This is a wedding highlights clip that I have been meaning to share but because of work commetments it was put on the (” long finger “) an old Tipperary saying by the way. On
December 28th 2013 I traveled to Doneraile in the heart of Cork to film the wedding of Tom Lane & Michaela Duffy it was a sunny bright day and a little on the chilly side. The following highlights clip from their wedding DVD features footage of Tom and the boys getting ready in the morning and footage of the bridal preps, the Drangan Video Diamond Package covers both bride and groom preps depending on the proximity to each other.
It was Tom in fact who contacted me in relation to recording his big day, he had checked out the Drangan Video Website and my Drangan Video Facebook Page, Tom & Michaela were more than happy to share their wedding video highlights facebook.
The wedding video story begins at Park South Guest House which is owned and run by Tom’s mum and the Lane family, the business consists of a high class B&B which is surrendered by a number of modern high class self catering cottages situated in Mallow Co. Cork. The opening footage shows Tom & the boys enjoying a mouth watering full Irish breakfast so the boys were well fed and ready to go to Doneraile Church and wait for the arrival of the beautiful bride. Michaela and the girls were getting ready in one of the self catering homes which was only a short distance from Park South B&B, I was moving between both houses which is something that I like, it helps to make a wedding video more interesting and entertaining.
The countryside around Doneraile is very scenic and has a wealth of historical associations.Doneraile (Irish: Dún ar Aill), historically Dunerayl, is a town in County Cork, Ireland. It is located on the R581 regional road 8 km east of the N20 road which runs from Limerick to Cork. It is about 12 km north of Mallow town. It is situated on the River Awbeg, a branch of the Blackwater. As a wedding Videographer I am no stranger to shooting wedding videos in Cork and I have recorded many weddings in Doneraile Church over the years, its a fine old church with lots of room for discreet wedding video recording.
After the wedding ceremony we stopped off at Doneraile Park for the photo call and some interesting video footage, by this time the winter sun was setting low in the sky and shining through a winter fog, the wedding party were beginning to feel the cold but it was well worth the effort, the video footage was brilliant, I love exsperimenting with light during the camera shoot and in studio at the post production stage.
For anyone who is getting married in the Mallow area it is well worth considering Doneraile Park for the photos and video footage. The Park comprises approximately 166 hectares and is an outstanding example of an 18th century landscaped park in the ‘Capability Brown’ style.Mature groves of deciduous trees, several restored water features and a number of deer herds can be viewed along the many pathways within the Park. The pathways are generally accessible for people with special needs. Doneraile Court, the former residence of the St. Leger family, is situated within the Park. It is be opened to the public following completion of necessary restoration and safety works.
The Charleville Park Hotel is a top class Cork Wedding Reception Venue I always like working there the staff are friendly helpful and efficient. On arrival at the hotel a very entertaining trad band were in full swing in the reception area and Tom & Michaela were happy to join in with guests for some informal dancing and fun, the children also had a ball.
I would like to thank Tom & Michaela for choosing Drangan Video to record their special day, they were a lovely couple to work with and they really enjoyed every moment of their big day, it was a fun wedding and a pleasure for me to have been part of it.
