HOLY. WOW. I am not usually rendered speechless, but these images did just that. I’ll be honest – Iceland was never really on my ‘bucket list’ but Laura and Andrew’s first wedding anniversary photos have catapulted it straight there. Never have I seen such dramatic scenery and what a stunning place to renew vows! I just love this couple’s zest for life and for adventure. They chose Iceland as their location because it was their photographer’s favourite place in the world… so off they went.
Both of these lovebirds looked amazing and oh-so-happy, much like on their wedding day, which was also featured on WWW (hooray). Laura rocked another Stephanie Allin Couture dress and delicate gold and pearl accessories while Andrew wore a fashionable tweed jacket, vest, tie and skinny jeans from Dyfed Menswear. They exchanged beautiful words to each other on a glacier lagoon – so idyllic.
Thank you so much, Marc Smith Photography. If my hubby and I ever renew our vows in the UK or Iceland or anywhere on your side of the world, I’ll be contacting you.
“Andrew and I wanted to celebrate our first wedding anniversary with an adventure that we would remember for decades to come. Marc recommended his favourite place in the world…Iceland!!! A place which we had both heard so much about and jumped at the opportunity to explore.”
“I have always loved dresses from a young age and to have the opportunity to wear another amazing gown from Stephanie Allin Couture was simple a dream come true. I kept the hair and makeup very simple as the backdrops were breathtaking. We almost wanted to blend in with the scenery. My jewellery was from Gill Clements in Mumbles, Swansea. They hand-make each piece and their new gold range complimented my colouring and dress perfectly. Andrew’s grey tweed suit was from Dyfed Menswear, paired with skinny jeans and a Ralph Lauren skull & cross bone tie.”
“We visited some breathtaking views, including the glacier lagoon and the abandoned plane wreck – just to name a few!. The black sandy beaches were one of the most spectacular settings I have ever witnessed, Andrew even found a perfectly carved heart shaped stone under our footing, a souvenir that has so much love behind it.”
“Our most special memory would be standing on the glacier lagoon reading our wedding vows to one another, with the nearest contact being the wild seals in the glacier lagoon. If felt like a snippet out of a Disney film, a magical moment that will stay with us forever and always. What a way to celebrate a first wedding anniversary!”
“Marc’s passion, love and enthusiasm for photography is shown at its very best within these images. We walked miles some days to get the perfect backdrop and I am sure you will agree it was worth every step. I would recommend Marc to anyone who is looking for that extra sparkle from their wedding album, it truly is photography at its very best! His professionalism and dedication pours out in each image.”

Laura and Andrew, thank you so much for sharing your anniversary shoot with us. These images were such a dream to view and your story is heart-warming (thank goodness, as I did feel a little chilly looking at you both holding and standing in ice!). I hope your second anniversary is just as exciting as your first! Abby xx
