They found themselves in the ideal setting to exchange heartfelt vows backed by the breathtaking natural beauty of a waterfall.

Junebug Planner Pink Iceland’s Insights on this Intimate Gluggafoss Wedding

As wedding planners, we absolutely loved the choices of the couples regarding what they wanted their wedding to be. Intimate, relaxed, fun, and so much about spending time with their guests. Most of the wedding picnic drinks were non-alcoholic, with different options like Icelandic sparkling tea, different options of juices infused with fruits, and Arctic herbal tea to keep the guests warm; it was a real hit. We can’t let their incredible wedding outfits go unmentioned; we’re so in awe of the glamor, beauty, and creativity of the outfits. They are just magnificent, and they look so great against the beautiful Icelandic nature backdrop. We still keep in touch with this wonderful couple, and they send us sweet messages reminiscing about how wonderful the day was. They also shared with us that their families are still bringing it up and wish to go back. This day gave us so much as planners, seeing and feeling the emotions of our couple—it’s the best part about being a wedding planner.

From Waterfalls to Picnic Tables: Crafting a Unique Reception Experience

The surroundings were perfect for this setup! The waterfall, the lake, and the trees. Greenery all around, keeping it so intimate and beautiful. You don’t have to have the traditional sit-down reception dinner in the evening. Why not try something different, use the evening sun in Iceland, and plan a reception picnic outdoors with great food and drinks? It is relaxing and fun, something different but very Icelandic. Icelanders love camping in the summer/fall, listening to music while eating, and drinking in good company throughout the evening. As it was a group of all ages, it was brilliant to have chairs and picnic tables for those who wouldn’t feel comfortable sitting on picnic blankets and pillows.
