Each year there are always one or two wedding videos that will stand out for been somewhat special or a little different, Charlotte and Martin’s WEDDING ON THE LAKE at Anna Carriga Estate, Killaloe Co. Clare was certainly one of those special and memorable weddings.
It was late September we were still enjoying an Indian summer I arrived at Garraunboy, Killaloe and as I made my way up the long driveway to Charlotte’s house surrounded by rolling hills and rich green Clare pastures it was a sight to behold, I remember thinking to myself ” this is going to be a great Wedding Video” I received a huge warm Clare welcome from Charlotte and her family from then I just blended into the background and got to capture some beautiful Wedding Video footage by a fly on the wall approach.
After spending an hour or or so covering the bridal preps it was time to make my way to Sacred Heart and St. Lua’s Church Garraunboy which stands on a cross roads over looking beautiful Killaloe. Martin and the boys arrived in good time all looking very smart but perhaps a little nervous, his beautiful Bride Charlotte arrived a customary 10 mins over time, which is very much the normal for weddings in Ireland. The ceremony was conducted by Fr. Pat Malone who is a family friend the happy couple were smiling through out it was a most relaxing marriage ceremony.
WEDDING ON THE LAKE : Killaloe is lovely busy village in east Clare very near the Tipperary border. The village sits on the banks of the river Shannon Ireland’s longest river, Killaloe is famous for its river cruse trips around Lough Derg. Charlotte and Martin and wedding guests boarded the the Spirit Of Killaloe for the 30 min river voyage to their wedding reception venue, I made my way by car to get video coverage of the boat arriving at the splended Anna Carriga Estate. The weather was just beautiful not a clould in the sky it was the ideal I was in a ” Wedding Videographers Paradise”.
As a wedding videographer in Clare its always exciting to return to Annacarriga for a truely memorable lakeside wedding video exsperience, each couple will enjoy single ownership of the Lakeside stunning glass Pavilion with a perfect view of the lake. The crystal clear waters of Lough Derg provide a stunning backdrop for creative film making.
