Top Quality Beautiful Wedding Videos In Tipperary

About Drangan Video
In this blog post I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a bit about our services, the areas we cover, the methods we use and of course cover some of the reasons why you should choose Drangan Video as your wedding videography provider.
Based in Drangan, Co. Tipperary, I (Eamon) founded Drangan Video in 1995 as a professional wedding videography business. It has always been a belief of mine, that if you are going to offer a service, you should do so with the utmost commitment and drive.  My love of videography has never waned over this time and to be honest I still look forward to each and every wedding I have the pleasure of filming. Over these past 11 years, Drangan Video has gone from strength to strength, technology has changed massively and some trends have come full circle. I pride myself greatly on keeping up to date with all the latest equipment, videography trends and modern techniques as well as constantly delivering high quality wedding videos for each and every customer.

Because Drangan Video is a full time business for me and not a part-time job or hobby, I find that I am able to dedicate all of the precious time that is needed to provide a truly great service and end product.

There are a number of key points that separate Drangan Video from the vast competition that is available in today’s market:

1: Professional Editing – Here at Drangan Video I not only shoot all wedding videos myself, I also edit every minute of video before delivery to my clients. Many wedding videographers will outsource this important task to an editing company, as they do not have the skills within their own business to do so competently. By providing this editing service, I am able to oversee all aspects of your most important wedding video and can guarantee quality each and every time.

 

  1. Attention to Detail – I am a full-time wedding videographer and editor, which means I can dedicate all of my time to achieving perfection just for you.

 

  1. Transparency – You the customer, can view my portfolio of work at any time, allowing you to see deliverables for yourself before you make that all important decision. Wedding videos are available to view right here on the website any time or alternatively pop over to Facebook and catch a glimpse of sample videos, reviews and testimonials left by very happy customers.

 

Discretion – The approach I take to videography means, I will never intrude upon your big day. I do not set up any posed shoots, nor do I instruct the bride and groom or any of the wedding party during the day. When you choose Drangan Video to film your wedding you can be assured of a service that in no way interrupts the flow of your very special day.

Drangan Video is available for weddings nationwide so whether you’re in Tipperary, Cork or Dublin I would absolutely love to hear from you.

Traditional First Dance or something a little bit Different?

Over the past number of years  we have seen a huge change in the way newly-weds approach the first dance, some of these have been worthy of YouTube and Facebook fame and as a wedding videographer they  have been an absolute joy  to shoot. Whether you are getting married in Kilkenny or Tipperary, Cork or Limerick we would be absolutely honoured to be your wedding videographer  and capture this very special dance on your big day!

In this wedding blog post we are going to talk a little bit about how the landscape of the first dance has changed and how some of the most wonderful new traditions are starting to emerge from this trend.

For those of you who prefer a more traditional wedding dance, we would urge you not to feel pressured into providing an entertaining dance if this is something you are not comfortable with. It’s really not for everyone and in all circumstances the traditional first dance in the way you feel most comfortable is absolutely wonderful to watch and in our case also to record on wedding video.

We first started to notice the trend for non-traditional wedding dances emerging in Ireland about 10 years ago when YouTube videos seemed to be popping up every other day. This trend seems to have started in the US and it really wasn’t very long before brides and grooms in Tipperary, Kilkenny  and all over  the country started adding their own imaginative twists to both their first dance and the wedding ceremonies.

If you and your intended have decided that you would like to try something a little bit different for your first dance and are unsure of where to start. We would recommend looking first in your local area to see if there are any dance instructors in the locale that can give you some tips and advise you on some nifty dance moves you can do for your chosen song.

Looking for inspiration? You probably won’t go far wrong by looking through the thousands of videos available on YouTube or Vimeo and checking out some of the more varied dances others have done before you.

The very first thing you should do though is probably choose the song you would like to dance to. Then think about who you would like to involve in the routine, perhaps you would just like it to be you and your new husband or wife or maybe you would like to include the whole bridal party or individuals from the guest list?

Don’t forget to practice! Most importantly, you’re going to need to organise a rehearsal schedule with all participants and make sure everyone involved has the time to commit to learning the dance routine.

Enjoy yourself – This is the key to all of the best first dances. Enjoy the moment and only do what you and your new spouse feel comfortable with, soak up the atmosphere around you and truly immerse yourself in this very first dance as a married couple.

Here at Drangan Video we would be absolutely honoured to get your first dance on video for you to enjoy time and time again. Speak to Eamon here any time to get an idea of how a professionally shot wedding video can become an integral part of your big day. Plus, you’ll get to sit back, relax and enjoy your choreographed first dance in the comfort of your own home or with friends and family, what could be better?

Wedding Planning for all Weather

Regardless of where you are based in Ireland, it’s an unfortunate truth that we are a country that cannot rely on the weather any time of the year. So whether you are planning on getting married in June or January, in Kilkenny, Tipperary or Galway you need to ensure you have planned for all four seasons in one day.

 

As much as we hope for the best weather in the summer months, unless you are getting married the week the leaving cert starts, it’s almost a certainty that it will rain or be blustery at some stage during the day. Whatever the date, whatever the location, make sure the best man and grooms party have a car full of umbrellas just in case. If you’re one of the lucky ones you could be using them as parasols later in the day!

Wedding Planning Advice For weddings In Tipperary

Plan for the Rain

Have umbrellas, light anoraks and shawls at the ready for your bridal party and guests if there is any period of time where you are likely to be outdoors for a spell. Ask the bridesmaids to bring spare shoes with them in the event they get wet and make sure you have transport arranged that will drop you right to the door of the ceremony and the reception venue.

Plan for the Sun

It’s not all doom and gloom, we do also experience some of the most wonderful summer sunshine across the country and we should also remember to plan for this as best we can. If the forecast is showing sunshine and high temperatures, it’s a good idea to have your bridesmaids and groomsmen apply sun cream that morning before applying any makeup and have some parasols and mini electric pocket fans available for the guests and the bridal party. You can provide flip-flops, antiperspirant and spritz bottles by leaving a hamper in the ladies and men’s toilets. This is a lovely touch for those who may suffer with the heat.

Plan for the Wind

Planning for a windy day isn’t quite as easy as it is for the rain and sun, but we’re sure you’ll find these tips helpful.

Make sure you have a surplus of hairspray for yourself the bride, all of the bridesmaids and the guests (both male and female). This will ensure you all avoid that windswept look for at least most of the day.

If you are celebrating outdoors, ask the venue to provide windbreakers and a strong marquee for use by all the guests.

Plan for the Cold

As we’re accustomed to a change in temperatures that can come very fast, we would advise that you also plan for any sudden drops in temperature. A nice touch would be to provide blankets or shawls for your guests who wish to stay outdoors, along with outdoor heating provided by the venue to make for a balmy and relaxing evening without the risk of chills.

 

Plan for Snow

Yes, plan for snow. Obviously this doesn’t apply to any of you who are getting married in summer or autumn but it has been known to snow in Ireland as late as April or May and as early as October. If the weather forecast is predicting a chance of ice or snow then you need to take the time to make sure all of your guests are aware so they can take more time on the roads and book accommodation if necessary. If you do get snow for your Christmas wedding, it will be the most magical piece of Irish weather you can ever have!

 

Whether rain, snow, hail or shine, Drangan Video will always be there on time for your big day. We travel throughout the country right throughout the seasons and would be delighted to be part of your big day by providing our wedding video services. Feel free to give us a call or pop us a message through the contact page and we will get back to you no matter what the weather!

Spring Marquee Wedding Video At Mount Juliet Estate Kilkenny

Here at Drangan Video we are once again in great demand for weddings in Kilkenny and Tipperary, its difficult to find the time for updating or wedding news blog page.  I am finally getting around to sharing the following wedding video highlights, Lisa & Ben were married in the Church Of The Assumption Paulstown Co. Kilkenny they enjoyed a magical Marquee Wedding  at Mount Juliet Estate, Thomastown Kilkenny.

I am a loyal Tipperary Hurling supporter and I also take great pride in the beautiful scenery and landscapes that are to be found between the borders of Waterford and Galway.
When it comes to a choice of top class wedding venues,  Kilkenny  is a clear winner , we need more high quality 4 star wedding venues in Tipperary its a pity that so many Tipperary Brides are heading away from their home county for their wedding reception.

Lisa and Brendan’s  Wedding Video Memories :

The story begins with the usual coverage of the bridal preps at Lisa’s Parent’s house, the video clip contains some lovely shots of the girls getting ready.  Our Diamond Wedding Video Package covers the full day from morning preps up to 11pm, its the most popular choice by Brides in Tipperary and Kilkenny.

A Magical  Wedding  At Mount Juliet Estate Kilkenny:

A Mount Juliet Estate Wedding is a truly unique wedding experience. While the warm ambience of the Riverside Marquee offers a high level of sophistication & a timeless elegance, there are lots of opportunities to add those personal touches if you wish.

Relish in the tranquillity of 500 acres of natural parkland with the gentle lap of the River Nore beside mares with their new foals at Ballylinch Stud. Located a moments’ walk from Mount Juliet House, our Riverside Marquee seats up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing. Guests will soak up the grandeur of our Georgian Manor House where drinks and canapés are served on the lawns or throughout the fabulous main hall.
