Northern Ireland has so many areas of beauty that are perfect for your engagement shoot. While lots of couples opt to go back to where they got engaged, if you’re an avid hiker there is no better place to go than the Mourne Mountains.
When I met for coffee with Diane to chat through her wedding plans, she mentioned going up the Mournes for their engagement shoot. We excitedly made plans to go up Doan about a year before they would tie the knot.
Fast forward to June this year, and we finally got a date in the diary for the hike. Despite being a seasoned hiker, I hate to admit that I missed the path and we had to go up the heathery bog instead. It was a good thing that we had all packed some changes of clothes and shoes for the shoot!
It was a beautiful summer’s evening and we were able to enjoy the Mourne Mountains surroundings mostly to ourselves. Once we had scrambled to the top, we were met with none other than Diane’s neighbour! Northern Ireland sure is a small place.
Doan is one of my favourite mountains in the Mournes Mountains – with beautiful views from every angle, it’s the perfect place for your engagement shoot. We were able to get a variety of spectacular shots on the summit before we descended to get some more along the path.
We hiked back as twilight descended and spent the rest of the walk back to the car chatting about all things work, TV and film! I can’t wait to capture their wedding next year!
If you’re not sure where to go for your engagement shoot, and want somewhere with spectacular views that is away from prying eyes, look no further than the Mourne Mountains. You’ll not be disappointed!
