Hiring a Drone for your Wedding Video

Here at Drangan Video, we have been providing wedding videography services for over 25 years and have recently added drone videography  to our packages. The trend for aerial images is set to keep on growing and we have embraced all this technology has to offer over the past 2 years. Take a look at some of the sample videos right here on our website to see how drone footage can add an element of drama, beauty and incredible scenery to your wedding video.

Drone Wedding Video

Wedding drone  videography is rising in popularity for couples right across Ireland (and with good reason), however, it is incredibly important that you deal with an experienced operator. While the end result is of course the most important aspect of drone footage, safety is absolutely paramount at all times. The drones we use here at Drangan Video are essentially mini helicopters with an on-board camera that captures images and video footage from an elevated height. We have undertaken in-depth training in order to provide this service and are fully licensed to operate drones within the Republic of Ireland. Don’t risk accidents on the happiest day of your life by hiring someone who lacks the experience or credentials to operate and film with a hi-tech drone.

Planning is essential for drone photography and videography

In the lead up to your big day, we will put in place a full safety plan to ensure our drones never have a negative impact on your big day. We want you to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that the team from Drangan Video are absolute experts at what they do! We will collaborate with any onsite vendors, including your photographer, will scope out the surrounding area and make ourselves familiar with any flight restrictions that may be in place near the venue. Our promise to you is to provide incredible aerial footage of your wedding without ever having to worry about safety or intrusion on your big day.

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and we aim to capture every moment in all its beautiful glory. Our state of the art drones will deliver panoramic footage that is both unique and memorable. Combined with our traditional wedding videography, the drone footage will add something truly special to your wedding video.

Wedding Ceremony

Are you planning a wedding in the great outdoors or tying the knot in a particularly scenic part of Ireland? If so, we would love to talk to you about the possibilities that drone footage can bring to your wedding video.

Getting creative with the many possibilities aerial footage offers, means wedding videos will never be the same again. Imagine aerial footage of your guests arriving at the venue, perhaps it’s been snowing and the nearby mountains are capped with white! Maybe you and your bridal party fancy taking a lie down in a meadow on a sunny day and want it captured from above? The possibilities are endless! With our experience and ideas and your imagination, we can provide you with the most memorable wedding video possible.

Based in Tipperary and Kilkennny we are available to travel nationwide, you can be assured that Drangan Video will provide you with the very best wedding videography service available in Ireland.

Planning for the Weather on your Wedding Day

Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary and Kilkenny, we have been providing wedding videography services to Ireland’s most loved-up couples for almost 25 years. We have seen every type of weather conceivable, quite often all on the same day, and we know that a little preparation can go a very long way!

Due to our somewhat unpredictable climate, planning for the weather is an absolute ‘must’ when it comes to preparing for your Irish wedding. Getting married in June or July does not guarantee sunshine as we all know, and you could end up with blue skies and high temperatures in November when the winds blow in the right direction. In this blog post, we are going to look at some tips that you can keep in mind when planning your big day. Remember though, that no matter what the weather, your day is going to be a day to remember, rain, sunshine, snow or ice won’t make a jot of difference when you say ‘I do’ to the one you love!

Umbrellas for guests:
Pre-pack umbrellas into family and friends cars in the days leading up to your big day. Choose playful colours, pastels or quirky designs to add a splash of colour to your day. Whether the umbrellas are used to ward off the rain or to protect your guests from the sunshine, you can be assured they’ll be appreciated by all who use them. Perhaps consider getting the umbrellas personalised with a monogram, these make great wedding favours and mementos for your guests and you can be guaranteed they’ll be used again!
Blankets and throws:
A lovely touch for the evening of your wedding when guests tend to wander outdoors, consider providing some throws and blankets to ward off the cool night air. If you’re having an outdoor or marquee wedding, these little touches will make all the difference for guests of all ages.

Sunscreen:
If it looks like it’s going to be a sunny day, consider leaving some sunscreen in the ladies and gents restrooms as part of a toiletries hamper. If you have children attending your wedding celebrations, you can be assured that their parents will welcome this little touch to keep the kiddies sunburn free for the day.

Have a plan B:
If you are planning an outdoor wedding, it’s imperative that you have a plan B for your big day. Speak with your wedding venue and vendors in advance to put a plan in place for a rainy day event. Ask your venue to have an indoor area available and ready for your guests in the event of rain. With one or two days to go until the wedding you should have a clearer idea of the forecast and can start putting plans in motion.

Warm/cool your guests with a welcome drink:
Whether you’re looking at soaring temperatures or romantic snow, a welcoming drink for your guests upon arrival can make all the difference. A winter wedding paired with mulled wine is a real treat for the senses and can help your guests warm up, relax and get ready for the celebrations. During the summer months you can opt to serve cooling cocktails and juices. It’s the little touches that make a big difference!

Drangan Video Tipperary and Kilkenny

In this article, we’re going to tell you a bit about what makes Drangan Video so special and why we believe brides and grooms choose us to capture every moment of their big day.

Since our inception in 1995, we have seen huge changes in the world of wedding videography, particularly in the technology we use and the trend towards a more subtle approach to filming your wedding. Drangan Video have adapted to and in many cases, led these changes in approach and style.

One of the best compliments we can get from any bride or groom is ‘We didn’t even know you were there’! This tells us that we have done our job correctly. Our hands-off approach means we never interfere with the running of your day and film from the sidelines without ever infringing on the celebrations. We also work extremely well with photographers, recognizing that they are limited by time and circumstance and don’t want a videographer disrupting their work in any way. We let the photographer take centre stage, never infringing on their space.

Our approach to wedding videography can be described as ‘documentary style’ and we strive to capture every moment of your day in a way that is natural, discrete and free from interruption. This approach allows us to take footage that may otherwise be overlooked – a loving glance between father and bride or special moments between those who know you best. This results in a true documentation of your wedding, allowing you to see the little things that would normally go unnoticed.

Another reason brides and grooms choose us for their wedding videography is our central location. Based in Co. Tipperary, our central location allows us to offer wedding videography in every county in Ireland. We don’t charge extra for distance travelled and always get to know the venue and area before the big day.
One of the newest additions to our wedding video offering is drone videography and photography. Our state of the art drone allows us to capture unique footage of your big day from a perspective that is absolutely breathtaking. Picture our aerial footage of your home or venue along with the guests arriving to the wedding ceremony. We are truly blessed in Ireland to enjoy such wonderful landscapes and scenery and there’s no reason why this incredible backdrop shouldn’t be featured on your beautifully crafted wedding video.

Drangan Video: The Changing Face of Wedding Videography

Over the past 25 years as a wedding videographer, I have seen a huge change in trends, technologies and editing software. The tools available to the modern videographer have greatly enhanced the service we now offer and Drangan Video has embraced each and every one of these changes.

In this blog post I’m going to tell you a bit about our modern approach to wedding videography and the changes we have made over the years to become one of Ireland’s most sought after wedding videographers.

Wedding Videography Tipperary

Brides and grooms consistently tell us that they are surprised at just how hands off we are, never intruding upon personal moments and in many cases their guests have told them they didn’t even know we were there! This style of non-intrusive wedding videography allows us to capture the moments as they really happen and deliver a beautiful documentary of the day to our wonderful brides and grooms. How do we do it, I hear you ask?

Changing Technologies

Let’s take the exchanging of vows as an example. During the wedding we make a point of never getting in the way of the natural progression of the vows or ceremony and we do this by setting up our cameras and filming from a distance. Modern technology has given us with the ability to do this by providing the groom with a pen-like audio recorder that can be inserted into their suit or shirt pocket. This tiny device picks up all audio and ensures we can deliver top quality sound on all videos, regardless of how far away we physically are. There is absolutely no need for a modern videographer to be intruding upon these special moments!

Changing Trends

It has now almost become a tradition to film the preparations on the morning of the wedding and I absolutely love this trend! Providing our videography services to couples on the morning of the wedding means that we get to truly capture the excitement in the hours before the ceremony. The enthusiasm is absolutely infectious and we are blessed to capture some truly tender moments between close friends, families and neighbours. When our couples look back on these moments, they get to see parts of the day that would otherwise remain a mystery. It really is truly special to share these moments after the big day with your new spouse and enjoy them together for the first time.
Changing Approach

Drangan Video Kilkenny and Tipperary

Over our time in the industry, we have honed our skills to a degree that ensures none of our shots are ever set up. This takes great pressure off the couple and means they can go about their day without ever having to worry about whether the videographer is capturing everything. We will be your eyes and ears for the day, never missing a tender moment or asking your guests to pose for shots. Our approach is natural, non-intrusive and results in a truly incredible documentary of your big day.
