OK, so WE are inland people. And seeing the sea is a magical, even mystical, experience for us. It kinda lures us towards itself. Like Sirens we hear the crash of waves and can’t help but go towards it. I just could go on and on about the sea… Rifdi and Aliah are from Singapore. But somehow with the help of Instagram and the stars being aligned just right, they found our dynamic duo and then some Skype calls later […]
For a good month now, we have a new face to the website. With that, we also changed our brand name to Sokk & Butlers. Why, you ask? Well, I agree with anyone who says the imagery and artistry lies behind a person, not a brand name. I’d like to think we offer more than the images. Couples who turn to us often say afterwards – “we loved the whole experience!”. This is the best we can hope for. It’s an […]
If I had to name the friendliest person from my usual daily corporate IT office environment, Sille is probably the one. If anyone manages to mess up, she’s like “It’s gonna be OK!”. That kind of we’re-here-to-celebrate-your-love attitude is what we felt that evening. But make no mistake, they didn’t leave anything to chance 😉 I mean Henri was all over the place alongside the decorator with the cordless drill like no one’s business. Thank you guys for having us […]

These guys just made the world smile around them. Every second of their wedding – right up to their getaway on a tandem bike, straight off to the honeymoon. Wild and in love. No more words.
We spent quite some time getting to Kökar, as mentioned in the previous post, and saw the Åland archipelago and its magnificence from a number of angles and Kökar stood out. It is one big pile of naked gray rock – no beach, bits of forest – but a lot of emotions. First, the winds that welcome you by blowing from different angles. Then the vistas – one seascape following another, not to mention the tiny little red boathouses that […]
I’m happy to say we NEARLY got lost on the twisting roads of Nuuksio, before we met Carly & Jussi. Nearly. They met at the London 2012 Olympics. Apparently there was an orchestra to mark the occasion – one member from each of the countries participating at the Games. Carly plays the French horn and Jussi is a percussionist. It’s obvious that Nuuksio is a place to go if rugged forest-filled terrain, lakes and pathways are what you are in […]
