Being an adventure wedding photographer, I spend a lot of time thinking about different adventure wedding and elopement ideas. In the last year, I’ve visited Finnish Lapland twice, and I think that a Lapland elopement could be the perfect destination for couples looking to tie the knot in a winter wonderland.

Lapland Elopement Inspiration

Lapland is a winter lover’s dream location. During the winter time, the whole landscape is covered in a blanket of glistening snow and ice. Lakes freeze over and trees become tall frozen statues. Daylight hours in Lapland over the winter are relatively short. But that shouldn’t put you off considering it for your wedding. When the winter sun shines, it casts the most beautiful golden glow over the frozen landscape.

For a real arctic adventure, why not consider incorporating a husky safari into your adventure elopement?
Trotting through frozen forests on the way to your wedding will help you to feel calm and relaxed as you get ready to embark on a new and exciting adventure into married life.

Long winter nights also have their advantage, with the chance of searching for the Aurora Borealis. If you decide to brace the cold weather, you can go out into the wilderness with a guide to hunt for them. However, if you’d rather stay somewhere a little warmer on your wedding night, staying in a glass cabin like the ones at the Northern Lights Ranch is the perfect option.
