Drangan Video On Facebook “LIKE”

It only seems like yesterday when like millions of people around the world I decided to join Facebook  for a bit of fun and to keep up with all the local news in and around

Latest Wedding News
Latest Wedding News

Drangan and Fethard, that was five years ago starting off with just a few friends and sharing family photos and news.  In 2012 I set a new  business page, initially I had no idea of the success that lay ahead for Drangan Video on facebook two years later and with almost 2500 likes, my page now plays a very important roll in the the day to day running of my wedding video business here in South Tipperary.  The success of a business page is very much down to what you are are prepared to put into it, of coarse it’s  very easy to set up a  business page about 10 mins in total will get it up and running.  The whole idea behind a successful page is regular posting about special offers and news about the company, in my case as a wedding videographer in Tipperary and Munster potential brides 2 be are naturally interested in keeping up with all the latest wedding news and looking at recent wedding video highlight clips.  Online rankings are very important for all wedding suppliers and that includes wedding videographers, I just did a check today on how Drangan Video is doing in Google rankings, pleasantly surprised to see that we are number one in Tipperary from an organic search for Wedding Video In Tipperary and also number one in Kilkenny and Waterford, I would be more than happy to be listed  on the first Google search page so I suppose its a bit of a bonus to be right up at there at the  top.  Word of mouth referrals are still the number one means by which inquirers come in to me, normally when Drangan Video is recommended to a couple their first port  of call will be a Google search and a link to Facebook followed by an email, FB pm or a phone call, mind you phone calls are very much in the minority for the initial contact.

if you have a moment please check out Drangan Video On Facebook for all the  latest wedding news in Tipperary and surrounding counties, the page also contains many recent clips from weddings in Cork, Carlow, Limerick and Kilkenny.

Here is a very interesting Facebook page Bridal Musings, always up to date with all the latest wedding planning advice.

This a snippet from Bridal Musings website.

Where To Source Suppliers From

So, where to start? I would begin by asking friends and family (especially if they’ve been married recently) if they can recommend any suppliers as a personal recommendation is always preferable. They can also let you know if there are any companies you should steer clear of! Personal endorsements are likely to yield more local suppliers as well, which will save the cost of sourcing a national company who have to travel to you.

Magazines, blogs, wedding directories are all great sources too of course. Don’t just look at whoever is shouting the loudest and has the biggest ad – actually take the time to look at the kind of weddings they have worked on and what couples had to say about them.

You might not have thought of it, but social media is also an excellent tool for tracking down wedding suppliers. The wedding industry has a huge presence on Twitter and most wedding suppliers now have their own Facebook pages too, so you can find out more about them and interact with them virtually.

I always check out the ‘About Me’ page of a supplier’s website and have a look at their blogs to see what they’ve been working on most recently and to get a feel for their personality as well. It’s all very well if their work is amazing but you’re going to share a really important day with them, so ultimately I believe you want to get along with them.

Finding The Right Suppliers For You

Suppliers fall into two camps: those that you will mainly be interacting with in the lead-up to the day, for example your stationer, who you may be happy to interact with just via phone and email; and those that you will be spending most of the time with on the actual day, such as your photographer.
Once you’ve found a selection of suppliers that fit your needs and budget, you should arrange meetings with at least 2 or 3 of each type of vendor – anymore than that is likely to become overwhelming. Use meeting them as an opportunity to get to know them and how they work, not only on the day but leading up to it and afterwards, too.

Follow your instincts when meeting with suppliers: can you imagine spending time with them or do you think your personalities might clash, especially under constraints of time and pressure? Of course you want to look back at fabulous flowers and stunning photographs, but if your overriding memory is of a supplier that made you feel uncomfortable or stressed then I would say steer clear.

Wedding Video Tipperary Town

Susan Whelan & Leo Leonard celebrated their Wedding Ceremony in St. Michael’s Church, Tipperary Town. The celebrant was Archdeacon Matthew McGrath who is well know for his relaxed and down to earth participation at Wedding Ceremonies.

The recording began with Susan and the girls preparing for the big event, Hair, Make-up, Nails,  uncorking of Champagne and the general excitement are all covered well in the above Wedding Video Highlight Clip.

I  like working in St Michaels Church Tipperary  Town, it is a very spacious church and it provides many  vantage points for Discreet Wedding Video Recording.  Susan is one of many Tipperary Brides who decided to go with the Drangan Video Diamond Package which in this case included  a Wedding Video Slide-Show.  Lyrath Estate Hotel is one of the top

Wedding Venues in Kilkenny it is one of my favourite Wedding Reception Venues.  The function room in Lyrath is ideal for showing on the day Wedding Video Highlights, Susan & Leo were very impressed with their Wedding Video Slide-show presentation.

Wishing Susan & Leo all the best for the future, they were a lovely couple to work with.

Wedding Video in Fethard

This is a local Wedding Video which i recorded recently, Julieann Smyth and Paul Gahan were married in the Church of the Holy Trinity Fethard, Co. Tipperary. The day began with Julieann getting ready at her Parent’s house which is situated between Cloneen and Fethard.

The village of Fethard is remarkable for having been heavily fortified and completely surrounded by village walls as part of Edward I’s policy of establishing fortified market village’s. The village walls rise to a height of 25 feet (7.6 m) and can still be seen today. Most of the circuit survives, making Fethard the most complete medieval circuit in Ireland. Knockelly Castle, a well fortified tower house is one of many historical buildings in the area. The village is also internationally known in the Thoroughbred horse racing industry as the home of Coolmore Stud. There are also a number of horse-training stables in Fethard, notably that of Michael “Mouse” Morris, at Everardsgrange. McCarthy’s Hotel is noted as a place to meet celebrities and this is where I cough up with Paul and the boys about an hour before the wedding, McCarthy’s Pub is right across from the Church and is an ideal spot for a pint or two before the big moment.

After the ceremony we stopped off at St. Patrick’s Well, Clonmel for some Wedding Photos and Wedding Video Footage. St. Patrick’s Well is a popular choice by Brides in Tipperary and Cashel Brides for their photo shoot.

Julieann & Paul had their Wedding Reception in one of  Tipperary’s Newest Hotels. Ideally located off the main Dublin to Cork road M8, 5 minutes from Clonmel town and a short stroll from the convenient retail park and shops. Wedding Videographers in Tipperary are well aquinted with The Park Hotel Clonmel it is one of the most popular Wedding Venues in Tipperary, and has its own dedicated Tipperary Wedding Planner.

As a Wedding Videographer in Munster I cover quite a number of counties each year but I must say that local  Tipperary weddings are always that little bit extra special for me, I have known Julieann & Paul for a good number of years. It was a great honour to have been asked to record their Wedding Day in Fethard which is also my local Town. Wishing Julieann & Paul all the very best for the future.
