January Wedding Carrick-On- Suir

by on Apr.14, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Wedding Video, Weddings

The 2014 wedding season kicked off early in January for Drangan Video  with a number of local weddings in and around Tipperary, this fearured video clip is from

Weddings Tipperary

Weddings Tipperary

the wedding of Aoife & Colin who were married in St. Molleran’s Church Carrickbeg, Tipperary. January 3rd 2014 was a cold but sunny day with the usual spattering of heavy showers, this video clip highlights all the sunny moments from what a lovely wedding in Tipperary.

I arrived at Aoife’s parents house in Carrickbeg at 11am and at that stage wedding preps were in full swing there was a great buzz and excitement was kicking in for Aoife and girls, it was also nice to meet Evoynne Maher who was busy attending to makeup she is a very busy lady I had met her at 4 of my¬† Christmas weddings in Tipperary, she was also did makeup for our daughters wedding in Drangan back in November 2013, continued success to her for 2014 and beyond.¬†¬† Carrickbeg is a village on the southern side of the river Suir in south Tipperary. Carrickbeg comprises as part of the town of Carrick-on-Suir on the southern side of the River Suir, Carrickbeg is a small village within the Town of Carrick-On-Suir in Tipperary.¬†¬†¬† In Carrickbeg, just across the bridge from Carrick-on-Suir in County Waterford, people can discover St Molleran‚Äôs Church. It stands on the site of a 13th-century friary, fragments of which are incorporated into the present building. The Earl of Ormond gave the land to the Franciscans, who occupied the site until the suppression of the monasteries under Henry VIII. The front wall stands as a reminder of the Great Famine; peasants constructed it as part of a work-for-food project in the 1840s.

Aoife & Colin  were really great to work with, as far as recording on the day was concerned I had a free hand to just do my own thing,  Aoife is a really bubbly person which  is obvious  from the above  wedding video highlights clip. There is something special about calling to a house and capturing the bridal preps, the excitement and fun is always somewhat infectious, I remember on that particular day i already had shot 6 weddings back to back and was feeling just a tiny little bit sluggish to say the least.

Tipperary Hurling

When I entered Aoife’s house the fun and laughter was just the¬† kick start that I needed to get another creative camera shoot under way.¬† The wedding reception was in the wonderful Newpark Hotel Kilkenny, its amazing just how many brides in Tipperary are crossing the border to have their wedding reception at Hotels in Kilkenny.¬†¬† I suppose its difficult to name the best wedding venue in Kilkenny because the choice is very broad and the quality of each is equally¬† superb, I must admit that the the Kilkenny Newpark is one of my favorite wedding venues for recording wedding videos. Drangan video is the Newpark’s¬† list of recommended Videographers from Tipperary, tanks for that.

The Health Spa has numerous treatments on offer, everything from Full Body Swedish Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Decleor Body Wraps, Deluxe Paraffin Wax Manicure & Pedicures, Delightful Decleor Facials, the new Carita Anti-Age facial to treatments such as the Platinum Detox, Indian Massage and the Hopi Ear Candling to mention just a few. – See more at: http://www.kilkennytourism.ie/new_park_spa#sthash.06bkQ72i.dpuf

Christmas Wedding in Lyrath Estate Hotel Kilkenny

by on Apr.09, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Wedding Video, Weddings

This is one of my many Christmas Weddings recorded in 2013. Mary Halpin & Tom√°s Mc Auliffe were married on December 30th 2013 in St John the Evangelist

Weddings Lyrath Estate Hotel

Weddings Lyrath Estate Hotel

Church, Kilkenny, followed by their wedding Reception in Lyrath Estate Hotel Kilkenny. This is the highlights clip from the wedding DVD, very nice. Mary & Tomás received this  highlight clip by email shortly after they had returned to Australia, the DVDS duly arrived later by post.

The camera shoot began in the Bridal Suite at Lyrath at 11am which allowed one hour before heading down to St. John’s Church to capture the boys arriving.¬† Tom√°s is a native of Limerick and Mary is from Dublin they are currently living in Australia, I suppose planning a wedding from another country is considered that little¬† bit more difficult, it was a really well planned wedding and a very enjoyable day for bride & groom, family and friends. St. John’s Church is one of the most popular wedding Ceremony Venues in Kilkenny, if you are considering having your ceremony there it is advisable to book well in advance of your preferred wedding date.¬† St John‚Äôs Catholic Parish consists of a city area and two rural areas, Dunmore and Johnswell ‚Äď each with its own church. The main church, St John‚Äôs, is situated opposite MacDonagh Shopping Centre and the Railway Station on the Dublin Road (N77).
The parish is administered by the priests who form the Parish Leadership Team, and by the Parish Pastoral Council, made up of priests and lay people working together for the spiritual and material good of all members of the parish.  As a Wedding Videographer from Tipperary i sometimes feel in awe of the fantastic selection of Churches In Kilkenny, beautiful old buildings which are steeped in history.

Nick O’ Keeffe was the photographer for the day¬† it was a pleasure meeting and working with him again, we have shot lots of Weddings In Tipperary and Kilkenny¬† over the last few years. Nick was the 2013 Weddingsonline Wedding Photographer of the year, his work is amazing and he is a lovely guy to have on board on your wedding day. We always recommend each other for weddings in Kilkenny and other counties.¬† Lyrath Estate Hotel was the Reception venue it is just one of many super wedding venues in Kilkenny.¬†¬† Lyrath Estate Hotel provides you with the ultimate Kilkenny wedding venue.¬† An amazing picturesque setting coupled with the expertise and professionalism of their management team and staff, guarantees your wedding guests a uniquely memorable experience. Weddings at the Lyrath Estate Hotel Kilkenny are a speciality. With fine cuisine as their trade mark, a tantalizing mouth watering experience is always guaranteed on your wedding day.

Wedding Video Lyrath Kilkenny

Wedding Video Lyrath Kilkenny

The perfect Wedding Hotel in Kilkenny. Lyrath’s 17th century house has been immaculately and lovingly restored for magical weddings. Combined with new additions, this creates a perfect marriage between a bygone era and the present day. No matter how traditional or contemporary your Wedding Day, Lyrath Estate Hotel provides it all in one of the most unique wedding venues in Kilkenny. Lyrath alows a wedding videographer to explore every vantage point to capture those pure and magical moments, amid rolling hills, tranquil lakes and unspoilt views, I just love everything about Lyrath and Im looking forward to shooting numerous wedding videos over the coming months.

As I finish writing this post the April sunshine is beaming in through my studio window, Christmas 2013 seems like a distanct memory, the day that Mary & Tom√°s were married was showery, cold and windy but thank God we got some lovely footage between the showers. I enjoyed recording and working with Tom√°s & Mary on the day, they are a smashing couple and i am delighted to hear that they are very happy with the finished production.

Thanks for  reading my latest post.

Fab. Wedding Venues In Limerick

by on Mar.26, 2014, under Video, Wedding Video, Weddings

I had the pleasure of travelling to Limerick last weekend to record two

wedding videos, it was a wedding in Knocklong on Friday, followed by a wedding in Crecora on Saturday. A big congratulations to both couples Louise Corbett & Brian O’ Shea and Gillian McNamara & Adrian Murphy. I am writing this blog post just to share my experience of two wonderful wedding venues in Limerick.

The Limerick Strand Hotel  is renowned for its beautiful setting, situated at the Ennis side of Sarsfield Bridge  and lends itself quite magically to becoming the dream Wedding Venue .  They  have quickly gained an excellent reputation as a fab setting for Weddings In Limerick.  The service and food making your Wedding Day one to remember.  Dramatic views of the River Shannon and city skyline all make for spectacular wedding video  opportunities.  I found the management to be most helpful and accommodating  towards making sure that I missed nothing on the day, the manager was very tuned into my needs as the official wedding videographer for the day, just little things like turning up the lights for the speeches  and giving  me  the frequency setting for the  microphone. I am looking forward to recording many more Weddings in Limerick and hopefully returning  to the Strand Hotel.

The Fitzgerarlds Woodlands Hotel  is one of my favourite wedding

Lovely Sunny Wedding Video Holycross Abbey

by on Mar.20, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Weddings

I still have great memories of summer 2013, as usual it was another

Happy Tipperary Bride

Happy Tipperary Bride

really busy year for Drangan Video and of coarse the added bonus of a long hot summer helped to make it an unforgettable year for recording wedding videos.  Caroline Savage & Eamon Tuohy celebrated their wedding ceremony in Holycross Abbey Tipperary, followed by a wonderful wedding reception in Ballykisteen Hotel, Tipperary.

I met up with Caroline and the girls at 10:30am which allowed great time for the recording of Bridal Preps. Caroline’s house is just off the Square In Thurles on a quit side street.¬† After getting some initial¬† shots of the dress, shoes and jewellery, I hopped in the car with the girls as they headed for Ni Riain Hair Salon, on Slievenamon Road Thurles,

It's a walk in the park

It’s a walk in the park

excitement was  running high at this stage, we returned to the house after 30 mins.  and continued with the Bridal Preparations, I headed for Holycross  at 11;45 just in time to capture the boys arriving at the Abbey.  I have been recording Wedding Videos In Tipperary for more than 17 years and of all the Wedding Ceremony Venues in Tipperary &  Munster  Holycross Abbey is with out dough the number one for Brides in Tipperary. One of my personal  highlights of each visit to the Abbey is meeting Pat who is the church sacristan  he has a really dry sense of humour we always have a joke and a chat, he is part of the set up in Holycross and things would not be same without him, long may he continue.

Caroline & Eamon were just great to work with, they were both so friendly and easygoing,¬† Aileen Kennedy was the wedding photographer, she is a pleasure to work, we are booked and sharing¬† allot of¬† weddings in Tipperary for 2014/2015/2016¬† I love the style and detail of her work and she has a pleasant personality.¬† On arrival at Ballykisteen we soon made our way out to the golf coarse grounds for photos and some fun with the golf buggies.¬†¬† The Ballykisteen Hotel & Golf Resort is one of Co. Tipperary’s most perfect wedding venues, it is in an area steeped in Tipperary History,¬† the award winning Ballykisteen hotel is set in 170 acres of beautiful grounds against the brooding shadows of the Galtee Mountains. The resort offers a wide range of facilities.

Thanks again to Caroline & Eamon for choosing Drangan Video to record their big day I am very¬† happy with all the local bookings for Weddings In Tipperary for 2014, 2015 and 2016.¬†¬† Just a couple of words on the price of Weddings Video Packages , it is fair to say that in recent times some Wedding Videographers¬† did indulge in a race¬† to the bottom on pricing and I suppose the idea behind it is to try to¬† increase their bookings.¬† I was recently¬† in contact with a couple of professional full time Wedding Videographers who are based in Tipperary,¬† like myself they have not been offering bottom end prices for their services¬† and they are happy to report that bookings are very strong going forward, today’s brides 2 b¬† are very well informed and tuned in to what they are looking for from a wedding Videographer.¬† A high quality¬† Wedding Film Production combined with realistic pricing and a large choice of flexible packages¬† is the order of the day.

Short or Long Wedding Films

by on Mar.16, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Wedding Video, Weddings

One of the most common differentiators between wedding

Short Wedding Videos

Short Wedding Videos

videographers is the length of the final film that you receive, and there are two main types, long or short.  As I would describe it, long is more like  a feature-length film, with the ceremony and speeches in their entirety.   Between these two main sections of the day is the story of the day, establishing shots of the venue, guests mingling, the evening reception, Vox Pops  and the guests dancing etc.

Just before I continue this post, I would like to congratulate the Boys Of The Monastery School, Tipperary Town on a wonderful  School Show which was performed in the The Simon Ryan Theatre also know as the Excel Centre, Tipperary.  They put on a show every two years and Drangan Video have been recording their productions for more than 8 years now.  This years show was staged over two nights March 12th & 13th 2014.  The DVDS will be available from the school early next week, my turnaround on large volume  DVD orders is really fast now, thanks to the introduction of a new automated ink jet  disc production system, which is combined with a new high  speed laser  printers for sleeve printing.  producing orders in excess of 400 dvds   is a seamless operation  thanks to addition of the  very  latest editing software.  ( toys for big boys ).

Short wedding videos:   vary quite a bit between 5 minute trailers and 15 minute highlights. What these edits generally provide is a less comprehensive  story of the day, normally focusing on the bride and groom with less  guests and snippets of the ceremony and speeches.  I suppose I speak for most Wedding Videograpers when I say that we currently offer are long, feature-length Wedding Films, but it’s something that’s always on my mind.

Short Film:  The argument for shorter films is that they’re more interesting to watch, especially to those that don’t know the couple very well. What this often means is that Wedding Videographers

Wedding Film Production

Wedding Film Production

like to show off their work to other industry professionals  and of course potential Brides & Grooms  this is a lot easier to do that with a 5 minute wedding film than a 45 minute film. This is also an odd one because the wedding video has been commissioned by and is being produced for the bride and groom. What other people think  especially those that don’t know the couple   is completely  irrelevant.  Of course work can be appreciated by these people but whether they think it’s entertaining or not doesn’t matter.

Feature Films:  Drangan Video  produce feature length films 2 hours long max: and always have. The main argument against them is that they’re boring because they’re too long.   We have created a huge amount  of  feature-length wedding videos in Tipperary and Munster  to date and not one single couple has had anything but positive remarks regarding the length and amount of content.  Along with my main feature length films I also include a highlights clip as a  separate  chapter point on the DVD  which is a 6-9 minutes minute edit which does what it says on the tin: provides a short highlights wedding video of the day, Drangan Video will also share this clip on Facebook  and on the website.  Couples love this because they are  able to show friends, family and those who live abroad. The couple experience the best of both worlds: a long feature film and a short highlight video

 A lot of videographers don’t particularly state how long their films are, so be sure to check. And if they do only offer a short film, remember

Drangan Video Facebook

Drangan Video Facebook

that whilst that might be great to show off within the 6 months following your big day, a wedding video should be a memory of the day for the rest of your life and the extra content you get with a longer film is priceless, particularly when it comes to your guests.  The typical length of a Drangan Video Wedding Film is 2 hours and that includes a 6 minute short edit on the same disc.

Galway Girl Wedding Highlights Video

by on Mar.10, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Wedding Video, Weddings

And I ask you friends, what’s a fella to Because her hair was black and her

"Lost My Heart To A Galway Girl"

“Lost My Heart To A Galway Girl”

eyes were blue.
And I knew right then, I’d be takin a whirl Down the Salthill Prom with a Galway Girl.¬† Well Jason Lavelle did loose his heart to a Galway Girl and her name is Majella Gormally, this is the highlights clip from their wedding video.

I suppose with 90% of my weddings¬† in Tipperary & Kilkenny, it is somewhat refreshing to set foot in a completely different county, anyway¬† its a change of scenery.¬† I was on the road by 8am and heading for Maree, Co. Galway to record the wedding of Jason & Majella, I arrived at majella’s house by 11am with the help of very good directions from Jason and¬† sat-nav coordinates.¬† Majella requested a minimum¬† of coverage of herself and the girls getting ready, so then I headed off to St’ Joseph’s Church Maree in good time for the arrival Jason and the boys.¬† It is a small country church and is lovely and bright¬† inside with lots¬† of natural daylight on on all sides.¬† Maree is very close to¬† Oranmore which really is the best of both worlds, rural and suburban, historic and modern! It is situated 10 minutes drive from Galway city, at the crossroads to all major driving routes; Galway, Sligo, Dublin, Shannon, Limerick and Killarney. With an estimated population of over 7,000 residents and growing, a variety of employment opportunities, four national schools and one secondary school, Oranmore truly is a wonderful place to live or visit.

Galway Bay Hotel

Galway Bay Hotel

 

Jason & Majella had their wedding reception in the The Galway Bay Hotel & Conference Centre which is situated close to Galway city centre, near award winning beaches and located on the famous Promenade in Salthill. The 4 Star Galway Hotel  is one of the best hotels in Galway, and is ideally located for tours to Connemara and the West of Ireland or to enjoy a host of water based activities around Galway.  Located just 5 minutes from Galway City, and in the very heart Salthill, you can enjoy all that this vibrant city has to offer. Whether you are visiting Galway for the Galway Races, the Galway Arts Festival or for a leisure break, the Galway Bay Hotel is ideally located for your stay.

It was a pleasure working with Jason & Majella, their wedding dvd turned out really good and this wedding highlights clip has already been shared on my Drangan Video Facebook page

“You Must Like Your Wedding Videographer”

by on Mar.05, 2014, under Eamon's Latest News, Wedding Video, Weddings

Having a  videographer  has become a must rather than a want at

Like Your Videographer

Like Your Videographer

weddings.  That is because no matter how wonderful your photographer is, there is nothing quite like watching the real thing in real time.  However, trying to convince the bride that videography is just as important as photography on their wedding day is one of the biggest challenges in the industry.  Many brides don’t realize how important their film is until after the wedding.  Consequently, more newly-weds, nearly 98%, now recommend that couples have their weddings professionally filmed.   When looking for a videographer, there are five main points you should keep in mind.  These will more or less help decide which one is the right fit for you.

1.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† We must have¬† a wedding video.¬† Sounds obvious, I know.¬† Weddings are special and intimate.¬† They require someone with an extensive knowledge of how to get the important shots,¬† yet be respectful and discreet at the same time and especially during the wedding Ceremony.¬†¬† Wedding videographers have a passion for what they do and you will want that reflected in your video.¬† However, a surprising amount of couples will hire someone who bought a camera, shot a friends wedding, and then knighted themselves a videographer.¬† Another misconception is that all videographers are the same.¬† You may have a friend in the ‚Äėtelevision and film industry‚Äô that is willing to shoot your wedding for ‚ā¨500,¬† but weddings are completely different from any other type of film production.¬† Paying a premium for someone with years of experience in wedding videography will pay off in the final production

Wedding Planning

Wedding Planning

2.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Do you like your videographer?¬† Again, this may sound obvious, but it remains one of the key factors that will determine whether or not you will like your wedding video.¬† You will be spending a lot of time together on your wedding day, and will likely be staying in contact for many months after.¬† Having a good rapport with your videographer ensures that they know what is important to you.¬† Good wedding videographers¬† know that your wedding day is about you and not them.¬†¬† They should get your vibe,¬† get your relationship and not cramp your style.¬† You should steer clear of anyone with a ‚Äėdiva-like‚Äô attitude who is unwilling to be a bit flexible.

3.       Consider the shooting style.  Do you like videos with lots of movement?  Do you like traditional or cinematic?  Every wedding Videographer has his or her  own style of shooting.  When you are doing your research and visiting different videographers sites,  pay attention to what you like.  When you meet with the videographer, you should have the opportunity to see a range of different weddings.  Do the videos hold your attention, or did you get bored after a minute or two?  Chances are, if you enjoy watching a video of a total stranger, then you will love your own wedding film.

4.       Consider the editing style, I think that it is very important that your weeding video is actually edited and produced by the person that shot

Wedding Video Editing

Wedding Video Editing

the wedding.¬† I could not¬† ever¬† consider¬† handing over my¬† camera footage over to someone¬† else¬† for editing.¬† There are lots of different ways your wedding video could end up looking,¬† so make sure that you like the editing style of your videographer and dont forget to ask as to who will be editing and producing your wedding video.¬† Simple is better.¬† Couples think that adding in a myriad of special effects will make their video more interesting.¬† Usually the reverse is true; it ends up making the video dated.¬† Good shooting to begin with needs very little ‚Äėdressing up‚Äô in the post production.¬† However, note that it is normal to have a few minor errors and over shoots¬† during a long video.

5.       It isn’t all about the price.  If you are solely basing your choice on price, then you may be in for a huge disappointment when your wedding video arrives.  It can be overwhelming, even shocking sometimes, when you start to price out videographers.  But when you consider that 9 out of 10 brides polled after their wedding regret not hiring a videographer, it puts a different spin on things.  Be sceptical  of cheap quotes,  its also a little bit suspicious when a videographer dose not display a price list on his website, chances are that he is quoting different prices for each wedding or hiding from the tax man.  Creating a quality wedding video requires a good length of time and extensive, up to date equipment.   When you pay for a videographer’s service you are paying for his talent of shooting and the time it takes to edit the footage.  You should plan to pay almost  as much

Happy Weddings Tipperary

Happy Weddings Tipperary

as you would for a professional photographer.

Professional wedding videographers should use state of the art cameras, wireless microphones, have a second shooter or assistant, backup equipment, and offer add-ons such as a Love Story or Same Day Edits.  A number of professional wedding videographers in Tipperary are offering a  Same Day Edited Video Clip which is shown in the function room just before the first dance, its a lovely idea and your guests will love it.  So there you have it.  Wedding videography is often the most overlooked purchase for weddings in Tipperay and Ireland but those who have invested in a quality wedding videographer will heartily agree that it was one of the best decisions they have made.

Here are a few important questions and considerations when selecting a Wedding Videographer.

1 Website :  A busy website is a sign of busy Wedding Videographer, his/her  site should contain loads of recent Wedding Samples and regular blog posts.  All wedding packages should contain  a price list. The videographer should have strong and busy Facebook Page showing recent video clips  (not just stills)  and  with comments from followers.

2 Style :  You should be drawn to his/her particular style of production as seen on his website, the videographer should be more than happy to let you have a full wedding Video for viewing.

3 Recommendations :  from other couples is a big plus, here at Drangan Video In Tipperary  60% of  our bookings come as referrals from  couples who have used Drangan Video to record their Wedding Day. The remaining 40% of bookings come from the website www.dranganvideo.com  and the  Drangan Video Facebook Page.

4 Price :¬† this in my opinion is not the most important consideration, the quality of the work is¬† probably what has drawn your attention¬† to a particular Wedding Videographer.¬† There are quit a few Wedding Videographers in Tipperary and Munster who are all generally working for the same price,¬† average price ‚ā¨950 depending on the package.

5  Full Time Videographer :  There are many parktime videographers who hold down a full-time  job and record Wedding Videos in their spare time at the weekend.  It might be no harm to ask if he/she is working full-time  as a videographer, I dont believe that it is possible to give 100% commitment to two jobs.

6 Editing :  will the videographer be shooting and editing his/her work, this is something that I am most passionate about. When a camera man  is shooting a wedding video he will get a feel for the wedding and all the fun and emotions that he is capturing on the day.  I  seldom use the same style of recording for any two weddings.  I am always thinking  ahead to the the post-production and editing stage,  this why I always edit my own camera footage.  I know many local videographers in Tipperary who would agree that editing their  own camera footage is a must for a professional looking Wedding DVD.

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog post :

Warm regards.

Wedding Video Cork

This is one of many Weddings In Cork which I had the pleasure of

Wedding Video Cork

recording during 2013,  its always nice to travel to the Rebel County  and as always to experience a great  friendly Cork Welcome.  Melanie Hennessy and Stewart Davis were married in the Church of the Immaculate Conception Clonakilty, this the highlights clip from their wedding video.

This is my second Wedding In Cork for the Davis family, Stewart¬† is a son of Eddie Davis from Euro Tech Clonmel, I recorded Stewart’s sister’s wedding early in the year.¬† I have been dealing with Euro Tech for a number of years now and I must say that Eddie Davis operates¬† a truly professional Office Supply Business.

Stewart & Melanie’s wedding Video begins¬† with bridal preps at Melanie’s parents house which is the the Town of Clonakilty and overlooks the Church of the Immaculate conception.

Wedding DVD Cork

Wedding DVD Cork

This impressive Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception was built in 1880.  The church is located at the west end of the town and is worth a visit.  I love working in this beautiful church, it is one of the best Wedding Ceremony Venues in Cork.  Recent renovations during the 1990s have restored the interior of the church to its former splendour.  In the gables of the nave and transepts are three large wheel windows, while the apse-shaped sanctuary has stained glass lighting which represents the Nativity. the Visitation and the Assumption of Our Lady. The spire was erected in the 1890s and the bell was installed in 1898. The columns of the nave arcade have capitals and sub-bases of granite, bases of limestone, and shafts of Aberdeen polished granite.

Stewart & Melanie enjoyed a fab Wedding Reception in the award winning Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens.  Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens in Clonakilty is the leading Wedding Venue in West Cork, and have organised many fairytale weddings for nearly 50 years ranging from smaller intimate weddings up-to  280 guests.  The  hotel boasts fabulous new landscaped gardens with stunning backdrops like a rose garden, gazebo and beautiful water features.

There is also a dedicated garden party area with a permanent garden marquee that fits 250 people.¬† I always manage to get myself and camera¬† fixed on the back of the golf cart which is used to transport Bride and Groom and Guests to and from the the marquee,¬† it’s¬† always great fun footage to have in the bag for editing.

I suppose it’s fair to say that¬† it is¬† easy to get carried away with all the

excitement of planning a wedding In Ireland  choosing bridesmaid dresses, selecting a Wedding Band or a Wedding Videographer, deciding on a table plan for your guests,  but there is a lot of paper work for you to get sorted.  This more practical stuff   may seem like an absolute headache and can be very confusing, but these documents and steps are essential, as they are legal requirements.  Don’t forget, marriage is a legal contract so without them there will be no  Wedding Ceremony.

If you are  considering having  a Catholic Wedding Ceremony In Ireland, it must be performed within a Church and  three months notice must be given.  So your first job is to  contact the church you wish to get married in to see if your preferred wedding  date is still  available.

You can opt to get married in your own local parish or another parish,¬† if¬† you have¬† your heart set¬† on a Sunday wedding,¬† check¬† with the church in question, because¬† some for instance¬† will not permit¬†¬† weddings In Tipperary¬† on a Sunday,¬† the same¬†applies to Holy days such as Good Friday.¬† If you are getting married outside your parish, you might¬† have to ask¬† your own priest to perform the ceremony.¬† What about payment for the ceremony?¬† while there is no set rule about a fee, it is best to talk to the church in question about the¬† kind of payment¬† that¬† is required.¬†¬† You will¬† also¬† need your baptismal cert which may be obtained¬† from the parish where you were baptized.¬† You will need a separate confirmation certificate if it’s not included¬† on your baptismal cert. This can also be obtained¬† from the church where you were confirmed and it¬† must be issued within six months of your wedding.

Letter of Freedom : The general  is that you should have a letter from each of the parishes you have lived in for more than six months since you were 18 years of age.  The purpose of a letter of freedom is to show  that you are  free to marry,  so if you are having difficulty finding your local parish, speak to the priest that is marrying you, as he will be able to advise you on alternative options.  For example, in some cases it may be acceptable for each party to ask a parent or somebody who has known them all their lives to write a letter stating their relationship to them, and that to the best of their knowledge, he/she has never been married.

Each person getting married in a Catholic Church must have a ‚ÄėPr-Nuptial¬†¬† completed by the priest from

their local parish  this will state  that you’re free to marry and that you understand the sacrament of marriage.  However, if you are finding it difficult to get in touch with your local parish, again speak to the priest who is marrying you as he will be able to advise you on how to go about it if your partner is not Catholic, you will need to get a  Dispensation  from the  Bishop. Contact you local priest to discuss this further.

Pr-Marriage Course  If you are getting married in a Catholic Church, you may be required to complete a per-marriage  course , to obtain a certificate of completion check with your priest regarding specific requirements.  Anyone getting married in Ireland, in a Church or elsewhere, must give a minimum of three months notification to the state of their intention to marry.  Once you provide all the relevant documents and answer a series of questions  which prove  that you are  free to marry, the Registrar will issue you with a Marriage Registration Form  it is like a marriage license and gives authorisation for a couple to get married in Ireland.  This must be signed by you both on the day of your wedding as well as your two witnesses and the priest, and then returned to the registrar you attended, no later than one month after the wedding. If the marriage doesn’t take place within six months, a new MRF will be required if you still intend to marry.
