Top Tips for Your Ireland Elopement or intimate wedding!

Ireland, home of some of the most astounding pieces of nature and mankind, can be your place of destination. As a wedding photographer in this beloved country, I’ve personally seen picturesque venues that are certainly fit for taking the plunge!

1.Hire a Professional and Experienced Photographer
In intimate weddings like these, you will need someone who’s flexible to carry the job of capturing your special and beautiful moments. With the cold and rainy weather to anticipate at any time, it is indeed inconvenient to shoot your wedding on your own. Your big day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you need to hire a photographer who’s willing to help you in the most professional (and fun) way.

2. Choose your Wedding Planner Wisely
Elopement marriages are very popular these days and couples who wanted to elope tend to plan and arrange everything by themselves. As a tip, you might want to get a wedding planner, especially, when you must arrange some complicated documents. By hiring an event pro, you can chill, worry less, and easily build excitement for that awesome day of yours!

3.Wear Durable Footwear
Ireland weather is unpredictable, there’s no doubt. For this reason, one of the most important things you should never forget in your elopement is boots! It is best to wear good shoes as not only you will be walking to your way through forever, but you would also have to walk through that inconsistent weather. As for your overall outfit, tracking the weather will surely help you in deciding what to wear for the day.

Best Ireland Destinations for Saying I Do

As I have mentioned above, Ireland is best for couples who want to run away and elope! This is especially true if you’re prepared for an unforgettable adventure whilst admiring the beauty of the view. To give you some ideas, I’ll be naming some of the most ethereal spots for tying the knot with your beau. Certain places like the following will certainly be perfect for saying I Do!

1. Killarney, County Kerry
Water and history, what a great combination! From Killarney’s sparkling waterfalls to majestic ancient buildings, the destination is an excellent choice for that intimate wedding of yours. My camera can never resist these wonderful destinations, especially when you’re in frame with the love of your life. Those breathtaking waters can be an amazing background while you’re exchanging your sincere vows.

2. Dingle, County Kerry
Situated on the coast of the Atlantic, this stunning town in the Dingle Peninsula offers the scenery of the vast ocean which is fit for astonishing portraits! Perfect for outgoing music lovers, this jewel is also a haven of traditional Irish music. Dingle also has St.Mary’s, which is a neo-gothic church, if you still want a private church wedding.

3. Connemara
When you decided to take your wedding to this gem, you have to prepare your shoes because it’s going to be a long walk! Connemara offers exceptional trails to go through, perfect for a “we’re lost in the middle of nowhere, but the good thing is I have you” or an “I have a long way to go, but I don’t mind because I’m with you” kind of theme for photos or for the whole event. In addition to its mind-blowing trails, this destination also offers amazing harbors which are excellent for a water ride to forever! Secluded villages are also available for a visit, fit for that intimate wedding of yours.

This is going to be a chilly adventure, especially during autumn or wintertime, so be sure to wrap up! From the cold Atlantic breeze to the most scenic cliff walks, the Wild Atlantic Way is best suited for those intimate moments during your wedding.
