In this week’s wedding blog post I’m delighted and proud to be sharing Ned and Fiorella’s wedding video highlights.
The ceremony took place in St. Patrick’s Church, followed by a wonderful wedding reception in the Spring Hill Court Hotel Kilkenny.
As a Kilkenny/Tipperary based wedding videographer its great to be covering so many local weddings in Kilkenny, Ned and Fiorell’s story begins with a call to Ned’s parents house in Mullinahone Co. Tipperary, it was a beautiful calm sunny day ideal for capturing stunning drone video footage.
The luxurious five star Lyrath Estate Kilkenny was my next stop to capture the fun and excitement of Fiorella and the girls preparing for the big day, we also returned to the venue in the afternoon for the photoshoot.
After the ceremony in St. Patricks Church the Bridal Party and familes made their way across the road to St. Kieran’s College for photos, the Collegue is marked in history as been oldest Catholic secondary school in Ireland the school is situated close to the centre of Kilkenny City, its a beautiful location for wedding videography.
Ned & Fiorella made a wise choice in choosing The Springhill Court Hotel, Kilkenny for the wedding reception with a 40 year tradition for weddings in Kilkenny combined with a reputation for great food and friendly staff it was an easy decision for Ned and Fiorella.

I am proud to be sharing the following wedding video highlights from the wedding of Conor & Louise who were married in Faithlegg Co. Waterford.
As a Tipperary, Kilkenny based wedding videographer I really enjoy traveling to other locations one such location is Faithlegg House Hotel in Waterford which is now one of the best wedding venues in Munster.
Faithlegg is situated close to Waterford Harbour, where the Barrow, Nore and Suir meet, history tells us that early settlers would have travelled along the three rivers to lay down their roots in the south east, Conor & Louise made the journey from Tipperary to say yes.
The wedding video story begins with the morning preparations in two of the luxury holiday homes set adjacent to the beautiful 4-star Faithlegg Hotel, Co.Waterford , Faithlegg Church was only a three minute drive for Conor and Louise, the ceremony was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Tiny Lambe parish priest in Drangan Co. Tipperary it was a lovely wedding ceremony conducted with a mix of good humor and spiritual reflection.
Faithlegg House Wedding Venue
Faithlegg is set in a stunning location overlooking the Suir estuary in County Waterford, Faithlegg House is a beautiful historic mansion, Louise and Conor’s wedding video features some stunning drone video footage of the house and the amazing surrounding countryside
I would like to thank Louise and Coror for choosing Drangan Video as their preferred choice of wedding videographer, they were both so nice to work with on the day, I have already shared their wedding highlights video on Instagram and Facebook it has received lots of lovely comments from the couple’s friends,family and collegues.

Following on from our earlier blog post about wedding fairs in December and January, we now take a look at some events that are happening in Tipperary, Kilkenny and across the country in February and March. These wedding fairs and venue showcases are a great source of inspiration for many of the couples we meet and can really help with the planning of your big day. If you know of any wedding showcases that are happening in your local area in the coming months and would like us to include them in our next listing, please do get in contact with Eamon here at Drangan Video.
Here we are now that time of year again with wedding fairs and open days taking place every weekend , if you’re recently engaged, you will looking forward to attending as many as possible.
Making time to visit wedding fairs in the early stages of planning your wedding, is definitely worthwhile meeting suppliers face to face is better than shopping online. Another reason to visit wedding fairs, especially those taking place at your chosen wedding venue, you will get to see spaces dressed for weddings which will give you an idea of what works for you on the day
Wedding fairs can also help to save money because many suppliers will be offering discounts if you book them on the spot, do your research before you go and find out which suppliers will be there, then if there are discounts on offer on the day, you can make the most of them knowing that the supplier in question is the right for for you and your wedding.

Are you hoping to pop the question over the festive period? Feeling a little nervous, excited and anxious? You have absolutely nothing to worry about! Proposing to the person you love will be an amazing experience and one you and your partner will remember for the rest of your lives. If you and your partner are not big on grand gestures or uncomfortable with elaborate set-ups, do things your own way. Every proposal should be different and unique to the couple involved, there’s no need to plot some elaborate scheme when a simple ‘will you marry me’ is often the most perfect thing you can do.
For those of you who are looking for some proposal ideas, we have listed some below that may help to inspire your own unique proposal.
1. The Advent Calendar
Make an advent calendar for the love of your life; use a simple booklet or a series of gifts or notes each day for your partner to open. If you opt for daily small gifts, you can simply pop the ring into the date of your choosing, if you want them to read a special note every day, you can write your special question for the date of your choice. A wonderful surprise for that someone special in your life.
2. Hang it on the Tree
Yes, as simple as it sounds, this little idea is one of our favourites. Simply wrap the ring box in some beautiful packaging or cover it in gold or silver foil and hide it in amongst the other decorations on the tree. On the day of the proposal you can ask your partner where that decoration came from and ask them to take a closer look!
3. Christmas Morning with the Kids
If you have children, there’s nothing better than getting them involved in Mammy and Daddy’s happy day. Ask the kids to present your partner with the ring, all wrapped up with the other presents under the tree. This will be a moment that you can all remember together for the rest of your lives.
4. Christmas Dinner Proposal
If you’d like to propose on Christmas Day, try to incorporate the proposal in with your family meal. Consider hiding the ring in your partner’s dessert (make sure it’s not too well hidden, you want them to see it and not eat it!) or using the ring as a napkin holder on their place setting.
Whatever way you choose to propose to that someone special in your life, you can be assured that it’s always the question that matters most. Whether you plan it well in advance or simply pop the question at a time that feels right, hearing ‘I do’ will be all that’s needed to make your proposal a success.
For all you budding fiancés out there, we wish you nothing but happiness and our heartiest congratulations for the years ahead
Here at Drangan Video, we have been blessed to film hundreds of winter weddings over our 25 years in business. During this time, we have learned a lot about special touches, unique décor and inspired themes from our brides and grooms and we love nothing more than sharing them with our readers.
In this blog post we are going to look at some of the most wonderful winter wedding flowers, that are sure to add a touch of magic to your décor, bouquets and boutonnieres.
You would be forgiven for thinking that the winter months in Ireland don’t offer a lot of options in the floral department, after all our climate doesn’t encourage all year round flowering! However, there are some real floral gems to be found in our gardens, hedgerows, countryside and of course with our wonderful Irish florists. Take a look at the list below and envisage the perfect winter bouquet with these special blooms and foliage.
Whilst not native to Ireland, the eucalyptus can now be found on virtually every corner you turn. The silvery/blue tint and minty aroma is perfect to fill out any winter wedding bouquet. Add eucalyptus to your table centrepieces too for an extra touch of something special.
Take a ramble in your local countryside to avail of some of the most wonderful winter colours available in Ireland. Whether you opt for holly or hypericum berries, you can be assured that these will look wonderful in any floral arrangements, bouquets or centrepieces.
Bouquets and centrepieces don’t have to be made up entirely of flowers and foliage. As with berries, pinecones, nuts and other winter fruits can add something really special to your décor and floral arrangements.
This may seem like an odd one, but stick with us! Cinnamon and star anise just smell like winter right? Think about adding one or two of each to your winter bouquet by attaching to a length of wire, the sweet, comforting smell will add a touch of warmth to your big day.
It goes without saying, that roses are one of the most popular choices for bridal bouquets, however they can be expensive at this time of the year, especially if you’re looking for red. Talk with your florist about the options available to you and perhaps opt for more subtle colours such as romantic pinks, creams and whites to enhance your arrangement.
The smell of fresh pine is one of the most wonderful winter scents we have come across, and it’s absolutely abundant in our countryside, towns and villages. No need to pay a fortune when we have such incredible foliage available outside our doors.
Drangan Video is delighted to offer winter wedding videography to couples in Kilkenny, Tipperary and right across Ireland. We now include drone footage in all our packages and provide you with the very best customer service at all times.
