Well I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas, and a lovely time with family and friends as I did. Wedding Video Bookings for 2016 are pouring in the last few days. Even January this year is as busy as July! It’s something I have never encountered before but is great to see. Even 2017 is well booked at the moment and 2018 is starting already. Throughout the year, I have had to recommend some well heeled colleagues of mine to brides for whom I was booked for their date. If I am booked, I don’t just send them a name of the first videographer that springs to mind. I have a few professional guys that I hold in the highest regard and we always recommend each other, should one of us be booked. With this way of working, no couple will get the run around with different prices. I would never recommend someone I would not use my self.
Tomorrow its back to work with my first wedding of this mad busy time of year is in Tipperary town tomorrow, Tuesday is Inch near Thurles and then on to Kilkenny and to the the fantastic Lyrath hotel. And of course New Years eve is a very popular choice with couples all over Ireland Solohead just a few miles from me is where you will find me that day, its great to be local this time of year. I love the Christmas & New year weddings
The last few weeks has been hectic filming weddings and school shows in and around Tipperary along with Kilkenny and Waterford as well as editing. But ALL my weddings even the last one on the on the 19th of December, was with the couple in time for Christmas for them to enjoy with family and friends over the holidays, I cant understand some videographers that I hear of leaving couples without their wedding DVDs for Christmas, Breda and myself make sure we have all the info for their wedding on our computer inc their titles, music choices, so when I have the film downloaded to our system we are ready to go!
While looking back on last year, Dundrum House Hotel In Tipperary which is with with great sadness has been damaged by fire earlier this year was one of my most visited wedding reception areas along with Clonmel Park Hotel Hotel Minella, Clonmel, Hotel Kilkenny , New park hotel Kilkenny I also visited Cork, Waterford and Limerick. And I would like to thank all the hotels for their help on the day, and look forward to working in all the local hotels around Tipperary, Kilkenny and Carlow and the others again in 2016 So wherever you might be getting married, give me a call and I will give you the most competitive price you will find anywhere in Munster.
So, with a fantastic looking year ahead and with 80% of my work in and around Tipperary and Kilkenny, I guess I can’t complain. However, with every new year I try and create a new and unique way of crafting wedding videos and editing. Anyone can give you a wedding video, but I try and make it that bit special. It’s this that has kept me ahead of other other “video guys “, while still offering a Professional Affordable and Unobtrusive service. So, if you are planning your wedding for this year, you’d better be quick and contact me now, or even for 2016/ 2017 as I am being booked very fast. To see my new and unique way of how your wedding video could look, give me a call. I will try to match your service area, along with the hotel that you might be using, with a full wedding DVD to view at home. This way, you get a feel of my true work
Weddings are huge business in every country, and your wedding needs planing a lot of planing I know I hear it all first hand so to help you along with your big day have a look at BRIDES IN MUNSTER again a local wedding suppler site but covering Kilkenny and Carlow for the local brides in 2015/ 16
its packed with 100% top notch wedding professionals covering wedding video , wedding photography, wedding cakes , wedding flowers, wedding rings, wedding dresses, wedding sweet carts any thing wedding its there! as I said before if you don’t see a Wedding a suppler on this great local wedding supplier site are they worth the call?
Also I got many thank you cards over Christmas from couples whose weddings I have filmed over the year, with 80% of them from around Tipperary where most of my work is. It’s great to get feedback from brides, it shows we are doing a great job and they enjoyed their wedding DVDs.
Wedding videography is a record of your day the way you would like it told, and along with our camera skills and editing this can be achieved. No wedding is the same and any videographer that goes out to do a job should never treat it like “yesterdays wedding” – every couple has different ideas of what they think their wedding video should look and feel like and I love to hear this, because it gives me a clear picture of what they are seeing. When the day arrives I keep this in mind, and work to achieve it.
So Happy New year to you all. and If your planing on ” tieing the knot” or you know someone who is, give me a call I can guarantee you wont be disappoint in price or quality ( All photos © Abbey Video)
