Scenic locations in Carlow for your Wedding Videos and Photographs

Each and every year for over a decade, the team here at Drangan Video have been lucky enough to travel to Carlow to provide videography services for some of the nicest couples we have ever met. Carlow town and county has a wealth of beautiful scenery and attractive locations that are simply perfect for photo-shoots and wedding videos. In this short article we are going to cover some of our favourite spots and would love to hear from any Carlow residents on their own personal favourites that we not be familiar with.

Altamont Gardens  for wedding videos in Carlow
1. Altamont Gardens

No matter what time of year you visit Altamont Gardens, there is always an amazing array of flora to feast your eyes on. This idyllic location is the perfect spot for some outdoor video shots and we’re sure your photographer will love the place just as much as we do.

2. Brownshill Dolmen

Fancy a short stop for a photograph with a difference or some beautifully lit wedding videography? Try the Brownshill Dolmen for a backdrop with a difference.

3. Huntington Castle

Situated just outside Clonegal, Huntington Castle is the perfect backdrop for those of you who want some real royal treatment on your big day. The castle and gardens are an impressive sight and will add something incredibly special to the ambience of your photographs and videos.

4. Duckett’s Grove

With recently renovated gardens and some spectacular landscaping, the castle at Duckett’s Grove is synonymous with Carlow’s love of history. An 18th century castle in all it’s glory with some of the most spectacular scenery in this part of the country, you would be mad not to head here for some wedding photo’s should you get the opportunity.

5. Oak Park Forest

If you fancy something a little bit off the beaten track, then we can wholly recommend a stroll through the Oak Park Forest. A most rustic background for your wedding videos and photographs. Probably best to take a trip there before the big day and scout out your favourite spots.

You will notice that most of the places we have listed above in Carlow are outdoor locations and that in part is why we love them so much. It has to be noted though that you should research some indoor alternatives in the event of bad weather.

Wedding Videographer Carlow

sharing a clip  from a wedding in Carlow which was shot on a beautiful sunny day during the long hot summer of 2014.  Christine & Eamonn were married in St. Patrick’s Church Rathvilly Carlow followed by their wedding reception in the Newpark Hotel Kilkenny, I have already shared the clip on Facebook and Christine & Eamonn have share it with all their friends on line.   Christine Lennon  Aww Eamon thank you so much we cannot wait to see the DVD. You were so professional throughout the day and worked at such ease with our photographer. We would recommend you highly as a videographer to any couple getting married

Christine and Eamonn were really nice to work with both easygoing and relaxed  the highlights clip shows just how much they enjoyed their big day, recording began with Christine and the girls getting ready in the family home which is only 10 mins from the village of Rathvilly, some Brides prefer not to have the bridal preps recorded which I think is a pity the build up to the day is always great on the wedding film and what better build up than early morning bridal preps.

After the ceremony Christine and Eamonn dropped into Lawlors Pub in Rathvilly  for a quick drink and fun photos, there is a lovely video shot of Christine pulling a pint of Guinness for a thirsty groom, it looked like a really good pint “well done Christine ”  our next stop was Jenkinstown Park for photos and video with the bridal party.  Thomas Sunderland was the wedding photographer for the day, it was nice to work with him I often meet him at weddings in Carlow and Kilkenny he is great  to work with he set up lots of fun shots which made everyone relaxed and in the mood for the photo session.   Jenkinstown Park  is just a 10min drive from Kilkenny City in the South East of Ireland, Jenkinstown Park was once part of a large estate. Today, the old house is long gone but remnants of 1870s parkland have survived, including rare Chinese Necklace Poplars. The facilities also include a picnic site, forest walks, deer park and a craft centre. A small garden to commemorate the Irish poet Thomas Moore , the park is popular spot for wedding photos and wedding videos it is regularly  frequented by Carlow Brides and brides in Kilkenny.

Christine and Eamonn  went for the Silver package which is one of five individual cost effective packages on offer from Drangan Vodeo, all my packages include coverage of the bridal preps in the morning and sharing on facebook is an included option. Thanks to Christine and Eamonn for choosing Drangan Video to record their special day.

Here are few more interesting wedding tips :    Hosting a home Wedding

If you are in the market for a wedding venue, hosting a wedding at a private home can offer numerous advantages.  First, there is the sentimental aspect of marking this momentous occasion at that holds memories  for you:  perhaps it’s your own back yard, or you or your partner’s childhood home or a vacation house where you spent your summers as a girl.  Next, there is the cost consideration for while you may still need to rent a tent and other elements, you can save big by eliminating a venue rental fee.

First, unless you are living in a Gatsby-esque mansion, chances are  you will need to use outdoor space for some or a portion of your wedding’s events.  Perhaps the ceremony, the reception or both. This will mean that a tent  will be required, it is better that you opt for a tent that is bigger than will be required. “First, your guests will appreciate not feeling cramped. But additionally, in case of poor weather, you will be thankful to have the extra space that is protected from the elements.  Remember that with many guests come many guest needs- especially of the biological variety. Rather than overwhelm your indoor restrooms,  supplementing the indoor restrooms might be a good idea.

 Speaking of guest comfort, “Don’t overlook lighting  walk around your property and any other areas your guests will have to access after the sun goes down. Plan on buying or renting various overhead and landscape lighting so that your guests can safely walk around the reception, to the bathrooms, and back to their mode transportation.”

I Have recorded many home weddings over the past couple of years, they were a huge success and very sentimental and intimate events.
