What is eloping? Elopements

The definition of an Elopement has evolved over the years and no longer means running away without telling your family and friends. Eloping is all about intentionally choosing to make your day about you and what you want. If a traditional wedding isn’t for you, then don’t do it! Many adventurous couples are choosing to elope to Iceland to say their vows as most believe that planning a traditional wedding is stressful, time consuming and a negative experience. The number 1 reason couples elope to beautiful destinations is to have a ‘just us’ experience.

Getting Married in Iceland  – “I can’t believe we just did that”!

Planning an elopement in Iceland with us means your adventure begins right from your very first call! So if you’re ready to start planning your elopement in Iceland, but aren’t sure where to begin or where you should have your ceremony, our informative guide includes a comprehensive list of locations, vendors, and tips for you that will tell you everything you need to know about eloping in Iceland along with information about marriage laws and lots more so please keep reading! We have broken down our list into different categories to help you plan your Iceland Elopement & Iceland Weddings easily.

Firstly, can I get married legally?

Iceland’s wedding requirements are very simple and straightforward; they have all religions represented there so you can get married somewhere, whatever your denomination is. Same-sex marriages have been permitted since 2010. Iceland is recognised as one of the world’s best countries for gay marriages and the LGBTQ+ culture in Iceland is flourishing. The Reykjavík Pride festival is in August each year. Iceland is a very queer welcoming destination and many gay and lesbian couples travel to Iceland to wed because they want to have a stunning destination wedding in a very welcoming and including society. It’s really easy for foreigners to get married in this country but you will still need to fill out some paperwork. You both need to be at least 18 years old and not already married. If you have been married before, you will need to provide proof of divorce. All documents must be original and need to be translated if they are not in English or any of the Scandinavian languages. To make things easier you can email the documents first and produce the original documents in person when you arrive and no later than five days before your wedding date. If the documents do not arrive within this timeframe, your marriage will be canceled.

Documents that are needed to get married in the Land of Fire & Ice

These should be sent at least 3 weeks before the Date of your Wedding.

Marriage notification (Hjónavígsluskýrsla) Birth certificates of both parties. Originals can be returned after the wedding ceremony. Certificate of marital status, issued within eight weeks before the wedding date. A divorce decree if either party is divorced. If the bride/groom is a widower, a document detailing that the deceased’s estate has been divided/finalized. Valid passports of both parties. After the ceremony has taken place, it is possible to obtain a wedding certificate in English from the National Registry,Þjóðskrá

Find out further details at the National Registry’s website. There has been a large interest in Ásatrú, the Nordic Pagan religion so you are even able to hire a certified Pagan chieftain to legally marry you here. Iceland recognises the Pagan religion, giving it the same rights as any other religion so you can have a traditional Pagan ceremony here. It can be indoors or outdoors and you can decide with your chieftain in advance. There are also priests available from all the main religions and a humanist or a judge can officiate your non-religious ceremony if you are having one.

When to elope?

SPRING

Spring is not as popular as summer to visit Iceland, but in most parts of the country the weather will be warm enough for you to explore. Visiting Iceland’s hot springs in the spring will give you more privacy and be more enjoyable.

SUMMER
Summer, June through August, is the warmest time in Iceland and the busiest. The best time to elope in Iceland if you want to hike to see some of the mountains and fjords is summer because many mountain roads are closed and snow covered until summertime. June and July are also the best months for whale watching! Summers are mild, with temperatures hovering around 15°C (59°F), but you might still have some wind or rain. Daylight is endless in the summer months with the constant midnight sun lighting up the nights between May and August.

AUTUMN

Our favourite time. The first on the mountains, Autumn Colours and the Northern Lights Season starts. Crowds start to thin out in September, so visiting now is guaranteed to give you a quieter time on your elopement day. Just don’t forget your rain jacket and comfortable Outdoor Clothes!

WINTER

Winters in Iceland are dark and snowy but from November to February when the nights are longer, you will have a much higher chance of seeing the Northern Lights and really different Elopement Pictures with frozen Waterfalls, Black Sand and Snow. Iceland Elopements

Best Places to Elope

Black Sand Beaches

Reynisfjara is a world-famous black-sand beach found on the South Coast of Iceland but there is lots of other beautiful ones worth a visit. You have Sólheimasandur, this ​is a particularly unique black sand beach, as it has become famous for the wreckage of a plane crash. Other favourites of ours are Dyrholaey, Diamond Beach, Stokksnes Beach​ and Djúpalónssandur, all great for your Iceland Elopement.

Waterfalls, Glacier Lagoons

Iceland certainly has so many magnificent waterfalls to get married next to such as Kirkjufellsfoss, Hraunfossar, Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Gullfoss, Godafoss and our personal favourite Dettifoss. Glacier Lagoons such as Jökulsárlón, Svínafellsjökull and Falljökull.

We love the Lake Mývatn area and the beautiful Volcano Landscape around. Have you ever been on a active Volcano for a hike? Myvatn has also the beautiful the Mývatn Nature Baths. A short distance away, near Námafjall Mountain, is Hverir, a hot-springs area with boiling mud pots and fumaroles.A another favourite is the Geothermal Field witha crystal Blue Lake near Reykjavik.

 We have also a really cool Cornwall Page

Don’t fancy eloping to Iceland? Then perhaps take a look at our Wild Elopements in Cornwall. We specialise in documenting run-away weddings, outdoor ceremonies, beach weddings, micro-weddings, weddings for two, vow renewals, proposals, honeymoons, handfastings and intimate weddings along the beautiful and remote Cornish coastline. Cornwall is known for some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, surfing, tin mines, pasties and ancient sites! A great place to get married or have your honeymoon

Our Style & Approach

Our Experience

We have been wedding photographers for nearly a decade! Having had the pleasure of witnessing hundreds of couples getting married all across the world. We have been specialising in photographing elopements and intimate weddings for the past 5 years and love connecting with like-minded couples that share a similar love of adventure, travel and spending time in nature.

Our Approach

Our elopement photography style is best described as untamed, free-spirited and authentic. We love capturing moments as they naturally unfold on a wedding day. The landscape motivates our work. We love the connection between couples with dramatic landscapes and seascapes as their backdrop. Our unique style draws in fellow untamed types who have also unlocked their inner wilderness.

How We Work

We work well together as a team. We each have strengths that we bring to the party, capturing quickly, and discreetly with 4 different (100% silent) cameras, 4 different focal lengths from two different perspectives. This enables us to capture near moments as well as wide angles to give you the most from your day without missing a beat. We are also able to capture video and drone footage.
