Planning a wedding abroad

planning a wedding can in every way become very all-consuming, and there is probably no less to think about if you choose to tie the knot in another country. So it might be good to seek some good advice from someone who has been through it all. I was so lucky to vitness the love between Odd Rune and Merethe during theirbeautiful Tuscany wedding, and to capture their magical wedding day, which they celebrated with family and friends in scenic surroundings, surrounded by ancient olive trees. A while back I asked Merethe if she could be so kind as to share some tips and advice on how to have the best possible experience organizing a wedding abroad.


Merethe's tips for those of you who dream of weddings abroad


  1. Take the time to find a good wedding planner. Do Research!

  2. If you want to get married at a vineyard, choose the ceremony as late as possible in the day, so that guests can enjoy the pool party during the day.

  3. If several children are at the wedding, serve a separate children's dinner for the children before dinner for the adults. While the children eat, the adults can enjoy an aperitif and prosecco!

  4. Invite the guests for a whole weekend so that they get to know each other better.

  5. Rather spend money on string lights and lights in general that create a nice, worm atmosphere, rather than lots of flowers. Italy is beautiful in itself


Together with wedding planner Marianne Iversen, founder of My taste of Tuscany wedding, they organized an unforgettable experience, not only for themselves, but also for all the guests they shared their lovely day with.
