Over the years of filming wedding videos all over Ireland, trends come and go, from the Chocolate Fountain, the sweet cart and now, Light up Letters these letters can say anything you wish, from welcoming your guests to your wedding, to the all important word LOVE .For all couples, their wedding day is a unique and memorable occasion. No matter how many weddings they may go to as guests, no day will ever be as amazing as theirs.
However for guests, a lot of weddings that they go to can feel pretty similar and not that unique at all. Now on one hand, this isn’t really an issue for prenuptial couples to worry about as it’s their special day after all, but how can they help to make the day just as memorable for their guests as it is for them? At many Irish weddings these days as I have seen in areas like Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow and Waterford there is a growing trend of light up letters taking centre stage in the function room. and yes it look great!These dazzling displays are proving to be a wonderful addition to many weddings across Ireland and for videography companies like Wedding Videographers Kilkenny there are no problems capturing the magnificence of these lights and incorporating them into the wedding videos that I produce for happy couples.
The light up letters come in a range of sizes so for couples who are looking for a discreet display there are small options available which are ideal for the top table at the wedding meal. However for the bride and groom who really want to dazzle their guests, large light up letters which are ideal for placing at the front of the dance floor are being more commonly hired in many parts of Ireland, including Tipperary and Kilkenny.
These larger letters are approximately 5 ft tall so they’re certainly big enough to be easily seen but not so large that they become obtrusive.
For many brides and grooms it is understandable that they will want their wedding venue to be set up in advance without the need to make alterations during the day. However should they wish to then it’s not a big job as the light up letters are easily mobile due to their surprisingly light weight. They are also versatile and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use so they can be appreciated whatever the weather. If the bride and groom are looking for outdoor photographs at night with a stunning backdrop then these lights are ideal. Equally, if they want them moved from the edge of the dance floor during the evening to make more space then this is also easily done due to their lightweight construction.
The light up letters provide a stunning background scenery which guests will be queuing up to take photographs of and will remember long after the big day.Experienced videography professionals such as Wedding Videographers Kilkenny can seamlessly highlight the light up letters in their footage so that the bride and groom will have a permanent reminder of their special day that they can hold on to forever.So if you are planing your special day give me a call or drop me an e-mail and we can discuss your wedding video let tit be in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford Carlow or indeed any county in Ireland. http://ibride.com/vendors/810359/abbey-video-productions/
Hope my blog was someway helpful to you in your planing for that special day ~ Joe
I got some fantastic news early this morning when I was informed I had reached the finals of the Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards 2015 ( Recognising the best of the Irish wedding industry)! But as I said in an earlier blog it it’s not the winning for me … it would be nice, don’t get me wrong, but every wedding video I film whether it be in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow or any of the multitude of other locations I attend, I always give it 110%. Every bride and groom has different ideas for their wedding video, it may be the music they choose or the way they want it filmed – each couple is unique. So when i am booked for a wedding I put a lot of planning into it well before the day, this way from the bride’s house to the first dance I know what’s expected of me – after all, it’s their day. The guests arriving is a very important part of filming as this is something the bride only gets to see on DVD later. The music in the church, the service, the vows, the walk down the aisle as husband & wife – these are all key points. With regards to the music in the Church, I like to leave a wireless microphone or a professional voice recorder near the musicians to capture the audio 100%. Sound is just as important as picture, this is why I always use a wireless mic or voice recorder discreetly placed in the groom’s pocket to pick up the vows and this is removed right away outside the door after the ceremony. The greeting line is a great way to formally meet your guests after the wedding.The bride’s house is a great place to start filming, with all the make-up and the hair being done it can be great fun. It’s a part of the day the groom doesn’t get to see so it’s nice for him to be able to view this later on their finished wedding DVD. The groom’s house sometimes gets filmed but this all depends on timing on the day, as i like to be at the ceremony location one hour before it starts – this time is needed to film the location, the flowers and all the little details in the Church or room where the ceremony is taking place.
The photograph session is a fantastic opportunity for me to capture some great video footage. I don’t just film what the photographer is doing but more of a candid covering of the bridal party and their families if they are there as well. If not I will capture them at the hotel. I enjoy filming the guests discreetly in the hotel enjoying the drinks reception, this way i get a great chance to catch up with some late-comers! From there on I film the speeches, which lately tend to take place before the meal – it’s nice to relax and enjoy your meal once they are over and done with! The dancing is filmed discreetly with no light if possible or just a small light on the camera if I need it. Your wedding will end with a highlights chapter looking back over your day. We have often been complimented on our turn-around time – we try to have the finished product ready when the couple return from honeymoon. I have read and heard of other couples not receiving their wedding DVDs for months, this can happen where only one person is working on a project and gets snowed under.It doesn’t end there… now the hard work starts! The editing can take two days to to complete, but my wife Breda is a pro at this: various effects, titles, adding music, authoring and chaptering the final product, testing design sleeves for the covers of the boxes and the art work on the discs – it’s easy to see where two days goes here!
On a final note, getting back to the Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards 2015, I would like to wish all the Finalists the very best of luck.
