Elopements are fast becoming a popular alternative to the ‘traditional big wedding’ way couples get married or do their vow renewal. With the Forty shades of green, the rich history, warm culture and friendly people makes Ireland a great place to elope… even with rainy weather, in fact the rainy weather can make for some epic photos if you are willing :)
With so many stunning locations to say your vows at, how do you choose just one? Well why choose one when you don’t have too? Ireland is pretty small, but big in locations that are not to far from one another. Here are only a few of my favourite places to elope in Ireland
Situated in the North Coast sits the stunning castle ruin on the edge of a cliff in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. It was built in the 1500’s this medieval ruin casts a dramatic background to say your vows too. I love it there. The best part is, its so close to other epic locations, like Ballintoy Harbour, Giants Causeway coast line only to name a few. Click here to see an elopement shot at Dunluce castle for an idea.
Along the coast line in the North Coast there is a stunning cliff top walk with thee most incredible scenery. Starting at Dunseverick Castle you can hike for just under two hours to reach the Giants Causeway and see some incredible views along the way. You don’t need to walk the full two hours, the epic views start almost immediately which means you can have plenty of time to explore other areas near by.
What can I say, this place is incredible with its rugged cliffs lines, another ancient Castle ruin, and stunning views. Kinbane Head is the first place where I shot and adventure elopement over three years ago, this place has my heart. Situated amongst the Causeway Coastline of Northern Ireland. Kinbane is not yet well known, even to the locals, its always so quiet there from tourists which means you will most likely have the place to yourself. Have a look here at the first elopement I shot there and see what you think.
This place is absolutely stunning, The best part about here is you don’t have to walk to far. Its situated just of the road in County Antrim, near the small village of Dunseverick and the Giant’s Causeway. There is a walkway you can do from here to the giants causeway and see some more stunning views and have more options for your photos. This is a perfect location and of course another irish castle ruin, whats not to love.Click here to see some more
My husband and I eloped in Yosemite on a warm evening with only our photographers and videographer as our witness. We then spent the next month traveling over south America. Our day was uniquely us—relaxed, fun, and intimate. as anyones. It was ours, we read our vows to each other with out the embarrassment of three hundred people listening ( I couldn’t do that, thats just me ) It was our dream day, and I cannot wait to help you create yours. Let’s make it happen.
