Only the best for your wedding

Hi all, and welcome to this month’s wedding blog. I’m Joe at Abbey Video Productions.

When I started wedding videos here in Tipperary and Kilkenny, the cameras were BIG with a large cassette in. Thankfully, those times have passed and technology has moved on. My new cameras are Sony pxw- x180s. These cameras are so easy to carry, are lightweight and have much more flexibility. They are also much less obtrusive which is very important on a wedding day.

 

The use of SxS mem cards means less storage space is needed, and drop out from the old VHS tapes are long gone. HIGH quality is very important to me as a videographer here in Tipperary and Kilkenny, along with low lighting. Capability is a must, as no one likes a video light; again these days are gone.

Editing systems : Where do I start? And do you really need to know all the technology of it? Probably not! But let me give you a quick overview. I use two editing systems — Vegas Pro 13 and, of course, the old faithful Pinnacle Studio 14 HD for smaller projects. The editing system is only as good as the camera person: If your shots are not framed right or are shaky, no editing system will fix it 100%. So that’s where expertise in filming comes into play. But, of course, what’s a wedding video without a few nice, gentle special effects. That being said, I don’t like to overdo them, as they look tacky. I have seen some wedding videos with butterflies floating around the screen, or some gold dust falling over the bride as she walks in a park … tacky!

 

Classic_Mass_Booklet3Well its not new, but  Flash drives with your full wedding along with chapters have  now been in for a while I have delivered some weddings on them and the quality is fantastic, but not every household  has a  TVs with a flash drive slot so the good old DVD is here for a while yet, but the Flash drives will soon be our main format for delivery The reason is that it will allow us to supply your wedding footage  in  broadcast high definition quality, all my weddings are recorded  with the very latest Sony pxw- x180 cameras so its time to make the change and let couples really enjoy better than 100% quality.

Where can this all happen:

 

While I am based in Tipperary, but I also have a huge clientele in Kilkenny, Carlow, Waterford, Wexford, and everywhere around Ireland, really you could find me anywhere.

Tipperary is, of course, my local area and I love local weddings. It’s great to be asked back to film a wedding for a family that I have all ready worked for. That’s ‘word of mouth’ and the BEST way to do business. Kilkenny is my next area, as it was in the Kilkenny/Carlow area that I filmed one of my first weddings. Only last week, I was in Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow with the reception in  Mount Wolseley   but, as I said, I love to film. So wherever your wedding is, give me a call and let’s chat about your special day. After all, I do have the experience.

Wedding Video Abbey Court Hotel Nenagh CoTipperary

 Wedding Video at Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, Co Tipperary    ( Post By Abbey Video )

It’s great  to have a wedding video on a Thursday in March, and a local one at that!  Kilcommon Church was my booking, and what a cold place it was. But for Mari & Raymond it was a perfect day … it was their wedding day.  A quick call to Mari’s house on the way to the Church was my first stop.  The girls were rushing around with make up, hair dryers, the works! I knew this was going to be a fun filled wedding day right away, and it was! I left Mari’s house to head to the church to capture the guys at the church but found them at a different type of establishment, with Guinness written over the door!  Having filmed all the little details that Mari & Raymond had organised for the inside of the Church I went on to film the large number of family and friends arriving.

 

Mari arrived on time along with her bridesmaids in a party bus, which was a great surprise for all. Raymond and the lads were already in their places at the top of the Church getting some good advice from Fr Dan Woods! Mari and her dad made their way up the aisle to a wonderful greeting from Raymond, and Fr Dan gave a lovely meaningful  service as usual, quick to the the point.

 

The wonderful Abbey Court Hotel was our stop for the evening, and who better than Ray to make everyone so welcome. I find Ray Lynch, the Wedding Co-ordinator, so helpful on the day of a wedding not only to the guests, but also to all the wedding suppliers. Ray has always been great to me recommending my video services to brides and grooms for quite a few years.  The Abbey Court Hotel is also listed on my sister site BRIDES IN MUNSTER along with a short video showcasing the hotel.

 

After some  video footage of the guests mingling and the photo shoot, it was time to film this wonderful hotel’s function room. I love to film the little details on the tables and any other personal and guest orientated details. The speeches were carried out before the meal which i think is a fantastic idea, as it allows the speakers to enjoy their meal knowing that the speeches are over and done with.

Their band for the evening was “Atomik Chicken” and from the first dance they had the floor full all night. Best wishes to Mari & Raymond, as i said it was a fun-filled wedding enjoyed by all including myself  🙂  A  big thank you for having Abbey Video Productions capture your special day.
