Atmospheric winter wedding, the Blue Hour Wedding
A winter wedding during the blue hour is a magical ritual. What else could such a wintery light phenomenon mean but everlasting happiness? In the middle of a nearby forest, sheltered by cembran pines and firs, is nature’s own wedding chapel. Candles bring light, hope and glimmer to the darkening, love-filled evening.
The Lakomäki Forest Manor in northern Central Finland is an idyllic full-service wedding venue where friendly service meets a romantic rural manor environment and genuine flavours to make your special day unforgettable.
We cherish food traditions while combining them with modern cuisine. Our tasty foods are homemade from start to finish with our kitchen’s own recipes, using clean and fresh ingredients of the North.
We’ll celebrate your special day in a professional and heartfelt manner!
