Natalie and Justin travelled over from Canada for their dream Dunluce castle elopement on the North Antrim coast right here in Northern Ireland. N&J stayed at The  Bushmills Inn which is only about 5 minutes away. They also had a first look in the private garden. I absolutely love the cosy atmosphere in the old pub there too. They had time before the ceremony to have a pint of Guinness and a few photos. These are all the reasons why I love to shoot elopements. Everything is so relaxed and intimate.

It’s hard to beat Dunluce Castle for the romance. What a backdrop. We are so lucky here in Northern Ireland to have such incredible locations for elopements. It was so lovely to work with Waterlily Weddings on this one. You are in safe hands if Michelle and team are helping you plan your Irish wedding! Natalie’s stunning bouquet was from local florist –  The Stables Flower Company.  I always love to see what Jil creates. Sean from Timeless Productions was there for the video. He is always an absolute pleasure to team up with.

The highlight was Natalie and Justin’s ceremony. Listening to them make their vows to each other with the sound of the crashing waves below and the seabirds overhead. Wrapped in the presence of love and nature. Pure magic.
