Beara Peninsula Elopement in Ireland | Molly & Glenn
I had the incredible opportunity to join Molly and Glenn on their adventurous Beara Peninsula Elopement in Ireland. They traveled all the way from Australia to celebrate their love in this wild and breathtaking landscape. They strongly believe in living ethically and sustainably, which influenced their choices for their special day.
Molly chose a sustainable wedding dress made in Sydney by Lost in Paris Bridal, which also had a sentimental connection to her family’s history in England. The dress was crafted using vintage Nottingham Lace, linking back to her father and their family’s roots near Nottingham.
The couple wanted their rings to be sustainable as well. Molly’s engagement ring was a lab grown diamond from Scéona, which possess the same qualities as real diamonds but without the negative impact of mining and the potential for exploitation. Additionally, the gold used in their rings was recycled from electronic waste, further reducing their ecological footprint.
These rings symbolised their love, vows, and commitment to prioritizing the well-being of the earth. They wanted their wedding to be not just a celebration of their relationship but also a reflection of their values.
The ceremony itself was beautifully set at the bottom of a stunning waterfall in Gleninchaquin Park. We left behind the traditional wedding setting and embarked on a journey to capture their love in an honest and authentic way in the wilds of Ireland. They took the time to read personal vows to one another along with heartfelt letters from their loved ones, who sent well wishes for their new life together.
The beauty of an elopement is that it allows couples to focus solely on each other and their love. There were no distractions, no guests, just Molly, Glenn, and the breathtaking surroundings. It was an intimate celebration that allowed them to truly connect with each other and the world around them.
Afterwards, we adventured through the peninsula, exploring the stunning landscape and taking it all in. Our first stop was the Uragh Stone circles, an incredible ancient site that emitted a mystical aura. Surrounded by the energy of the stones, Molly and Glenn embraced the enchanting vibes before we headed off into the hills.
It was an honour to witness their commitment to each other and their dedication to living harmoniously with nature.
So, if you’re considering an elopement or an adventurous wedding, I encourage you to think outside the box. Embrace the wild, let nature guide your celebration, and trust that it will be an experience you’ll never forget. Thank you so much Molly & Glenn for such an experience.
