This is one of the many Christmas weddings filmed in 2016 by Drangan Video, Mairead and Derek celebrated a heart warming wedding ceremony in Castlewarren Church Co. Kilkenny on December 27th 2016.
I like Christmas weddings, the winter light poses a certain challenge for wedding videographers and photographers, I certainly like a challenge some of my best wedding videos were shot on cold winter days.
Castlewarren is a small village in County Kilkenny, Ireland, located some 4 kilometres north of the N10 national primary road at Flagmount very near the Kilkenny Carlow border.
I arrived in Castlewarren at 11am which allowed ample time for a visit to Mairead’s parents house to capture highlights of the bridal preparations. Mairead was a very calm easygoing bride and very well organized, all the careful planning had paid off so not care in the world on this very beautiful bride it was her perfect Christmas wedding.
After the wedding ceremony we headed for Leighlinbridge which sits on the banks of the River Barrow. The Millennium Gardens was our location for the wedding photos and video shoot, the area consists of small gardens, the garden tells the story of life through a series of themes, including peace and tranquility, happiness, friendship, reconciliation, hope, harmony and eternity. I love shooting wedding videos in the Millennium Gardens it is a personal son favorite of mine.
Mairead and Derek enjoyed a fabulous wedding reception in the award winning Lord Bagenal Hotel, the wedding team are very dedicated and always strive to make everything possible for couples on their wedding day. Mairead and Derek had their wedding reception in the spacious, bright and seasonally decorated Marina Room, for summer weddings the huge function room offers unique and exclusive view of the marina and the River Barrow. The Waterfront Restaurant is great for smaller wedding celebrations it will cater for 70 guests.
I really enjoyed been part of Mairead and Derek’s wedding day, they were a lovely couple to work with, they gave me very little direction on how to film their special day, I was more than happy to work quietly and discreetly in the background.
