Vi elsker Nord-Norge og vi elsker bryllup, og sammen; så perfekt som det kan bli. Norge har mye vakkert og flott å by på, men der oppe i nord er det en helt egen magi, kanskje fordi undertegnede selv er halvt nordlending. Men midnattsol, spektakulær natur, og kjærleik blir liksom aldri feil. Superflinke Marie hos Mint & Love har vært med på hele feiringen til Astri & Chris og dette fantastiske bryllupet på idylliske Skjerstad; hun norsk og han engelsk. Vi begynner med dagen før dagen bilder, så finn deg noe godt og varmt i koppen, len deg tilbake og bare nyt og la deg inspirere!

FROM THE COUPLE: The lovestory of Norwegian Astri & British Chris started in Brazil back in 2007. After a few months in the sun the samba, caipirinha and volunteer work was switched with Scandinavian cold as Chris followed Astri back to Oslo, Norway.

Chris being an musician soon after started the band Casa Murilo with a fellow Brit. The band has since played everything from living rooms to Norway’s biggest festivals and have grown a solid fan base. Fast forward 8 years to the wedding weekend, June 20th 2015.

The wedding was set to Astri’s hometown, a tiny, beautiful place in the North of Norway called Skjerstad. The town has around 100 people living there, and everyone helped out for the wedding. Friends and family lent out their houses, cooked and help set everything up. Astri’s father is the priest in Skjerstad, and he was the one performing the ceremony while her mother played the entrance on the orgel. Astri was followed down the isle by two of her best friends from childhood.

The celebrations were filled with Music, midnight sun and so much love and laughter it made my heart sing being there for the experience.
