This Intimate Reykjavik Wedding at Iðnó Theatre Had the Most Breathtaking Light

August 13, 2018 | colleen

Julia and Robert’s Reykjavik wedding is nothing short of classic vibes with a modern twist. These two exchanged vows at Iðnó Theatre surrounded by candles and string lights for the ultimate intimate and romantic feel. Not only did Pink Iceland help plan and coordinate the perfect day for Julia and Robert, but they assisted in planning a full weekend worth of activities and events for their guests. There was nothing more magical about this wedding, besides the creative forces of Magic Wedding Photographer who documented the day in such a unique and special way.

Iðnó Theatre, Reykjavik, Iceland



The best piece of advice I can give is to try and “let go”. Being a perfectionist when there are so many little details and elements to planning a wedding can be overwhelming. Prioritize and focus your time on the things that are the most important to you and your partner. Be clear with your wedding vision and let the team that you hired take on the rest. They are the professionals after all!





Our wedding planner Eva presented us with several options, and right away, we knew Iðnó Theatre was “the one”. The venue itself has many charms, as it was the oldest playhouse in Iceland, built in 1896. We liked that it had character, history, and multiple rooms and floors to accommodate all our needs. Our ceremony was held in the theatre/main room, and cocktail hour was hosted on the second floor while they revamped the main room for the reception. The size was also perfect for the number of guests we had. It did not feel too big or too small. The location was centrally located in downtown Reykjavik by the city pond, offering our guests great views and plenty of photo ops.

The most memorable part of the day was when we exchanged vows. Although our guests were in the room, there was a feeling of intimacy and vulnerability as we made a lifetime commitment to each other.

The most important thing in planning the wedding was ensuring our guests had a great time. They were flying all the way to Iceland so we wanted to create an experience they would never forget. Our wedding weekend kicked off with a private sightseeing trip and welcome party at the Blue Lagoon. It was a great way for our guests to mingle and get to know each other before the big day. On the actual wedding day, the food, drinks, and music were the priority. The added touch of a disco ball was a sure fire way to get the dance party started.

The look and feel I was going for on my wedding day can be best described as “ethereal elegance.” The dress had the perfect amount of femininity, bohemian touches, and intricate bead and lace detailing for my frame. I knew that I wanted long sleeves since we would be getting married in Iceland and would want more coverage. For my bridesmaids, I liked how dreamy the tulle dresses looked from Monique Lhuillier and chose a blue and grey color palette that complemented the rest of my wedding color palette. I kept the hair, makeup, and accessories simple since there was a lot going on in the dress already.

My favorite photo is the one Magic took of us near the geothermal power plant with the steam rising from the ground. It looked like we were on Mars.
