Drangan Video has been producing documentary style wedding videos throughout Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork and all over Ireland since 2005. During my career as a wedding videographer I’ve seen many descriptions of videography styles been written and talked about but none more than documentary style wedding videos.
It’s a description that has been so misused, it now gives out a confusing message or image of a videographer running around behind trees like a sniper, picking off close up head shots through a long lens, nothing could be further from the truth, is about an unobtrusive style of wedding videography which avoids directing the layout and timetable for the day allowing the couple and guests to enjoy themselves sometimes leaving bridal party and guests wondering if there was a videographer recording the day

Documentary wedding videograpy is often referred to as reportage style wedding films or a news journalist approach to capturing your wedding day footage. What ever terms are used they all refer to a totally unobtrusive approach to shooting a wedding video. Here at Drangan Video we document every wedding with the same hands off approach allowing you to relax and enjoy what will be one of the most memorable days in your life. Finding the right wedding videographer is very important, do loads of research and look at lots of sample videos and reviews.
Documentary style wedding videography captures natural genuine moments from an entire wedding day. If the wedding documentary approach has been truly mastered the finished wedding film will look natural with bride, groom and guests totally unaware that they are been filmed. As with any documentary style of videography the film should convey the true story within the wedding day atmosphere. Documented wedding videos should be able to convey what is happening in the scene without the need for any explanation or credits.
Weddings are the the perfect gig for documentary style videographers, the variety of emotions throughout the day makes a wedding day very special , the morning preps, the pre-wedding ceremony nerves followed by post ceremony celebrations this may be followed by a tear or two during the speeches, an absent family member or close friend mentioned, then the first dance, greetings from guests on camera and the disco.
