Why you should always hire a professional to shoot your wedding video

The happiest day of your life, the most important day of your life, the longest day of your life or the day you will NEVER forget, your wedding day will be recorded for you to look back upon as long as we have digital media, so the importance of having a professional well shot video cannot be overstated. So don’t cut corners here, don’t leave it up to your uncle or your brother in law, hire a professional. You won’t regret it.

There are many competitive professional videographers in Tipperary and the surrounding counties. With Google’s new search parameters all you have to do is search “wedding videos Tipperary” and they’ll fire you up with all the local wedding videographers in the locality. This is where you need to be careful. Remember a shoddy website will most likely reflect the standard of work, so make sure you conduct your research carefully. Here at Drangan Video we are very proud of our online presence and do tend to get booked up well in advance thanks to our responsive website.

Whilst there is a lot of planning that goes into your wedding day, by it’s nature the personalities involved will inevitably guarantee spontaneity and exuberance. The day is packed full of emotion and special memories, recorded for you to watch at your leisure for the rest of your life. This is why you need to hire a professional!

Ok, so you have done the search on Google, you have seen a few websites of local videographers and already you are leaning towards one over another. Most videographers worth their salt will show examples of their  work from various weddings they have covered over the years; there should be a list of packages with prices, editing, final cut information and presentation. Drangan Video also offer tailored packages to suit your every wedding wish, feel free to give us a call to discuss your requirements and we’ll be very happy to talk you through the process.

One of the most important reasons for hiring a professional photographer is how they will behave on your big day. Eamon here at Drangan Video is always professional, unobtrusive, courteous, and punctual. Giving the responsibility to a friend or bridal party member can sometimes result in one too many drinks being taken and a lot of shots of the floor!

Drangan video  offer a number of different styles and will have many suggestions that will get your creative juices flowing. We will edit all the footage and overlay it with a soundtrack of your choice; we can also offer slow motion and black and white shots. Another great reason to hire a professional videographer.

Your family, the family of your partner and most of your friends are going be the actors in this most memorable production, isn’t it always best to have a professional at the helm to make everything the very best it can be! Call Eamon here at Drangan Video to enquire about our professional videographer services.

Rachel & Ian Happy Wedding Celebrations Hotel Kilkenny

Kilkenny city is one of the most popular  wedding destinations in Ireland  it has so much to offer, wedding venues to numerous to mention which are  complemented by beautiful historical attractions and an abundance of scenic wedding  photo locations through out the county.  Here at Drangan Video our bookings for weddings in KIlkenny are very strong  for the next two years as more and more Brides say yes to a professional wedding videographer.  Rachel and Ian are one such couple !! here is a clip from their wedding DVD.

The story begins with the all exciting bridal preps which took place in Callan  which is sometimes  described  as a satellite town to Kilkenny.  Rachel is the third member of the Dalton family to avail of my videographer services, thanks to  Siobhaun and Gemma for the referral to baby sister Rachel.

There is nothing more enjoyable than a visit to the  house in the morning  for bridal preps everyone in high spirits the mood is infectious, it never fails in giving me a  happy mood boost.  After getting the usual  fun shots on camera I headed for Kilkenny city to get set up for the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. John’s Church opposite McDonnagh Junction  is just one of many magnificent wedding ceremony venues in Kilkenny City,  it was built 1903 on the site of an earlier church,  relatively new.  Fr. Willie Purcell  is popular wedding celebrant  and well known for his somewhat light hearted style of  wedding mass.  Ian and the boys arrived in good time and were pretty relaxed, “not a bother on them”.

Butler House Kilkenny City :

After the ceremony we visited Butler House for the photo session with the bridal party.  Butler House is a beautiful location for wedding video and photo shoots it offers the best of both worlds. Through the rear door you are on Patrick Street which is only a short step from the central hub and commercial center of the city where you will find an array of shops bars and restaurants.

We headed out the front door which took us to the internationally renowned Butler House Walled Gardens which are  an ideal location for capturing stunning wedding video footage.

Our final destination was Hotel Kilkenny for the wedding reception, Rachel & Ian  the new Mr & Mrs Goodman were in the mood for celebrating and what better venue than Hotel Kilkenny.

Upon entering Hotel Kilkenny you immediately feel the wonderful warm atmosphere which is a credit to the Griffin Group of Hotels. Rachel & Ian enjoyed a lively  wedding reception in the Skyline Suite which can cater for up to 400 guests. There is a fantastic view of Kilkenny City from the skyline, the city lights provided a wonderful backdrop for the late night celebrations.

Rachel & Ian are a lovely couple, it was a pleasure to have been their wedding videographer, for me I felt more like a guest than a wedding supplier. This wedding video clip has already been shared on facebook and is receiving glowing reviews from family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by, more wedding news next week.
