Aren’t elopements incredibly sweet and romantic? Don’t get me wrong, I love weddings with the emotions spilling and colours popping. But there’s something lovely about a wedding for 2. You get to spend an amazing day with your loved one. You can bathe in each other’s presence and sock in the new status of husband and wife. There’s something very singular about sharing this day with one another. And you don’t have to worry about arriving late at the church! If it sounds like your cup of tea, think about eloping in Ireland.
Eloping in Ireland has recently become very popular. I’m not surprise as there being so many fantastic elopement locations. One small hitch is that you can’t legally bring an official celebrant to the picturesque cliffs with you. The paperwork will have to be done elsewhere, before or after your vows. But imagine the feeling of standing in a gorgeous location surrounded by Irish greenery. Look into your beloved’s eyes and say those magical words that you’ve longed to say (and hear back!) for so long…
Eloping in Ireland from America
Hannah and Alan did exactly this – a beautiful wedding ceremony for two on Howth cliffs. If you are thinking of where to elope in Ireland I’m sure the most picturesque locations quickly spring to mind. Cliffs of Moher will likely be one of them. If heading West is not part of your plans, there are plenty of fantastic elopement locations around Dublin. Howth is one of my favourites. The Baily Lighthouse provides a gorgeous backdrop and, as an added bonus, it’s usually a very intimate spot!
On that particular day we were greeted by an overcast sky. Don’t expect bright and sunny colours if you are planning a destination wedding in Ireland! For me, though, this wild and rugged beauty is a very distinct part of the Irish charm. My own dear husband performed the ceremony for the beautiful couple. Afterwards we took a lovely walk for some cosy and very intimate wedding photographs around the cliffs and in Howth village. What an amazing day!
