Top elopement locations in Iceland

So, let the adventure begin!

What to Consider When Eloping in Iceland:

A Legal Ceremony vs. A Symbolic Ceremony

When considering an elopement, couples often find themselves with the decision between a legal ceremony and a symbolic one. 

Think of a legal ceremony as the official, legally recognised marriage that happens on your elopement day with a celebrant and witnesses. (If you're going for an intimate vibe without guests, we've got you covered—we can be your witnesses!)

Now, a symbolic ceremony? That's the heartfelt, love-filled ceremony without the official paperwork. Maybe you're doing it this way because it feels right for you. For couples going the symbolic route, they usually sort out the legal side either before or after the big day, with the help of a celebrant or even just doing it yourself online. Your love story, your way!

From experience with our couples who've chosen to elope in Iceland, many decide to take care of the legalities before arriving for their intimate celebration. This approach ensures that although they may not be officially married on the day of their elopement, they can fully immerse themselves in the moment without any pressure or stress related to paperwork.

What’s the difference?

Elopement Legal Requirements in iceland

For those who are set on the beautiful idea of legally eloping in Iceland, that can definitely be your reality. But it’s important to be aware of certain legal prerequisites.
Firstly, both parties should be 18 years or older and not presently married. 

You will require either a celebrant, priest or an officiant in attendance for your elopement day. They will also be able to help guide you through the paperwork process to ensure your marriage is legally binding. 

A pivotal step in this process is submitting a Marriage Notification known as Hjónavígsluskýrsla. This form should be completed by yourself, your partner and your chosen officiant. 

You will also be required to have the following documents available: 

  • Marriage Notification (Hjónavígsluskýrsla)
  • Original Birth Certificates
  • Valid Passports
  • Certificate of Marital Status (to confirm you’re not already married)
  • Divorce Degrees or Widow Certificates (if applicable) 
  • Confirmation of Travel (Plane tickets with entry and exit date, etc.) 

The Best Time of Year to Elope in iceland

  • Iceland's winter brings colder temperatures, averaging between -2 to 3°C (28-37°F), offering a snow-covered wonderland for elopements. With limited daylight, couples can exchange vows beneath the enchanting starry skies, making for a truly magical experience. While temperatures can be chilly, the pristine snowscapes and the cozy warmth of indoor venues create a unique and intimate setting for winter elopements in Iceland. And don’t forget about the glorious beauty of the Northern Lights! 

  • Popular Activities: Snowmobiling, ice-skating, hot springs, ice fishing, ice-caving.

    Be prepared for some unpredictability, and occasional rain showers, but embrace the stunning landscapes with all the additional daylight! 

    *It’s important to note that summer is peak tourist season. 

  • Popular Activities: ATV tour, kayaking, swimming, puffin watching. Did you know it is possible to go ice-caving in summer too?

Summer (JUN - AUG)
  • Iceland's autumn sees temperatures between 5 to 10°C (41-50°F). With shorter days and changing foliage, eloping couples can enjoy a crisp, moody atmosphere. While weather can be variable, the striking contrast of vibrant fall colours against volcanic landscapes offers a captivating backdrop for intimate ceremonies at iconic locations like waterfalls and black sand beaches.

  • Popular Activities: Harvest tour, helicopter ride, river rafting. 
  • Iceland's spring brings temperatures from 0 to 8°C (32-46°F). As the landscape emerges from winter, eloping couples can enjoy budding vegetation, thawing ice, and flowing waterfalls. With longer days and picturesque scenes, spring offers a fresh and captivating setting for intimate ceremonies against Iceland's unique volcanic backdrop.

  • Popular Activities: Biking, hiking, horse riding, whale watching.
