It’s that time of the year where we look back on the old and look forward to the new. 2014 was a fantastic year for us, with weddings all over Munster, but mostly in my own county of Tipperary and, of course, down the road in Kilkenny. But these are only a few areas I have visited of course. I’ll be in Carlow, Waterford and Limerick, as well, over the next few days – Windgap in Kilkenny  then on to the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny, Cashel  & Dundrum House Hotel Tipperary, and back to Kilkenny to return to the New park Hotel again for my first wedding of 2015. I love Christmas and new year weddings. My Christmas weddings of 2014 over the last few weeks  have been so busy & fantastic, with lovely light, cosy fires in the hotels – not that I get to stand by it for long or taste the mulled wine! But it’s still nice with everyone dressed with a hint of black and red. Overall, it’s a lovely time to get married.

I  have updated some of my wedding video packages for the coming year, as stated on my site. No big changes, just a little more value for your money. I kept my prices the same last year and will for next year, and yes, for 2016 as well! Now that’s value for your money going forward! My ongoing promotion for referring a friend still stands. This has been a HUGE success. Just a little reminder, when you book your wedding with me, and if you refer a friend who is getting married or planning their wedding and looking for a wedding videographer and should they book me on your referral for their wedding videography, you will get money off your chosen package and so will they. It’s simple. All mywedding video packages for 2015 / 2016 are well designed for you, the couple, in mind. A quick look over them you can see the full details of my wedding video packages here

 

Silver package :very reasonable price of 400 this is the starting price, you can build on this. Starting at the church 1hr before the service up to when you leave for the hotel.

Silver plus: All of above but also coverage can start at you house should you wish and recording up to when you sit for your evening meal or 6.30

Gold:   All of above and also  include your speeches if carried out before the meal,*

Diamond: All above plus recording will continue in to a selection of dances that night this is one of my very popular packages which covers all of you day up to 11.pm, as with any of my packages I will make sure no matter what you budget is, or what wedding video packageyou have chosen I will pack it with fantastic footage of you day.

Over the years I have filmed every wedding video package under the sun, some only want just 2 hrs, others, well into the evening. So give me a call or e-mail me and we can discuss your day the way YOU want it, with your amount of coverage needed. You can easily contact me through Facebook. If you wish to call, my phone numbers are here on my site along with my e-mail, or call to my studio. Along with that, I am a wedding supplier with all the major hotels and suppliers in and around Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow, Waterford. To mention just a few, Dundrum House Hotel Tipperary, The New Park Hotel Kilkenny, The Tower Hotel Waterford, The woodlands Hotel Waterford, Lyrath Estate Hotel, check out their promo wedding video Kilkenny,  Langton House Hotel Kilkenny. I am also associated with the very popular BRIDES IN TIPPERARY- MUNSTER It’s a wealth of knowledge for the brides and grooms of Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow, and any other county they might be from in 2015- 2016 when booking or planning their wedding day.

It’s Sunday evening and I must get ready for a wedding videotomorrow of a lovely couple. The bride is, of course, a local girl from Tipperary and the groom, a Kilkenny man, so I’m looking forward to a fun filled day. I don’t get a chance to sit and writeblogs much as I would like to, but I love to keep up with my work by having the couples wedding video completed on time and ready for collection when they come back off honeymoon. It’s like the school shows I filmed over Christmas time – ALL were ready and delivered on time for Christmas for their families to enjoy on Christmas day. I filmed a show in Newport in Tipperary on the 17th of December, and the very large amount of DVDs were delivered to the school on the 19th – two day later! Now that’s service and, of course, with a :) Breda, my good wife and editor in one, was a big part of the editing and packing over Christmas. With weddings and shows all over Tipperary and Kilkenny, this is where two people working as a great team makes a great video business. My last few words are, of course, to wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2015 ~ Jo

Irish toasts and blessings for your wedding day.

Irish toasts and blessings for your wedding day.

Irish toasts and blessings for your wedding day.

By Abbey Video Productions

Throughout my career as a wedding videographer in Tipperary, I have had the pleasure of filming and witnessing many poignant and emotional wedding ceremonies. Certain details from the day may remain with me and stand out in my memory, such as a sincerely spoken prayer or blessing. When I see the guests are silent, contemplative, with heads bowed down as they listen intently, I sense how the prayer has struck a chord, helping to bring everyone together in thought for that moment. Traditional Irish prayers and blessings can help bring this quality of intimacy to your wedding ceremony. And as they are traditional they are also loaded with nostalgia. Perhaps the guests will remember their grandparents saying them long ago, and hearing them again will evoke old memories. I am heavily booked for the summer season, but a few slots remain available, so please enquire soon if you are interested and in order to avoid disappointment. Now is also a great time to think about hiring your wedding videographer if you are getting married in 2015. Should you like to discuss any aspect of wedding videography, please get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to help and discuss your ideas. If you are still not sure, have a look at my newest testimonials, packages and some of the fantastic wedding videos which I have filmed recently. ~ Joe

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.
