Finnish Mansion Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Let’s be honest, I was sold as soon as I heard the words “Finnish mansion.” Then I saw the images from Petra Veikkola Photography and I fell completely in love. Gorgeous gowns from Pukuni, lovely accessories by Aino, and Kukka Fiori tie everything together even better than we could have ever imagined!

From the photographer, Petra Veikkola Photography: The styled shoot took place in an unique Finnish environment in Hostel Tuorla, Tuorla mansion area and park. The mansion dates back from the middle ages and has probably been a part of bishop’s cattle ranch. The area were the shooting took place consist of old buildings, a large park, a small pond and an old mill. The Finnish nature and the beautiful location was the main inspiration for the shoot.

The colour palette was kept soft and minimal to reflect minimalist aesthetics that are often connected to Finland and Finnish design. All bridal dresses were made just for this shoot. The shoot was initiated by Saara from Pukuni (the maker of bridal dresses) and Satu from Aino (the maker of hair adornments). They wanted to gather together their dream team to showcase the truly talented and passionate professionals that can be found in Finland. The shoot went really smoothly and everyone was also having a good time.

Farm to Table Upstate NY Wedding

Romantic Weddings

The amount of love we have for this wedding is out of this galaxy. Using farm to table elements for a rustic yet completely stylish and relaxed look, Ben and Dennis’ wedding wins us over at every glance. Of course, the images captured all too well by Pat Furey don’t hurt either!

From the groom, Ben: We were going for simple, masculine upstate elegance. We wanted natural earth tones; we avoided flowers altogether and focused on foliage and natural elements that would add texture; my favorite were the dried sunflowers that had been left in the field to dry for use at our wedding — they were odd but stunning…

I worked with the florist to design and make the table centerpieces; I found the lanterns over the summer at Target and ordered enough for use at the wedding. There were two sizes and the larger flanked our bars and our DJ table. We also used them to line our driveway for our dinner event on Friday evening before the wedding. We had valet at the top of our drive and folks walked down the candlelit drive to arrive at our home where a tent was in the backyard for our Friday evening arrival dinner and bonfire.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun with it. There are no rules that you cannot break. Think outside the box (or mason jar as I joked with Kim at Flower Blossom Farm). And use your wedding as an excuse to try new arrangements, visit stores and day dream about ideas, try new foods, taste new drinks.
