After a short immediate family shoot, Tyler and Steven followed me for some photos around the city centre, until they went to get marriet at Augustine United Church, continued by their reception in Greyfriars Kirk, just a stonethrow away.
It started out to be a pretty rainy, windy and possibly gloomy day in Stavanger on 19th August. Our bride and groom didn’t let this stop them from pursuing a beach photo shoot after their ceremony in Stavanger, and were rewarded by all kinds of weather, mostly including NO RAIN! Which is a pretty big deal on the west coast of Norway.
This Dumtochty (try and say that out loud fast) castle wedding, was like being in a real fairy tale! This is one of my favourite venues to date. Gorgeous grounds, castle, weather, church and friends and family from near and far, made this day extra special for Solveig and Dougie, and their wee daughter Isla of course.
I’m so excited to share Carol + Andrè’s wedding in Cairo with you! We celebrated their love poolside at a gorgeous private estate, with oodles of fairy-lights and lots of luscious details. This wedding was so much fun to attend and an absolute pleasure to photograph, despite it being one of the hottest days Cairo saw in July.
From the moment they booked me for their wedding, I was drawn into Laura and Jake’s wedding planning. I loved how Laura sent me little updates on Snapchat as they went, especially when she found the one wedding dress. After a lovely meeting over a couple of drinks in Edinburgh, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding at Fasque Castle, midway between Dundee and Aberdeen.
Katie and Ross made their own unique timeline for their perfect wedding day! A first look in a private garden, followed by a wonderful, intimate humanist ceremony at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street in Edinburgh’s New Town, a wedding breakfast with their nearest family, and a drinks reception at Marlin’s Wynd in Old Town.
High School sweethearts Rebekka and Andreas finally got married after 10 years together! Since they both know each other and their respective families so well, they were more relaxed, more flexible and they disregarded tradition; they opted for a first look before their church ceremony.
I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to kick off wedding season 2017! All the way back in Norway, Karianne and Anders had an outdoor wedding ceremony in the garden of Sorenskrivergården, Hokksund that was so full of love, music and happiness.
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 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!
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.
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.
Who would’ve thought that a May wedding in Scotland could equal sun, 20 degrees celcius, palm trees, a beach and an outdoor wedding ceremony? Big congrats and the very best of wishes goes to Laura + Gavin and their wee boy Cameron.
I just LOVE it when I go through images from a wedding and they are just bursting with feelings and happy people. This just happened with the wedding of Lisa and Eivind in Bergen and at Legenes Hus – such an emotional day full of beauty, love and intelligence. I couldn’t ask for more!
Finding your perfect wedding photoshoot location should be easy and fun, and usually a professional photographer don’t need you to go atop a mountain og swim in the ocean to take good or unique photographs – even though that would be pretty awesome and if you’d want that I’m totally in! Sometimes it’s just about figuring out what you’d like your end product, your photos, should look and feel like. Of course as your photographer I can help you with suggestions, but what’s really important is that you choose a location based on your style and personality as a couple. And if you give it some thought before the day, you’re more likely to be happy with the results because it makes sense to you.
This elegant wedding was my last of the 2015 season, and this time I was a guest too! The groom is a childhood friend of mine, and we even grew up on the same street and went on tons of wonderful hiking trips together with friends in the Norwegian mountains, or just chatting on our way home from school. The bride and groom are both talented musicians, and they played in me and my husbands wedding band in 2012. The following photos is my way of saying thank you!
I was so excited to finally do an urban wedding! The 2015 wedding season has been everywhere around Gjøvik, my recent countryside hometown, where lakes and forests dominate the landscape. This October wedding was in the heart of Oslo, and the extremely sporty couple had their wedding in Gamle Aker Church, photo shoot at St. Hans-haugen, and reception at a sports stadium, Bislett. What fun!
I was honoured to photograph Rikke & Simen’s elegant and classy wedding on this rainy september day. Of course, like always, the skies cleared for our photo shoot, but the day was looking pretty grey and dark in the early hours. Anyways, this wasn’t going to discourage this incredibly happy couple and their guests from having the best day ever!
This day was packed with elegance and pretty shiny details. I loved capturing Lisa and Tor Kristian’s big day in Gjøvik and at Sigstad Gård. The shoot we did at Mustad Næringspark was great, but I just loved that we had a few minutes to photograph later in the evening, during the golden hour. Even though we didn’t have much time, and the skies were cloudy, we managed to get some golden moments.
This wedding turned out to be a real dream. I didn’t realize that this wonderful couple had put so much effort into making the wedding as awesome as it turned out! I loved everything from the hotel prep session to the humanitarian barn ceremony and the honesty and raw emotions expressed, the details with milk jars and straws, and the hilarious end of dinner speech – I just couldn’t hold my tears back! Which says a lot as I average 200 speeches a year. You heard right – I had to count again after calculating this, but it’s matter of fact! Norwegian tradition is on average 8-12 speeches a wedding.
I knew I’d love this colourful wedding the moment I heard “old VW caravan”. When my brides and grooms dare to challenge the norms of white weddings dresses and black suits, I literally jump with excitement!
