Ok, so, I spend a lot of time looking at Lord of the Rings weddings don’t ya know. I came upon this website that had a beautiful LOTR wedding, but it was in some crazy umlaut language (Norwegian actually) filled with o’s with lines going through them and all the vowels has little circles over them. Happily, the author translated some of the wedding’s description into English, and Google Translator will do the rest for us, which is actually quite comical.
Regardless of the language, the wedding is absolutely beautiful! I can’t discover the bride and groom’s name, so I’m calling this the Brudeparet Wedding, which, as far as I can tell, means “bride and groom” in Norwegian. Brudenparet!
The author, a friend of the couple’s, had this to say:
This summer some of my best friends got married, in a true Lord of the Rings style! We’ve known each other for quite many years out of common interests for Tolkien, and green lifestyle. So it was a joy to travel all the way down the west coast to be with them this enchanting day. The location was absolutely gorgeous, it was almost like an island of old style log buildings, grass roofs, pathways and trees.
The handfasting found place outdoors, and all dressed up in glorious garb accompanied by wonderful music, it was just beautiful.
The guests were supposed to dress in costumes too, and after the ceremony we went to do some archery and explore the area before eating dinner.
The meals were really great, consisting of medieval dishes, with names such as Aragorns kingly athelas salad, Thranduils premium deer steak, Beorns honeycoated root vegetables, Samwise’s baked herb potatoes and so on!
I love this! I want to have Aragorn’s kingly athelas salad! Love.
Afterwards we danced medieval dances and had fun, before seeing the wedding cake and eating berries for dessert.
That cake is awesome.
When dusk arrived we lit a huge fire by the lake, where we sat drinking tea, telling stories and speaking until mist danced over the water and dawn arrived. Then the few of us the most used to cloaks and bonfires finally went to get some sleep, agreeing that it had been one of the most wonderful days in our life!
And there you have it, a simple yet beautiful wedding filled with awesome Lord of the Ringness. It’s even cooler in my book because it’s in Norway (I assume) and all foggy and cool looking.
When planning your wedding, regardless of the theme, always try to remember it’s about having fun, being with the people you love, and making it your special day in whatever way that means. Thanks for reading guys!
