A couple from the Netherlands are now able to call each other “husband” and “wife” after they exchanged vows at Vágar Island’s famous Trælanípan yesterday.

On a sunny and beautiful day in the Faroe Islands, a handful of spectators witnessed the first ever wedding ceremony that has been held on the popular Slave Rock, which has become famous for its stunning view where you can see lake Sørvágsvatn – right next to the one and only airport in the country – lying 40 meters above the level of sea.

Ari Seward, a local Faroese from Tórshavn, played during the unique ceremony, as reported by Faroese news webpage VP.fo.
