Supporting their fellow Scandinavian royals were a host of special guests from Norway and Denmark. Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway attended the nuptials, as did Haakon's elder sister Princess Märtha Louise and her husband Ari Behn – although they were not part of the group photograph.
