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.

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!

Drangan Video: The Changing Face of Wedding Videography

Over the past 25 years as a wedding videographer, I have seen a huge change in trends, technologies and editing software. The tools available to the modern videographer have greatly enhanced the service we now offer and Drangan Video has embraced each and every one of these changes.

In this blog post I’m going to tell you a bit about our modern approach to wedding videography and the changes we have made over the years to become one of Ireland’s most sought after wedding videographers.

Wedding Videography Tipperary

Brides and grooms consistently tell us that they are surprised at just how hands off we are, never intruding upon personal moments and in many cases their guests have told them they didn’t even know we were there! This style of non-intrusive wedding videography allows us to capture the moments as they really happen and deliver a beautiful documentary of the day to our wonderful brides and grooms. How do we do it, I hear you ask?

Changing Technologies

Let’s take the exchanging of vows as an example. During the wedding we make a point of never getting in the way of the natural progression of the vows or ceremony and we do this by setting up our cameras and filming from a distance. Modern technology has given us with the ability to do this by providing the groom with a pen-like audio recorder that can be inserted into their suit or shirt pocket. This tiny device picks up all audio and ensures we can deliver top quality sound on all videos, regardless of how far away we physically are. There is absolutely no need for a modern videographer to be intruding upon these special moments!

Changing Trends

It has now almost become a tradition to film the preparations on the morning of the wedding and I absolutely love this trend! Providing our videography services to couples on the morning of the wedding means that we get to truly capture the excitement in the hours before the ceremony. The enthusiasm is absolutely infectious and we are blessed to capture some truly tender moments between close friends, families and neighbours. When our couples look back on these moments, they get to see parts of the day that would otherwise remain a mystery. It really is truly special to share these moments after the big day with your new spouse and enjoy them together for the first time.
Changing Approach

Over our time in the industry, we have honed our skills to a degree that ensures none of our shots are ever set up. This takes great pressure off the couple and means they can go about their day without ever having to worry about whether the videographer is capturing everything. We will be your eyes and ears for the day, never missing a tender moment or asking your guests to pose for shots. Our approach is natural, non-intrusive and results in a truly incredible documentary of your big day.

We realise that you have spent months if not years planning for this momentous occasion and we want you to enjoy every moment of the day.

Documentary Wedding Videographer  Kilkenny
What is documentary style wedding videography?

Documentary style is best described as ‘natural’ videography. There are no posed shots, no direction from the videography team, and no interruptions to your big day. We simply become invisible to you and your guests and capture the moments of your celebration in a very natural way. Discreet, documentary style videography tells the story of your day exactly how it happened!

Benefits of discreet, non-directed wedding videography

There are many benefits to this style of wedding videography, these include but are not limited to:

• Total discretion – we never interfere in proceedings and make sure that our presence is almost unnoticeable to your guests.
• No posed shots – this means we will never take you away from the natural flow of the day. We hang back and take the natural footage that presents itself during this important day.
• No direction from our team – you won’t hear any of the Drangan team giving directions to the bridal party or guests. They won’t even know we’re in the room!
• We let you tell your story to the camera – we blend into the background and capture the story of your day as it unfolds naturally.
• Authenticity – Our documentary style and discreet presence adds to the authenticity of your wedding video. When the guests are unaware of our presence, they become relaxed and act naturally in front of our discreetly positioned cameras.
• Emotions captured as they happen – real emotions, un-staged smiles and a true reflection of how you and your guests are feeling throughout the day.
• More focus on the little things – sometimes the little things can make all the difference to your big day. We pick up on the moments that can sometimes go unnoticed, interactions between relatives who haven’t seen each other in a while, a smile from the corner of the room, a child sleeping in the corner – it’s these little moments that make our style so special.
• Less intrusive than traditional videography – our discreet, hands-off approach to capturing the moments in your day mean there is no intrusion to the celebrations.
