Sometimes we get submissions that seem surreal, like they’re from a fairytale or a movie…We couldn’t believe the landscapes, colors, and textures in these photos from Theirry Joubert. He so beautifully captured this beachside elopement/vow renewal on the shore of Iceland, that we almost felt transported to this moment in time. When you look at these phenomenal photographs, you can just hear the waves crashing against these ancient rocks, and feel a slight chill in the air. It’s amazing how something simple, like an elopement on a beach, can become something so extraordinary when you’re surrounded by so much beauty.
More from the beautiful bride (Translated):
We were married in France in August 2012, and Thierry of Pretty Days was who we chose to cover the story of our marriage. His style seduced us, and we instantly fell in love. Marriages and weddings are beautiful, and like most people in the world, we felt that our day flew by too quickly. So, we decided to “elope” and renew our vows on the beach.
The wild land and untamed land of Iceland has always fascinated us, and we wanted to share this moment with Thierry again because he’s become so important to us. The weather didn’t always cooperate with us during our elopement- wind, clouds, rain… But the most important thing for us was to live this moment, take in the absolutely unreal landscape, renew our vows, and share this adventure with Thierry. We love these photos and can’t stop reliving this moment.
We’ve all been there, and we’ve all seen it happen — the curse of the bad bridesmaid dress is a very real thing. That’s why Pastel Dress Party was founded: for the love of bridesmaids.
