We are getting married

Hedda & Sean

25. juni 2022 Gamle Aker Kirke

Our wedding

The Ceremony will take place at Gamle Aker Kirke in the centre of Oslo at 1pm.

The Reception will take place at Sporten, Holmenkollveien 204, 0784 Oslo, following the ceremony. Please let us know if you prefer a vegetarian meal or if you have any allergies.

For our evening guests, please join us at our Evening Reception at 7pm. We would also love to see you at the Ceremony.

Although we love your children, we regretfully cannot accommodate them at the church or the reception venue.

 

Getting to the ceremony:

The address of the church is: Akersbakken 26, 0172 Oslo.

The walk from the Parliament (Stortinget) is about 20 mins. Oslo also have electronic scooters available.

In addition to taxi/uber, you can also access the church via bus. The nearest bus stop is Stensbeggata, about 4 mins walk from the church.

 

Getting to the reception:

We have booked a bus to transport you from the church to the reception venue.

 

For our guests joining us for the Evening Reception:

If you decide to join us for the Ceremony you are also welcome to join the bus from the church. Before continuing to the reception venue, the bus will make a stop at Majorstua  where there are several restaurants, pubs and shops. From Majorstua you can get the underground (T-bane) no 1 directly to Frognerseteren (the last stop) for the Evening Reception. From there it is just a few mins walk (350 m) to the venue.

If you would like to have some dinner we can recommend the following restaurants:

If you prefer to spend the time before the Evening Reception in the centre of Oslo, the easiest way to get to the venue (other than taxi/uber) is by tram and underground. From Oslo centre you can get the 11 tram or most underground lines to Majorstua, and from there you can get the underground (T-bane) no 1 to Frognerseteren.

 

Dress code:

We have had some questions about the dress code.

We would love to see the gentlement in suits. And for all the lovely ladies, if you want to wear a summer dress, we wouldn’t mind a bit! However, the most important thing for us is that you enjoy the day, and wear what makes you feel comfortable.

Gifts

The biggest gift to us is for you to be at our wedding to celebrate with us.

However, if you wish to buy us a gift, we do have a list with Kitchn.

Hotels and transportation

Arriving in Oslo:


For those of you joining us from abroad, we recommend flying to Oslo Gardermoen.

Flytoget Airport Express Train

The Flytoget Airport Express Train departs from the airport every 10 or 20 minutes. The train stops at Oslo S (Oslo Central Station) and the Oslo National Theatre (both in the centre of Oslo). Duration is 19–22 minutes. This is the quickest and easiest alternative, whilst the regional trains and bus are cheaper alternatives.

Vy (Norwegian State Railways)

All Vy Regional trains operating Skien-Oslo-Lillehammer-Trondheim go via Oslo Airport Gardermoen. For more information and timetables visit Vy website

Flybussen

The airport bus runs several routes between Oslo city centre and Oslo Airport Gardermoen.

 

Hotels


There are several hotels to choose between in Oslo, below are just a few of our recommendations:

We will stay at Hotel Continental, close to the Palace.

Another good alternative (which is more reasonably priced) is Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel. This is fairly close to Hotel Continental.

A cheaper option is Citybox Oslo. We have no personal experience with this hotel, but it is a reasonably new hotel and we have heard good things about it. This hotel is also in the centre of Oslo, close to Karl Johan (the main street).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

Travelling around Oslo


There are several options for travelling around Oslo, including tram, tube and bus. We recommend that you download the ticket app, where you can easily purchase tickets. You can either purchase a full day ticket, or single tickets which lasts for one hour. The same ticket can be used on all trams, tubes and busses within Oslo. As long as you are just travelling within Oslo, you only need to buy a ticket for zone 1.

The ticket app is available here.

You can also use Uber or Oslo Taxi (tel 02323)

If you want to see more of Norway

What to see in Oslo

There are lots of nice parks, beaches, cafes, shops, restaurants and bars in Oslo. However, if you want to do some sightseeing we can recommend the following:

  • Holmenkollen Ski Jump (skiing museum and lift to the top with a view over Oslo)

  • Vigelandsparken

  • The Bygdøy museums (Fram museum and Kon Tiki museum + Viking museum)

  • Norsk Folkemuseum (Norwegian history museum with old Norwegian buildings)

  • Fjord cruise from Aker Brygge

  • Oslo city beach by the opera building

  • Edward Munch gallery


You can also get the boat from Aker Brygge or bus from Oslo bus terminal out to Drøbak where Hedda is from. This is a lovely town in the summer with beaches and restaurants, and you can also access Oscars Borg (an island fortress) by boat from Drøbak.

 

Suggestions for trips around Norway

There are many beautiful hikes in Norway. Personally we love Besseggen, Knutshø and Galdhøpiggen (4-5 hours drive from Oslo), as well as Trolltunga and Preikestolen (8 hours drive from Oslo). If you do not want to rent a car in Oslo, you can access several of the hikes by bus from Oslo Bussterminal.

We also recommend flying or getting the train to Bergen or Trondheim if you want to see more of Norway.

Please do not hesitate to ask us if you want help planning your trip in Norway.
