Here at Drangan Video, we have had a very busy summer and whilst the weather has been somewhat disappointing at times it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of our excited brides and grooms.
This summer has seen us spend time travelling the length and breadth of the country providing videography services for weddings in Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny, Dublin, Galway and Kerry to name but a few. So it’s hard to believe that we’re now facing into the latter half of the year and making plans for Christmas and New Year weddings already, where has the year gone!
Late last year we met with a number of couples who wed this summer in Cork, and asked our advice on the best places for wedding videos and photographs in the Cork region. We were extremely happy to oblige as we are very familiar with Cork County and City and have filmed many events and weddings there over the years. So for those of you who are planning a wedding in Cork and need some ideas for great locations to shoot a special wedding video, we hope you find this useful.
