Mallory and Felix’s Snaefellsnes Elopement had everything. With the magic of Snæfellsjökull in the background for the entire day, we explored all the areas around this rugged peninsula in west Iceland.
We’ve made no secret about our love for Iceland having traveled there since 2011. If we’re to boil it down further though, it’s Snaefellsnes that we have the deepest connection to. From various fall weddings we’ve done there through to summertime elopements similar to Mallory and Felix’s, we know that area very well by now yet it never gets old.
In particular we love venturing on the roads leading up towards Snæfellsjökull – there are endless gems along the way and for a small area (relatively speaking), there feels to be endless places to explore.
This particular adventure had all the luck in the world. The weather gods were smiling down on this day as it was nearly perfect weather the entire time.
Don’t be fooled though – perfect sunny conditions with no wind is not the norm. When we think of Iceland weddings, Matt and Matt’s winter wedding in Iceland from late last year is more the norm. We’ve had car doors nearly blown off due to the wind gusting so strong. So on this day, we prepared for the worst but just happened to get the best.
Maria Broström made this story extra special as she was side by side providing the film for the day. When you’re part of a couple’s story and it’s literally only you and them, the personalities need to gel. Maria was certainly the glue that made this day that much more incredible.
Her warm presence was one important thing, but that’s not to say her work isn’t incredible. We highly encourage you to check out her work if you’re eloping in Iceland, as she’s one of the best and super welcoming to be around during such an intimate day together.
Big thanks once again to Mallory and Felix for having us part of the adventure together. Best of luck with your move to New Zealand and all the rest of your travels which will follow! Here it their Iceland elopement story from the sunny Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
