Elope at the Giants Causeway and you will have a fascinating experience. The Giant’s Causeway is a unique and stunning natural geological formation located on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland, near the town of Bushmills in County Antrim. It is renowned for its thousands of interlocking hexagonal basalt columns, which resemble stepping stones and create a visually striking and surreal landscape including the basalt cliffs, sea caves, and more unique rock formations.
The Giant’s Causeway was formed by volcanic activity around 50 to 60 million years ago. Lava from volcanic eruptions rapidly cooled and solidified, creating the distinctive hexagonal columns. These columns are remarkably uniform in size and shape, and they fit together like puzzle pieces, creating a distinctive pattern that is a result of the cooling and cracking of the lava flows.
Folklore is an interesting part of the Irish culture. We grew up learning about the legendary giant Finn McCool, who was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner. To reach Benandonner, Finn McCool built the causeway across the North Channel to Scotland.
The area around the Giant’s Causeway offers scenic coastal walks with breathtaking views of the North Atlantic Ocean. One of the popular walks is the Causeway Coast Path, which extends for many miles along the coastline.
This iconic location will provide a breathtaking backdrop for your special day.
Stefani and Colin chose to elope at The Giants Causeway with a small group of family and closest friends. They had their first look in an enchanting forest.
They shared their vows and rings at Dunluce Castle to the sound of a local harp player. The beautiful ceremony was designed by Catherine to reflect Stefani and Colin’s relationship. The group had a whiskey toast to the past, present and future, to friends here and friends afar.
As the sun set, Stefani and Colin explored the magical Giant’s Causeway to end their amazing day.
