Cliffs of Moher Elopement
“It’s not very often I am left speechless after a wedding, but I knew when I finished this wedding that I would never be able to find the right words to explain how so very special, romantic and AMAZING this wedding was. One of the greatest gifts that my job brings is always when my clients turn into my friends and this is one of those times when I know that forever long more Kayleen & Joseph would always have had an impact on my life!
From the second I got their email, I was so excited to be involved in capturing their adventure to Ireland and it was one of the most special weddings I have ever had the privilege of shooting.
Kayleen & Joseph, a young couple all the way from Texas chose to make the adventure and elope to Ireland to get married. They told me they wanted an adventure and that the Cliffs of Moher was the place they wanted to get married. I was so happy to help them plan their day.
I met them on the eve of their wedding to finally say hello face to face and we went on tour of the Burren to show them how beautiful the West Coast of Ireland really is. The winds bellowing from the Atlantic slightly changed out plans for the ceremony but thats the joy of eloping to Ireland, the Irish weather is so unpredictable but Kayleen and Joseph took it in their stride and totally embraced the Irish Elements. The wind was strong at the cliffs and the downpour of rain at the end of the day really gave Kayleen & Joseph a taste of how unpredictable the weather can be.
Tuesday, Wedding day, started off with blue skies and the sun was high in the sky and Kayleen & Josephs spirits were higher than ever. Looking back on the morning, I know they were both missing their families, which reminds me of their bravery to follow their hearts and fly halfway across of world to get married just the way they wanted. I have such admiration for these two! It was great working with Siobhan O Doherty Make up Artist on the morning of the wedding too.
We set off to find the perfect location in an old abandoned church along the west coast. A teary eyed, emotional first look took place at the first corner of the ruined church and I could see the love they had for each other the second they glanced at each other that afternoon.
It was such a beautiful ceremony with lots of tears (happy tears that is) , smiles, handfasting and a whole lot of love and emotion. Victor, did an excellent job as celebrant.
We set off around the rugged, but spectacular Burren Landscape! We ended the day at the majestic Cliffs of Moher and the winds were the strongest I have ever felt there , but as always Kayleen and Joseph braved the elements and ended their day in EPIC form- 70 KMH winds on the edge of Ireland and completely in love.
All day I was in such awe of this amazing couple, the love they shared for each other and their sense of adventure really inspired me. I will forever be beyond grateful to Kayleen and Joseph for trusting me, and for reminding me how special and rare it is to find someone you love. I am grateful to have met them and will forever be inspired by them!”
