Wedding Videographer Tipperary – Kilkenny

Next year, Drangan Video will be celebrating 25 years in business, capturing weddings up and down the country for hundreds of wonderful brides and grooms. Over these past 25 years we have been blessed to film weddings in every county in Ireland and we very much look forward to continuing our work for another 25 years!

Drangan Video Tipperary and Kilkenny

In this article, we’re going to tell you a bit about what makes Drangan Video so special and why we believe brides and grooms choose us to capture every moment of their big day.

Since our inception in 1995, we have seen huge changes in the world of wedding videography, particularly in the technology we use and the trend towards a more subtle approach to filming your wedding. Drangan Video have adapted to and in many cases, led these changes in approach and style.

One of the best compliments we can get from any bride or groom is ‘We didn’t even know you were there’! This tells us that we have done our job correctly. Our hands-off approach means we never interfere with the running of your day and film from the sidelines without ever infringing on the celebrations. We also work extremely well with photographers, recognizing that they are limited by time and circumstance and don’t want a videographer disrupting their work in any way. We let the photographer take centre stage, never infringing on their space.

Our approach to wedding videography can be described as ‘documentary style’ and we strive to capture every moment of your day in a way that is natural, discrete and free from interruption. This approach allows us to take footage that may otherwise be overlooked – a loving glance between father and bride or special moments between those who know you best. This results in a true documentation of your wedding, allowing you to see the little things that would normally go unnoticed.

Another reason brides and grooms choose us for their wedding videography is our central location. Based in Co. Tipperary, our central location allows us to offer wedding videography in every county in Ireland. We don’t charge extra for distance travelled and always get to know the venue and area before the big day.
One of the newest additions to our wedding video offering is drone videography and photography. Our state of the art drone allows us to capture unique footage of your big day from a perspective that is absolutely breathtaking. Picture our aerial footage of your home or venue along with the guests arriving to the wedding ceremony. We are truly blessed in Ireland to enjoy such wonderful landscapes and scenery and there’s no reason why this incredible backdrop shouldn’t be featured on your beautifully crafted wedding video.

Last Minute Tips for your Summer Wedding

Are you getting married this summer? Well first of all let us wish you a hearty congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! In this article we are going to go through some last minute tips and checks that will ensure everything runs smoothly on your big day.

Summer Weddings Kilkenny

At the moment, it looks like the forecast ahead is pretty positive, temperatures are on the up and we’re finally starting to see some of that sunshine that evaded us for most of May and June. With that in mind, you may want to see some of our last minute tips that will ensure you and your guests remain cool, comfortable and relaxed for the duration of the ceremony and celebrations.

Extra Boutonnieres

You know those lovely button hole flowers that the bridal party wear for the day? If you are expecting soaring temperatures on the day of the wedding, then it may be a good idea to ask your florist to prepare extra to cover heat damage and withering.

Outdoor Area

If you have not already done so, it’s a good idea to contact your venue and ask them if they can provide some outdoor space for your wedding party. Whether that’s a dedicated marquee area for you and your guests or a section of the garden where guests can enjoy some fresh air in the warm evening.

Welcome Drinks

There is absolutely no doubt that your guests would be delighted to be welcomed with a cool, refreshing drink upon arrival at your venue. Ask the hotel/caterers or venue to provide a range of iced juices and fruit for the arrival of your guests.

Goodies Hamper

Whilst you may have already prepared hampers for the ladies and men’s rooms in your venues, it may be worth adding the following to your list to ensure everyone remains comfortable for the duration of the day:

1. Deodorant
2. Flip-flops
3. Face wipes
4. Insect repellent
5. SPF 50
6. Sunglasses
7. Fans

Parasols

If you are hoping to spend a lot of time outdoors on your big day, it is essential that you make your guests as comfortable as possible. Ask the venue to provide you with any large parasols they have onsite or bring your own decorated with ribbons, bows and fairy lights to add something extra special. These parasols will provide shelter from the sun when it’s at its highest and will provide some welcome shade for all ages.

Mount Juliet and why we love it!

Here at Drangan Video we have been privileged to provide wedding video services to brides and grooms right across the country. Every one of these weddings has been unique and special and without exception, the venues have always gone above and beyond to provide couples with everything they needed on their big day.

Weddings In Mount Juliet Kilkenny

There is however one very special venue that stands out to us, due to its location, the setting, decor and dedication to making every wedding as special as it can be. In this blog post we are going to focus on Mount Juliet in County Kilkenny and provide our readers with our own insight into what makes this venue so incredibly special.

Over the past 25 years we have filmed quite a few weddings at this venue and have always been taken aback by the changes, improvements and general setting of the location. Here are just a few of the reasons why we believe Mount Juliet in Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s most perfect wedding venues:

5* Luxury

In March of this year, the Mount Juliet Estate was awarded 5* by Fáilte Ireland, one of only 42 venues in Ireland that now hold this prestigious ranking. This 5* ranking is reserved for only the most luxurious hotels and Fáilte Ireland are quite reserved about handing them out, this is a clear acknowledgement of the very high standards we have witnessed time and time again.

Wedding Reception Kilkenny
Choice of Accommodation

The Mount Juliet Estate offers a choice to guests by way of a 32 bedroom Georgian manor house and the 93 bedroom ‘Hunters Yard’ hotel. Both of these properties are furnished lavishly but offer 2 distinct experiences. The rooms at ‘Hunters Yard’ offer a more modern twist on luxury and feel slightly more laid back than the Georgian manor, however if you’re in the mood for something a little more regal, the Georgian manor house is definitely the way to go. We love that these two properties give our brides and grooms an incredible choice on their big day.

The Grounds

As professional wedding videographers we love nothing more than filming in the 500-acre estate that surrounds Mount Juliet. The perfectly manicured gardens, meadows, parkland and wooded area make it a videographer and photographers dream!

The Location

Situated just a short 20 minute drive from Kilkenny city, this location is perfect for those travelling from all corners of the country.

Over the coming months we are going to look at some more of our favourite venues and would love to hear from you about your special day and the venue that made it extra special for you and your guests.

Things you might not have considered on your Wedding Day

In this blog post, we are going to address some items you may not have considered in the planning process for your big day. Already think you have everything covered? Perhaps have a read through our tips; hopefully we’ll have mentioned something you will find helpful on the day!

Wedding Planning Kilkenny

1. What do I do with my engagement ring prior to the ceremony?
Did you know that it’s tradition to wear your engagement ring on your right hand on the day of the wedding? Once you have exchanged rings at the ceremony you can then move the engagement ring back to the ring finger on your left hand for the reception and celebrations.

2. Who is responsible for lifting the bride’s veil during the ceremony?
If you’re a stickler for tradition, then you have two options here. If you are being ‘given away’ or accompanied up the aisle by someone dear to you, you can have them lift your veil when you reach your intended. Alternatively, you can ask your fiancé to lift your veil when the ceremony begins.

3. Left or right?
What sides of the aisle do the bride and groom stand? If you’re opting for a church wedding, tradition stipulates if you are standing facing the altar, the bride stands on the left and the groom on the right. It’s important to note though that you can stand wherever you like at any non-religious ceremony.

4. Can I have a catholic ceremony without the mass?
This may come as a surprise to many, but the answer is yes! Perhaps you want to shorten the time spent in church for any number of reasons. You may have family that are not religious, or you and your partner may be of different religious beliefs. This option to marry within the church without the accompanying mass is an option that not many couples are aware of. Speak to your local clergy for more information on this option.

5. Does our chosen venue allow us to take photographs during the ceremony?
It’s important that you double check with your venue about their photo policy. In most cases the church or civil ceremony venue will have no problem with photographers doing their thing during the ceremony but you could get a surprise on the day if you don’t ask in advance. Some churches may have a ‘no photo’ policy, so it’s important that you know this before finalizing your booking.
6. Disability Access
In most cases, venues across Ireland today will be fully equipped for those who may need special assistance on the day. If you or one of your guests has a wheelchair or requires alternative arrangement, it’s important to speak with your venue in advance to confirm they can be accommodated.

Questions for the Wedding Cake Baker

In this blog post we’re going to talk about the wedding cake and the questions you should be asking the baker before making your purchase. Over the years we have seen a huge change in wedding cake trends, from traditional 3 or 4 tier cakes painstakingly iced with lace detail to cupcakes, chocolate cakes and even cakes made solely of wheels of cheese! The questions we ask below, should allow you to make an informed decision on the type of cake you want and ensure that you know what you’re getting well in advance of the big day.

Wedding Planning Tipperary

Can the baker give you samples to try?
You don’t buy a car without test-driving it and you certainly don’t spend hundreds (sometimes thousands) of Euros on a cake if you haven’t tasted the merchandise first! Ask the baker if they can give you some sample cakes to take away and taste at home with your loved one before you make that all important decision.

Can you do this?
You may have seen a cake elsewhere that really caught your eye, whether at a friends wedding or on social media. If you really have your heart set on a certain type of cake, we would advise you to provide as many images to your baker as possible. They should be able to tell you immediately whether they can accommodate your request.

When is the cake baked?
This is one of the most important questions you need to ask your baker. You will want to ensure your cake is as fresh as possible when you and your guests tuck in! In most cases, the cake will be baked approx. a week before the wedding, if it’s baked any earlier it can be ‘too’ fresh and difficult to ice. However, making the baker aware that you want your cake to be as fresh as possible is always a good idea.

Kilkenny Wedding Cake

What kind of delivery service do you offer?
Let’s assume your wedding is on a weekend and the reception is taking place more than 20km from the baker’s premises. Can they deliver directly to the venue for you on the morning of the wedding or the night before? If not, can they provide you with a delivery option? What is the cost of delivery? Make sure you ask these questions well in advance to avoid any last minute panic!

Is the price negotiable?
If you don’t ask, you don’t get, right? Never be afraid to ask the baker if this is their best price, even a small discount can make a difference to your wedding budget!

Other helpful information:

• Does the baker have a portfolio they can show you?
• Are references or testimonials available on their website?
• Check out the baker’s social media page to see what previous customers have to say.
• Maybe you want more than one type of cake? Ask your baker about different flavours for different tiers of your cake.
• If you opt for cupcakes, make sure order more than needed to ensure everyone enjoying your celebrations gets a full cupcake.
• Agree on a final price including delivery with your baker. Make sure to ask if there are any extra charges so you can budget for these in advance.
