Posts Tagged 'Salme'


I got married in June this year and it became (unintentionally) a DIY Wedding for some of the elements. One of my projects was designing and printing the Order of Service. Although time consuming it meant I could add some personal touches to the finished result – one of which was a Norwegian translation of the key aspects of the ceremony.

However I quickly discovered that not all British traditions have an equivalent translation in Norwegian. I wanted this feature in the Order of Service to be a surprise for my family and so I could not lean on them for guidance and so I use this blog to share my findings and thank it’s contributors.

Firstly, thank you to my Norwegian tutor Kari at Edinburgh University and my Uncle for all the proof-reading. Secondly, and most importantly, thank you to Visit Oslo and the Church of Norway for helping me with the translations.

I hope the translations are useful and save time for future brides (and grooms) 🙂
