When Håvard and Stine invited me over to their home In the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway to photograph their wedding, to say I jumped at the chance would be an understatement!

You see, not many folk have heard of the Lofoten Islands particularly here in the UK, and I was one of them until that day Håvard and Stine made contact.  Suffice to say it truly is an incredible unspoilt gem.

Norway is one of my favourite countries in the world, not only due to the stunning scenery but also the wonderful and friendly people who live there.  To get to photograph a wedding in Norway is one thing, but to go further off the beaten track up above the Arctic Circle puts the cherry on the cake.

The images do the talking for somewhere like Lofoten.  I had a great day with these two lovely people, who braved four seasons in the space of an hour (!) and embraced every moment of it.  And so, as it happens, did I.
