After the intimate ceremony in the garden of the cosy Hotel Stelor we decided to explore the hidden gems that Gotland has plenty of. And it sure didn’t disappoint. Cheesy as it may sound, these two left us with some of the best memories ever. We felt thankful to a place like this – for bringing us together with these high school sweethearts from Singapore.
