Ireland has some of the most stunning and romantic locations for you to choose from to make your intimate wedding a truly magical and meaningful occasion.

Many of Sharon’s elopement packages are also suitable for those wishing to mark a milestone-wedding anniversary or vow renewal commitment ceremony. There are many reasons why couples choose vow renewal ceremonies. Looking to honour a special time in your marriage and you want the world to know? Maybe it is a milestone anniversary and you are looking to show you’d do it all over again in a heartbeat. Or perhaps you had a small wedding and never got the opportunity to celebrate with your family and friends. Sharon can help you say “I Still Do” and to create the perfect vow renewal ceremony and reception to achieve your hallmark moment.
