Local Wedding Video In Drangan Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary we just love local weddings, every year we  are fortunate to provide videography for so many weddings  in Tipperary, Kilkenny and many other counties ,  thanks to all the happy couples past and future  that have said yes to us as their preferred choice of  wedding videographer.
In this week’s  blog news  we are  delighted to be featuring a very local wedding that of Catherine Maher and Tom Kennedy,  the Maher family are our  closest  neighbours, just a 3 min drive from our studio in Drangan  it was my shortest journey ever to a bridal preps  location.

Catherine is the youngest and the only girl in  a family of four, the photo that she is holding is that of her late Mum and Dad,  it was a morning of mixed emotions for this beautiful  young Bride  to be. Catherine’s older brothers have always looked out for her, they pulled out all the stops for her big day on Saturday May 6th 2017 leaving no stone unturned in making it the happiest day of  her life.
The Maher family were so friendly and welcoming,  cups of tea, snacks and cakes were a slight distraction for the videographer. When the Bride was dressed and ready she stopped off at the old family farm house for photos with her brothers, Catherine has happy memories of the old homestead and her parents.

Drangan Village/ Drangan Video

When  we set up our videography business  one  of the first tasks was choosing a company name  for  our new  business venture, we decided to call it after our local village, we are proud to be keeping our small village on the map with our company  brand name.
The church of the Immaculate Conception is situated smack bang in the middle of  Drangan, the Archway Bar is only a two minute walk from the church  so no prize given for figuring out where to find Tom and the boys, it was another nice opportunity to grab nice pre -ceremony footage for the wedding film

The wedding ceremony was celebrated by Fr. Tony Lambe, it was a nice ceremony Fr. Tony’s light hearted approach helped to keep the  slightly nervous bride and groom calm a relaxed throughout, Andrea Ruth Houlihan provided the church music and singing, her amazing voice filled every corner of the crowed church. Tom is a proud follower of Tipperary Hurling he hails from Carrick On Suir and plays  hurling with his local GAA club,  Catherine and Tom now mr. and mrs. Kennedy were greeted by an  archway of clattering hurls formed by Tom’s team mates ,  its always a moment worth capturing on video.

Edmund Rice Heritage Centre Callan Kilkenny

We stopped off the Edmund Rice Heritage Centre , Wescourt Callan, for the photo shoot with the bridal party.
Blessed Edmund Rice was the founder of the Christian Brothers and Presentation Brothers.
The thatched house at “Westcourt”, Callan, Co. Kilkenny in which Edmund was born  is almost 300 years old. The perfectly preserved house consists of six rooms a kitchen, parlour, breakfast room and three bedrooms. The grounds surrounding  the house are  lovely  for wedding video and photo shoots, we got some great video shots with Catherine and Tom, just natural relaxed footage of a couple very much  in love and enjoying their first hours as husband and wife.

Winter Fairytale Wedding Tipperary

In this week’s wedding blog I am delighted and proud to be sharing  the wedding of Susan Tannock who is from Australia and Chris Bracken from Littleton, Thurles  who were marring in Holy Cross Abbey Tipperary  on December 30th 2017, the happy couple enjoyed a splendid wedding reception in the ever  popular Anner Hotel. The town of Thurles  is the home of the GAA and has hosted many big match days in Semple Stadium but none  more  important as Chris and Susan’s love match.

Here in Tipperary and Kilkenny  more and more couples are opting for off season  weddings ,   Winter can be a romantic time of year with  fairy lights and the  excitement of Christmas  in the air.
when  planning  a summer wedding  you are feeling confident about  the weather but let’s  not forget it is Ireland after all. In winter, although its  certain that there will be no heat, or sun  at least you know what to expect  and won’t get caught out.

Chris and Susan’s Winter Fairytale Wedding

The  Anner Hotel is situated just outside Thurles on the Two-Mile Borris  road,  resting on its own  private grounds with  tastefully kept  gardens and pathways.  Over the years the  four star  hotel   has increased in size offering a host of modern amenities, it is now one of the top wedding venues catering for Tipperary and Kilkenny wedding receptions. Chris and Susan’s wedding video story began at 10:30 in the hotel wedding suite  with coverage of the bridal preps.  December 30th was a very cold day  a rather  big shock for the Aussies who were leaving  their sunny warm summer behind,  the pressure of preparations did help to  keep  temperatures  rising for the girls.

Happy Wedding Video Holy Cross Abbey Thurles Tipperary

Holy Cross Abbey wast the couple’s choice of wedding ceremony location,  the beautifully restored Monastic site and Church from the 12th century  looked stunning in the low angled  December sunshine.  The Abbey is a working church  it is a popular location for  wedding ceremonies  it is steeped in history  if those walls could only speak of times gone by ? the aisle has a natural  slope towards the altar to help you tie the knot!

Susan her Dad and  the girls arrived  on time in a beautifully restored VW camper Van, the rumble of the German engineered engine was certainly  a step back in time for the older guests, there is something special about a colorful  wedding camper van, a couple of quick photos of Susan and her Dad then it was time to begin the long  walk  up the aisle to take Chris’s hand in matrimony .
The church was lovely and warm due to the recently installed underfloor heating providing a welcome break from a biting winter chill.

Fairytale winter wedding in Tipperary

Susan and Chris were a lovey couple to work with they were so relaxed and easygoing, they have already shared the highlights video on facebook it  has been receiving glowing reviews on our Drangan Video page.

On this wonderful island of ours we are truly blessed with some of the most magnificent coastal locations on the planet. It’s no wonder our brides and grooms regularly head to the coast to celebrate their big day! In this blog post we are going to cover some of our personal favourite coastal locations for wedding videography.

Wedding videographer Ardmore Waterford
Ardmore, Co. Waterford

Situated in the sunny southeast, Ardmore, Co. Waterford is one of our favourite places to shoot wedding videos. Ardmore is steeped in history and the cliffs, harbour and local beaches make it the perfect destination for any wedding. For those of you who love the sea air, the breeze in your hair and views that are absolutely breathtaking, we can wholly recommend Ardmore for a day to remember.

Galway County has a something to offer everyone, regardless of taste or budget.
