One of my favourite moments during Cecilie & Espen’s wedding in Norway happened after a gale force wind storm tore through the reception. Fortunately, most of the reception had been set up in the old traditional Norwegian barn, laughter and love silenced the howling wind. We were safe inside the sturdy storm resistant barn as the wind flung the outside marquees onto nearby cars.
There’s a special light after a storm passes and when I began seeing the soft glowing light peaking through the gaps in the barn I asked the bride and groom to come with me outside and play in the beautiful light. They were all to happy knowing what I was talking about. We felt so alive in the storms ambience creating moving images after the destructive force had passed.
