These wedding fairs and venue showcases are a great source of inspiration for many of the couples we meet and can really help with the planning of your big day.

Here we are now   that time of year again with wedding fairs and open days taking place every weekend , if you’re recently engaged, you will looking forward to attending as many as possible.
Making time to visit wedding fairs  in the early stages of planning your wedding, is definitely worthwhile   meeting suppliers face to face is better than shopping online. Another reason to visit wedding fairs, especially  those taking  place at your chosen wedding venue,  you will get to see spaces dressed for weddings which will give you an idea of what works for you on the 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.

Review of 2019, Drangan Video Tipperary

As a Tipperary based wedding video professional, I have for over 25 years had the pleasure of capturing wedding videos for wonderful couples right across Tipperary and Kilkenny. 2019 proved to be a very busy year and for this the team at Drangan Video are extremely grateful. Being a part of your big day and providing you with a beautiful memento of your celebrations is truly important to us.

In a year when our beloved Stone Throwers brought home the Liam McCarthy Cup for the 27th time, we celebrated with the rest of the county and captured many blue and yellow themed weddings across Tipperary. What a wonderful year for the Premier County!

In 2019 I had the pleasure of meeting many couples from Tipperary, Kilkenny and beyond and spent countless hours filming the special moments of these big days. It goes without saying that each and every one of these occasions was unique in its own way and brought me just as much pleasure as it did the guests and families of the brides and grooms. When I look back on 2019, I am struck by the ingenuity and creativeness of the couples I worked with. The décor, the styles, the planning and the entertainment was second to none and our couples deserve some real kudos for their planning prowess.

2019 brought some challenges with the weather at times, both for us and for our wonderful couples. However, hail, rain, snow or shine, it never impacted on the celebrations for the big day. One of my favourite parts of wedding videography is overcoming these weather challenges and we always come prepared for every eventuality. With more red and orange weather warnings than we’ve ever experienced in a calendar year, 2019 really gave us something to get our teeth into and has given us the opportunity to explore different techniques, embracing the weather on the day to provide spectacular footage! So whether you’re organising a wedding in December, March or July, don’t let the weather dictate your plans – we’ll find our way around every situation to deliver the perfect wedding video.

When we are lucky enough to be a part of your wedding, knowing that you have chosen us spurs us on even more to deliver all of your special moments wrapped up in the form of the very best wedding video we can deliver.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the couples we have worked with this year and wish you all a very happy Christmas on your first year as a married couple.

Are you ready for your Christmas Wedding?

It’s that time of the year again when we are looking forward to working with our Christmas brides and grooms. Over the last decade we have seen a huge upsurge in couples tying the knot over the festive period and it’s become something of a tradition for us to dedicate a blog post to these seasonal ceremonies.

Christmas Weddings In Tipperary

Whether you’re opting for a church wedding, a civil ceremony or an alternative occasion to celebrate your love, there’s one thing that’s certain and that is you can never be fully prepared for all that December has to offer. As I write this blog post the sun is shining as strongly as it would in August, however there’s a chill in the air that tells us we need to wrap up extra warm before we go to film this weeks wedding videos. December is a month for all seasons, you may get sunshine, you may even get snow but you need to be prepared for all eventualities.

For those of you who are tying the knot this December and New Year, here’s a handy little checklist that will help you prepare for any last minute weather changes.

• Stock up on umbrellas – You can never have too many spare umbrellas available on your big day. Ask the best man and any willing family members to collect as many umbrellas as they can from family and friends and have them ready in the boot of a car for those who have come to the ceremony unprepared.
• Allow for extra travel time – While you may be only a ten-minute drive from the ceremony location, it’s important that you allow yourself double the travel time at least to ensure there are no lengthy delays. December weather in Ireland can bring icy roads, high winds and spot flooding so you’ll want to ensure you and your guests get to the venue without any problems.
• Keep warm – Speak to your venue about extra heating for any outdoor areas and perhaps provide some wraps, blankets and warm throws for your guests who may venture outside for a cigarette or a breath of fresh air.
• Welcome drinks – December is the perfect time of year for mulled wine, hot cider, Irish coffees and hot whiskey. Why not treat your guests to a warming drink upon arrival at your reception venue to get them in the holiday spirit.
• Provide transport – Travelling in adverse weather conditions can be a daunting task for many drivers and it may be a deciding factor on whether they can make it to your wedding ceremony. Consider hiring a mini-bus to collect and drop guests along a pre-agreed route to your venue and on to the reception if they’re in different locations. This will allow your guests to relax and enjoy the celebrations without having to worry about how they’ll get home later.

The Perfect Flowers for your Winter Wedding

Here at Drangan Video, we have been blessed to film hundreds of winter weddings over our 25 years in business. During this time, we have learned a lot about special touches, unique décor and inspired themes from our brides and grooms and we love nothing more than sharing them with our readers.

In this blog post we are going to look at some of the most wonderful winter wedding flowers, that are sure to add a touch of magic to your décor, bouquets and boutonnieres.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the winter months in Ireland don’t offer a lot of options in the floral department, after all our climate doesn’t encourage all year round flowering! However, there are some real floral gems to be found in our gardens, hedgerows, countryside and of course with our wonderful Irish florists. Take a look at the list below and envisage the perfect winter bouquet with these special blooms and foliage.

Eucalyptus

Whilst not native to Ireland, the eucalyptus can now be found on virtually every corner you turn. The silvery/blue tint and minty aroma is perfect to fill out any winter wedding bouquet. Add eucalyptus to your table centrepieces too for an extra touch of something special.

Berries

Take a ramble in your local countryside to avail of some of the most wonderful winter colours available in Ireland. Whether you opt for holly or hypericum berries, you can be assured that these will look wonderful in any floral arrangements, bouquets or centrepieces.

Pine Cones

Bouquets and centrepieces don’t have to be made up entirely of flowers and foliage. As with berries, pinecones, nuts and other winter fruits can add something really special to your décor and floral arrangements.

Spices

This may seem like an odd one, but stick with us! Cinnamon and star anise just smell like winter right? Think about adding one or two of each to your winter bouquet by attaching to a length of wire, the sweet, comforting smell will add a touch of warmth to your big day.

Roses

It goes without saying, that roses are one of the most popular choices for bridal bouquets, however they can be expensive at this time of the year, especially if you’re looking for red. Talk with your florist about the options available to you and perhaps opt for more subtle colours such as romantic pinks, creams and whites to enhance your arrangement.

Pine

The smell of fresh pine is one of the most wonderful winter scents we have come across, and it’s absolutely abundant in our countryside, towns and villages. No need to pay a fortune when we have such incredible foliage available outside our doors.
