Iceland truly believes in allowing people to have their love and their life as they want, without covering them or restraining them, and the best part is that you can capture this love blossoming in the pictures which will look enchantingly sweet, due to the atmosphere and surroundings.
The English influence settled as the Icelanders also implied their course of the weddingas theirs, a white beautiful bridal dress for the bride and a three-piece suit for the groom, where all of this is fine and very common, the thing which actually took a turn is the vows, where the bride and groom both say out loud their promises, their memories and their moments. Since the marriage between any two people from any background is allowed in the country; people translate Icelandic to English in order to convert their vows into something that is comprehensive to all. The vows which are the most personal and the one thing that is most wanted by the bride and groom to be theirs, they say the vows in English. This is also true because a large population of Iceland speaks English.
People who are getting married must be at least 18 years old,and they must not be married. In the case of previous marriage, the person must have the proof of divorce. Since the rules of getting married are upright, there is a need for documentation. Everything is documented in order to keep a record for every person. All the papers that are required from the people who are getting married must be the original ones as that will precede the process. But all these documents must have a sealed translation with them if the language is not English or any Scandinavian languages. The documents are required to be submitted by the people at least 3 weeks before the wedding date.
If one however needs to use his marriage certificate outside Icelandic, one will have to translate Icelandic to English and make it a certified translation.
