Advice On Booking your Wedding Venue

For those of you who are in the early wedding planning process, we hope you find this blog post interesting and informative. Booking the right venue for you and your intended is probably the most important choice you will make at this early stage. It is with this in mind that we have compiled a list of important questions for you to ask the venue before making that all-important decision.

Whether you are planning to get married in Tipperary or further afield, these questions should assist you with this important first step.

Getting Married In Tipperary

Dates:
Have you set a date in stone or can you be flexible to get the venue you really want? The very first question you need to ask your venue of choice is whether they can accommodate you on your preferred date. Once you have confirmed the venue you can then move on to booking entertainment that is available on the same day.

Budget:
Budget is incredibly important, and you need to know that the venue can deliver everything you need without costs spiraling out of control. Make sure you ask your venue to specify any ‘extras’ that could catch you off guard when the time for payment comes.

Capacity:
For those of you planning a large wedding, you will need to give an approximation of numbers to the venue to ensure they can seat and comfortably accommodate all of your guests for the big day. If they can’t accommodate the numbers you were hoping for, you will have a decision to make. Which is most important to you, your dream venue or a large guest list?

Civil Ceremonies:
If you are planning a civil ceremony and hope to host the ceremony and the celebrations in the same venue, you will need to check that the venue has been registered with the HSE. A full list of HSE approved wedding venues is available on the HSE website.

The Space:
Ask the event coordinator at the venue to give you a tour of the space. If at all possible, ask if you could see the room on the morning of another wedding before the guests arrive. This will give you a good idea of the seating arrangements and the space available in the venue.

Décor:
In most cases the venue will decorate the space for you at no extra cost, however, you may want to add some of your own touches to make it special. Speak with your point of contact and ask if you can be involved in the décor process.

Point of Contact:
To ensure everything runs smoothly throughout the planning process it is always best to have one dedicated point of contact at your venue of choice. Upon your first meeting with the venue you should specify this request and a direct phone number and email address for ease of contact.

Recommendations:
Every venue will have a list of approved venues that they will be happy to share with the bride and groom. This can be a great resource if you are looking for the best entertainment, photographer or car hire service. Drangan Video is proud to be recommended by hotels and venues in Tipperary and throughout Ireland.

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.

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.

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.

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!
