Maja and Patrick are an incredible couple! If you’re worried about a little rain on your wedding day, take a look at what they faced on their big day; wind so strong it was hard to stand and clouds of black sand attacking them as they had their unique images taken. Thanks to the couple, and Mait from MJ Studios for sharing this magical set of images with us.
“First thing that comes into my mind when thinking about Maja and Patrick are they were just so brave! Iceland is a magical natural wonder out of this world, it can take your breath away in every corner but will put you to the test as well. We agreed right away that we would keep the second day as back-up incase their wedding day was too windy,” explained photographer Mait.
“The wedding day was so fiercely windy, like nothing I have felt before. We really fought with the weather, my lenses were constantly full of black sand and it was hard to move on the beach. But, it was so rewarding to see the most happy faces when we ended up on the iceberg fields so called “Ice Lagoon” at the end of our first day. We drove more than 800km in two days through the southern part of Iceland. Raw, clean, pure, Iceland makes you feel so small, it has to be one of the most magical places to get married on earth,” added Mait.
“We fell in love with Iceland for its romantic melancholy scenery – and its neutrality: with our families being spread all over the world – in China, Germany and the UK – it was impossible to include everybody, so a private wedding followed by receptions seemed the fairest way. Plus, this way we got to follow the wedding with the honeymoon right away! Iceland turned out to be the perfect destination – so much more breathtaking in person, every turn of the road brought us to new, spectacular views. In fact we were so enamoured we drove 800km over the two wedding days ever in search of new vistas and we already can’t wait to go back,” said Maja.
