On March 18th 2016 I had the pleasure of filming the wedding of Katie and David who exchanged their vows in St. Patrick’s Church Doon, Co. Limerick.
It was a wedding with a difference, just a little bit off center of main stream, coming from a farming back ground in the hearth of Tipperary, country style weddings are very close to my own heart.
The wedding video begins with a visit to Katie’s parents house, where katie grew up and helped out on the family farm. The spring sunshine was beaming down upon the lush green pastures which surrounded the traditional farm house and buildings.
When I arrived the bridal preps were in full swing with a mixture of fun and slightly nervous pre wedding excitement, a beautifully restored V W Camper was the means of transport to the church.
Doon is a litle country village in east County Limerick, close to the border of my own County Tipperary.
Carrigmore Farm Self-Catering accommodation is situated on the grounds of the Cummins farm which is 3 miles from Doon village in County Limerick. The building is south facing, tucked away in a peaceful courtyard of the farm, down a small lane which overlooks cattle grazing in the fields.
Carrigmore, or “Big Rock” in the Irish Language, is a major geological feature in the area. It is a solid rock of flint that was deposited long ago by glaciers. From the house you can look out the back window at the rock to the North and the beauty of the surrounding countryside with the Galtee Mountains in the distance to the South.
Katie has fond childhood memories of climbing Carrigmore and as it happens the ” Big Rock” was her choice of location for amazing wedding photos and stunning wedding video footage. We were transported to base of the rock on the back of a farm jeep, wellies were the order of day for our journey to the summit, it was the most amazing wedding footage that I have ever recorded.
After our expatiation to the Rock it was time to head back over the boarder to my native Tipperary and the superb Ballykisteen Wedding Venue. Set in 170 acres of manicured parkland golf course and gardens, Ballykisteen Hotel & Golf Resort is an exclusive wedding venue in Co. Tipperary, t he gracious Palatine Suite can host up to 280 guests, with twinkling chandeliers and incredible views it is fit for a princess and guaranteed to wow. In my role as a wedding videographer im a regular visitor to Ballykisteen, it is always a pleasant experience the management and staff are so nice to deal with.
Thanks to Katie and David for choosing Drangan Video to film their wedding, it was an amazing wedding the highlight of the day was our trip to the Big Rock. The wedding video features spectacular footage from the summit, the green patchwork pastures of Co. Limerick provided the perfect backdrop for this fantastic HD wedding film.
