Susannah and Elijah – Kinbane Castle

Castle Elopement Ireland


Elijah and Susannah first met in Belfast 2013 by chance as Elijah had come from California to explore Ireland. They were put in touch by a friend and after a  day trip sightseeing around Belfast, Susannah knew she wanted to marry Elijah.  Fast forward six months and after a solo trip to Ireland where they began dating, Elijah proposed on a visit to London.

Nine months later they married in Belfast surrounded by their friends and family from both California and Ireland. As Susannah explained, ‘It was all a whirlwind and very difficult with the distance, but looking back on it, it was such a precious time’.

 They described how they love going on backpacking trips and roughing it, seeing new movies and finding the coolest bars in every new place they travel.  As Susannah explained, ‘We definitely can bring the best/worst in each other at times but we know each other through and through so it’s pretty awesome doing life together’. As they had such a whirlwind celebration of their marriage, we decided to slow things down a bit and spend a relaxed evening having a laugh amongst the stunning setting of Kinbane Castle on the Antrim coast creating some awesome images.
