Well the Christmas Day celebrations are over and as we wind down and head towards the end of the year we can take a look back at 2016…
One of the highlights of the year for me was winning the Mrs2be Brides’ Choice award for videography. Being shortlisted last year and making it to finalist stage was very exciting but winning the category this year was something special and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank again all the couples who voted for us, and especially Jackie who nominated us. We hope we can continue to provide the same level of customer satisfaction in Tipperary, Kilkenny and further afield in 2017 and beyond!
Of course it’s also a time to look ahead to the future and for newly engaged coupes it’s such an exciting time! This time of year is very popular for engagements and for the first few weeks of January the bookings come in thick and fast! So if you’re planning on getting married on a key date over the next few years such as a bank holiday weekend or around Christmas or the New Year, now’s the time to start making those enquiries! Contact us here at Abbey Video Productions for more information and advice and we’ll be happy to help you.
With the last few weddings of the year coming up for us, at Annacarty in Co. Tipperary and Kilmoganny in Co. Kilkenny, we would like to thank all of our 2016 brides and grooms, along with all of our other customers from shows and individual projects. We look forward to the many weddings we will be recording in 2017 and hope that the New Year brings happiness and health to you all. So if your getting married in 2107 / 2018 / 2019 get in touch and we can work out a package that will suit you.
My idea of creating a website just for wedding videography services in Kilkenny following feed back for brides and grooms around Kilkenny & Carlowareas has been a huge success for me. Bookings have been pouring in from the areas I have targeted, and of course its a huge thank you to all the couples that have me booked for this year – 2016 – 2017 and I got my first 2 booking for 2018 ! this morning in Kilkenny so happy days there so that’s my little bit of feedback on the site, as one bride said to me today pity some other Wedding videographers did not think of it earlier… well they are to late now !
Now talking about Kilkenny, I filmed a lovely wedding there 2 weeks ago for Kelly O Shea & Brandon Walsh, both Kilkenny people, Kelly admitted she priced and looked at samples of other “video” guys but she loved the way my footage flowed and of course my prices, which was very important to her and everyone these days along with my invisible way of filming their wedding day.
A quick call to Kelly’s home the morning of the wedding which is just across the street from St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kilkenny city was a must, its where the fun begins for me on a wedding day, as everyone is so excited with the make-up people there , the friends and family calling its a real buzz, Kelly kept no one waiting and the day ran like clock work. John Delaney their photographerwas all ready there when i arrived, John is a fantastic photographer and also owns Johns photo boot we meet quite a lot at weddings in and around Kilkenny, and of course we both recommend each other to couples which is a great way to network. Brides in Munster, Tipperary and Kilkenny’s wedding supplier website was also a part
After the lovely ceremony by Fr Willie Purcell who is great fun and makes every couple relaxed with his approach, o yes and he also commented on how unobtrusive I was …. just thought I get that little bit in there 🙂 we went to Kilkenny castlefor the photo shoot and what a day for the Castle grounds , which is rare these days with our Irish weather, we got some lovely walking shots of Kelly and Brandon and where would you be without the famous water feature in the grounds of the castle, As John was taking the last few photographs I made my way to no other thanLangtons house hotel in the center of Kilkenny city, where my good friend Sean was on hand with the champagne, Sean is a great guy makes sure all is going smoothly on the day, myself and Sean go back a long way and he always recommends me to couples who is booking their wedding at Langtons if you look at their wedding sheets Wedding video Kilkennyis number one on it for wedding video.
Well that’s all for now i’m afraid, as we have a load of editing to get done and my main editor Breda is dowloading a fresh wedding video to the timeline, with 3 more weddings this week – end, New park Hotel Kilkenny Thursday | Hotel Minella Clonmel Friday| Dundrum HouseSaturday, but its great ALL local, 1 from Kilkenny and 2 from my home area of Cashel so happy days. and a thank you to Kelly and Brandon for choosing weddingvideokilkenny.com to film their wedding day in Kilkenny, but I’m sure I will meet this very popular Kilkenny couple at many more wedding in Kilkenny and Tipperary along the way ~ Joe o yes below is a little feed back Kelly left on myface book ……
