We’re not blowing our own trumpet here, but Ireland is one of THE most romantic destinations you can possibly imagine. Castles, loughs, folklore and scenery all combine to make Ireland the perfect choice for the most important day of your life.

Let’s take a look at some of the steps you will need to take to plan your Irish wedding.

Some of the legalities:
To marry in Ireland you must be at least 18 old.
Should you wish to marry in a church, this must be your first wedding.
Three months notice is required to be given to a registrar in person so you will have to make two trips.
A €200 fee will be required to obtain your marriage registration form from the registrar.
You will require passports and birth certificates.
For civil ceremonies / non-religious ceremonies for those who may be remarrying, you will require official documentation that supports your entitlement to remarry (divorce papers, dissolution papers or death certificates).

Getting married in a Church:
For those of you who wish to have a Catholic ceremony, you will need to ensure the following:

That you and your intended spouse are confirmed Catholics (exceptions may be granted, however this will need to be discussed with your chosen priest).

As well as the points listed in the previous section you will also need to provide a baptismal cert, confirmation cert and a letter of freedom from your current parish.

As with all Catholic marriages you will be required to undertake a marriage preparation course. Your chosen priest or a registrar will be happy to provide recommendations.

Planning the Wedding:
Once you have all the legalities in place, it’s truly time to start planning your dream Irish wedding.

Ireland has a wealth of wedding venues for you to choose from, whether you’re looking forward to a fairy tale castle or a lakeside retreat, you will find that your options are many.

Because you will be doing a lot of your planning from outside the country, we would highly recommend hiring the services of a professional wedding planner. A strong wedding planner will be able to organise everything from the entertainment and décor right through to transportation, beauty treatments and wedding videographer hire.

Christmas Wedding In Thurles

December 28th was a pleasant day, the sun was shining not a snowflake in sight it was difficult to believe that it was Christmas.
Laura and Thomas were blessed with the unseasonably mild dry weather, today I’m delighted to sharing  this beautiful highlight video of their special day.

Video coverage of the day began with  the ever popular bridal preps which took place at Laura’s parents house in Littleton, Thurles. I arrived at 11am which allowed ample time for generous coverage of the the excitement and fun that was unfolding before the video lens.

Thurles is  Tipperary’s “Cathedral Town”  and what better place to celebrate a Tipperary wedding than in The Cathedral of the Assumption Thurles.
As I dove through the gates the sun was shining brightly on the front of the Cathedral, wedding guest were in no panic about going indoors, in fact it looked and felt more like April than Christmas. Once inside the Cathedral there was no mistake about the time of year, beautiful Christmas candles and decorations added to the spender of Laura and Thomas’s  magical Christmas wedding day.

After the ceremony we stopped off at Holycross Abbey for wedding photos, it is a very special  place where you can walk in the footsteps of ancient Monks.  The beautiful 12 century Cistercian “Holycross Abbey” is a popular and much sough after wedding ceremony venue for weddings in Tipperary and surrounding counties.

It was a pleasure working with Tipperary based wedding photographer Colin Kenny  he is based in Fethard and covers weddings all over Tipperay, Kilkenny and Waterford
Colin’s Words: Photographic trends come and go, but my challenge is to deliver you images of timeless, beautiful storytelling that truly capture your day. It is my goal, that when you look back on your wedding day in years to come, you will be transported back to that special moment in time and the emotions of the day.  Colin Kenny Photographer

Thurles Couple Sarah & Mark Wedding Video Highlights

Here at Drangan Video we like to share as much of our work as  possible,  this  video highlights clip is that of Sarah & Mark  who were married in The Cathedral of the Assumption Thurles, Tipperary. It was a pleasure to have been the videographer for this happy  Bride & Groom.

Every good movie should have good  beginning and a happy ending, this video  certainly dose that, the clip begins  with  some sound bites from Sarah’s aunties including  kind words from a very proud Groom, you will have to look at the clip to enjoy the happy ending.

Thurles  Town  popular Wedding Location :

Thurles has a lot to offer as a wedding location it offers  a wide range of accommodation , there’s also a great selection of bars and cafes to choose from. The Source Arts Centre sits in the centre of the town it also hosts the public library it is well worth a visit.

Thurles Cathedral is one the finest wedding ceremony venues  in Ireland  it boosts two ornate side alters, eight tower bells, three Roman arched doorways and an organ dating back 1826. Sarah’s home is only a few minutes from the cathedral so  her choice of ceremony venue was a “no brainer decision”

As already stated every story should  have a beginning and an end, when it comes to producing wedding videos that tell a moving romantic  story  I would like to think that my style of production is well up there on that score.  Here at Drangan Video all camera work and  post production is carried out by just one person  namely Eamon.

 What is a  Personal  Wedding Video  Production :

I could never envisage going off to shoot a wedding  video and handing over the footage to someone else for editing & post production.  The secret of producing a  personal video story is to get a feeling for what is special and important to each individual couple.

For me as the camera man I like to pick up on those vibes. When I get home from each wedding my first task is to upload the day’s footage to a storage device for editing at a later stage, I attach a word document to the file reminding me of the important and personal moments from the day, this insures a truly individual and personal wedding story for each couple.

Sarah & Mark’s wedding video Story :

The video coverage begins with the bridal preps  excitement was running high, hair & makeup crew were hard at work putting the finishing touches on bridesmaids and bride.  Sarah and her mum have the perfect mother daughter relationship they were more  like best friends on the day, the video clip highlights that bond in the form of sound bites and insert edits.  Sarah & Mark were a pleasure to work with, they are really comfortable in each others company on the day, just chatting and having fun and not forgetting  a peck or two  on the cheek.

This video clip has already been shared on my Drangan Video Facebook Page :  Lovely comment from Sarah

Sarah KearneyOoooohhhh Wow!!!!!! Eamon you captured our day so perfectly you were a absolute gentleman, happy tears watching this clip can’t wait to get the DVDs “
