30 Amazing Photos Show Norwegian Weddings From the Early 20th Century

Sogn og Fjordane was a county in western Norway, when it was merged to become part of Vestland county. Bordering previous counties Møre og Romsdal, Oppland, Buskerud, and Hordaland, the county administration was in the village of Hermansverk in Leikanger municipality. The largest town in the county was Førde.

Although Sogn og Fjordane has some industry, predominantly hydroelectricity and aluminium, it is predominantly an agricultural area. Sogn og Fjordane is also home to the Urnes Stave Church and the Nærøyfjord, which are both listed by UNESCO as world heritage sites.

The Western Norway University of Applied Sciences has campuses in Sogndal and Førde.

Here below is a set of amazing photos from Fylkesarkivet i Vestland that shows weddings in Sogn og Fjordane in the 1900s and 1910s.
