Fab Wedding Video Langton House Hotel Kilkenny

One of the perks of been a wedding videographer in Kilkenny is the large choice of wedding venues that the city has to offer, all of them are top class locations and most are situated in kilkenny city.
In this weeks Drangan Video blog post we are featuring the wedding of Pam and Sean Dando who were married in Langtons Hotel  they were one of the lucky Irish couples to get married before the covid lock-down in March 2020.

Langton House Hotel Kilkenny

Langtons  provide a state of the art  wedding service  and have been listed as the top  rated Wedding Venue in Leinster, Langton House Hotel has acquired numerous  awards in many different areas of hospitality. The central  location allows  guests  access to  river walks, Kilkenny Castle, Rothe House, St Canice’s Cathedral,  and all the high street shops that the Marbel City has to offer.

Sean and Pam’s Wedding Video Story

The story begins with Pam and her bridal party getting ready in Pam’s parents house in lower Conahy Kilkenny best known in local GAA circles as the home of the famous Conahy Shamrocks hurling club. It was a brave move for me as a Tipperary supporter making  my way over the county border to record another Kilkenny wedding.
Pam’s bridal preps look great on video, lots of special moments with Pam her Mum & Dad and not forgetting the star of the film little flower girl Isla, who was not in no way camera shy, Pam’s mum lending a hand with the wedding dress is one of my favorite highlights from the morning preps.

Over the past 25 years we have seen many changes on the Irish wedding scene. Video technology has come on leaps and bounds, which means we can offer a service that is non-intrusive and discreet while delivering superior footage from every angle. We have also seen many changes in the way weddings are now celebrated across the country, from church weddings to humanist outdoor ceremonies, the world is now your oyster when it comes to getting married in Ireland, and the great news is, Kilkenny provides an incredible range of choices for couples of all beliefs and none.

 Wedding Video Supplier Kilkenny

When we first started providing wedding videography services in Kilkenny and every other county across Ireland, we found that wedding videos were never quite as important to the bride and groom as photography was. This has now flipped on its head and we see videography and photography working side-by-side at most wedding celebrations. In some cases, photography has now taken a back seat to wedding videography with guests providing the bride and groom with the images they have taken on the day via social media and image sharing apps.

Wedding Films Kilkenny

Another significant change we have seen for our Kilkenny weddings is the trend towards longer advance bookings. Most couples that come to us, upon first contact are at least one year out from the date of their wedding. In the past, we were no strangers to receiving bookings in the final months before a wedding, but this has all changed now, leaving the bride and groom with ample time to plan every aspect of the big day.

Morning Preps
It was a winter wedding  only by name, December 21st was a crisp dry sunny day, I like  winter weddings the low angled sunshine combined with bare trees  adds to the challenge of producing a stunning  winter wedding film, here at drangan video we love a challenge
Morning preps at Sarah’s parents house kicked of with some cracking drone video footage capturing the rich Kilkenny country side, its amazing how green everything looked on the shortest day of the year.
The Tyrrell family are so nice I felt very much at home in their company it was great working with Tanya from Eden Photography she is a very creative photographer we work very well together. Elaine Murphy  Bridal/Occasions Hair by Elaine was on duty definitely  the most popular choice by Kilkenny Brides, I’m also looking forward been her videographer later this year.
Sarah’s morning preps are included in the highlights video, she was a fun and positive  Bride to work with as the song says it was begging to look like a beautiful day.

St Joseph’s Church Foulkstown
is to be found on the Waterford Road, just outside of Kilkenny city. Surrounded by a graveyard the church has an old feel. The inside of the church is plainly decorated but kept in immaculate condition. There is enough seating for a congregation of roughly 180 wedding guests. There is some extra seating on either side of the altar. A choir balcony is located at the rear of the church which is ideal for the wedding singers/music
The curch was full to capacity  for Sarah and David’s ceremony, space was tight for shooting video  my camera setup consisted of a static cam up on the gallery and a mobile  cam on a monopod at the top of the church, the couple decided to not to have the traditional greeting line at the church door allowing more time for the photo shoot.

Tips
Budgeting for your  video is a popular topic, my advice  is to budget for video from the very beginning. In the past  couples would leave the videographer  out of the  budget list  now with the increase in quality  the attitudes towards video have changed now video is on a par with wedding photography

Planning a Wedding in December

Over the past decade we have seen a huge upsurge in winter weddings, particularly in the seasonal month of December. If you and your loved one are getting married in December of this year or 2020, we hope you find this article helpful when making your all-important plans.

The team here at Drangan Video are always delighted to film winter weddings and we come fully equipped with all the latest technology, know-how and videography equipment to ensure we capture your special day in all its winter glory!

Kilkenny Wedding Videographer

Below you will find some tips to ensure your winter wedding goes as smoothly as possible:

1. Choosing your venue
When choosing a venue for your winter wedding, it’s important to take the weather into account. If you have opted for a church wedding ceremony, try to choose a venue that is close to the church so that any adverse weather conditions won’t impact on your guests when travelling between the ceremony and the celebrations. For those of you who are exchanging vows in a civil ceremony, select a venue that will allow you to host both the ceremony and the reception in the same location. This will ensure that you and your guests will not have to brave the cold weather unnecessarily.

2. Daylight Hours are Shorter
It’s important to remember that daylight hours are at a minimum during the month of December, so you will need to plan accordingly. Plan your ceremony as early as possible to leave ample time for photographs, outdoor video shoots and travel time to your venue.

3. Keep Warm
Keeping you, your bridal party and your guests warm and comfortable should be a top priority when planning your big day, after all you don’t want the most important people in your life to be suffering with colds and coughs after your big day. Purchase warm shrugs or wraps for your bridesmaids and offer guests blankets and throws in any outdoor seating areas. You should also ask the venue to provide outdoor heating in any areas where guests might congregate.

4. Winter Warming Drinks
Upon arrival at your reception, it’s a great idea to offer guests a warming celebratory drink, whether that’s mulled wine, Irish coffees or a hot whisky, you can be assured that your guests will appreciate the effort on a cold December day.

5. Winter Wedding Décor
Speak with your venue about the seasonal décor that will be in place in the suite or room you have booked for your celebrations. You may not celebrate Christmas or may not be a particularly religious person, so it’s important that you make your décor requirements clear to the hotel or venue in advance. Keep in mind that the seasonal décor in hotels and churches at this time of year could really help you save some money!

6. Winter Wedding Favours
If you are a lover of Christmas and want to include some winter wedding favours for your guests, you could consider personalised tree baubles, sugared almonds or Christmas crackers. All are readily available online and some or Ireland’s leading charities sell Christmas tree baubles at affordable rates!
