There is nothing greater in this world than finding the people with whom we feel safe, secure and free to be ourselves. We search to find the person who loves us so unconditionally that we cannot imagine life without them by our side.”
After 15 happy years together, Jasmin shared her heartsong when she eloped to Ireland with her soul mate, Fermin. Choosing the words of Aretha Franklin and the verdant Irish landscape to express their love, the couple travelled 5000 miles for an intimate ceremony surrounded by loved ones in the quiet rustling of autumn at Lisdonagh house. This venue within the secluded autumnal woodlands of the West of Ireland provided the perfect backdrop for this micro-wedding celebration. The Wild Atlantic way holds a lot of magic places along the way but this completely private and secluded manor in County Galway is particularly special. The perfect place for Jasmine and Fermin to affirm their love for each other and elope to Ireland. In her own words…
We will walk through the valley’s of life together; just as we will stand on top of mountains together too.”
This elopement was organised by Peach Perfect Weddings who do incredible work with couples who want to have their dream Irish elopement and this day was no different. Such a special celebration of love in an intimate setting. We wanted to bring something special to this film as there were so many personal touches that we wanted to shine a light on. Whether it was Jasmine’s impromptu rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “You make me feel like – A Natural Woman”, Jasmine’s brother’s beautiful words during his role as celebrant, or the couples natural love felt every time they were together. All these elements helped us bring together a film that could only be Jasmine and Fermin’s elopement story.
