For me as a wedding videographer based in Clonmel Tipperary I have many advantages , the main one is the close proximity to other Munster Counties that are only short trip. The following video highlights are from the wedding of Bernie Murrihy & Alan Meaney who tied the knot in St. Mary’s Church Granny, Lissycasey Co. Clare.
This was a lovely country wedding, Clare people are renowned for their friendly and down to earth approach to what ever life throws at them they sure do know how to enjoy a wedding. Bernie & Alan’s big day was no different from other weddings that I have recorded in Clare over the years lots of fun and friendly chat through out the day.
Lissycasey is a small village in Clare situated on the Ennis Kilrush road, I arrived in the vibrant little village at 11:30am and had no trouble in locating Bernie’s house, thanks to her accurate instructions. The video begins with the sheepdog opening the door with his front paws and leading me into the busy kitchen which was full of people, on a sad note Bernie informed me that the adorable black and white Collie has since passed away, at least he featured in the wedding Film.
I received a warm Clare welcome from the Murrihys, cups of tea and hot food were on supply and no point in saying no. Bernie was in no hurry about getting ready she was in her elements chatting and joking with neighbors and friends, when she finally got around to getting on the dress I made my way to Alan’s house just in time to grab footage the Groomsmen helping him to put on his tie in the turf shed.
The ceremony took place in Granny a tiny village with a Church a pub and a couple of shops, St Mary’s Church was packed to the doors with friends and relations. The celebrant Fr. Albert O’ Donnell performed a lovely ceremony which seemed to be shorter than the usual church offering. After the ceremony we all headed across to the local bar for refreshments and food and some great traditional music performed by local groups who are friends of both families, it was a pity to have to leave the craic was great but time was moving on and no rest for those of us that were working.
The Inn At Dromoland formally know as the Clare Inn was a very wise choice of wedding venue by Bernie & Alan, the newly refurbished hotel is very up market and for me as a Wedding videographer I would highly recommend it to future Brides in Clare who are looking for a no nonsense top quality venue. The hotel is situated on 450 acres of wooded countryside, there is free parking and is only 10 minutes from Shannon Airport.
Bernie and Alan have allowed Drangan Video to share their wedding on Facebook and also in this blog post thanks to them for that. I enjoyed working with them and as I have already said it was a typical Clare Wedding great company, good fun and above all a smashing down to earth Bride & Groom, thanks to Bernie & Alan for choosing Drangan Video to record their special day.
