Donegal has got to be the most beautiful county in all of Ireland. There’s a whole host of hidden gems around every corner. And there are lots of corners, twists and bends along its wonderfully ragged coastline.
Meagan and Alec travelled all the way from the United States to the West coast of Ireland for this intimate elopement in the middle of our Summer. The couple had based themselves at Finn Lough, Fermanagh. Earlier that afternoon they had rowed out onto Lower Lough Erne to say their vows to one another. Now even though I’m not much of a swimmer I would definitely have risked it to capture such a special moment.
We caught up with them afterwards to make the hop, skip and jump to the Donegal coast. Our first stop was St John’s Point. This remote little peninsula was the perfect place to explore, and even though Meagan & Alec were finely dressed, they were the most willing couple to adventure around the cracks and crags with. More barefoot brides please!
Onwards and upwards to Slieve League. With the setting sun sinking into the Atlantic Ocean at an alarming rate we managed a few more magical moments with Meagan and her beau.
Lots of greenery and scenery abounding, the odd friendly sheep and even time to enjoy a tin of Guinness at the end, this actually couldn’t have been more quintessentially Irish.
Meagan & Alec thank you for being so much fun and such a willing couple. Here’s to your future together!
