What to do after you get Engaged

At this time of the year we take great pleasure in speaking with newly engaged couples who received proposals over the festive period. It’s such an exciting time for our Brides and Grooms to be! In this article we are going to talk about the very first things you need to do as a newly engaged couple to assist with the wedding planning process.

Wedding Planning Tips

1. Share and celebrate
First and foremost you should be sharing your good news with your very closest friends and family. Take some time out to celebrate before you get stuck into the planning process and enjoy this happy time.

2. Save and save some more
If you haven’t already started saving for your big day, now is the time to do so. We would highly recommend opening a credit union account in your locality and commit to putting away a little bit every week. If you decide to go with a traditional bank account, look for a bank that offers little or no fees on your savings.

3. Sizing of your ring
There’s a good chance that unless you’ve gone shopping together for a ring, you may need to make adjustments to the size. Visit a reputable jeweller, preferably the same outlet in which the ring was purchased and ask them for advice and assistance with the sizing of your ring. While you’re here, you should also have your ring appraised and request a certificate of value to include in your home insurance.

4. Decide on your bridal party
There’s no time like the present when it comes to deciding on who will be part of your big day. Take the time to discuss choices with your partner and agree on the individuals you would like to include in your bridal and grooms party. You may opt for a Maid of Honour and one bridesmaid or a large group of great friends and family, the choice is entirely yours!

5. Get a handle on numbers
Before you start looking at venues, it’s a good idea to have an idea of the numbers that will be attending the wedding, reception and evening party. There’s no need to make a detailed guest list at this early stage but a rough idea of the attendance numbers will greatly help when searching for a venue.

6. It’s time to start looking at venues
This is one of the stages that our couples enjoy most! Take the time to read online reviews and reach out to other couples that have celebrated in the venues you are considering. Arrange meetings with the wedding coordinators at your top 4 or 5 preferred venues and don’t be afraid to negotiate! Remember, weekday weddings greatly reduce all the costs associated with your big day.

7. Choose your vendors
Now that you have your venue booked (for the ceremony and the reception), it’s time to start approaching vendors for quotes. Florists, car rental, entertainment, photographers and videographers should all have a number of packages they can offer to suit every budget.

8. Don’t forget the dress!
Shopping for your dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, suits and tuxedos can be incorporated into a fun day out for both parties. Take your time and enjoy the time spent choosing the outfit of your choice.

Wedding Anniversary Gifts for the Future

Last weekend I  had the pleasure of filming two delightful weddings in Kilkenny,  bumping into so many married couples that had hired Drangan Video  to record their special day  has provided food for thought regarding the content for this wedding news blog. One couple were celebrating their 10th wedding Anniversary other couples were looking forward to celebrating 5 years of married bliss,  in this article we are taking a closer look at wedding anniversary gifts.

Happy Kilkenny Couple celebrating their  first wedding anniversary

Now that you have tied the knot and are looking forward to a wonderful future together, it’s important that you take time to remember your big day year after year. In this article we are going to talk about the traditional gifts that are associated with each anniversary up to the 30-year mark. We’ll explore the gifts associated with later anniversaries in a later article.

1st Anniversary – Paper
Celebrate your first anniversary with a gift made of paper. Whether you choose a favourite first edition book, a diary, a photo album or tickets to a special event, paper should be the centerpiece of your gift.

Happily married Kilkenny couple

2nd Anniversary – Cotton
The gift most associated with a second wedding anniversary is cotton. Choose from candles that smell of cotton or bathrobes to snuggle up in.

3rd Anniversary – Leather
Leather is traditionally associated with gifts for your third wedding anniversary, the beauty of a leather gift is that it will last for years if good quality. Opt for a smart wallet/purse, a handbag or satchel or a leather bound book or diary.

4th Anniversary – Fruit and Flowers
This one is pretty self explanatory, treat your loved one to a hamper of fruit and flowers, perhaps organise a picnic or prepare something fruity for dessert that evening.

5th Anniversary – Wood
Your wooden anniversary can be celebrated by gifting a jewellery box, a handcrafted sign or trinket box or a framed picture of your big day or another special occasion you have celebrated over the past 5 years.

6th Anniversary – Sugar
Something sweet for someone sweet, gifts don’t get easier that this! Treat your loved one to candy canes and chocolate on this special day.

7th Anniversary – Copper & Wool
Copper jewellery, comfy woolen scarves or a combination of both can make this anniversary a day to remember. Ireland has a wealth of handcrafted items on offer in both copper and wool so you can be sure you’ll find something wonderful to gift to your loved one.

8th Anniversary – Bronze
Bronze represents strength and unity due to being a product of copper and tin. This special anniversary allows you to explore the many bronze Irish crafts available in most cities, towns and villages across Ireland.

9th Anniversary – Pottery or Willow
Pottery and Willow are said to be representative of a 9th wedding anniversary because they can both be used to create strong, lasting products. Both are flexible but with creativity and determination can transform into strong treasured items.

10th Anniversary – Tin
Tin can be used to store perishables and delicacies, keeping them safe and preserved for future nourishment. Tin represents strength and protection so it’s absolutely perfect for celebrating your tenth wedding anniversary.

15th Anniversary – Crystal
If you’re determined to stick to traditional anniversary gifts, this is where the price may become a bit higher than you have been used to over the past 14 years. Luckily the price of crystal has come down in recent years and good quality crystal can be purchased for a reasonable price.

20th Anniversary – China
China has always been the gift of choice for those celebrating their 20th anniversary, however more modern gifts have been associated with platinum, we’ll let you choose!!

25th Anniversary – Silver
Silver never goes out of fashion, it’s pretty much timeless and can be used for everything from jewellery to electronics. We can’t think of a better gift for your 25th anniversary.

30th Anniversary – Pearls
Pearls are said to be a symbol of beauty hidden within, however they also represent strength and unity and are the perfect representation of your 30-year marriage.

Drop back shortly to read our follow up article on the gifts associated with wedding anniversaries from 30 to 50 years.

Today I am proud to sharing  the following video highlights from the wedding of Martina and Darren  who  tied the knot in St. Canice’s Church, they enjoyed a fab wedding reception in Hotel Kilkenny.

Martina and Darren contacted back in 2015 with a view to having their special day filmed, their wedding was still two years away but they had made a list of wedding suppliers that they wanted to work with, so they were taking no chances on availability.
Here at Drangan Video in Kilkenny we are noticing a changing trend regarding our wedding bookings, couples  are getting engaged then straight away are in to full steam ahead wedding planning, just yesterday we took three bookings for wedding videos in 2020 it seems so far away, I feel very honored that those couples are so impressed by my work  by having Drangan Video on their favorite list of wedding suppliers.

Wedding Photo Kilkenny Castle

The video coverage of Martina and Darren’s big day began with the ever popular bridal preps which took place in Hotel Kilkenny just a few minutes form the church.  John Delaney was on duty as the official wedding photographer for the day, John and myself  work very well together some of my best wedding films were shot with John, he has a lovey way abut him keeping everyone so  relaxed and smiling.

The wedding ceremony took place in St. Canice’s  Church Fr. Kieran O’ Shea conducted a lovely ceremony his relaxed manner helped  our Bride and Groom  to actually enjoy the ceremony without taking what is often described as a  daunting  task too  seriously.

After the ceremony  our next location was the Castle Park Kilkenny, it is the ideal location for a wedding video shoot, the grounds are so well maintained always in  imaculate condition the lawns are like carpets surrounded  by  multi Coloured flowers and shrubs providing a beautiful back drop for a creative video shoot.

Hotel Kilkenny

Martina and Darren made a good decision in choosing Hotel Kilkenny for what was perfect summer wedding reception in the Orchard Suite, with its  walled garden and separate  entrance  I can only describe it as the ideal wedding reception location in Kilkenny.

Happy Wedding Video Memories Slieverue Kilkenny

Its now mid January 2017 the weather is seasonally cold and the sun is hiding behind the winter clouds, spring is around the corner.
In this wedding blog article  I’m  sharing  a highlight clip from the wedding of Grace and Richard who were married in the Church of the Assumption Slieverue on June 18th 2016.

The story begins with bridal preps with Grace and the girls, which took place in Grace’s parents house, as I arrived at the house I was amazed by the beautifully landscaped gardens that surrounded the house, Grace’s Dad  has spent years developing and caring for the lawns and gardens,  after the ceremony we came back to the house for family photos and video footage, Dad was feeling very proud.

Grace and Richard had me booked  to shoot their wedding video two years in advance, like so many other couples they had researched   wedding videographers  in both Kilkenny and Tipperary, they were very impressed with what drangan video was offering and they really liked the sample videos on our website and facebook page.

Brandon House Hotel New Ross Wexford

Grace and Richard enjoyed a fab wedding reception in The Four Star Brandon House Hotel,  it is a Country Manor House  situated just off the N25 in the historical town of New Ross.  I love shooting wedding videos in Brandon House every time that I drive up the  driveway to this  beautiful and romantic country house hotel  I say to myself this is going to be another perfect day.

Top Quality Beautiful Wedding Videos In Tipperary

About Drangan Video
In this blog post I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a bit about our services, the areas we cover, the methods we use and of course cover some of the reasons why you should choose Drangan Video as your wedding videography provider.
Based in Drangan, Co. Tipperary, I (Eamon) founded Drangan Video in 1995 as a professional wedding videography business. It has always been a belief of mine, that if you are going to offer a service, you should do so with the utmost commitment and drive.  My love of videography has never waned over this time and to be honest I still look forward to each and every wedding I have the pleasure of filming. Over these past 11 years, Drangan Video has gone from strength to strength, technology has changed massively and some trends have come full circle. I pride myself greatly on keeping up to date with all the latest equipment, videography trends and modern techniques as well as constantly delivering high quality wedding videos for each and every customer.

Because Drangan Video is a full time business for me and not a part-time job or hobby, I find that I am able to dedicate all of the precious time that is needed to provide a truly great service and end product.

There are a number of key points that separate Drangan Video from the vast competition that is available in today’s market:

1: Professional Editing – Here at Drangan Video I not only shoot all wedding videos myself, I also edit every minute of video before delivery to my clients. Many wedding videographers will outsource this important task to an editing company, as they do not have the skills within their own business to do so competently. By providing this editing service, I am able to oversee all aspects of your most important wedding video and can guarantee quality each and every time.

 

  1. Attention to Detail – I am a full-time wedding videographer and editor, which means I can dedicate all of my time to achieving perfection just for you.

 

  1. Transparency – You the customer, can view my portfolio of work at any time, allowing you to see deliverables for yourself before you make that all important decision. Wedding videos are available to view right here on the website any time or alternatively pop over to Facebook and catch a glimpse of sample videos, reviews and testimonials left by very happy customers.

 

Discretion – The approach I take to videography means, I will never intrude upon your big day. I do not set up any posed shoots, nor do I instruct the bride and groom or any of the wedding party during the day. When you choose Drangan Video to film your wedding you can be assured of a service that in no way interrupts the flow of your very special day.

Drangan Video is available for weddings nationwide so whether you’re in Tipperary, Cork or Dublin I would absolutely love to hear from you.
