First thing what comes up in my mind when thinking about Maja and Patrick are they were just so brave! Iceland is a magical natural wonder out of this world, it can take your breath away in every corner but will put you in a test as well. We agreed right away if in case it’s rainy and too windy we will keep the second day as a back-up. The wedding day was so fiercely windy, like nothing I have felt before and when looking back to those photos I truly think Maja and Patrick are one of the bravest couples I’ve ever had. We really fought with the weather, my lenses were constantly full of black sand and it was hard to move on the beach. But, it was so rewarding to see the most happy faces when we ended up on the iceberg fields so called “ice lagoon” in the end of our first day.

We drove more than 800km in two days in southern part of Iceland. After every corner the veil of dreams was lifted and we thought this is the mother of core beauty of all. Raw, clean, pure, you feel so small in it that it must be one of the most magical places to get married on earth. Mostly we were just improvising, exploring new places and places I’ve been before, not in a hurry, just enjoying it all despite the weather. Memorable days to remember forever. I’m so happy that I was able to be there with you, Maja and Patrick.

“We fell in love with Iceland for its romantic melancholy scenery – and its neutrality: with our families being spread all over the world (in China, Germany and the UK) it was impossible to include everybody, so a private wedding followed by receptions seemed the fairest way. Plus, this way we got to follow the wedding with the honeymoon right away! Iceland turned out to be the perfect destination –  so much more breathtaking in person, every turn of the road brought us to new, spectacular views. In fact we were so enamoured we drove 800km over the two wedding days ever in search of new vistas (which Mait so beautifully captured!) and we already can’t wait to go back.”

“Though it’s hard to select one, our favourite location was probably Jökulsárlón – the glacial lagoon on the south coast of Iceland. Huge, startlingly blue ice blocks drifting down the glacier and into the ocean, and being washed back onto the pebbled black beach by the waves. Truly out of this world.”

“We loved the endless lava fields deeply covered in moss – it’s the type of landscape that makes you believe in fairies, and trolls. And the ravines, and of course the waterfalls – especially Seljalandsfoss, where the actual ceremony took place – it was all so dramatic, and we loved every minute of it”
