Hotel Budir Wedding Guide

Hotel Budir in Iceland is an absolutely incredible wedding venue. It’s located in Eastern Iceland on Snaefellsness peninsula among the jaw-dropping scenery of Iceland. There are cliffs, waterfalls, moss covered lava rocks, and ocean inlet – all of which can be seen from this beautiful hotel. The Hotel Budir also happens to be right next to the famous little Black Church so many are familiar with in Iceland.

The Location

The Hotel Budir is – in my experience so far- the best place to stay in Iceland. I have traveled quite extensively in Iceland and photographed many weddings in this country. And so far, I have not come across another hotel and wedding venue so thoughtfully designed as Hotel Budir. When you drive out of Reykjavik to hotel budir, you will drive through some stunning sections of Iceland’s incredible scenery. Hotel Budir is located a couple hours outside Reykjavic, but every time I come upon this hotel, I feel a sense of awe. It truly is a work of art in the most pristine landscape of Iceland.

Design and Ambiance

Hotel Budir has a modern design, and is full of windows. This not only allows guests to enjoy the incredible scenery, but also to complement the rugged landscape from the outside. The hotel is full of luxurious details and a fantastic restaurant- things that make you feel extra cozy as you look out the window to the notoriously unpredictable icelandic weather. There’s nothing like sipping a hot tea, sitting on a plush cushion as you gaze out the window to watch the snow fall. Or looking out the window to see the northern lights in the winter.

The Landscape

As a wedding photographer, the scenery surrounding Hotel Budir is something that I really appreciate. Capturing the golden sunsets over the moss and mountains is something really special. And wandering over to the water to capture the ocean among the landscape is just a feeling so serene I can hardly describe it. You really have to go to know just how incredible Iceland really is.
