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.

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.

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.

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.

Essential Wedding Planning Tips and Tricks

This week we are going to give you some insight into the very best wedding planning tips and tricks to help the wedding planning process go smoothly for you and your intended. Drangan Video offer professional wedding videography services in Kilkenny and nationwide we are always on hand to provide expert advice to our budding Brides and Grooms. To enquire about the packages we have on offer, please feel free to get in touch with Eamon here at Drangan and he’ll guide you through the many options available.

Tip 1: Guest numbers are important
Now that the excitement of the engagement celebrations are over, it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty! You don’t need to make up a precise guest list at this stage, but having an approximate number will greatly assist you with the rest of your planning.

Tip 2. Check your dates
When choosing a date to get married, most of us never think of issues that may arise, but it’s incredibly important to check the calendar before you commit to a date. Public holidays and big local event days are probably best avoided as they can increase hotel rooms costs for your guests and may be problematic for those driving in heavy traffic to celebrate your big day.

Tip 3: Pay attention to mother nature (particularly in Ireland)
Whilst we all dream of a day with blue skies and endless sunshine, it’s always essential that we plan for every weather eventuality. Planning a wedding in July in Ireland does not guarantee sunshine so keep an eye on the forecast and prepare for any last minute changes to the weather.

Tip 4. Ask for recommendations
Once you have booked your venue, it’s time to start looking at your other wedding vendors. We have found that most hotels and vendors keep a preferred supplier list, which they are more than happy to share with couples. Let one vendor lead you to another and know that when you support local small businesses, your wedding is making a real difference to those who are self-employed.

Tip 5. Stick to your budget
When setting your budget, it’s important to remember that 50% of your wedding expenses will be spent on food and drink for you and your guests. With this in mind you may want to consider a number of different catering options to assist with budget management.

Tip 6: Always ask
Don’t be afraid to ask your venue for those little extras at no extra cost, if you don’t ask, you don’t get, right? Most venues are happy to throw in something extra free of charge, whether that’s some music upon arrival, a free round of drinks for the toasts or a reduced price for guests staying at the hotel. Don’t feel shy about asking, wedding venues are well prepared for negotiations and will always be able to offer you something to secure your booking.
