A Wintery Elopement in Iceland


Elope in Iceland

December 20, 2023

Lacie had never been to Iceland but had a vision about getting married on the black sand beach there before she and John were even engaged. She had a tattoo with the coordinates of the beach tattooed on her back just before her wedding! They were married on a stormy and snowy January day. She wore two dresses - one white and one black - and they travelled around from the black sand beach to the snowy mountains and a dramatic waterfall.

Molly and Jackson knew soon after they started dating that they didn’t want a ‘regular’ wedding. Attending a bunch of friends’ weddings together in 2014 (before they were engaged!) solidified in their minds what they did and didn’t want. They decided then and there that when it came to their turn to get hitched, they didn’t want to pick out tablecloths or plan a seating chart. Instead, they wanted an adventure!

Linsey and Andrew have a mutual love of black and vintage as well as moody, dramatic landscapes. They wanted their wedding day to encompass all these things so it truly represent them. They also wanted their day to just be about them, so they decided to elope. They decided not to tell anyone about the wedding beforehand and thought the isolated landscape of Iceland was the perfect place However there were actually three people involved because Linsey was pregnant!

Intimate Icelandic Elopement: Sophia & James



May 27, 2013

There's something so incredibly romantic about eloping. Running off, declaring your undying forever love and completely forgoing tradition to do something just for the two of you. Well, as soon as I laid eyes on Sophia & James' wedding, posted in a private photographer's group that I'm a member of with the caption "I wish I shot this wedding. I think this is just so beautiful. In fact it's probably one of the most stunning weddings I've seen in a while..." I just knew I had to feature it. Thankfully wedding photographers Nordica Photography had the same idea because as soon as I asked for it they said they were literally about to submit it! Oh when the heavens collide...

Icelandic Elopement: Dean & Lindsay


December 17, 2012

With all the detail and theme obsessions that come with the wedding blogging territory, sometimes it's just really awesome to get a super simple and fuss-free wedding in my inbox. So when Dean & Lindsay's Icelandic elopement was sent my way, I couldn't wait to feature it. I've said it before and undoubtedly I'll say it again, but honestly, this is what it's all about people - two people in love saying "I will love you forever". Spending just $1200, Dean & Lindsay flew to Iceland from the US and were married at Solfar (Sun Voyager) a sculpture located by Sæbraut, by the sea in the centre of Reykjavík
