Elopement to Historic Glendalough, Ireland

        Anna and Justin are an adventurous young couple. They pretty much told me they’d hike up a mountain for their elopement to get married. Sounded pretty romantic but I wasn’t sure how that would suit their 4 guests, Romy, their celebrant from A Beautiful Ceremony, Ros their photographer from Couple Photography, or me! – Not that I wouldn’t do anything for my couples.  😉

        What I came up with was for them to go hiking up mountains in the beautiful and historic area around historic Glendalough, Co Wicklow the day before their ceremony but for their wedding, have their ceremony on the edge of the upper lake so they still have the feeling of seclusion and mountains {without exhausting the rest of us}. A lakeside wedding in the Wicklow mountains it was!

        Post ceremony cake and sparking wine really hit the spot before going for more photos in Glendalough Monastic City.

        An impromptu bouquet toss may give us our next couple for Elope to Ireland. And the way the photos look, there was fierce competition to actually catch Anna’s bouquet!

        And the couple end the afternoon as most Irish weddings and elopements finish up, with pints of Guinness in the pub.

        Congratulations again to Anna and Justin!
