Thank you for joining us for our second installment of Farid + Vanessa’s enticing Iceland elopement! In case you missed it…feel free to head back to our previous posts on their Iceland Country Church wedding ceremony and romantic Iceland Pre-Wedding Session (Iceland Engagement).
Seeing Vanessa + Farid’s dreamy destination wedding photos may persuade you to change your big wedding plans and design an intimate wedding in Iceland! Today we are totally mesmerized by their romantic Iceland wedding portrait adventure in the legendary Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park. Caution ahead readers, you might also find yourself green with envy by the end of this post!
Thingvellir National Park offers distinctively vivid landscapes which are ideal for Iceland wedding photos regardless of the season. Geographically, there are never-ending remarkable areas throughout the park such as the continental drift faults (where the American and European tectonic plates meet), Öxarárfoss Waterfall, Þingvallavatn Lake, lava rock walls, moss covered rocks, and the famed Silfra Fissure.
Thingvellir is also one of the most noteworthy, historical, and meaningful places in Iceland. It not only boasts endless geological marvels but it is extremely rich in Icelandic culture. Historically, one of the most fascinating things about this location is that when the immigration to Iceland increased, the first parliament began there in 930 which in the end established Icelandic Commonwealth. Festivals and markets were also held and the land served as the country’s socializing spot. Fast forward to current day, it is still a frequented gathering spot for Icelander’s and since the park is in close proximity to Reykjavík it is typically on every visitor’s “must do list” and rightfully so, because the park is too spectacular to miss.
As you’ll see from the dazzling Iceland wedding images below we had a blast running around finding grass covered houses, being in awe of the tectonic plates, delighting in a very frozen waterfall, and luckily we had just enough wind (laugh, we had a ton!) to keep the brides dress and hair theatrically flowing! A beautiful couple and one epic adventure, that’s for sure! Enjoy! Then make sure you stay tuned for our 3rd and final post on Farid and Vanessa’s adventurous Iceland wedding day… Look forward to playful Icelandic ponies, the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel and elegant Iceland wedding reception details!
