The Aran Islands are three remote, tiny islands off the coast of Galway in the west of Ireland, only reachable by a rather choppy boat ride. Laura and Matt travelled all the way from Arizona in USA for their Aran Islands elopement along with 15 of their closest friends and family. They wanted their ceremony to be the main focus of their day, and it truly was incredibly unique, with an incredibly special Celtic ceremony with different sections in an old ruined church to have mini blessings, like touching a stone, putting some fabric on a tree, and dipping their hands in water for blessings – it was something incredibly special to witness. After the ceremony, they celebrated in the traditional Irish way – Irish pubs serving the best Guinness!

Vanna & Kevin’s elopement day didn’t go exactly as planned. Their elopement photographer and local expert Steph had helped them to plan an itinerary travelling east along the south coast of Iceland. However, on the morning of their elopement, the weather forecast changed dramatically. A blizzard coming from the east was on the way, which meant road closures were almost certain.

But like something from a Hollywood blockbuster movie, the storm was close on their tails as they drove to a potential new ceremony location.
