Waterfall Wedding in Iceland VIDEO!

It is our pleasure to share with you one of our stunning weddings from this summer. It was a thrill to get to work with a wonderful, down to earth, and stress-free couple from New York.  Fizah and Jonathan were a true delight. Their fun, adventurous and creative personalities were only amplified by their true and complete adoration of each other. Fizah, Jonathan, along with their 60 guests, and Iceland were the perfect mixture for a memorable destination wedding.

Throughout the day there was never a dull moment. The happy couple had so many creative ideas to ensure their guests would have a wonderful time and capture memories to last a lifetime.  In the morning, before the ceremony, there was plenty of time for the couple and their guests to explore some of the stunning landscapes Iceland has to offer.  After adventuring through three separate locations it was time for the ceremony.  ​

That afternoon, the ceremony, almost too perfect for words, took place.  In front of a beautiful waterfall and 60 of their beloved family and friends Fizah and Jonathan vowed to love, cherish and respect each other for the rest of their lives.  The location was even more captivating with the addition of local talent singing native Icelandic hymns.  After the ceremony the group gathered at a nearby restaurant to celebrate.  The reception, where they would spend the remainder of the night, was filled with dancing, eating, and making memories. ​

Fizah and Jonathan chose to document the whole event by hiring two collaborating videographers: Cody from Glacier Point Productions and Matt from Lynn Production. Cody and Matt were wonderful to work with; they captured the beauty of the entire day with breathtaking footage.  Even more impressive was their ability, and pure talent, to capture emotion and feeling.  In the videos one can feel how much Fizah and Jonathan care for each other, and how strong their love is.  The videos truly do speak for themselves. Here is the first teaser.

 

Having a video of the happiest day of your life allows you to relive it again and again.  They say a picture is worth a thousand word, but a video… a video’s worth is timeless, limitless,…infinite.  When planning your wedding or elopement it is important to narrow down what aspects of the day are most important to you.  We often hear of couples that regret not hiring an experienced videographer.   Let us tell you, it is worth every penny! Still not convinced? Let Fizah and Jonathan’s complete video of their wedding day help you decide.

 

Hiring a Day of Planner, which Fizah and Jonathan did, allows the couple to focus on each other without having to worry about anything else. A Day of Planner also can help manage and direct your guests.  For larger weddings a Day of Planner is very handy especially when random tourists need to be kept at bay (i.e. preventing strangers from showing up at your ceremony or photobombing your wedding photos).  A Day of Planner does everything from setting up chairs at your outdoor ceremony, to helping your guest crossover little glacier feed streams.  A Day of Planner acts as your personal wedding aide and has everything a bride or groom might need throughout the day.  First aid kit, umbrellas, or blankets? -your Day of Planner has those covered.​

Is Iceland your dream destination wedding location? Are you and awe of Fizah’s and Jonathan´s wedding?  Have you yearning of a similar experience?    Iceland Weddings and Honeymoons helps you to make your dreams come true.  Elopement, weddings, vow renewals-you name it and we can make it happen!  Contact us to start planning your amazing event.

Iceland Wedding Packages & Budget Advice

In an ideal destination wedding world, what would your Iceland Wedding Package look like?

Budgets and expectations vary.  Here at, Iceland Weddings & Honeymoons, we help you manage both.  But I do urge you to remember that Iceland is for sure one of the most expensive European countries you could consider having your destination wedding in.  The majority of everything is imported (IE, like liqueur, flowers, and the cost of living is more expensive than NYC) and it is a remote island, remember that tidbit folks!  …a challenging trade off to be wed in such a dynamic inspiring rugged landscape!

There are several things you need to consider as you formulate your Iceland wedding budget such as the following items:

  1. Time of Year (High Season = June-August / Low Season = September-May)
  2. Number of Guests (4, 10, 25, 50, 100 or just you two eloping?)
  3. Region of Iceland that intrigues you… City, North, South, East, West, Fjords!
  4. Type of Wedding Ceremony (Civil, Religious, Nature-Based, Norse/Viking, Humanist, or Non-Denominational).
  5. Photographer Budget.
  6. Location for Ceremony: Private versus Public AND Inside versus Outside
  7. Do you want an Iceland Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist?
  8. Would you like an Iceland Wedding Bouquet and Boutonniere?
  9. Lunch and/or dinner for your guests?  Formal?  Picnic Style?  Brunch?  BBQ?
  10. Extras for your ceremony – IE. If having guests consider having chairs or not… or a sound system if getting married at a waterfall.
  11. Champagne Toast?
  12. Private Room for your group (if guests)?
  13. Iceland Wedding Favors or welcome bags (if having guests).
