Does your dream Iceland wedding entail a beautiful countryside church? Does it include stunning landscape? Tradition? History? If so, you are in luck! Iceland has a church in almost every town; even the very remote countryside towns. This particularly charming church was built in the very early 1900’s and was renovated to include the majestic steeple ten years later.
This breath taking church has everything you could wish for in a church. First, a stunning gate provides access to the yard. The gate adds a little extra elegance to a bride’s entrance. Secondly, is the church itself. The exterior is beautifully painted in white with a red roof. Inside you´ll find vintage pews, paired with wooden floors and an organ. White walls compliment the ceiling, painted in sky blue with gold star accents. The blue brightens the alter, giving it a seaside feel. For a dash of tradition and history, the Church’s first bible is kept on display in a glass box.
This is the perfect place to have a cozy wedding or an intimate elopement. The chapel is large enough to fit a small group comfortably, but is also perfect just the couple and a celebrant. Cozy or intimate this chapel can accommodate your dream wedding ceremony, making it the perfect place to say ‘I do’.
Not only is the church exquisite, but so is the landscape surrounding the area, which makes for stunning wedding photos. Capture the memories of you special day with shots of the amazing Icelandic landscape to help you keep your wedding memories alive for a lifetime. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but experiencing it in person is breathtaking.
We send our love to DGJ Photography (local Icelandic photographer) for allowing us to use these beautiful images!
On the surrounding land you will find magnificent rock formations, beautifully covered in decades of old moss. You will also find Iceland’s biggest natural lake, and a glorious historic rift valley. Not to mention the marvelous waterfall. In some of the rifts the water is completely clear. For the brave, one could even snorkel in the area, under local supervision of course.
The beauty of the surrounding landscape accents the quaintness of the chapel; making this the perfect location for the couple looking to add a sense of historic traditional to their already amazing Icelandic wedding.
