FAQ about Weddings
In Iceland, marriage is legal between any two consenting adults, regardless of gender. In order to get married legally in Iceland you will need to gather several documents. You also need to meet with the District Commissioner prior to your wedding day. The District Commissioner´s office is only open Monday through Friday between 9:00 and 3:00. You can learn more in this blog post.
Icelandic weather is notoriously unpredictable. There is even an Icelandic saying that goes, “If you don´t like the weather, just wait five minutes.” No matter the season, you should be prepared for any type of weather – from sunny skies, to rain, sleet and wind.
Are you dreaming of a winter wedding? Snow can start as early as November, though our snowiest months are usually February and March.
Planning on being married in the summer but still want that winter experience? You can always find ice and snow year-round on top of a nearby glacier. Read more about what you can expect in this blog post.
Anywhere your hearts desire (within certain reason) as long as the weather permits and the wedding officiant is willing to travel to the location. Your wedding can take place at Hotel Rangá, in an old Icelandic country church or in an ancient cave lit up with candlelight. Say yes on top of a volcano, on a glacier, a black sand beach, next to a waterfall or a geyser. We recommend that you go off the beaten track for your wedding ceremony, and we have a list of great ideas ready in case you need some inspiration.
There are four options:
- A Priest can conduct Christian ceremonies in a local country church.
- A wedding celebrant conducts humanist, non-religious ceremonies. These ceremonies have an atmosphere of dignity, joy and personal experience and allow the wedding couple the chance to exchange personalized vows.
- The District Commissioner conducts legal, non-religious ceremonies. These ceremonies are the shortest option and do not require couples to exchange personalized vows.
- The Ásatrúargoði conducts pagan ceremonies based on descriptions from the Sagas and ancient manuscripts of old Norse traditions, before the time of Christianity in Iceland. In a pagan wedding ceremony, the couple recites personalized oaths much like the vows a couple prepares for many North American ceremonies.
At Hotel Rangá, our dedicated Wedding Coordinator will assist you with your planning every step of the way. She can help you to refine your vision and offer suggestions regarding decoration, dining, ceremony location, and more.
