Places to Elope in Northern Ireland

Dunluce Castle

Probably the most dramatic place in Northern Ireland to exchange your wedding vows. Dunluce Castle is a prominent medieval castle ruin, located atop a cliff on the north coast of County Antrim. The mythical “Mermaid’s Cave” lies underneath an arched walkway which connects the castle to the mainland.

Kinbane Castle

The second of three stunning castle ruins on the north coast, Kinbane Castle is probably Northern Ireland’s best kept secret. Perched on a rocky headland that extends into the Celtic Sea, it is a breathtaking and very private place for a wedding ceremony.

Dunseverick Castle

The remains of Dunseverick Castle may not be as impressive as Dunluce or Kinbane, but it has an equally dramatic setting with a landscape that is rugged and wild. Dunseverick is thought to have been visited by Saint Patrick himself which makes it a place of significant historic importance.

Dark Hedges

Any self-respecting Game of Thrones fan will have of course heard of the Dark Hedges. It is an avenue of mythically-shaped beech trees that line the road between Armoy and Stranocum in County Antrim. Inarguably a magical backdrop for your wedding photos.

Ballintoy Harbour

Ballintoy Harbour – or “Port of Pyke on the Iron Islands” as it is known to Game of Thrones fans – is a small fishing Harbour on the north coast of County Antrim. Seemingly unimpressive at first sight, Ballintoy Harbour enjoys some of the most epic sunset views.

Giant’s Causeway

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 is a World Heritage Site.

Tollymore Forest Park

Tollymore is a grand national park of Northern Ireland spanning across over 630 hectares at the foot of Mourne mountains. Besides it’s popularity as a Game of Thrones filming location, Tollymore is a a place of beautiful panoramic scenery and a variety of Victorian follies.

White Park Bay

This three-mile long beach on the cost of Northern Ireland is a peaceful and scenic spot to exchange vows with your loved one. Sheep and cattle graze on the hills and dunes that enclose the bay.  In this secluded location, even on a busy day there is plenty of room for an intimate celebration.

Whiterocks Beach

The most notable feature of Whiterocks Beach is its collection of sedimentary rocks have been carved through centuries into a labyrinth of caves and arches. It’s been voted as one of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland, and has the iconic Dunluce Castle perched just on top of it.

Will our marriage in Northern Ireland also be legal back home? 2017-11-03T09:10:58+00:00

Absolutely! Within three days after the ceremony is over you must send the signed marriage schedule back to the Registrar (or hand it in personally). Afterwards you will be able to order a copy of your marriage certificate online. To register the marriage in your home country just take this marriage certificate to the local courthouse or other government body which is responsible for the civil register in your country.

What are the legal requirements for a wedding in Northern Ireland? 2017-11-03T09:10:58+00:00

Unlike the Republic of Ireland, the legal requirements to get married in Northern Ireland are slightly simpler. You must give the Registrar a minimum of 28 days notice before the suggested wedding date (versus 3 months in the republic of Ireland). The marriage application can be submitted by post and both yourself and the Officiant will need to sign hard copies of the application form. (There is no requirement for an in-person meeting with the Registrar). Non-UK, EEA or Swiss citizens will also need to obtain a Marriage Visa and complete an Immigration Status Statement. Proof of both these documents needs to be submitted together with your Marriage Notice Application Form.

What is the best time of year to elope to Northern Ireland in terms of weather? 2017-11-03T09:10:58+00:00

The warmest months of the year in Northern Ireland are July and August, however they are also some of the wettest. On average, the rainiest month tends to be October whilst April and May is when you can enjoy the least amount of rain. We advice to avoid eloping to Northern Ireland during the colder months between November and March. Whilst the best month to get married in Northern Ireland is probably May because it sees the least amount of rain, most hours of sunshine per day and relatively high temperatures. In choosing a date for your ceremony, don’t try to predict the weather! Go with what feels more natural. If you want to be married on the anniversary of your first kiss but it’s in January, then go for it! Rain or not, the day will be extra special.

Do we have a choice in what Flowers, Music and Wedding Cake we get? 2017-11-20T06:06:51+00:00

Absolutely! Once you’ve booked and began the elopement planning process with us we will ask you to tell you preferences for each element. For flowers, send us reference photos of bridal bouquets that you like and our florist will match this as closely as possible. For music, work directly with the Musician to establish your music preferences or choose form a list of songs recommended by us. For Wedding Cake, tell us your preferred flavour and finishing style. A reference picture also helps here!

How does the planning process look if we book our Elopement with you? 2017-11-20T06:06:23+00:00

Step 1: Choose your Ceremony Location and any desired Add-on services.

Step 2: Pick your date (ideally a few options) and schedule a quick consultation call with us to check the availability and to go over your enquiry.

Step 3: Once we talked and you are happy to proceed, you can sign the booking agreement and pay the required deposit (min. €1,000 / $1300 /£900). This deposit goes towards securing all the wedding professionals for your date.

Step 4: If you are having a legal ceremony, make contact with the Registrar to begin the paperwork process. Don’t worry, we will tell you exactly who to contact!

Step 5: Now we put you directly in touch with your assigned Officiant or Celebrant to begin writing your bespoke ceremony outline.

Step 6: Follow our ‘Next Steps’ guideline (sent to you upon receipt of the deposit) to let us know your preference for Flowers, Bride’s Hairstyle, Wedding Cake, etc.

Step 7: Two weeks before the wedding date, we will double-check everything with our team and send you a detailed Timeline of the day, together with all the contacts.

Step 8: On the big day, just relax and enjoy your stress-free Elopement! In case you need us, we will be here to sort out any issues or help otherwise.

How do we choose the vendors booked within our Elopement Package? 2017-11-20T06:06:17+00:00

We’ve already chosen the best vendors for you! When booking your elopement with Peach Perfect Weddings, you are hiring a team of established wedding professionals working together to produce the perfect wedding experience for you. Over the years we hand-picked a group of reliable suppliers for each location and have been working with these suppliers for every elopement. By always working with the same team of people are have been able to negotiate the best rates for your clients as well as ensuring that each supplier is very familiar with the location, flow of the day and their role in producing the perfect wedding day for you.  So when you book an elopement with us we will assign specific vendors to your wedding based on your requirements and ceremony location.

What does the schedule of a typical elopement day look like? 2017-11-20T06:04:23+00:00

Here is an example of what a “typical” elopement day can look like. The exact timings will vary for your elopement depending on where and when you choose to have your ceremony, your special requests etc. Remember that no two weddings are the same – so the below timeline is just to give you an idea!

10:30 – Bride’s Hair & Makeup begins (usually in your hotel room)
11:30 – Flowers delivered to your Hotel
12:00 – Photographer arrives and begins with ‘getting ready’ shots
12:15 – Groom gets dressed
12:30 – Bride gets dressed
13:00 – “First Look” photos before the ceremony (if required)
13:15 – Bride & Groom depart for ceremony (Photographer follows)
13:30 – Celebrant and Musician arrive on location and set up
13:45 – Bride & Groom arrive at ceremony location
14:00 – Ceremony begins
14:20 – Ceremony ends, followed by romantic photoshoot in the surrounding area
16:00 – Photoshoot ends and Photographer leaves
16:30 – Bride & Groom return to accommodation to freshen up
18:00 – Wedding cake delivered to restaurant
18:30 – Bride & Groom enjoy romantic dinner in restaurant

I want an outdoor ceremony, but what options are there for Plan B if it rains? 2017-11-20T06:06:07+00:00

If you’ve chosen to get married in an outdoor location, remember there is always the risk that you will get wet. An indoor ceremony backup plan usually comes at an additional cost, regardless of whether you actually end up using it or not. We advice our clients that unless the weather is particularly bad, it’s usually enough to just postpone the ceremony by about half an hour to allow the rain to pass. But in the case of expected prolonged rain, our advice is to make sure you book your wedding night accommodation at a nice hotel that has a suitable room (usually a communal area of the hotel or a dedicated function room) where you can hold the ceremony as a last resort.

Are your Elopement Packages suitable for Vow Renewals and Small Weddings? 2017-11-12T03:35:44+00:00

Yes! Typically a vow renewal will require all, or almost all, of the same vendors as an elopement but the content of the ceremony will be adapted. The same is true for small and intimate weddings. Our elopement packages are suitable for groups of approximately up to 20 people. If you are expecting significantly more than 20 guests, please contact us for a bespoke quote.

What payment methods do you accept? 2018-03-22T09:09:44+00:00

We take payments in Euros (€) and British Pounds (£). Payment can be sent by direct bank transfer (international wire transfer) or paid via Credit Card or PayPal. Payments made by Credit Card and PayPal are subject to a 3% transaction fee.

However, we also understand that majority of our clients operate in other currencies.  For this reason, when converting currency, we highly recommend skipping the high transfer fees levied by the banks and using a reputable third party international money transfer service such as Transferwise.

How much deposit is required to book an Elopement with you? 2017-12-07T16:23:01+00:00

The deposit is calculated based on how far in advance you book with us and whether you opt for any Add-ons to the basic package. The minimum deposit is €1,000 or 25% of the total package, whichever is higher.  The closer you book to the wedding date, the higher your deposit will be. For example, if the lead-up time to your elopement is shorter than 6 months, we will require a 50% deposit at the time of booking. Whilst couples booking over 12 months in advance can secure their date with us with a 25% down payment.

Do you offer a payment plan for the Elopement Package? 2017-11-20T06:05:34+00:00

Yes! We take payment in 2, 3 or 4 equal instalments split into a deposit at time of booking, 2nd payment at 12 months before, 3rd payment at 6 months before and balance at 30 days before the wedding. The number of instalments applicable to you will depend on how far in advance you book your Elopement Package with us.

Will you be there in-person on the day of our Elopement? 2017-11-11T09:28:00+00:00

Unless you have specifically requested the On-the-Day Coordination Add-on to your elopement package, the day runs without an ‘orchestrator’. Due to the intimate nature of elopements, we know from experience that having too many people around you can spoil the delicate nature of this private moment. However, we are always available on the phone to fix any (highly unlikely) issues!

Can we customise the ceremony and write our own vows? 2017-11-20T06:04:28+00:00

Yes! In the case of all except Civil ceremonies performed by the Registrar and traditional Catholic ceremonies you can customise your ceremony wording. You can write and say your own vows in all types of ceremonies.

Do we need to submit any paperwork for a Symbolic wedding ceremony? 2017-11-20T06:04:33+00:00

No, when doing a Symbolic (i.e. non legally-binding ceremony) there are no legal requirements to follow!

Do you help us write the ceremony? 2017-11-03T09:11:50+00:00

Yes, the Officiant or Celebrant assigned to your wedding will reach out to you directly and work with you to personalise the ceremony.

A few testimonials from couples who eloped with us.

We lost our luggage and Yana worked beyond her typical duties to help us figure out how to replace our belongings (wedding decor and outfits!). Also, the contract was very customizable and even afterward paying when I opted out of certain things she refunded immediately the differences.

Lauren & Michael, From USA

Yana with Peach Perfect Weddings was fantastic!! I was so nervous about having a destination Wedding in Ireland and not being able to see and touch everything but Yana made it easy! She was easily accessible via WhatsApp and answered my millions of questions. We did a package that included our ceremony and accommodations at Fanningstown Castle which I couldn’t be happier with. The castle was absolutely gorgeous and Mary was fantastic. The day of the wedding our hair and make up people arrived on time and made us all look and feel beautiful!
