Reasons for having a wedding videographer

Hi all, thanks for dropping by and taking time out to read this weeks Drangan Video blog post. As you can see from the heading  today’s post is all about wedding videography,  with the current restrictions on guests  allowed to attend weddings, it makes great sense to consider hiring a wedding videographer

Here at Drangan Video we fully  understand that  wedding planning has taken a back seat  due to the uncertainty about social gatherings however this post can get you thinking about your big day and whether wedding videography is something you and your partner might consider!

Your Photographer will  capture still images which are  moments frozen in time, but video allows you to enjoy every part of your wedding day presented as a feature film.
As a busy wedding videographer  attending numerous  weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Limerick, Waterford and Dublin  I  can safely tell you that your wedding day will go by in a flash. Just think about the huge build up  to the day, all the hours of planning and dreaming abut the biggest day in your life,  don’t miss out on having it captured on video you can relive it time and time again when viewing  your wedding film.

Audio Memories

A wedding videographer we will capture the full day  allowing you to relive your wedding vows again, share them with future children  or family who couldn’t be present on your wedding day. A videographer will also capture  your reception  recording the speeches and all the kind words  and comments that you’ll listen to and cherish for the rest of your lfe

Video captures the emotional moments

Our job as wedding videographers is  to document the full day with a view to capturing those special  emotional moments between family, friends and guests.  We often get feedback  from  couple’s saying how surprised they were to see certain parts of the day on video, saying they didn’t realize we had been there at that particular time.  There is so much happening on a wedding day it would be easy to miss something, especially when you are the star of the show, its normal  get caught up in the day and maybe missing out on special moments, your  videographer will be there to film not only you but your guests and all the emotional and fun moments.

Wedding videography  is sometimes described  as an unnecessary extra  added cost to an already tight wedding budget, obviously as a wedding videographer I don’t  agree.  Yes for sure weddings are very expensive and you could find yourself running over your budget.
If you are in the early stages of wedding planning for your wedding in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford or Cork  I would recommend  to seriously considering   budgeting for  videography services. There are certainly other important costs  to prioritize, but if you can find the room in your budget, definitely consider having your wedding day captured by a professional wedding videographer.

Should We Have A Big Or Small Wedding

Here at Drangan Video we are all set for a return next week to shooting wedding videos in Tipperary Kilkenny and up and down the country, cameras and equipment have been checked out making sure that batteries and sound recording equipment are in perfect condition for our busy Autumn wedding  schedule.
We have been chatting with lots  couples over the past six weeks regarding wedding planning post covid lockdown, the question of should we have a big or small wedding is a popular topic.

Should  we have a big or small wedding

When married couples  hear  that a friend  has popped the question and are are in the process of wedding planning  they smile knowingly about all the hard work that is ahead of them. Planning  a wedding is very exciting  but very hard work, just deciding  on the dress you have to think about whether you want the most modern  design or a more traditional wedding dress,  and then  the big question are you going to splash out on a big wedding  or a smaller  more personal celebration with families and very close friends.

Small weddings work well  because you’ll have  more time with  family and friends  you won’t have to greet 250 guests outside the church door which can take an hour from your day,  instead you can mingle with individual  guests at different times during the day at the reception venue. This is worth thinking  about because having   guests are why you wanted to have a wedding in the first place  you wanted  to share the most important day in your life with the people you love. But If you want to invite  lots of people  the  big wedding is the the way to go, you can invite who want and  don’t have to spend hours  looking   at the guest lists  wondering  how you can possibly cut it down.  Everyone can dance a lot at a big gathering  this is a really good reason for having a big wedding if dancing is something that matters a lot to you.

Weddings In Tipperary

Many  couples are comfortable  with a small wedding because they can have it at a venue like a restaurant where  everyone can sit down  chill and eat.  If you are having  70 people or less  say closer to 30, that amount of people might look lost  in a huge venue, It may seem like you have almost no one there which would be disappointing  considering all time and effort put  into planning your big day

 You’ll want to remember your big day.

Here at Drangan Video So many of our couples remark about how the whole is  a blur, they enjoyed their wedding day but they can’t pick out any special moments  from it. That’s not exactly what you want, one  advantage  of a small wedding is that you can relax and enjoy the whole experience  instead of being distracted by so many guests around you all day.

RELATED:

Believe  it or not the job of creating a smaller guest list can be pretty stressful, differing  opinions  can crop up between the bride and groom, each of whom may have small or large families or huge circles of friends who they are  having trouble trimming  down. Big weddings are good for avoiding  arguments about the guest list, you’ll know that you’re both inviting as many people as you want to, anway  who wants to chawing the rag  while planning the most special day in your life

A Small Wedding Could Make People Unhappy

A small wedding could upset people in your life,  friends and family members may not understand your reason  for having  a smaller, more intimate gathering  you may find yourself answering  questions as to why certain people were omitted from the guest list, that doesn’t sound like a good position to be in.
The real question is, what kind of wedding do you really want ?  What is your gut feeling ?  There is for and against  big and small weddings our advice is to go  what your heart is telling you.

Feeling Sad About Postponing Your Wedding

Covid 19 has played havoc with weddings here in  Ireland and around the world  so many  couples having  to postpone their wedding day.  If you are feeling depressed and  powerless  you’re not the only one.  In this blog post we have come with  a few  ideas to help you cope with the disappointment.

Feeling Depressed  About Postponing Your Wedding

From all here at Drangan Video we are so  sorry  that  your special day has been postponed  our thoughts are with you  A wedding is one of the biggest events in a couples life it binds two people together  for life.
Organizing  a wedding is an  emotional  time with a huge build to the big day  months of planning  and clever  financial  management are just the tip of the iceberg.  Then  having to  postpone and re-plan all over again  is  very difficult  to handle.

A wedding cancellation  is a huge life changing  event for a couple, but with everything that’s going on in the world over the past few months  if all your loved ones are healthy and well, you are still very lucky and all is not lost. When you’re  trying to come to terms  with having to postpone  your big day, you might also  be feeling guilty for not appreciating  what you do have, this is typical human reaction the most important thing you can do is to accept that you are allowed to feel sad.  We understand that  our brain reacts differently to certain emotions  that  inner voice might be saying this is the worst thing that has ever happened  I cannot cope with this terrible  news  it is not what I wanted.

It is natural to feel all of those emotions  each partner may experience them at  at different times or in different ways  just because they are not showing their emotions in the way that you are, it doesn’t mean they aren’t feeling them. Men do have a tendency to hide their feelings  where as  women like  to talk about and share their emotions. The worst thing you can do is tell your partner that they are overreacting, being oversensitive or taking things out of proportion, just  listen  and accept their point of view. You don’t have to fully agree  but acknowledge your partners point of view and tell them that they make sense.

Going forward think about the bigger picture, you are both healthy and well  you will get married, it’s  not at the time you had originally planned  but you have the rest of you lives to enjoy being married. Look to the future think about about the stories you can tell your children  years from now.  How you coped as a couple,  How  you worked together as a couple to overcome the challenge.   Some couples have been keeping a lock down diary to remind them of how they  got through this time with strength and resilience, just remember that its just one postponed day in your life  and your relationship is far more meaningful that that.

Why hire a wedding videographer

Many couples struggle with the idea of having a wedding video, they see it as an unnecessary cost  here at Drangan Video we speak to couples who didn’t have a videographer on their big day, many say it’s one of their greatest mistakes

Wedding photographers are brilliant at capturing special moments from your wedding day, there are certain things they can’t capture for instance audio and movement Hiring a professional videographer will ensure that  you will  get all pictures and sound bites  from your big  day  included  in one memorable wedding film that  you will  treasure for ever.

 Wedding videos are not like the old days

Some couples think that wedding videography  means  bright lights huge cameras   in your face all day.  Today’s wedding videographers adapt a more documentary  easygoing style of filming, meaning you might not even notice them at all during the day, here at Drangan Video one of our favourite compliemenyts  is “We didn’t  see you all day”

 Video captures audio and movement

The greatest reason why you should consider hiring  a wedding videographer, video captures magical audible moments  such as your mom’s  words of advice as she helps with putting on the wedding dress,  your Dad’s  reaction to seeing you in your outfit for the first time,  or the fun and laughter during the morning preps. These are the moments that  you’ll relive everytime you look at your video long after your wedding day,  there’s also no better way to document your vow exchange. Video will also capture those important moments from the wedding reception, such as toasts and songs and not forgetting the first dance.

Video captures the non set up moments

Your photographer will get all those sometimes boring set up posed  shots, but for everything for else  you will  need a professional discreet videographer. And since there’s no posing, you won’t have to worry about been embarrassed or looking  or awkward on video, just  enjoy the fun and celebrations into the late hours

 Wedding videos are not long dull epic films

Gone are the days that  a wedding video  plays out as a boring 3 hour slideshow,  your videographer will  capture all the emotion and fun from the full day and deliver as a short  engaging three  to five-minute highlights film.  Same day edits are popular  in wedding videography, meaning your videographer will capture the best moments from the morning preps up to and including moments from the ceremony  that  be viewed at the reception, short highlight films are also shared on Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo and Youtube
