Real Weddings

I am a wedding photographer with a photojournalistic + editorial approach covering weddings in Edinburgh and beyond. I’d also love to travel with you wherever you are.

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.

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.

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.
