Expect a different kind of paradise, where you get to experience adventure and romance alike. Lapland is a real-life Winter wonderland, and most importantly it’s the home of Father Christmas.

Without doubt, entertainment is an essential part of any wedding. When in Lapland, consider serenading your guests with traditional Sami music. Melodies so mystical and pure they are sure to add a truly rememberable and special touch to your ceremony.


There’s probably nothing better than having nature’s most spectacular light show, a celestial firework, at your wedding. In Finland, the aurora borealis, also referred to as polar lights or northern lights, is visible on roughly 150 – 200 nights a year. Legend has it that a Firefox (Revontulet – the Finnish word for the Northern Lights – translates as “fox fires”) runs along the fells with the fox’s flaming tail whipping crystals of snow into the sky and the fur scratching the trees, setting the skies on fire. It’s all about myths, legends and luck but with darker and less cloudy skies. March is generally a great time to go “northern lights spotting”. Just picture having your first dance in the moonlight accompanied by the enchanting northern lights. Amazing, right?
