Happy Wedding Video Highlights In Holycross Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video  we take great pride in sharing  our latest Tipperary & Kilkenny wedding  videos on Facebook, Instagram and our weekly wedding blog,  thanks to Mary & Seán for allowing  us  to share their amazing wedding video in this weeks wedding blog news.

We have been living through strange times since the beginning of March so many industries in Ireland have been closed due to Covid restrictions, the wedding industry ground to a halt on March 13th so many couples having to postpone their wedding until later this year or next year. Now here we are  four Months later with  the future looking positive for a return to weddings very soon in Tipperary & Kilkenny

Mary and Seán’s Wedding Video Story

Mary & Seán tied the knot on October 26th 2019 it was a fab fun filled wedding day they were a lovely couple to work with, both so laid back and easygoing.

During the Irish  Famine the  Warhouse in Ballingarry Tipperary  was the location of the 1848 Rebellion. The house shows the history of the Irish  Famine, as I drove by the war house  on my way to Mary’s bridal preps my thoughts were  of how lucky I am  to be heading off to a carefree  happy event.
On arrival I captured nice aerial drone  shots of the hills of Ballingarry it was a very cold crisp morning,  I was glad to get indoors  the sounds of laughter chat and excitement coming from the house was heartwarming. I’ve been shooting weddings in Tipperary and Kilkenny for over 25 years,  all the experience  has been invaluable, the morning preps are a mood  barometer as to what kind of wedding we will have.  The barometer reading was high for this one,  the girls had their hair/makeup done  in Mary’s brother’s house then they set off on foot to Mary’s parents house a 4 minute walk down a winding country road a great opportunity for fun video shots.

Weddings In Holycross Abbey

Mary & Seán’s choice of wedding ceremony location was the beautifully restored Holycross Abbey in Tipperary  its also a  popular tourist attraction where visitors  can ring  the oldest church bell in Ireland it is more 750 years old.  Holy Cross Abbey is the number one choice for weddings ceremonies  in Tipperary.
Seán is a proud Holycross man he is well know in Tipperary GAA circles as a club  hurler and county supporter, the boys arrived early in good time to greet their guests as they made their way into the much needed  warmth of the church.
The aisle in the Holycross Abbey is quite a long walk in heels it was no problem for Mary,  she was in good hands as she made her way up with her brother Pat who handed her over to Seán in an emotional exchange. The ceremony was conducted by  Fr. Derry Quirke  from Ballingarry  he added  a personal touch to the ceremony by mentioning Mary’s late dad who would have been so proud to see his daughter saying yes to the love of her life Seán Comerford.

After the ceremony it was time that familiar joyful  walk down the aisle followed by a lengthy guest receiving line at the church door. Guests were not for hanging around for very long, the late October weather was a chilly a reminder that summer days or becoming a memory. It was a pleasure working with the wonderful  Katie Kavanagh for the photos her work is fun, candid and laid back, she did the bridal party photos around Holy Cross before heading off to the hotel.

Weddings In The County Arms Birr

Birr is one of Ireland’s best heritage towns  It’s most famous landmark, the  Castle Gardens & Science Center  attracts large numbers of  tourists annually, The Great Telescope is my personal favorite must see attraction.

The  County Arms Hotel was founded  by Michael & Margaret Loughnane in 1962 it  is  Offaly’s first four star Hotel.
The  walled Garden is a wedding videographer’s  dream for capturing romantic footage as couples take time out for a quite stroll through the perfectly manicured  gardens and yet  only a few yards from their wedding  guests.
The County Arms is a popular wedding reception location for Tipperary & Kilkenny couples.

It was an honor to have been Mary & Seán’s  videographer I’m   so proud to be sharing their wedding film is this week’s blog news story.

Your Wedding Day Checklist

The big day has finally arrived and all those months of planning are going to pay dividend today! It’s an exciting time and making the most of today and enjoying every moment should be your top priority. It may seem a little late in the day to be writing checklists but if you have this on hand on the morning of the wedding, you can be assured that everything else will fall into place. Most of this list will seem obvious at first glance, but you’d be surprised what can slip your mind when you’re about to embark on the happiest day of your life.

Wedding Day Checklist
For the Bride:

Wedding Dress – This should go without saying, but have your wedding dressed pressed, steamed and ready to wear in the days leading up to your Wedding Day. Hang your dress in a place where it is safe and out of reach from little hands.

Headpieces – If you are wearing a veil or a floral headpiece, double check you have all the necessary clips and pins to secure it in place for your big day. Store in a safe area that is free from damp and curious eyes!

Perfume – Choose a perfume that is precious to you, a scent that will forever remind you of your big day. A scent can bring back a thousand memories and you will want to ensure you have a spritz or two of your favourite perfume before you leave for the ceremony.

Old, new, borrowed, blue – If you’re a traditionalist and want to follow the old, new, borrowed and blue custom, make sure you have all 4 in place at least the night before the ceremony.

Bouquet and Flowers – Make sure you have all of the flowers that were ordered. If you have arranged delivery to your home on the morning of the wedding, ask one of your bridesmaids to double check that everything has arrived before the delivery person leaves.

For Him

Shoes – Yes, it’s unlikely that you would forget your shoes, but have you remembered to polish them and make sure there are no scuffmarks? This should be done the night before the wedding and your shoes stored in a box overnight to keep them in ship-shape.

Accessories – Gather together all of the accessories you will need to wear on your big day. This will include your tie, cufflinks, watch, belt, tie clip and suspenders if you have chosen to wear them. Ask your best man to check that all of the groomsmen have done the same and you can relax in the knowledge that you have everything covered!

Boutonnieres – When your boutonnieres are delivered in the morning, do a thorough check to ensure no one has been left out. You’ll need one for each of the grooms party, your parents and other close family that will be sitting at the top table – and of course yourself.

Cologne – Have you chosen a cologne to wear on the day, does your bride to be have a favourite scent? Make sure you have your cologne on hand for a quick spritz before you leave for the venue and ask your Best Man to bring it to the venue for you so you can have a fresh spritz a little later.

Tipperary Wedding Videography

Drangan Video offer professional wedding videography for couples right across Ireland. We are happy to travel anywhere in the country, so whether you’re based in Cork, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Limerick or Donegal, we would love to hear from you and tell you all about our affordable wedding videography packages, which now include drone footage.

Hiring a Drone for your Wedding Video

Here at Drangan Video, we have been providing wedding videography services for over 25 years and have recently added drone videography  to our packages. The trend for aerial images is set to keep on growing and we have embraced all this technology has to offer over the past 2 years. Take a look at some of the sample videos right here on our website to see how drone footage can add an element of drama, beauty and incredible scenery to your wedding video.

Drone Wedding Video

Wedding drone  videography is rising in popularity for couples right across Ireland (and with good reason), however, it is incredibly important that you deal with an experienced operator. While the end result is of course the most important aspect of drone footage, safety is absolutely paramount at all times. The drones we use here at Drangan Video are essentially mini helicopters with an on-board camera that captures images and video footage from an elevated height. We have undertaken in-depth training in order to provide this service and are fully licensed to operate drones within the Republic of Ireland. Don’t risk accidents on the happiest day of your life by hiring someone who lacks the experience or credentials to operate and film with a hi-tech drone.

Planning is essential for drone photography and videography

In the lead up to your big day, we will put in place a full safety plan to ensure our drones never have a negative impact on your big day. We want you to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that the team from Drangan Video are absolute experts at what they do! We will collaborate with any onsite vendors, including your photographer, will scope out the surrounding area and make ourselves familiar with any flight restrictions that may be in place near the venue. Our promise to you is to provide incredible aerial footage of your wedding without ever having to worry about safety or intrusion on your big day.

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and we aim to capture every moment in all its beautiful glory. Our state of the art drones will deliver panoramic footage that is both unique and memorable. Combined with our traditional wedding videography, the drone footage will add something truly special to your wedding video.

Wedding Ceremony

Are you planning a wedding in the great outdoors or tying the knot in a particularly scenic part of Ireland? If so, we would love to talk to you about the possibilities that drone footage can bring to your wedding video.

Getting creative with the many possibilities aerial footage offers, means wedding videos will never be the same again. Imagine aerial footage of your guests arriving at the venue, perhaps it’s been snowing and the nearby mountains are capped with white! Maybe you and your bridal party fancy taking a lie down in a meadow on a sunny day and want it captured from above? The possibilities are endless! With our experience and ideas and your imagination, we can provide you with the most memorable wedding video possible.

To learn more about adding drone footage to your wedding video, please feel free to get in touch with Eamon here at Drangan Video. Based in Tipperary and Kilkennny we are available to travel nationwide, you can be assured that Drangan Video will provide you with the very best wedding videography service available in Ireland.

How Millennials have changed the Wedding Landscape

Over the past 25 years, Drangan Video has witnessed a huge transformation in the wedding planning process and this, is in a large part down to our fantastic generation of ‘millennials’. In this blog post, I am going to share some of my own insights with you and perhaps provide some tips and tricks for those of you who may feel slightly overwhelmed with the wedding planning process.

Wedding Video Tipperary

Take your time….
If there’s one thing millennials do best it’s never rushing the announcement of their engagement and I think this really takes the pressure off couples in a significant way. In many cases the wedding planning process has already begun before the engagement announcement takes place.

Embrace online tools
Getting married in an era that has technology at its fingertips is one of the fundamental benefits of the millennial age. Wedding planning apps have made tasks so much easier for brides and grooms and are an excellent way to stay on top of your planning without the stress of visiting each supplier and sit-down meetings. Use the Internet to your advantage and cut down on costs and precious time.

Setting Budgets
Perhaps due to recession and rising prices, millennials have become accustomed to budgeting in a really meaningful way. They know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have the wedding of your dreams and have embraced more alternative décor, catering and venue options.

Wedding Planning Tipperary

Your Best Man or Maid of Honour does not have to be Male or Female
This is perhaps one of the nicest developments I have witnessed over the past number of years. If your best friend and most trusted companion is female, does that mean you can’t have them as your best man? Absolutely not! Gender should not be the decision maker when it comes to including the most important people in your wedding party. Throw out that old rulebook and embrace the reality of your friendships, ‘Men of Honour’ and ‘Best Women’ are truly the change we have been waiting for.

Customisation
Customising a theme for your wedding to make it truly unique is a growing trend amongst millennials across Ireland and Europe. Whether you want to use a certain colour scheme throughout the ceremony and reception or go full on ‘themed’ for your big day, you can be sure that your guests will remember your wedding for all the right reasons.
