Iceland weddings for all
Iceland celebrates diversity and welcomes people of all nationalities, race and sexual orientation. LGBT people can get married in Icelandic churches. In addition to major religions, people come to Iceland to get married by a priest or priestess of Ásatrú, a form rooted in old Icelandic paganism.
The ceremonies can take place in all kinds of venues, a religious venue, in the middle of nature, a small church on the countryside, a boat, on a mountain-top or wherever the couple would like to tie the knots. Some couples prefer to get married with the Icelandic landscape as the backdrop to their ceremony while other use nature for their wedding photos.
In the last few years, Iceland’s restaurants have gotten praise from visitors from all over the world. Reykjavík now has one Michelin star restaurant. The variety of cuisines has grown and restaurants offering cuisine from all parts of the world can be found. Tasty vegetarian dishes are on every menu of the main restaurants of Reykjavík.
