 Wedding Videographer Kilkenny and Tipperary

In this blog post we are going to stray somewhat from our normal wedding themed blog posts and use our experience as wedding videographers in Kilkenny and Tipperary to share with you some walks you can take during your daily exercise. Remember that you can only take these walks if they are no further than 2km from your home and always strictly follow government guidelines.

Videographer Kilkenny

Over the past 25 years, the team here at Drangan Video have been blessed to capture hundreds of weddings in Tipperary and Kilkenny. This experience has given us a real in-depth knowledge of the local area and the wonderful walks and trails that can be found in both rural and urban settings.

 Short Walks in Kilkenny

Jenkinstown Walk – A Coillte Amenity.

Situated just outside Kilkenny city centre is the walled garden loop of Jenkinstown walk. According to the Coillte website, their parks and woodlands remain open for pedestrians only and all car parks are closed. This measure has been taken to ensure citizens who live within 2km of the amenity can use the facility while adhering to current guidelines. Take a stroll through this wonderful trail and let your worries drift away. The greenery, flora and fauna that is in abundance in this wonderful setting makes this the perfect place for your daily walk.

Tory Hill, Mullinavat

When you are partaking in individual exercise over the next few weeks, we can wholly recommend Tory Hill for its breath-taking scenery and woodland tracks. The views from the top of Tory Hill will clear the head and offer superb photography opportunities.

Dun Ui Faoiain Loop

The Dun Ui Faolain Loop is another wonderful Coillte amenity that can be enjoyed when undertaking your individual exercise or with children from your household in this fabulous weather. Please do note that all car parks at Coillte amenities are closed, so only take this walk if it is within 2kms of your home. The loop walk in Dun Ui Faolain takes you through Glenbawn Wood, along the banks of the Suir and is an easy stroll for those who may not be acclimatised to regular exercise.

Morning Preps
It was a winter wedding  only by name, December 21st was a crisp dry sunny day, I like  winter weddings the low angled sunshine combined with bare trees  adds to the challenge of producing a stunning  winter wedding film, here at drangan video we love a challenge
Morning preps at Sarah’s parents house kicked of with some cracking drone video footage capturing the rich Kilkenny country side, its amazing how green everything looked on the shortest day of the year.
The Tyrrell family are so nice I felt very much at home in their company it was great working with Tanya from Eden Photography she is a very creative photographer we work very well together. Elaine Murphy  Bridal/Occasions Hair by Elaine was on duty definitely  the most popular choice by Kilkenny Brides, I’m also looking forward been her videographer later this year.
Sarah’s morning preps are included in the highlights video, she was a fun and positive  Bride to work with as the song says it was begging to look like a beautiful day.

St Joseph’s Church Foulkstown
is to be found on the Waterford Road, just outside of Kilkenny city. Surrounded by a graveyard the church has an old feel. The inside of the church is plainly decorated but kept in immaculate condition. There is enough seating for a congregation of roughly 180 wedding guests. There is some extra seating on either side of the altar. A choir balcony is located at the rear of the church which is ideal for the wedding singers/music
The curch was full to capacity  for Sarah and David’s ceremony, space was tight for shooting video  my camera setup consisted of a static cam up on the gallery and a mobile  cam on a monopod at the top of the church, the couple decided to not to have the traditional greeting line at the church door allowing more time for the photo shoot.

Tips
Budgeting for your  video is a popular topic, my advice  is to budget for video from the very beginning. In the past  couples would leave the videographer  out of the  budget list  now with the increase in quality  the attitudes towards video have changed now video is on a par with wedding photography

Kilkenny Castle is without doubt one of the most recognised landmarks in Kilkenny and with good reason. The mature parklands and stunning forested areas are the ultimate backdrop to any wedding video. Picture yourself and your new bride or groom seated in the formal terraced rose garden or on the banks of the wonderful lake with your bridal party beside you for the ultimate in photography and wedding video footage.

Woodstock House and Gardens Kilkenny

Situated just one kilometre from the town of Inistioge, Woodstock House and Gardens is a firm favourite with our brides and grooms. The restored walled gardens and the views across the River Nore Valley are absolutely breath-taking and always look great in wedding videos and photos. Take a walk through the terraced garden or rose garden and enjoy the wonderful surroundings as we work our magic and capture the moment on video for you to remember long into the future.

Kilfane Waterfall and Glen
Is there anything more magical than a waterfall in the lush green Irish countryside? Many of our brides and grooms ask us to recommend backdrops for wedding videography and photography and as one of our top choices (weather dependent), we will always encourage couples to visit Kilfane Waterfall and Glen. Perhaps take a stroll there yourself this springtime, when the leaves are just starting to appear on the trees and experience the wonder of the area first hand. You won’t be disappointed!

Jenkinstown

Whether you want to capture some images or photos in the woodland or at the old house in Jenkinstown Park, you can be assured that this area is the perfect backdrop to set the tone for your big day.

Wedding fairs can also help to save money  because many suppliers will  be offering  discounts if you book them on the spot,  do your research before you go and find out which suppliers will be there, then if there are discounts on offer on the day, you can make the most of them knowing that the supplier in question is the right for for you and your wedding.
