Why hire a wedding videographer in Kilkenny?

You may be undecided at the moment as to whether you would like to hire the services of a professional videographer and that is only natural as costs mount up quite fast. We fully realise that planning a wedding can be a costly experience and know that brides and grooms across the country are looking to make savings where possible. However, we do also meet with a lot of Brides and Grooms who speak longingly about their big day and the regret they have at not capturing every moment to relive in the months and years that follow.

When you hire a videographer, you do so to capture the most important moments of your wedding day. The day goes by so fast and couples rarely get to see everything that goes on around them. With an expertly and discretely shot wedding video, you can take the time to sit down at a later date and relive your big day from a different viewpoint.

Frequently asked questions:

We find that by asking the right questions, you can make an informed decision on whether a wedding video is right for you.

Can I just get a friend to video the wedding on a phone or small device?
As a result of speaking with many brides and grooms up and down the country, we can certainly say that whilst your friend may have all the best intentions, an amateur video will in no way capture all of the ambience and special moments of your big day.

Why should I hire Drangan Video for my Kilkenny Wedding?
Here at Drangan Video we are very familiar with the best locations throughout the county and can therefore recommend the best settings not just for video but also for photography shoots. We will always act with discretion and will in no way disrupt the natural flow of your big day. Our equipment is state of the art and we are extremely professional to deal with.

Will a videographer annoy my guests?

An amateur videographer may very well interrupt or annoy your guests, however, here at Drangan Video we act with the utmost discretion to film moments that may otherwise be left uncaptured. Your guests wont even know we are in the same room!

Can you film at both the ceremony venue and the reception?
Yes certainly, Drangan can offer you an all inclusive package to film at the locations of your choosing such as, the exchanging of vows, in your home during the morning preparations and of course the all important first dance. You simply let us know what you want and we’ll make sure your wedding video is an outstanding success.

Wedding Video In Ballyragget

Vicki and Seamie were married in Ballyragget Kilkenny, I am very proud to be sharing this fab highlights clip from their wedding video.
Once again I had ventured over the Tipperary Kilkenny border to shoot yet another  wedding video in Kilkenny

Ballyragget is a small town in Kilkenny, it is situated on the banks the river Nore in north Kilkenny.

The video begins on the outskirts of Ballyragget with coverage of Vicki and the girls preparing for the happiest day of Vickie’s life, she is finally about to become Mrs Vickie Corrigan.

St. Patrick’s Church  stands proud in the centre of Ballyragget in an area locally know as chapel lane, it is a lovely setting for a wedding ceremony.

Vickie and Seamie enjoyed a nice relaxed wedding ceremony which was  celebrated by Fr. Tommy Murphy.

Vickie and Seamie at Butler House

We stopped off at Butler House Kilkenny for the photos and  video coverage, the garden and interior of the house are a wedding videographers  paradise.  The interior consists  of  a number of magnificent reception rooms, with high ceilings and impressive bay windows. The perfectly maintained  walled garden is ideal for wedding photos, Kilkenny Castle provided a beautiful backdrop for Vicke and Seamie’s photo call.

Langton House Hotel is one the best wedding venues in the south east, my own daughter had her wedding reception in Langtons in 2013, so I am probably been somewhat  bias in stating that Langtons is my favourite wedding venue in Kilkenny

I really enjoyed working with Vickie and Seamie on the day, they were a dream couple, just so relaxed down to earth  and easygoing, they are very happy with their wedding film.

What to do after the big day

In this blog post we are going to talk a little bit about what happens when the big day is over. All those months if not years of planning come to a head on your big day and then all of a sudden you’re wondering what comes next, hopefully this article will give you some tips on how to spend the days following your nuptials.

Stay an extra day

If you are celebrating your wedding at a hotel, it can be lovely idea to stay an extra night with your wedding party, or immediate family. Use this quality time to unwind and reminisce over the big day, you can also use this time to catch up with anyone you may have missed out on mingling with during the wedding breakfast. Many hotels offer an extra night free for the Bride and Groom so make sure you enquire about this at the time of booking your venue.

Make a List

It may be tempting the day after your wedding when you see all those cards and gifts to tear into them- that’s understandable, it’s like Christmas! All those beautifully wrapped gifts and nicely addressed envelopes to you and your new Mr or Mrs. However, make sure you take a breath and remember to make a note of all those generous guests who brought gifts for your big day, you will want to thank those people later. Making a note of who gave you cash and who got you that handy bread maker will mean you’re able to pop a personalised message into each card, instead of writing ‘thank you for your generous gift…’ potentially hundreds of times. It also saves you the embarrassment of realising a few months down the line that you missed someone off the list.

Go on your Honeymoon

Traditionally the married couple departed for their honeymoon immediately after the wedding celebration- we’ve all see that scene in Father of the Bride, right? But, while this is probably out of reach for most couples, looking forward to your honeymoon or even planning a late one will bring great joy for you and your new husband or wife.

Wedding Planning Tips Kilkenny and Tipperary

Hit the Dry Cleaners

In this instance you can probably pass this along to one of the bridal party (if they’re feeling up to it the day after). You’ll likely have a few pictures taken outside after saying ‘I do’ which might mean your beautiful dress has been trailed through the mud, or had a few things spilled on it during the course of the day, not to mention all that dancing. Your wedding clothes may be the most expensive togs you ever invest in so, take care of them by taking them to the dry cleaners as soon after the big day as possible.

Relax

Coordinating your big day, no matter what size it is, can be TIRING, this remains true for all event planning. Likely you’ll have planned treatments before the wedding so you’ll look your best, but why not book a massage in the days following your wedding so you can start married life feeling and looking great too?

Make a Weekend out of it

More and more, we are seeing brides and grooms host a second night of entertainment and celebration the night following the wedding day. Consider hosting an ‘after party’ at your local pub or club and extend the festivities so that you get to enjoy the occasion in a more informal setting. This is a particularly good idea if you have relatives and friends who have travelled to attend your nuptials and allows you to spend some more time in their company before they depart.

Contact Eamon at Drangan Video for a quote, we will be more than happy to offer a special all-in price for two nights coverage of your wedding video in Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford or Carlow Eamon is always on hand to answer any questions you may have.

In this wedding blog article  I’m  sharing  a highlight clip from the wedding of Grace and Richard who were married in the Church of the Assumption Slieverue on June 18th 2016.

The story begins with bridal preps with Grace and the girls, which took place in Grace’s parents house, as I arrived at the house I was amazed by the beautifully landscaped gardens that surrounded the house, Grace’s Dad  has spent years developing and caring for the lawns and gardens,  after the ceremony we came back to the house for family photos and video footage, Dad was feeling very proud.

Orla and Adrian’s Wedding Video Memories Dungarvan

This is a lovely wedding video which I had the pleasure of shooting in Dungarvan Co. Waterford.
The wedding ceremony took place in St. Augustine’s Church Abbeyside Dungarvan you would travel the length and breath of Ireland to find a more beautiful wedding ceremony venue.

Orla and Adrian could have wished for a better day, October 21st 2016 was a beautiful day the weather was unbelievably warm and sunny.
Each year I have the pleasure of traveling to many beautiful parts of Ireland  to shoot weddings videos, Dungarvan Waterford is one of my personal favorites.
Dungarvan is a busy harbor town located at the heart of County Waterford,  It is an ideal base for any tourist wishing to tour or holiday in Ireland’s ‘Sunny South East’.

Orla and Adrian were an amazing couple to work with, they were both so calm and relaxed  they gave me very little direction I was free to go ahead and do my own thing, my style of  recording is very laid back  allowing the couple to enjoy their big day without interruption.

My day began with a call to Orla’s parents house to  grab some footage of the ever important bridal preps, I like to remain discreet during the preps and after a little while I become invisible   to all concerned.
The video clip features some lovely shots of Orla having her make up and hair done, and the girls fussing around her like busy bees.

After the ceremony the bridal party headed to the waterfront to rear of the church in Abbeyside, the sun was still shining it was a brilliant opportunity to record some stunning video footage on the beach.

Middleton Park Hotel Cork

The Middleton Park Hotel  is one Cork’s best wedding venues, the staff are friendly and most helpful, it is a top class hotel and one of personal favorites. Orla and Adrian enjoyed a fab wedding reception, my video coverage of the day continued up to 11pm by which time I had enough footage captured, I was already looking forward to sitting down in studio and producing this wonderful wedding film.
