Ashley is American, Kevin is from Scotland, and they met in Iceland 4 years ago on a Northern Lights tour. Since then, they have been paired together. The North American and Europe tectonic plates meet in Iceland, and, they met in Iceland being from each location so it was only fitting they got married in Iceland, too. Kevin got his kilt made from his family Tartan custom for the wedding. Ashley got a ‘just eloped’ custom pained faux leather jacket. They even got some cute details such as coffee mugs and ring box. For once I think the groom’s accessories beat the brides! They got married in the botanic gardens in Reykjavik before we took off to explore the Icelandic nature that they fell in love in. At one point I got completely soaked from some waves as a MASSIVE storm was rolling in (as you can see by the insane clouds towards the end). The wind also kept lifting his kilt, and well, the rumors are true. These two are just madly in love with each other which you can tell by the photos and their day.
Jesse & Jessica rented a cabin on a horse farm at the base of Mt. Kirkjufell, an iconic location on the north coast of Iceland’s Snæfellsnes peninsula. They had the ceremony right outside of the cabin on their own little island in the bay, celebrated with some cake and bubbly, and they headed off on an epic day of adventure.
Ash & Joe literally drove 6hrs in another direction with their family in order to get out of a massive storm. They eventually made it out with the guidance of their local photographer Steph Zakas, who found a secluded waterfall where they said their private elopement vows to one another.
Aly and Zack reached out to their photographer Bettina a few month before their trip to Iceland. As a local Icelandic photographer, Bettina wanted to show them around and the stunning Reykjanes Peninsula. They ended their adventure session in the Silica Hotel which is the private part of the famous Blue Lagoon.
Vanna & Kevin’s elopement day didn’t go exactly as planned. Their elopement photographer and local expert Steph had helped them to plan an itinerary travelling east along the south coast of Iceland. However, on the morning of their elopement, the weather forecast changed dramatically. A blizzard coming from the east was on the way, which meant road closures were almost certain. Quickly they came up with a plan B for the day, and instead drove west towards Reykjavik. But like something from a Hollywood blockbuster movie, the storm was close on their tails as they drove to a potential new ceremony location. But Steph knew they wouldn’t make it, so they pulled over their cars and literally had their elopement ceremony at the side of the road. Although in Iceland, even the roadsides are stunning
The northern lights can be seen from September until April in latitudes above 55° north. To have the best chances of seeing the northern lights you need clear skies and no light pollution, along with a good amount of patience. Choosing a location for your aurora hunting trip can be difficult, as the aurora are fickle, as is the weather. It’s not just about finding a location that is far north, but also taking in to consideration the weather conditions, light pollution, ease of access and of course the cost. Finding a destination that not only offers the chance to watch the aurora but also has lots of other activities on offer too will make sure that you have an unforgettable trip whatever happens.
