5 Reasons To Get Married In The Faroe Islands

I’ve just got back from a few days away and I think I may have found the perfect destination for couples looking for an adventure wedding in Europe. It’s uncrowded, uncomplicated and unbelievably wild and beautiful. But why would you want to get married in the Faroe Islands?

Five Reasons To Get Married In The Faroe Islands

1. A Legally Binding Ceremony Is Easy To Organise

Getting married overseas can sometimes be quite tricky, especially if you’re looking to do the legal part there too. However, when I did some research into getting legally married in the Faroe Islands, I couldn’t believe how easy it was. So if you’re curious, and want to know how you can get married in the Faroe Islands, you can find the information HERE

2. They Recognise Marriage Equality

The Faroe Islands offers legally binding marriages for same-sex couples. In fact, the first same-sex marriage ceremony in the Faroe Islands was a couple from the UK.

3. Even The Most Popular Locations Are Relatively Uncrowded

If you’ve ever visited Skogafoss waterfall in Iceland or hiked up to Trolltunga in Norway, you may have had to wait your turn to take a picture. And you’ll probably have struggled to get pictures without anyone else in them. Due to the remote location of the Faroe Islands, tourism numbers are much lower, and even the most popular locations are quiet in comparison. In fact, did you know that there are more sheep on the Faroe Islands than people?!

4. Getting Around Is Easy

Despite its remote location and rugged landscape, the Faroe Islands are not challenging to drive around. We visited in December when the roads were quite snowy in places, and we only had a small hatchback as our rental car. Even with the winter conditions, were able to drive everywhere without any problems at all. And because most of the larger islands are connected by tunnels or bridges so it’s easy to cover a lot of ground in a single day.

5. It’s So Beautiful, You’ll Never Want To Leave

I actually can’t put into words how insanely beautiful the Faroe Islands are. Just trust me, that when you see them, you’ll fall in love with them too.
