In this blog post we are going to stray somewhat from our normal wedding themed blog posts and use our experience as wedding videographers in Kilkenny and Tipperary to share with you some walks you can take during your daily exercise. Remember that you can only take these walks if they are no further than 2km from your home and always strictly follow government guidelines.

Over the past 25 years, the team here at Drangan Video have been blessed to capture hundreds of weddings in Tipperary and Kilkenny. This experience has given us a real in-depth knowledge of the local area and the wonderful walks and trails that can be found in both rural and urban settings.

Jenkinstown Walk – A Coillte Amenity.

Situated just outside Kilkenny city centre is the walled garden loop of Jenkinstown walk. According to the Coillte website, their parks and woodlands remain open for pedestrians only and all car parks are closed. This measure has been taken to ensure citizens who live within 2km of the amenity can use the facility while adhering to current guidelines. Take a stroll through this wonderful trail and let your worries drift away. The greenery, flora and fauna that is in abundance in this wonderful setting makes this the perfect place for your daily walk.

Tory Hill, Mullinavat

When you are partaking in individual exercise over the next few weeks, we can wholly recommend Tory Hill for its breath-taking scenery and woodland tracks. The views from the top of Tory Hill will clear the head and offer superb photography opportunities.

The Dun Ui Faolain Loop is another wonderful Coillte amenity that can be enjoyed when undertaking your individual exercise or with children from your household in this fabulous weather. Please do note that all car parks at Coillte amenities are closed, so only take this walk if it is within 2kms of your home. The loop walk in Dun Ui Faolain takes you through Glenbawn Wood, along the banks of the Suir and is an easy stroll for those who may not be acclimatised to regular exercise.

Situated just one kilometre from the town of Inistioge, Woodstock House and Gardens is a firm favourite with our brides and grooms. The restored walled gardens and the views across the River Nore Valley are absolutely breath-taking and always look great in wedding videos and photos. Take a walk through the terraced garden or rose garden and enjoy the wonderful surroundings as we work our magic and capture the moment on video for you to remember long into the future.

Kilfane Waterfall and Glen
Is there anything more magical than a waterfall in the lush green Irish countryside? Many of our brides and grooms ask us to recommend backdrops for wedding videography and photography and as one of our top choices (weather dependent), we will always encourage couples to visit Kilfane Waterfall and Glen. Perhaps take a stroll there yourself this springtime, when the leaves are just starting to appear on the trees and experience the wonder of the area first hand. You won’t be disappointed!

Jenkinstown

Whether you want to capture some images or photos in the woodland or at the old house in Jenkinstown Park, you can be assured that this area is the perfect backdrop to set the tone for your big day.

Review of 2019, Drangan Video Tipperary

As a Tipperary based wedding video professional, I have for over 25 years had the pleasure of capturing wedding videos for wonderful couples right across Tipperary and Kilkenny. 2019 proved to be a very busy year and for this the team at Drangan Video are extremely grateful. Being a part of your big day and providing you with a beautiful memento of your celebrations is truly important to us.

In a year when our beloved Stone Throwers brought home the Liam McCarthy Cup for the 27th time, we celebrated with the rest of the county and captured many blue and yellow themed weddings across Tipperary. What a wonderful year for the Premier County!

In 2019 I had the pleasure of meeting many couples from Tipperary, Kilkenny and beyond and spent countless hours filming the special moments of these big days. It goes without saying that each and every one of these occasions was unique in its own way and brought me just as much pleasure as it did the guests and families of the brides and grooms. When I look back on 2019, I am struck by the ingenuity and creativeness of the couples I worked with. The décor, the styles, the planning and the entertainment was second to none and our couples deserve some real kudos for their planning prowess.

2019 brought some challenges with the weather at times, both for us and for our wonderful couples. However, hail, rain, snow or shine, it never impacted on the celebrations for the big day. One of my favourite parts of wedding videography is overcoming these weather challenges and we always come prepared for every eventuality. With more red and orange weather warnings than we’ve ever experienced in a calendar year, 2019 really gave us something to get our teeth into and has given us the opportunity to explore different techniques, embracing the weather on the day to provide spectacular footage! So whether you’re organising a wedding in December, March or July, don’t let the weather dictate your plans – we’ll find our way around every situation to deliver the perfect wedding video.

There were many special moments for us as a team in 2019, each one of these are due to the couples we have had the pleasure of working with. We value your trust in us and know that your special moment of 2019 was the day you both said ‘I do’. When we are lucky enough to be a part of your wedding, knowing that you have chosen us spurs us on even more to deliver all of your special moments wrapped up in the form of the very best wedding video we can deliver.

For those of you who are planning a wedding in Tipperary , Kilkenny , Limerick or Cork  for 2020 or 2021, please do give me (Eamon) a call here at Drangan Video.

Thank you for choosing Drangan Video in 2019

Are you proposing this Christmas ?

Are you hoping to pop the question over the festive period? Feeling a little nervous, excited and anxious? You have absolutely nothing to worry about! Proposing to the person you love will be an amazing experience and one you and your partner will remember for the rest of your lives. If you and your partner are not big on grand gestures or uncomfortable with elaborate set-ups, do things your own way. Every proposal should be different and unique to the couple involved, there’s no need to plot some elaborate scheme when a simple ‘will you marry me’ is often the most perfect thing you can do.

For those of you who are looking for some proposal ideas, we have listed some below that may help to inspire your own unique proposal.

Wedding Video Tipperary

1. The Advent Calendar
Make an advent calendar for the love of your life; use a simple booklet or a series of gifts or notes each day for your partner to open. If you opt for daily small gifts, you can simply pop the ring into the date of your choosing, if you want them to read a special note every day, you can write your special question for the date of your choice. A wonderful surprise for that someone special in your life.

2. Hang it on the Tree
Yes, as simple as it sounds, this little idea is one of our favourites. Simply wrap the ring box in some beautiful packaging or cover it in gold or silver foil and hide it in amongst the other decorations on the tree. On the day of the proposal you can ask your partner where that decoration came from and ask them to take a closer look!

3. Christmas Morning with the Kids
If you have children, there’s nothing better than getting them involved in Mammy and Daddy’s happy day. Ask the kids to present your partner with the ring, all wrapped up with the other presents under the tree. This will be a moment that you can all remember together for the rest of your lives.

4. Christmas Dinner Proposal
If you’d like to propose on Christmas Day, try to incorporate the proposal in with your family meal. Consider hiding the ring in your partner’s dessert (make sure it’s not too well hidden, you want them to see it and not eat it!) or using the ring as a napkin holder on their place setting.

Whatever way you choose to propose to that someone special in your life, you can be assured that it’s always the question that matters most. Whether you plan it well in advance or simply pop the question at a time that feels right, hearing ‘I do’ will be all that’s needed to make your proposal a success.

For all you budding fiancés out there, we wish you nothing but happiness and our heartiest congratulations for the years ahead
