Combination honeymoon and wedding in Iceland

Not only does Iceland offers the most photogenic backdrop for any wedding but it also provides a magical setting for a honeymoon. Many couples combine destination wedding ceremonies with romantic, yet, adventure-packed honeymoons. There are many airline providers making regular flights to Reykjavik so couples from around the globe are choosing Iceland for their special day.

Hotel Rangá wedding coordinator

The key to organizing a wedding in Iceland is to designate a wedding planner. It’s also a good idea to select a hotel  that specializes in hosting weddings for overseas guests. There are some legal requirements that are unique to Iceland. What’s more, it is important to plan your wedding well in advance.

Hotel Rangá’s wedding coordinator makes getting married in Iceland simple. There are many venue choices for the ceremony located within a short drive of Hotel Rangá, each of which offers wonderful opportunities for photography.

Getting married in an Icelandic Church

For religious ceremonies, Oddi Church stands just ten minutes from Hotel Rangá. In fact, Oddi Church is one of the oldest church sites in Iceland. The current church dates back to 1924 and offers an intimate and romantic setting with a panoramic landscape.

An outdoor wedding ceremony

A popular outdoor venue is Gluggafoss which lies in a hidden valley called Fljótshlíð. Fljótshlíð was the home of Gunnar in Hlíðarendi, one of the most memorable characters in Njáls Saga, a famous historic Icelandic Saga.

Gluggafoss is unique for its three arches, which look like windows formed from water falling down the soft cliffs. From Gluggafoss there are beautiful views over the Eyjafjallajökull Glacier.

Weddings by The Rangá River

Another natural location is on the banks of the River Rangá, just a few steps from the hotel. The River Rangá offers a tranquil setting in the heart of the countryside with stunning views of the Mt. Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull, Þríhyrningur (an extinct volcano) and the Westman Islands in the distance.
