Thank you so much for finding and considering our Iceland Wedding Planner team for your adventure wedding or badass elopement! …and more importantly Congratulations on your engagement or decision to get married in Iceland!
Let’s start this adventure by << turning your sound on >> and playing the video below to learn more about us!
Who is Iceland Wedding Planner?
We are American, team of crazy detailed wedding planners and photographers who thrive on adventure and love! Chasers of unique experiences and vintage champagne! Our Iceland Wedding Planner team lives in Iceland (in villages between Reykjavik to Vik). And well, we rock at everything adventure and weddings, Duh! =)
Serious note- We plan and photograph Iceland Adventure Weddings / Elopements in private and offbeat locations far away from the tourist locations!
Our team does not plan typical Iceland weddings or work with traditional couples. So who is that?
- If you are looking for the church-to-reception type wedding day.
- You’re a couple who does not want to get wet/dirty on their wedding day (We have a “no prince/princess” policy!).
- You cannot see yourself braving Iceland’s unpredictable and extreme weather conditions… (Outside ceremony or bust!).
- Haven’t hiked in your life.
Agree with the above sentiments? Then, we are NOT the right kind of Iceland wedding planners or Iceland wedding photographers for you. Sorry, we must remain true to our style, brand, and passion! Checkout our friends at IWAH if interested in that kinda stuff.
Iceland Wedding Planner was formally founded in 2012 by Ann Peters (but her professional wedding photo company Photos By Miss Ann, began in 2005 so the girls got EXPERIENCE)! Furthermore, she is a degreed logistics guru, professional photographer, adventure wedding planner, all-round travel adventurer, extreme sports enthusiast, vintage champagne collector, and even a former Iceland bride! And most importantly, a seasoned entrepreneur, see all of her Brands. So to say you’re in good hands, would be a understatement!
The once one woman show grew into a seasoned “A-Team” of super experienced wedding planners, talented Iceland wedding photographers, licensed super jeep drivers / guides, day of planners, stylists, photo editor, hair stylists, makeup artists, and an exclusive celebrant that is willing to climb mountains!

What is an Adventure Wedding or Adventurous Elopement?
Are you wondering what is an Adventure Wedding? New to this concept? Our Iceland adventure wedding day experience is typically 12-17 hours of unforgettable awesomeness! Up to the challenge?
Here at Iceland Wedding Planner, we are a very detailed, adventurous, energetic team who have a passion for weddings and Iceland. Our team has 20+ years of destination wedding photography and planning experience (specifically here in Iceland 10+ years). Another fun fact… we have 15+ years in Logistics / Supply Chain Management experience!
So how did our Iceland Wedding Planner business begin? Better story told over cocktails 😉 Short Story: Ann Peters (the owner) found Iceland in 2010 (thanks to Eyjafjallajökull eruption) and became utterly obsessed! I mean who wouldn’t be, there are 13 glaciers the climb, 1,000’s of waterfalls to find, and feels like another planet around every corner!
The very next year, she began planning an Iceland adventure wedding in 2011. And then held a wedding to her first husband at the majestic Seljalandsfoss waterfall on April 14th 2012 (long before there were ropes, barriers, signs, cafes, and even bathrooms there). It’s fair to say that with tourism so low at that time (especially in the south of Iceland), it was also Iceland’s very first American style full day “adventure wedding.”
It was so shocking to locals that her 40+ person Iceland wedding ceremony even made the Icelandic News)! All the Icelanders involved in the day, thought they were freaking nuts. Outside wedding in April? They rocked it! After tons of f*ck ups with the vendors involved in their day that just didn’t get the adventure wedding concept… And witnessing first-hand the need for an Iceland Wedding Planner who not only spoke English well, but upholds a level of customer service and the high standards Americans demands, but also can flawlessly execute the dynamic of an adventure style wedding…
Iceland Wedding Planner was formally born in the second half of 2012! Need into Niche, the best and most original businesses are made this way, eh?! So our team truly know first hand, how epic of a country it is and how special it is for you to plan your destination wedding in Iceland!
Throughout the last decade, we have learned what our couples desire in an adventure wedding day, planner, and Iceland wedding photographer… Which really means providing an unforgettable EXPERIENCE from start to finish and ensuring the logistics and ever moving parts turn out flawlessly. Now all that being said, we are SOOO FREAKING EXCITED to meet you!!

Our wedding was the most magical and fun day imaginable and provided us with unforgettable memories of a beautiful ceremony on a mountainside in in the misty rain, followed by exploring some of the most beautiful places in Iceland – stunning waterfalls, vast and intimate canyons and rugged beaches of black pebbles.

This was quite possibly one of the best wedding experiences anyone could ever ask for. If you are looking for someone who has impeccable attention to detail skills, an adventurous heart and can see your vision with you then this is your team (and lets be honest who wouldn’t want that?!).

BEST DECISION EVER! We could not have asked for a more perfect day that played out seamlessly. The locations were beyond our imagination…amazingly beautiful and super private!

These are not the kind of pictures that you will bring back from a normal tour of Iceland. These are jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind shots that you can only get with someone who knows the area and can scout out these secret spots.
Our Groom Tim via Wedding Wire
The actual adventure elopement was better than any traditional “tour” you’d go on in Iceland. We drove through rivers, up mountains, on the beach while jumping out at every location to take pictures. Touring the country while getting married was the best experience.
Our Bride Didi via Google
To say it was the most incredible experience and day of our lives would be an understatement. Her whole team was professional and helpful and honestly just downright FUN. There was not a single detail left out or missed. Our only complaint is that it is over. Luckily our photos are the most breathtaking remembrance of such a perfect day.
