Lesbian Elopement in Ireland

Dark Hedges Ireland Lesiban elopement photos

I photographed a lesbian elopement in Ireland and it was a dream. I have been working with A+K for over a year. We photographed their engagement session last December in Park City, Utah. Flew across the pond to for their stunning wedding in June. I value having these long lasting relationship with my couples!

A +K had a beautiful Ireland elopement with their daughter and parents. Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland was the best backdrop to a ceremony that felt like a fairytale. One bride had a white wedding gown, and the other a black wedding gown. This combination was a stunning contrast.

Dunluce Castle is one of the most scenic places in Northern Ireland! The huge castle and dramatic cliffs overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Which makes for an amazing backdrop for a lesbian elopement in Ireland.

Multiple Photo Locations in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is the perfect place to elope! It has multiple locations all close together! Locations like the dark hedges (game of thrones was filmed here!), Dunluce Castle, Giant’s Causeway, Carrick Rop Bridge, Causeway Coast, and many more! Ireland is one of the most popular elopement destinations around the world. It’s no surprise that Ireland has become a top choice for couples who want to get married with just their loved ones present. The Emerald Isle offers gorgeous scenery and amazing views, which make it an ideal place for those looking to tie-the-knot in a more casual setting.

Eloping can be less expensive than having a traditional wedding ceremony and reception because of smaller guest count. Elopements are between 0-15 guests. Couples who want to keep things intimate can opt for an outdoor ceremony and then spend time touring Ireland’s historic sites and stunning landscapes before heading home together.

Favorite Details from this lesbian elopement in Ireland

Elopements are the perfect way to have a non-traditional wedding and still have a ceremony that is meaningful. A + K chose Ireland as their destination for their elopement. They had friends, family, and their daughter along for the ride! I love that they incorporated her into their day and some gorgeous photos of them all together at Dunlance Castle in Northern Ireland.

Government recognition of LGBTQIA+ rights in the Ireland has improved greatly over recent years and, in 2015, it became the first nation to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. I’m so honored I got to photograph this lesbian elopement in Ireland! I hope to go back soon!
