Getting Married in Waterford City

For those of you who are planning to celebrate your nuptials in Waterford City, we have a host of locations for you to choose from. These locations are perfect for wedding videos or photographic shoots.

The Peoples Park

The Peoples Park in Waterford City is one of the most perfect locations for your wedding photos or video shots. This wonderfully designed park allows you to step away from the city without having to venture too far from you guests or venue. As a backdrop the park contains an eye-catching bandstand, a water fountain, hectares of green lawn and beautiful flowers, an unusual orbital monument and an old iron bridge, which gives access to the courthouse. Well worth a trip – weather permitting!

Reginalds Tower

Reginalds Tower, situated in the heart of the city, is an ideal backdrop for wedding photos and wedding videos with a difference. Should you wish to have photographs taken inside or on the roof, please ensure you have organised this in advance and obtained any permissions required.

Planning a Spring Wedding with the Weather in Mind

Spring weddings are truly magical. Bright, cheerful colours and the budding leaves all present and ready to begin the New Year afresh, there couldn’t be a more enjoyable time of year to plan your nuptials. Here at Drangan Video, we’ve been part of a wealth of spring weddings throughout Ireland and can offer some invaluable tips on how to avoid potential pitfalls caused by the good old Irish weather.

Thanks to our years of experience shooting springtime wedding videos, we know without doubt that spring weddings are absolutely wonderful. However, we also know what that the weather can sometimes make for some very unexpected situations!

In this article we will talk you through some potential weather conditions and how you can work around them on your big day.

1. Rain on your Wedding Day

The rain is unfortunately an issue in spring for us here in Ireland, but isn’t every other season? What we generally experience in Spring is weather that fluctuates quite a bit, you know those wonderful days where the sun us shining one moment and within the blink of an eye you are running for cover from the rain? Don’t worry; the rain needn’t put a dampener on your big day if you are well prepared and ready for all weather.

Brides and Grooms should ensure that they have a nice, warm, protective coat that can be easily worn over a dress or suit. Umbrellas should be given to each member of the wedding party to ensure no one is caught in an unexpected downpour. If you plan to hold your spring wedding mostly outdoors, then make sure that you rent or purchase strong coverage; canopies for example, for yourself and your guests.

2. Temperature Changes

During the spring months, the rain isn’t the only temperamental element you have to deal with. The temperature can be temperamental too, but once again, with preparation and forward thinking this needn’t be an issue for you and your wedding guests.

Brides, Grooms and wedding guests can often find that in the spring months the daytime temperatures can be pleasantly warm and then turn quite cold once the sun goes down. Perhaps consider checking the forecast a few days in advance and sending out messages to your guests advising on appropriate extra clothing to bring with them.

3. The Mud

With springtime weddings, there tends to be quite a lot more rain than experienced in the summer months and unfortunately this can make the mud a little more of an issue. This is of course, only the case for outdoor weddings, or those where guests need to walk some distance from venue to venue. If your wedding involves an outdoor setting then you should be aware that it could very easily cause damage and stains to wedding attire.

This is why it is important to have an emergency wedding kit on hand at all times. The maid of honour or mother of the bride can carry this in their handbag and will be equipped for all events that may occur. The kit should include a stain removal stick, and also some plastic bags that the bride can step into to keep her shoes clean.

If you are planning a wedding this spring, preparation is key to ensuring the weather doesn’t scupper your big day. With all that said, we all know that regardless of the weather there is nothing on this earth that can influence how happy you are on your wedding day. I have been at many weddings where we experienced, rain, hail, thunder, lightning and sun and not one of these elements made a difference to how enjoyable the day was for either the Bride and Groom or their families and guests!

If you would like to book Drangan Video for your spring wedding, please feel free to get in touch with us at any time and we will be happy to provide you with a package to suit your budget.
