Iceland certainly doesn’t have a shortage of incredible locations for your destination wedding. In almost every town you’ll find adorable little churches for a legal ceremony. And if you’ve already done the legal part then you’re free to let your imagination run wild when choosing a location for your vow ceremony. Iceland also offers a wonderful range of accommodation for you and your wedding party, with luxury boutique hotels, rustic farm stays and quirky hostels.
The famous black church at Búðir on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is one of the most popular spots for weddings with very good reason. This beautiful black chruch sits right on the coast, with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other, surronded with moss covered lava fields that look like something from another planet. And the boutique Hótel Búðir is right next to it.
Hótel Búðir is the perfect location for exploring the Snaefellsness Peninsula, with the famous Kirkjufell mountain, dramatic black cliffs, glistening still fjords and striking orange lighthouses.

On the south coast of Iceland, just over an hour from Reykjavic, the Hotel Ranga not only provides a rustic but luxurious location for your wedding reception with its log cabin styled rooms and outdoor hot tubs, but their in-house wedding co-coordinator can help you plan and arrange your ceremony too. And in the winter time, they’ll even call your room to alert you if the northern lights appear so that you don’t miss out.
Hotel Ranga is in a perfect location for exploring both the golden circle and the south coast of Iceland with it’s stunning waterfalls and also the famous black beach at Vik.
