Romantic & Moody Cliffs of Moher Elopement

Nov 21, 2023

Last week, we brought you the most beautiful, quintessential Irish engagement session at Luttrellstown Castle. This week, we are continuing the stunning Ireland theme with a romantic and moody Cliffs of Moher Elopement. This editorial was a dream come true, and I’m so thrilled to share just a tiny glimpse from one of my favorite places in the world.

Romantic and Moody Cliffs of Moher Elopement

If you’re considering an elopement, I can’t think of a more romantic place than along the coast of Ireland. Ireland is so beautiful, with so much to see and do before and after the big day. Plus, if you’re eloping, you’ve got a honeymoon built right into the experience. You can share your big day with your closest and dearest or just the two of you and head off to your next adventure together.

This elopement was extra dreamy because of the misty autumn day. There’s always a gentle sea spray along the cliffs, making everything feel more whimsical. It’s a sacred place, and there’s a palpable feeling of reverence by all those visiting. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to take photos here for this special couple. Plus, the views never disappoint.

Planning Your Elopement

If you’re planning an elopement in Ireland, we are in full support. You’ll want to start by choosing your location based on what the two of you want most and, of course, the photographer of your dreams! The breathtaking beauty of the Cliffs of Moher, is just a scenic three-hour drive from Dublin. Additionally, we love the magic of The Ring of Kerry and the natural splendor of Killarney National Park, offering unforgettable backdrops for your wedding portraits.

Next, you’ll want to build the right team to ensure your day goes smoothly. We loved working with Britt Jones and her team and can’t recommend them enough.

The Rosehip and Berry also created the most stunning bouquet for our elopement. While you won’t necessarily need an entire flower takeover with an elopement, we suggest a gorgeous bouquet to make things feel extra special. We love a flower moment over here, so we encourage the extra step. They’re also really lovely to have for photos. You can find our entire list of creatives and vendors for this Irish elopement at the end of this post.

If you’re planning your elopement in Ireland, we would love to chat about your day.

We will always have a special place in our hearts for clients who opt for something a little outside the box and would be more than happy to pack our gear and head off to Ireland (or anywhere around the globe) alongside you and your beloved!
