The couple married at St Wulstan’s Church, Little Malvern, and the ceremony was followed by a reception at Wellington Health Memorial Village Hall.

There were 25 Norwegian guests, who all wore traditional national costume for the occasion.

The couple are now returning to Edinburgh where they live and work, having originally met while at university there.
