ANNA + PETER | August 2013
HSS Boathouse Häät | Liuskasaari Häät | Hotel Rivoli | Saksalainen Kirkko Häät | International Nautical Wedding at HSS Boathouse Helsinki | Finnish British Wedding
I photographed this wedding back in 2013 (!). While I like to hold on to my old work to be able to see how I grow over the years, I encourage your to check out my more recent work, here.
Anna and Peter live in London so all the wedding planning was done from abroad. We communicated through e-mail and met only a couple of months before the event. Anna wrote me that they were planning a Finnish-English wedding with half of the guests coming from London. They wanted a beautiful, romantic and easy going wedding, in a traditional Helsinki seaside scenery.
A mixture of guests from different culture is something I experienced and much cherished at my own wedding, so it felt like this was certainly an even I could much relate to. It was an honor to document Anna and Peter’s day. They are such a wonderful, fun and easy-going couple, and I got to see the strong love they have for each other, and their deep acceptance of each others’ personalities.
Katariina Ojala assisted me at this wedding, the balcony shots at the church are taken by her, and also the awesome shot of the flower girl running on the Liuskasaari island hill.
