Wedding Gran Canaria
Are you planning to get married at Gran Canaria? Many people want to get married in the beautiful surroundings of palm trees and paradise surroundings. On Gran Canaria there are several possibilities for that. Here is several churches and chapels if you want a church wedding, but other options exist. You can get married/have a blessing ceremony under the open sky or in one of the cozy chapels on the island. In Puerto Mogan, there is even an awesome spa hotel has its own small chapel where you can have your wedding ceremony. Incredibly charming and romantic!
Church, chapel, hotel or beach?
At Gran Canaria you can marry or have a blessing ceremony at different places. But it may be wise to let a professional wedding planner help as it can be very complicated to figure out how to do it, since it is not allowed to get married everywhere. The canarian laws are also changing, beach wedding will very soon be legal on Gran Canaria. I do collaborate with a few very good wedding planners who have years of experience at Gran Canaria and who can help you. You can either get help to organize your entire wedding or just parts of it, depending of your budget and the needs you have. You should leave the make up and hair to professionals, and I have co-operation here with some really good once that know how to do wedding hair and make up and have lots of experience. Do you want the hairdresser to come to your home or to the hotel, yes, that can be arranged.
If you choose me as your wedding photographer, I help you to get in contact with other professionals who will help you doing your wedding exactly how you want. I am Norwegian, but I also speaks English and Spanish.
Quality is important
A very important part of your big day, perhaps one of the most important is of course your wedding photos. You will be photographed and get the most gorgeous photos taken of you ever, photos that will be your treasure for the rest of your life. When choosing your wedding photographer, remember that there is a huge difference in style and quality among photographers. There is more than price that count, be sure to choose your photographer that do the style you like. This is the day you will absolutely not compromise on the quality of your wedding photos.
Time and focus on the bride and groom
For me as a photographer, it is important that the photography also should be an enjoyable part of the day. I will never shoot more than one wedding on the same day.
The day you get married, it will be you who are in focus. I also comes properly dressed for the occasion, for me this is also a feast day. I love to feel the atmosphere and harmony of such a day, and I use the time we need and together with you, we plan very well how, where and when the photos will be taken. We communicate in advance, normally by mail and we meet before the big day when you have arrived at Gran Canaria. Please take a look at my testimonials from happy customers.
Prices and alternatives
If you want, I can follow you the entire day. But I can also do parts of the day, it´s your choice. I have different packages I offer.
All my packages includes:
- Planning/meeting before the wedding to look at the place/places for photography. We meet when you have arrived at Gran Canaria.
- Editing and preparing of the images/files so they can be print in best quality
- The final pictures in full resolution so that you can print yourself at no extra cost to me and with optional printer service. The photos are delivered in your own online gallery. I can also provide all your photos on a USB for a small fee.
I say nothing about how many images that is provided. It’s because I want to deliver all the photos are good, and I see no reason why you should not have anything that is photographed and successful. So you will get many photos included in the price.
I can also offer prints and album for an additional cost. Ask me how you can get 10% on beautiful, hand made albums.
You are welcome to contact me for an offer. Please use this form to send me a message.

Every year 100-150 Norwegian couples get married at Gran Canaria. And the only place Norwegians can get legally married on the island, is at Sjømannskirken in Arguineguin. I do photograph a lot of weddings there every year, and do not post so many here on my blog. So here is one I did this year, when Annette and Kai-Agnar got married. If you want to get married in this church, you should go to their web page and read about how you can get married in Sjømannskirken. It is very popular, so be vice to contact them as soon as you know your date...

This wedding is on of my favorites. Celine Michaela and Jon Anders choose to celebrate their wedding at Gran Canaria, where Celine have been living some years with her family. Celine and Jon Anders are Jehovah’s Witnesses , and therefor their marriage legally took place in Norway before they went to their paradise island. So, what they had in Gran Canaria, was a “blessing” ceremony held by a member of their congregation. The ceremony was held at Rossini in Arguineguin, in the wonderful pool area, just in front of the ocean,...
