Mikaela & Patrik – Wedding on Kökar, Åland – vol. 1

weddings

[intro]If you don’t have a sailboat or a friend that owns one, it takes the better part of 2 days to get to Kökar from Estonia. It’s a 2,5h ferry ride away from the Finnish mainland, same from the main islands of Åland.[/intro]
But it was totally worth it. If you are looking for cliff-lined vistas and hidden beaches, this is the place.

This is part 1 of the story of Mikaela & Patrik. The island is where Patrik spent his childhood. So it was a day with people close to them, in a place close to them.

The getting-ready was not what you would see in a busy hotel room. More like 2 close-by family homes filled with chit-chat, laughter and a touch of nervousness where Patrik got ready 😉

Sille & Arvo – wedding at Viljandi Fort Ruins & Vanaõue
How come it (almost) always rains during your wedding morning and clears up by noon? This is how it happened this time as well. The pinch of nervousness was absolutely in both of them when getting ready. Usually it's the bride, but this time it was Arvo who was on his toes all the time. We did a few portraits before the ceremony and he was sure we had been there for 20 minutes while we were 5 minutes in.

This was one of the weddings you remember by the small emotional moments happening throughout the day. The ...

Karoliina & Kimmo – Wedding at Glehn Castle, Tallinn
Last Saturday was the day for Karoliina & Kimmo. I will cut to the chase and say up front that both of them were a bit reserved in front of the camera on their own. I was even getting some nerves on when I got the feeling that they were rushing through the schedule. But you can’t blame them - as it was a bit of a destination wedding for them, coming from Espoo to Tallinn. It was the same story when Sigrid was with Karo on the getting-ready. The first true smile she saw from the bride was when they had a few minutes with her mother to have a glass of champagne before heading for the church. You could see the mother being proud. And it see ...
