The wonderful M&R had their sights set on Iceland for the destination wedding and furthermore wanted to explore one of Iceland's beautiful country churches. After looking around Þingvellir church spoke to them and the location was ideal too, right in the heart of Thingvellir National park, about 45 minutes from Reykjavik. The day started out with a few raindrops but apparently that was just to cleanse the streets a bit and make the grass greener as Mother Nature stopped the rain in time for their celebrations.
The talented Iceland Wedding photographers Styrmir & Heiðdís documented their day beautifully.
If there ever was a time to give a bride standing ovation this would be it. M remained so calm and centered during a slight hiccup with the dress. M you are a hero and the team we had with us that morning , you are too!
But can we also talk about how gorgeous the dress is and what a knock out the bride is wearing it?!
Reykjavik Wedding Preparations in full swing!

Þingvellir church lies within the National Park Þingvellir which is a historic site known for being the site of Iceland's parliament and is on the Unesco World Heritage list. Thingvellir church is beautiful inside and out and it's well worth taking the time to look at it's details. It's rather small and cozy and for a wedding ceremony it's very intimate.
Þingvellir church, beautiful and intimate wedding venue.
Just married!! Congratulations!

The details in the bouquet!
After a beautiful day in the countryside the group returned to Reykjavik to attend the wedding reception at Skólabrú. If you are looking for a traditional old-timey Icelandic wedding venue you should definitely look at Skolabru. Super charming.
Reykjavik City centre made sure to bring it's A game for M&R's wedding reception, beautiful light & still weather.
The looks! We're loving the kindness, joy and love you see in the guests and newlyweds looks!
The speeches. So many emotions awoken! Beautiful group of guests.
It's important to take a moment and breathe, take it all in.
Dj Erla made sure that the dancing didn't stop.
Thank you dearest M&R for choosing Pink Iceland to be your wedding planner. It was a pleasure through and through. And all the adventures that we went through on your actual wedding day, well they created bonds and memories to last a lifetime!!
