Iceland is an island full of dramatic landscapes. The land proves to be the moodiest and most unpredictable on the planet. As I’m sure you remember, the day before this Southern Iceland Honeymoon Session, Miranda and Pete held an EPIC blue sky wedding at Godafoss Waterfall. If you need a refresh on their Iceland wedding day adventure, feel free to go back and check out the previous posts here:

We drove from Lake Myvatn to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon very early the day after their dreamy Icelandic Elopement. I think we drove through clouds, fog, rain, hail, and secret bits of sunshine within those 6 hours. That is one thing you must remember about driving in Iceland, is that the weather can change very quickly so you must take caution and prepare. When we arrived at the stunning Iceland glacier lagoon it was raining and windy, but Miranda and Pete embraced the crazy weather and just cuddled closer! Perfect excuse, right?! Yes!!!
Our next stop was a few more hours drive to the beautiful and world renowned black sand beach called, Reynisfjara. The rain, waves, and dodging the tourists became a bit more of a challenge for us but well worth it! I mean how can you resist the texture and the tones of the basalt rocks emerging from the land and sea? The cave there provided a bit of shelter for us from the rain too, it was uber romantic!
Our last stop had to include another waterfall… Since after all that is where we began their amazing Iceland wedding adventure! Skogafoss Waterfall proved to be a perfect stop for some magic to happen! The rain, the sounds, sights, and mist, and the playful romance Pete and Miranda shared was totally fairytale like! Okay okay okay now let’s all be green with envy and look that these stunning Iceland post wedding images!
