Thanks for dropping by and opening my latest wedding  news blog,  if you are from Kilkenny  and planning on  hiring a wedding videographer to record your big day, please keep reading.
Today I am proud to sharing  the following video highlights from the wedding of Martina and Darren  who  tied the knot in St. Canice’s Church, they enjoyed a fab wedding reception in Hotel Kilkenny.

Martina and Darren contacted back in 2015 with a view to having their special day filmed, their wedding was still two years away but they had made a list of wedding suppliers that they wanted to work with, so they were taking no chances on availability.
Here at Drangan Video in Kilkenny we are noticing a changing trend regarding our wedding bookings, couples  are getting engaged then straight away are in to full steam ahead wedding planning, just yesterday we took three bookings for wedding videos in 2020 it seems so far away, I feel very honored that those couples are so impressed by my work  by having Drangan Video on their favorite list of wedding suppliers.

The video coverage of Martina and Darren’s big day began with the ever popular bridal preps which took place in Hotel Kilkenny just a few minutes form the church.  John Delaney was on duty as the official wedding photographer for the day, John and myself  work very well together some of my best wedding films were shot with John, he has a lovey way abut him keeping everyone so  relaxed and smiling.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. Canice’s  Church Fr. Kieran O’ Shea conducted a lovely ceremony his relaxed manner helped  our Bride and Groom  to actually enjoy the ceremony without taking what is often described as a  daunting  task too  seriously.

After the ceremony  our next location was the Castle Park Kilkenny, it is the ideal location for a wedding video shoot, the grounds are so well maintained always in  imaculate condition the lawns are like carpets surrounded  by  multi Coloured flowers and shrubs providing a beautiful back drop for a creative video shoot.

Hotel Kilkenny

Martina and Darren made a good decision in choosing Hotel Kilkenny for what was perfect summer wedding reception in the Orchard Suite, with its  walled garden and separate  entrance  I can only describe it as the ideal wedding reception location in Kilkenny.

Celebrating New Year Engagements

Celebrating your Engagement

As is customary at this time of year, we see couples up and down the country getting engaged and setting their wedding dates for the years and months ahead. For those of you who have gotten engaged this Christmas or New Year, let us be the first to extend our heartiest congratulations to you both. The festive season is now the most popular time for engagements in Ireland and that doesn’t look set to change any time soon.

New Year Weddings In Tipperary

In this article we’re going to give you lovebirds some tips on arranging your engagement party and hope you have the most wonderful time whilst making the plans for your big day. Remember the lead up to the wedding goes so very fast, so enjoy every minute of the planning!

• Decide who is going to host the engagement party.
The first thing you will want to decide is who is going to host your engagement party (who will send the invitations). Are you going to send the invites from yourself or your fiancé or would you prefer they came from a parent or guardian?

• Pick a venue and set a date.
Decide where you would like your engagement party and what date would suit best for everyone attending. Try to stay away from weeknights or Sundays as you may find guests have work commitments the following morning.

• Write your guest list.
It may seem like an obvious step, but many couples forget to do this for their engagement party. This list will be a great help to you at a later date when you are making out the guest list for your big day.

• Set a budget
If you’re hiring a venue for the engagement party, you’ll need to set aside a budget for finger food and perhaps even a round of drinks for your guests. Make a list of all the items you’ll need and try to stick to your budget as closely as you can. Here are a few examples:

1. Venue hire
2. Entertainment
3. Finger food
4. Drinks
5. A cake
6. Videographer
7. Photographer
8. Décor

• Send out the invites
Try to give your guests as much notice as possible so they can arrange time off if required and organise child-care. The more notice you give your guests, the more likely they are to attend your celebrations.

Top Tip: Save on postage expenses by setting up an event for your engagement party on Facebook and inviting everyone with the click of a mouse. For those who are not on Facebook, you can send an email or make a simple telephone call.

Choosing your Rings without Breaking the Bank

In general, we write a lot of our blog posts for couples who are in the process of planning their weddings, however, on this occasion we would like to dedicate a piece to those who are hoping to get engaged in the near future. Over the years in the wedding videography business, we have spoken to brides and grooms in all corners of the country, Cork, Tipperary, Dublin, Kilkenny… the list goes on, and during this time have come across many couples that have to save for years to afford an engagement ring, let alone a wedding. All of these brides and grooms had one thing in common – if they could have saved money on their engagement and wedding rings, they would happily have done so in order to put the savings towards the big day itself.

Wedding blog news Tipperary

With this in mind we have developed a list of tips that may help you to purchase the engagement ring of your dreams without spending a fortune or finding yourself in debt.

1. Diamonds with slight flaws or as they’re known in the industry ‘inclusions’ will cost significantly less than those that are considered the ‘perfect diamond’. To the naked eye or to anyone who is not a diamond expert, these rocks look just as magnificent and will certainly help you to make a saving.
2. Cluster diamonds, which are many small diamonds arranged together, could cost significantly less than one large solitaire diamond and look incredible without breaking the bank.
3. Diamonds of less than 1 carat will always bring down the price, however can look just as impressive and special with the right ring setting.
4. When choosing the metal for your ring, opt for a lower karat grade. Perhaps consider 14k gold over 18k gold for a large saving without sacrificing any quality. Silver and white gold are also excellent options.
5. Buy your diamond ring online. There has never been a better time to shop for wedding jewellery online, with a wealth of styles, cuts and colours to choose from, you can be sure you will find a ring you love and still keep some extra money in your pocket to put towards the big day.
6. For those of you who aren’t keen on diamonds, try some of the more unusual stones on offer such as emeralds, opals, ruby or amber stone.
7. If you’re looking for the appearance of a diamond without the cost normally associated, check out some of the cubic zirconia options that are available in most jewellers in Ireland.
8. Buy your diamonds separately from the ring. We hear more and more from our brides and grooms that they have sourced their diamonds online or on holiday abroad and had them mounted on a customised band in their local jewellers. A great way to save some hard earned cash!
