This pair had a wedding in Iceland followed by a honeymoon which would explore the entire island. Natural cave exploring was next on the agenda where they waded through water to get to a stunning spot. Shortly after, a picnic awaited them on a private black sand beach. Hand-in-hand venturing through moss-covered lava fields followed lunch. The photographer harnessed in and repelled off a cliff at the next stop to get an epic shot of the couple with a secret waterfall. They explored a colorful lighthouse, bird watched among golden cliffs, and ended the day at a hidden geothermal area.
Are you ready for some seriously EPIC shots of this Iceland honeymoon and elopement?
Entrepreneurs and adventure lovers, Sandi and Jimi, decided at the last minute to renew their vows with their three kiddos in a cenote (a natural pit) while traveling in Playa del Carmen. Pulling from their own cultures and experiences, they crafted a beautiful and intimate ceremony to re-bind their family together.
After that it was getting down to some serious play time with the kids in the wild foliage of Playa del Carmen, which is in no short supply of beauty. Let’s put on our sun-soaked goggles for this cave vow renewal in Mexico.
Sheena and Todd live in Seattle, but wanted to celebrate their Norse souls in the land of fire and ice by have a Norse cave wedding in Iceland. But they weren’t choosing any old location… they surprised their guests with a ceremony in a 4600-year-old lava tube cave! Y’all know we love a cave wedding.
They had an honorary fire, a Norse celebrant, oath rings, a Viking horn, and the groom not only presented the bride with a sword as a gift but also read his vows from it.
Mindy and Luke had searched for a venue in which a large number of family and friends could come and celebrate, camp out, and enjoy a champagne toast. Believe it or not, there was little to be found until they found the Woodward Cave in Woodward, PA. You know we LOVE a good cave wedding. With a barefoot wedding party, retro clothing, guests and participants offering everything from fire dancing to ukulele playing and acroyoga, this rockstar couple really had a magical cave wedding.
Can you even get over how gorgeous this goth couple is? With a custom-made black wedding dress and veil, amazing thrones, a coffin ring box, bleeding candles, a HUGE and amazingly goth cake, and of course, a CAVE RECEPTION… we’re sure this wedding will get your heart racing. Don’t miss the Tim Burton-esque invitations, the lush red and black bouquet, and the hilariously charming sand ceremony gone rogue.
As far as alternative venues go, caves are pretty rad. The lighting, the water, the flippin’ ambiance… it’s a recipe for us digging the hell out of it. We don’t see many weddings in this type of venue, but when we do, it’s photo time. Here are some of our favorite cave weddings from Offbeat Bride past.
