When two extremely adventurous people meet while out on a daring expedition, only good things come from it. Consequences of such meetings usually include endless laughs, incredible moments in time, and smiles that make your cheeks hurt. And if you’re tremendously lucky, you walk away with a new forever friend. Fortunately, in the story of Danielle and Shea not only are all the above true, but they also found their soulmates in each other. These two met while hiking in Nepal. Seriously! …and they both just happened to be living in the same area of Australia! Mean to be, right?!
So naturally after they had more journeys exploring the world together, they were searching for astounding elopement locations and a way to elope that would be very different than the typical avenues. Danielle and Shea first reached out to us inquiring about an elopement in Iceland on Iceland Wedding Planner. Shortly after we met on Skype and seeing we own Your Adventure Wedding, they were hooked on the adventure wedding concept we provide. Torn between having a wedding in Iceland or Norway was tough but in the end, Norway won. They fell in love with the Dalen Fairytale Hotel option we created for their elopement in Norway.
Have you ever seen or been to the Dalen Fairytale Hotel? It’s one of the oldest, fanciest, charming, and most notable hotels in Norway. A place where Kings and Queens choose to stay at frequently. The first time I visited years ago and pulled up to the front of the hotel I immediately felt like I was walking into a storybook. As you’ll see from the Norway wedding photos below, it’s a very vivid and intoxicating place that sits along the historic Telemark Canal fjord.
There are too many beautiful images I want to share with you from their 10+ locations we ventured to throughout their adventure wedding in Norway, so you’ll be happy to know I’m splitting their fabulous day into 2 posts. This week we will feature all the awesomeness we created in and around the Dalen Hotel, their Stave Church Norway wedding ceremony and a another secret spot.
Next week, stay tuned for the bulk of Shea and Danielle’s Norway wedding adventure photos where we discover more secret waterfalls, a cave, and take an adventure in a riverboat down a beautiful historical canal! Inspired by this Norway Elopement at the Dalen Fairytale Hotel? We would love to hear from you if so! Maybe we can craft your very own Norway Elopement at the Dalen Fairytale Hotel!
