The Sacred Heart Church Templetuohy was the setting for for the wedding ceremony, for video coverage it was a simple two camera set up I like to adapt a discreet profile especially during the ceremony.
Fr. Pat Murphy was the wedding celebrant he a really nice easygoing  guy, music and vocals were performed by fabulous Claire Heffernan  one the best wedding singers in Tipperary.

We stopped off at  Templemore Town park for a photo shoot it was a great opportunity to capture interesting winter video  footage.
The park is a hidden treasure for the  town of Templemore  it  has  a beautiful lake an impressive fountain a  lovely spot for a pleasant walk.  It was also nice time out  for  Paul & Deirdre a chance to reflect on becoming Mr. & Mrs.

The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny provided the  perfect backdrop for Paul & Deirdre’s   big  day. I am informed that the first wedding reception in the Newpark Hotel took place  in 1966 they have been the most popular wedding venue choice in Kilkenny for more than 50 years.

Paul secretly organized a fireworks display as a surprise for Deirdre, it was spectacular display a thrilling end to their Highlights Video Clip.

Beautiful Vintage Theme Wedding Video In Kilkenny

Emma Peters & Niall O’ Leary were married in Dungarvan Co. Kilkenny. This is the highlights clip from their wedding DVD.

The wedding Video coverage begins with Emma and her bridesmaids preparing for the day, Emma’s house is only within walking distance from the Church in Dungarvan. The main highlight of the day was the arrival of the bride at the church on the back of and old perfectly restored vintage tractor, which was a real treat for me in my capacity  as the official wedding videographer.

Dungarvan is a lovely tidy village in Gowran Kilkenny situated quite near to Gowran Park which is a horse race course in County Kilkenny, Ireland. It is located in the Annely Estate near the village of Gowran.The first meeting was held in 1914, and the first ever racecourse commentary in Ireland took place here in 1952. I have recorded many wedding videos around this part of Kilkenny already this year and I always look forward to returning there.

After the wedding ceremony the happy bride & Groom departed from the church grounds on the vintage tractor which was drivin by the proud groom Niall. We got some stunning video and photos of the bridal party as they strolled around the village street, we popped into the local where Emma tried her hand at pulling a pint for her thirsty groom it was all great fun.

Emma & Niall enjoyed a wonderful wedding Reception at the 4 star Newpark Hotel which is now the top wedding venue in Leinster Ireland and the greater Killkenny area.  Brides in Kilkenny are spoiled for choice by the amount of top class wedding venues that are available in the Marble City. I am sure that all Wedding Suppliers and Videographers in Kilkenny will agree that the New Park is a dream wedding reception venue.

Emma and Niall have returned to Austrlia and have received their wedding DVDs by post, this video clip from the wedding dvd has been shared on Facebook by Drangan Video. It was a smashing wedding and I enjoyed working with this lovely friendly couple who really enjoyed their wedding day, the vintage tractors were a great idea and of coarse the brilliant sunshine played its part in making the day a huge success.

More wedding news from Kilkenny soon.

Summer Wedding Video Kilkenny

This is a highlights clip from the wedding of Angela Byrne & Thomas Comerford who were married in the Holy Trinity Church, Dunmore, Co. Kilkenny,  the clip begins with bridal

It was great to be back in Kilkenny once again on a beautiful warm sunny day for the wedding of Angela & Thomas, they were a lovely couple to work with they were so relaxed and easygoing,  everything just fell into place perfectly.  Dunmore is located on the Castlecomer Road just outside Kilkenny City the Holy Trinity Church is located just off the road and  sits in the shade of lots of trees and greenery, it is a lovely setting for a wedding the church itself is untouched by modern developments and when you enter the church it is a step back in time.  I enjoyed shooting this wedding it was a very easygoing wedding  all the guest were happy to relax in the beautiful sunshine  and have a chat outside the church when waiting for the bride to arrive.  

Dunmore is  well known for its famous attraction the Dunmore Cave.     History and geology blend at Dunmore Cave to give an interesting and unique situation. Consisting of a series of chambers formed over millions of years, the cave contains some of the finest calcite formations found in any Irish cave. The cave has been known to man for many centuries and is first mentioned in the 9th century Irish Triads. The most interesting reference however, comes from the Annals which tells of a Viking massacre at the cave in the year 928 A.D.  Archaeological finds within the cave confirm Viking activity, the cave is well worth  a visit for anyone who has an interest in Irish history.

The clip also features some cracking footage which I shot at Jenkinstown Park, we stopped off at the park after the wedding Ceremony for the photo and video shoot with the bridal party.   Jenkinstown Park is Just a 10min drive from Kilkenny City in the South East of Ireland, Jenkinstown Park was once part of a large estate. Today, the old house is long gone but remnants of 1870s parkland have survived, including rare Chinese Necklace Poplars. The facilities also include a picnic site, forest walks, deer park and a craft centre. A small garden to commemorate the Irish poet Thomas Moore.  I like shooting wedding footage in Jenkinstown park in spring time because the beautiful  flora includes  bluebells which form a purple carpet among a wood of beech during mid to late April its just a magical setting.

Thomas and Angela enjoyed a great wedding reception in the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny, it one of my favorite Wedding Venues In Kilkenny,    The hotel is Set in forty acres of parkland and with award-winning landscaped gardens, the Newpark Hotel provides a perfect backdrop for a beautiful wedding day.  The first wedding reception was held at the Newpark Hotel in 1966.  The Dunmore Suite holds 160 guests and the Glendine Suite holds 130 guests seated. For weddings over 180 guests both suites are used. Attached to each banquetting suite is a bar area where the guests can relax in comfort and privacy.   I love shooting wedding videos in the Newpark its simply the best.

A big thanks to Angela & Thomas for choosing Drangan Video to record their special day, they were so nice to work with  I just turned up on the day, did my own thing quitly and discreetly, Angela were very happy with the end result and we have shared the above highlight clip on facebook, visit Drangan Video On Facebook for all the very latest wedding news in Kilkenny & Tipperary.
