Lapland Wedding – Rovaniemi

Earlier this month I flew out to Rovaniemi, north Finland other wise known as ‘Lapland’ the home of Santa Claus. Why did i fly out here, to photograph my most adventurous wedding yet! I knew that this was going to be a challenging wedding to photograph, sub zero temperatures and dark by 14:00 were to name a few! The journey out was a long one but I and my equipment all made it safely. The next day though I really got to see the what Rovaniemi had to offer and the landscape absolutely bowled me over. It’s not too often you get a white christmas in the UK or even a decent amount of snow any other time of the winter to be honest but you had it. A lot of it! It was gorgeous! After photographing the bridal prep were shuttled on a mini bus to the location of the wedding. We were dropped off at a one of those comfortable wooden lodge’s with the roaring fireplace in the woods like you’ve always dreamed of visiting. From there we had to take a 15minute walk across a bridge and through what I can only describe as ‘Narnia’ to a small hut out in the woods. This is where the ceremony was held. The thick fresh white powdered snow blanketed everything and reflected light from every angle and the sky was like from another world! The day was so magical! Theres nothing like enjoying a hot chocolate from a wooden bowl in minus 20 degree temperatures! There were plenty of surprises as well from a visit from Santa Claus to, yes, the Northan Lights even made an appearance! I can not show you any pictures from the wedding itself just yet due to special circumstances but I can show you some of the setting. The below photograph I took during sunrise at the very location the bride and groom got married!
