Beach Elopement in Iceland by Your Adventure Wedding & Photos By Miss Ann
Today we’re back in one of my favourite wedding locations – and yours, judging by the recent influx of Iceland brides who’ve been in touch to share their wedding planning questions and conundrums. It seems that the issue couples struggle most with, is understanding the often confusing requirements surrounding the legalities of marrying in Iceland. Please rest assured that there is a blog post specifically discussing this issue on its way to you very soon! In the mean time however, the best advice I could give you would be to work with an experienced wedding planner who can take this entire task out of your hands and arrange all of the paperwork on your behalf. Hurrah, yes!??
The second piece of advice I would give to Iceland brides and grooms is to just go with the flow on your wedding day. It’s one of the most fickle climates on earth and as you’re about to see, even a ‘summer’ wedding certainly does not guarantee blue skies. Not that it matters of course, when gloomy weather looks as good as this . . .
From the Wedding Planner/Photographer: On Thursday, August 27th, 2015 I had the honor of planning and photographing an idyllic Icelandic elopement for a super sweet couple who hail from Oklahoma. Please allow me to introduce you to Sarah + Sean! Right from the very beginning of contacting me, Sarah let me know that as a couple they value: Travel & Adventure. …heck yes, our ideal clients! They chose to forgo a local wedding in their home state so they could turn their focus fully to each other and go on an adventurous day the two of them would remember forever. Can I get an “Awwww” folks?! Serious sweetness. Their intentions were pure, passionate, and they were absolutely at home in the dramatic Icelandic landscape during their elopement adventure. Don’t be fooled by the captivating blue skies in some of these pictures … Their summer Iceland wedding day went like this: Drizzle -> Rain -> Downpour of Rain -> Overcast -> Partly Sunny -> Steady Light Rain -> Blue Skies -> Cloudy -> Rain. Sounds about right for a 17 hour adventure wedding day in Iceland! But don’t worry, we have THE BEST clients! …because these two just embraced and rolled with the unpredictability as you will see =)
