Autumn is Nina + John’s favorite season, so an autumn wedding in the mountains was their perfect dream day. Love the colors from this wedding and really makes me want to visit Norway! Since they had guests coming to Norway from all over the world (they lived in Scotland at the time they were planning their wedding, but now call Norway home), they wanted a venue that could accommodate all of their guests for the entire weekend. Harahorn was the perfect place for their wedding weekend allowing the couple lots of time to hang out with their guests, relax and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. Love the overall relaxed vibe of their wedding, the groom + groomsmen in kilts, Nina’s gorgeous Jenny Packham dress, and the beautiful autumn colors + textures. Congrats to Nina + John and thanks so much to 2 Brides for the gorgeous photos!
The most memorable moment for me was the wedding ceremony. We know the woman who married us, and it made the ceremony incredibly personal and heartfelt. Our friends did readings and performed songs which we had picked, which meant that important people in our life could be a part of the ceremony. We got married in a tiny, wooden chapel where everyone was standing around us, and this created a very intimate and romantic space.

Invest time and money in finding the right wedding photographers. Find photographers which understand the style and vibe of your wedding; their work will create your finest memories. A great tip is to have an engagement session with your photographers. You get to know each other, you can use the photos in your invitations/ paper goods, and you get to practice your poses!
