Wedding Photography and Videography Checklist

In this blog post we are going to discuss the all-important checklist for the videography and photography on your wedding day. Whilst a professional videographer or photographer will always know exactly what moments to capture, it may helpful for you to compile a checklist beforehand to ensure you’re happy that every moment of your big day is being filmed or photographed.

Preparation Shots:

Some of the most intimate moments we capture for our brides and grooms are in the preparation stage. In the early morning or in the hours before the ceremony, the team here at Drangan video take time to capture those special moments that no one else gets to see. We would wholly recommend that you ask your photographer to be present at this time also.

• Bride, Maid of Honour and bridesmaids getting ready
• Family moments such as the family seeing the bride for the first time in all her finery.
• The wedding cars arriving.
• Filming well wishes with your neighbours and friends in the area.
• Groom, Best Man and groomsmen getting ready.
• Family shots in the home with both families.
• Pinning of the boutonnière between father/best man and son.

The Ceremony:

The ceremony is indeed the most important aspect of your big day and it’s great if your videographer and photographer can work in harmony to capture every moment.

• Guests arriving at the ceremony venue.
• Shots of the exterior and interior of the venue.
• Detailed shots of wedding booklets.
• Family members arriving and being seated by your ushers or grooms party.
• Father and bride making their way into the ceremony and down the aisle.
• Every moment of the ceremony.
• First kiss.
• Processional or exit from the ceremony venue.

The Reception:

Now that it’s time to celebrate, you can kick back and relax, dance, eat, drink and be merry while your photographer and wedding videographer capture every moment of the party.

• Interior and exterior shots of the reception venue.
• Guests signing guest book.
• The all important speeches.
• Cutting the cake.
• Your very first dance as a married couple.

It’s always a nice idea to capture the little things that make up the décor of your big day, so don’t feel shy to ask your photographer or videographer to take shots of the centrepieces, table plan, floral arrangements and wedding favours.

Recent Weddings in County Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video, we have had the pleasure of filming some of the most spectacular weddings recently in County Tipperary. In this blog post we are going to speak about the two venues we visited and give you a flavour of what you can expect if you decide to book your wedding in one of these wonderful venues.

Wedding Videography Tipperary
Ashley Park House, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary

Our first trip was to the amazing Ashley Park House, a luxury wedding venue located in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. This incredible 18th century country house hotel is nestled in 76 acres of breath-taking woodland and overlooks the scenic Lough Ourna.

The bride and groom chose this venue for it’s opulence and natural surroundings and we have to say we were absolutely blown away by the location. The event organisation staff left no stone unturned when it came to organising the perfect day!

On this occasion, the bride and groom opted for a civil ceremony on the grounds of the hotel, and this offered some fantastic opportunities for a wedding video with a difference.

When we first met with our bride and groom in 2017, we spoke to the couple about our documentary style approach to wedding videography. We specialise in discreet filming, meaning we don’t set up posed scenes or disturb the natural flow of the big day in any way. They were delighted with our professional approach and put their trust in us to deliver a wedding video that would capture the most important moments of their big day (and everything in between).

For any couples out there who may be considering The Ashley Park House for their wedding venue, we can wholeheartedly recommend it! We’ve been in this business for well over a decade and rarely come across a venue that is so professional, well organised, welcoming and luxurious.

Coolbawn Quay, Tipperary

Coolbawn Quay is a private village resort situated in northern Tipperary on the shores of Lough Derg. This unique venue offers cottages, rooms and suites scattered throughout the village with a hotel service provided for each guest.

We provided a full wedding video service for our wonderful bride and groom and have to admit we were mesmerised by the location, service and the natural layout of the village. The resulting wedding video captured all aspects of the big day and we made sure to include some of the wonderfully scenic backdrops in the resort to add that something special.

The bride and groom exchanged their vows in a civil ceremony at the waterfront under the lakeshore canopy and were blessed to have incredible weather, which further enhanced the happiness on the day.

For any budding brides and grooms out there who may be considering Coolbawn Quay as a venue for their wedding ceremony or reception, we would urge you to make that booking fast as we’d imagine this place gets booked up fast!

Gifts for the Groomsmen

When planning your wedding it’s important that you set aside some time to pay tribute to those who matter to you the most. Whether that’s your parents, godparents, grandparents or close friends, it’s important that we thank them for their participation and assistance during your big day. Set some of your budget aside to purchase small gifts for your bridal and grooms party and let them know just how much you appreciate them.

Groomsmen at wedding in Kilkenny

In this blog post we are going to concentrate on gifts for the grooms party. These guys are an integral part of your big day and deserve a little something special to say thank you. Below you’ll see some unique suggestions that will make a great memento for your best man and grooms party. Remember that each member of your groom’s party will have their own interests and hobbies, so feel free to break with tradition and get each of them a different gift.

Personalised Shaving Kits:

A personalised shaving kit with an engraved case can make a wonderful gift and you can be sure that it won’t be thrown into the back of a drawer never to be seen again. Think retro with a badger-hair brush and stainless steel razor!

Tickets to an Event:

Is your best man a Metallica fan or perhaps one of your groomsmen is a fan of the theatre? Purchasing tickets to an event they will thoroughly enjoy is a wonderful gift to show them how much they mean to you.

Personalised Keepsakes:

Personalised keepsakes to remember the day make a great gift for all members of the wedding party. Monogrammed wallets, engraved key rings or cufflinks are gifts that will be used long into the future.

Engraved Hipflask:

Engraved hipflasks are a popular choice with very good reason. Perfect for a winter wedding when the grooms party may need a little warm up before the speeches.

Time Pieces with a Difference:

Consider gifting your groomsmen with a wristwatch or a pocket watch, you can be sure they’ll be delighted with such a considerate gift. Add a little something special by getting the watches engraved with the date and a short thank you message.

A Bottle of Something Special:

If your groomsmen enjoy a tipple, go out of your way to source a special bottle of aged whisky or brandy. Ireland is home to some wonderful distilleries with a huge range of special edition spirits that are sure to warm the cockles.

Keep in mind that these gifts don’t need to break the bank and it really is the thought that counts on this occasion. When you are planning your budget, set aside an amount for gifts and stick to this amount.

We’re not blowing our own trumpet here, but Ireland is one of THE most romantic destinations you can possibly imagine. Castles, loughs, folklore and scenery all combine to make Ireland the perfect choice for the most important day of your life.

Let’s take a look at some of the steps you will need to take to plan your Irish wedding.

Some of the legalities:
To marry in Ireland you must be at least 18 old.
Should you wish to marry in a church, this must be your first wedding.
Three months notice is required to be given to a registrar in person so you will have to make two trips.
A €200 fee will be required to obtain your marriage registration form from the registrar.
You will require passports and birth certificates.
For civil ceremonies / non-religious ceremonies for those who may be remarrying, you will require official documentation that supports your entitlement to remarry (divorce papers, dissolution papers or death certificates).

Getting married in a Church:
For those of you who wish to have a Catholic ceremony, you will need to ensure the following:

That you and your intended spouse are confirmed Catholics (exceptions may be granted, however this will need to be discussed with your chosen priest).

As well as the points listed in the previous section you will also need to provide a baptismal cert, confirmation cert and a letter of freedom from your current parish.

As with all Catholic marriages you will be required to undertake a marriage preparation course. Your chosen priest or a registrar will be happy to provide recommendations.

Planning the Wedding:
Once you have all the legalities in place, it’s truly time to start planning your dream Irish wedding.

Ireland has a wealth of wedding venues for you to choose from, whether you’re looking forward to a fairy tale castle or a lakeside retreat, you will find that your options are many.

Because you will be doing a lot of your planning from outside the country, we would highly recommend hiring the services of a professional wedding planner. A strong wedding planner will be able to organise everything from the entertainment and décor right through to transportation, beauty treatments and wedding videographer hire.
