Ah, how we just love this wedding, from magical Rennesøy. One of Norway’s most beautiful nature and surroundings. Love their personal style of the wedding and that rustic and authentic vibe, the amazing Damien Milan have captured so perfectly. And their tips for other couples; “Leave room for things to be different from what you had originally planned. Try to be as creative as possible with recycling things for your wedding, you save a lot of money that way! And invest in a good photographer! It’s so worth it! “

Favourite Memories: The whole day was more than we could have hoped for!! The Norwegians have incredible talents and creativity so the reception was full of skits, performances and lots of singing! Favourite memories include, my husband singing Jason Marz ‘i won’t give up’ to me after our vows, my Uncle performing as Elvis and singing ‘the wonder of you’ for our first dance. Eating tacos for dinner! The magical changing light in the greenhouse as the sun was setting, and then falling asleep in our glamping tents to our guests sitting around the campfire singing songs.

Tips for other couples: Leave room for things to be different from what you had originally planned. Try to be as creative as possible with recycling things for your wedding, you save a lot of money that way! and invest in a good photographer! It’s worth it!

Photographer Credit: Our photographer Damien Milan was outstanding!!! He stayed with us and our guests the night before the wedding and he fit in so well it was as though he was a guest himself! He was so fun to have around and he was relaxed and took so much care in the way he documented the whole day, and his results blew us away!! we laughed and cried as we looked through his photos. The way he captured the laughter from our guests you could almost hear it just by looking at the photo!
