I know Solveig through her work as the curator at Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseumand so I was super happy to be asked to take photos at hers and Erik’s wedding this weekend. She is always extremely complimentary of the work I do for her museum, so the pressure was on for me to deliver some photos worthy of their beautiful celebration!

Erik and Solveig are really cheerful, laid back couple, with two lively daughters. They invited me in to do photos of their ceremony in the quaint little chapel, hidden away within Thomas Angells House, beside Nidarosdomen cathedral, followed by photos at their dinner and party. They said they did not want a portrait session as they were not into doing ‘staged photos’. I understand this perspective as I would be of the same mindset (the reason I am a photographer is in no small part the result of not wanting to stand the other side of the lens!), but it presents a challenge for the photographer, who knows ultimately they will want and need some shots of them as a couple.

So, my solution was to plan a walk between the ceremony and the party venue, which gave us a few minutes’ of pause in order to catch some shots of the together, along with their besties Jens and Stine. Hopefully these moments I caught do their relationship justice – it was a really beautiful September day to boot. Is September the new summer wedding?!

And just a quick final note to compliment them on the choice of venue – Frimurerlogen is an historic and dramatic location. I loved the way they had set up the tables and the old seating around the balcony just screams history: I even had the chance to take a couple of photos of the bride and her sisters up there later in the night.Looking forward to showing you the rest of the photos Solveig, here are a few for your personal gallery in the meantime :p
