Wedding Photography and Videography Checklist

In this blog post we are going to discuss the all-important checklist for the videography and photography on your wedding day. Whilst a professional videographer or photographer will always know exactly what moments to capture, it may helpful for you to compile a checklist beforehand to ensure you’re happy that every moment of your big day is being filmed or photographed.

Preparation Shots:

Some of the most intimate moments we capture for our brides and grooms are in the preparation stage. In the early morning or in the hours before the ceremony, the team here at Drangan video take time to capture those special moments that no one else gets to see. We would wholly recommend that you ask your photographer to be present at this time also.

• Bride, Maid of Honour and bridesmaids getting ready
• Family moments such as the family seeing the bride for the first time in all her finery.
• The wedding cars arriving.
• Filming well wishes with your neighbours and friends in the area.
• Groom, Best Man and groomsmen getting ready.
• Family shots in the home with both families.
• Pinning of the boutonnière between father/best man and son.

The Ceremony:

The ceremony is indeed the most important aspect of your big day and it’s great if your videographer and photographer can work in harmony to capture every moment.

• Guests arriving at the ceremony venue.
• Shots of the exterior and interior of the venue.
• Detailed shots of wedding booklets.
• Family members arriving and being seated by your ushers or grooms party.
• Father and bride making their way into the ceremony and down the aisle.
• Every moment of the ceremony.
• First kiss.
• Processional or exit from the ceremony venue.

The Reception:

Now that it’s time to celebrate, you can kick back and relax, dance, eat, drink and be merry while your photographer and wedding videographer capture every moment of the party.

• Interior and exterior shots of the reception venue.
• Guests signing guest book.
• The all important speeches.
• Cutting the cake.
• Your very first dance as a married couple.

It’s always a nice idea to capture the little things that make up the décor of your big day, so don’t feel shy to ask your photographer or videographer to take shots of the centrepieces, table plan, floral arrangements and wedding favours.

Wedding Videographer Tipperary

In this blog post I’m going to tell you a bit about Drangan Video, talk about why we love what we do and give you an idea of what type of service you can expect before, during and after your big day. I’ll also touch on the different approaches we take to videography and why our professional editing service makes a real difference to product we offer.

Our Approach to Wedding Videography:

As the founder of Drangan Video I pride myself greatly on providing a discreet wedding videography service with a real hands off approach. I never direct or set up shots, this allows the final video to be truly natural and portray the real atmosphere of your day. I also include cinematography and camera movement when filming your big day, so you can enjoy the very best of both worlds. For me, the most important aspect of filming your wedding day is that I provide you with a video that really allows you to enjoy the experience all over again. Candid video and documentary styled filming means you get to see all the important milestones of your big day and also see the little details that you may not have been aware of. This is what makes discreet video footage so important.

Final Planning for your Winter Wedding

It’s hard to believe that we are already writing about winter weddings, how the summer has flown by this year! For those of you who are tying the knot in the final months of 2018 or early 2019, we hope you find these last minute planning tips helpful.

Winter Weddings In Tipperary
It’s all about planning for the weather!

Being realistic about weather expectations during the winter months means you will never be caught short on your wedding day. Here at Drangan Video, we provide wedding videography services throughout the year and have seen a huge increase in couples getting married in the later months, particularly during the Christmas season.

Planning for winter weather conditions well in advance will give you the peace of mind you deserve on your wedding day:

For the guests:

• Umbrellas at the ready – organise a surplus of umbrellas for any guests who may not have had the foresight to bring one to the ceremony or celebrations.
• Keep your guests warm – making sure your guests are comfortable and warm at all times will make a huge difference to your day and will make your guests feel extra special.
• Offering a hot drink on arrival – when your guests arrive at your venue, consider offering hot drinks such as tea, coffee, mulled wine, Irish coffees or hot whiskeys.
• If you have an outdoor area at your venue of choice, provide your guests with warm blankets to keep the chill out.

Winter Wedding Film
For the bridal party:

• The bride and the bridesmaids will need to be comfortable throughout the ceremony and the celebrations, so make sure you put some though into winter-ready accessories. Faux fur shoulder capes, boleros and custom designed jackets are all good options to keep the chill out.
• Don’t forget about the groom and grooms party, keep the guys warm by providing smart overcoats and attractive scarves. Most tux rental shops will be able to offer heavier suits or coats for the winter months.
• Bring an ‘emergency’ kit for the ladies. Cold winds and the likelihood of rain will mean you need to put a bit of extra thought into this kit. Include lip balm, hand cream, moisturiser, hairspray, makeup setting spray and anything else your bridal party may need in the event of bad weather.
• Keep your legs warm – Give your legs the love they need during this long day by wearing thick tights under a long wedding dress. If your bridesmaids are also wearing long dresses, provide them with high denier tights to keep those tootsies warm.

Cover all eventualities:

When planning your winter wedding, try to plan for every possibility on the day. Provide guests with clear directions to the venue and ask them to allow extra travel time in case of extreme weather conditions. Keep the extra travel time in mind for the bridal and grooms party too as icy roads or heavy winds can easily add an extra hour to a journey.

Christmas Weddings Kilkenny

If you have a photographer and videographer booked for outdoor shots, keep in mind that this may not always be possible. Have an alternative indoor venue arranged for group shots, personal photos and videography. The great thing about a winter wedding is that you get to dress up all over again later in the year if you wish to get some shots in the sunshine.

Drangan Video provides wedding videography services 12 months of the year and is available to film weddings right across the country. Please feel free to pop over to our testimonials page where you can see a small sample of our work, should you wish to see further samples, do get in touch and we’ll be happy to give you all the information you need.

We’ll be covering more winter wedding tips over the coming months so keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page for updates.
