Planning Interactive Entertainment For Your Wedding Day

Drangan Video has recently been lucky enough to provide wedding videograper services for a number of weddings in Kilkenny and Tipperary. At these weddings we were able to gain some inspiration for this ‘interactive’ wedding blog post, which we hope you will enjoy.

Apart from the vows – and the brides’ dress of course – one of the most important parts of any wedding party is the entertainment. It’s the entertainment that helps you and your guests to relax, kick your shoes off and really get into the spirit of things. Over the past number of years we have seen a large shift from the traditional entertainment of just a band or a DJ and a move towards a more interactive experience. The band and DJ will always have it’s place and we would be 100% remiss to think otherwise, however, it may be worth checking out some other varieties of entertainment that will compliment the music and have your guests raving about your big day for years to come.

Whether you’re having a laid-back outdoor wedding or a traditional formal wedding, it’s a good idea to ensure your guests are entertained throughout what can be a long day (especially for the kids).

  1. Hire a Magician

A magician is fun for guests of all ages, making it a great form of entertainment to have at your wedding. Most magicians on the Irish wedding circuit are happy to perform during the reception, after the toasts are completed and in the foyer as a welcome for your guests.

For those of you who have children at your big day, a magician can be a great way to get them to gather together and relax for a bit whilst the entertainer does his thing!

  1. Dance Lessons

Weddings and dancing go hand in hand, but why not take it a step further and offer your guests dance lessons.

Hire a dance instructor to teach your guests how to dance. It’s a great way to get your guests involved and to get everybody up on the dance floor.

Visions of line dancing, cha cha cha’s and old time waltzes will make great memories for you and your guests.

  1. Cocktail Bar & Liquor Tasting

We have seen cocktail bars now at a number of wedding venues, and they go down an absolute treat with the adults at the party. Consider hiring a professional cocktail maker or mixologist who can demonstrate and entertain those guests who want to avoid that queue at the bar. Let the adults sample some exotic liquors and consider setting up a kiddies cocktail bar with sodas, ice-creams and fruit juices, this will ensure all ages have an unforgettable experience

  1. Pick and Mix Sweet Stand

Rather than just handing out sweets to the guests or leaving parcels at their table, why not set up a pick and mix stand instead? The pick and mix sweet stand is an attraction that is sure to attract guests of all ages. Guests can help themselves and take home customised jars of goodies as a special memento of your big day.

  1. Make your Own Food Station

Whether it is crepes or hot dogs, a make your own food station can be a great way to make mealtime a bit more exciting. This could get a bit messy, so be prepared!

We’re sure there’s lots more interactive options available for weddings up and down the country and we would love to hear about any unique suggestions you may have, so please feel free to drop us a line.

Lovely Country Style Wedding Video In Doon Co. Limerick

On March 18th 2016 I had the pleasure of filming  the wedding of Katie and David who exchanged their vows  in St. Patrick’s Church Doon, Co. Limerick.
It was a wedding with a difference,  just a little bit off center of main stream,  coming from a farming back ground in the hearth of Tipperary,  country style weddings are very close to my own heart.

The wedding video begins with a visit to Katie’s parents  house, where katie grew up and helped out on the family farm. The spring sunshine was beaming down upon  the lush green pastures which surrounded the  traditional farm house and buildings.
When I arrived the bridal preps were in full swing with a mixture of fun and slightly nervous pre  wedding  excitement, a beautifully restored V W Camper was the means of transport to the church.

Doon is a litle country village in east County Limerick,  close to the border of my own  County Tipperary.

Carrigmore Farm Self-Catering accommodation  is situated on the grounds of the Cummins farm which is 3 miles from Doon village in County Limerick. The building is south facing, tucked away in a peaceful courtyard of the farm, down a small lane which overlooks cattle grazing in the fields.

Carrigmore, or “Big Rock” in the Irish Language, is a major geological feature in the area. It is a solid rock of flint that was deposited long ago by glaciers. From the house you can look out the back window at the rock to the North and the beauty of the surrounding countryside with the Galtee Mountains in the distance to the South.
Katie has fond childhood memories of climbing Carrigmore and as it happens the ” Big Rock” was her choice of location for  amazing wedding photos and stunning wedding video footage. We were transported to base of the rock on the back of a farm jeep, wellies were the order of day for our journey to the summit, it was the most amazing wedding footage that I have ever recorded.

After our expatiation  to the Rock it was time to head back over the boarder to my native Tipperary  and the superb Ballykisteen Wedding Venue.  Set in 170 acres of manicured parkland golf course and gardens, Ballykisteen Hotel & Golf Resort is an exclusive wedding venue in Co. Tipperary, t he gracious Palatine Suite can host up to 280 guests, with twinkling chandeliers and incredible views it is fit for a princess and guaranteed to wow.  In my role as a  wedding videographer im a regular visitor to Ballykisteen, it is always a  pleasant  experience the management and staff are so nice to deal with.
