Modern classic DIY wedding in Oslo
Guys, we are totally enamored with these photos Mattias Bergdal shared of Anne-Margrethe + Patrick and their Oslo, Norway wedding. Not only are they the cutest (don’t they have the best style?), the whole day looks so festive and romantic. Being a wedding photog herself, the bride had a clear vision for the day, and took on the planning and lots of DIY projects herself. Take a peek!
Anne-Margrethe’s pretty gown was made Danish couture designer David Andersen.
Groom’s style inspiration, check!
Anne-Margrethe says, In the church we had the most beautiful music, and we were so happy that we invested in a great choir to sing for us, New Voices Group. They made a beautiful acoustic version of I Want To Hold Your Hand when my dad and I walked together. During the ceremony they sang Is This Love by Bob Marley and the last song was Joyful Joyful.
The personal details all came together with the help of friends + fam, from the green and white wedding flowers to the cake, decor, and paper goods.
And how fun is this vintage VW Camper?! Cutest.
For the reception, they headed to their seaside venue Villa Malla, which is about 50 minutes from Oslo. They love the ocean and wanted a relaxed vibe, so this spot was the perfect fit.
On choosing a photographer… Mattias and I have worked together before, and he is a close friend of mine. I love his style and how he always makes his couples look so relaxed and natural in the pictures. We also like his fine art wedding photography style, where he uses the natural light with beautiful pastel tones.
A + P planned their wedding in six months with 78 guests. The bride’s advice: My best tip is to write down everything you buy and rent to keep track on your budget, and use your family and friends to help you (they will gladly help). You should also consider buying accessories and decor second hand, it will also save a lot from your budget! Use Pinterest to make different inspiration boards and be inspired. But don’t be afraid to do things your own way and just enjoy the planning—make it fun!
