A February Elopement in Iceland: From Waterfalls to Ice Caves
As adventure wedding photographers we love capturing elopements.
We are always up for an adventure and jumped at the chance to photograph this beautiful winter elopement in Iceland. We braved the chilly February weather and set out to explore some of Iceland's most beautiful locations. From stunning waterfalls to iconic black sand beaches and breathtaking ice caves, the day was filled with adventure, love, and unforgettable memories.
Our first stop was a magnificent waterfall, covered in mist. The bride looked stunning in her white dress, which flowed in the wind and added to the dramatic atmosphere. As we hiked closer to the falls, we were awestruck by the beauty and power of the water. I captured some breathtaking photos of the couple in front of the waterfall, with the mist and spray creating a magical backdrop.
Black Sand Beach in Vic
After the waterfall, we made our way to the famous black sand beach in Vic. The stark contrast between the dark sand, crashing waves, and the snowy cliffs created a surreal and striking landscape. The bride changed into her second dress, a gorgeous fitted number that showed off her curves and added a touch of elegance to the rugged scenery. We walked along the beach, taking in the stunning views and capturing some amazing shots of the couple.
Exploring Ice Caves in Iceland
The final stop of the day was an ice cave, deep in the heart of a glacier. We trekked through the snow, outfitted in crampons and helmets, until we reached the entrance to the cave. The bride wore a beautiful sheen dress, and as we made our way inside we did some make up touch ups. The cave was a wonderland of ice formations, glowing blue in the cloudy daylight. We spent some time exploring the cave, taking in the beauty and capturing some truly stunning photos of the couple.
It was truly once in a lifetime experience stepping over many crevasses and watching the water flow below us as we explored the caves!
Despite the cold and the challenges of the day, the couple's love and sense of adventure kept them warm and glowing. As their elopement wedding photographer, we were honoured to be a part of such a special and unforgettable day.
