Each and every year for over a decade, the team here at Drangan Video have been lucky enough to travel to Carlow to provide videography services for some of the nicest couples we have ever met. Carlow town and county has a wealth of beautiful scenery and attractive locations that are simply perfect for photo-shoots and wedding videos. In this short article we are going to cover some of our favourite spots and would love to hear from any Carlow residents on their own personal favourites that we not be familiar with.

Altamont Gardens  for wedding videos in Carlow
1. Altamont Gardens

No matter what time of year you visit Altamont Gardens, there is always an amazing array of flora to feast your eyes on. This idyllic location is the perfect spot for some outdoor video shots and we’re sure your photographer will love the place just as much as we do.

2. Brownshill Dolmen

Fancy a short stop for a photograph with a difference or some beautifully lit wedding videography? Try the Brownshill Dolmen for a backdrop with a difference.

3. Huntington Castle

Situated just outside Clonegal, Huntington Castle is the perfect backdrop for those of you who want some real royal treatment on your big day. The castle and gardens are an impressive sight and will add something incredibly special to the ambience of your photographs and videos.

4. Duckett’s Grove

With recently renovated gardens and some spectacular landscaping, the castle at Duckett’s Grove is synonymous with Carlow’s love of history. An 18th century castle in all it’s glory with some of the most spectacular scenery in this part of the country, you would be mad not to head here for some wedding photo’s should you get the opportunity.

5. Oak Park Forest

If you fancy something a little bit off the beaten track, then we can wholly recommend a stroll through the Oak Park Forest. A most rustic background for your wedding videos and photographs. Probably best to take a trip there before the big day and scout out your favourite spots.

You will notice that most of the places we have listed above in Carlow are outdoor locations and that in part is why we love them so much. It has to be noted though that you should research some indoor alternatives in the event of bad weather.

Kilkenny Wedding Photographer Ties The Knot

John Delaney is a professional wedding photographer based in Kilkenny city, since setting up his business as a full time wedding supplier he has attended  his fair share of weddings in Kilkenny and surrounding counties.
On May 12th 2017 John  married his long time sweetheart Noeleen, when John and Noeleen  asked me to film their special day I said yes and would be more than happy to record their big day, it was interesting  to see John at the other side of the camera for a change.

Noeleen is also a busy wedding supplier, her business is known as Kilkenny Hen and Party Events  so both John and Noeleen are no strangers to the busy and demanding wedding supplier market.
John is a much sough after wedding photographer, his work is amazing, his attention to detail is second to none. I was delighted to be his choice of videographer but I did fell under pressure to produce an extra special wedding video knowing that John would be casting a  judgemental  eye over the finished production.

Wedding Ceremony In Butler House Kilkenny

The video story begins with ample  footage from the Bridal Preps, Noeleen was enjoying all the special attention that she was receiving from her bridesmaids. Ella who is Noeleen and John’s daughter and needless to say she is their  pride and joy was also helping Mum with the final preps.
The ceremony took place in one of Kilkenny’s finest civil ceremony venues  Bulter House is situated close to  Kilkenny Castle, once upon a time it was home of the Earls of Ormonde, elegant  staircases, high plastered ceilings, marble fireplaces and a  walled garden are just some of the beautiful features that the house has to offer.

John and Noeleen’s wedding ceremony was  very special, they are a lovely down to earth couple, born and raised in Dublin and worked hard to get to where they are today. John was somewhat emotional during the exchange of the rings I think its nice when guys are not afraid to show their emotional side on their big day.

Wedding Reception Langton House Hotel

The wedding reception took place in the  in Set Theatre , Langton House  Kilkenny,  just  across the road from St. John’s Church  and a short walk from Kilkenny Castle, langtons is the ideal location for a memorable  wedding reception in Kilkenny City.
John and Noeleen  had their reception in Set Theater which is suitable for a full wedding reception or evening reception, I love shooting weddings in the Set, its like stepping into an  upmarket European wedding  venue.

Wedding Videographer Kilkenny

It was a real pleasure to have been the videographer for John and Noeleen, it was a fab wedding both families were so nice and friendly, it was also a fun wedding. They are a very happy couple and as you can see from the video clip they are very close soulmates.

If you are planning your wedding in Kilkenny  and trying to decide on a photographer, get in contact with John Delaney his work is top class at an affordable price.
As a kilkenny based wedding videographer I work with John on a regular basis, his  lighthearted approach to wedding photography makes a pleasant change from the more traditional serious style, some of my best videos were created while working with John.
