Elope to Norway | Your Lofoten Islands Mini-Elopement
Wanting to elope to Norway? How about our Lofoten Island Mini-Elopement?
Far up north, above the polar circle, the sun never sets in the summer months. It is magical to watch the sun slightly touch the horizon in the middle of the night and then rise again. This nature spectacle results in nightlong „sunset light“ and is something you need to experience with your own eyes. Imagine starting a hike in the evening, while the first clouds in the sky get slightly purple and arrive at the top of the mountain in the golden sunset light. Read your vows surrounded by mountaintops and ocean views while the sun sets and rises again at the same time – in the middle of the night.
The Lofoten Islands are one of the most magical places we have ever visited, and we truly think it is one of the most special places to elope in Norway. From impressive mountains to the bright blue fjords with white sand beaches and fields full of wildflowers, we are sure you will fall in love with the beauty of the landscapes on the Lofoten Islands – great for a Mini-Elopement in the north of Norway.
The only thing to keep in mind is the unpredictable weather up north. This is why we always plan a backup day if you elope to Norway, and more specifically for Lofoten Islands Elopements.

Meet your Norway Elopement Photographers
Hi, we are Victoria & Fabian,
We live part of the year in the Alps and cannot count how many sunsets we have watched from the summit of a mountain. We made most of our favorite memories while exploring, hiking, skiing, and having a great time outdoors. In the last years, we built a life that focuses on experiences in beautiful places. We love to go on road trips to Norway and are always looking for the next adventure and new places to explore, always keeping an eye out for new elopement locations. We believe that our dreams are here to chase them and do everything to make them a reality.
In 2020 we drove all the way up to Nordkapp with our camper van. As we saw the Lofoten Islands, we were fascinated by this place. We had been to many different places before, but the Lofoten is the most beautiful place on earth for us. Now we spend the summer of every year in this magical place. We created this Lofoten Islands Mini-Elopement Package for couples that want to have a vow renewal or elope to Norway.
Photography allows us to share our enthusiasm for nature and beautiful landscapes with you and to encourage more couples to ditch the traditions and create a wedding day they are really stoked about
We all have heard the sentence that your wedding day is the most beautiful day of your life. We always thought that this is just another quote that makes the expectations for weddings even more stressful and unreachable. But after we photographed our first adventure elopement, we think that your wedding day can really be one of the best days and an incredible experience to remember for the rest of your life. Our own elopement confirmed this belief. Creating a day that was all about our love for each other and the great outdoors was the best way to start this new chapter of our life.
You will get more than stunning photos if you book us as your wedding or elopement photographers in Norway. We will do everything to help you create a meaningful experience and your personal dream wedding day on your Lofoten Islands Mini-Elopement.
