Im sorry but what happened to the old thread for this wedding, it contained lots of pcitures and also information on the decorations, clothes, food and speeches etc, it also contained links to several videos:neutral:
The thread was damaged, and some material was unfortunately lost.
Thanks to Mandy's work many of the images have been reposted.
It's sad that all the pictures and videos are lost ...
Anyway, thanks for all the pictures Mandy!
This was a true fairy-tale wedding! A beautiful bride, a happy couple, many Royal tears of joy. :)
Yes, thank you for reposting the pictures!!

Princess Martha Louise is my favorite Royal bride ever!!!:flowers:

did crown Prince Fredrick denmark go to the wedding ??
i tihink she have the beautifullest wedding dress of the royals
Hasn't Märtha's wedding been called a Kitsch-wedding?
I think some people were complaining about the strange colour choice (pink and mint, I think) and I just read an old article where they talk about the little "Kitsch-details" like ML's Ari-Brooche.:rolleyes:

Personally I loved this wedding! It was truly emotional and ML looked stunning! I love her dress!

Special weddingpage with several pictures of the pre-wedding events and the wedding:

Huge Picture of Märtha and Ari on the balcony:
It was clearly an emotional ceremony. I love weddings where people feel something and cry.
Aww her outfit was lovely I thought. I wish Marius was there:wub:
Generally I don't like how Princess Martha Louise is dressed (these last times, she is improving! :D ) but I must said she wore the most beatiful wedding dres I've ever seen. It's romantic...

Great artwork Her Majesty:)

If they don't work Just right click on them and save as.
Surely one of my favourite Wedding-songs.
Toccata. So dramatic and emotional!:heart:

It was also played during Mary's and Frederik's wedding, wasn't it?
All in all: They chose wonderful music for theior wedding!

Did you see how long it took them to walk out of the church?
More then 4 minutes! :D

^^ I didn't realize that Josephine! Martha and Ari and Joachim and Marie will have the same anneversay (only 4 years apart). this MUST be some sort of special signifacance day, right?
I fell in love with Grieg's "To Spring" (Varen) the way it was performed at the wedding. Unfortunately, the video that is linked above has expired. Does anybody have a clip of the wedding that I could save?

here is a picture i have from the Bride an Groom
