The Importance Of Wedding Videos

Weddings are very expensive events its amazing how quickly the costs add up, so its easy to understand why so many brides ask whether they really need to hire a wedding videographer.  In this blog post I’m going to tell you all about the importance of having your big day captured on video, Unlike photographs, videos give you all  the sounds, action movie shots,  from the most memorable day in your life  keeping it on file forever more.  If you haven’t  made up your mind yet, here are a few  reasons why you should  consider having a wedding video after all.

Wedding Day Memories on Video

You are going to have lots picture memories from your wedding day, family and friends  will  be taking photos and video clips on their phones, more than  likely you are considering hiring a professional  wedding photographer. Most brides want to remember their wedding day and they want it captured professionally, so why not get those memories professionally and carefully filmed and edited into a beautiful wedding movie that you will cherish for many years to come. Another thing to consider is that videos take up considerably less room than printed photos, a full wedding film can be stored on a single usb drive or dvd disc. Video images are more interactive because you are able to see guests as they really were without been asked to pose for the camera on your big day. Friends that are living in other parts of the world  that you don’t get to see anymore or family that may not get to visit as often as everyone would like. Videos will capturing those special moments and can transport you back to that day in a magical way, unlike photos. They can let you hear your Parent’s laughter again or listen to your little ones laughter and games. Having these  memories on video are simply priceless.

 Wedding Videos for Generations To Come

Here’s another good reason to hire a wedding videographer, your kids. Maybe right now they are too small to appreciate the full meaning of your big day. Having a video of your wedding day to share with them when they are older would be magical , it could be described as reliving history. Think about how many times you have checked out your grandparents photos and old scratchy videos. You might think, look at what they were wearing back in those days or look at that old car how models have changed over the years. Having a wedding video is an easy way for you to be able to pass on your personalities and sound bites to your children and their children and maybe even their children’s children. Those little pieces of history will be really special to your family down the road when they are collecting pictures and old stuff out of the attic. Instead of just being a name written on paper you  become real again, especially to those that may not have ever gotten to know you. If you’ve ever researched your own family tree, you already know  how exciting it can be to find little things from those family members who lived long before us. Why not leave a wedding video for your family to find one day.

The importance of wedding videos: is the ability to  travel back in time and relive one of the best day of your lives with friends and family that may never get together the same way again.  Our memories fade as we grow older and having those memories close at hand on video with sound and voices just like they were, is a treasured  experience that you will be able to share for years and years. It helps to build a family history for future generations and beautiful  memories for yourself and your partner.  So if you are in two minds  on whether or not to get a wedding videographer for your special day, my advice to you is yes go for it,  Save yourself all those regrets and just hire a professional wedding videographer.

Micro Wedding Video In Kilkenny

Due to Covid  restrictions and the necessity of social distancing micro weddings have become a more popular choice for couples wishing to get married  under the current guidelines. Here at Drangan Video in Kilkenny & Tipperary  we are happy to embrace the new micro wedding trend, check out the following wedding highlights film.

Laura and Brian  Micro Wedding In Kilkenny

Laura and Brian had been planning their big day for mid summer 2020, they had been looking forward to having 200 guests, needless to say it was very disappointing having to postpone until  December with only a fraction of their original guest list celebrating with them on the new date.  They were able to hold on to most of their suppliers thankfully I was still on the list for December.

The new guest list included family and a few close friends the hotel was dropped in favor  of a home reception hosted  Laura’s parents in the family home. Video coverage began with coverage of the morning preps in the house, followed by a lovely ceremony in Folkstown Church on the Waterford road it is one of my favorite wedding ceremony venues in Kilkenny.

Wedding Photos In St. Kieran’s College

After a dry morning  the weather in the afternoon was not favorable for an outdoor photo shoot, laura & Brian got permission to have photos done in St. Kierans Collegue.  It is the oldest Catholic secondary school in Ireland, the building and grounds are the perfect location for wedding photo shoots, Shane O’ Neill from Aspect Photography captured amazing images in his usual easygoing no fuss style.

What Is A  Micro Wedding ?

Micro weddings are sometimes confused with elopements, an elopement is usually just the couple their witnesses and a celebrant.  Micro weddings are usually limited to 25 guests including the  Bride & Groom. The smaller number of guests creates  a more personal experience  for the entire day and provides more freedom to chat with guests. Micro weddings are so appealing they will certainly  be a popular choice for the foreseeable future.

A recent review from a Micro Wedding In Carlow

Couples really should consider a micro wedding, I think some people can get caught up in the party sometimes which is so not the most important part. Myself and Dónal just wanted to married and I’m sure we will have a party when everything is completely safe to do so. If someone would of told me I’d be getting married with 10 people there and having a reception in my family home with just our parents and that our wedding photos would be at our house, or that I would be doing my own hair and makeup and dancing our first dance in our sitting room with my doggies running around I would have laughed.  Instead I absolutely loved all of the above so much that I even completely forgot my bouquet ha ha.. typical me!! Eamon you  are honestly such a gentleman, can’t  wait to see the outcome of the video.
Thanks again Eamon

The hotel offers a choice of suites and can cater for weddings of all sizes up to 320 seated guests. The main ballroom has it’s own private garden which is ideal for weddings in the mid-summer and works perfectly for those who wish to extend the celebrations to the outdoors.
