Here at Drangan Video we are very proud of our roots and personally I believe that my home county of Tipperary is amongst the best in Ireland. In my roll as a wedding videographer I have had the pleasure of filming weddings in every corner of our premier county, in this week’s blog post we take a look at some Tipperary’s finest wedding venues which I work in on a regular basis.
Every couple wants their wedding day to be perfect and so it should be. If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue in Tipperary, you can choose between a small and intimate setting and a grand and opulent ballroom. It’s your day, your choice and with a little time researching your options, you’ll find the perfect venue Tipperary has to offer.
Begin with Your Budget
Getting married is a huge step, the first of many you’ll be taking throughout the course of your lives together. Of course you want this day to be lavish and memorable, but you may be working with a limited budget. Even so, as a videographer, I have seen some of the grandest weddings set in parks and gardens that rival those cathedrals. Your day can be perfect if you set your sights on realistic goals. If you can’t afford a luxury hotel and hundreds of guests, that shouldn’t be a problem because there are some enchanting venues that cater to smaller, more intimate wedding parties.
Smaller Wedding Venues in Tipperary
One of the most idyllic venues in Tipperary is Ashley Park House Bed & Breakfast in Nenagh. Set on 76 acres on the edge of Lough Ourna, this quaint B&B provides the perfect getaway for the happy couple and a simple wedding party. The scenery is so lovely, you may never want to leave this bit of Irish paradise. You can hold the ceremony at Ashley Park House or in the church in town. Luncheon will be catered by the staff and you’ll have peace of mind
knowing that your wedding party will be the only guests in the dining room. If it’s small and intimate you’re after, this is it.
In the Grand Scheme of Things
At the other end of the spectrum there are a number of grand hotels that host the luxury weddings Tipperary is known for. You can hold a lavish celebration in venues such as Kilshane House. Built in 320 acres of private parkland, this venue can easily seat 220 people. And, with rooms available on-site, some of your guests may even want to stay here to fully enjoy the celebrations. Similar in size, you could also consider the Dundrum House Hotel that has provisions for more than 200 guests. In the ‘grand’ scheme of things, these are two of the grandest.
Weddings on the Water
If you prefer to be outdoors during warmer weather, why not consider a unique wedding venue at Coolbawn Quay? No, you won’t be expect to walk on water, but celebrating at the water’s edge is something you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Dancing in the moonlight, to the sounds of boats and water gently lapping against the shore, provides an intoxicating enchantment to an already enchanting day. As a wedding videographer, Tipperary weddings on the Quay always hold me spellbound. The amazing visual effects of lights reflecting off the water add a special element that even the best digital video effects can’t duplicate.
To see why I am so passionate about filming weddings, take a few moments to view my Drangan Video Facebook Clips https://www.facebook.com/DranganVideo?ref=hl I have left for you to explore. Each and every wedding I film holds a special place in my heart, and leaves me feeling like part of the family. Whether I am catching those romantic moments as you dance your first dance on the Quay, or filming you as you come together at the altar in a cathedral, I get a special sense of pride knowing you selected me to be a part of this most special day in your lives.
