Local Iceland weddings and elopement photographer

Diary of a local wedding photographer gal in Iceland.

Get a little more insight into the awesome couples that come to Iceland to get married!

José & Tim say I do in Iceland!

José & Tim came over to Iceland to tie the knot. I’m so incredibly happy they did and that I got the chance to meet them. Their love is so real that everyone got infected and just immediately got invested in making their day the best.

Here it is in their own words:

“After 15 years together my partner and I decided to get married. We knew we didn't want a courthouse elopement, but also didn't want a big stressful wedding (or even a small stressful wedding!). "Why don't we get married in Iceland?". The natural beauty and the unspoiled, undeveloped vistas called to us. We found Pink Iceland and instantly felt comfortable and in very capable hands. They suggested the lava fields at Buðir and we put total faith in their suggestions. And it was the most stunning vista and sense of natural beauty. It was a day that couldn't decide whether to rain or shine or drizzle and it produced the most amazing rainbows everywhere we went. Our photographer, Kristín María, is an artist with an incredible eye for light and depth and perspective. After the ceremony we had crowberries picked from the lava fields, chocolate, little Iceland pastries and prosecco, travelled around the peninsula finding other gorgeous spots for photographs and sightseeing. We finally came to our original request site, which was overrun with tourists and mucky from the rain and mud and we could not have been more relieved that Pink Iceland had gently steered us away from it. And that's the secret - they provide an experience, not just a service. We still haven't woken up from our Icelandic dream.”

After our day together, they gifted me with a beautiful book, a collection of Maya Angelou’s work. I’ll let her send you off:

“We are here to love each other. That is why you are alive. That is what life is for.”
