Iceland Wedding & Elopement Timeline Examples

Don't know where to start planning your Iceland Adventure Elopement? Check out a few of the Iceland Elopement & Wedding day timelines I have below to get a better idea! This will give you a better idea of how your time could be used during your elopement day, as well as some of the things Iceland has to offer!

You don't have to follow these timelines to the dot!

Rather, these are meant to act as a point of reference or starting point to let you know what an Iceland Elopement could like like, just to get you started. Once your mind get's going & the inspiration starts to flow in, we'll create a day just for you, and live it out in your own fashion.

Each elopement day is created just for you!

That's right! I take great joy in seeing that no two elopement days are the same. You're not like any other couple, so why should your day look like someone else's? We'll build the day from the ground up, and it will be 100% you. No compromise.

Iceland Summer Elopement Timeline

Iceland Summer Elopement In The Midnight Sun (Eastfjords Elopement)

This provides an abnormally long "sunrise & sunset" & golden hour quite literally turns into "golden hours." While you might stay up a bit later past your bedtime to see this phenomenon, you'll be greatly rewarded with minimal people around you, & a unique collection of photos that feature only the best of lighting!

The Midnight Sun is caused by the tilt of the earth's axis toward the sun in the summer months. As a result, from May - August, there is always a little bit of daylight during the nighttime. The midnight sun is at it's peak on June 21st, when there is just over 21 hours of full daylight.
