Eloping to Ireland..Are you ready for an Irish adventure?

There is nothing quite like an Irish Wedding (except maybe an Irish funeral!). Ireland is full of fantastic landscapes steeped in history, ancient traditions and of course the famous Irish craic!

Picture it….

You are standing at the shore of a lake, in the middle of a valley carved out by glaciers thousands of years ago. You are surrounded by trees and the hills are your backdrop.  There is a drizzle of rain, or a ‘soft day’ as we say here in Ireland. Any second now it could rain cats and dogs or the sun could come out, you just never know! 

You are holding hands with the person you love more than anything else in the world. Your person! The one you have come on this Irish adventure with.  And your heart is filled with happiness……

Eloping to Ireland is the perfect choice for couples looking for an adventure together, or for those who just do not want the hassle of organising a big wedding day.  Whether it is just the two of you, or even if some friends and family come along, there is something to suit everyone. We have it all here! 

From the Wild Atlantic Way, to the Ancient East, we have landscapes of such natural beauty, it will take your breath away.  Add in some ancient Celtic traditions and you have an elopement ceremony like no other!

We got married in Wicklow last September and let me tell you, Yvonne is amazing at what she does!!! She was the icing on the cake that was a really fun day. Very easy to deal with and provided lots of fun recommendations for different elements we could add to our ceremony. Yvonne is an excellent writer and her words meant a lot to us.

Yvonne was the perfect addition to our wedding and helped make it such a special day! She provided excellent guidance and was easy to coordinate with despite us living in Canada while we were planning the wedding. The ceremony she orchestrated was a perfect balance of sentimental and fun. I could not have asked for anyone better to be the celebrant at our small cliff-side ceremony!
