Espen Hiby's wedding

Today Mette-Marits brither Espen (46) will get married to Renate Jonassen (32) in beautiful Hidra church at the Island of Hidra in the south of Norway. Haakon and Mette-Marit will attend (nothing written about the children) Yesterday they started the wedding with a gathering a boat called "Mary" outside the city of flekkefjord. About 100 guests are expected. The couple met at work, they both work in the Scandinavian Arilines, he is a pilot she is a stewardess. They were supposed to get married last year but postponed it because they got a son together at the time of the planned wedding. Renate is getting married for the first time, Espen for the 2 time, he has 3 children with his exwife (a couple of them were bridesmaids in Haakon and Mette-Marits wedding I think)
Sven O Hiby says he is too ill to attend which he is sad about since Espen calls him regularly

First small pic from the wedding, Mette-MArit chose a cream dress with a broad blue ribbon around her waist and carried Sverre Magnus into church, Haakon chose his national costume, it looked more than warm What did not look so hot is that he is growing his beird more:o Ingrid had a blue dress white a smal white jacket. They all looked very happy and the weather was beautiful.

No she has one sister, and two brothers, Espen is a pilot, Per works in the Military, a quite high posision I think because he is on TV sometimes answering military questions, he has also been aide de camp for King Harald, before his sister met Haakon though. Im not sure what her sister do really, the press never writes about her, she is married and has three girls and lives in Kristiansand I think. All her siblings are quite alot older than her.

What a wonderful summer wedding! This Hidra church looks absolutely wonderful, like a perfect getaway church for a summer wedding.

I love the bride's hair, it was very nicely done, having it free with some curls. But Crown Prince Haakon, what was he thinking wearing the national costume?! I'm surprised he didn't faint. I surely would've, at least if it's as warm as here in Sweden... But I must say that the wedding looked quite "causal", well not casual, but not terribly "dressed up" (for the guests, that is). Mette-Marit's dress, sans the ribbon, looks like a nice rather casual dress that anyone could wear during a warm summer, doing ordinary things.

Thank you so much Larzen for providing all the info and pictures, it is greatly appreciated!

Yes the wedding seemed quite casual and relaxed, tha groom wore white tie but none of the other guests did, it was a typical Norwegian wedding with all sorts of outfits mixed together. They are normal people and invite normal people in their wedding who dont have white ties and ballgowns hanging around, maybe that why Haakon chose his bunad so he did not have to decide on what to wear, business suit, tux or white tie. Anyway i think it suits him (although the woolen stockings cant have been much fun yesterday )

VG has a cute story from the wedding. When Espen sat and waited nervously for his bride Ingrid thought he looked a little lonely so she ran up and sat on the empty chair next to him where the bride is supposed to sit and sent the crowd her biggest smile. Mette-Marit tried to go and get her but she refused to move and she sent a happy triumphant smile to the crowd again when her mother gave up. Just before the bride arrived Haakon went and had to get her with power, she loudly protested from being taken from her place and insisted she wanted to sit there, but when the bride arrived she sat with her parents in the crowd. Mette-Marit read a passage from the bible. After the wedding Espen rowed his bride in a boat across the water to the guests who was waiting at the other side for the reception in a small restaurant by the sea

Still a little left on the church etiquette

Aw, how cute! Of course it can also be difficult to handle children at times like these, especially if it's a wedding or something and they aren't supposed to cream in protest when the bride is supposed to enter... But anyway, what a sweet anecdote! :)

Aaah... That sounds so wonderful. Sounds like a wonderful family-close wedding. I've never heard of rowing the bride like that, but what a nice thing to do for an island wedding! :)

Thank you very much for these pictures, Larzen! It is indeed a lovely summer wedding.
Haakon looks very handsome, as do Mette-Marit who is looking beautiful and glowing. She has a wonderful dress with nice colour, and lovely earings. Sverre is totally the mini-Ingrid.. he is very blonde and his face is very expressive & cute, he also bring his white stuffed-animal everywhere. Too bad Marius couldn't join the family as well.

well.. this is certainly a cute story, Larzen. Ingrid Alexandra is very funny, and i just got to laugh reading this story. That's very kind of Ingrid! She also wore a beautiful summery dress, and looking very adorable these days.

Thanks a lot for this interesting story.
It would even be better if we could see this event happening on a video clip if available.....:)

I am going to chime in and say that I really enjoyed this anecdote, too.

We never think much about the other non-royal aunts and uncles of the young princes and princesses. The media probably doesn't pay too much attention about how much time Marius, Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre Magnus are spending with their maternal aunts, uncles and siblings, and we are more likely to see pictures of Haakon and Mette-Marit's kids when they are visiting with Martha Louise and her daughters. It's nice to hear that Ingrid Alexandra is close to her maternal uncle, too.

What an utterly romantic gesture! I am swooning at the idea of being rowed anywhere(!) with your new husband after the service! :p Makes the idea of a lakeside wedding even more attractive!

That's an adorable story! Ingrid seems to have a mind of her own when it comes to choosing seats at church events, with this and watching Sverre's christening from her spot on the stairs!
