Wedding Trends for 2019

It’s January again, that time of the year where we take a look at the trends that look set to take the wedding world by storm for the next 12 months. In this blog post we’re going to take a look at the trends for 2019, whilst also giving a nod to those old trends that looks set to continue long into the future. We’d love to hear any insights you may have, so do please feel free to comment below or get in touch with Drangan Video  via social media.

Colour Trends in 2019

2019 see the continuation of the trend for pastel colours; however, we are now looking at darker more dramatic shades. Set your sights on darks purples, pinks and blues and you can be sure that you’ll be right on trend. Silvers, golds, bronzes and metallic tones are also looking likely to top the style trends for guests and bridal parties alike!

Making the Change

We’re not quite sure if we should thank Megan Markle for this or not, but the stunning bride has set the tone for things to come with a change of dress after the wedding ceremony. Realising that cost plays a huge part in this new trend, we’d recommend keeping your eyes peeled for bridal bargains on the run up to your big day. Opt for an outfit or dress that allows you to relax and enjoy some dancing later in the evening without having to worry about or be restricted by a heavy gown.

Personalised Wedding Stationary

Never before has wedding stationary been so important! The trend now seems to be pointing more than ever to personalised wedding invites with monograms designed specifically for you both, professional calligraphy and laser cut designs. Most small towns, villages and cities in Ireland will have a number of craft professionals that will be delighted to design something bespoke for your and your intended. Plus you’re supporting a local small business, what could be better than that?

The More Intimate Experience

Whilst it appears the recession in Ireland is well and truly over (for now), Brides and Grooms have learned from the past decade of austerity and have taken stock of what is most important for their wedding day. Gone are the days of large extravagant weddings with three or four hundred guests, we now look more to the people who are most important in our lives and put them centre stage. Large weddings are great fun, but when the costs run too high it can be hard to justify any resulting debt!

Catering with a Difference

Looking for something different for your wedding? Why not look to the mobile catering trend that continues to grow throughout Ireland? More and more we are seeing Brides and Grooms employ the services of outside catering companies, burger vans, burrito bars, ice-cream vendors and mixologists! If you fancy a change from the traditional sit down dinner, have a look at some of your local mobile catering service providers for some incredible inspiration.

If you are planning a wedding in 2019 or 2020 and looking to hire the services of a professional wedding videographer, the team here at Drangan Video would love to hear from you. We are happy to travel anywhere in Ireland and will always work closely with you to provide you a service that will last you a lifetime.

What is documentary style wedding videography?

Documentary style is best described as ‘natural’ videography. There are no posed shots, no direction from the videography team, and no interruptions to your big day. We simply become invisible to you and your guests and capture the moments of your celebration in a very natural way. Discreet, documentary style videography tells the story of your day exactly how it happened!

Benefits of discreet, non-directed wedding videography

There are many benefits to this style of wedding videography, these include but are not limited to:

• Total discretion – we never interfere in proceedings and make sure that our presence is almost unnoticeable to your guests.
• No posed shots – this means we will never take you away from the natural flow of the day. We hang back and take the natural footage that presents itself during this important day.
• No direction from our team – you won’t hear any of the Drangan team giving directions to the bridal party or guests. They won’t even know we’re in the room!
• We let you tell your story to the camera – we blend into the background and capture the story of your day as it unfolds naturally.
• Authenticity – Our documentary style and discreet presence adds to the authenticity of your wedding video. When the guests are unaware of our presence, they become relaxed and act naturally in front of our discreetly positioned cameras.
• Emotions captured as they happen – real emotions, un-staged smiles and a true reflection of how you and your guests are feeling throughout the day.
• More focus on the little things – sometimes the little things can make all the difference to your big day. We pick up on the moments that can sometimes go unnoticed, interactions between relatives who haven’t seen each other in a while, a smile from the corner of the room, a child sleeping in the corner – it’s these little moments that make our style so special.
• Less intrusive than traditional videography – our discreet, hands-off approach to capturing the moments in your day mean there is no intrusion to the celebrations.

Recent Weddings in County Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video, we have had the pleasure of filming some of the most spectacular weddings recently in County Tipperary. In this blog post we are going to speak about the two venues we visited and give you a flavour of what you can expect if you decide to book your wedding in one of these wonderful venues.

Wedding Videography Tipperary
Ashley Park House, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary

Our first trip was to the amazing Ashley Park House, a luxury wedding venue located in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. This incredible 18th century country house hotel is nestled in 76 acres of breath-taking woodland and overlooks the scenic Lough Ourna.

The bride and groom chose this venue for it’s opulence and natural surroundings and we have to say we were absolutely blown away by the location. The event organisation staff left no stone unturned when it came to organising the perfect day!

On this occasion, the bride and groom opted for a civil ceremony on the grounds of the hotel, and this offered some fantastic opportunities for a wedding video with a difference.

When we first met with our bride and groom in 2017, we spoke to the couple about our documentary style approach to wedding videography. We specialise in discreet filming, meaning we don’t set up posed scenes or disturb the natural flow of the big day in any way. They were delighted with our professional approach and put their trust in us to deliver a wedding video that would capture the most important moments of their big day (and everything in between).

For any couples out there who may be considering The Ashley Park House for their wedding venue, we can wholeheartedly recommend it! We’ve been in this business for well over a decade and rarely come across a venue that is so professional, well organised, welcoming and luxurious.

Coolbawn Quay, Tipperary

Coolbawn Quay is a private village resort situated in northern Tipperary on the shores of Lough Derg. This unique venue offers cottages, rooms and suites scattered throughout the village with a hotel service provided for each guest.

We provided a full wedding video service for our wonderful bride and groom and have to admit we were mesmerised by the location, service and the natural layout of the village. The resulting wedding video captured all aspects of the big day and we made sure to include some of the wonderfully scenic backdrops in the resort to add that something special.

The bride and groom exchanged their vows in a civil ceremony at the waterfront under the lakeshore canopy and were blessed to have incredible weather, which further enhanced the happiness on the day.

For any budding brides and grooms out there who may be considering Coolbawn Quay as a venue for their wedding ceremony or reception, we would urge you to make that booking fast as we’d imagine this place gets booked up fast!

Naming the Tables at your Wedding

Over the past decade, the team here at Drangan Video have provided wedding video services to hundreds of brides and grooms across Ireland. We get to see the new trends in décor, watch some of the most amazing first dances and experience first hand the artistic ingenuity of our wonderful couples. In this article we’re going to talk about a growing trend that we think you can really have some fun with.

Wedding Videographer Tipperary

Gone are the days of simply numbering the tables at your wedding venue, more and more we are starting to see a strong trend towards naming tables… and we absolutely love it!

Think about the places, songs or movies that really hold a special place in your heart and then let your ideas flow as you begin to name your tables.

Destinations that are close to your heart:

Think of places that are special to you and your partner. Perhaps you met in a café in Dublin or holidayed in Paris, maybe your fiancé proposed to you in Rome? Tell your story through the cities and countries that shaped your relationship to date by naming your tables accordingly and perhaps providing a few lines about why this place is so special for you.

Important dates in your lives:

From the date you met to the date you became engaged and every date in between, let your guests share in your memories by naming each table after a special time in your life so far.

Movies that make you smile:

For the movie lovers out there, this is a really fun way to share your favourites with your family and friends. Whether you’re a lover of rom-coms or horror movies, this light-hearted way to name your tables will be a real icebreaker with your guests. Perhaps include some trivia about each movie to get your guests talking at the table?

Songs that make you tap your feet:

A song can trigger a thousand memories and never more so than when in the company of the people you love. Name your tables after songs that are going to appear in your set list a little later on or tunes that tell a story about your relationship.

A book lover’s paradise:

Perhaps you and your intended are real bookworms and want to share your favourite reads with your guests? Design table name cards that mimic book covers with quotes from the happy couple in the place of critic quotes. If you are a fan of a certain book series (think Harry Potter) you should have enough books to name every table!

Quotes with meaning:

Borrow the words of your heroes by using famous quotes to name your tables. Whether you opt for witty and humorous or topical and formal is totally up to you.

The places you love to visit together:

Whether it’s your Saturday trip to the local market, a restaurant you love to eat in or your local bar, name your tables after the places you feel most comfortable.

Work with nature:

Name your tables after your favourite flowers or herbs and use this opportunity to add to your table décor. A bunch of thyme at one table, a peony at another, the room will be smelling and looking wonderful!
