Nordic Wedding in Iceland | Christophe + Mary

Iceland Weddings always hold a special place in my heart.  It’s not just because I call this amazing place home either!  The land offers an incredible amount of variety in options for an adventure wedding.  Our Iceland wedding clients can easily visit 4-12 different locations in one day and all of those locations be extremely unique.  Imagine yourselves exploring (non-touristy) waterfalls, secret caves, amazing cliff lines, epic canyons, and private sides of glaciers!

Today I’m excited to share with you the Iceland wedding of Christophe and Mary.  They hail from NYC but brought over 100 guests from all over the world to participate in their unforgettable adventure wedding in Iceland.  So come along with us today as you experience their destination wedding adventure in Iceland!

Norway Elopement Photographer: Danielle + Shea’s Adventure Wedding (Part 2)

 

Coming all of the way from Australia, Shea and Danielle desired to have an elopement unlike anyone else’s.  Good thing they came to us!  Did you see the first half of their Norway elopement we shared last week?  If not, please go back HERE to see their beautiful Norway wedding ceremony in a stunning stave church and Norway wedding reception styled perfectly for two at a fairytale hotel called The Dalen.

The rest of their amazing adventure was spent hiking to see incredible fjord views, secret waterfalls, discovering sweet caves, and a ride on a riverboat down the historic Telemark Canal!  I’m excited for you to join us today to relive their epic adventure…

Norway Elopement at the Dalen Fairytale Hotel (Part 1)

 

When two extremely adventurous people meet while out on a daring expedition, only good things come from it.  Consequences of such meetings usually include endless laughs, incredible moments in time, and smiles that make your cheeks hurt.  And if you’re tremendously lucky, you walk away with a new forever friend.  Fortunately, in the story of Danielle and Shea not only are all the above true, but they also found their soulmates in each other.  These two met while hiking in Nepal.  Seriously!  …and they both just happened to be living in the same area of Australia!  Mean to be, right?!

 

So naturally after they had more journeys exploring the world together, they were searching for astounding elopement locations and a way to elope that would be very different than the typical avenues.  Danielle and Shea first reached out to us inquiring about an elopement in Iceland on Iceland Wedding Planner.  Shortly after we met on Skype and seeing we own Your Adventure Wedding, they were hooked on the adventure wedding concept we provide.  Torn between having a wedding in Iceland or Norway was tough but in the end, Norway won.  They fell in love with the Dalen Fairytale Hotel option we created for their elopement in Norway.

norway-elopement-photographer-your-adventure-wedding

Have you ever seen or been to the Dalen Fairytale Hotel?  It’s one of the oldest, fanciest, charming, and most notable hotels in Norway.  A place where Kings and Queens choose to stay at frequently.  The first time I visited years ago and pulled up to the front of the hotel I immediately felt like I was walking into a storybook.  As you’ll see from the Norway wedding photos below, it’s a very vivid and intoxicating place that sits along the historic Telemark Canal fjord.

norway-wedding-at-dalen-fairytale-hotel-your-adventure-wedding

There are too many beautiful images I want to share with you from their 10+ locations we ventured to throughout their adventure wedding in Norway, so you’ll be happy to know I’m splitting their fabulous day into 2 posts.  This week we will feature all the awesomeness we created in and around the Dalen Hotel, their Stave Church Norway wedding ceremony and a another secret spot.  Next week, stay tuned for the bulk of Shea and Danielle’s Norway wedding adventure photos where we discover more secret waterfalls, a cave, and take an adventure in a riverboat down a beautiful historical canal!

Adventure Weddings: What are they?

So, I get this question a lot, “What is an adventure wedding?”

My Answer: A once in a lifetime experience with all you love on one of the most unforgettable days of your life!  Combining a unique intimate adventure, one the most exciting days of your life, in the midst of a new country and culture!

It just makes sense!  Your next question: Who should consider an adventure wedding?

  • You’re a couple who is not traditional or follows “the token rules.”
  • You have an unquenchable thirst for curiosity and discovering!
  • You are seekers of experiences, not things.
  • You yearn for the unusual, exhilarating experiences and love to laugh.
  • Your Fearless and live life Limitless.
  • You’re not afraid to get your wedding attire dirty.

We want every couple who plans a destination wedding or elopement to consider an obscure offbeat location for their wedding day.  This may mean your renting super jeeps for your 40+ person guest list and spending the day sightseeing AWAY from typical tourist locations, around super-secret waterfalls, rain forests, caves, glacier lagoons or may mean you go on a 2 hour hike, dog sledding, or ice climbing!  It all depends on the adventure level =)

Here at Your Adventure Weddings, we thrive on adventure and love, and have for decades.  We take the time to get to know you as a couple, understand your wedding day goals and adventure level, to create personalized unforgettable adventure wedding options throughout the world. So whether you’re planning to elope or bring 50 of your closest friends and family we are excited to help you wed in places like Patagonia, Iceland, Estonia, Antarctica, Morocco, Madagascar, the list is endless and so are the adventures, so come join us!  We dare you!

I mean… Wouldn’t you want to say “I do” here?

  • Glacier Lagoons
  • Fairy-tale Waterfalls
  • In a magical Desert
  • On a Safari
  • Moss Covered Lava Fields
  • Basalt rocks protruding from the Sea
