My Wedding – The Toast

After the ceremony had finished, we put the champagne on ice -quite literally- ready for a toast. It all felt so surreal but after the ceremony I had the chance to just hug Aaron and speak to him for a few moments whilst we took in the fact we were finally married and how amazing it had been.

Aaron went to open one of the bottles of champagne but we forgot it had been on a plane and shaken up considerably.


It exploded and the cork went flying up into the sky. I was so worried as we would never leave anything there, it was so important that when we left it was as if we were never there. Amazingly it landed on the slab of ice above and an ice climber passed it back down to us. I had forgot they were even around so it was pretty surreal.


We all toasted with champagne and were joined by our celebrant, driver and my mother-in-law who had been busy taking photos.


We stopped for lunch by the glacier, as our hotel had packed us a picnic to take. Included was a special request I had made, for an Icelandic happy marriage cake or Hjónabandssaela.


After lunch we started walking back to the car to go to our next spot. By this point our trainers were looking slightly worse for wear, although somewhat amazingly my dress was pretty pristine.
