Fab Wedding Video Langton House Hotel Kilkenny

One of the perks of been a wedding videographer in Kilkenny is the large choice of wedding venues that the city has to offer, all of them are top class locations and most are situated in kilkenny city.
In this weeks Drangan Video blog post we are featuring the wedding of Pam and Sean Dando who were married in Langtons Hotel  they were one of the lucky Irish couples to get married before the covid lock-down in March 2020.

The central  location allows  guests  access to  river walks, Kilkenny Castle, Rothe House, St Canice’s Cathedral,  and all the high street shops that the Marbel City has to offer.

Sean and Pam’s Wedding Video Story

The story begins with Pam and her bridal party getting ready in Pam’s parents house in lower Conahy Kilkenny best known in local GAA circles as the home of the famous Conahy Shamrocks hurling club. It was a brave move for me as a Tipperary supporter making  my way over the county border to record another Kilkenny wedding.
Pam’s bridal preps look great on video, lots of special moments with Pam her Mum & Dad and not forgetting the star of the film little flower girl Isla, who was not in no way camera shy, Pam’s mum lending a hand with the wedding dress is one of my favorite highlights from the morning preps.

Should We Have A Big Or Small Wedding

Here at Drangan Video we are all set for a return next week to shooting wedding videos in Tipperary Kilkenny and up and down the country, cameras and equipment have been checked out making sure that batteries and sound recording equipment are in perfect condition for our busy Autumn wedding  schedule.
We have been chatting with lots  couples over the past six weeks regarding wedding planning post covid lockdown, the question of should we have a big or small wedding is a popular topic.

Should  we have a big or small wedding

When married couples  hear  that a friend  has popped the question and are are in the process of wedding planning  they smile knowingly about all the hard work that is ahead of them. Planning  a wedding is very exciting  but very hard work, just deciding  on the dress you have to think about whether you want the most modern  design or a more traditional wedding dress,  and then  the big question are you going to splash out on a big wedding  or a smaller  more personal celebration with families and very close friends.

Small weddings work well  because you’ll have  more time with  family and friends  you won’t have to greet 250 guests outside the church door which can take an hour from your day,  instead you can mingle with individual  guests at different times during the day at the reception venue. This is worth thinking  about because having   guests are why you wanted to have a wedding in the first place  you wanted  to share the most important day in your life with the people you love. But If you want to invite  lots of people  the  big wedding is the the way to go, you can invite who want and  don’t have to spend hours  looking   at the guest lists  wondering  how you can possibly cut it down.  Everyone can dance a lot at a big gathering  this is a really good reason for having a big wedding if dancing is something that matters a lot to you.

Weddings In Tipperary

Many  couples are comfortable  with a small wedding because they can have it at a venue like a restaurant where  everyone can sit down  chill and eat.  If you are having  70 people or less  say closer to 30, that amount of people might look lost  in a huge venue, It may seem like you have almost no one there which would be disappointing  considering all time and effort put  into planning your big day

 You’ll want to remember your big day.

Here at Drangan Video So many of our couples remark about how the whole is  a blur, they enjoyed their wedding day but they can’t pick out any special moments  from it. That’s not exactly what you want, one  advantage  of a small wedding is that you can relax and enjoy the whole experience  instead of being distracted by so many guests around you all day.

RELATED:

Believe  it or not the job of creating a smaller guest list can be pretty stressful, differing  opinions  can crop up between the bride and groom, each of whom may have small or large families or huge circles of friends who they are  having trouble trimming  down. Big weddings are good for avoiding  arguments about the guest list, you’ll know that you’re both inviting as many people as you want to, anway  who wants to chawing the rag  while planning the most special day in your life

A Small Wedding Could Make People Unhappy

A small wedding could upset people in your life,  friends and family members may not understand your reason  for having  a smaller, more intimate gathering  you may find yourself answering  questions as to why certain people were omitted from the guest list, that doesn’t sound like a good position to be in.
The real question is, what kind of wedding do you really want ?  What is your gut feeling ?  There is for and against  big and small weddings our advice is to go  what your heart is telling you.

Engagement Checklist

If you and your loved one have recently become engaged, let us first extend a hearty congratulations from all the team here at Drangan Video. Now that you have popped the question or said ‘yes’, it’s time to get the wheels in motion and start planning your big day. Planning a wedding can be a most wonderful experience, so it’s important to try to reduce any stress and enjoy every moment. It is with this in mind that we have put together a checklist for you to follow as you start your journey into married life.

Choosing a venue and settling on a date:
One of the very first things you need to do when planning for your big day is choosing a date. For many couples this will go hand in hand with choosing a venue. Make a shortlist of venues that you want to speak with or arrange a viewing for and have an idea of the dates you would like prior to meeting with them. If your favourite venue is not available on the date you would like, then you still have the opportunity to move things around.

Booking the Ceremony:
If you are planning on having the ceremony and the reception in two different venues, it is important that you move fast to ensure you secure availability on the same date. Most venues will be flexible with dates until you sign your contract, so work closely with both the reception venue and the ceremony venue until you have both locations secured.

Choosing your Bridal/Grooms Party:
If you have decided to have a best man and maid of honour, it’s important that you ask them as early in the process as possible. Any bridesmaids, groomsmen, paige boys and flower girls should also be notified as early as possible to ensure these special people are available on your big day.

Booking Suppliers:
Here’s a quick overview of the some of the vendors and services you may require for your big day:

• Videographers (Drangan Video of course!),
• Photographer,
• Celebrant or priest if you are having a religious ceremony,
• Car hire,
• Florists,
