Wedding Video Memories Ciara and Philip Ballyneale Tipperary

My new year got off to a flying start with a local wedding in Ballyneale Co. Tipperary, it was the final wedding from a group of back to back wedding bookings covering Waterford, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Carlow.  Ciara & Philip were lucky with the weather the day was dry but a bit on the cold side, they were a lovely warm friendly couple to work with making my job as wedding videographer  enjoyable  and easy.

Ciara and Philip went for the Diamond Package which covers the full day from bridal preps and continuing  up to 11pm that evening, it is the package of choice by Brides in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford and Carlow.
The wedding got to a lively start, beginning with bridal preps at Ciara’s parents house. Ballyneale is situated between Grangemockler and the famous town of Carrick-On-Suir.

Since starting out  as Tipperary based wedding videographer I have had the pleasure of recording numerous  wedding videos in and around the historic town and country side of Carrick-on-Suir.

Mahon Falls: A breath taking wedding video/photo venue;
Mahon falls is a must see for all visitors to the area. This area provides breathtaking sights in the most tranquil of settings. As well as the magnificent waterfall visitors are also treated to an experience which can only be described as magical, which is described below. This drive from Carrick-on-Suir offers some sensational views of the mountains, and the many high viewing points on the way provide excellent panoramas over the green countryside below.

The Old Bridge : A wonderful historic back drop for a wedding video
The Old Bridge is situated at the end of Bridge Street, off the Main Street. This seven arched bridge dates back to the mid 15th. Century. It predates the voyage of Columbus to the New World. Originally built in c.1447 by Edmund MacRichard Butler it was for centuries the first bridge above the estuary and hence strategically important as a link between south Leinster and east Munster

Ormond Castle Carrick-on-Suir : A superd location for wedding  video shoots
This castle of the Butlers – Earls and later Dukes of Ormond – stands above the Suir on the east side of Carrick. It was acquired in 1315, though the oldest part of the castle is a mid-fifteenth-century walled bawn with a tower house in each of its northern corners.

Enough about history and back to Ciara and Philip, their wedding ceremony was celebrated by Fr. Pat Gere who happens to my favorite wedding day celebrant, his wedding ceremonies are fun and spiritual and he makes Bride & Groom and guests feel  relaxed. After the wedding ceremony we made our way to Kilkenny stopping off in Callan for photos.

The Edmond Rice Heritage Centre Callan:  is a magical place for capturing stunning wedding video footage.
The thatched house at “Westcourt”, Callan, Co. Kilkenny in which Edmund was born on 1 June 1762, is almost 300 years old. The six roomed house consists of a kitchen, parlour, breakfast room and three bedrooms. Of particular interest is the bedroom in which Edmund Rice was born.
Ciara & Philip’s wedding video features stunning shots of  a relaxed if not slightly cold bridal party strolling around the  grounds at Wescourt through the shadows  January sunshine.

Our final destination was the the Kilkenny River Court Hotel With its unique backdrop overlooking Kilkenny Castle on the banks of the River Nore it is one of the finest wedding hotels in Ireland.
As a wedding videographer I have covered all types of weddings in the River Court, From small traditional celebrations, civil ceremonies, civil partnerships to lavish wedding celebrations.

On arrival Ciara & Philip enjoyed a warm welcome for their guests who were well settled in and enjoying some the River Court’s finest cuisine and beverages.
In my role as wedding videographer the arrival at the reception venue is one of the highlights of my day, its time to break the long fast with a cup of coffee and some tasty bites.
Then it was back to work capturing details  of the decor in the function room, guests chatting and mingling.
The speeches were conducted after the meal  which I  discreetly recorded from a good  distance away  from the top table.

All my video packages include Vox Pops-messages from guests which are done when the band are setting up, it is great fun and very personal.
Ciara & Philip enjoyed  a wonderful wedding reception, bridal party family and friends danced the night away, this was also discreetly captured on the wedding film.

If you are planning on hiring a wedding videographer just get in contact with myself Eamon and I will be happy to discuss recording your wedding video in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford or any county in Ireland.

Fantastic Wedding Venues in Co. Carlow & Co. Waterford

In my heart of hearts, I know I’m a Tipperary wedding videographer – I just love shooting weddings close to home and having an opportunity to capture some of Ireland’s most stunning backdrops. However, I have to admit to getting a bit excited every time I chat with brides and grooms getting married in neighbouring County Carlow or County Waterford. There are some absolutely breathtaking opportunities across the border, and I often forget just how magical these places can really be.

If you’re thinking of getting married in the South East, it’s well worth expanding your search outside of Tipperary and Kilkenny, and looking into some of the fantastic wedding venues in Co. Carlow and Co. Waterford. In Co. Carlow, for example, I love shooting wedding videos with views of the Blackstairs Mountains, or weddings overlooking Mount Leinster. And in Waterford, the Ballindud Mill and Cottage and the grounds of the Waterford Castle provide excellent wedding photo and video opportunities.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work as a wedding videographer in some of the best wedding venues in Co. Carlow and Co. Waterford. Here are two of my favourites that I’ve had the chance to visit recently.

Woodford Dolmen Hotel, County Carlow
Deirdre and Matt asked me to video their wedding in Ireland, to be held at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel which is located just outside Carlow town. Now, I think we can all agree that the Irish weather can be a bit unpredictable at times, especially in the winter, but this wedding venue really shines all year round. On Deirdre and Matt’s big day, things were a little damp and windy, and yet the gardens still looked spectacular, which meant I was able to shoot both inside and outside to really capture everything.

The gardens and surrounds are a real highlight at this venue, which is why many brides and grooms opt to have their wedding at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel. The hotel itself sits amongst 10 acres of riverside land, but the best part for a wedding videographer in Ireland is the hotel’s private bridge. The deep red of the bridge stands out against the lush green backdrop, making it one of my favourite places to shoot wedding footage in the country and that’s saying something! It has to be seen to be believed.

But let’s not overlook the inside of the hotel. There are two ballrooms to choose from: the smaller Killeshin Suite, and the mind blowing Barrow Suite which is actually the largest wedding venue in County Carlow, holding up to 825 guests! Both of the ballrooms have private, attached terraces which means that, come rain or shine, you can really make the most of your wedding venue. Ultimately, if you’re a sucker for romance, this hotel is perfect and I’m looking forward to videoing weddings here more often.
Tower Hotel, County Waterford

I was thrilled to be asked to be Michelle and Gary’s wedding videographer for their wedding at the Tower Hotel in Waterford, right in the bank of the River Suir. If you’re keen to incorporate Irish tradition into your wedding, then this is one of the best venues in Ireland. The hotel has been hosting weddings for more than 50 years, and serves up local foods such as Glin Valley chicken, baked Waterford ham, and goat cheese by Cooleeney Farmhouse Cheese in Tipperary. Yum!

The Tower Hotel will always be a favourite of mine, and I’ve enjoyed shooting wedding videos in both the smaller Dunmore Room and the larger Ardmore Suite over the years. While the surrounding landscape and historic venue are wonderful, I think it’s the little touches that really make this place special. In the cold winters, for example, you can swap your welcome champagne for a warming mug of spiced mulled wine. It’s these little things that really make a difference from a videographer perspective.

Although I love Tipperary, and Tipperary weddings, I have to admit that there are times when you just can’t beat the beautiful scenery of Co. Carlow and Co. Waterford, and I’m very fortunate that many of the brides and grooms I work with ask me to shoot their weddings in these spectacular locations.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of these amazing venues soon! – Eamon

Waterford Couple Niamh and Eoin Say I Do in Kilrossanty Waterford

Niamh and Eoin were married in Kilrossany, Mahon Bridge Co. Waterford on December 4th 2015 today I am finally getting around to sharing highlights from their wedding video.
My day began with a visit to Nimah’s parents house which was only a short drive from Kilrossanty, a tiny village located  in  County Waterford, on the main Carrick on Suir to Dungarvan road. The nearest town is Kilmacthomas.

The video features some lovey scenes from the Bridal Preparations the girls seemed calm and at ease and ready to deal with the joy, excitement and maybe a little panic which are part of a typical wedding day, all our wedding packages include a visit to the bride’s house in the morning.

As  a Tipperary based wedding videographer I am lucky to be within striking distance of  Waterford  which is one of my favorite wedding locations in Munster.  Kilrossanty is  very near  Mahon Bridge which is famous for the picturesque bridge which crosses  the river running from  Mahon Falls, it is a fantastic location for shooting high quality wedding video footage.

Niamh & Eoin enjoyed a wonderful wedding reception in The Park Hotel Dungarvan it is situated on five acres of landscaped gardens, overlooking the attractive Colligan River. The Park Hotel, Dungarvan is among the most popular wedding venues in the region. The elegant Deise ballroom with high ceilings and crystal chandeliers which can cater for 300 guests  will guarantee that your wedding celebrations are a truly memorable event.

Niamh & Eoin were a very nice couple to work with, they offered very little direction regarding the production of their wedding film, I was free to do my own thing on the day. They have received their wedding DVD and are very happy with the end result, wishing them all the best in married life it was a pleasure to have been their videographer, by the way I do welcome advice and direction regarding coverage of your big day.

Just a few words about my regular blog posts which are going down well  with couples who are  planning on saying yes, the blogs  are intended to offer advice and keep readers fully up to date on the latest wedding trends in Ireland, I also like to share my high quality wedding videos on line, gone are the days of handing out sample wedding dvds all my inquiries are coming from couples who have seen my videos on facebook, twitter and my Drangan Video Blog Page.

Flash Drives Are The Latest Format For your Wedding Video

Since setting up Drangan Video I have seen many  video formats come and go, for me it all began with VHS tapes  for both recording and supplying wedding videos.
Today  the majority of wedding videographers in Tipperary and Kilkenny  are supplying  wedding videos on DVD. Here at Drangan Video we are moving away from standard definition ( SD )  DVDs  and sharing a larger percentage of our weddings in full high definition  ( HD ) quality.

After  years of offering DVDs as a choice for wedding video delivery  flash  drives are quickly becoming our main format for supplying  top quality full high definition wedding  films. We will still be offering DVDS  as  an optional extra,  Blu Ray DVDS will also be available as a choice for viewing your wedding film in HD.

Flash drives will soon be our main format for delivery  of high quality wedding video to happy couples throughout  Tipperary, Kilkenny Carlow and Waterford and of coarse the greater Munster area

Why are we making this change ? Well the main reason is that it will allow us to supply our wedding videos in  broadcast high definition  quality, all our weddings are recorded  with the very latest HD cameras, I personally think that it is a shame to be converting the beautiful HD wedding footage to the lower quality SD – DVD quality.

We always like to keep up  with the latest wedding video trends.
With a digital video  file of your big day , you can share it with all your friends, here at Drangan Video we have no restrictions or issues about sharing your Video Files. The contents of the flash drive may be uploaded and shared on numerous  devices and played back on large screen TVs  just imagine looking back over those special wedding day moments  in cinema style quality.

 

I am excited about making the transition from wedding DVD to flash drive, when you book your wedding video with Drangan Video you are assured of been ahead of the current digital media trends, if you are just engaged and thinking about hiring a wedding videographer why not contact myself Eamon here at drangan video, I will be happy to discuss having your big day filmed and delivered  in stunning HD quality at an Affordable  price.
