Ireland is a magical country, perfect for eloping. It’s off the beaten path and unique in comparison to popular elopement destinations (like Iceland).  There are so many gorgeous areas where you can have a beautiful private ceremony without the crowds. It can also be a great vacation for your friends and family to join the celebration.

What is the best time of year to elope in Ireland?

The weather in Ireland can be unpredictable no matter what time of year you choose to elope. However, if you’d like to increase your chances of warmer temperatures and slightly less rain, July, August, and September are your best bet. 

A Winter or Spring elopement in Ireland is also possible of course, but you’ll want to adjust your plans and expectations accordingly. Go for cozy cottage vibes by renting a relaxing Airbnb near the sea or in the countryside. Go for a beer in a local pub together and be extra flexible so you can be ready at a moment’s notice to run outside when the weather breaks. 

Ireland Wedding Videographers

Video is one of the best ways to relive your elopement. I love working together with videographers on the day of your elopement. We work together to create a plan for how we shoot the day, staying out of each other’s way and not interfering with how your elopement unfolds. I prefer to work with videographers who don’t overly script and interfere with the natural events of the day.
