The idea of rowing the bride, albeit very romantic, is not a new one, it comes from the days when there were no cars and the roads were terrible and Norway was an even less acessable country than it is now, especially on the west coast. Then the only way was to transport the bride and the guests was by boat. The theme feautures in on of Norways most famous paintings its called "Brudeferden i Hardanger" - "Wedding journey in Hardanger" it was painted in 1848 by Adolf Tiedman and Hans Gude, its is counted as the main work from the national romatic area in Norways art history. The bride and groom is in the back of the boat in the national costumes, the bride with with the wedding crown.

National Museum, Oslo

Lucky for this groom it was not very far, and the weather was nice, the romantic aspect disappears quite rappidly if it rains:p

Thank you Larzen and lucidu for sharing the pictures and anedoctes of this delightful wedding.

Everyone looks great, I honestly like to see Haakon (well I like to see him anyway) in his national costume.

And from what Larzen told Ingrid has already chosen a groom . She has indeed a strong personality framing it with that delicious smile :).

Regards,
mtbcm

Thanks for the pictures and the anecdote. Is Espen the brother that had to was sent to jail a few years ago or was that Per? Also did Mette-Marit's sister attend the wedding? thanks in advance.

I think it was Espen that had gotten in some sort of trouble for some kind of "domestic violence"w/ his g-friend...Hmm, I wonder if it was the same woman? And yes, was the sister there?

Yes it was Espen, not with his wife though. Mette-Marits sister did attend, I have identified here here Both Per and Kristin keeps very low profiles, well Per is on TV sometimes but they never ask him about his sister, its always restricted to military questions. Somehow the press is more interested in Espen, maybe not so strange considering his history. the press also likes to write that he is the sibling she is closest to, dont know if that is true. When 911 happened when they were on their hooneymoon in New York (and she still was very afraid of flying), Espen flew over to accompany them on the trip home to support her, they were pictured arriving together at Gardermoen. (see pic 2)

The bear is back!!!!!!

The wedding seems beautiful a very happy day! It is wonderful that Mette-Marit is still close to her family even with her busy schedule. Only one thing could have made this better..... Marius completing the family!!!!!!

It does not look like Marius was there, maybe he is on vacation with his father?

In the backround of pic 2 and 3 you can see Ingrid and Sverres nanny, blue dress, dark hair white ballerinas.

I didn't know Mette-Marit 's mother had remarried. Is this recent because nobody ever talk of her husdband before ?

Sorry, this might seem like a stupid question but I am wondering why is the nanny at the wedding also? Is it normal for nannies to come to such an event or are they themselves personally invited? Hope this isn't offf topic!
