Hjorleifshofdi Cave Wedding in Iceland

Updated: Sep 27, 2023

Hjörleifshöfði cave on one of the beautiful Black Beaches of South Iceland has been the locations of many gorgeous and unique Pink Iceland Weddings & Wedding photos. And we're excited to share the stories and photos with you. Maybe someday your wedding from this wonderful natural cave in Iceland will end up on our blog?

Hjorleifshofdi is very well located. Have you ever heard of the town of Vík? Legendary Black Beach Reynisfjara? Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls? When creating a wedding day itinerary around Hjorleifshofdi cave Pink Iceland makes sure to include those famous and impressive Iceland beauties. We would always suggest some of our favourite accommodations in the South for you and your Iceland wedding guests to spend the night so you are waking up in the area of your wedding location. After getting ready you don't have to drive too far and you have more time in your day for adventures. If you are looking for something more off the beaten track on your wedding day how about we hire you a super jeep? Cross some rivers, drive through the black sands and head inland? In our work as Iceland Wedding planners our motto is to only work with nice people, listen to our couples and do our absolute best to make their visions come true.

- Although - none of us are the boss, that's mother nature but she seems to be on our side.

This epic saga planned by Pink Iceland's Sigga had the couple walking down a candle lit aisle with romantic lighting above and even though it was raining outside they could stay nice and dry inside the cave. The Pink Iceland team began setup at the crack of dawn preparing the Arch of love, lighting with our technician, set up the food and drinks and welcomed the musicians that were sound checking for the first time in this cave.

Norse Mythology elopement

Pagan weddings in Iceland are available to everyone whether or not you are a local or just visiting for your Iceland Wedding adventure. The Iceland Pagan religion was first introduced to Iceland with the settlers and has lived on through the years and even though those who are a part of the pagan association don't necessarily believe in the Norse gods it's about upholding this upholding this important tradition. M&C kept it simple, intimate and romantic as it was just them, their Wedding planner from Pink Iceland, photographer Julie Rowland and Haukur, their Nordic Chieftain. Whether there are a lot of decorations or just the cave as it is it's a perfect place for a wedding ceremony.
