Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary we just love local weddings, every year we are fortunate to provide videography for so many weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny and many other counties , thanks to all the happy couples past and future that have said yes to us as their preferred choice of wedding videographer.
In this week’s blog news we are delighted to be featuring a very local wedding that of Catherine Maher and Tom Kennedy, the Maher family are our closest neighbours, just a 3 min drive from our studio in Drangan it was my shortest journey ever to a bridal preps location.
Catherine is the youngest and the only girl in a family of four, the photo that she is holding is that of her late Mum and Dad, it was a morning of mixed emotions for this beautiful young Bride to be. Catherine’s older brothers have always looked out for her, they pulled out all the stops for her big day on Saturday May 6th 2017 leaving no stone unturned in making it the happiest day of her life.
The Maher family were so friendly and welcoming, cups of tea, snacks and cakes were a slight distraction for the videographer. When the Bride was dressed and ready she stopped off at the old family farm house for photos with her brothers, Catherine has happy memories of the old homestead and her parents.
Drangan Village/ Drangan Video
When we set up our videography business one of the first tasks was choosing a company name for our new business venture, we decided to call it after our local village, we are proud to be keeping our small village on the map with our company brand name.
The church of the Immaculate Conception is situated smack bang in the middle of Drangan, the Archway Bar is only a two minute walk from the church so no prize given for figuring out where to find Tom and the boys, it was another nice opportunity to grab nice pre -ceremony footage for the wedding film
The wedding ceremony was celebrated by Fr. Tony Lambe, it was a nice ceremony Fr. Tony’s light hearted approach helped to keep the slightly nervous bride and groom calm a relaxed throughout, Andrea Ruth Houlihan provided the church music and singing, her amazing voice filled every corner of the crowed church. Tom is a proud follower of Tipperary Hurling he hails from Carrick On Suir and plays hurling with his local GAA club, Catherine and Tom now mr. and mrs. Kennedy were greeted by an archway of clattering hurls formed by Tom’s team mates , its always a moment worth capturing on video.
Edmund Rice Heritage Centre Callan Kilkenny
We stopped off the Edmund Rice Heritage Centre , Wescourt Callan, for the photo shoot with the bridal party.
Blessed Edmund Rice was the founder of the Christian Brothers and Presentation Brothers.
The thatched house at “Westcourt”, Callan, Co. Kilkenny in which Edmund was born is almost 300 years old. The perfectly preserved house consists of six rooms a kitchen, parlour, breakfast room and three bedrooms. The grounds surrounding the house are lovely for wedding video and photo shoots, we got some great video shots with Catherine and Tom, just natural relaxed footage of a couple very much in love and enjoying their first hours as husband and wife.
Hotel Kilkenny Wedding Venue
Hotel Kilkenny is one of my favourite wedding venues in Kilkenny, Catherine and Tom enjoyed a fab wedding reception in the upper level Skyline Suite.
Catherine and Tom were the ideal couple to work with, both so relaxed and easygoing they are delighted with their wedding video and the short edit highlights film.
