Well here in Tipperary and Kilkenny we are well and truly into the Wedding video season again for the new year. Like all other wedding suppliers I come across lots of fantastic professionals along the way, and one that springs to mind is Eimear Lowth from Boherlahan in County Tipperary. I meet Eimear at lots of weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford, and of course all the local churches near Cashel. At one such wedding which I filmed only 2 weeks ago Eimear was the official soloist and the applause of the wedding guests showed how much they loved her singing. After the Church Eimear went to the reception to entertain the guests as they mingled and enjoyed themselves at the hotel, she really got them going with some great songs and music that was well suited to the age group that was attending the wedding. Have a look below at the clip I recorded of her at that wedding………
Eimear is a trained classical singer but also sings traditional Irish and modern music. She is a very keen person and is passionate about her music. Eimear pays great detail to the needs of all her wedding clients, helping plan and arrange the perfect church wedding music, music that best suits each couples personal tastes. Whether it’s music for a wedding service, funeral service, civil ceremony or pre-dinner drinks function, Eimear will be delighted to discuss your requirements with you. So if you have an up-coming wedding function drop her an e-mail at email@example.com before she’s booked! Eimear is also listed on the very popular wedding supplier site Brides In Munster covering Tipperary- Kilkenny and all of Munster, soon to be country wide!

As a full-time freelance musician based in Limerick, Ireland, John divides his time as a husband and father with his Singing Character acts, his band “Two Easi” and his ever-popular one man show.
John’s background lies in stage acting and performance (Island Theatre Company) and included appearances on Television and Radio alike. He relies heavily on this experience when performing as a musician and is always conscious of entertaining and engaging with his audience.His professional musicianship has taken him all over the country and John has been lucky enough to play venues such as Dolans Warehouse, Limerick (The Lollygaggers), The Savoy, Cork (Greenday tribute band “American Idiots”) and to sing at weddings in Slane Castle and Adare Manor (Final Touch).
Are you getting married and looking for something special for your big day? Looking for a personal touch or something unique? Johnny, The Singing Chef, just loves to surprise people with his vocal talents.Masquerading as the Hotel’s Head Chef Johnny moves around the room ensuring that all are happy with their meal and service. He takes to the microphone to address the crowd and thank them on behalf of the venue for their custom. He hopes they are enjoying the meal he has worked so hard to prepare and becomes quite emotional about how happy he is that you and your guests are so happy, so happy in fact that he bursts into song; yes, you’ve guessed it – “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
From that point on it’s a roller-coaster ride of modern and classic songs with built in audience participation and interaction which not only breaks the ice but also sets the perfect party atmosphere in the room for the rest of the night.
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 Kilkenny , 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 Kilkenny Carlow, Cork, Waterford 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.
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.
