Love & marriage

Helsinki, 23 degrees


A wedding ring is a symbol of commitment; a promise, a pledge, and a vow. It is a mutual agreement to become one instead of two.

Last weekend I was lucky enough to witness a dear friend's wedding in the Katajanokka district of Helsinki. You might remember the bachelorette party of my friend from my previous blog post. If you missed it, you'll find it here. The wedding reception was held at the legendary seaside Katajanokka Casino, which suited the couple perfectly as they share the love for the sea and have sailing as a common hobby. My friend was radiant in her stunning wedding dress and one could really sense that there was love in the air. I've known my friend for five years now, and she has never looked better! I am so happy for her. The wedding looked like the couple, which I always think is the most important feature of any wedding. I placed an orchid in my hair as I've always believed that they represent love, luxury, beauty and strength.

Viime viikonloppuna minulla oli ilo todistaa ystäväni hääjuhla Katajanokan kasinolla. Itse vihkiminen oli tapahtunut aikaisemmin maistraatissa, joten hääjuhla alkoi häävalojen vaihtamisella ja jatkoi sitten ruokailulla ja juhlimisella. Muistatte varmasti ystäväni polttaritkin, niistä voitte lukea tarkemmin tästä aikaisemmasta blogikirjoituksesta. Koska hääparia yhdistää rakkaus merta kohtaan, mielestäni hääpaikka oli loistovalinta. Ystäväni säteili onnesta ja olen todella onnellinen hänen puolestaan. Olen tuntenut ystäväni jo viisi vuotta, mutta mielestäni hän ei ole koskaan aikaisemmin näyttänyt näin onnelliselta. Hiuskoristeeksi valitsin orkidean, joka mielestäni symboloi rakkautta, kauneutta ja voimaa.


Have you been to any wedding this summer? What kind of weddings do you prefer?

Oletteko itse käyneet tänä kesänä häissä? Minkälaisista häistä pidätte?
