Fab Spring Wedding In Ballincollig Cork

The main advantage of been  a Tipperary based wedding videographer is  location, I am only one hour from  amazing wedding locations in Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Carlow. Its lovely to sit into my car after a long wedding shoot knowing that I will be home within the hour.
March 31st 2016 was a beautiful sunny day  spring was in the air, I was on my way to Ballincollig to film the wedding of Catherine and Paul, the following video clip are the highlights from their wedding video.

The locals who live in Ballincollig will refer to it as ” The Village” even though it would be classed as a town  this is a way of saying that they have retained their identity, folks in Ballincollig are very proud of their roots.  It is not known as tourist town but it has allot to offer for instance the Regional Park is one of the largest Industrial Sites in Ireland.
When I arrived at Catherine’s parents house, the bridal preps were in full swing the girls were in a pretty relaxed mood, the bride was just about ready to get in to her dress, the big moment had finally arrived all the wedding planning was now history this is the day when the next history chapter commences.

The wedding Ceremony took place in St. Mary’s and St. Johns Church Ballincollig just a 10 minute drive for Catherine and her proud dad,that journey to the church is a very special and memorable time between a father and daughter, last journey with her dad as a single lady.
The Church of St Mary and St John is situated on Station road it  is the older of the two churchs in Ballincollig, it is a lovely setting for a wedding with lots of natural light coming through the large windows and loads of space for invisible wedding video recording.

Catherine and Paul enjoyed their big day, they are a lovely couple and were so easy to work with on the day, Paul is from Waterford and proud of his roots and a keen follower of all things GAA, he was hoping for an  all Ireland victory for the Deise sadly he will have to wail and see what next  next has to offer.

Wedding Video Memories : Karen And Brian Cork City

Hello and welcome once again to my Drangan Video blog page, in this week’s news feed I am happy to share a recent wedding video which was filmed in Cork City otherwise known as the capital of Munster. Karen & Brian were married in the North Cathedral Church  which is one the oldest and most beautiful wedding ceremony venues in Cork.

The wedding video story begins in Bawnleigh, Banduff on the ouskirts of Cork not far from Mayfield Business park, on arrival at Karen’s parent’s house i was greeting with a warm cork welcome by Karen’s mum & dad her dad David Harris is a well known wedding photographer covering weddings in and around cork city and county, some of the fab pics in this video clip were supplied by David “very proud dad”  the bridal preps were a lively affair Karen was a beautiful lively bubbly bride and even at this early stage in the day she  looked stunning.

North Cathedral Cork :

The Cathedral of Saint Mary and Saint Anne is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in Cork, Ireland. It is the seat of the Bishop of Cork and Ross, and the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cork and Ross, it is one of my favorite wedding ceremony venues in Cork  it is a magnificent setting for a truly memorable wedding day, for me as a wedding videographer it is perfect for discreet and unobtrusive wedding film capture.

Garryvoe Hotel and Wedding Venue :

After the wedding ceremony we headed for Garryvoe Hotel which overlooks beautiful Ballycotton Bay, the hotel is about 20 km from East Cork Golf and not far from Barryscourt Castle, where we stopped off for some photos and video footage, it was beautiful there the sun was beaming down on a very happy and fun wedding party.

As we head in to October, summer 20015 is becoming a distant memory  just like the months weddings come and go and some wedding suppliers might say that all weddings are the same, I totally disagree one thing for certain is that Cork weddings are special. Karen and Brian were your typical Cork couple, very friendly down to earth and great fun to work with, Karen was a very well organized bride everything went off without a glitch.

I have a number of cork wedding videos on my books over the comming months which Im really looking forward to Cork weddings are fab, congrats again to Karen & Brian.

Beautiful Scenic Wedding Video Locations In Cork

Here at Drangan Video, we have had a very busy summer and whilst the weather has been somewhat disappointing at times it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of our excited brides and grooms.

This summer has seen us spend time travelling the length and breadth of the country providing videography services for weddings in Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny, Dublin, Galway and Kerry to name but a few. So it’s hard to believe that we’re now facing into the latter half of the year and making plans for Christmas and New Year weddings already, where has the year gone!

Late last year we met with a number of couples who wed this summer in Cork, and asked our advice on the best places for wedding videos and photographs in the Cork region. We were extremely happy to oblige as we are very familiar with Cork County and City and have filmed many events and weddings there over the years. So for those of you who are planning a wedding in Cork and need some ideas for great locations to shoot a special wedding video, we hope you find this useful.

Colourful Magical December Wedding in Kinsale

This is one of my Pre-Christmas weddings, Rebecca and Ciaran were married in Kinsale, Cork  on December 19th 2014, the following video clip captures some of the magic of their Wedding Day.

My work began with the bridal preps which took place in Rebecca’s Parent’s house, just on the outskirts of the town of Kinsale, the wedding ceremony was set for 12:30 Pm, so it was an early start from here in Fethard Co. Tipperary I was on the road by 9:30 am it was a crisp sunny day hard to believe that Christmas Day was less than a week away.  Rebecca was a very well organized Bride  and was keeping a close eye on the time to avoid been late, she arrived at the Church of St. John the Baptist Kinsale exactly on time ” tumbs up for Rebecca”

Kinsale a Beautiful  Wedding Destination In Cork :

Kinsale is one of the most romantic towns in Ireland  it is the perfect wedding destination.  Kinsale has got everything that you could possibly need for celebrating a wedding to remember in Co. Cork.  The people in Kinsale do know a thing or two about how to make your wedding day magical and very special.

Kinsale town is situated between the hills and the shoreline, as you make your way along the narrow streets never far from the water it is like something from another age. After the ceremony the bridal party went on a walk about through the narrow streets and laneways, as we made our way to the reception venue I captured some delightful wedding film on the colourful busy streets.

The reception was at Actons Hotel which overlooks Kinsale Harbour, it is one of the oldest hotels in Kinsale. It underwent a substantional upgrade in 2012 and re-opened in March 2013, this was my first visit to Actons I was impressed with the high level of guest care and attention to detail, I also enjoyed a lovely snack in the bar when the guests sat down to their meal at 6:30pm.

Rebecca and Ciaran were the perfect couple to work with they were so happy on the day lots of smiles and some romance thrown in for good measure.  As a wedding videographer Im looking forward to many more such weddings in Kinsale and all over Cork better known as the home of the rebels.

Thanks for dropping by:

More next week
