Editing and Behind the scenes at Abbey Video.

If you have read my previous posts, you’ll know that I am a very well established wedding videographer working throughout Tipperary and Munster. If this is your first time visiting my blog, hello and welcome!

Well, this is a blog post I have been dying to share, as now I want to tell you all about editing and my recent investment to ensure I can produce the finest wedding videos in all of Munster. The actual filming of a wedding amounts to only half of the work involved in creating a beautiful wedding video. My wife and I will spend approximately two days editing your wedding video in order to create beautiful, synchronised footage.

I mentioned in an earlier post how I travelled to London for the annual BVE camera show, a large affair attended by industry experts from all over the world. At the show I purchased two new cameras, both are top of the range, full HD, small and compact, allowing me to float discreetly in and around the wedding party. I’m sure you’re wondering why I need two cameras. Well, on a very important day like your wedding day, I like to be prepared for the unexpected and have a back-up camera in the highly unlikely event that anything should go wrong. Along with the new cameras, I purchased something I’m very excited about – new class-leading editing software called Adobe Premier Creative Cloud 7.01. It has received rave reviews and is widely regarded by industry experts as the hottest, must-have for videographers.

Editing software is constantly evolving. As a wedding videographer and to survive in this competitive industry, it’s essential for me to stay at the top of my game. I purchased Adobe Premier alongside a monthly subscription so I will receive constant software updates as the software evolves.

I’ve spent a few weeks exploring the functionality and intricacies of this software and I am in agreement with the field experts. I’m very pleased with the wedding DVDs filmed in Tipperary recently. (Please play the video to see the results). This new software is my favourite to date. It boasts many new enhancements and additions on previous software from adobe, but I’ll try to only mention a few and not bore you with too much technical jargon! The real beauty of this software is it gives me, the videographer, even greater control and influence over the final finish. It gives me greater control over the audio as I can more accurately synchronize segments of footage. Synchronizing clips which have been filmed from different angles can be tricky, given that they have different sounds and noise levels. Adobe Premier allows me to analyse the noise volume and type of noise, so these clips can be joined and synchronized smoothly.

Adobe Premier has continued another great feature called Speed grade. With this I have enhanced control and can create and add special effects to your film to create different styles and finishes. I can make subtle changes to colour and tone. This is incredibly useful, when a wedding is filmed on a dull day, colours can be subtly enhanced to create the impression of a warmer, radiant day. This is a great feature, given the unpredictable nature of our Irish weather. Speed grade can also be used to create a very romantic and atmospheric ambiance by adding sepia or soft filters to soften the edges.

Should you come across a wedding video you find appealing because of a distinctive look or the way it has been stylised, chat to me about it and I’m confident I can achieve the same effect, or as could well be the case, it could be very similar to a wedding video I have already produced myself. The possible effects vary hugely, however I feel natural and gentle effects are the most suitably for a wedding video and DVD. At the end of the day it is all a matter of personal taste, which it should be in order to create a unique DVD, personal to you as a couple.

In order to create your unique wedding video, there are many aspects of the editing which will draw on your own creativity and choices, such as –

Do you want the entire speeches in the video or just highlights?

What type of graphics would you like to introduce the speakers or the celebrant?

What are your music choices?

Would you like segments of footage to be overlaid with music?

Are there segments you would like to see in slow motion?

Would you like a photo montage towards the end to include everyone who was involved on the day?

So there you have it. There is lots of fun editing for me and lots to think about for you. Do have fun when deciding what type of wedding DVD you envisage for yourselves. I am here to discuss the options, help with decisions and make suggestions about what I think will work best.

With your ideas and my expertise, together we can create a wonderful and unique wedding DVD to remember your wedding day.

If you have any questions at all, please get in touch or we can meet for a chat to discuss your ideas. I’m based in Cashel, Co. Tipperary.

Why do you need a videographer?

What is the most common thing you hear people say at the end of their wedding day? I can remember saying it at the end of my own wedding day.

‘I can’t believe it’s all over’.

At almost every wedding I have filmed within Tipperary and Munster, towards the end of the day, I have overheard the bride or groom mutter something along the lines of ‘I can’t believe the day has gone by so fast’. I’m sorry to say it, but it’s true. On your wedding day you will be so busy having fun and mingling with your friends and guests whom you haven’t seen for a long time, that the day will absolutely fly. You will be in high demand and everyone will want to speak with you and wish you well. Of course, you will not need to worry about me, I will quietly go about my business while you enjoy a great day.

Now, I want you to think of the months and months of careful planning and effort that go into planning your wedding day. Think of how long it is taking to plan your guest list, how long it takes to choose your wedding dress. What type of flowers are you having in the church? Are you having wedding favours or donating to charity? Are the flower girls having fresh flowers in their hair? Think about the huge amount of time and effort you are putting into the preparations and the finer details.

If you really want to cherish and relive all of these memories as vividly as possible, the best way to do so is by having a videographer present on the day. It is a shame to risk forgetting all the finer details, a reflection of your joint efforts, passion and creativity.

Having a videographer at your wedding will also give you an opportunity to witness moments when you were not present and can answer questions about how others were feeling that day.

Such as ‘How was the groom before I arrived at the church? Was he as nervous as me?’

What was the atmosphere like at the church before I arrived?’

‘How was the father of the bride on the morning of the wedding?’

The atmosphere in the bride’s home, the morning of the wedding can be incredibly exciting and can only be captured by a videographer. I’m sure you’ll agree if you have experienced it before. I feel humbled to be able to share and recreate the mood of that morning – sheer excitement and nerves before the big event. Another favourite moment I will never tire of filming, is the expression on the grooms face when he sees his bride for the first time as she enters the church. Equally brilliant is the moment when the bride and groom walk down the aisle hand in hand, with a look of pure exhilaration and relief that the difficult part is over and now they can relax a little and enjoy the rest of the day. There are so many wonderful moments worth catching to be seen again and again.

As you may well know, I have been dedicated to this industry for some time, (for twenty years in fact!) I have filmed weddings in Tipperary and beyond, and in those years I have developed a keen sense of what is important. I appreciate which crucial moments from the ceremony really need to be filmed, I know how to best record the finer details. I know when a big, fat close up is needed and when to hang back to observe the crowd; and most importantly of all, because of my years in training, I can put all of this into practice to create an artistic and beautifully flowing wedding DVD.

Your Wedding Day

I take delight in sharing and witnessing these beautiful moments. For me, to capture these moments for the couple to enjoy again and again, really is the icing on the cake! That’s why I love my job.

Location, Location, Location.

Location, Location, Location.

As a Tipperary native, I have a special appreciation for our rich heritage and countryside. On our very doorstep we are spoiled with many exquisite wedding venues situated in stunning locations. Cashel Palace and Aherlow House Hotel immediately spring to mind, due to their beautiful gardens and panoramic views. Here in Tipperary there are a wealth of options to suit different budgets and tastes, whether it is modern or traditional. Some venues are perfect for small, intimate gatherings and others cater for larger numbers and more elaborate affairs. I mentioned in an earlier post, how this list keeps growing – more and more venues have attained their license enabling them to hold civil ceremonies and civil partnerships which I have also had the pleasure of filming during the winter season.

Often, I find the bride and groom do not need to travel to another location for their video and DVD. They simply need to step outside. This struck me recently as I arrived to film a wedding at Holycross Abbey. It was a bright, crisp morning, a little colour was coming into the trees and I paused to appreciate the beauty of the Abbey. The Abbey’s vibrant history, careful restoration and beautiful location on the river Suir, combine in perfect harmony to create an idyllic backdrop for the perfect wedding.

 

The Abbey was founded in 1168 for the Benedictine order and later transferred to the Cistercians. It takes its name from the Relic of the true cross, brought to Ireland around 1233 by Plantagenet Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, wife of Henry II. For 800 years pilgrims travelled from all over Europe to visit the beautiful relic which was set in gold and decorated with precious stones. Most of the Abbey’s buildings date from the 15thCentury, however parts of the nave – the main body of the church, belong to the original structure built in the late 12th Century.

Over the years, I have filmed manyweddings at Holycross. From a videographer’s perspective and in terms of creating great footage, this location has it all. I can appreciate its layout and the best spots for capture the guests unwinding once ceremony has ended. I know where I can best position myself to become inconspicuous to the bride and groom, and capture moments without anyone sensing my presence, which helps them relax and therefore creates naturally great footage.

On the morning of the wedding, when I begin filming, the bride may feel a little tense and worry about acting naturally, but after a few minutes, she often doesn’t realise I’m there at all! This is something I have a natural sense for and a skill I have fine-tuned through years of experience. Before a wedding, I will often travel to the location and get a feel for the layout and imagine how the crowd will fill the room and the grounds, and which areas will give great uninterrupted footage. However, at this stage I have filmed nearly every location throughout Tipperary and a great number throughout Munster so much of this comes naturally to me.

During my winter season, which was busier than usual, I worked with fabulous young couples to create wedding videos as unique as they are. This time of year is always the most exciting. A busy spring season awaits, when everything is refreshed and renewed, and I look forward to all that it will bring. Every spring, young couples approach me with their new ideas, vibrant colours and music choices and how they want to create their perfect wedding DVD.

Bookings for spring and summer are coming in fast, and for Saturdays in particular, but I do have some remaining slots available and offer discounts for Wednesday and Thursdays to help keep your wedding within budget.

For more information or if you would like to meet for a chat about creating your unique wedding DVD please email me or call me any time. I’d love to hear from you. Before you do anything else, I urge you to view some of my samples. I guarantee you’ll be impressed!

Everything from flowers, cakes, dresses, videographers, photographers, and bands, but over 50% of these are based in Dublin. So if your from Tipperary Waterford Wexford and the likes these suppliers are going to charge you extra to have the honour of supplying you a service for your wedding. Have you ever checked out weddings on line, mrs2b and the likes? Ok they have great supplier sites but again over 50% of their advertisers are up the country and the few that need to advertise with them locally are well… pricey because they have to pay for that pleasure and that cost is factored into the price you get when you enquire for their service this is a fact!
