December. The time of year Iceland is shrouded in darkness. Violent storms come raging in from the open ocean. Mountain passes fill up with snow. All the migrating birds have left. The island becomes silent. The perfect month for an adventurous elopement…

Some weddings start at the edge of the world and of all the weddings we've shot none have been closer to that edge than this one. It took place in Árneshreppur in the Strandir region on the Westfjords of Iceland. A magical place you have to visit in person to truly understand.

There is a small population that lives there year round, huddled together during the winter months blocked off from the rest of the country when the mountain passes fill up with snow. When summer comes for it's short visit the place is transformed into a paradise and paradise sounds like a good spot for a wedding.

This wedding represents everything we love about our job. Traveling to distant, off the beaten track places, meeting genuine, awesome people and being accepted by a group of total strangers as one of their own and last but not least absolutely breathtaking skies.
