Countryside Church Wedding in Iceland.

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.

Iceland Wedding: 10 Budget Saving Tips

After deciding you want to get married in Iceland, the next step is to develop out your budget.  Having an Iceland budget wedding can be tough, because remember you are getting married on a remote island and one of the most expensive countries in the world.  But that being said, there are some strategic ways you can take heed on which we bring to your attention today below.

  1. Use a no fee international transaction credit card for all of your Iceland wedding purchases (Our favorites: Chase Sapphire or AMEX Delta).
  2. Pay your Iceland wedding vendors directly. Reason: Some wedding planners in Iceland add on 20-30% service fee (or kick back commission) to your vendor bookings.
  3. Get Married in Iceland in the off season months (late October through April). All of the hotels in Iceland are lower priced during that time period versus Spring/Summer high rack rates.
  4. Instead of sending out formal in mail save-the-dates or Iceland wedding invitations, send them via email instead and have your guests RSVP on your Iceland wedding website.
  5. Forgo the Iceland hair stylist and Iceland makeup artist and take lessons locally before (most major makeup lines will teach you for free as long as you buy the products) or enlist your favorite friend to do for you.
  6. Choose a silk flower bouquet to bring with you versus an expensive fresh flowers for your Iceland wedding bouquet.
  7. Find an Iceland wedding venue that offers an IPod plugin and house speakers to run a playlist off of versus hiring a Iceland DJ or band.
  8. DIY your own Iceland wedding reception centerpieces (Our favorite site: Save On Crafts).
  9. Choose to have a buffet meal versus a 3-5 course plated Iceland wedding reception meal or do a “chef’s choice” option.
  10. Mitigate your Iceland Wedding Reception costs by having table bar service (IE, do not have a formal open bar that guests get up and go to). Work with your reception location on having a designated staffer who will replenish the chosen wine (white and red) and Icelandic beers throughout the night.  If a guest asks specifically for something they can have it but by not forwardly offering cocktails and the 40 year old whisky you’ll find you may save hundreds of dollars.

 

We hope today several of these Iceland wedding planning tips will serve you well.
