Local Wedding Video In Drangan Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary we just love local weddings, every year we  are fortunate to provide videography for so many weddings  in Tipperary, Kilkenny and many other counties ,  thanks to all the happy couples past and future  that have said yes to us as their preferred choice of  wedding videographer.
In this week’s  blog news  we are  delighted to be featuring a very local wedding that of Catherine Maher and Tom Kennedy,  the Maher family are our  closest  neighbours, just a 3 min drive from our studio in Drangan  it was my shortest journey ever to a bridal preps  location.

Catherine is the youngest and the only girl in  a family of four, the photo that she is holding is that of her late Mum and Dad,  it was a morning of mixed emotions for this beautiful  young Bride  to be. Catherine’s older brothers have always looked out for her, they pulled out all the stops for her big day on Saturday May 6th 2017 leaving no stone unturned in making it the happiest day of  her life.
The Maher family were so friendly and welcoming,  cups of tea, snacks and cakes were a slight distraction for the videographer. When the Bride was dressed and ready she stopped off at the old family farm house for photos with her brothers, Catherine has happy memories of the old homestead and her parents.

Drangan Village/ Drangan Video

When  we set up our videography business  one  of the first tasks was choosing a company name  for  our new  business venture, we decided to call it after our local village, we are proud to be keeping our small village on the map with our company  brand name.
The church of the Immaculate Conception is situated smack bang in the middle of  Drangan, the Archway Bar is only a two minute walk from the church  so no prize given for figuring out where to find Tom and the boys, it was another nice opportunity to grab nice pre -ceremony footage for the wedding film

The wedding ceremony was celebrated by Fr. Tony Lambe, it was a nice ceremony Fr. Tony’s light hearted approach helped to keep the  slightly nervous bride and groom calm a relaxed throughout, Andrea Ruth Houlihan provided the church music and singing, her amazing voice filled every corner of the crowed church. Tom is a proud follower of Tipperary Hurling he hails from Carrick On Suir and plays  hurling with his local GAA club,  Catherine and Tom now mr. and mrs. Kennedy were greeted by an  archway of clattering hurls formed by Tom’s team mates ,  its always a moment worth capturing on video.

Edmund Rice Heritage Centre Callan Kilkenny

We stopped off the Edmund Rice Heritage Centre , Wescourt Callan, for the photo shoot with the bridal party.
Blessed Edmund Rice was the founder of the Christian Brothers and Presentation Brothers.
The thatched house at “Westcourt”, Callan, Co. Kilkenny in which Edmund was born  is almost 300 years old. The perfectly preserved house consists of six rooms a kitchen, parlour, breakfast room and three bedrooms. The grounds surrounding  the house are  lovely  for wedding video and photo shoots, we got some great video shots with Catherine and Tom, just natural relaxed footage of a couple very much  in love and enjoying their first hours as husband and wife.

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.

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.

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.

Simple Ways to Thank your Bridesmaids

As a professional wedding videographer, I see first hand just how much work goes into planning a wedding, and truly, no one does it quite as well as the Bridesmaids. Calm, cool and collected throughout, a thoughtful bridesmaid can really make a difference to how smoothly the planning process goes.

Wedding Videographer Cork, Tipperary, Kilkenny and Nationwide

If you are planning a wedding or acting as bridesmaid for your friend who is getting married shortly, please feel free to contact me (Eamon) here at Drangan Video for some unbeatable wedding video packages. We’re available to travel anywhere in the country and offer packages for every budget in Cork, Kilkenny, Tipperary and beyond.

Bridesmaids helping beautiful Tipperary Bride

At a time when we are busy planning the details of our big day, it can be easy to forget those who are working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. If you are lucky enough to have a group of ladies by your side that would do absolutely anything for you and your intended, it would be a lovely idea to thank them in a way that lets them know just how cherished they are.

Jewellery

Nothing says it quite as well as jewellery does, however, this can be quite expensive if you have more than one or two bridesmaids, so don’t be afraid to pick up something that doesn’t cost the earth, moon and stars!

Whether you opt for a classic neckpiece, some pearl earrings or a charm bracelet the time you have taken to choose something special for your bridesmaids will let them know how appreciated they are.

Pamper them

It’s going to be a busy few months for your bridesmaids in the lead up to the big day and we’re pretty sure that a spa treatment or two will help get the girls back into the full swing of things. Book your bridesmaids a spa treatment or let them choose their own with a voucher for a luxury spa in your area. You can be guaranteed they’ll deserve to have a day that’s all about them once the big day has passed.

Make it Personal

If you have the opportunity to personalise a gift with a note or an inscription this will make a wonderful keepsake for your bridesmaids. It’s important these special women in your life know just how much they mean to you and how much you appreciate all the help they’ve given you when preparing for the wedding.

Throw them a ‘Thank You’ Party

A gift needn’t be something material; by organising an event especially for them you can tell the world how lucky you are to have them in your life. Host a small party in your home or treat the girls to some afternoon tea. Celebrate the fact that you will always be thankful for the support they have given you during this very special time. You could have a viewing of your wedding video and point out to them all the things you are thankful for!

December Wedding In Thurles Cathedral

Thurles in Co. Tipperary  is known as the home of hurling and rightly so because it is where the GAA was founded.  On the November 1st 1884 Michael Cusack and seven other men had a meeting in Hayes Hotel and founded the Gaelic Athletic Association.
Since 1879 Thurles Cathedral has been the choice of wedding ceremony venue  by so  many  couples  I suppose it could be best described as the home of weddings in Tipperary.

Sinead and Diarmuid’s Wedding Video

December 30th 2016  was a rather unseasonal day for the time of year, the sun was shining  it was very calm and not a drop of rain to be seen, conditions were ideal for shooting great video footage.
The video begins with coverage of Sinead and girls preparing for the big event, Sinead was getting ready in her parents house which is situated on the Holycross Road about 10 minutes from Thurles Town.
When I arrived  the Bridal Preps were in full swing, Mum and Dad were playing their part in helping  to get the bride to the church on time, the expressions on their face  was proof   of  the pride and emotion that they were feeling  right then.
Sinead was a stunning bride she  is a tall girl with a perfect figure and apart form looking amazingly eloquent and beautiful  she was a really nice person to deal with both before and after the wedding.

Wedding In Castle Durrow

Cathedral Of The Assumption Thurles

I arrived at Thurles Cathedral about an hour before the ceremony allowing ample time to grab  footage of  the boys arriving, I was videographer for wedding of  Diarmuid’s  sister two years ago so it was nice to asked back to shoot yet another Purcell  family wedding.
The video highlights features the words of  a lovely reflection which was written by Diarmuid.  Sinead arrived almost on time for her 1pm appointment with  her husband  to be.
As Sinead’s Dad Tom  walked his beautiful daughter up the aisle his feeling of  pride must have been a wonderful ,  he was probably taking in the architecture of the historic building as they passed the huge pillars  of Cork and  Kilkenny  marble that flank both sides of the wide aisle.
The wedding ceremony was carried out by Fr. Gerard Hennessy it was a nice personal ceremony and we were out of the church within the hour.
One of the highlights of the wedding was the music by Anne Marie Dwan and vocals by the ever wonderful Marie Taylor, the music and lyrics  echoed in every corner of the historic cathedral.

Wedding Video Castle Durrow

Weddings At Castle Durrow

Castle Durrow  Country House Hotel was the wedding reception venue  it is located on the old Dublin – Cork Road  in the  village of Durrow, in Co Laois.
One of the best things about been a wedding videographer is that I get to visit so many fantastic wedding venues in Tipperary Kilkenny and Laoise, Castle Durrow is one of my personal favorites.
The large gardens and beautiful interiors provide the perfect backdrop for shooting high quality wedding videos.
Sinead and Diarmuid joined their guests for dinner at 6pm, the speeches were conducted after the meal,  while waiting for the speeches I took some time out in the bar restaurant and enjoyed a really beautiful meal.

Diarmuid and Sinead were a smashing couple to work with, they were very easygoing and relaxed, I had full permission to go ahead and do my own thing. My style of video recording is very much a fly on the wall approach, couples like this style because they are free to enjoy their big day without interruption from their  wedding videographer.

If you are currently in the process of wedding planning and are in two minds about hiring a wedding videographer, why not get in contact with  myself Eamon,  who will be more than happy to  chat to you about our range of beautiful  HD wedding video packages.
