Eloping at the Giants Causeway: A Dreamy and Intimate Experience
People from all over the world travel to Northern Ireland to see the Giants Causeway, a natural wonder. Due to its distinctive natural characteristics, such as the hexagonal basalt columns, it is an incredible location for your elopement photos. Its located next to so many insanely beautiful locations on the North Coast. We almost always visit the giants causeway for some photos on the couples elopement day. It’s for sure one of my favourite locations along the North Coast.
Here are five real-life examples of couples who have had their elopement photos at the Giants Causeway:
- Kailee and Kavan: These guys travelled over from Canada to elope on the north coast of Ireland. They spent two weeks traveling Ireland and Scotland. They choose to Elope in Northern Ireland and explore some of the various locations, including the Giants Causeway.
- Jacqueline and Andrew traveled all the way over from Florida to elope at Dunluce castle with their family and friends. Jacqueline and Andrew has an intimate first look at their airbnb before heading to Dunluce for their ceremony with their closest family and friends in tow. After their ceremony we headed to the giants causeway at sunset where there were fewer tourists and the light was perfect. Such an incredible day
- Jack and Jessie : Jack and Jessie wanted a destination elopement that was unique and unforgettable. They found the Giants Causeway to be the perfect location and while surrounded by the beautiful scenery and the light was just perfect ( Chefs kiss ) . Again, if you want to explore the Giants Causeway on your elopement day I suggest going at sunset, not only is the light beautiful, its much more quieter.

After exploring so many of the most incredible locations we ended up at The Giants Causeway at the end of the day and were treated with a beautiful sunset.

They had the big wedding planned back in the states then decided it wasn’t for them. They decided they had to elope in Ireland with a few of their favourite people at Dunluce castle. Afterwards we explored the Giants Causeway which provided the perfect setting before heading back to spend the evening with their guests.
