is subject to public health guidance and the ongoing decline in Covid 19 cases.

From the 29th of June until the 20th of July, government and NPHET have advised that gatherings of up to 50 people can take place indoors with social distancing in place. Outdoor venues have a bit more leeway and can accommodate up to 200 people during this timeframe. Keep in mind that these numbers will need to include staff and any wedding suppliers that need to be onsite such as the photographer and videographer.

July 20th sees the introduction of phase 4 and therefore a further increase on numbers allowed. For those of you getting married during this time, you can allow for up to 100 people indoors or 500 outdoors. Social distancing will of course have to be in place at your venue during this time, however some careful planning can mean that sitting family groups together can make this a wonderful occasion.

Should you find that the current guidelines and numbers are too restrictive, it’s worth considering the following options:

• Rescheduling of your wedding day until a clearer picture of the pandemic has emerged.
• Opting for an outdoor event instead of indoors. Whilst the good old Irish weather can be a bit unpredictable, the venue may be able to offer a marquee for your celebrations.
• Live-streaming of your event to family and friends.
• Reducing the numbers on your guest list.
• Speak with family and friends and get an idea of how attending an event makes them feel. What are their concerns? Once you have this information you can then work towards solutions that make everyone feel comfortable.
• Consider a two-part wedding. Many brides and grooms have opted to go ahead with the ceremony itself with limited numbers in attendance and are planning the ultimate celebration when all restrictions have been lifted.
• If you are planning a destination wedding, it’s vitally important that you communicate regularly with your venue/wedding planner and keep up to date with travel guidelines in your chosen country.

Mary and Seán’s Wedding Video Story

Mary & Seán tied the knot on October 26th 2019 it was a fab fun filled wedding day they were a lovely couple to work with, both so laid back and easygoing.

During the Irish  Famine the  Warhouse in Ballingarry Tipperary  was the location of the 1848 Rebellion. The house shows the history of the Irish  Famine, as I drove by the war house  on my way to Mary’s bridal preps my thoughts were  of how lucky I am  to be heading off to a carefree  happy event.
On arrival I captured nice aerial drone  shots of the hills of Ballingarry it was a very cold crisp morning,  I was glad to get indoors  the sounds of laughter chat and excitement coming from the house was heartwarming. I’ve been shooting weddings in Tipperary and Kilkenny for over 25 years,  all the experience  has been invaluable, the morning preps are a mood  barometer as to what kind of wedding we will have.  The barometer reading was high for this one,  the girls had their hair/makeup done  in Mary’s brother’s house then they set off on foot to Mary’s parents house a 4 minute walk down a winding country road a great opportunity for fun video shots.

Weddings In Holycross Abbey

Mary & Seán’s choice of wedding ceremony location was the beautifully restored Holycross Abbey in Tipperary  its also a  popular tourist attraction where visitors  can ring  the oldest church bell in Ireland it is more 750 years old.  Holy Cross Abbey is the number one choice for weddings ceremonies  in Tipperary.
Seán is a proud Holycross man he is well know in Tipperary GAA circles as a club  hurler and county supporter, the boys arrived early in good time to greet their guests as they made their way into the much needed  warmth of the church.
The aisle in the Holycross Abbey is quite a long walk in heels it was no problem for Mary,  she was in good hands as she made her way up with her brother Pat who handed her over to Seán in an emotional exchange. The ceremony was conducted by  Fr. Derry Quirke  from Ballingarry  he added  a personal touch to the ceremony by mentioning Mary’s late dad who would have been so proud to see his daughter saying yes to the love of her life Seán Comerford.

After the ceremony it was time that familiar joyful  walk down the aisle followed by a lengthy guest receiving line at the church door. Guests were not for hanging around for very long, the late October weather was a chilly a reminder that summer days or becoming a memory. It was a pleasure working with the wonderful  Katie Kavanagh for the photos her work is fun, candid and laid back, she did the bridal party photos around Holy Cross before heading off to the hotel.

Weddings In The County Arms Birr

Birr is one of Ireland’s best heritage towns  It’s most famous landmark, the  Castle Gardens & Science Center  attracts large numbers of  tourists annually, The Great Telescope is my personal favorite must see attraction.

The  County Arms Hotel was founded  by Michael & Margaret Loughnane in 1962 it  is  Offaly’s first four star Hotel.
The  walled Garden is a wedding videographer’s  dream for capturing romantic footage as couples take time out for a quite stroll through the perfectly manicured  gardens and yet  only a few yards from their wedding  guests.
The County Arms is a popular wedding reception location for Tipperary & Kilkenny couples.
