Southerners, Stephen and Kate met in High School and built their lives and families separately. Years later and many life changes, they found their way back to each other, reconnected, and blended their families. Naturally mountain lovers, they find peace among 360 views, traveling, hiking, discovering vineyards and local breweries. New Years Even 2018, brought a surprise engagement which happened in the mountains! And the question of where and how would they elope?!
After Kate and Stephen get engaged, they venture down the rabbit hole of planning an adventure elopement… So what is the first thing they Google? Elopement locations! To illustrate, since both have a deep love, family history with Scandinavia and Vikings it was almost immediately they decided on planning a wedding in Norway.
Okay sooo… How to plan a Norway elopement?
Quickly realizing spending hours researching was not the best use of their time, they inquired with our Your Adventure Wedding planning and photography team! Their process then looked like this…

Oh la la fall!! Such a cozy time of year to curl up with the one you love and adore! Maybe even the perfect time to have a Norway fjord wedding adventure…. Well it was ideal at least for Kate and Stephen! October 17th 2019 began as a misty moody morning along the Telemark Canal. Dalen Hotel (The Fairytale Hotel) sits along a stunning historical fjord setting the scene for a gorgeous Norwegian elopement.
As the sun rose behind the clouds, these two embarked on their Norway fjord elopement! Knowing that the weather in Norway can begin to become very unpredictable in October, these two wanted to have their ceremony inside a stave church. As a matter of fact, the Eidsborg Stave Church offers such an irreplaceable charm both inside and out!
Note: This is not a usual time year to hold a wedding inside this church as there is little to no natural light coming in and it is only candlelit. Norway Elopement Photographer Tip: Make sure your photographer is equipped with off camera flash.
Following their Norway stave church wedding ceremony, these two explored around historical grass covered houses! Pretty sure the mist and fog made the scene even more dreamy!!
Likely one of the countless reasons Kate and Stephen chose Norway to elope was for the amazing fjord views! Water features always make such a magnificent backdrop. Their fabulous elopement photographer was also skilled at flying a drone in the rain! Such dreamy Norway fjord wedding photos, truly!! Discovering this area was surely a highlight of the day for these two, especially in having the docks all to themselves.
Lunchtime during adventurous elopements in Norway come in different shapes and sizes. What felt right for Stephen and Kate was celebrating their newlywed status with high tea and a delicious bottle of Pol Roger champagne! Shortly after lunch these two also enjoy some rainy but oh-so dreamy elopement portraits.
As we eluded to earlier, these two thrive in nature. Transitioning to a Norway hiking elopement after lunch was exactly what they wanted. Hiking during your wedding day doesn’t have to be intensive, it can be about you two exploring and being 100% in the moment. For example, these two took time to discover a waterfall on the way and bask in the 180 degree views at the top! Nothing like having Norway fjord wedding photos!!
Believe it or not, our team often wishes for rain on wedding days especially during fall. You cannot get this amazing look without it!
Lastly, once they returned from their adventurous day out, they took time to rest and refresh. Waiting for them was a perfectly styles reception table for two (crafted by our adventure wedding planning team). They delighted in 2 courses for dinner, a beautiful cake and gorgeous nighttime photos in the rain!
