Iceland’s beauty never fails to astound me and I can completely understand why it’s such an attractive place for couples to elope to. The dramatic scenery, the atmospheric weather and that sense of being the only people on the planet is incredibly romantic. Today’s Icelandic elopement inspiration showcases a side of Iceland I’ve never seen before, the mysterious black sand beaches of Vik. They make such a dramatic backdrop to couple portrait shots and I love how the Matthew Oliver Weddings team have embraced the wild beauty of their surroundings with a wild spirited couple. The authenticity of this shoot just shines through each image.
As well as being authentic, for me the sign of an excellent styled shoot is that it tells a story – it’s all very well styling something to perfection, but what people want is to really see, really feel, what it would be like to get married there. Photographers Daniel Colvin and Meredith Bacon have most definitely done this, we’re instantly transported to Iceland’s magical shores…and what a place it is!
