2007 and was beginning to feel its age, so after consulting with our account a decision was made to trade up to a new van and benefit from some tax relief on the video business. The new logo takes a little bit of getting used to, but its modern and fresh looking. It has been another busy weekend with wedding videos in Connahy, Kilkenny, Tinryland in Carlow and a local wedding video in Clonmel. Friday was a lovely sunny day for the wedding of Aisling Fitzpatrick & J. P. Blanchfield who were married in Connahy, Kilkenny, the reception was in the Ormonde Hotel Kilkenny, we stopped off at Butler House in Kilkenny for some photos and video footage it was nice working with Michelle Dixon once again a lovely easygoing lady and a joy to work with. J.P. & Aisling are heading back to Austraila in the near future, but are hoping to return to Ireland at some stage.
My wedding in Tinryland on Saturday was that of Caroline Byrne & James Dunne who were also home from Australia to celebrate their special day, by coincidence the wedding reception was also in the Ormonde Hotel In Kilkenny. The weather on Saturday was appalling it just rained all day, but Caroline & James could not care less they just settled to the fact that the rain was down for the day and that there was nothing that could be done about it. What a wonderful attitude they never stopped smiling all day it was a very enjoyable day and great fun. Thomas Sunderland was the photographer our pats have not crossed for a couple of years but I had two Weddings In Kilkenny with him already this year, he is a true professional and we always have a good laugh which makes the day very enjoyable, the message from this wedding is forget about the weather and just enjoy your wedding day come rain or shine.
On Sunday it was a local wedding video in Clonmel, Michelle Kennedy & Tommy Keane, the ceremony was in St. Patrick’s Church Marlfield Clonmel and was celebrated by Barbara
Fryday it was a lovely meaningful ceremony and some words of wisdom from the celebrant. I have recorded many weddings in Marlfield Church it is a truely beautiful setting for a wedding. Built with a grant from the Board of First Fruits this church occupies the site of an earlier eighteenth-century church and the now-destroyed twelfth-century Cistercian Abbey of Inishlounaght. The church was designed by Thomas Tinsley, father of the famous architect William Tinsley. The simple form of the building is enlivened by the attention to detailing, in such features as the decorative window tracery, red brick eaves course and the buttresses with their gabled tops. The Romanesque doorway incorporated into the west wall of the interior is a particularly striking feature, and is the best surviving evidence for the ancient abbey. This, along with the medieval grave-slab to the church interior and that in the graveyard wall, the latter thought locally to be from a crusader’s grave, adds archaeological and historical interest to the site. The church forms part of a group of related structures associated with Marlfield House demesne. Michelle & Tommy enjoyed a fab wedding reception in Kilcoran Lodge, Cahir Co. Tipperary, I always find the staff in Kilcoran to be most helpful and friendly it has always been a popular wedding reception in Tipperary.
Wishing all three couples all the very best, I am looking forward to producing their wedding DVDS in the near future.
More news soon.
