Naming the Tables at your Wedding

Over the past decade, the team here at Drangan Video have provided wedding video services to hundreds of brides and grooms across Ireland. We get to see the new trends in décor, watch some of the most amazing first dances and experience first hand the artistic ingenuity of our wonderful couples. In this article we’re going to talk about a growing trend that we think you can really have some fun with.

Gone are the days of simply numbering the tables at your wedding venue, more and more we are starting to see a strong trend towards naming tables… and we absolutely love it!

Think about the places, songs or movies that really hold a special place in your heart and then let your ideas flow as you begin to name your tables.

Destinations that are close to your heart:

Think of places that are special to you and your partner. Perhaps you met in a café in Dublin or holidayed in Paris, maybe your fiancé proposed to you in Rome? Tell your story through the cities and countries that shaped your relationship to date by naming your tables accordingly and perhaps providing a few lines about why this place is so special for you.

Important dates in your lives:

From the date you met to the date you became engaged and every date in between, let your guests share in your memories by naming each table after a special time in your life so far.

Movies that make you smile:

For the movie lovers out there, this is a really fun way to share your favourites with your family and friends. Whether you’re a lover of rom-coms or horror movies, this light-hearted way to name your tables will be a real icebreaker with your guests. Perhaps include some trivia about each movie to get your guests talking at the table?

Songs that make you tap your feet:

A song can trigger a thousand memories and never more so than when in the company of the people you love. Name your tables after songs that are going to appear in your set list a little later on or tunes that tell a story about your relationship.

A book lover’s paradise:

Perhaps you and your intended are real bookworms and want to share your favourite reads with your guests? Design table name cards that mimic book covers with quotes from the happy couple in the place of critic quotes. If you are a fan of a certain book series (think Harry Potter) you should have enough books to name every table!

Quotes with meaning:

Borrow the words of your heroes by using famous quotes to name your tables. Whether you opt for witty and humorous or topical and formal is totally up to you.

The places you love to visit together:

Whether it’s your Saturday trip to the local market, a restaurant you love to eat in or your local bar, name your tables after the places you feel most comfortable.

Work with nature:

Name your tables after your favourite flowers or herbs and use this opportunity to add to your table décor. A bunch of thyme at one table, a peony at another, the room will be smelling and looking wonderful!

Happy Wedding Day Memories In Mount Juliet

I am delighted and proud to be sharing the following wedding highlights video in this week’s blog post.
Tipperary Bride Anita and Kilkenny Groom David were married in Grangemockler church followed by a lavish reception in  Mount Juliet.

My day began with a visit to the Meagher homestead in Ninemilehouse   historically called Killcullen the small  Tipperary village  lies  on the border with  Kilkenny  as you pass through the  foothills of Slievenamon.
Anta’s house and farm overlooks the village from and elevated vantage point it was a beautiful setting for the beginning of what was a fab wedding day. It was a pleasure once again to be  working with Tanya of Eden Photography she is a much sought after wedding photographer throughout Kilkenny and Tipperary, we had great fun shooting the wedding preparations Anita was surrounded by her very attentive sisters who were prepared to spoil her with kindness for the day that’s  in it.

Tipperary Bride Mount Juliet
The Church

Grangemockler is a village in southeast  Tipperary,  is the home of the Grangemockler/Ballyneale GAA Club, the small church  is situated in the centre of the village, its a nice wedding ceremony venue just the right size for an average guest list of 200.
David and his groomsmen arrived in ample time to meet and greet their guests who were in no hurry  to move in from the beautiful August sunshine. The sound of car horns marked the arrival of the bridal party closely followed by Anita and her Dad Tony, any lingering guests quickly made the way into the already packed church.
Anita was a really cool Bride not a panic bone in her body, David was slightly nervous as he stood at the top of the aisle holding their little  daughter Aine, the emotion of that moment is nicely captured on Camera.

The Wedding Reception

Mount Juliet is  walled estate situated in Thomastown Kilkenny, it has some 1,500 acres of parkland providing a perfect location for a romantic wedding day celebration.
Driving through the gates of Mount Juliet and moving through the estate I noticed  golfers on perfectly manicured   greens, riders on handsome horses,  the Georgian mansion overlooking the River Nore came into view it was a sight to behold.
Anita and David enjoyed a warm recepton from friends and family , it was the perfect setting for capturing some amazing camera footage.

Happy Wedding Day Memories

A big thank you to David & Anita for choosing Drangan Video and for allowing their highlights clip to be shared on this blog post and on facebook.
The video features lovely sound bites from the David’s speech which is quite emotional.

Thanks for visiting my wedding page, if you are in the process of wedding planning and are thinking of having your big captured on film please feel free to contact myself Eamon who will be more than happy to discuss our range of wedding packages for 2019/20120.

Gift your Wedding Favours to Irish Charities

Getting married is without doubt one the happiest days of any couples life and we love nothing more than sharing those special moments with our Brides and Grooms. This post was inspired by the many generous Irish couples we have had the pleasure of meeting over the years and for this we are most grateful. Increasingly, we are seeing that couples are now donating to Irish charities instead of opting for the traditional wedding favours for their guests. In this post we are going to list some charities that have benefitted from these donations and perhaps inspire others to consider doing something similar on their own wedding day.

Wedding Video Tipperary

Every couple we spoke to who made the decision to include a charity close to their heart in their wedding plans, said it gave them a real feeling of pleasure to know that their wedding helped a charity in need.

Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind

This amazing Irish charity allows couples to make a donation directly or purchase items from their online shop, which can be given to your guests as favours. Their online shop includes everything from cuddly toys and candles to Christmas baubles and calendars. You can also purchase tented cards to display on your tables – raising vital awareness and contributing to the feel-good atmosphere of your big day.

The Irish Cancer Society

The Irish Cancer Society provides invaluable support to those who have been impacted by cancer. By making a donation to this very worthwhile cause you can feel secure that your contribution will really make a difference to someone’s life. Visit their online shop and purchase a pack of 10 wedding favour cards in gold or silver for just €40 or make a donation directly to the charity.

The RNLI

The RNLI have been providing lifesaving services to the people of Ireland and the UK since 1824. No doubt we have all seen footage of the dangerous work they do to save the lives of others at some stage. To contribute to this wonderful charity and provide your guests with a little memento, you can visit their online shop and purchase everything from RNLI pins to pocket diaries.

The Make a Wish Foundation

The Make a Wish Foundation offer tented thank you cards for each donation of €150 that can be displayed at the tables in your venue. Alternatively you can pop over to their online shop and purchase some beautiful goodies for your guests. Choose from wrist bands, pins, cookbooks, nail files or book marks and show your guests that giving is as important as receiving on your big day.

Supporting Local Charities

Perhaps you have a local charity that is close to your heart? Why not have a chat with them about purchasing cards or favours for your wedding day? Keep in mind that not all good causes will have the means to provide you with table cards or trinkets but they will be incredibly grateful for your gift.

Why we Love September Weddings

Are you and your beloved getting married this month? Hearty congratulations to you both from all at Drangan Video!

In this article we are going to talk about September weddings, why we love them so much and why September is the most popular month of the year to get married in Ireland.

Did you know that over 15% of weddings in Ireland take place in September? This early autumn month has long been a favourite of Irish brides and grooms and with very good reason:

September Weddings Tipperary and Kilkenny

• For those of you who are hoping for a bit of sunshine on your big day but don’t have a budget for a wedding in June or July, September is the perfect month to get married. Prices for weddings in September are substantially lower than June, July or August.
• From September onwards the natural colours around us change to breath stopping oranges, ambers, golds and reds. This gives you the opportunity to capture the most amazing photographs and video footage for your big day.
• There’s still some heat in the air and a good chance of sunshine in September. Whilst the calendar tells us it’s autumn, September is historically a really pleasant month here in Ireland.
• Autumnal flowers – For those of you who want something a little bit different for your floral décor or bouquets, September offers a beautiful range of colours that are not available at other times of the year. Golds, browns, yellows and bronzes along with brighter more exotic colours are all available throughout September without the additional cost associated with summer blooms. You may also have the advantage of designing your own floral bouquets by using what is available in nature during this wonderful month.
• The daylight hours are starting to shorten, but you can still enjoy the sunshine up until 7:30 pm in the earlier weeks of September. After this time the weather should still be pleasant enough for your guests to sit outside if they wish. This is a wonderful opportunity to decorate your outdoor area with candles, lanterns and atmospheric party lighting.
• September sunsets – Traditionally, the sunsets in September are breathtakingly beautiful and will make for a truly impressive backdrop for any photography or videography.

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.

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!
