Wedding Videography Trends in 2018

Over the past number of years, we have seen some fabulous wedding video trends emerge and it certainly looks like they are here to stay. Have a look at the list below and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, do make sure you get in touch so we can accommodate you in any way we can.

Wedding Videography Trends 2018

Some of the most popular trends in recent years look to stand the test of time.

Wedding Video Guestbook
Instead of asking your guests to sign a traditional guest book that will most likely sit in a drawer gathering dust over the next few decades, why not ask them to participate in a video guestbook.

The team here at Drangan Video will be happy to set up our equipment in a discreet location of your venue and speak with guests who wish to leave you a video message on your happy day.

Wedding Bloopers
A trend that will have you and your loved ones laughing long into the future. In times past, these wonderful snippets would have ended up on the cutting room floor, never to be seen or mentioned again! With Drangan Video however, we can compile and little ‘slip-ups’ or funny moments into a fun, memorable compilation for you to enjoy with your friends, family and loved ones.

Combining Video and Photography
Still photography shots included in your wedding video can make a truly wonderful impact when integrated by a professional editor like Eamon. Make your wedding video a little bit different whilst never missing a moment of the day.

The First Look
This trend has been quite popular for a number of years now and looks set to become a permanent feature of the wedding video and photograph album.

Before the ceremony, before all the guests see the bride and groom, we take them somewhere special where they get to see each other in all their finery for the very first time. This moment is captured forever on video and is incredibly special for the couple who then go on to the venue to exchange their vows.

Drone Footage
Drangan Video works closely with a fully licensed drone photographer to provide you with aerial footage on your big day. Perhaps you would like an impressive group shot on the grounds of your venue or in a location that holds a special place in your heart? Aerial/drone footage is one of the most exciting additions to the wedding memory box and we love nothing more than a trend that really makes an impact like this.

As you can see from the list above, the list of wedding videography trends just keeps on growing. Last year it was all about the choreographed wedding dance video, which is still hugely popular, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on emerging trends for inspiration and ideas for your big day.

Whether you require traditional wedding videography, documentary style or drone footage, the team here at Drangan Video will be delighted to assist you on your big day. Get in touch with Eamon today to learn more about the video style that is perfect for your wedding.

Important Decisions when planning your Wedding

For those of you who have just gotten engaged and are looking forward to planning your big day, let us first say a very hearty congratulations to you and your loved one. In this blog post we are going to look at the very first (and most important) decisions you need to make to get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Checking your wedding planning list
What type of Wedding would you like?

One of the very first things you should discuss as a couple is what type of wedding you would like. Would you like to get married in a registry office, a favourite hotel, on a sandy beach in the sun or through a religious ceremony in your local church or temple? This is probably the most important decision you will make and once you have decided, then everything else is full steam ahead!

Are you going to celebrate your Engagement with a Party?

More and more couples are opting for engagement celebrations these days and we certainly agree that it’s a great way to celebrate your love and get started with the wedding planning process. Whether you opt for a low-key family affair or decide to splash out on a weekend of celebrations, how you celebrate is totally up to you. Some couples opt to share a meal with family and postpone the real celebrations for the big day. Whatever the choice you make, we’re sure you’ll have the very best time.

Planning the perfect wedding day
Decide on Potential Wedding Dates

Not that you have celebrated your engagement and decided on the type of ceremony you would like to have, it’s time to get down to the business of deciding a date. We would recommend choosing a number of dates that would work for you; this will give you more options when booking venues. Keep in mind that a mid-week wedding will give you far more value for money and will keep the budget down considerably. Once you move into weekend or bank holiday territory you can add thousands to the cost of your day and also increase costs for guests who may want to stay at your venue of choice.

Explore a Number of Venues.

Whether you require one venue or two, it is vitally important that you start exploring your options as soon as you possibly can. Hotel and wedding venues can book up quite fast during the summer months, so if you are planning a summer wedding make sure you get planning as early as possible.

Wedding preparations save the date
Choosing the Bridal Party

Time to sit down and decide firstly, how many individuals will make up your bridal party.

• Bridesmaids – how many and who.
• Groomsmen – how many and who.
• Maid of Honour
• Best Man
• Paige Boy
• Flower Girl

Paige boys and flower girls are not a necessity, however if you have some special children in your life that you would like to be part of your big day, then this could be a way to make them feel incredibly special.

More important decisions:

• Put a firm budget in place.
• Plan your guest list.
• Should you find yourself busy with work or other commitments, it may be an idea to hire a wedding planner at this early stage.

Wedding planning tips and advice

Once the big decisions have been made, you can then proceed with contacting wedding suppliers and vendors to make your special day a day to remember.

The Cashel Palace Hotel

In June of 2017 we learned that the historic Cashel Palace Hotel was to undergo redevelopment under the investment of the Magnier Family (of Coolmore Stud) and Teo Ah King a Chinese business tycoon. This announcement was welcomed throughout the county of Tipperary and will be a huge boost to the local economy and wedding industry. For those of you who have recently gotten engaged and are hoping to celebrate your big day in 5* luxury, we imagine the Cashel Palace Hotel will be THE venue that ticks all the boxes.

Cashel Palace Hotel New Wedding Venue

According to latest reports, the hotel is set to reopen in late 2019, this may seem like a long wait, but I’d put money on the fact that it will be worth it!

The plans for the hotel include 60 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, 2 onsite restaurants, a hotel bar, world class leisure centre and of course a function room that will no doubt play host to the most wonderful celebrations this country has ever seen. The project also looks to reinstate the renowned ‘Bishops Walk’ and will include a 3-acre town park, which we are really excited to learn more about.

About the site:
The Palace itself was originally built in the 1730’s and features a breath-taking Queen Anne and early Georgian architectural design. Before they moved to Waterford, the building was initially the home of the Church of Ireland Archbishops. Cashel Palace is situated on a 25-acre site and the grounds lie adjacent to the world famous Rock of Cashel which, can be accessed from the hotel grounds via one of the private gardens.

The hotel ceased trading in 2014 and was purchased by John Magnier in 2016 for 2.25 million Euros. The original resort consisted of the Bolton Library, the coach house and a gate lodge and we really can’t wait to see how these have been preserved to fit in with the new renovations.

Famous Faces at the Cashel Palace Hotel.

Over the decades, the Cashel Palace has played host to some of Hollywood’s elite as well as US dignitaries, world leaders and politicians. Some of the most notable visits were by Ronald Reagan, Richard Burton, Jacqueline Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor. The hotels’ association with excellence has always been its selling point and we have no doubt that they will strive to keep with this tradition in the future.

Cashel and it’s surrounds have much to offer the modern bride and groom, with most venues now offering civil weddings and a host of onsite services, there is no longer a need to travel between venues on your big day. The team here at Drangan Video love nothing more than travelling to Cashel to film wedding videos for our special couples. The town and surrounding area features magnificent scenery and backdrops for the most stunning photography and video shoots. We are on tenterhooks waiting for the opening of the Cashel Palace Hotel and can’t wait to step inside to provide our wedding videography services in the very near future.
