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.
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.
In this week’s blog post I am delighted to sharing yet another wedding video from my home county of Tipperary.
Valerie and Kevin celebrated their wedding in Two-Mile-Borris, it is a small tidy village in County Tipperary located on the outskirts Thurles town.
February 18th was a lovely day lots of spring sunshine and not a rain drop in sight.
After setting up my main camera and microphones in the church I quickly made my way to Valerie’s house to grab some of the pre wedding excitement. Aileen Kennedy was the wedding photographer for the day, Aileen and myself have lost count of the number of weddings that we have covered around Thurles, Cashel, Clonmel and all overTipperary, she is a top class photographer and a pleasure to work with.
Valerie and her Bridal team were enjoying the build up to the main event, the sun was beaming through the windows spring was in the air and the girls had a spring in their step.
Fr. George Burke conducted a lovely personal and easy going ceremony with some light hearted comments thrown in helping to relax the slightly nervous couple.
Wedding Photos In Templemore Park
We stopped off at Templemore Town park for the wedding photos the park is a real treasure for the little town of Templemore.
As a wedding photo venue this park has so much to offer a lake and an impressive fountain.
Valerie and Kevin enjoyed a pleasant stroll around the wooded area of the park, I was delighted to have captured beautiful video footage of the happy couple as they walked hand in hand chatting and enjoying time out from their busy wedding day schedule.
County Arms Hotel Birr
Our final stop was at the County Arms Hotel in Birr, it is popular choice of wedding venue for Tipperary couples, it is also one of my favorite wedding reception locations, the walled Garden is ideal for wedding video and photo shoots. Built over 200 years ago and recently refurbished the County Arms Hotel, Birr, County Offaly is the perfect wedding venue for any discerning Bride and Groom.
Valerie enjoyed a fab wedding reception, the speeches were very entertaining and well delivered, during the preparations for the dancing I capture some lovely comments from the guests all wishing the happy couple all the best for the future.
My day finished at 11pm I was finally on my way home to Tipperary and very happy with my video coverage of Valerie and Kevin’s wedding day.

Why hire a wedding videographer in Kilkenny?
You may be undecided at the moment as to whether you would like to hire the services of a professional videographer and that is only natural as costs mount up quite fast. We fully realise that planning a wedding can be a costly experience and know that brides and grooms across the country are looking to make savings where possible. However, we do also meet with a lot of Brides and Grooms who speak longingly about their big day and the regret they have at not capturing every moment to relive in the months and years that follow.
When you hire a videographer, you do so to capture the most important moments of your wedding day. The day goes by so fast and couples rarely get to see everything that goes on around them. With an expertly and discretely shot wedding video, you can take the time to sit down at a later date and relive your big day from a different viewpoint.
Frequently asked questions:
We find that by asking the right questions, you can make an informed decision on whether a wedding video is right for you.
Can I just get a friend to video the wedding on a phone or small device?
As a result of speaking with many brides and grooms up and down the country, we can certainly say that whilst your friend may have all the best intentions, an amateur video will in no way capture all of the ambience and special moments of your big day.

Can you film at both the ceremony venue and the reception?
Yes certainly, Drangan can offer you an all inclusive package to film at the locations of your choosing such as, the exchanging of vows, in your home during the morning preparations and of course the all important first dance.
