Lapland in winter is a natural choice for your white wedding in a fairytale landscape with snow covered trees and picturesque scenery whilst wearing your very special dress, sharing promises and pledges, being in love and saying ‘I do’ in a chapel carved from ice. This then followed by a perfect honeymoon snuggled up by a crackling log fire.
Lapland has the perfect mix for brides, grooms and their family and friends. The cosmopolitan capital Rovaniemi offers great nightlife and all set in the country where resides it’s most famous resident Santa Claus. While you are there, visit Yllas and Levi and enjoy a taste for old-world traditional Lapland.
Each wedding is unique for every couple. Please contact us for more details and information, along with pricing and let Claridon Travel make your wedding day extra special.
Below are some examples of the types of weddings Lapland can offer:
Love is in the air at the Santamus log cabin. Set in the middle of a snow-covered pine forest, this is an ideal setting to take your wedding vows in front of your family and close friends. Afterwards, you will be serenaded by the romantic sounds of the Finnish Kantele or lap harp.
Snow Princess Venue
For the more traditional who also like something a little different, make your life-long pledge in a traditional Lappish Kota or tepee. Exchange vows and wedding rings in this rustic hut, romantically decorated with torches, candles and an enticing warm toasty fireplace.
Snowy Altar Venue
If the idea of a truly unique, magical experience appeals, then this provides an opportunity to get married in an igloo, under a roof with sparkling fairy-lights and set in front of an ice altar. Family and friends will be comfy as they witness your exchange of wedding vows whilst sitting on ice chairs covered with reindeer pelts. Afterwards enjoy a glass of sparkling wine with a slice of your wedding cake.
Yllas Romantic Wedding
For added romance become Mr and Mrs in a Lappish Shaman’s hut in the heart of a snow-covered forest. Enjoy the experience of a short reindeer sleigh ride and start your married life together in a candle-lit room in front of a log fire, toasting your new beginning with a glass of sparkling wine.
Crazy Reindeer Wedding
For traditionalists, walk up the aisle of a quaint chapel with its altar and stained glass window lit by twinkling lanterns and candles, set in the charming village of Köngas.
Snow Village Wedding
Perfect for the modern day Romeo and Juliet. Each year this village consisting of hotel, restaurant, bar and chapel is built entirely from snow and ice. Choose between an ice chapel or wooden chapel to say ‘I do’. There is a husky, reindeer or snowmobile ride to the Snow Village and the choice of an ice or log fire restaurant for your reception.
Winter Wonderland Wedding
At your Winter Wonderland Wedding you will be driven to the shores of the Frozen Wilderness Lake in a reindeer sleigh. Exchange vows in a fairy-lit ice gazebo overlooking the lake.
