Merry Christmas from Abbey Video Productions

brides in tipperaryWell, it’s that time of year again, when I look back and say a big thank you to all my customers and to my friends the wedding suppliers we have met throughout the year, and of course to the hotels that have looked after us and feed us along the way. It’s been a great year for weddings, along with other video work. This time of the year, it’s school show after school show most nights of the week! Cashel, Tipperary Town, Clonmel schools, shows in Kilkenny of course and a few in Waterford. It’s great to see the pupils perform, both for the camera and for their teachers and parents. Each year, it’s great to get the phone call or the e-mail opening with “Please, Joe, tell us you’re free to video our show again this year. The parents and the children are still raving about last year’s production you captured for us!” Below is just a little Christmas jingle I uploaded..

Abbey Video won The Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards 2016

Well done to Abbey Video Productions The Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards 2016 winner!    

brides_choice_awards_winner_fb_profile_360x360_2016Last Wednesday evening I got word that I had won the Mrs2Be brides choice awards for wedding Videography in Ireland!

The Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards were launched in 2014. The awards are the first and only Irish wedding industry awards that are based on a detailed review process involving each entrant’s previous customers. Entrants are judged on a range of criteria including professionalism and quality. Entrants are judged primarily via a review system involving previous couples who have recently used their service. These reviews are independently verified and cross-referenced to ensure credibility.

 

I was nominated last year and was honoured to become a finalist. This year I was nominated by a couple whose wedding I filmed early in 2015 and I progressed once again to the finals, but this time I went all the way and won!  It’s a nervous wait to see how things go with the judges and of course how the couples vote.  But as I always say, every wedding video I complete is a winner for me – when I get an e-mail, text, Facebook review or a phone call to say how delighted a couple are with their wedding DVD, well I just won all over again!

 

wedding video tipperary  abbey videoWedding videography can be a strange business sometimes, no two couples have the same taste in filming or the music they pick for the final product.   Over the years I have seen the way weddings are delivered – these times of course it’s DVD and also flash drives are making their way on stream.  But I have always kept up-to-date with all the latest technology, including the new Sony cams, the very best in software, computers, and of course my own creative and unique way of filming weddings all wrapped into a professional, affordable and unobtrusive style.  And by the looks of things it’s working both for the couple and for me, so happy days there!

It’s time to get ready for this week’s weddings – some more fantastic couples to meet, new places, new faces, and hopefully more referrals, that’s how my business works best.  It also helps that my website is at the top of google for wedding video in Tipperary, along with Kilkenny and Carlow – I love SEO and how Google works behind the scenes, and by the looks of things it has paid off again!  Thank you to all my 2105 couples that took the time to vote for us. ~ Joe & Breda

Tipperary Hotels for your wedding

DSC08130This week’s article is about a great hotel for your wedding day in Tipperary.

Over the years filming wedding videos I have come across some fabulous hotels and this week is all about  the Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh, Co Tipperary.

The Great National Abbey Court Hotel is one of Ireland’s landmark 3* hotels, located in Nenagh, a town bursting with life and steeped in history.

From the moment you step inside the Great National Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh you’ll find Irish hospitality, professionalism and individual service only matched by a breath-taking array of business and leisure facilities. The hotel is one of the finest Wedding Venues in Tipperary and also boasts top class Conference facilities. This is all wrapped up in the hotel’s quirky features: from an oasis that is the Great National Abbey Court’s extensive gardens to family friendly facilities that are the envy of hotels nationwide.

As a videographer I get to see how things operate on a wedding day behind the scenes so to speak!  When I arrive to the Abbey Court on the day of a wedding I am greeted by Ray, the Deputy Manager, and right away Ray will fill me in on the proceedings of the evening while we await the arrival of the bride and groom.  At this point guests are enjoying a fantastic selection of sandwiches, mouth-watering scones and of course the life-saver: tea & coffee! I must say the food for the guests as they arrive sometimes after a long drive is very welcome and appetising!

When the newly married couple arrive Ray is on hand to greet them with red carpet and champagne.  From here the couple are lead in to the hotel to mingle with their guests and at this point it’s my chance to get some great footage of the couple chatting and relaxing with their guests.  Soon after this their photographer will take the couple to the fabulous gardens the Abbey Court has on offer for some family and friends photographs. I also get some quality fly-on-the-wall footage at this point.

It’s then time for me to go to the wedding reception room to film the little details the couple might have placed on tables etc.  The room layout is always impeccable – clean, well laid out, with fantastic mood lighting and not a saucer  out of place!

Time to call in the guests!  The Abbey Court makes sure no one is waiting for their meal as the bell is rang in good time – this is a sign of a well ran hotel with a great team.  The couple are applauded into the room with their favourite piece of music which can be great fun.  Ray is on the ball when it comes to wedding suppliers, especially videographers – he makes sure we are tuned into the hotel system so our audio is 100% for the speeches and also makes sure we are present at the important times, he will come looking for us!

I hope my small article on this great hotel has done it justice.  Of course The Abbey Court is there for a lot more use than just weddings, I’m told it’s a fantastic hotel to stay in and I know from experience that the food is top class. And the staff?   Well I will put it simply … 100% award winning team!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my visits to the Abbey Court, and if you are planning on getting married in this great hotel and would like to see a sample of a wedding I have filmed there please get in touch.
