Kilkenny is famous for many things: a 13th century castle surrounded by beautiful walled gardens; a vibrant crafts industry; narrow winding cobbled streets and tiny mysterious walk ways transporting back more than 1000 years.
Kilkenny has also become one of the most desirable wedding locations in Ireland, as a wedding videographer I have first hand experience of the rising numbers of couples who chose Kilkenny City as their first choice wedding destination.
In this weeks wedding blog news I am proud to share Christine and Michael’s wedding video highlights one of many recent weddings filmed by Drangan Video.
My first port of call was to Christine’s parents house in Callan to capture some of the fun and excitement of the bridal preps, its my favorite part of the day the excitement and fun is contagious just the perfect start to a perfect day. I like to think that my videos capture the fun and magic of the entire day from bridal preps up to 11pm.
After 30mins of filming with girls it was time to head to Canice’s Church to get set up for the arrival of guests and the ceremony. Saint Canice’s Catholic Church is located at Dean Street in Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny. For any couples planning on getting married this magnificent Gothic-style Catholic church is the ideal choice for any wedding ceremony large or small.
Michael and his team of groomsmen were among the first to arrive, all looking well groomed and tastefully turned out, this groom was having no second thoughts and was certainly well prepared and ready to say yes to the love of his life. Fr. Jim Murphy was the celebrant he is a perfect gentle man and great fun, he willingly sang the Rose of Mooncoin after the meal needles to say it went down a treat with all the kilkenny supporters.
Kilkenny is famous for its lively atmosphere on the many narrow streets which twist and turn around historic abbeys, cathedrals and old city walls. Kilkenny Castle sits in the middle of it all surrounded by beautiful gardens, its a fantastic location for wedding photos and video.
After a short visit to Butler House for the family photos we then took the bride and groom on a walk towards the Parade which has recently undergone refurbishment, as we made our way towards the Left Bank I availed of the opportunity to grab some exciting video footage of the happy couple on a city stroll.
The Parade is gathering place for locals and tourists, with country markets and events regularly held here. On a sunny day you will see people sitting on benches, couples chatting, students sitting in circles talking, skaters whizzing by..
A lovely surprise lay in store for Christine & Michael as they turned on to the parade, a huge colorful Carousel came into view, large numbers of mums, dads and children had gathered for the annual Kilkenny Tradfest weekend. The festival offers an amazing mix of live music performances, music and dance workshops & family activities and much much more.
It would have been a pity not to have included the Carousel on the wedding video, after a little bit of gentle encouragement the bride, groom and wedding party agreed to go for magical journey back in time on board the 18th century Golden Galloper.
Thanks to Christine and Michael for choosing me as their videographer for their special day, they were both a joy to work with, they have also allowed their video to be shared on facebook and twitter and our news blog page.
