Having theirs in a rare style, a particular couple from Norway agreed to take their wedding to the next level by revitalizing the Viking culture.
Yes, the first traditional Viking wedding of about 1,000 years was held by a beautiful Norwegian lake. The couple, Rune and Elisabeth Dalseth, decided to ditch the conventional Christian way and opted for a ceremony inspired by weddings that took place 1,000 years ago.
Currently, there are over 6,000 revivalists interested in bringing back the Viking culture and tradition. Rune and Elisabeth’s wedding marked a historic day – the first time a Viking wedding was held in over 9 centuries.
In a bid to hold their dream wedding, the pair planned a lot of things, including two longboats, finding a pagan priest, and blood offerings. They equally spilled the blood of an animal – pig, which was later enjoyed as part of the feast. While the wedding welcomed a peaceful atmosphere, let’s tell you how they met.

Elisabeth and Rune met in May 2016 at a bar, fell in love, and became a full-time home mother to her eight-month-old son. Never was she a Viking enthusiast. Later on, Rune introduced Elisabeth to a whole new world and slowly started embracing the Viking culture.
