Last 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 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!
Winner Mrs2Be brides choice awards 2016
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
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.
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
Abbey Wedding Videos Productions for Brides in Munster Tipperary & Kilkenny
It’s great to have had a local wedding video job in Tipperary on the Saturday that Tipperary & Kilkenny met again for the all Ireland replay, and what a day! Katie Lyne from Lisronagh, between Fethard and Clonmel, & Barry Hickey tied the knot in glorious sunshine in Holycross Abbey. A quick call to Katie’s fabulous house that morning to capture it all going on – hair being done, make up being applied, ribbons being put on the cars – it had the hallmarks of a great wedding to come! Barry and the lads were at the Abbey in Holycross nice and early to meet and greet the huge number of guests that had been invited. Katie was not long behind and it was a first for me to see the Bride drive herself to the ceremony in her own car! She looked stunning in her beautiful Audi with her Dad beside her in the passenger seat….

Wedding Videographer Kilkenny
Abbey Video Productions, we pride ourselves on providing a professional, affordable and unobtrusive service. I have worked diligently to become the finest wedding videography production company in Kilkenny, Munster & Ireland. Book now to avoid disappointment
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

Post by Abbey Video Productions: As a wedding videographer in Tipperary Christmas weddings this year is so busy, I am lucky they don’t allow Church weddings on Christmas day or I would be working. I really enjoy the festive weddings, the bright crisp air the fabulous light that these days offer and the Christmas décor in the many hotels we visit locally over this time of the year, Last evening I was looking at our books for the Christmas session and Holy Cross & Dundrum House Hotel, Cashel & Ballykisteen along with Clonmel and Of course a big favourite of mine is Kilshane House Hotel Tipperary for a New Years eve wedding so lets rock I say !”

In these wonderful times of technology why not have a small clip of your wedding video online and on our Facebook page.

4. Years down the road
Twenty years or more from now your children can relive your wedding video. Remember, your wedding video is not just for a day, it’s forever – a keepsake for your children’s children.
5. Is it in our budget?
We have heard of so many disappointed couples who did not have a video for their wedding day for one reason or another. Maybe in the heat of the moment they thought they would not need one, or swapped it for a few extra flowers. Some couples might get a family member or friend to video bits of their day, but apart from putting pressure on the guest they won’t have the professional equipment and therefore quality that a professional videographer will have. We at Abbey Video Productions are like our motto: we are Professional, Affordable, Unobtrusive. At the end of the day, it’s one day: YOUR day and I am sure it’s a day you never want to forget.
6 Where are we based?
We are based in Cashel Co Tipperary, But distance is no problem Over the years through feed back from couples, we have learned how important it is to all involved on a wedding day for the video person to maintain a discreet profile while still capturing every single detail of your day, this we can promise !
Here’s a comment we often hear ” Hi joe, I just wanted to say a big thank you for our incredible wedding dvd it was lovely to look at, u captured amazing footage, we’ll have a lifetime of memories to look back on, id recommend you to any bride and groom, you were the Invisible Man on the day ! 🙂 all the best joe. . Paul and Trish”
“We have all been to a wedding where the photographer runs the day, ordering everyone about. That ain’t me! I don’t fuss, hassle or get in the way. It’s your day, not the photographer’s day. I listen to what you want. I meet with each couple at least twice before the big day and I also scout out the locations of the wedding to really make the best of your time on the day.I capture those magical, natural moments. The beautiful moments that tell the entire story of the day. The moments that you will cherish forever.
For info on prices and collections, get in touch now. I look forward to photographing one of the best days of your life! “
