Iceland Elopement Photographer – Hotel Ranga Weddings
Iceland Elopement Photographer - Hotel Ranga
Emily & Thomas
Hotel Ranga must be one of the most stunning wedding and elopement venues in the world. Situated right in the heart of Iceland's famous Golden Circle, it's a wedding photographer's dream. Emily & Thomas took a gamble on the Icelandic weather and picked February to take their closest friends and family over from England for a Nordic adventure. The gamble paid off and although the temperature was near freezing, the epic snow covered landscapes of Iceland more than made up for it!
An early start was a must for Emily and Thomas as the daylight doesn't last long during the Icelandic winter time. After a chilled out morning it was time for the ceremony. They opted for an indoor ceremony and the stunning timber interior of Hotel Ranga gave the perfect warming backdrop for what was a beautiful and emotional ceremony.
After the ceremony it was time to hop on the snow bus and visit some of Iceland's most incredible spots. While Emily & Thomas got some snaps taken, the guests were free to explore Skogafoss, Seljalandsfoss and the Black Beach at Vik. I've been lucky enough to photograph weddings and elopements in these spots before but this was the first time in the snow and it blew me away. As you can see in the photos below, the wind really picked up on the Black Beach but Emily had planned for this by making her DIY leather wedding jacket which looked amazing with her pink splashed dress.
It went a little something like this...
