When Bryana & Mark reached out to me about their elopement in Donegal, I was ecstatic! They booked it only one week in advance, which is a record for me!
They opted for a town-hall ceremony with only 3 guests in person and another 3 over FaceTime as they were all in the States. Fun fact, it was 4am in the States during their elopement, so their family got up just to be there during their ceremony which is super special.
After the ceremony, we drove around Glenveagh National Park in Donegal for their photos. We stopped off at Dunlewey Church, which made for a really impressive backdrop, I stuck on some music and let them dance away to their favourite tunes as newly weds.
A local man pulled over to congratulate them and even offered us to check out the grounds of the Guinness Family's holiday home. (He was the gatekeeper!) He also gave us access to a secret field that has an incredible & unique view of Mt. Errigal.
We then stopped off at the mobile coffee & snack bar Spill the Beans for some hot chocolates to warm up before heading on the road again to find some really fun spots to run about the long stretch of road in Glenveagh National Park. It was so cold so I told Bry & Mark to run about and have fun with it! Then we popped open a bottle of champagne to celebrate!
This elopement day was so full of adventure & fun. It was unplanned but couldn't have been a more perfect day for Bryana and Mark.
