Destination Elopement Wedding

Your elopement matters. And so do your memories.

When the world tells you big is best and tradition is the only way, eloping takes courage and determination. You know a traditional wedding isn’t for you – choosing instead to wander on the road less travelled, towards a future for ‘just us two’. This is the beginning of the rest of your lives – a start as you mean to go on, choosing each other above all else. You want, and deserve, to have those most magical moments frozen in time and bottled forever.

But choosing the right photographer is easier said than done. You need someone who will share your bold and uncompromising vision. One that will understand and capture your unique love story for all that it is – not one that will force you into a box you’ve been intent on escaping from. Your elopement is a testament to your love. You deserve it documented in a way that feels authentic to you.

Luckily, you’re in the right place.

Your elopement matters to you, so it matters to us too

Speak a thousand words through beautifully intimate elopement photography.

Here's how...

Destination Elopement Wedding

A vision as bold as yours

From the day you decided to make your love official, you’ve amassed many brave and wonderful ideas, and would love to make them a reality. At Soul Sourced, we are firm believers that anything is possible – especially with the right support from people who understand and believe in your vision. We can introduce you to an extensive list of some of the most stunning elopement destinations in Ireland and around the world. The sky really is the limit. Share your dream, and we can help to breathe life into it for you.

T&T146

An authentic
connection

To truly capture the love you and your partner share, you need to feel connected and safe in the hands of your photographer. Without trust and a genuine connection, it can feel like an intrusion – leaving you feeling uncomfortable and a world away from the loved-up bubble you deserve. Your photographer should make time stand still for you – an invisible force empowering you to tune into each other, not the camera lens. That’s why at Soul Sourced, we build real relationships with clients, so you truly feel at ease. It’s from there that we capture your most authentic emotional moments.

V&J217

Hassle-free
planning

Your dream elopement wedding should be everything you dreamed of and more. But they can be tricky to plan – especially if you’re not familiar with the local area or lack contacts that can help you. At Soul Sourced, we believe your day should be about enjoying each other and the love you share – not worrying about the intricacies of the day (isn’t that what eloping is all about?) That’s why we act as a complete guide, supporting you with every last detail of your intimate wedding so you can enjoy your day hassle-free, with eyes for only each other.

Want a wedding as unique as you are? We get it.

Your wedding day should be a day about you as a couple, celebrating what matters most – your love and unparalleled connection. But so often the focus can shift to other things that take away from that. Before you know it, you’ve spent the majority of the day thinking about your guests and how they feel. But what about you? How do you feel? Is this really what you thought it would be? You shouldn’t have to spend the most special day of your life hosting and catering to others. Your love shouldn’t get lost amongst the noise.

At Soul Sourced we understand the challenges couples like you face when it comes to getting the day they really want. We’ve helped co-ordinate weddings in some of Galway’s finest hotels and have seen first hand bride after bride overwhelmed and reduced to tears by the pressure of the day.

Our lead photographer, Kate, knows how it feels to prioritise other people’s visions over your own after doing this herself for her big day. It’s this experience that led her to specialise in elopement and couples photography in Ireland and around the world.

We know there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to capturing the most precious moments of your life on camera, which is why we take the time to build a genuine connection with you as a couple – so we fully understand your love story and capture the magnitude of this most wonderful occasion in a way that feels true to you and your bold vision.

Susies & Ben's Story

Choosing Kate for our wedding photographer was the easiest wedding decision we made!
From first viewing Kate's work, we knew her style was for us! It was so different to the structured wedding photos we had seen so much of before. It was so refreshing to see a more relaxed and creative style. We loved the natural romance that emanated from her photographs!

From our first video call with Kate, our hearts were set. She is such a warm, loving and reassuring person! Kate was amazing amongst the constant changing covid restrictions we had to face right up to the day of the wedding. She really went above and beyond to keep our spirits up in the lead up to the wedding and built the excitement for us!
On the wedding day meeting, Kate for the first time in person was like meeting a well-known friend. 

Kate could not do enough for us, she was a wedding coordinator, friend, counsellor and photographer all rolled into one! She was so attentive to all the guests keeping everyone entertained and at ease and she was completely tuned in to us as a couple and what we wanted to achieve for our wedding day. We truly treasure the photographs of our day as they tell a story, our story, and in such a visually truthful way.

Her positivity and pure excitement for both her work and for her couples is what makes her so magic and this comes across in her photography.

As a couples and elopement photographer, I use mood boards to create concepts for styled shoots. I highly recommend it 🙌🏻 It will help you to show your vision in an aesthetic and cohesive theme to other vendors and get them on board with your projects👌🏻📸 
Photographers! What’s your take? Do you use mood boards or prefer another tool?

Capture Your Unique Love With Powerfully Authentic Photography
Couples photography can get a bad rep. Overly contrived, sickly sweet, and inauthentic images can feel like the norm, and when that’s not you, you might assume couples photography isn’t for you either. But cringey couple shots that make you squirm when you look at them don’t have to be your reality. You can get natural, authentic images that capture you and your partner truthfully, with the right photographer.
At Soul Sourced we help you feel at ease in front of the lens, because only then will your true personalities and the connection you share shine through. Far from an awkward intrusion, our Founder and lead photographer, Kate, takes the time to get to know you as a couple, helping you to see her as a welcome addition - a friend in the background, capturing those intimate yet powerful moments in a way that feels comfortable for you🧡

“Keep taking time for yourself until you are you again.” —Lalah Delia 
LET’S TALK ABOUT SELF CARE 
If you’re like most of us, your time is mostly filled with taking care of everything and everyone but yourself. You get to the tail end of your day to relax but you either use your time to take care of things at home, numb yourself with bad TV that doesn’t require much thought, or drop on the bed, lay your head and fall asleep in a stressful state—only to do it all again the next day. Whether you’re working towards that promotion, a degree balancing a career and motherhood—or even a career and a personal life—, recognize that self-care requires a balance between work you and/or mom and the rest of you. 
.
Our minds do not have the capacity to run at high-speed 24/7, which is why having a proper amount of sleep is so important to restore energy. But sleeping should not be our only form of self-care—it’s a necessity on its own. 
Like sleeping, eating, and breathing, self-care should be a priority rather than something we push to the bottom of our to-do list. 
Think about this for a minute:
Have you taken a break this week to unwind⁉️
How much did you smile or laugh today⁉️
When was the last time you took a day to yourself⁉️
If you answered “no”, “not at all” or “I don’t remember” to any of these questions, it’s time to start taking care of yourself and dedicating time to rejuvenating your mind, body, and soul. 
.
Trying to take time to be alone is the easiest way to reset your mind. Take a walk by yourself, go shopping or eat a meal solo or even just meditate alone for a few minutes. However you practice your me-time, make sure that you are disconnecting from everything else for a moment.
My childhood memories are filled with little paradises, always vibrant with nature, always empty of people. 
Being near the water always makes me calm and happy. 
Trips to a beach are my favourite way of self care 🌊 
.
How about you? What’s your favourite way of self care?

HIGH RES-15

Perceptions Of 'Eloping' Have Moved On...

Elopements today are a far cry from the historical notion of sneaking off in secret to get wed.

Elopement weddings are now a popular way for couples to express themselves and get the wedding they've always dreamed of – one that is authentic to them - not just 'what's expected'.

Elopements are now seen as smaller weddings, sometimes with just a few family and friends, but often with only the couple present. They offer a sense of liberation from the confinements and anxieties that people can associate with planning a large traditional wedding day.

And the best bit? Your elopement options really are endless - there's no 'should do' only 'want to do' with the ability to focus entirely on what feels right for you as a couple. At Soul Sourced, we can help you design your own intimate and stress-free adventure to suit your unique personalities. No request is too big or too small - we're here for you through it all, ensuring every detail of your day is considered, whether you marry in the middle of a tropical jungle or on the edge of the ocean.
