I am delighted to share another local Clonmel wedding video, Michelle Kennedy and Tommy Keane were married in St. Patricks Church Marlfield Clonmel, followed by their
wedding reception in Kilcoran Lodge Hotel Cahir. This is a nice facebook comment from Michelle ” Michelle Keane It was great having you as our wedding videographer, we couldn’t be more happy with the dvd you did a fantastic job, and we cant recommend you highly enough to anyone getting married. Thanks soooooo much”
Michelle first contacted me in late 2013 regarding a quotation for her wedding video she indicated in her email that she really liked my style of wedding video production, she had already got quotations from other local videographers and had received sample dvds, she did mention that one other quotation was much lower than Drangan Video and that she was considering going with them, she asked me to send on a wedding DVD for viewing and I agreed to hold the day until she had made up her mind. I received an email from Michelle saying that she would be more than happy to go with Drangan Video, she said that she really liked my style of camera work and that my attention to detail and editing skills were great. Michelle & Tommy put allot of work into planning their big day they were very careful about their choice of local professional wedding suppliers in Tipperary. Dave Messinger is a Clonmel based wedding photographer and it was great working with him once again, his was quick and efficient on the day and his shots as always were lovely. Gillian Fennessy is another Clonmel based wedding singer, her magical voice filled Marlfield Church and all guests were moved by her performance, she is also a true professional.
The Video clip features coverage of both Michelle & Tommy getting ready in the morning, its nice to include the boys getting ready its a nice build up to the production. I love recording wedding videos in Marlfield Church the huge window behind the altar is a unique feature of this beautiful old church. St. Patricks Church was designed by Thomas Tinsley, father of the famous architect William Tinsley and forms part of a group of related structures associated with Marlfield House Estate. Built with a grant from the Board of First Fruits, the church occupies the site of an earlier eighteenth-century church and the now-destroyed twelfth-century Cistercian Abbey of Inishlounaght. The church building, although simple in form, has an attention to detailing, in such features as the decorative window tracery, red brick eaves course and the buttresses with their gabled tops. The Romanesque doorway incorporated into the west wall of the interior is a particularly striking feature, and is the best surviving evidence for the ancient abbey. Adding archaeological and historical interest to the site, is a medieval grave-slab to the church interior and that in the graveyard wall, thought locally to be from a crusader’s grave. It has been a popular ceremony venue for weddings in Clonmel over the years.
After a smashing ceremony which was performed by the Rev. Barbara Friday we made our way to St. Patricks Well Clonmel for the photo shoot and and video footage. St
Patrick’s well is located close to the village of Marlfield, a few miles outside of the town of Clonmel. It is well is signposted and can be accessed from the Cahir to Clonmel road and from the Marlfield village. St Patrick’s well is located beside a stream at the base of a limestone cliff. This is a really lovely peaceful spot. As well as being a place of pilgrimage (excuse the pun) it is also a focal point on hot sunny days for families and children who come here to hang out and paddle in the icy waters of the man-made pond beside the well. Wedding Videogrpahers in Tipperary are frequent visitors to the well, it is a popular stop off point for wedding parties who are on route to wedding venues in Tipperary.
It was great to back in Kilcoran Lodge Hotel once again we enjoyed a wonderful wedding reception and the attention to detail by the management and staff was great.

Wedding Tips and Advice : You don’t have the time for planning your own wedding ???
Perhaps hiring a wedding planner might be just the answer to ease your wedding woes. Of course, since weddings aren’t one size fits all, neither is the business of wedding planning. There are many variations on services and different companies may offer different things. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you consider hiring a wedding planner and as you take the time to interview a couple of different professionals.
Are you too busy with work to make time for planning your wedding? For the overwhelmed couple busy with work or graduate school, a wedding planner can be a huge asset for keeping the planning process moving while you are busy living your day to day life. A good wedding planner will help you flesh out the structure of the day, help you find the right location, help curate your vendor team, negotiate your contracts and more. If shortage of time is the main reason you feel you need a planner, be sure to seek someone who gives you confidence in their ability to manage time well, as well as someone well connected with their industry to help put together an amazing team for your big day.
Do you need someone to help bring your vision to life? If you know that you don’t just want your wedding to be nice, you want it to be beautiful and stunning and well thought out with tons of details. You might want to look at event managers these are individuals or companies that don’t just organize your wedding, they create a full experience for your wedding including the look and feel of the celebration. They typically collaborate with you to flesh out your ideas and likes and dislikes and put it all together into a “special event”. You can expect to pay a bit more for a service like this.
Are you mainly worried about the wedding day itself? Some couples delight in the details of planning a wedding. From interviewing vendors to crafting DIY favors, the journey to the altar is half of the fun for these couples. Still, they don’t want to be organizing the event on the day itself. If you are a super organized couple, or you’ve had the help of a mother/sister/friend and have found planning the day to be a delight, you might want to consider engaging a coordinator This is someone who and will take all of your contracts with your various vendors and put together a timeline for the day that includes things like transportation and time for photography as well as when toasts will occur and the timing of your dinner service. On the day itself this person (or team of people) will do all the miscellaneous things you are probably worrying about: setting out your guest escort cards, making sure your dad is ready to give his toast, packing up all of your things at the end of the night for someone to take home. A great Day-of Coordinator can be like an insurance policy that all of the time and money spent on your wedding goes off without a hitch and, should a problem arise, you won’t get stuck dealing with it.
