WEDDING ON THE LAKE in Clare Charlotte & Martin’s Wedding Video Highlights.

Each year there are always one or two wedding videos that will stand out for been somewhat  special or a little different, Charlotte and Martin’s  WEDDING ON THE LAKE  at Anna Carriga Estate, Killaloe Co. Clare was certainly one of those special and memorable weddings.

It was late September we were still enjoying an Indian summer I arrived at Garraunboy, Killaloe and as I made my way up the long driveway to Charlotte’s house  surrounded by  rolling hills and rich green Clare pastures it was a sight to behold, I remember thinking to myself ” this is going to be a great Wedding Video”  I received a huge warm Clare welcome from Charlotte and her family from then I just blended into the background and got to capture some beautiful Wedding Video footage  by a fly on the wall approach.

After spending an hour or or so covering the bridal preps it was time to make my way to  Sacred Heart and St. Lua’s Church Garraunboy which stands on a cross roads over looking beautiful Killaloe. Martin and the boys arrived in good time all looking very smart but perhaps a little nervous, his beautiful Bride Charlotte  arrived a customary 10 mins over time, which is very much the normal for weddings in Ireland. The ceremony was conducted by Fr. Pat Malone who is a family friend the happy couple were smiling through out it was a most relaxing marriage ceremony.

WEDDING ON THE LAKE :  Killaloe is lovely busy village in east Clare very near the Tipperary border. The village sits on the banks of the river Shannon Ireland’s longest river, Killaloe is famous for its river cruse trips around Lough Derg.  Charlotte and Martin and wedding guests boarded the the Spirit Of Killaloe for the 30 min river voyage to  their wedding reception venue,  I made my way by car  to get video coverage of the boat arriving at the splended  Anna Carriga Estate. The weather was just beautiful not a clould in the sky it was the ideal  I was in a ” Wedding Videographers Paradise”.

As a wedding videographer in Clare its always exciting to return to Annacarriga for a truely memorable lakeside wedding video exsperience, each couple will enjoy single  ownership of the Lakeside stunning  glass Pavilion with a perfect view of the lake.  The crystal clear waters of Lough Derg  provide  a stunning backdrop for creative film making.

A huge thanks to Charlotte for asking me to be part of their big day, the have received the wedding dvds and are very happy with the end result, Drangan Video has already  shared the above video highlights clip on Facebook, this “WEDDING ON THE LAKE; was a memorable experience for me and I look forward to returning to AnnaCarriga again during 2015.

The use of Facebook and social media devices at weddings

One great advantage of been a  wedding videographer  in Tipperary and Kilkenny  is that I get to attend a large amount of weddings in many different venues.  I am always interested in the  changing trends that have come about over the last few years, now a days  nearly all wedding guests  are armed with some sort of video recording  device, smart phones, phablets, ipads, pocket cameras with wifi, you name it the list goes on  so Bride & Groom to be, look out  be fore you know it your wedding day could be unfolding to the world on facebook and other social media pages.

Weddings Tipperary

The use of Facebook and social media devices  at weddings: is a debatable  subject.  On one hand  you have couples who will love the idea of  huge exposure on Facebook, Twitter and social media pages.   I have heard of a Hotel in America that  is offering to supply a company whose job it is to manage all social media posting on your big day , they would more than likely stream line posts from the wedding guests to achieve the best saturation on line.  On the other hand there are couples who  where guests and were asked to refrain from using their smart phones during the ceremony, this would be common practice at some celebrity weddings in ireland, some times the celebrant will ask the guests to power off the mobiles, just in case of a ring tone during the ceremony.

Here at Drangan Video the use of facebook and social media, plays an important role for me as a wedding videographer. I offer sharing on facebook, twitter, youtube, vimeo and google +  at no extra cost with any  of my 5 wedding video packages.  A short  4 minute video highlights clip will be shared on line  but only with the permission of the couple.

We are all aware of the role that Facebook  plays at weddings in Ireland now,  it is a matter of consideration for the Bride & Groom during the wedding planning process.  Many couples would prefer to wait for the Professional Wedding Video and photos before sharing on Facebook,  the advice for guests is to try to honor the feelings of the couple by asking them if its ok to share wedding clips on social media.

 1. Play it safe.

When you’re the guest, it’s best to avoid whipping out your phone until you know what the couple has planned.

2. Once you know the plan, respect it.

If the couple has asked you to refrain from taking photos on your phone, follow their rules. “First and foremost, you’re a guest at this wedding, so be respectful of the fact that they’re paying a big chunk of money for professional wedding video and photos to be captured on the day  But if they’ve created a hashtag just for the big day, go ahead and tweet away.

3. Don’t go overboard.

If you’re at a wedding where social media use has been approved, you should still keep yourself in check. “Less is more when it comes to being a guest,”  “Don’t upload 90 unedited photos.” or video clips. As with any big celebration, wedding guests tend to let loose as the night goes on, putting the phone away after dinner is served so as to avoid embarrassing anyone is a good idea.

4. Enjoy the moment firsthand.

But most of all,  make sure you enjoy the event as it’s happening in front of you, instead of through a screen. “Share those memories,”  “But be sure to put the phone away and enjoy the day that the couple have put so much time and money into planning.”

Happy Wedding Video In Waterford

At this time of the year its refreshing for me to share some wedding video highlights  from weddings that I have filmed over the past 12 months.  The following clip is a snippet from from a lovely,  Happy Wedding Video  in Waterford.

From the moment that I first spoke to Michelle and Garry I knew that we were in for great wedding day, they were so down to earth, happy and easygoing, straight away I was  looking forward to working with them on their wedding day.   September 12th was another beautiful sunny day, I arrived for bridal preps in Kings Meadow, McDonagh Road at 11 am, with just two hours to go Michelle and the girls were showing no signs of panic, a very relaxed Bride to be said t “everything will be grand” and it was.

Drangan Video Watrford

The wedding ceremony was set for 2pm in the Church of the Sacred Hearth the Folly Waterford which was only a 10 min drive from Michelle’s house, I arrived in good time to get shots of Gary and the boys arriving, not a bother on Gary it was just another day, he was in no hurry in to the church making the best of the beautiful weather he enjoyed a chat with family and friends before the arrival of his beautiful bride who arrived 10 mins late which is not bad timing, Gary and the boys were already seared and ready for the ceremony.

Ballindud Mill and Cottage is a famous tourist attraction in Waterford, it is situated on the Tramore road just on the outskirts of Waterford city, we arrived there at 4pm for family photos. I was delighted with my video footage, the sun was still shining from a blue sky as Michelle and Gary took a quite  stroll around the the grounds, the old mill wheel still stands at Ballindud and is set to one side of the old cottage its an amazing backdrop for wedding videos and photos.

The Tower Hotel Waterford is on of my favorite wedding venues in the South East, the stately building sits on the banks of the river suir, at the Mall in Waterford city. Weddings in the tower are always a memorable occasion, the staff are so friendly and experienced as they go about the job of hosting unforgettable  wedding receptions. The speeches were conducted before the meal which was no problem for the hotel, dancing began at 10pm which is quite early, thanks again to the hotel management and staff  for getting tables cleared away in good time for the band to set up.

A big thank you to Michelle & Gary for choosing me as their wedding videographer, it was a a fab wedding everything went off without a hitch thanks to good planning and attention to detail,  wishing Gary & Michelle all the very best for the future, they have promised to recommend Drangan Video to some of their friends who are thinking of tying the knot in the near future.  I am already looking forward to producing  my next Happy Wedding Video In Waterford.

WEDDING DAY PLANNING 2015 : Some tips for the Groom

After many years of producing wedding videos in Tipperary, Kilkenny and  other counties in throughout Ireland, I have come to the conclusion that when its comes to planning a wedding  the Groom is a back seat driver and is more than happy to leave it all to the love of his life:  “The Bride to Be;”  During 2014 I could count on one hand the number men that looked after booking the Wedding Video  and the same goes for hiring of other wedding suppliers.

Wedding Video Tipperary
Wedding Video Tipperary

After a little research on the web I came across 10 interesting Groom To-Dos: Tips on   www.theknot.com   I have listed all 10 below.

You bought the ring, popped the question, and now you get to kick back until your wedding day rolls around, right? Well, that’s one option, but the best way to keep her happy — and you out of the doghouse — is to get involved. Here are our top tips www.theknot.com for being a great groom.

1. Have an Opinion

This is your wedding too, so get in on the planning. Pick a few things that interest you (food? the wedding music? photos?). You don’t have to wax poetic on the difference between lilies and daisies for the bridesmaid bouquets, but give your opinion on the major planning points; it’ll let your fiance know she’s not in this alone. And wouldn’t it be nice to know a little something about your wedding before you attend it?  I would like to add the Wedding Video to the Groom’s to do list of booking suppliers.

2. Relish Your Wedding Registry

It may seem like a tedious task, but think about it: You get to wander around a store, picking things you want that someone most likely will buy you — you can’t beat that. Better yet, it’s now common to shop beyond the kitchen department. Consider home electronics, power tools, and camping gear. Can’t justify shelling out for a plasma screen yourself? Throw it on your wedding registry, and a group of friends might buy it for you!

3. Don’t Be a Pushover — Really

She wants to register for a yellow comforter with little pink flowers, and you don’t want to have to stash your bedspread in the closet every time your friends come over. See if you can meet her halfway: Tell her the floral patterns are a bit much, but you’re fine with yellow, maybe in another style. You’ll make her happy and salvage your manhood.

4. Give Her a Break

If she’s doing the majority of the planning for your wedding, she’s probably bordering on wedding overload. You need to make sure she doesn’t have an ulcer (or a grudge!) by the time she walks down the aisle. Give her a night to relax and cook her dinner, do the dishes, rent her favorite movie (yes, even a chick flick), and remind her why wedding planning is worth the stress.

5. Be a Buffer

If your mom is calling your fiance every hour to talk about the wedding, you run the risk of major family conflict, with you stuck in the middle. Your mission: Keep the peace. Call your mom and let her know that while you appreciate her interest and excitement, it’s your wedding and she needs to give you two some planning space. Take responsibility for communicating with your family so that you can filter out petty worries from legitimate concerns.

6. Get Some Help

Has your fiance really hit the wall? Suggest hiring a planner for the day of your wedding. (Use our local resources to find a great day-of wedding planner in your area.) Your consultant will handle all the little details that neither you nor your bride will want to deal with, and it’ll be a relief to have a professional on hand to fix any little mix-ups.

7. Don’t Add Insult

Your fiance may complain about her mom who’s being a control freak, or about her uncle who wants to bring his new girlfriend, or her cousin who wants to bring all four of her kids. Don’t join in on the family bashing. Hear her out, agree with her, but don’t take this opportunity to tell her the things about her family that annoys you. Her bad mood will pass, but your careless comments may stick.

8. Arrange the Attire

Send out detailed emails to all your groomsmen filling them in on the relevant info for the formalwear — let them know when and where to get fitted for their tuxes, and remind them to return the suits the day after the wedding to avoid annoying late fees. Loop your fiance in on the emails to prove that you’ve got everything under control. The more info you can share, the better. Got directions to the tux place? Include them. Don’t assume they’ll know anything about this stuff. Did you before you got engaged?

9. Manage Your Men

Know your friend who loses his car keys at least once a week? Probably better not to make him responsible for bringing your ring to the ceremony. And your buddy who tends to drink too much? Make sure one of your more reliable (or sober) groomsmen keeps him from flirting with your fiance’s mom at the rehearsal dinner. Your guys don’t have to be saints, but they will have responsibilities, and it’s your job to make sure they know what they are.

10. Get Sentimental

The day of your wedding, send her a gift, flowers, or a sweet note to read while she’s getting ready. Or, at the reception, pull the videographer aside and tape a special message to her. She’ll see it later and we promise, she’ll love you all the more.

Wedding Video Packages: Tipperary, Kilkenny Waterford

I am delighted to share my new year line up of Wedding Video Packages which are available  to, Brides in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford;  and further a field.  Over the last two years the Diamond Package has been the most popular choice, it covers the full day from the Bridal Preps in the morning up to 11pm that evening. There is no travel charge for  recording wedding videos in Tipperary or any other counties in Munster :

Wedding Video Tipperary
Wedding Video Tipperary

How to Book a Wedding Video :  Booking  any one of my five packages could not be easier, just pop a few lines  from the contact page on my Drangan Video Website  or the Facebook Page,  give me the date for your wedding and include the ceremony and reception venues, I will get back to you by return email letting know if the date is available or not.  A deposit of €200 will secure a booking and a receipt for the payment  will be returned. The wedding video booking will then be entered on  icloud calenders for viewing on my handheld devices and  PC’s,  I also write the booking into a paper diary, that is it you now have your Wedding Videographer sorted.

My approach taking bookings for  wedding videos is pretty straight forward, I like to keep things simple and easy for the couple, booking certain wedding suppliers can be tedious  and time consuming due to a lack of information  on poorly designed websites which sometimes do not contain the relevant information.  A wedding videographer’s website should contain loads of wedding video samples and up to date blog posts which should also include  video clips.

A price list for all Video Packages is a must, easy navigation of the site with links to the various pages is also important.  Normally when I receive an email or facebook enquiry from a couple they are ready to go ahead with a booking because they are more than happy with all the information that is available on my website.

Fun Wedding Video in Kilkenny: Nicola and Keith

Today December 21st is the shortest day the year sky is grey and rain drops are falling the long hot summer is a distance memory,  as I look back on this  Fun Wedding Video In Kilkenny,  I get to relive a beautiful day in August through the lens of my Cameras.

Nicola and Keith were married in the village of Dungarvan which is very near Gowran, Kilkenny, for me it was an easy wedding shoot it was just a matter of parking in the church grounds and walking across the the road to the brides house.  Nicola’s parents are very proud of the beautiful gardens that they have developed and nurtured over the years and needless to say everything was in tip top condition for Nicola’s big day, the clip features some great wedding video footage with the Bridal Party around the gardens.

I arrived early for the bridal preps which were in full swing the girls were on a high as they attended to  Nicola’s every need, it was clear to be seen that this was going to be  A Fun Wedding Video the laughter from the house echoed all over the quit village of Dungarvan.  Nicola and Keith are living in Australia so it was understandable that emotions were running high, Nicola is very close to her parents and family, the video captures special moments between Nicola and her dad when  she made her entrance  into the kitchen  fully dressed looking stunning  and ready for the short walk to St. Michael and David’s Church just across the street.

After the ceremony we returned to  Nicola’s house for the the photo call, Seamus Costelloe is a well known Kilkenny Wedding Photographer and for me it was a pleasure working with him once again, his has an easy going approach to capturing those special moments.  All family and bridal party photos were done in the garden which was an ideal  location, and of coarse a cup of tea and finger food was a nice surprise thanks to Nicola’s mum.

Langton House Hotel Kilkenny:  was the reception venue it is one the best Hotels in Kilkenny,  Sean and Collette were on duty to greet the happy bride and groom and treat them to glass of bubbly before making their grand entrance.  I just love  recording Wedding Videos in Langtons its a high class wedding venue and the attention to detail is first class for every wedding, our own daughter had her reception in langtons last year, it was an amazing day thanks to  Eamon Langton and his professional staff.

Thanks to Nicola and Keith who were the main stars in this “Fun Wedding Video in Kilkenny”  I got a message from Nicola on facebook to let me know that the four dvds had arrived safely and that it was the ideal Christmas present.

“Eamon the DVDs finally arrived, Australia post is so slow with Christmas. I must say we absolutely loved it. It’s amazing what you miss on the day as it goes by so quickly, such an amazing memory to have and it was a pleasure working with you. Thanks so much, Nicola and Keith”

Ciara and Bill’s Fantastic Wedding Video In Kilkenny :

This is a beautiful highlights clip from another one of my many wedding videos in Kilkenny during summer 2014, Congratulations to  Ciara  Fitzpatrick and Bill McCormack were married in Kilmoganny.

When I arrived at Ciara’s house wedding preparations were in in full swing,  April 24th was a balmy sunny day and not a clould in sight. The girls were  in overdrive as they received the final touches on make up and hair, Ciara’s dad  and a few friends were struggling with getting  ribbons on to a white BMW.

Nick O’ Keeffe is well know in Kilkenny for his creative style of photography,  his light hearted approach to wedding photographery helps to put everyone at ease, it was great working with him once again.  When I was happy with my coverage of the bridal peps it was time to head for the St. Eoghan’s Church  and get my cameras set up for the ceremony.  The wedding guests  were in no hurry in to the church they were happy to chat and mingle  in beautiful warm Spring sunshine.  Bill and the groomsmen arrived early to await the arrival of Ciara who by the did arrive well on time.

Kells Mills Museum is situated just outside the tiny village of Kells, it was the perfect setting for the photos and smashing  wedding video footage.  One of a number of industrial buildings in the immediate locality, the mill remains of particular importance for the contribution made to the picturesque scenic value of the town scape of Kells, it is often used by Kilkenny Brides  and wedding videographers as an ideal location for capturing those special wedding day moments.

The Kilkenny ­Ormonde Hotel was the reception venue it is a 4 star city centre Hotel.  It is located right next to Kilkenny City landmarks such as  Kilkenny Castle, the intriguing St. Canice’s Cathedral, Medieval Rothe House and just a few steps away from the finest boutiques, theatres, bars and restaurants.

Ciara and Bill really enjoyed their wedding day,  they were so nice to work with, for me  it was just a matter of turning up  and pressing the record button everything just seemed to fall into place.  it was a pleasure to have been the wedding videographer for this lovely Kilkenny couple, wishing them all the very best for the future.

Thanks for reading my Latest Wedding News.

Regards Eamon.

Wedding Videographer covering Weddings in Kilkenny

Another year almost over and a new one on the horizon, this is my favorite time of the year its great to be looking forward to another busy new year “Roll on 2015″  Over the past 3 years the majority of my wedding video bookings are in Kilkenny a trend which looks set to continue for 2015/2016, just as a matter of interest not all are Kilkenny Brides,  more and more brides from other counties including Tipperary are choosing the marble city as their preferred  wedding reception venue.  The following video clip is featured on the kilkenny Heritage Website  which highlights the beauty and heritage of Kilkenny City,  its obvious  why  its one of the most popular wedding destinations in Ireland.

Drangan Video has  undergone many changes and investments during 2014 :  I took delivery of 2 new cameras on September 1st which are the very latest from  the Sony family of XD Cams, I always use two cameras for the wedding ceremony making sure to cover different angles and points of view during the Wedding Mass or a Civil Ceremony, all computers have been upgraded and a new hard -drive 12 TB  storage system has been installed.   My mode of transport has also been updated the old high mileage work horse has moved on to another home, it had served me well over the past 5 years on my travels to record Weddings in Kilkenny, Tipperary,

Website Upgrade :  Over the  years my website has been the backbone of my  wedding  videographer  business here in Tipperary and Kilkenny. I have launched a new look site which is mobile friendly and very easy to navigate, a big thanks to Brian Corbett for all his hard work an patience in getting the new  site up and running  in time for the new year.

What makes a good Website :   We all depend on the web for getting information about a products and  company details,  when it comes to choosing wedding suppliers you could just rely on word of mouth and referrals from fiends which is fine but  you will need to  have a closer look at the list of suppliers before taking the plunge.  Check out  Drangan Video.

In my opinion a good website should contain lots of information about the supplier and what they are offering.  A wedding videographer should be sharing loads of recent video samples and a full price list for the video packages that they are  offering, sample videos should be changed on a regular basis.  Blog posts should contain wedding information  and samples from recent wedding DVDS.

More Sample Wedding Videos from weddings in Kilkenny soon

Beautiful Vintage Theme Wedding Video In Kilkenny

Emma Peters & Niall O’ Leary were married in Dungarvan Co. Kilkenny. This is the highlights clip from their wedding DVD.

The wedding Video coverage begins with Emma and her bridesmaids preparing for the day, Emma’s house is only within walking distance from the Church in Dungarvan. The main highlight of the day was the arrival of the bride at the church on the back of and old perfectly restored vintage tractor, which was a real treat for me in my capacity  as the official wedding videographer.

Dungarvan is a lovely tidy village in Gowran Kilkenny situated quite near to Gowran Park which is a horse race course in County Kilkenny, Ireland. It is located in the Annely Estate near the village of Gowran.The first meeting was held in 1914, and the first ever racecourse commentary in Ireland took place here in 1952. I have recorded many wedding videos around this part of Kilkenny already this year and I always look forward to returning there.

After the wedding ceremony the happy bride & Groom departed from the church grounds on the vintage tractor which was drivin by the proud groom Niall. We got some stunning video and photos of the bridal party as they strolled around the village street, we popped into the local where Emma tried her hand at pulling a pint for her thirsty groom it was all great fun.

Emma & Niall enjoyed a wonderful wedding Reception at the 4 star Newpark Hotel which is now the top wedding venue in Leinster Ireland and the greater Killkenny area.  Brides in Kilkenny are spoiled for choice by the amount of top class wedding venues that are available in the Marble City. I am sure that all Wedding Suppliers and Videographers in Kilkenny will agree that the New Park is a dream wedding reception venue.

Emma and Niall have returned to Austrlia and have received their wedding DVDs by post, this video clip from the wedding dvd has been shared on Facebook by Drangan Video. It was a smashing wedding and I enjoyed working with this lovely friendly couple who really enjoyed their wedding day, the vintage tractors were a great idea and of coarse the brilliant sunshine played its part in making the day a huge success.
