Seljalandsfoss

Written by Ryan Rowell on April 9, 2013

These two are a couple of thrill seekers, and adventure travellers, so a destination Iceland wedding was a perfect fit. Taking in all of the natural beauty and sights around them for their engagement photo session they chose Seltun, the southern sight of Iceland’s boiling mud pots and desert coloured landscape, and Keldur, a beautiful simple farm property and home of the first turf houses.

Wedding guests stayed at Hotel Ranga, in Hella, Iceland. Hotel Ranga is one of the best places in Iceland to see the Northern Lights. The evening before their wedding we had quite the show. The next day the love birds were married at the base of Seljalandsfoss waterfall on what started out as a rainy day and just as they said “I Do” turned into a sunny one.  Following the ceremony guests were taken on a road trip to the black sands beaches of Vik for a champagne toast to the newlyweds on the beach. The reception at Hotel Ranga followed this unforgettable afternoon of sight seeing, love and adventure.

 

An adventurous destination Iceland wedding like this one is just an example of the variety and personalized photographs we can create for you.

 

Engagement session at the Keldur Turf House in Southern Iceland.
For this romantic Iceland engagement session we visited the rustic terrain of Krýsuvík Seltun.

View from the top of Krýsuvík Seltun, you can see the steam rising from the boiling mud pots.

The steam from the ground is constantly rising and made for some dreamy couples photos.

These little turf houses are among the oldest standing structures in Iceland and date back to Viking times.
Wedding day preparations began at Hotel Ranga, for this Icelandic wedding.

It rained off and on for the morning and early afternoon on the day of their wedding. But guests came prepared for a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Umbrellas in hand.

Such a picturesque location for an Iceland wedding ceremony; Seljalandsfoss.

Just before they walked down the aisle the sun crested over the mountain and shown down on everyone as they watch the newly weds walk down the aisle of their Iceland wedding.

A quick stop off in the gorgeous valley on our way to Vik Beach for photos.

The winds were fierce by the coast. The bridal party poses on a unique rock formations at Vik.

Along the coastline at Vik Beach there are many caves and rock formations to explore. We especially loved this cave.

Even though Vik is a black sand beach, most of whats there is not sand at all just smooth, tiny pebble rocks.
We love this candid moment when the ocean creeped in a little too close.

Not everyday do you get the opportunity to photograph a waterfall, a bride and groom and a rainbow on black sand. This was a pretty surreal moment at Skogafoss Iceland.

The very famous Hekla Volcano was not too far from the wedding locations.
