Are you ready for your Christmas Wedding?

It’s that time of the year again when we are looking forward to working with our Christmas brides and grooms. Over the last decade we have seen a huge upsurge in couples tying the knot over the festive period and it’s become something of a tradition for us to dedicate a blog post to these seasonal ceremonies.

Christmas Weddings In Tipperary

Whether you’re opting for a church wedding, a civil ceremony or an alternative occasion to celebrate your love, there’s one thing that’s certain and that is you can never be fully prepared for all that December has to offer. As I write this blog post the sun is shining as strongly as it would in August, however there’s a chill in the air that tells us we need to wrap up extra warm before we go to film this weeks wedding videos. December is a month for all seasons, you may get sunshine, you may even get snow but you need to be prepared for all eventualities.

For those of you who are tying the knot this December and New Year, here’s a handy little checklist that will help you prepare for any last minute weather changes.

• Stock up on umbrellas – You can never have too many spare umbrellas available on your big day. Ask the best man and any willing family members to collect as many umbrellas as they can from family and friends and have them ready in the boot of a car for those who have come to the ceremony unprepared.
• Allow for extra travel time – While you may be only a ten-minute drive from the ceremony location, it’s important that you allow yourself double the travel time at least to ensure there are no lengthy delays. December weather in Ireland can bring icy roads, high winds and spot flooding so you’ll want to ensure you and your guests get to the venue without any problems.
• Keep warm – Speak to your venue about extra heating for any outdoor areas and perhaps provide some wraps, blankets and warm throws for your guests who may venture outside for a cigarette or a breath of fresh air.
• Welcome drinks – December is the perfect time of year for mulled wine, hot cider, Irish coffees and hot whiskey. Why not treat your guests to a warming drink upon arrival at your reception venue to get them in the holiday spirit.
• Provide transport – Travelling in adverse weather conditions can be a daunting task for many drivers and it may be a deciding factor on whether they can make it to your wedding ceremony. Consider hiring a mini-bus to collect and drop guests along a pre-agreed route to your venue and on to the reception if they’re in different locations. This will allow your guests to relax and enjoy the celebrations without having to worry about how they’ll get home later.

Planning for the Weather on your Wedding Day

Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary and Kilkenny, we have been providing wedding videography services to Ireland’s most loved-up couples for almost 25 years. We have seen every type of weather conceivable, quite often all on the same day, and we know that a little preparation can go a very long way!

Due to our somewhat unpredictable climate, planning for the weather is an absolute ‘must’ when it comes to preparing for your Irish wedding. Getting married in June or July does not guarantee sunshine as we all know, and you could end up with blue skies and high temperatures in November when the winds blow in the right direction. In this blog post, we are going to look at some tips that you can keep in mind when planning your big day. Remember though, that no matter what the weather, your day is going to be a day to remember, rain, sunshine, snow or ice won’t make a jot of difference when you say ‘I do’ to the one you love!

Umbrellas for guests:
Pre-pack umbrellas into family and friends cars in the days leading up to your big day. Choose playful colours, pastels or quirky designs to add a splash of colour to your day. Whether the umbrellas are used to ward off the rain or to protect your guests from the sunshine, you can be assured they’ll be appreciated by all who use them. Perhaps consider getting the umbrellas personalised with a monogram, these make great wedding favours and mementos for your guests and you can be guaranteed they’ll be used again!
Blankets and throws:
A lovely touch for the evening of your wedding when guests tend to wander outdoors, consider providing some throws and blankets to ward off the cool night air. If you’re having an outdoor or marquee wedding, these little touches will make all the difference for guests of all ages.

Sunscreen:
If it looks like it’s going to be a sunny day, consider leaving some sunscreen in the ladies and gents restrooms as part of a toiletries hamper. If you have children attending your wedding celebrations, you can be assured that their parents will welcome this little touch to keep the kiddies sunburn free for the day.

Have a plan B:
If you are planning an outdoor wedding, it’s imperative that you have a plan B for your big day. Speak with your wedding venue and vendors in advance to put a plan in place for a rainy day event. Ask your venue to have an indoor area available and ready for your guests in the event of rain. With one or two days to go until the wedding you should have a clearer idea of the forecast and can start putting plans in motion.

Warm/cool your guests with a welcome drink:
Whether you’re looking at soaring temperatures or romantic snow, a welcoming drink for your guests upon arrival can make all the difference. A winter wedding paired with mulled wine is a real treat for the senses and can help your guests warm up, relax and get ready for the celebrations. During the summer months you can opt to serve cooling cocktails and juices. It’s the little touches that make a big difference!

Drangan Video Tipperary and Kilkenny

In this article, we’re going to tell you a bit about what makes Drangan Video so special and why we believe brides and grooms choose us to capture every moment of their big day.

Since our inception in 1995, we have seen huge changes in the world of wedding videography, particularly in the technology we use and the trend towards a more subtle approach to filming your wedding. Drangan Video have adapted to and in many cases, led these changes in approach and style.

One of the best compliments we can get from any bride or groom is ‘We didn’t even know you were there’! This tells us that we have done our job correctly. Our hands-off approach means we never interfere with the running of your day and film from the sidelines without ever infringing on the celebrations. We also work extremely well with photographers, recognizing that they are limited by time and circumstance and don’t want a videographer disrupting their work in any way. We let the photographer take centre stage, never infringing on their space.

Our approach to wedding videography can be described as ‘documentary style’ and we strive to capture every moment of your day in a way that is natural, discrete and free from interruption. This approach allows us to take footage that may otherwise be overlooked – a loving glance between father and bride or special moments between those who know you best. This results in a true documentation of your wedding, allowing you to see the little things that would normally go unnoticed.

Another reason brides and grooms choose us for their wedding videography is our central location. Based in Co. Tipperary, our central location allows us to offer wedding videography in every county in Ireland. We don’t charge extra for distance travelled and always get to know the venue and area before the big day.
One of the newest additions to our wedding video offering is drone videography and photography. Our state of the art drone allows us to capture unique footage of your big day from a perspective that is absolutely breathtaking. Picture our aerial footage of your home or venue along with the guests arriving to the wedding ceremony. We are truly blessed in Ireland to enjoy such wonderful landscapes and scenery and there’s no reason why this incredible backdrop shouldn’t be featured on your beautifully crafted wedding video.
