The Perfect Flowers for your Winter Wedding

Here at Drangan Video, we have been blessed to film hundreds of winter weddings over our 25 years in business. During this time, we have learned a lot about special touches, unique décor and inspired themes from our brides and grooms and we love nothing more than sharing them with our readers.

In this blog post we are going to look at some of the most wonderful winter wedding flowers, that are sure to add a touch of magic to your décor, bouquets and boutonnieres.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the winter months in Ireland don’t offer a lot of options in the floral department, after all our climate doesn’t encourage all year round flowering! However, there are some real floral gems to be found in our gardens, hedgerows, countryside and of course with our wonderful Irish florists. Take a look at the list below and envisage the perfect winter bouquet with these special blooms and foliage.

Eucalyptus

Whilst not native to Ireland, the eucalyptus can now be found on virtually every corner you turn. The silvery/blue tint and minty aroma is perfect to fill out any winter wedding bouquet. Add eucalyptus to your table centrepieces too for an extra touch of something special.

Berries

Take a ramble in your local countryside to avail of some of the most wonderful winter colours available in Ireland. Whether you opt for holly or hypericum berries, you can be assured that these will look wonderful in any floral arrangements, bouquets or centrepieces.

Pine Cones

Bouquets and centrepieces don’t have to be made up entirely of flowers and foliage. As with berries, pinecones, nuts and other winter fruits can add something really special to your décor and floral arrangements.

Spices

This may seem like an odd one, but stick with us! Cinnamon and star anise just smell like winter right? Think about adding one or two of each to your winter bouquet by attaching to a length of wire, the sweet, comforting smell will add a touch of warmth to your big day.

Roses

It goes without saying, that roses are one of the most popular choices for bridal bouquets, however they can be expensive at this time of the year, especially if you’re looking for red. Talk with your florist about the options available to you and perhaps opt for more subtle colours such as romantic pinks, creams and whites to enhance your arrangement.

Pine

The smell of fresh pine is one of the most wonderful winter scents we have come across, and it’s absolutely abundant in our countryside, towns and villages. No need to pay a fortune when we have such incredible foliage available outside our doors.

Over the past 25 years we have seen some truly innovative wedding favours, décor and entertainment, much of it crafted by friends, family and bridal party members.

In this blog post we are going to look at some DIY wedding favour ideas that you may like to try for yourself. Whether you want to incorporate DIY for budgetary reasons or just want to add something personal to your big day, we’re sure these ideas will spark some inspiration.

Jams and Chutneys
Are you a bit of a whizz in the kitchen, like to spend your time cooking delicacies and sharing them with those you love? Then why not consider providing your guests with a homemade jam, chutney or pickle to take home as a gift? Adding personalised labels to your jars with the date of your wedding will ensure your guests leave feeling special. A taste of your home in the homes of those you love, what could be nicer?

Sweet Treats
Fill organza or customised paper bags with sweet treats of your choice. Ask your friends or bridal party around for a night of sweet tasting and bag filling and provide your guests with something special for your big day. Using ribbons to secure organza bags can allow you the opportunity to extend your colour scheme to every seat in the venue.

Mini Potted Plants
Perhaps you and your loved one are keen gardeners or love the outdoors? Maybe you have a special connection to a specific plant or flower? Bulk buy some mini pots on eBay or through a local wholesaler and plant your favourite flower, tree or fern to give to your guests as a wedding favour. Include a care card to let your guests know how to get the most from their mini potted plant and even add a personal note to each favour.

Cookies
Nothing says thank you quite like a bag of homemade baked goods – think of that welcoming aroma and how it will make your guest feel! A little paper bag full of mini cookies or a singular large cookie for each guest will be appreciated later in the evening or can be brought home for a treat to enjoy with a coffee the next day.

Mini Drinks
Are you a fan of brewing your own beer or making your own wine? Why not share your passion with your guests by providing samples of your home brew? Personalised labels and notes to accompany each drink will ensure your guests know just how much you appreciate them.

Hiring a Drone for your Wedding Video

Here at Drangan Video, we have been providing wedding videography services for over 25 years and have recently added drone videography  to our packages. The trend for aerial images is set to keep on growing and we have embraced all this technology has to offer over the past 2 years. Take a look at some of the sample videos right here on our website to see how drone footage can add an element of drama, beauty and incredible scenery to your wedding video.

Drone Wedding Video

Wedding drone  videography is rising in popularity for couples right across Ireland (and with good reason), however, it is incredibly important that you deal with an experienced operator. While the end result is of course the most important aspect of drone footage, safety is absolutely paramount at all times. The drones we use here at Drangan Video are essentially mini helicopters with an on-board camera that captures images and video footage from an elevated height. We have undertaken in-depth training in order to provide this service and are fully licensed to operate drones within the Republic of Ireland. Don’t risk accidents on the happiest day of your life by hiring someone who lacks the experience or credentials to operate and film with a hi-tech drone.

Planning is essential for drone photography and videography

In the lead up to your big day, we will put in place a full safety plan to ensure our drones never have a negative impact on your big day. We want you to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that the team from Drangan Video are absolute experts at what they do! We will collaborate with any onsite vendors, including your photographer, will scope out the surrounding area and make ourselves familiar with any flight restrictions that may be in place near the venue. Our promise to you is to provide incredible aerial footage of your wedding without ever having to worry about safety or intrusion on your big day.

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and we aim to capture every moment in all its beautiful glory. Our state of the art drones will deliver panoramic footage that is both unique and memorable. Combined with our traditional wedding videography, the drone footage will add something truly special to your wedding video.

Wedding Ceremony

Are you planning a wedding in the great outdoors or tying the knot in a particularly scenic part of Ireland? If so, we would love to talk to you about the possibilities that drone footage can bring to your wedding video.

Getting creative with the many possibilities aerial footage offers, means wedding videos will never be the same again. Imagine aerial footage of your guests arriving at the venue, perhaps it’s been snowing and the nearby mountains are capped with white! Maybe you and your bridal party fancy taking a lie down in a meadow on a sunny day and want it captured from above? The possibilities are endless! With our experience and ideas and your imagination, we can provide you with the most memorable wedding video possible.

To learn more about adding drone footage to your wedding video, please feel free to get in touch with Eamon here at Drangan Video. Based in Tipperary and Kilkennny we are available to travel nationwide, you can be assured that Drangan Video will provide you with the very best wedding videography service available in Ireland.

Being Social with your Wedding Video

Over the past decade we have seen a huge surge in couples sharing snippets of their wedding video online. This trend looks set to continue long into the future and we are happy to provide our brides and grooms with shorter edits that they can share online with friends and family.

Social media has had a huge impact on the way many of us live our lives and in many respects this has been incredibly positive. Let’s take a look at just some of the ways social media has influenced the way we plan and share our wedding celebrations.

Announcing the Engagement

Prior to the age of social media, when couples became engaged they would have to contact friends and family individually to share their big news. Sometimes travelling long distances or spending a fortune on long-distance calls to make sure no one had been left out! Today we can simply pop a post up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of the other popular social networks that our friends and family use. To accompany the announcement of the engagement, we can share photo’s of the ring, the happy couple, even of the proposal itself! Embracing social media in this way means that you have a bit more time to enjoy the celebrations!

Save the Date
Social media, wedding websites and chat apps now mean we can contact anyone almost instantly. In many instances we have spoke to brides and grooms who have set up an ‘Event’ on Facebook to ensure friends and family are aware of the wedding date, long before invites are due to be sent. This online notification of your wedding date can save a fortune on wedding stationery costs and is a great way to give the heads up to family and friends living abroad!

Gift Register

If you and your intended have just bought a new house or have some specific gifts in mind for your wedding, you’ll find that there are a number of apps and social media sites that can greatly assist with this. Having an online gift register allows your guests to see your ideal gifts and will eliminate ‘double gifting’. Whilst gift registries are not typically common in Ireland, with couples preferring not to request gifts, there does seem to be a new trend emerging that could see this become popular in the coming years.

• Events for the hen party or stag do
• Virtual wedding invitations
• Tracking down the very best wedding vendors
• Reading reviews of wedding vendors

Sharing is Caring

Whilst not for everyone, sharing the special moments of your big day can really make a difference to those who can’t be there on the day. Whether you’re sharing with all your ‘friends’ or just a select few, a snippet of your wedding day video provided by Drangan Video will provide precious memories for guests and a special insight for those who may be living abroad. Inclusion of our drone footage can make for some pretty spectacular video!
