The Cork village of Shangarry is situated on the south coast of Ireland and is best known as home of the world famious Ballymaloe Cookery School, happy local couple Tracey & Jason certainly had something cooking for family and friends at the near by Middleton Park Hotel to celebrate their wedding reception
As a busy wedding videographer I have the pleasure of recording weddings in many parts of Ireland especially throughout Munster, at the moment weddings in Cork are at an all time high, my wedding video bookings are very steady in and around Cork City and County.
Tracey and Jason’s Wedding Video Highlights :
As I made my way to Tracey’s house for the bridal preps cloulds were gathering and a spattering of rain was imminent, but after all it is still only February the summer is just around the corner. On arrival at the house I received a great warm cork welcome with tea and a bite to eat on offer. Tracey and her bridesmaids were having fun and really enjoying the preparations, this is one happy bride who was intent on enjoying her big day hail, rain or shine.
After a lovely wedding ceremony in Shanagarry Church we made our way to Middleton Park Hotel by which time the rain cloulds had vanised and the sun was shining, Tracey had booked me for the Gold Package which covers from bridal preps up and including the first dance. The Middleton Park Hotel is a popular Cork wedding venue, the staff are more than helpful, and very efficient.
Tracey and Jason are very happy with their wedding DVD, the highlights have already been shared on my Drangan Video Facebook page and has received some nice comments. In the next few chapters we take a look at the importance of a well shot Wedding Video.
The importance of a well shot wedding video
Traditionally, wedding photographs have always been a must have for the budding bride and groom, however, here at Drangan Video we have seen a huge surge over the last decade in wedding videography. Of course, we would never suggest that photographs should make way for video, we believe there is a special place for both services at everyones wedding. What we love about a well-shot wedding video is that is remains a keepsake for all time and for generations into the future. A professional wedding video will see you through the good times and the hard times and can be viewed at times when you truly need a lift and a smile.
On a romantic and perhaps sentimental note, video can capture so much more than still photography. One of the shots best captured on video for all time and becoming increasingly more popular is ‘the first look’. This is a shot taken from the bride’s point of view when she is walking down the aisle, the video captures the moments when the organ starts to play and the bride and her companion take their first steps down the aisle. The climax of this shot is when the groom turns around and sees his beautiful bride for the very first time – a moment that can now be treasured forever thanks to high quality, professional videography.
As already stated, video will capture an amazing event, full of emotion and happiness, with family and friends. Such a event with everyone gathered may not happen again in your lifetime. Some may be missed as it is watched in later years, and the video can be an endearing memory and record of your shared time. With a great wedding video you will always remember each of your guests! What what other medium allows you to put a soundtrack of your choosing to such an emotive and energetic montage.
Feel free to give us a call here at Drangan Video or get in touch with us via our very sociable Facebook page. We are always on have to provide expert advice on why a well-shot wedding video is most important to your big day.
Lastly and most importantly I would like to add a little something. After the wedding day has passed and you venture into your life together, years after the kids are already starting secondary school, college or kindergarten, when money worries, stress and exhaustion get you down, pull out your wedding video and the reminder of that day will hold you in good feeling. You will for sure shed tears of joy and sadness, you will feel you have come a long way since that day, you will think back and wonder where the time go to? You will remember each other with reckless abandon as a song you haven’t danced to in years will play on the morning radio, your hearts will beat faster and your feet will find the dance-floor…… you really cant get the same feeling from a photograph!
