A Colourful + Rustic Summer Barn Wedding in Norway
We may be inching our way into the cooler temperatures and also the last weeks of summer, however nowadays we're doubling back for any June wedding in Norway, full of free-spirited joy and bright, freshly picked flowers within an idyllic, rustic setting. The couple celebrated their marriage on 8 June 2019, in the village of Tomter, Norway.
I love romantic, boho, and vintage styles. Kristine finds the short dress, produced from soft, silk georgette, having a relaxed, 1970s-inspired fit and beautifully trimmed, billowing sleeves.
"I have experienced many friends getting married, and I have experienced many types of weddings, and all sorts of kinds of prom dresses. First of all, both Martin and I agreed the marriage should be relaxed, so I wanted a relaxed dress, as well as for some reason I have always loved short dresses. So I started Googling 'Short wedding gown'."
"It was something concerning the simplicity, but the details around the arms. The shape and line of the gown, and also the idea that it might suit our wedding concept of something easy and fun!"
"As promised, the gown arrived, it had been stunning; the material was so delicate, and also the pattern I had only seen in pictures was even more beautiful than I could ever imagine. With some adjustments from a local seamstress, the gown sat and looked perfect on me!"
Kristine's Maid of Honour wore a deep blue dress of her very own choosing, and Kristine and Martin's daughter, Sonja, looked magical inside a satin, lace, and tulle dress, and pink studded shoes.
Kristine, her father, and the Maid of Honour made their method to the ceremony inside a fantastic bronze 1960 Rolls Royce, that they hired. Kristine and her father made their way on the aisle together, to Canon in D, by Pachelbel, which reminds Kristine of summer.
Martin looked fantastic in the smart casual outfit of a deep blue suit, that they paired having a white shirt and white sneakers. Son Jacob matched his father, with blue trousers along with a white shirt and their pair of cool, white sneakers.
"One of my favorite moments before the marriage was picking flowers with my mother around the Friday, your day before. We took quite a while and drove around the countryside, climbing around all types of places to get all of the colors and different flowers representing June. We were so proud! We filled buckets with all of the flowers, plus they were placed close to the entrance from the ceremony and also the barn. It blended so well using the romantic feeling from the venue."
"To say 'I do' towards the man of my entire life, my closest friend, the daddy of my children, and also the handsome stud waiting in front of me was my favorite part of your day – as well as his speech! And all of the other speeches! All the words, the cheers, and also the love. It's pretty overwhelming to sit down there and receive it."
"But also – our children! I knew they'd be the ones to create me cry, so when I saw them on my small arrival, I was amazed. They were so sweet, so lovely, and thus funny. My son came straight towards me when I arrived, and said, 'Mom! I'm wearing a belt! And it's so cool, and later dad says I can possess a waffle!'. My daughter just continued dancing around in her tulle skirt, so pleased with her dress. Nothing could happen to be done differently – your day was perfect!"
Words of Wedded Wisdom
"It's a cliché, but don't forget it's your entire day and nobody else's. Do it how you want it, and don't be worried about what others think and wish. Nothing has to become any other way than how you want it."
"One minor suggestion we did which was perfect: We were built with a speech session before dinner. All speeches were held a while after the ceremony and before dinner. Then also getting the DJ playing during dinner, the dinner was relaxed, people mingled across tables, they talked loudly, they took a rest whenever they wanted, they emerged to us and hugged us and also the whole setting was relaxed and fun. I recommend it!"
