Lindesnes Lighthouse Wedding: Norway Elopement Location

November 30, 2017 | Travels & Hikes

One of my favorite stops on my month-long road trip through my home country this summer was Lindesnes lighthouse at the southernmost point of Norway! I visited the lighthouse on a windy afternoon, and I was immediately blown away (pun intended) by how perfect this place would be for an adventurous elopement or intimate wedding. Take a look at my photos below, and try to tell me that a Lindesnes Lighthouse wedding wouldn’t be the most dramatically beautiful wedding ever – I dare you 😉

Can you imagine getting ready in a lighthouse, and walking down the hundred year old stairs to where your closest friends and family are waiting in the small auditorium outside? Or exchanging vows with your partner on the windblown crags looking out over the Norwegian coast? Lindesnes Fyr (that’s lighthouse in Norwegian!) is truly a wedding photographers dream, and I am officially adding it to my bucketlist to photograph a Lindesnes Lighthouse wedding or elopement one day.

The best part of planning a Lindesnes Lighthouse wedding would be renting the lighthouse apartment and staying there for a night or two before and after the wedding to really experience the area. The apartment sleeps up to six people, and is available year round, but I would highly recommend visiting in summer. Even located at the southernmost tip of Norway, the sun rises around 4:30am and sets around 10:30pm in the summer months, so you can enjoy the long summer nights on the crags or in one of the small bays protected from the wind.

Lindesnes Lighthouse has over 350 years of history, and was the home to Norway’s first lighthouse that was first lit in 1656. The stormy weather and powerful currents caused many shipwrecks in the area, and Lindesnes is now a museum for Norway’s maritime history. The area is filled with old bunkers and tunnels from World War II, and I had such a blast exploring the different paths … even if walking through pitch black tunnels by myself with the wind howling outside felt like the beginning of a horror movie.

If you are planning a Lindesnes Lighthouse wedding or a different adventure elopement in Norway of your own, I would love for you to get in touch with me so we can chat about your wedding photography! As a native Norwegian speaker who lived there for 23 years, I know the country very well and would be happy to help you plan an epic wedding day for you 🙂
