You can only imagine what is to have weddings on the summer’s warmest day. Outdoor ceremony in a beautiful venue at Parainen was pretty warm for all of us, especially for men. Riikka and Jussi had chosen their weddings to be held in this place just for having these gorgeous surroundings and landscapes. They themselves lives 150km far away from Parainen and guests were also travelling from other cities. This Furuvik mansion is an old representation house for the mayor of Parainen in the early 80´s.
The ceremony was intimate and every guest were like being a closer relative and not just a friend. Everything was planned nicely and the day went so quickly. Speeches came straight from the heart and atmosphere was really authentic and warm.
We shot first look and portraits before the ceremony so we didn´t have to panic about those when the actual wedding parties started. Everything went like in manual (is there a manual?) and sunset in a Finnish archipelago is beautiful. On a previous day before the wedding day, they had Riikka´s birthday party at the venue and the whole trip ended to brunch on Sunday with wedding guests. Hopefully you can enjoy the set!
