We had a civil ceremony.
The Ice Chapel at The Kakslauttanen Hotel in Finnish Lapland.
We were both taken to and from the chapel in sleighs drawn by reindeer.
First night was spent in an igloo. Due to fly out on honeymoon to Japan on Valentines Day.
Everything was perfect and I would recommend the location to any brides looking for something a bit different.
