Updated: Jan 10, 2023

Are you curious about these people, this team of Iceland Wedding planners and tour guides described by hundreds as the best in their business? These are the loving, caring, kind, funny, resourceful, brilliant, innovative people of Pink Iceland and we're so proud to call them our Pink Iceland team. And like we always say, we never ask you to take just our word for it, read about the first hand experience of our newlyweds, the adventurous couples who took the leap and planned their destination wedding in Iceland with the Pink Iceland team.

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Sigga

Sigga was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and so organized

Iceland wedding planner Sigga

‘We made the decision to have a destination wedding in Iceland and after some online searching, found the Pink Iceland team. Sigga did an amazing job putting our wedding together quickly - in just 5 months! We booked accommodations, transportation, tour for our family, picnic lunch, photo and video services, wedding location, and reception all through Sigga and it came together perfectly! Sigga was an absolute professional, keeping us on schedule throughout the planning process and responsive to all of our questions. Without Sigga and the Pink Iceland team, we wouldn't have been able to plan such an amazing experience for both us and our family. Thanks again Sigga!’

‘What an incredible experience! We reached out to Pink Iceland over a year ago because we wanted to renew our vows with a small group of family and friends in Iceland. From the very beginning, Sigga was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and so organized--I wish I'd had her around to plan our actual wedding 5 years ago!..’

‘We had an absolutely amazing experience working with Pink Iceland, and more specifically, our incredible wedding planner, Sigga. We began working with Pink Iceland on our wedding planning in late 2021, for an Oct. 2022 wedding. Sigga met with us via Zoom for an introduction and we knew we had chosen the right planner and organization. We loved that Pink Iceland was a very inclusive organization and as you can see on their website, they help deliver an amazing experience to everyone.

Sigga made what could have been a very stressful planning experience, as stress free as possible. Her communication was extremely responsive, via email and Google docs, which made things easier due to our 7 hour time difference. Her contacts throughout Iceland were also incredibly impressive. No matter our question, interest or area of the country we inquired about, she knew someone and was able to quickly get us information on availability. We also greatly appreciated her guidance, using her vast knowledge to help us not only have an experience we will never forget, but to also help us stay within our budget.

We also had pre-wedding events, such as a group trip to the Blue Lagoon, dinners and a private singer from Iceland and Sigga delivered all of this to perfection. From the scheduling, to transportation and paying for the all went through Pink Iceland, which made things so much easier and also helped us just focus on the experience…’

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Sara

Sara was extraordinarily attentive, kind and clearly enjoys this incredible job of which she is so gifted.

Iceland wedding planner Sara

‘...Sara did an absolutely amazing job of helping us plan our dream wedding. The thought of having a destination wedding was daunting, but Sara made it stress free! She helped us select the most perfect vendors for our wedding vision and what fit our personality as a couple. Sara presented us with opportunities that allowed us to see much of the beauty that Iceland has to offer. It has been two months since our wedding and our family still cannot stop raving about the experience they had.

We highly recommend Pink Iceland and Sara!!’

Pink Iceland wedding planner Sara

‘...the team managed to assign us to the super sweet and charming Sara. She was fantastic! She had everything prepared and because of that, the changes never really bothered us on our special day. We were touched and blown away by her commitment and how she made sure we were having one of the most unforgettable experience of our lives. It was everything we had hoped for and more!...’

Iceland Wedding planner Sara

‘If you're getting married in Iceland, plan your wedding with Pink Iceland!!!! I can't recommend them enough. Sara was so incredible. She actually help us plan not one, but two weddings! Our first plan was a beautiful micro wedding in the fall in South Iceland. This dreamy day was sadly cancelled due to covid. It was such a hard thing to go through, but Sara was so understanding and accommodating. Later, when we decided we couldn't wait any longer, Sara was there to help us pivot in a different and unexpected direction. We ended up eloping just the two of us in the dead of winter! While we were sad to not share the moment with our family and friends, eloping gave us more freedom to do something really unique and adventurous, and Sara did not disappoint. She put together an incredible, once in a lifetime experience that was very true to us as a couple. We were so grateful to have Sara and her team there on the day of to make sure things ran smoothly and that a warm coat was never too far from the frozen bride. Thank you Pink Iceland for creating such a perfect day for us!’

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Hannes

Thoughtful, TALL, one-of-a-kind, superhero (the list is endless) wedding planner, Hannes

Iceland Wedding planner Hannes

‘​​Pink Iceland was the absolute best. The whole process of working with them was easy and fun from start to finish. Hannes was the best wedding planner ever and we would give him 100 stars if we could. He made planning a destination wedding a breeze and the whole wedding day went of without a single hitch. I cannot recommend Pink Iceland enough!!’

Iceland Wedding planner Hannes

‘...From the very beginning, Hannes was exceptional. He made the planning seemed so smooth and easy because of his expertise and experiences. Everytime we have doubts during the whole process, his response was always reassuring and he always made sure that our suggestions and requests are always included and accommodated. We only chose a specific location for our ceremony itself and did not really give explicit details to where we wanna have the photoshoot for our VIP tour as we really just wanted to relax and enjoy the whole thing…’

‘...From the first contact with our wedding planner Hannes, we directly felt very comfortable, understood and welcomed. Hannes helped us to find the perfect team of officiant, photographer, videographer and guided us through the whole organisation process. He did a lot of recommendations for everything (location, cake, photographer, accomodations etc.) and we were in the comfortable position to only say yes or no. We told him that we would like to get married completely on our own to not feel the need to please our guests and just enjoy this day. He got a pretty good picture of our needs and wishes which made him plan the perfect wedding day…'

Pink Iceland wedding planner Hannes

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Birna

Birna was always so supportive, helpful, and positive. Birna was our own personal Wonder Woman

Iceland Wedding planner Birna

Where to even begin! We worked with Birna and the Pink Iceland team to plan our wedding and when I tell you they are the dream team, I mean it! Because of COVID we ended up having a 3 year planning process. Over the course of those 3 years the amazing Pink team felt like family. Birna was always so supportive, helpful, and positive. When battling border restrictions and uncertain circumstances she was always quick to comfort us and assure us we’d have our perfect day eventually. And she DELIVERED!

Birna planned a three day adventure wedding for our group of 10 (originally a group of 30 - always rolling with the punches!) It was the most stress free wedding event I could have possibly imagined! She handled all of our details, from tours with the Pink Iceland team (shoutout to Guðni for being the most fabulous tour guide ever), to hotel bookings, to transportation, to helping schedule COVID tests - Birna was our own personal Wonder Woman

Day of the wedding she was right by our side all day, always with a glass of Prosecco in hand. She guided us through prep with hair and makeup, personally transported us to our wedding location, and was the ultimate hype woman for the rest of the day while we galavanted around the Icelandic countryside for pictures. I would be lying if I didn’t admit I teared up when she left at the end of the day! The Pink team truly feels like family and treated us as such. Our day was incredible all thanks to Birna and her team.

If you’re considering booking Pink Iceland for any services - wedding related or day tours - don’t hesitate! They are the greatest group of humans and are truly masters at their craft. They’re each so wonderfully adept at what they do and they will make your trip to Iceland magical in every way!

'...My daughter, and now son-in-law had a vision… a totally non-traditional wedding, destination Iceland, with only close friends and family. Over the last 9 months they worked with Birna, to turn that vision into a reality. I know they could not have been more pleased with how the wedding weekend turned out. As their guests, we were in awe of their vision and Birna’s execution. Pink Iceland has many 5 star reviews and now that I have seen the results of their planning expertise, I would easily give them 10 stars! When you are planning a wedding a great distance, in a place you have never been, you have to really trust who you are working with. Birna, and her entire team earn that trust! They are top notch, going above and beyond, planning for every detail...'

Iceland Wedding planner Birna

'We confidently recommend Pink Iceland and our wedding planner Birna to anyone who is entertaining the idea of pulling off a wedding in Iceland. For a day that can be stressful in and of itself, let alone a destination wedding, Birna put those worries away from the first conversation.

Birna was extremely responsive, warm, sensitive and understanding to concerns, and upfront with everything we needed to do and making sure she worked with us every step of the way. Birna was wonderful aligning our vision for the day to pull all her resources in making it happen. From ensuring all the paperwork was all set, meeting the deadlines, hotel accommodations, setting up the officiant, and information on possible photographers for the day as well as other options was just way easier than we would have imagined it to be.

The ceremony was as perfect and beautiful as we envisioned and having Birna there that day to add the final touches was more than we could ask for. We have Pink Iceland/Birna to thank for not just the wedding, but also for help with suggestions and guidance for our day by day of the trip. We are fortunate to have gone with Pink Iceland!'

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Eva María

Eva, you are a uniquely beautiful soul and we can't thank you enough for your love and generosity

Iceland Wedding planner Eva María

‘...Pink Iceland did the most incredible job planning our wedding and itinerary. Eva and Birna understood exactly what we wanted and were so intuitive when choosing restaurants and activities. Not one detail or desire was overlooked. They totally "got" us.

We spent our time mostly with Eva, whose connections and charisma will make her Iceland's next president. Like a magical Icelandic fairy godmother, she took care of us during our wedding day, making it so special and bringing the best snacks. Entrusting Eva with all the details was the best thing we could have done -- she is truly a wedding-ologist and doesn't miss a beat. It was a five-star, VIP experience that felt like family.

While we went to Iceland to get married and see the country, we left feeling like we made life-long friends. I cannot imagine our trip without Eva, Birna and the Pink Iceland team. I feel lucky that our paths crossed…’

I cannot give enough praise to Eva Maria for helping us plan our perfect elopement in Iceland! She simplified the process so well. There was zero stress in our wedding planning - even when the weather decided to add a little drama. All of the vendors she suggested were amazing…’

'...There are not enough words to explain how incredible Pink Iceland are, and how thankful we are that we chose them to organise our Elopement in February 2020. From their meticulous organisation, to their love and devotion in providing their couples with their perfect day… Pink Iceland ensured our wedding day was the fairytale we could only ever dare to dream of!

From our first communication with Eva Maria back in September 2019 we knew we were making the right decision for our special day. The whole journey between first making contact and saying 'I do' was seamlessly easy, and most importantly full of FUN and huge amounts of LOVE. Nothing was ever too much or too little to ask for from Eva and the rest of the Pink Iceland team. Eva, you are a uniquely beautiful soul and we can't thank you enough for your love and generosity these past months...'

'...For the year leading up to the wedding, Eva had our backs. Anytime we got overwhelmed, we would reach out and she was always patient, helpful and ready with a plan. Once we arrived in Reykjavik for the wedding, we didn't need to think about anything. Eva made sure the only thing we had to do was enjoy ourselves & have the most fun with our guests...'

'...I'm having trouble coming up with suitable words to describe the generosity and selflessness that Eva Maria showed us on that day. From personally shuttling us to multiple gorgeous picture locations, to providing us with a picnic between stops, to communicating with the 30 person tour group that was occurring simultaneously, Eva Maria provided us with so much love on our wedding day. To say it was the best day of my life comes nowhere close enough to describing what it felt like...'

'...Eva Maria at Pink Iceland took ALL the stress out of the process. I cannot recommend her (or the company) enough! As soon as I talked to her, I felt immediately relieved and calmer about the whole situation. Eva Maria took care of everything and made it so easy!...'

Pink Iceland Guide & Wedding planner and wedding officiant: Árni

Arni was our tour guide and he was just fabulous

Iceland wedding officiant

‘...Arni's wedding speach was emotional and fun. And although it was the first time meeting each other, there was a family environment…’

‘...Árni conducted our humanist ceremony which was so thoughtful, with each aspect really made personal to us. We had opted to have the full ceremony recorded and were so thankful we chose to do this…’

‘...Arni was our tour guide and he was just fabulous!! He answered all our questions and took time out to explain the history of Iceland along with the history behind many of the sites we saw. I became very fond of Arni after all the time we spent together. Eva and Arni are the perfect pair if you want a truly amazing and breathtaking tour of Iceland and an even more perfect wedding. Thank you so much for making everything perfect!!!!’

'...Our guide Árni, whom we had with us for all of our tours, was friendly, informative and a delight to have showing his home country. We loved that he even gave us some of his personal stories growing up there and took the time to create a musical playlist to introduce us to Icelandic music...'

Humanist wedding officiant Iceland

‘...Our experience planning our wedding with Pink Iceland was incredible, but not as incredible as the actual trip. Árni was our tour guide, and somehow managed to not just tolerate our group of 30 Americans and our loudness, but to become part of the trip, as did our bus driver Hjörtur. Árni and Hjörtur carted the lot of us around basically the western half of Iceland for nearly a week and a half, showing us the sights and teaching us so much about the country. The actual wedding itself could not have gone more perfectly…’

‘Professional, kind and thorough. Knowledgeable about history and interesting facts! Thank you so much, Árni!

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Valdi

Our wedding planner, Valdimar was very professional, kind, knowledgeable and flexible

Iceland Wedding planner Valdi

‘...We highly recommend using Pink Iceland to help plan your elopement/ wedding or Honeymoon. We had the pleasure of working with Valdi as our wedding planner. He made the whole process of planning our entire wedding and honeymoon stress free, and very well organized. We were even surprised that when we found out our wedding date called for bad weather Valdi was able to move our wedding date to a different day with better weather. We eloped at a private waterfall followed by a picnic and then a tour of parts of Iceland. We absolutely loved our photographer as well. Sunday White Studio. He is an amazing photographer and Valdi and Laimonas our photographer made a great team.’

'We had a great pleasure of working with Valdi at PinkIceland. Our elopement was last minute... as in running around with our head cut off at home the week before while ordering tickets, getting documents,etc. Valdi went above and beyond to take the chaos out of it all allowing us to focus on our adventure. He stayed in constant communication despite a 5hr difference timezone,listened to our wants and needs while providing everything we needed and giving us the insight we were lacking to make some of the decisions. By the time we arrived, the elopement was to be just a couple days out. Valdi had everything in line, up to, through, and after our event. Not only was Valdi able to help plan/create an itenerary for us, he also took extra steps to ensure our entire elopement trip/honeymoon was perfect. We could not of asked for anyone better. If you are looking for someone that can handle the curveballs and make you feel like you have a friend local on the Iceland, I recommend Valdi at PinkIceland 100%.'

'My partner and I decided to elope in Iceland and hired Pink Iceland to help plan the wedding and we are so glad that we did! Valdi was truly an amazing wedding planner and made the whole planning process effortless and stress free. He was always responsive throughout the whole planning process and connected us to our amazing photographer (Kristin Maria) and videographer (Gunnar from Sunday & White Studio) - both of which we also highly recommend!

Valdi even seamlessly shifted our wedding date by a day to accommodate bad weather and handled all the arrangements, we didn’t have to do a thing. When it came to our wedding day, it was so much better than we could have dreamed of, largely part to all of Valdi’s planning and help throughout the day. From keeping us warm with puffy jackets to providing snacks and drinks throughout the day to make sure we weren’t hungry and were comfortable, we couldn’t be more grateful for Valdi and his team for all their help! If you are planning on getting married in Iceland, we can’t recommend Pink Iceland enough!'

Iceland Wedding planner Valdi

‘...On the wedding day, our wedding planner and officiant were Valdi and Arni. Due to a weather change, Valdi helped us find a new location in a cave on the very last day and decorated it like a dream…’

‘...Our wedding planner, Valdimar was very professional, kind, knowledgeable and flexible and helped us find the perfect wedding spot on Vík beach. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner or wedding planning service.’

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Heiðrún

you are a truly lovely, sweet genuine person who passionately cares about her clients

Iceland Wedding planner Heidrun

‘...Heidrun you were amazing and our wedding would not have been the same without your efforts and passion to make sure that we were made to feel so special on the most important days of our lives together. So we would like to send you a HUGE thank you, you are a truly lovely, sweet genuine person who passionately cares about her clients, who are not treated like clients at all, we were made to feel like we were your friends…’

‘...We would love to especially thank our amazing wedding planner Heiðrún for being the best at not only planning our big day, but supporting and pushing us when needed. She is absolutely kindhearted, devoted to her clients, and efficient! Heiðrún gave us options, but also made suggestions that were practical at the end of the day. We appreciated that she was not just a Yes Man but the guidance we needed!..’

iceland wedding planner heidrun

Iceland wedding planner Heidrun

'...Working with Pink Iceland for our wedding was an absolutely spectacular experience. From the beginning, our planner Heiðrún made everything so easy and wonderful.

My partner and I were both very nervous about this process because neither of us wanted a traditional wedding. Heiðrún listened to everything we had to say and was able to help create an experience that was so personal and special to us. The planning was very collaborative and transparent – I loved that we could work together and ask questions throughout the months of planning.

We both had been to Iceland before and very much wanted to have our ceremony in the north of Iceland. We loved how excited Heiðrún was about this, and she went above and beyond to make this day incredible...'

'...On the day of the wedding, Heiðrún took care of absolutely everything. She even surprised me with my dream bouquet – she found peonies! I knew this would be a long shot for a fall wedding in Iceland, but Heiðrún made it happen (this was the first of many times I cried happy tears this day).

I felt so held and supported by Heiðrún and our spectacular photographer Kristina Petra. Both of us were also nervous about being photographed, but Kristina was so wonderful and easy to be with. She immediately had our families laughing, and we felt so comfortable with her. One of my favorite moments of the day was making a stop with Kristina and Heiðrún in our wedding outfits to grab a hot dog on the way to the ceremony – it was a delight. The ceremony was in a perfect location, and we were able to celebrate with our close family and friends with a lovely picnic after the wedding (complete with Icelandic pancakes made from a women’s group in the north!).

I’m also still thinking about the meal we had at our reception venue (Svartaborgir!). Everything was delicious, the cake (which Heiðrún flew with on her lap from Reykjavik) was extraordinary, and the venue was so intimate, warm, and lovely.

I truly cannot express how wonderful this day was. It exceeded all of my expectation – I cried (happy tears!) so many times during the day and was just in awe of what Heiðrún was able to create. Heiðrún thought of absolutely everything, and I felt like my partner and I were free to be in the moment and enjoy the day with our family. I will treasure these memories forever...'

Pink Iceland Guide & Wedding Planner: Hafsteinn

We had Hafsteinn as our tour guide and WOW what an experience he gave us!

Iceland gay guide Hafsteinn

‘...For the wedding, we traveled 3 hours from Reykjavik to Búðir via private bus with our wedding party, where we had Hafsteinn as our tour guide and WOW what an experience he gave us! He shared stories, history and tied the Icelandic Sagas to the area where we were traveling. We even asked Hafsteinn to sing a small part at our wedding with the priest and he happily obliged, which made it very special. To top it off, on the way back to Reykjavik after the wedding, he created an interactive event on the bus that tied all of our wedding party into an Icelandic Saga, creating characters and a wonderful story that none of us will forget. Once again, just going so far above and beyond to make it a memorable experience…’

‘...We really cannot thank Sigga, Hafsteinn and Pink Iceland enough for providing a wedding experience that was far beyond our expectations. These are truly special people that not only love what they do, but they really care about the people they work with. If you're planning a wedding or any type of event in Iceland, especially if you're coming in from another country, we strongly recommend this organization. Thank you Sigga, Hafsteinn and Pink Iceland!...’

‘ our incredibly knowledgable tour guide, Haffi, who kept us entertained for hours on the bus with his many folklore stories…’

Pink Iceland gay guide Hafsteinn

‘...On the next day we did the Pink Golden Circle tour together with Haffi, who is not only a great guide to the places to be visited, but also told us a lot about gay life in Iceland, how it has developed over the years and how his own life was. We (a gay couple) were traveling with a straight friend and he was just as interested in Haffi's stories as we were. Again, we had an amazing day, it couldn't have got any better!...’

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Glóey

Glóey was our planner and we could not have asked for a better person to help us!

‘Our elopement was organized by Pink Iceland at the end of August, and we have to say, for us, it was the perfect day.

Gloéy helped us find the right wedding location, organizing the paper work and created the perfect surrounding with wonderful decoration and a picnic after the ceremony…’

‘Pink Iceland did an absolutely amazing job planning our wedding from start to finish! Glóey was our planner and we could not have asked for a better person to help us! Not only did we appreciate the dedication and attention to detail she provided us on our wedding, but our wedding guests were also just as impressed! I feel like we’ve made a great friend during the experience, and honestly, what more can you ask for?

Each and every vendor Pink Iceland works with is the best- the florals/decor, food, DJ, musician, hotel- literally everything was 10/10.

I cannot recommend Pink Iceland and Glóey enough! We’ll be coming back to Iceland for many years to come, and we’ll always be reaching out to them to help us plan our next adventure!’

'...Our planner, Glóey, was excellent - she was detail oriented and wonderful to work with. During the early stages of planning, we found the discussion, guidance and local insights she shared to be valuable in shaping our final wedding day. From securing vendors to picking venues and everything in-between, Pink Iceland was able to share a variety of offerings and options all of which were top notch.

As a testament, the day prior we had inclement weather related challenges. Through it all, Glóey was on top of it and helped guide us in getting our 40 guests through all the elements to the event safely. On the big day, we had the peace of mind of having an emergency backup plan, our guests enjoyed themselves, and we too were able to relax and enjoy what turned out to be the perfect day!

Each of the individuals we worked with through Pink Iceland - photographers, officiant, DJ, stylist, videographers, and caterers were talented, professional, and kind. We felt that this team really worked hard to put together an event based on our requests so that in the end, our wedding day felt uniquely ours - we are grateful to and wholeheartedly recommend Glóey and the Pink Iceland team...'

Pink Iceland Wedding planner: Edda

I knew that Edda had everything under control

Iceland Wedding planner Edda

'I cannot recommend Pink Iceland enough. We needed someone to help us plan an elopement in Iceland, so help with the paperwork, finding an officiant, etc as well as planning our honeymoon. The day before our ceremony we looked at the weather forecast and saw that it was supposed to be downpouring day of. We realized that the best weather to get married outside would be THAT evening. Rather than let us get married in the rain, Pink Iceland jumped in to save the day, moving hair and makeup, our officiant, and helping us choose a new location so we could be married that night (less than 12 hours from when we realized we needed to move the ceremony time).

After that whole whirlwind, we went off on our honeymoon that Pink Iceland also planned for us, which also went extremely smoothly and was a ton of fun.

Throughout the entire planning process, anytime someone asked me if I was stressed I could very easily say no, including the day that we had to move the ceremony, because I knew that Edda had everything under control.'

'...The whole team is so professional, responsive and lovely to work with. Every single step was clearly explained to us, and the whole process was made super simple and easy. It was a completely no stress experience!...'

Iceland Wedding planner Edda

Iceland Wedding planner Edda

We went through Pink Island to organize our wedding with our children. Everything went very well from start to finish. Edda was really very nice, we immediately had a very good contact with her. She answered all of our questions and more. . She helped us in the choices to make for this wonderful day. On the wedding day everything went very smoothly. We had no stress thanks to Edda and Kristin, they took care of us and the children. Everything was as we had planned it together. Edda found us a celebrant who spoke French, it was important for us and we are very happy.

The photographer we chose from Pink's partners was fantastic! The photos are beautiful ! We highly recommend the Pink Iceland teams! We had a wonderful day!

Thank you for your work !

The incredible humans making up the Pink Iceland team make our company what it is and we're thankful for them every day. We're also thankful for the wonderful couples who choose us, you may know that we only work with nice people, if you are queerphobic, sexist or racist we kindly ask that you seek planning help elsewhere, these 5 star wedding planners don't want any of that!

For our final words we pass the mic back to one of our lovely couples:

'...Ultimately, if you have any doubts about who to work with for your celebration in Iceland you should know that Pink Iceland is the way to go. They are a wonderful, spectacular team, and I am so grateful to them for helping my partner and I have such a beautiful wedding together. And here I am getting misty again!'...'
