Elope at the Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland and step into your own fairy tale. The intertwining branches create this magical, tunnel-like atmosphere that’s just begging to be explored. The mysterious and enchanting avenue of beech trees is like nature’s own cathedral!
It’s a must-see for nature lovers, photographers, and anyone who appreciates a touch of mystique.
It gained some fame as a filming location for popular TV show—Game of Thrones. So, you can channel your inner fantasy hero while strolling through this atmospheric corridor of trees.
The Dark Hedges was at the top of Kathleen and Cody’s list of places to visit during their Ireland elopement day.
Kathleen chose a stunning maroon long-sleeved elopement dress with a train that flowed behind her as she explored the stunning landscape. Doesn’t she look amazing!?
They had a beautiful intimate ceremony, exchanging vows and rings at Dunluce Castle and went on to discover some stunning locations on the North Coast.
The last stop of their elopement adventure was exploring the Dark Hedges. While the sun set, they were surrounded by the ancient, gnarled trees, with their twisted branches.
It was a magical elopement day that truly belongs in its own fantasy novel. I was overjoyed to photograph their elopement adventure.
