Persian / Afghan Wedding at Folkets Hus Lillestrøm, Norway

Updated: Jan 12

Persian and South Asian weddings are a whole different wedding breed. Energy-wise they remind me of Latvian weddings (that's where I am originally from) with lots of dancing, no speeches, and just constant entertainment. They usually require me to stay longer, but also have lots of traditions and rituals to cover.

Let me introduce you to Vida&Hamid. They were best friends that became sweethearts. He asked for her head in marriage at her birthday in front of the whole family. As she words it - it was unexpected but so sweet.

From the dress to the venue - this couple has put in a lot of thought and a lot more manpower. Here are the wedding vendors that worked hard to make it special.
