The moments you want your photographer to catch – weddings 2017

On what will no doubt be the most important day of your life so far, you will want to ensure that each and every meaningful moment is captured at it’s very best. It is with this in mind that we have put together a list for you to discuss with your photographer before the big day. Some of the moments listed below may not be essential for your and your intended, so feel free to pick and choose from these and add your own special moments.

Engagement Photo’s

Many wedding photographers will offer an all-inclusive package that will give you the opportunity to memorialise your engagement as well as your big day. This is the perfect opportunity to see how your photographer works and visualise how your wedding photographs are going to look. It’s also a good time to ask questions about style, positioning and lighting.

Photographs on the morning of the wedding

On the morning of the wedding there will be limitless opportunities for breathtaking photos whilst you are preparing for your vows, this applies for both the bride and the groom. Here are just some of the most popular morning or preparation photographs we see our brides and grooms ask for:

• Bridal bouquet photo,
• Dress, veil and wedding shoes photographs,
• Images of the bride and her bridal party getting hair and makeup done,
• Family portraits in the home or in your garden if the weather permits,
• Father and groom images are always wonderful images to catch, especially if Dad is assisting his son with a tie or cufflinks,
• Leaving the family home and entering the wedding car on the journey to the church or ceremony venue.

Journey to the ceremony venue

On the way to the venue, you may want to get photo’s of your family or bridal party as they get into the cars or leave the family home.
Some brides will also opt to have a photo along the route with their bridesmaids or parents, if so, this should be timed to ensure it does not delay the bride getting to the ceremony on time.

During the Ceremony
There will of course be many photo opportunities during the wedding ceremony itself; however, you may want to speak to your photographer about moments that meant the most to you. Perhaps there are certain family members that you want photographs of whilst they undertake a reading or sing a song.

• Shots of the ceremony venue before the guests arrive, so you can see how well the décor and flower arrangements were set up.

• Arrival of the bride and groom and accompanying bridal and grooms parties.

• Arrival of the immediate family and guests as they enter the grounds of the venue or church.

• Bridal entrance with father of the bride or chosen partner.

• The moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time.

• Photos of any children at the venue such as flower girls or pageboys.

• The most important moments will of course be captured such as the exchanging of vows, the lighting of candles and the exchange of rings, your first kiss and the signing of the register.

After the  Wedding Ceremony

Traditionally, after the ceremony brides and grooms will want to go with their bridal party and have photos taken in a location of their choice. It is imperative that you plan a number of different options in advance in order to accommodate the changeable Irish weather.

If your photographer is travelling to the reception venue after the ceremony, ensure you get all the images you have dreamt of by discussing your wishes with the photographer well in advance.

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.

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.

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.

Autumn Wedding In Kilkenny

October 1st 2016 was a beautiful warm sunny day in Kilkenny, one wedding guest described the beautiful spell of weather as an Indian summer.
I am delighted to be finally getting around to sharing the following  highlights from Galia and Emmet’s wedding video

Video coverage of the day began at Galia’s parents house  situated in Cellarstown, Kilkenny it is only a ten minute drive from Kilkenny city.
My style of  video recording is totally laid back and easygoing, many Kilkenny brides have commented on my  unobtrusive and hands off approach to capturing their special day, I received a nice message from Galia and Emmet saying that they are delighted with their wedding video and barely noticed the camera during the day.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. John’s Church which is situated near McDonagh Junction and Kilkenny, it is a beautiful old church with gorgeous architecture and stunning design. It has huge  ceilings and a purely peaceful, captivating beauty!  I Would recommend stopping off seeing this if you are in Kilkenny.

After the ceremony we went back to Galia’s house for the photo shoot, the house and gardens were in top class condition which was testament to weeks of hard work by a very proud Mum and Dad.

Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel

Galia and Emmet enjoyed a fab wedding reception in the Kilkenny ­Ormonde Hotel which is Kilkenny’s number one 4 star city centre wedding venue. It is located within walking distance of  Kilkenny Castle and Medieval Rothe House.
The staff are always friendly and helpful and their efficent attention to detail is one of the many positive  hallmarks The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel.

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.
