Kilkenny city is one of the most popular wedding destinations in Ireland it has so much to offer, wedding venues to numerous to mention which are complemented by beautiful historical attractions and an abundance of scenic wedding photo locations through out the county. Here at Drangan Video our bookings for weddings in KIlkenny are very strong for the next two years as more and more Brides say yes to a professional wedding videographer. Rachel and Ian are one such couple !! here is a clip from their wedding DVD.
The story begins with the all exciting bridal preps which took place in Callan which is sometimes described as a satellite town to Kilkenny. Rachel is the third member of the Dalton family to avail of my videographer services, thanks to Siobhaun and Gemma for the referral to baby sister Rachel.
There is nothing more enjoyable than a visit to the house in the morning for bridal preps everyone in high spirits the mood is infectious, it never fails in giving me a happy mood boost. After getting the usual fun shots on camera I headed for Kilkenny city to get set up for the ceremony.
The wedding ceremony took place in St. John’s Church opposite McDonnagh Junction is just one of many magnificent wedding ceremony venues in Kilkenny City, it was built 1903 on the site of an earlier church, relatively new. Fr. Willie Purcell is popular wedding celebrant and well known for his somewhat light hearted style of wedding mass. Ian and the boys arrived in good time and were pretty relaxed, “not a bother on them”.
Butler House Kilkenny City :
After the ceremony we visited Butler House for the photo session with the bridal party. Butler House is a beautiful location for wedding video and photo shoots it offers the best of both worlds. Through the rear door you are on Patrick Street which is only a short step from the central hub and commercial center of the city where you will find an array of shops bars and restaurants.
We headed out the front door which took us to the internationally renowned Butler House Walled Gardens which are an ideal location for capturing stunning wedding video footage.
Our final destination was Hotel Kilkenny for the wedding reception, Rachel & Ian the new Mr & Mrs Goodman were in the mood for celebrating and what better venue than Hotel Kilkenny.
Upon entering Hotel Kilkenny you immediately feel the wonderful warm atmosphere which is a credit to the Griffin Group of Hotels. Rachel & Ian enjoyed a lively wedding reception in the Skyline Suite which can cater for up to 400 guests. There is a fantastic view of Kilkenny City from the skyline, the city lights provided a wonderful backdrop for the late night celebrations.
Rachel & Ian are a lovely couple, it was a pleasure to have been their wedding videographer, for me I felt more like a guest than a wedding supplier. This wedding video clip has already been shared on facebook and is receiving glowing reviews from family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by, more wedding news next week.
