Tipperary Wedding News Pinterest
• Simple Wedding Hair Styles

Clearly the days of elaborate hairstyles are gone, todays emphasis is on simple up styles, curls and twists that every bride can do herself.

• Blue Suits for Men

Well we would be blind if we didn’t notice this trend over the past 24 months! The grooms and their groomsmen have clearly been very successfully marketed to and are all looking for the on trend blue suit.

• Brogues

A trend that goes hand in hand with the blue suits we mentioned above. Irelands men have embraced their heritage and are all about the brown brogues that have taken the country by storm.

• Matching Wedding Tattoos

This one caught us by surprise, but it seems more and more brides and grooms are opting for a permanent reminder of their big day. In particular we are seeing many tattooed wedding rings and small tattooed symbols that will no doubt stand the test of time along with any marriage.

• Statement Wedding Jewellery

Brides today are looking for jewellery that strays from the more tradition delicate diamonds and pearls and are opting for statement pieces that really say something special about the bride. Luckily Ireland is blessed with talented jewellery makers that can design a piece specifically for your desires.

Tipperary Wedding Cakes
• Taco Bars

Yes, you read that right. Searches for Taco bars are up a whopping 142% on 2016 and it looks like wedding guests could be treated to a whole host of mouth-watering options to choose from. What a wonderful idea… although we do have some reservations about some of the stains this could leave behind on wedding attire!

• Drop Frosted Wedding Cakes

One of the newest trends to hit our shores, and without doubt one of the most sought after. These beautifully decorated masterpieces will certainly be a most dramatic centrepiece on your big day.

Now, regardless of what’s trending and what’s not, we would always recommend going with choices that truly suit you and your intended. Trends are all very well, but as we all know, they certainly come and go. Choose options that are close to your heart and ask yourself if you will be happy with those decisions in years to come.

Wedding Video In Ballyragget

Vicki and Seamie were married in Ballyragget Kilkenny, I am very proud to be sharing this fab highlights clip from their wedding video.
Once again I had ventured over the Tipperary Kilkenny border to shoot yet another  wedding video in Kilkenny

Ballyragget is a small town in Kilkenny, it is situated on the banks the river Nore in north Kilkenny.

The video begins on the outskirts of Ballyragget with coverage of Vicki and the girls preparing for the happiest day of Vickie’s life, she is finally about to become Mrs Vickie Corrigan.

St. Patrick’s Church  stands proud in the centre of Ballyragget in an area locally know as chapel lane, it is a lovely setting for a wedding ceremony.

Vickie and Seamie enjoyed a nice relaxed wedding ceremony which was  celebrated by Fr. Tommy Murphy.

Vickie and Seamie at Butler House

We stopped off at Butler House Kilkenny for the photos and  video coverage, the garden and interior of the house are a wedding videographers  paradise.  The interior consists  of  a number of magnificent reception rooms, with high ceilings and impressive bay windows. The perfectly maintained  walled garden is ideal for wedding photos, Kilkenny Castle provided a beautiful backdrop for Vicke and Seamie’s photo call.

Langton House Hotel is one the best wedding venues in the south east, my own daughter had her wedding reception in Langtons in 2013, so I am probably been somewhat  bias in stating that Langtons is my favourite wedding venue in Kilkenny

I really enjoyed working with Vickie and Seamie on the day, they were a dream couple, just so relaxed down to earth  and easygoing, they are very happy with their wedding film.

Thanks for taking the time to read my latest wedding  blog post, if you are right in the middle of wedding planning and have not yet hired a wedding videographer, please feel free to contact myself Eamon who will be more than happy to fill you in on the latest range of high quality HD wedding video packages available from Drangan Video.

What to do after the big day

In this blog post we are going to talk a little bit about what happens when the big day is over. All those months if not years of planning come to a head on your big day and then all of a sudden you’re wondering what comes next, hopefully this article will give you some tips on how to spend the days following your nuptials.

Stay an extra day

If you are celebrating your wedding at a hotel, it can be lovely idea to stay an extra night with your wedding party, or immediate family. Use this quality time to unwind and reminisce over the big day, you can also use this time to catch up with anyone you may have missed out on mingling with during the wedding breakfast. Many hotels offer an extra night free for the Bride and Groom so make sure you enquire about this at the time of booking your venue.

Make a List

It may be tempting the day after your wedding when you see all those cards and gifts to tear into them- that’s understandable, it’s like Christmas! All those beautifully wrapped gifts and nicely addressed envelopes to you and your new Mr or Mrs. However, make sure you take a breath and remember to make a note of all those generous guests who brought gifts for your big day, you will want to thank those people later. Making a note of who gave you cash and who got you that handy bread maker will mean you’re able to pop a personalised message into each card, instead of writing ‘thank you for your generous gift…’ potentially hundreds of times. It also saves you the embarrassment of realising a few months down the line that you missed someone off the list.

Go on your Honeymoon

Traditionally the married couple departed for their honeymoon immediately after the wedding celebration- we’ve all see that scene in Father of the Bride, right? But, while this is probably out of reach for most couples, looking forward to your honeymoon or even planning a late one will bring great joy for you and your new husband or wife.

Wedding Planning Tips Kilkenny and Tipperary

Hit the Dry Cleaners

In this instance you can probably pass this along to one of the bridal party (if they’re feeling up to it the day after). You’ll likely have a few pictures taken outside after saying ‘I do’ which might mean your beautiful dress has been trailed through the mud, or had a few things spilled on it during the course of the day, not to mention all that dancing. Your wedding clothes may be the most expensive togs you ever invest in so, take care of them by taking them to the dry cleaners as soon after the big day as possible.


Coordinating your big day, no matter what size it is, can be TIRING, this remains true for all event planning. Likely you’ll have planned treatments before the wedding so you’ll look your best, but why not book a massage in the days following your wedding so you can start married life feeling and looking great too?

Make a Weekend out of it

More and more, we are seeing brides and grooms host a second night of entertainment and celebration the night following the wedding day. Consider hosting an ‘after party’ at your local pub or club and extend the festivities so that you get to enjoy the occasion in a more informal setting. This is a particularly good idea if you have relatives and friends who have travelled to attend your nuptials and allows you to spend some more time in their company before they depart.

Contact Eamon at Drangan Video for a quote, we will be more than happy to offer a special all-in price for two nights coverage of your wedding video in Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford or Carlow Eamon is always on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Christmas Wedding In Thurles

December 28th was a pleasant day, the sun was shining not a snowflake in sight it was difficult to believe that it was Christmas.
Laura and Thomas were blessed with the unseasonably mild dry weather, today I’m delighted to sharing  this beautiful highlight video of their special day.

Video coverage of the day began with  the ever popular bridal preps which took place at Laura’s parents house in Littleton, Thurles. I arrived at 11am which allowed ample time for generous coverage of the the excitement and fun that was unfolding before the video lens.

Thurles is  Tipperary’s “Cathedral Town”  and what better place to celebrate a Tipperary wedding than in The Cathedral of the Assumption Thurles.
As I dove through the gates the sun was shining brightly on the front of the Cathedral, wedding guest were in no panic about going indoors, in fact it looked and felt more like April than Christmas. Once inside the Cathedral there was no mistake about the time of year, beautiful Christmas candles and decorations added to the spender of Laura and Thomas’s  magical Christmas wedding day.

After the ceremony we stopped off at Holycross Abbey for wedding photos, it is a very special  place where you can walk in the footsteps of ancient Monks.  The beautiful 12 century Cistercian “Holycross Abbey” is a popular and much sough after wedding ceremony venue for weddings in Tipperary and surrounding counties.

It was a pleasure working with Tipperary based wedding photographer Colin Kenny  he is based in Fethard and covers weddings all over Tipperay, Kilkenny and Waterford
Colin’s Words: Photographic trends come and go, but my challenge is to deliver you images of timeless, beautiful storytelling that truly capture your day. It is my goal, that when you look back on your wedding day in years to come, you will be transported back to that special moment in time and the emotions of the day.  Colin Kenny Photographer

Ballykisteen Golf Hotel was the  wedding  reception venue. Ballykisteen Hotel is  located in the heart of  Tipperary it sits in the shadow of the Galtee Mountains and is only a 35 min drive from Limerick, Ballykisteen is one of my favorite wedding reception venues, the staff are amazing and so friendly to deal with.
