Documentary Style Wedding Videographer

Drangan Video has been producing documentary style wedding videos throughout Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork and all over Ireland since 2005. During my  career as a wedding videographer I’ve seen many  descriptions of videography styles been written and talked about  but none more  than documentary style wedding videos.

It’s a description that has been so misused,  it now gives out a confusing message or image of a videographer running around behind trees like a sniper, picking off close up head shots through a long lens, nothing could be further from the truth, is about an unobtrusive style of wedding videography which avoids directing the layout and timetable for the day allowing the couple and guests to enjoy themselves sometimes leaving bridal party and guests wondering if there was a videographer recording the day

Documentary wedding videograpy is often referred to as reportage style wedding films or a news journalist approach to capturing your wedding day footage. What ever terms are used they all refer to a totally unobtrusive approach to shooting a wedding video.  Here at Drangan Video we document every wedding  with the same hands off approach allowing you to relax and enjoy what will  be one of the most memorable days in your  life. Finding the right wedding videographer is very important, do loads of research and look at lots of sample videos and reviews.

Documentary style wedding videography captures natural genuine moments from an entire wedding day. If the wedding documentary approach has been truly mastered the finished wedding film will  look natural with bride, groom and guests totally unaware that they are been filmed.  As with any documentary style of videography the film should convey  the true story within the wedding day atmosphere. Documented wedding videos should be able to convey  what is happening in the scene without the need for any explanation or credits.

Weddings are the the perfect gig for documentary style videographers, the variety of emotions throughout  the day makes a wedding day very special , the morning preps, the pre-wedding ceremony nerves followed by post ceremony celebrations this may be followed by a tear or two  during the speeches,  an absent family member or close  friend mentioned, then the first dance, greetings from  guests on camera and the disco.

Producing a wedding film is all about creating a beautifully captured and  emotive collection of video clips that truly tell the story of your wedding day. A professional wedding videographer will produce an unobtrusive documentary film that will be looked at  throughout the years and will take you back to the best day of your life, just imagine reliving that special day with your children and friends time after time.
I always feel a great sene of pride when asked to document such  a special day, its not  just another wedding video its an honor to be part of their celebration. Its an emotional wedding film capturing all of those little things that often go unnoticed, those emotions and memories that are unique to each individual couple.

It’s an honor to know that so many couples in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow, Cork and Waterford choose me as their wedding videographer, placing  this responsibility in my hands is a  genuine honor. I’m lucky to earn my living producing very personal documentary wedding film collections.

A documentary wedding videographers work should always create an emotional and entertaining  reaction. The authenticity  that I try to reproduce in my video productions right across the wedding day coverage is worth so much more than a selection of fake set up shots

 Recap on what documentary wedding videography is

We are storytelling wedding videographers sharing the narrative of the day through a selection  of documentary style video clips each  wedding video clip needs to work on its own merit and show genuine captured moments, and not just a selection of posed set up shots. Individual video takes need to present subject  honestly, with authenticity and needless to mention  with no direction from the videographer.

The wedding film should show the viewer what is happening in the moment or the scene, It’s not just about being an unobtrusive wedding videographer there’s so much more to it than that. The focus is on storytelling, on creating an elegant,entraining documentary account of the best day of your life. Professional documentary style wedding videographers will source and capture footage that you didn’t see on the day and include it as part of your wedding day story.

Happy Wedding Day Memories In Mount Juliet

I am delighted and proud to be sharing the following wedding highlights video in this week’s blog post.
Tipperary Bride Anita and Kilkenny Groom David were married in Grangemockler church followed by a lavish reception in  Mount Juliet.

My day began with a visit to the Meagher homestead in Ninemilehouse   historically called Killcullen the small  Tipperary village  lies  on the border with  Kilkenny  as you pass through the  foothills of Slievenamon.
Anta’s house and farm overlooks the village from and elevated vantage point it was a beautiful setting for the beginning of what was a fab wedding day. It was a pleasure once again to be  working with Tanya of Eden Photography she is a much sought after wedding photographer throughout Kilkenny and Tipperary, we had great fun shooting the wedding preparations Anita was surrounded by her very attentive sisters who were prepared to spoil her with kindness for the day that’s  in it.

The Church

Grangemockler is a village in southeast  Tipperary,  is the home of the Grangemockler/Ballyneale GAA Club, the small church  is situated in the centre of the village, its a nice wedding ceremony venue just the right size for an average guest list of 200.
David and his groomsmen arrived in ample time to meet and greet their guests who were in no hurry  to move in from the beautiful August sunshine. The sound of car horns marked the arrival of the bridal party closely followed by Anita and her Dad Tony, any lingering guests quickly made the way into the already packed church.
Anita was a really cool Bride not a panic bone in her body, David was slightly nervous as he stood at the top of the aisle holding their little  daughter Aine, the emotion of that moment is nicely captured on Camera.

The Wedding Reception

Mount Juliet is  walled estate situated in Thomastown Kilkenny, it has some 1,500 acres of parkland providing a perfect location for a romantic wedding day celebration.
Driving through the gates of Mount Juliet and moving through the estate I noticed  golfers on perfectly manicured   greens, riders on handsome horses,  the Georgian mansion overlooking the River Nore came into view it was a sight to behold.
Anita and David enjoyed a warm recepton from friends and family , it was the perfect setting for capturing some amazing camera footage.

Happy Wedding Day Memories
