A Romantic Ceremony in a Country Church

This couple wanted to celebrate their big day in an Icelandic country church. Across Iceland, you can find these small but stunning places of worship. Many such churches were built to serve less populous countryside communities – hence their small size. However, the interiors of such churches are almost always incredibly beautiful. If you choose to be married in an Icelandic church, you will be married by a priest in a Christian ceremony.

Say “I Do” In A Candlelit Cave

Minutes from Hotel Rangá are the mysterious Caves of Hella. We know that these unique structures were built by humans; however, we do not know for certain when or why they were created. Something about their mysterious past makes the caves especially romantic with a truly memorable atmosphere. Recently opened to the public, the caves are a perfect location for an adventurous wedding. Say your vows underground surrounded by hundreds of flickering candles and create an everlasting memory.

Pledge Your Love in A Pagan Ceremony

If you are interested in a unique, Icelandic wedding experience, why not pledge your love in a pagan ceremony. Iceland’s Pagan Association – known as Ásatrúarfélagið – is a spiritual community dedicated to upholding a traditional beliefs. These include honesty, respect for all life and a reverence for nature. There is something especially beautiful about a pagan wedding ceremony. As the couple says their vows, they hold tight to an oath ring. This ring symbolizes the couples everlasting commitment to their marriage. Anyone can be wed in a pagan ceremony – check out this blog post to learn even more about pagan weddings in Iceland.

A Beautiful Winter Wedding in South Iceland

In Iceland, every season offers wedding couples a different kind of beauty. Winter weddings are particularly stunning, especially when we are lucky enough to have a layer of snow on the ground. There is nothing quite so lovely as a bride wearing white while surrounded by falling snowflakes. If you are set on a snowy wedding, we recommend booking a wedding in Iceland in the month of January or February. Even if there isn’t any snow on the ground, there is always the option of doing your wedding photo shoot atop a nearby glacier. Now that is an experience you will always remember!
