Winter Snow Wedding | Emmi & Antti
Emmi & Antti’s Winter wedding ceremony and reception were held in Tyrnävä, Finland. Their wedding was surrounded by trees that were lightly dusted in snow and a frozen river. The scent of smoke filled the air as logs of fire burnt around everyone. Emmi & Antti are both passionate about Winter and felt it was the perfect season to celebrate their relationship with their friends and family.
Emmi & Antti started off the day with a first look outside, where they would see each other for the first time on their wedding day. After this, we visited some nearby locations for their portraits together before the ceremony.
Emmi & Antti’s wedding guests were rugged up for the ceremony and embraced the snow as it gently fell down throughout the ceremony. The serenity was broken momentarily as a pair of very loud snowmobiles unintentionally interrupted the formalities, however, this only brought on laughter and smiles from everyone.
Later in the night, a few guests came up to ask if I struggled to understand what was going on, with the ceremony and speeches being spoken in Finnish. Although I may not have understood all the words that were spoken, I could feel the emotion the same way everyone else around me could.
Emmi & Antti’s Winter wedding was a beautiful example of what I believe a wedding should be about – creating a day that represents your love for each other and what is truly important to you. I loved the way their day was focused on being with their loved ones, rather than worrying about all of the little details. They weren’t worried about a schedule, they were present throughout the day and enjoyed each moment as it came.
