28th Feb – 3rd March 2016
As well as photographing weddings in Iceland, I was lucky enough to head over for a few days on a break. We had amazing weather and spent the time driving around the south of Iceland.
We found this amazing black sand beach near Selfoss that had ice washed up on the shore.
As many tourists do we had to stop and check out the horses. We spend one of our days driving around Þingvellir (thingvellir) National Park. Home to many Game of Thrones scenes and the tectonic plat divide between America and Europe.
We also stopped at Gullfoss. One of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. We were there very early in the morning so there was no tourists around. We were driven around by my Icelandic friends that I met whilst travelling last year.
Another famous waterfall – Skogafoss – where one of my wedding couples got married last year. Its one of my favourite places to visit and a perfect place to get married.
We hired a cabin of off Airbnb and stayed near flúðir. We were out in the middle of nowhere and it was amazing. Here is our driveway at sunset.
The light in Iceland in winter is just amazing. Really great for photos.
On our last day my friend picked us up and took us to this breathtaking place in Þjórsárdalur valley, Gjáin. It took us a while to get there through all the snow drifts but it looks like we were the first ones there in 2016. Word of warning though, don’t try and go here in the winter without the right car!
Crazy views from the top! and ace weather. We could of asked for a better trip. I would love to do more weddings here – please have a read at my Iceland Wedding Blog and get in touch if you want to do some amazing photos!
