Iceland Wedding | Waterfalls And Black Sand Beaches

Kili and Joanna had an amazing sunny day for their Iceland wedding! A last minute decision to elope had them booking flights, finding a dress and suit, and traveling to Iceland for the first time all within a 2 week window! On their elopement day we drove a 4×4 Land Rover Defender out into the highlands and found the perfect, private, spot for their ceremony. Afterwards we headed to a secret waterfall where they had the entire place to themselves! Then we headed to Reynisfjara black sand beach for some amazing photos and to pop champagne! It was an incredible day for the two of them- they had no regrets about spontaneously eloping in Iceland!

Iceland Wedding | Kili & Joanna

Kili and Joanna got ready at the most amazing Airbnb in Iceland! It was so secluded with panoramic views of the glaciers, mountains and even the ocean on a clear day! They had their first look outside the Airbnb and were very emotional after seeing each other for the first time. Then we loaded into the Defender and drove to their ceremony location!

We found the perfect spot for their ceremony in a sunny field. The weather in Iceland is usually never this nice but we had perfect blue skies this afternoon! If you’re planning a wedding in Iceland, the best time of year for good weather is from June through September. In June you even have the midnight sun and almost 24 hours of daylight! This makes the best time for photos in the middle of the night, but this can ensure you have more privacy during the busy season in Iceland!
