A great local wedding video in Fethard

Last Friday, 18 of July, the town of Fethard was my stop again to film the wedding of a lovely couple, Ailish & Robert.  Ailish is a local girl, just 2km outside the old town of Fethard. I arrived at Ailish’s house to find ribbons and bows being tied and stuck on the cars with great excitement. The bride-to-be was inside enjoying a cool glass of champagne with her bridesmaids. The hair was being styled and make up applied amid the rush for all to get ready. I then moved on the short drive to Fethard. I like to be at the church about one hour before it starts to set up and, of course, get the groom and the lads arriving, along with the huge number of guests. But of course,  McCarthy’s  pub across the street was calling the lads, so they gave in and went in for one. Why not, as I often say to couples. It’s your day, enjoy it your way. As I was going into Fethard church, I met with Fr. Breen, a lovely man to have at a wedding. He is so easygoing and makes the ceremony part easy on all. He turned to me and said: “You again! Two times here in three weeks!”. I replied: “When you’re good, you’re good!”  🙂  I’m looking forward to filming quite a few more wedding videos in Fethard before the end of the summer and next year.

The flowers that  Ailish & Robert had in the church were only fantastic, along with other wedding day bits and pieces. Not long after the lads came across the road from the local, Andrew McDermott, their wedding photographer, was ready to capture them before they met with the guests who were now arriving and set them up for their pre wedding photos

A short time later, Ailish arrived to a fantastic blue sky along with her bridesmaids. Again, Fr. Breen put all at ease with a full ceremony, but to the point. He also thanked both myself and Andrew for our courteous and professional conduct in the church during the wedding ceremony. In no time, we were heading again to McCarthy’s pub across the street for a few photographs and video of the couple pulling a pint. We then moved on to the old Fethard walls for some great video footage and photographs on the bridge and by the water.

Steve from Events Limousines was the driver for the day. I meet Steve at lots of local weddings around Tipperary, but he’s based in Waterford and has some fantastic cars to hire for a wedding or any event. He had an open day in his business premises in Waterford a bit back and and I had my business banner there for the weekend on display. I got a fantastic amount of enquires and bookings for next year and 2016 from it, so thanks for that, Steve.

Dundrum House Hotel was our stop for the evening and I was back in Dundrum the next day for another local wedding. It was nice to be just 10 minutes from home most weekends.

Andrew and myself took the couple and their families around the lovely grounds for some photos and video . We had loads of time to spare before the bell for dinner was called and, with the speeches before the meal, they were short and witty but covered everything. The couple chose Eden as their band and they had the floor rocking all night. Wishing the best of luck to Ailish & Robert and thanking them for choosing me at Abbey Video Productions to capture their special day.

As I was typing about Fethard earlier, I thought I would give you a little info on  McCarthy’s  pub. Enjoy…    ~  Joe

McCarthy’s of Fethard  Established in the 1850s

Established by Richard McCarthy in the 1850s, McCarthy’s Hotel provided the services of a spirit merchant, restaurant, hotel, undertaker, draper, grocer, baker, hackney service, glass, delph and china shop and if you still couldn’t get what you want – hire a few horses to take you elsewhere. Continuing in this tradition the present proprietor, Annette Murphy (fourth generation McCarthy), has a pub, restaurant and undertaker business which she runs with her family (fifth generation McCarthy).

McCarthy’s is situated in the medieval town of Fethard in Co. Tipperary. Formerly a very important market town in the 16th century, the town fell into decline. In the past twenty years the country in general, and Fethard in particular, has thrived – due in no small part to the equine scene in Coolmore and its associated farms plus numerous trainers and breeders dotted around Fethard. The re-discovery of our medieval past is of great importance to Fethard. Much of the medieval walls which surround the town have remained intact and a large portion of these walls have been restored. The town has been described as the most important walled town in Ireland next to Derry and is fast becoming the focal point for medieval scholars and tourists alike.
