Hiring a Drone for your Wedding Video

Here at Drangan Video, we have been providing wedding videography services for over 25 years and have recently added drone videography  to our packages. The trend for aerial images is set to keep on growing and we have embraced all this technology has to offer over the past 2 years. Take a look at some of the sample videos right here on our website to see how drone footage can add an element of drama, beauty and incredible scenery to your wedding video.

Drone Wedding Video

Wedding drone  videography is rising in popularity for couples right across Ireland (and with good reason), however, it is incredibly important that you deal with an experienced operator. While the end result is of course the most important aspect of drone footage, safety is absolutely paramount at all times. The drones we use here at Drangan Video are essentially mini helicopters with an on-board camera that captures images and video footage from an elevated height. We have undertaken in-depth training in order to provide this service and are fully licensed to operate drones within the Republic of Ireland. Don’t risk accidents on the happiest day of your life by hiring someone who lacks the experience or credentials to operate and film with a hi-tech drone.

Planning is essential for drone photography and videography

In the lead up to your big day, we will put in place a full safety plan to ensure our drones never have a negative impact on your big day. We want you to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that the team from Drangan Video are absolute experts at what they do! We will collaborate with any onsite vendors, including your photographer, will scope out the surrounding area and make ourselves familiar with any flight restrictions that may be in place near the venue. Our promise to you is to provide incredible aerial footage of your wedding without ever having to worry about safety or intrusion on your big day.

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and we aim to capture every moment in all its beautiful glory. Our state of the art drones will deliver panoramic footage that is both unique and memorable. Combined with our traditional wedding videography, the drone footage will add something truly special to your wedding video.

Are you planning a wedding in the great outdoors or tying the knot in a particularly scenic part of Ireland? If so, we would love to talk to you about the possibilities that drone footage can bring to your wedding video.

Getting creative with the many possibilities aerial footage offers, means wedding videos will never be the same again. Imagine aerial footage of your guests arriving at the venue, perhaps it’s been snowing and the nearby mountains are capped with white! Maybe you and your bridal party fancy taking a lie down in a meadow on a sunny day and want it captured from above? The possibilities are endless! With our experience and ideas and your imagination, we can provide you with the most memorable wedding video possible.

Wedding Ceremony Options in Kilkenny and Tipperary

Ireland has changed significantly over the past decade and here at Drangan Video we believe this is something to be celebrated! Gone are the days when your only option for a wedding was the church or the registry office, the choices available today mean that all loved up couples in Kilkenny, Tipperary and all over Ireland can now get married in the venue of their choice.

In this wedding blog post, we are going to explore some of the many ceremony options available in Ireland today and discuss how they differ from one another.

Interfaith Ceremonies:
Interfaith ceremonies are marriages between two people of different religions. Depending on the religion, you may be permitted to marry in a religious ceremony that encapsulates both of your faiths, alternatively, inter faith marriages can be performed in a registry office or as a civil ceremony.
Civil Ceremonies:
A civil ceremony in Ireland can take place in any venue that is registered with the H.S.E. Civil ceremonies are non-religious and are legally binding once performed by a registrar on H.S.E. registered grounds.

Catholic Ceremonies:
For many decades, religious ceremonies in Ireland were the only option for couples that wished to tie the knot. That said, Catholic ceremonies are still a popular choice for many couples who have a strong faith and wish to profess their commitment to each other through in their local church or cathedral. Catholic church wedding ceremonies are performed by a priest and are legally binding.

Humanist Ceremonies:
Humanist ceremonies are on the increase in Ireland, with many couples opting for a non-religious, non-faith ceremony. Your wedding should be officiated by a ‘HAI’ certified celebrant – you’ll find a list on the Humanist Association of Ireland website. Humanist weddings are legally binding and are the perfect way to celebrate your big day if you are all faiths or none!

Alternative Ceremonies:
An alternative or independent ceremony is a non-legally binding ceremony that celebrates the coming together of a couple in a unique way. Venues do not need to be registered with the H.S.E., so you can even get married in your back garden if you like! Note that to have your marriage legally recognised, you will need to complete the necessary paperwork.

Wedding Ceremony Locations Ireland

Over the past 25 years, Drangan Video has seen the landscape of weddings change in Ireland. These changes have all been incredibly positive and we are now seeing couples marry in a way that makes them truly happy. In 2019 Ireland, there are no rules, you can marry in a venue of your choosing, you can marry the person you truly love, you can write your own vows, design your ceremony from start to finish, there are no restriction on you as a couple. This positive shift means more of our citizens feel included and for that we are truly grateful.

Celebrating 25 Years of Wedding Videography

If you had told me 25 years ago that my little videography business would still be going strong in 2019, I may have found it hard to believe, yet here we are today celebrating this incredible milestone!

It goes without saying that this would not be possible without the thousands of couples who have trusted Drangan Video with their precious memories. I’m proud to say that in quite a few cases, I am now filming weddings for the sons and daughters of some of my earlier clients and it is an absolute honour for me that they thought that much of my videography that it’s become a family tradition. A huge thank you to all of the couples over the past 25 years, without you and your love for each other, Drangan Video may not have been so successful. Thank you.

25 years wedding videography

Over the past 25 years, I have seen trends change dramatically, from dress styles to catering and décor. However, there has been one thing that has remained constant – Ireland is a wonderful place to get married. In fact this has actually improved over the past number of years because we can now celebrate all marriages equally, it was a long time coming and a hard fought battle but I’m very proud to be part of a generation that made this change happen. All love is equal and our fellow countrymen and women agree wholeheartedly – to be part of this change in society and to witness it first hand has been one of the most emotional and rewarding parts of my 25 years in business.

As well as changes in wedding trends, I have seen huge advances in videography technology and techniques. Thankfully the cameras we use now at Drangan Video are a far cry from the bulky, heavy video cameras I started out with in the 90’s. Improved editing software, high-resolution videos, hi-tech video equipment and advanced video formatting have contributed massively to the service we provide.

Every year for the past 25 years I have had the privilege to speak with and meet new couples who are incredibly excited about their big day. This absolutely never gets old and I love nothing more than capturing their big day on video for eternity.

I get to see the wildest corners of Connemara and the busy city lights of Dublin as well as the castles and scenic views of Tipperary and Kilkenny. I can tell you that a working life simply doesn’t get better than this!

Once again I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the couples that have trusted Drangan Video with their memories and I look forward to meeting future generations so we can add another precious layer to those videos.
