Summer 2014 has been been amazing with lots of warm sunshine shining on the the Premier County of Tipperary, it is almost September so we are heading into Autumn with
lovely memories of a long hot Summer. As a wedding Videographer in Tipperary it has been a busy year for me with an ever increasing amount of local Weddings in Clonmel, Fetahrd, Cashel and Thurles coming my way ” Local Is Best”. This weeks featured Wedding Video Clip is that of Emer & Niall who were married in Powerstown Church, Clonmel in May of this year, it is a smashing wedding video and I am delighted to share this highlights clip in my latest Drangan Video blog post.
Emer & Niall are both from the scenic area of Powerstown in Clonmel. The parish of Powerstown Lisronagh is situated just outside Clonmel. It is a scattered parish, stretching from the river Anner on the east, to Rathkeevin on the west, encroaching up to Drumdeel near Fethard, Castleblake to the north, Two mile bridge and Silversprings to the south and skirting Clonmel on the north to Cahir road. It is a growing parish with 850 households. It has two churches Powerstown and Lisronagh. Powerstown Church was built in 1810 during the pastorate of Fr. Felix Cleary and is the sixth oldest in the diocese of Waterford and Lismore.Lisronagh Church was built in 1831 during the pastorate of Fr. Michael Wall.The Patron Saint of both churches is St. John the Baptist. I am a frequent visitor to Powerstown Church for wedding videos in and around Clonmel.
This entertaining highlights clip begins with two gentlemen in disguise, wishing the bride and groom all the best for the future, they quickly remove there disguise to reveal their real identity, very funny stuff. Emer got ready from her parents house which is just off the Fethard road on route to Clonmel, Emer has a really bubbly personality and a beautiful warm broad smile ” a very happy bride ” I stopped off at the house on my way to Powerstown Church two hours before the ceremony and recorded some great bridal preps footage, I was back at the church in time to grab footage of the Niall and the boys arriving, they arrived in good time. Niall is also a bubbly guy and very easygoing, not a bother on him he just took the day in his stride.
Emer arrived just about 10 mins late which of coarse is the tradition in ireland and Tipperary brides are no exception to that rule, one lovely feature of wedding videos in Powerstown Church is to capture the bride and her dad walking up the pathway from the church gate, always looks great on video. Fr. Anthony O’ Connor was the wedding celebrant he always provides an interesting wedding ceremony, which dose not go on for too long. After the ceremony the sun was splitting the stones and the guests were not in any particular hurry to leave the church grounds, and ice cream stand was set up at the church gate and it was in great demand, the clip shows Emer & Niall enjoying a cone, before heading off for photos. We went back to Niall’s parents house in Powerstown for the photo call.
