Lapland Wedding - A Week Long Celebration
Here’s what Sofz told us about her Lapland wedding:
“We got married at The Snow Village in Lapland. When Purdie proposed, he suggested it as an idea. We had been to Lapland 10 years before to learn to snowboard and had visited The Snow Village. We both wanted to be able to spend time with our close friends and family so we made our wedding into a week-long holiday with our loved ones in a location that meant a lot to us. The whole thing was brilliantly planned by Rue at Sun & Snow Weddings.
The night before the wedding, we had a celebration with our family and friends in the Saaga Spa Hotel. We played games and then saw The Northern Lights together.
The next day, Purdie and best man John drove snowmobiles to The Snow Village. I arrived with my dad in a reindeer sleigh. We celebrated with sparklers and drinks in the ice bar after the wedding ceremony.
Then, we warmed up with a meal in the log restaurant before everyone went back to the hotel. We stayed in a wooden heated teepee with a hot tub after the wedding. The next day we rode the snowmobile back to the hotel.”
Colourful Wedding Wear at The Snow Village
We are loving this dip dye wedding dress! Sofz bought her wedding dress from Wed2b and sent it to Felicity Westmacott so she could work her colourful magic. The dress stands out so brilliantly against the snowy backdrop!
A purple and blue theme ran throughout the wedding party. The boys all chose their own blue suits. Sofz loves a surprise so she saw them for the first time at the wedding. The bridesmaids all wore a long purple dress, complementing the colours of Sofz’ dress.
