The Best Day Ever

Lisa and Shawns Celtic Cliff side wedding May 2017

Lisa got in touch with us and said she would like elope in Ireland while on a work trip to Europe. Having fallen in love with the Cliffs of Moher on a previous trip getting married there would have been a dream come true for her.

She was hoping for an intimate wedding, nothing overly fancy but loveed the idea of Shawn and her being together in Ireland when they dedicate themselves to each other.


We helped Lisa choose a special location along the Cliffs of Moher for the ceremony, organised a celebrant, put her in touch with fantastic local photographers. She choose local photographers Dave and Laurie from Awake and Dreaming

We then organised accommodation for her and Shawn in Doolin at Sea View House Doolin and made arangements for hair and makeup on her wedding day, golf for Shawn and his friends, transport, flowers, wedding cake and champagne, musicians and dinner in a local restaurant.

Eight months later Lisa and Shawn arrived in Doolin from Ottawa in Canada with four of their closest friends.

After a hearty breakfast at Sea View House in Doolin the boys headed of for a game of golf while Lisa and the girls got ready at Sea View House.

The location for the ceremony was the stunning Hags Head at the southern tip of the Cliffs of Moher. The location is on private land and we made special arangements to have a wedding ceremony there.

Lisa and Shawn arrived seperately having not seen each other from the before. While Shawn waited for his bride and his first look, a local piper was playing the uilleann pipes Irish, the national bagpipe of Ireland.

" Shawn and I were blessed with the most incredible weather for our Ireland wedding on the Cliffs of Moher!
The scenery was the most romantic backdrop we could ever imagine.
But even with that, after reading each other our vows, it was like everything faded away.
We explored parts of the Irish coast with our photographers and then hit a local pub in Doolin before having the best wedding dinner.
We finished off the night chatting with locals and listening to traditional Irish music.
I,ll say it again- Best.Day.Ever! "
