Norwegian Couple Got Married In First Traditional Viking Wedding For Almost 1000 Years


Norwegian Couple Got Married In First Traditional Viking Wedding For Almost 1000 Years

Amazing wedding ever!

Each one of us has plans as well as the way in which our wedding should be organized. Ranging from a wedding celebration on the moon, under the ocean, in the garden, and even in the hall, the event is indeed a special one.

Having theirs in a rare style, a particular couple from  Norway agreed to take their wedding to the next level by revitalizing the Viking culture.

Yes, the first traditional Viking wedding of about 1,000 years was held by a beautiful Norwegian lake. The couple, Rune and Elisabeth Dalseth, decided to ditch the conventional Christian way and opted for a ceremony inspired by weddings that took place 1,000 years ago.

In a bid to hold their dream wedding, the pair planned a lot of things, including two longboats, finding a pagan priest, and blood offerings. They equally spilled the blood of an innocent animal – pig, which was later enjoyed as part of the feast. While the wedding welcomed a peaceful atmosphere, let’s tell you how they met.

Elisabeth Dalseth, a 27-Year-old, was a beautician

Elisabeth and Rune met in May 2016 at a bar, fell in love, and became a full-time home mother to her eight-month-old son. Never was she a Viking enthusiast. Later on, Rune introduced Elisabeth to a whole new world and slowly started embracing the Viking culture.
