I’m originally from Norway, and I love travelling there for weddings. Nothing can compare to Norway when you’re talking winter weddings. Kjersti and Amund married in a wine cellar at a snowy mountain in Oslo, what more can you ask? An urban, awesome couple with the best style and the lovlies personalities, you say? This is it!
I’m so happy Rachel & Neale booked me for their fabulous city wedding in Edinburgh this fall. The wedding was very stylish, retro and full of DIY details – and even the bouquet was made by the bride! I love the slightly darker, cooler feel from this November wedding in Lothian Chambers and The Caves.
I couldn’t have dreamt of better weather to shoot in while I was in Gjøvik for a few family photoshoots last weekend. Overcast and reasonably cold, with snow covered trees and beautiful surroundings made for a brilliant backdrop for this happy family on Eiktunet.
I love using Edinburgh as a backdrop for photoshoots. This historical, beautiful and diverse city is just something else! We started off close to sunset on a cold November day, near Grassmarket in Edinburgh and ventured up to the Royal Mile with a few stops along the way. Edinburgh’s streets and closes are just stunning.
I was so nervous to photograph this wedding! Solveig (the bride) is a fellow wedding and fashion photographer that I got to know after a workshop with the Norwegian Wedding Magazine in 2014. I was also incredibly happy to do it, as both Solveig and Kenneth (the groom) both knew exactly what they wanted with their wedding – to celebrate love with their closest family and friends, party all night long, in style. The perfect recipe for a perfect wedding!
I’ve had a fantastically busy summer, and I loved it! Luckily, I managed to have one day of complete and utter me-time in July, and here’s the result; I visited one of the Norwegian fiords Lysefjorden and I ventured to see the iconic Kjeragbolten in 15 m/s wind and with only my sturdy Nikon F4 as companion.
Ok, so DIY reached an entirely new dimension in this Norwegian farm wedding! To mention a few things, the bride designed and sowed all bridesmaid’s dresses, picked berries from their own garden for wine, grew the salad leaves, and gathered field flowers from a nearby field for the bouquets. The groom hunted the moose they served, and brewed the beer, and made sitting groups out of straw from their own fields.
So technically these photos are not shot on film, which kind of was the idea behind the Explore Section of my blog, but I really wanted to do something different with the photos from these amazing ruins. And to be honest I couldn’t wait for the photos to be developed before I showed them off!
Meghan + Michael got married on a not surprisingly rainy Friday in the stunning Glasgow University Chapel with reception at Dalziel Park. However, rain has never stopped either me or my brides and grooms from still having the perfect wedding day.
Silje + Joachim’s wedding in Gjøvik was absolutely lovely! Silje has an incredible eye for details, from stickers underneath her shoes, to flowers, stationery and wedding dress hanger, everything was meticulously planned to suit a proper princess and her prince.
