They said their vows in a private spot off the side of the road with a view of the glacier and mountains in the background. It’s crazy how beautiful everywhere in Iceland is- you’ll want to stop every mile to take in the views! After they were married we popped champagne to celebrate!

Afterwards we headed to diamond beach, where L & D wandered around playing with pieces of glacial ice. We had a quick stop to the famous fish & chips food truck located next to the glacial lagoon- probably the best fish & chips in Iceland!

The highlight of the day was cresting a hill to see the massive icebergs floating in the glacial lagoon below! Even with the pouring rain and freezing winds, L & D had an incredible time exploring the lagoon and enjoying being married! If you want to add some adventure to your day, consider adding on a zodiac boat tour through the lagoon or even an ice cave tour!

  1. […] Though not a glacier itself, the Jökulsárlón lagoon is the result of glacial runoff and chunks of glacial ice that float through the lagoon to the black sand beach on the Atlantic. The ice washes onto shore, giving it an almost diamond look and that’s where the beach gets its namesake – Diamond Beach! You can have your ceremony on the shores of the Atlantic at Diamond Beach, or you can even take a boat out into the lagoon or ice caves to get a closer look! Look out for the seabirds and seals that like to hang around the ice structures, they make great witnesses to your wedding. Check out Leah & Darin’s Glacier Lagoon Elopement! […]
