Weddings in Kilkenny and Tipperary during Covid 19

The team here at Drangan Video have been providing wedding video services to Brides and Grooms in Kilkenny, Tipperary and across Ireland for over 25 years. During this time we have faced many challenges and have successfully delivered top quality wedding videos for our wonderful couples.

With the onset of Covid 19 in Ireland back in March, many of our Tipperary/Kilenny couples had to postpone their weddings or reduce the numbers in attendance to adhere with health guidelines. This has been an incredibly stressful time for brides and grooms and we commend them on their resilience, optimism and determination to keep their families and guests safe during this time.

Now that there is light at the end of the tunnel, with the numbers decreasing day on day, couples who are planning their wedding now have a clearer picture of how their revised big day will look. We encourage our brides and grooms to contact us with any queries they might have and we very much look forward to capturing your special moments on video for you to share with family and friends.

Some pointers for planning your wedding in 2020:

• All wedding suppliers should have procedures in place that you can review prior to the big day. You should ask the vendor for a copy of these procedures/policies so that you can be assured they are taking the necessary precautions throughout the day.
• Speak to your venue about the numbers they can cater for and keep in mind that any numbers provided in current health guidelines will need to allow for staff at the venue.
• Ask your venue if they have an outdoor space you can use for the ceremony or reception. Currently, outdoor weddings and events can cater for larger groups of people, so this may be an option for those who do not want to reduce guest numbers.
• Should you be exchanging vows in a church or religious venue, speak to the priest or celebrant about seating for your guests. Can seating be arranged to accommodate social distancing between family groups?
• Guests coming from abroad may have trouble getting to the wedding due to travel restrictions or they simply may not feel comfortable about travelling just yet. Speak to these guests and reassure them that there is no pressure for them to travel.
• Organise a live stream of the event for those who may not be able to attend on the big day. The team here at Drangan Video can talk you through the process involved and provide a link for you to share with family and friends both at home and abroad.

Feeling Sad About Postponing Your Wedding

Covid 19 has played havoc with weddings here in  Ireland and around the world  so many  couples having  to postpone their wedding day.  If you are feeling depressed and  powerless  you’re not the only one.  In this blog post we have come with  a few  ideas to help you cope with the disappointment.

Feeling Depressed  About Postponing Your Wedding

From all here at Drangan Video we are so  sorry  that  your special day has been postponed  our thoughts are with you  A wedding is one of the biggest events in a couples life it binds two people together  for life.
Organizing  a wedding is an  emotional  time with a huge build to the big day  months of planning  and clever  financial  management are just the tip of the iceberg.  Then  having to  postpone and re-plan all over again  is  very difficult  to handle.

A wedding cancellation  is a huge life changing  event for a couple, but with everything that’s going on in the world over the past few months  if all your loved ones are healthy and well, you are still very lucky and all is not lost. When you’re  trying to come to terms  with having to postpone  your big day, you might also  be feeling guilty for not appreciating  what you do have, this is typical human reaction the most important thing you can do is to accept that you are allowed to feel sad.  We understand that  our brain reacts differently to certain emotions  that  inner voice might be saying this is the worst thing that has ever happened  I cannot cope with this terrible  news  it is not what I wanted.

It is natural to feel all of those emotions  each partner may experience them at  at different times or in different ways  just because they are not showing their emotions in the way that you are, it doesn’t mean they aren’t feeling them. Men do have a tendency to hide their feelings  where as  women like  to talk about and share their emotions. The worst thing you can do is tell your partner that they are overreacting, being oversensitive or taking things out of proportion, just  listen  and accept their point of view. You don’t have to fully agree  but acknowledge your partners point of view and tell them that they make sense.

Going forward think about the bigger picture, you are both healthy and well  you will get married, it’s  not at the time you had originally planned  but you have the rest of you lives to enjoy being married. Look to the future think about about the stories you can tell your children  years from now.  How you coped as a couple,  How  you worked together as a couple to overcome the challenge.   Some couples have been keeping a lock down diary to remind them of how they  got through this time with strength and resilience, just remember that its just one postponed day in your life  and your relationship is far more meaningful that that.

Why hire a wedding videographer

Many couples struggle with the idea of having a wedding video, they see it as an unnecessary cost  here at Drangan Video we speak to couples who didn’t have a videographer on their big day, many say it’s one of their greatest mistakes

Wedding photographers are brilliant at capturing special moments from your wedding day, there are certain things they can’t capture for instance audio and movement Hiring a professional videographer will ensure that  you will  get all pictures and sound bites  from your big  day  included  in one memorable wedding film that  you will  treasure for ever.

 Wedding videos are not like the old days

Some couples think that wedding videography  means  bright lights huge cameras   in your face all day.  Today’s wedding videographers adapt a more documentary  easygoing style of filming, meaning you might not even notice them at all during the day, here at Drangan Video one of our favourite compliemenyts  is “We didn’t  see you all day”

 Video captures audio and movement

The greatest reason why you should consider hiring  a wedding videographer, video captures magical audible moments  such as your mom’s  words of advice as she helps with putting on the wedding dress,  your Dad’s  reaction to seeing you in your outfit for the first time,  or the fun and laughter during the morning preps. These are the moments that  you’ll relive everytime you look at your video long after your wedding day,  there’s also no better way to document your vow exchange. Video will also capture those important moments from the wedding reception, such as toasts and songs and not forgetting the first dance.

Video captures the non set up moments

Your photographer will get all those sometimes boring set up posed  shots, but for everything for else  you will  need a professional discreet videographer. And since there’s no posing, you won’t have to worry about been embarrassed or looking  or awkward on video, just  enjoy the fun and celebrations into the late hours

 Wedding videos are not long dull epic films

Gone are the days that  a wedding video  plays out as a boring 3 hour slideshow,  your videographer will  capture all the emotion and fun from the full day and deliver as a short  engaging three  to five-minute highlights film.  Same day edits are popular  in wedding videography, meaning your videographer will capture the best moments from the morning preps up to and including moments from the ceremony  that  be viewed at the reception, short highlight films are also shared on Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo and Youtube
