Giant’s Causeway is a natural wonder that’s formed of interlocking, mostly hexagonal-shaped, basalt columns left behind after an ancient volcanic eruption some 60 millions years ago. One of the only such rock formations on earth, it’s been a World Heritage Site since 1986. And yes, you can get married at a natural wonder like this in Northern Ireland. The sea and the extraordinary landscape are all waiting for your exchange of vows in county Antrim’s best wedding location.
Don’t feel like taking a chance on the unpredictable Irish weather? No problem! Host your ceremony at the Giant’s Causeway Hotel and enjoy your post-ceremony photoshoot on the basalt columns with a peace of mind. Even when it looks like an off the beaten path location, you’ll definitely have a Plan B at the Giant’s Causeway Hotel. If the weather won’t cooperate on the day of your wedding, you can either delay it for an hour and wait for the rain to stop or choose one of the hotel’s classy indoor locations for a short ceremony.
After which, you’ll have the whole day to pose anywhere in the Giant Causeway. From the lowest part to the highest, this natural wonder offers a one-in-a-million setting for your wedding photos. It sure is perfect for an elopement because the causeway gets narrower as you reach the top. Talk about a dreamy setting to a wedding for two. Imagine having your ceremony at this highest point of the causeway with the giant mountains as your backdrop. That’s what awaits you when you get married at a natural wonder.
We believe couples would be willing to wait until the rain stops only to exchange vows at this exact spot. Should you choose to get married at a natural wonder like this, make the most out of it and choose the best spot to do it. That’s the peak of the Causeway, in our opinion. But even when you’re afraid of heights, the foot of this natural wonder is still a sight to behold. It offers a perfect backdrop of the ocean while the hexagonal patterns can still be seen in your photos.
After an hour or more of photo shoot, you can head on to any of the decent dining places within the area, one of which is Causeway Hotel’s own restaurant. As one of the venue options in Peach Perfect Wedding’s intimate Northern Ireland wedding packages, we can help you arrange everything from accommodation to dinner reservations. We can even connect you to local wedding vendors who can make your dream destination elopement come true.
