It might be the middle of summer, but that doesn’t stop me wanting to share this elopement with you all today – it’s just too beautiful not to! Natalie and Andrew were married on Christmas day in Lapland!!
The ceremony took place in the Luvattumaa Ice Gallery. “I love Christmas and we both love adventures!” explained the bride. “We chose to elope on 25th December in an ice chapel and we arriving by reindeer sleigh! The ceremony was officiated by a local registrar who was wearing a traditional gown. I entered down some stairs, and walked through an ice tunnel to get to the altar, which was made of carved ice.”
After the ceremony they went for a meal at a local restaurant. “A funny moment was just after we arrived at the restaurant, the waitress accidentally spilt a whole glass of champagne on my dress! I was fine about it (my dress was vintage and only cost £52!) and it didn’t leave a mark, but the poor waitress was mortified and wouldn’t accept that we were OK with it so insisted on giving us a free bottle of champagne and her details in case it needed dry cleaning!”
