Getting married on a dramatic Irish cliffside with the backdrop of Dunluce Castle might seem like the wedding of your wildest dreams... but we're here to tell you it's real. Not only that, but it was followed by a sunset shoot on the beach with pizza, speeches and drinks. Did someone say perfect wedding? The breathtaking scenery, violinist and wild floral arrangements made this intimate 12 guest affair even more romantic than we thought possible. (We're talking office romance to happily ever after. We know. Wipe away those happy tears). Beth and Phil, you've really blown us away this time. And you really don't want to miss their first dance atop the cliffs captured by Recommended supplier Tiffany Gage Photography...

Intimate wedding on Irish clifftop overlooking Dunluce Castle ruins.

It was really special to get married in such an intimate setting, and in such a natural environment. The setting was spectacular! As huge outdoor lovers, getting to spend our wedding day on a beautiful cliffside overlooking Dunluce Castle and on the beach meant we were at our most comfortable.

Beth & Phil


Laid back but elegant was the theme of the day, with a wild and natural vibe that tied it all together. Beth and Phil opted for simple floor matting and wooden benches so as not to distract from the incredible landscape. The florals from Victoriana added an elegant and personal touch, as she was the florist for Beth's mothers wedding too. We also couldn't mention style without a shoutout to Beth's beautiful wedding outfit. The gorgeous lace top with capped sleeves and button detailing was elegance at its best. Paired with an intricate veil that was literally flying in the wind, she was a vision worthy of the Dunluce Castle clifftop.


From the ruins of Dunluce Castle to the beach, this was a spectacular ceremony from start to finish. Beth's second cousin Gráinne played the violin during the intimate ceremony. She then performed a beautiful rendition of Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' for their first dance on the cliffside. Dreamy or what!? They had lovely bible readings and finished the ceremony with celebratory cake and champagne whilst listening to speeches. The sun shone, the love was flowing and everyone was smiling from ear to ear. All we're saying is, next person to have an Irish cliffside wedding please don't forget our invite...

Bringing their joint love of the outdoors into their wedding made Beth and Phil's day unique, beautiful and perfectly them.

If we had any advice for couples planning their wedding it would be: Think long and hard about what will make the day special for you as a couple. Focus your energy on this aspect of the day to ensure it doesn't get lost.
