This is a clip from a recent Wedding Video in Hospital Co. Limerick, I have been looking forward to sharing this one, because as well as been a fantastic wedding there is an
amazing story about a ring that went missing on the morning and turned up late that evening. A big congrats to Eimear Quinn & Tomás Tiernan, Eimear is a native of Hospital and Tomás is proud Tipperary man and a keen Tipperary Hurling supporter, he was very impressed by the fact that Drangan Video has Filmed the weddings of no less than six famous Tipperary Hurlers over the past 3 years, Lar Corbett & Eoin Kelly & Paul Curran are on the present panel and will face Kilkenny in the All Ireland Hurling Final on September 7th next. ” Up Tipp ”
The wedding video begins with Eimear and the girls getting ready at Eimear’s parent’s house just a short distance from the John the Baptist Church Hospital, this highlights clip has already been shared on my dranganvideo facebook page which has no less than 2500 likes. Facebook is a wonderful means by which a wedding supplier can share their work with potential brides to be, sometimes the facebook wedding video highlights clip is the first look for the bride & groom, the wedding dvds then will arrive by post over the following couple of days. Not all couples are happy to share their big day on line that is understandable also.
I enjoy filming wedding videos in Limerick a one hour drive will get me there and it is such a friendly county, just like Tipperary. There was a great sense of fun during the bridal preps, I really like this highlights clip it captures the fun and excitement of the preparations, it is always good to get loads of footage from the Brides house on the morning and then with the help of creative editing skills a wonderful entertaining and emotional production will come together. On our way to the Woodlands Hotel in Adare we stopped off in a wooded area for some great wedding photos and video footage, Selina O’ Meara was the photographer for the day, she is a joy to work with her easygoing and creative style makes her stand out as a truly professional Tipperary Wedding Photographer, her photos are different and that what makes her work exciting and new, she is based in Nenagh Tipperary.

THE MISSING RING : This is a short true story about an engagement ring that went missing on the morning of Eimear’s wedding and turned up 6 hours later on the ground outside the door of wedding reception
The wedding ceremony was in Hospital, Co. Limerick and reception in the Fitzgerarld Woodlands Hotel Adare, Limerick. As usual my video recording began at the brides house which was a 20 min. drive from the church in Hospital on arrival at the brides house the girls were in the usual excited mode, the sun was shining and everyone looking forward to the big event. During the morning the photographer and myself were busy capturing bits and bobs including jewelry and rings which were treasured by the Bride, her engagement ring was a particular beautiful and expensive one and of coarse very close to her heart. Bridal preps went very well everyone happy, Bride slightly nervous but looking forward to the day.
The wedding Ceremony was set for 1pm, we were a little bit surprised by the late arrival of the Bride and bridesmaids because they were all ready to go when the photographer and myself finished up at the house. When the Bridesmaids arrived they announced that the Bride’s engagement ring had gone missing and after lots of frustrating searching it failed to turn up. The Bride was upset on arrival at the church but she decided to put it out her mind and get on with the day hopefully the ring would be found in due time. After the ceremony some of the family returned to the house to search for the missing ring but alas no sign of it, in the meantime Bride & Groom photographer and myself stopped off at a wood on the way to Adare for photos and video footage, we also stopped off at another location where the couple were standing on a grassy bank, at this stage the Bride had put the missing ring more or less to back of her mind and anyway we were very busy with the photo and video shoot.
The Bride & Groom and bridal party arrived at the Woodlands Hotel Adare, Co.Limerick at 4:15pm, they had done a car change outside the gates of the Woodlands, the Volkswagen Beatle that was used to transport the bride and her dad to church was already waiting when the arrived at the hotel gates. After pulling up at the door of the hotel the couple enjoyed a glass of bubbly and then made their way through the main doors to the reception lobby. As we were doing the family and friends photos out in front of the hotel a family member walked over to the bride with an engagement ring in her hand and asked the bride ” is this your missing ring I found it on the ground just outside the front door of the hotel ” the happy bride was was united with her engagement ring and she was over the moon with excitement.
The most likely explanation is that the ring had got attached to the brides dress in the morning as she was getting dressed, and it just happened to fall off the dress right outside the hotel door. What an amazing narrow escape of ever finding the ring again, just thinks of all getting in and out of cars, the photo shoot in the woods, walking along that grassy bank and it was also a pretty breezy day. The ring did not budge until arrival at the hotel door some 6 hours later. A Very Happy Ending 🙂
True Story 🙂
