Iceland destination wedding shoot: fire and ice elopement

Earlier this year we excitedly flew to Iceland for one of the most dramatic styled destination wedding shoots we’ve ever done. We’re no strangers to this amazing country, we even got engaged under the Northern Lights there, and we are excited to show you our photos from the Rock and Roll Bride featured styled shoot! This dramatic landscape of ice, black sands and mountains demands a unique approach and we’ve always been so inspired by it, we came up with a crazy plan to get out there and shoot – in the middle of winter!

Gone are the normal wedding rules, we’re here to show you how to make the most of Iceland for your wedding, and especially how to have an out of this world elopement! This shoot was also recently featured on Magpie Wedding recently too – we’re so grateful to both blogs for featuring it.

Iceland Destination Wedding Photography by Lina and Tom

We’ve seen so many fabulous destination weddings in Iceland, with incredible photographs of couples. However, we have noticed that the photography is usually quite muted and dark, and we wanted to bring our signature bright, fun style to the party too. A fresh approach in Iceland – how we see it – in all it’s vibrant glory.

It’s our turn: we’re wedding planning too after our Northern Lights proposal!

Last week we spent an an amazing five days in glorious southern Iceland celebrating Tom’s birthday. I’d surprised him with a trip staying at the fabulous Hotel Ranga, and filled the week with exciting private tours, so we would have a great week together, and not be too disappointed if the famous Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis – didn’t show.

Well we were very excited when the hotel told us they were showing after dinner on Tuesday night, and got all our cold weather gear on to go out and enjoy the light show amongst a sky of glorious green and shooting stars, the cherry on top for my plans. But then Tom turned the tables on me and proposed!

So we’re very happy to announce that after almost seven years together, the last five working together as Cambridgeshire wedding photographers, we are now engaged! So it is time for us to plan our own wedding!

As you all know I love all things wedding and we are always delighted to be a help to our wedding photography clients in any part of their planning, so it will be interesting doing it for ourselves. People assume we have it all figured out already; on the contrary, we’ve seen so many fabulous weddings our heads are like Pinterest! We’re currently working out what we want and we have organised some initial venue viewings. Already looking at some websites I have seen the potential frustrations to a bride-to-be so I will be blogging my planning journey which will hopefully help other couples.

Wish us luck! 🙂
