For those of you who are getting married in Kilkenny in the near future, let us first congratulate you on your engagement! In this blog post we are going to speak a bit about what makes Kilkenny so special for Brides and Grooms and hope to provide some great advice on scenic locations for photo’s and videos, tips on some of the best venues and some general information about the area. If you have any questions or require any further information to assist with your wedding planning, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Eamon here at Drangan Video.
Just last weekend, we filmed 3 wedding videos in the Kilkenny area, so you can be assured that you’re getting some of the most up to date information available!
As most of you will know, Kilkenny has a strong GAA history and we see a nod to this sporting tradition at many of the weddings we attend throughout the county. As Ireland’s most successful hurling county, it’s no surprise that guards of honour with the legendary hurl are one of the strongest wedding traditions in the area. Fancy organising a hurley arch of your own to walk through as a newly wed couple? Make sure you drop plenty of hints to the best man and your intended and we’re sure they’ll get organising straight away!
