Bathroom Baskets for your Wedding Venue

If you are in the process of planning your wedding day there are  certain things that  you will like to know, and  there are  many things that you will need to know.
In my role as a  wedding videographer I am lucky to attend my fair share of weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford  and many other counties. From speaking to couples all over the length and breath of Ireland  I have picked up lots of tips about wedding planning.

Is your  wedding day  all about you ?  broadly speaking the answer is yes but if you’ve been a guest at a wedding you’ll realize  the importance  of looking after your wedding guests and making it a memorable day for them also.
You’ve invited all your friends and relations  to be part of the most important  day of your life, so you want to make sure they have a day to remember also.  Here is one way  of making your guests happy on your big day

Wedding Bathroom Basket

Bathroom Baskets for your Wedding Venue – what to include :

Over the past ten years there has without doubt, been an increased focus on guests requirements when planning for the big day. We now rarely attend any weddings that do not cater for their guests with little extras that make the day so much more comfortable for all attending. With this in mind we have compiled a checklist of little extras you can put together for your family and friends. These hampers can be left in the gents and ladies bathrooms, and should be checked on by venue staff throughout the night to make sure stocks are replenished as needed.

Ladies Bathroom Basket for your Wedding

In the ladies bathroom basket or hamper, there should be a whole range of possibilities for your guests to choose from. In this article we are going to list some of the more popular options and advise on some little extras that you won’t see anywhere else.

Toiletries
On a day when all the ladies in your company will want to be looking their very best, toiletries are a must-have at all times of the day. Your bathroom basket should include some if not all of the following:

Wet wipes
Dry shampoo
Toothpaste and disposable toothbrushes
Perfume
Deodorant
Cotton buds
Tissues
Feminine products

Hair care products

Whilst many women will have had their hair done professionally that morning, it is important to supply some backup products for later on in the festivities when the original hairstyles may be starting to wane.

Hair brushes / combs
Hair Spray
Bobby pins
Hair ties
Helpful Extras
Your female guests will truly appreciate any extras you include that make them feel comfortable at all hours of the day or night. Check out our list below of thoughtful extras that will have your guests singing your praises.

Flip-flops or slippers
Plasters
Party Feet
Clear nail varnish
Vaseline
Lint rollers
Safety pins
Mints
Scissors
Product samples to take away

For the Men

Most of the products listed above can also be included in the bathroom baskets you provide for the gents toilets. Make sure you include these extras to ensure the men are just as well looked after as the women throughout your celebrations.

Plasters
Safety Pins
Deodorant
Cologne
Hair gel / wax
Lint Brush
Mouthwash
Men’s flip-flops

If you are having a child-free wedding reception you can also include some more risqué items such as Rennies, aspirin or mini liquors. For those of you who will have children attending the venue, please make sure you omit anything that can be harmful to or inappropriate for a child from your wedding baskets. Little hands are happy to pick up anything that isn’t nailed down, so this should be an important consideration when planning your baskets.

Cheerful Colorful Winter Wedding In Kilkenny City

Weddings in Kilkenny are now  an all year round occurrence , gone are the days when a winter wedding was considered to be an out of season event.
Here at Drangan Video our winter wedding bookings have soared to an al-time hight with Kilkenny been our most frequent   location. The following wedding film highlights are that of Nicola and John who were married in St. John’s Church on January 5th 2017.

Nicola and John’s Wedding Story

The story begins with the bridal preps at Nicola’s house situated on Old Golf Links Road in Kilkenny, when I arrived the preparations were in full swing. The very talented Ross Costigan was the photographer he was already there when I arrived, I love working with Ross its fair to say that some of my best films were shot while working  with him, he has an amazing talent for wedding photography. Nicola and John’s wedding video  is  a typical no nonsense  production, it features lots of natural shots which were discreetly recorded  while adapting  a hands off approach.

Kilkenny Bride and Groom

St. John’s Church Kilkenny 200th anniversary

St. John’s Church   celebrated  its 200th anniversary on My 12th 2017 the Bishop of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory, the Right Rev Michael Burrows conducted the the historic ceremony.
Nicola and John have now entered the history records of St. Johns Church just like scores of other Kilkenny couples dating back 200 years, Fr. Sean O’ Connor was the wedding celebrant  he is a lovely guy to work with just so nice and pleasant, putting a slightly nervous Bride and Groom at ease.

Rothe House Museum and Gardens

Situated in the centre of Kilkenny Rothe House and Garden is the ideal stopp off location for a wedding photo shoot,  it was built between 1594 and 1610 and  was the home of the renowned merchant, landowner and Mayor of Kilkenny City, John Rothe Fitz Piers.
Nicola and John enjoyed some time away  from their busy day to relax with the bridal party and get the photo shoot over and done with, the ever beautiful surroundings of Rothe House provided an interesting backdrop for their  wedding film.

Kilkenny Wedding

langton House Hotel Kilkenny

Any couple who have had their wedding reception in Langtons will comment on the  absolute Top Class performance by Sean and the staff. The decoration of the room itself is always superbly and tastefully  crafted, everything about langtons spells a quality wedding reception location.
Nicola and John decided to have the speeches before the meal, getting them out of the way allowed the speakers lots of time to enjoy a tasty wedding dinner.

I hope you liked Nicola and Johns wedding video highlights, they are delighted with their DVDS, this clip  has already been shared on facebook and twitter.

Wedding Video In Ballyragget

Vicki and Seamie were married in Ballyragget Kilkenny, I am very proud to be sharing this fab highlights clip from their wedding video.
Once again I had ventured over the Tipperary Kilkenny border to shoot yet another  wedding video in Kilkenny

Ballyragget is a small town in Kilkenny, it is situated on the banks the river Nore in north Kilkenny.

The video begins on the outskirts of Ballyragget with coverage of Vicki and the girls preparing for the happiest day of Vickie’s life, she is finally about to become Mrs Vickie Corrigan.

St. Patrick’s Church  stands proud in the centre of Ballyragget in an area locally know as chapel lane, it is a lovely setting for a wedding ceremony.

Vickie and Seamie enjoyed a nice relaxed wedding ceremony which was  celebrated by Fr. Tommy Murphy.

Vickie and Seamie at Butler House

We stopped off at Butler House Kilkenny for the photos and  video coverage, the garden and interior of the house are a wedding videographers  paradise.  The interior consists  of  a number of magnificent reception rooms, with high ceilings and impressive bay windows. The perfectly maintained  walled garden is ideal for wedding photos, Kilkenny Castle provided a beautiful backdrop for Vicke and Seamie’s photo call.

Langton House Hotel is one the best wedding venues in the south east, my own daughter had her wedding reception in Langtons in 2013, so I am probably been somewhat  bias in stating that Langtons is my favourite wedding venue in Kilkenny

I really enjoyed working with Vickie and Seamie on the day, they were a dream couple, just so relaxed down to earth  and easygoing, they are very happy with their wedding film.
