The Norwegian Church London and Prince Albert Camden wedding photography – Ingun and Ronnie
Every now and again I find myself photographing a wedding where I have almost zero idea what’s being said all day! Ingun and Ronnie are Norwegian and live in Norway, but wanted a destination wedding. They had a London wedding at the Norwegian Church, followed by knees up at The Prince Albert pub.
Friends and family came from Norway to be a part of their day. The service was in Norwegian and of course so were all of the conversations and speeches.
It’s an interesting test as a photographer as it means you have to be on high alert to read body language and the natural rhythm of the events that you’re photographing.
Norwegian wedding traditions
I absolutely love getting to experience weddings outside of my own culture. At Norwegian weddings the bride and groom have to jump up on their chairs and kiss every time guests clink their glasses. If guests stamp their feet they have to kiss under the table. It was good fun seeing Ingun and Ronnie jumping up and down to kiss on demand!
A London pub wedding venue and a classic routetmaster bus
The Prince Albert is one of my favourite pub wedding venues in London. It does great food, it’s in a fab location next to the canal and Camden Town The decor is contemporary but it still feels like a classic London pub.
Ingun and Ronnie transported their guests from the church via a surprise Routetmaster Bus. It was a lovely surprise for a whole load of people visiting London. One of my other favourite things about the day were the drinks reception waffles! I’m told they’re a very classically Norwegian thing and guests absolutely loved them.
