“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.”
Meeting Davíð Geir Jónasson, changed the course of my life forever.
Do you remember how we met? In that moment, as clique as I know it sounds, I knew my life wouldn’t be the same again. Seriously, in all of the millions of people I have met, never have I ever met someone like Davíð. He looks at me the way all women want (and deserves) to be looked at by a partner. I’ve never laughed harder, never travelled farther around the world with anyone and still left smiling by the end of it. To put it raw and frankly, I’m addicted to him. His energy, book to street smarts, risky wit, infinite positivity and the way he brings out the best in everyone he encounters. He adventures at the same level as me (some might even say higher and I might agree).
So where does an Adventure Wedding Planner / Photographer and a Filmmaker get married? Well… We eloped in the Lofoten Islands (Northern Norway). Have you ever heard of these islands before? If not, go HERE and read up on them!
The shapes, the tones, the textures of the vivid mountains of the Lofoten Islands cannot be found anywhere else in the world. They come chock full of mystery and unforgettable romance. So come along with me today as I, my super talented friend (and colleague) Jean Smith and her brilliant cinematographer husband Travis Smith share with you the unbelievable documentation from our Lofoten Islands wedding day.
With a smile, Ann Peters + Team (Lofoten Islands Norway Wedding Planners)

When two extremely adventurous people meet while out on a daring expedition, only good things come from it. Consequences of such meetings usually include endless laughs, incredible moments in time, and smiles that make your cheeks hurt. And if you’re tremendously lucky, you walk away with a new forever friend. Fortunately, in the story of Danielle and Shea not only are all the above true, but they also found their soulmates in each other. These two met while hiking in Nepal. Seriously! …and they both just happened to be living in the same area of Australia! Mean to be, right?!
So naturally after they had more journeys exploring the world together, they were searching for astounding elopement locations and a way to elope that would be very different than the typical avenues. Danielle and Shea first reached out to us inquiring about an elopement in Iceland on Iceland Wedding Planner. Shortly after we met on Skype and seeing we own Your Adventure Wedding, they were hooked on the adventure wedding concept we provide. Torn between having a wedding in Iceland or Norway was tough but in the end, Norway won. They fell in love with the Dalen Fairytale Hotel option we created for their elopement in Norway.
Have you ever seen or been to the Dalen Fairytale Hotel? It’s one of the oldest, fanciest, charming, and most notable hotels in Norway. A place where Kings and Queens choose to stay at frequently. The first time I visited years ago and pulled up to the front of the hotel I immediately felt like I was walking into a storybook. As you’ll see from the Norway wedding photos below, it’s a very vivid and intoxicating place that sits along the historic Telemark Canal fjord.
There are too many beautiful images I want to share with you from their 10+ locations we ventured to throughout their adventure wedding in Norway, so you’ll be happy to know I’m splitting their fabulous day into 2 posts. This week we will feature all the awesomeness we created in and around the Dalen Hotel, their Stave Church Norway wedding ceremony and a another secret spot. Next week, stay tuned for the bulk of Shea and Danielle’s Norway wedding adventure photos where we discover more secret waterfalls, a cave, and take an adventure in a riverboat down a beautiful historical canal!

Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, is where the mysterious and intriguing “W” trek of the Andes mountains live and breathe.

2.) Vestmannaeyjar Islands (Iceland)
As I’m sure you’ve seen, Iceland is an amazing location to hold your destination wedding, but have you ever considered the islands off of Iceland? The Vestmannaeyjar Islands are comprised of 15 Archipelago Islands that were all born from eruptions. Which means the islands feature sharp and interesting cliff-lines, basalt rock formations, the famed “elephant rock,” quaint fishing villages, and a gorgeous Stave (wooden) Church!
3.) Faroe Islands (Denmark)
What other place has more grass covered houses than anywhere in the world, more sheep than people, jagged cliff edges that will get your heart pumping, hikes that are self-finding, a serenity that you thought only exists in your mind, majestic waterfalls, and a place that still offers a deep and rich culture that mixes the best of the best Nordic worlds of Denmark and Iceland?! Nowhere, Natta, No place but the magnificent… Faroe Islands! I might even dare to say parts of it made me feel like I was exploring Narnia!
4.) Lofton Islands (Norway)
The Lofoten Islands is a place where heaven and earth meet! What better place to hold an enticing elopement or intimate Norway wedding adventure than on the top of a mountain with stunning fjords behind?! During your wedding day in Norway’s Lofoten Islands, (once you pick up your jaw off the ground) you’ll become one with the sea and the mountains!
5.) Ushuaia, Argentina (the most Southern city in the world)
For you adventure seekers that love to hike and explore, there are endless options for you in Ushuaia!

Madagascar is a magical island off of the coast of Africa. There you’ll find the famed Isalo National Park, unforgettable mountains, wild adventures, hikes, waterfalls, crystal clear blue-green water, unique tree’s, plants and animals you have never seen before. It’s the essence of an adventure wedding location, undiscovered! Be one of the first couples to hold your unforgettable destination wedding in Madagascar, I dare you!
7.) Morocco (Africa)
Morocco is one of my favorite countries because it houses the highest peak in Africa named, Toubakal which stands higher than 13,000 feet! Would you dare to wed at the top? We’d be right there with you photographing! Oh so, many options to choose from like the Mediterranean Coast, the Sahara Desert. Draa Valley, the Rif & Atlas Mountains, and our endless secret locations!
8.) The Baltic Countries
There are 3 gorgeous hidden gems of states tucked within the beautiful Baltic Sea. Estonia! Latvia! Lithuania! All should be on your adventure wedding list, because they are full of rich culture, eco-friendly, one of the world’s greenest countries, has an endless list of romantic adventures for couples, beautiful pristine beaches, it’s also a country filled with art, wooden architecture, castles and manor houses!
9.) Peru (South America)
The Peruvian culture is vivid, rich in tradition, and one of the friendliest I have encountered throughout my worldwide travels. The country is full of ancient ruins, the Amazon River, marvelous Andes mountains, and countless adrenaline junkie sports just waiting for you to partake in!
10.) Illulisat, Greenland (Denmark)
This Nordic wedding location is for couples who are truly fearless explorers at heart, cold weather lovers, and have an unquenchable curiosity! Is this you?
