Oh, you know…this is just another real wedding that might be THE MOST GORGEOUS ONE WE’VE EVER SEEN.
We are that excited we had to tell you in CAPS.
I mean…seriously?! This looks like it’s out of a modern fairytale…it’s INSANELY pretty.
OK I’ll calm down. It’s just that Maja and Patrick’s real wedding in Iceland–captured by the utterly amazing Mait from M&J Studios–is so stunning we are in shock. More from the bride and groom, below:
“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 a reception 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 enamored we drove 800 km (497 miles) over the two wedding days in search of new vistas (which our photographer so beautifully captured!). We already can’t wait to go back.”

From the Photographer:
“The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Maja and Patrick is that they were just so brave! Iceland is a magical, natural wonder…it can take your breath away in every corner… but it will test you as well. We agreed right away that if it was too rainy or windy we would keep the second day as a back-up. The wedding day was so fiercely windy–like nothing I have felt before–and when looking back to those photos I truly think Maja and Patrick are one of the bravest couples I’ve ever had. 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 of the so called “ice lagoon” at the end of our first day.
We drove more than 800 km in two days to a southern part of Iceland. After every corner the veil of dreams were lifted…it was raw, clean, pure…you feel so small in it that it must be one of the most magical places to get married on earth. Mostly we were just improvising, exploring new places and places I’ve been before…Not in a hurry, just enjoying it all despite the weather. These were memorable days to remember forever. I’m so happy that I was able to be there with you, Maja and Patrick!”
