In this blog I would like to show the civil ceremony wedding film of Kayla and Declan which took place in late October last year in the grounds of Belleek Castle in Ballina. As a wedding videographer there isn't a lot of time to film what you need so when everything is in one location it takes a lot of pressure off!

I started the morning in one of Belleek Castles suites to film the morning preparations of the Bride and Bridal party geting ready for the big day, filming the make up and dress shots that open my films. These can be some of the best and most artistic shots in the film so I am always happy when a couple opt for the Highlight Package which includes filming of the morning preparations as well as the short highlight film that has proven to be the most popular wedding package and film of my work.

The civil ceremony took place in the chapel in the same grounds so it was a short walk over to get set up and film the groom and guests arrival and wait for the bride.

The grounds of Belleek Castle are expansive and beautiful so its always a pleasure to film the bridal party shoot there with photographer Aidan Oliver a talented photographer from Dublin who also travels nationwide and would highly recommend for his talent and working style, putting his couples and their familys at easy in a relaxed manner.

The above wedding film is included in the Highlight Package and you can find all the information on that package and my others on my wedding video packages page. Please also feel free to check out some other videos here and some more on my vimeo page here. You can find some information about me and my working style here and some reviews and testimonials as well.
