August 25, 2001, Oslo Cathedral, Norway

The Dress: The Crown Princess’s bridal gown was the result of a collaboration between the bride, designer Ove Harder Finseth and seamstress Anna Bratland. The gown was of thick silk crêpe and soft silk tulle, custom-dyed ecru. The skirt was flared with a two-metre-long train, inspired by the gowns of Queen Maud.
The Tiara: The bride’s tiara was a gift from her new in-laws, King Harald V and Queen Sonja. Made in 1910, the diamonds in the tiara form 23 floral rosettes set in platinum and yellow gold.
 The Bouquet:The idea for the bridal bouquet was developed in close cooperation between the bride and Aina Nyberget Kleppe, the general manager of the florist Passiflora A/S in Oslo. The bouquet was made up of rosary vine (Ceropegia woodii), Wanda orchids (a Phalaenopsis orchid), hydrangeas, roses in pink and mauve tones, bear grass, beads and metal threads.
