My Brother’s Wedding

rice 1

My twin brother got married to his lovely wife on August 3rd in Porvoo cathedral, Finland. It was a sunny and warm summer day and I was so happy that both Matthew and I could be there! Here’s a few samples of the 400 photos we managed to take during the day.


Such a gorgeous couple!


My other brother’s girlfriend’s dad provided this amazing vintage car, and he was kind enough to do the driving too. (Thank god it didn’t rain.)


The dress and the car.


The wedding party was held in a barn on the bride’s parent’s farm. It was a really nice traditional place surrounded by Finnish nature.

The official wedding pig. Poor poor pig. Have to say I was shocked when I saw it and did not go anywhere near it.


My mum with my little niece – like two peas in a pod.


My niece and her dad. She seemed to enjoy the wedding (and the attention).


Me and my youngest bro.


The wedding cake was yummy and the bride managed to step on my brother’s foot – that means she’ll wear the pants in the marriage 🙂


The whole crew – only one brother missing. (I look like a midget next to my giant brothers.)


The bridesmaids worked really hard to make the wedding as great as it was, thanks!


Some random jumping going on…

Last but not least, the unofficial wedding photographer. He took all the photos in this post. (Apart from the last one.) Thanks Matthew! <3

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!
