My fiancé and I will be traveling from Portland, Oregon to Ireland, in October, with 12-16 other friends and family members to have a very quiet, intimate but brief outdoor wedding ceremony. We will be traveling with someone ordained and legal to marry us (recognized by the US), so legalities are taken care of. What we need to nail down is where, exactly, we want this to occur.
Our ideal spot is a dramatic cliff setting, overlooking the ocean (or some beautiful body of water) with some kind of architectural structure nearby. Sheep would be nice to cap off authenticism but not necessary ;)
What we don’t want is tourists around so the main cliffs (IE: Cliffs of Moher) are out.
The regions of the country we have been interested in are the West and Southwest areas, primarily Kerry, Limerick and Clare.
If the location has a small village or an authentic B&B/Lodge/place to stay nearby, that’s also a big bonus, however, we do have Sawday's Special Places to Stay (Ireland) book, so we can probably find something worthwhile nearby. Nailing down where to be married is first.
Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks everyone!Edited: 20 January 2011, 19:59
