Fun Wedding Video Highlights during Kilkenny Tradfest Weekend

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.
