PHOTO GALLERY:
Our wedding vacation in several towns and villages in Finland
June / July 2005


Page Description

This photogallery consists of many photos taken during my and Malin's 5-week wedding vacation in Finland and Baltic countries starting from the 17th of June to the 23rd of July. We got married on the 25th of June 2005 in Pedersore church, Jakobstad, Finland. We spent the first 2 weeks visiting several towns and villages in Finland such as Larsmo coast (summer cottage), Jakobstad, Purmo, Vaasa, Kokkola, and Bennas (Malin's father house). The next 2 weeks we spent the honeymoon in Estonia and Latvia, while the last week we stayed part in Bennas and part in Stockholm at malin's aunt. This photo gallery do not include photos from the wedding, Estonia and Latvia, since these are found in seperate web photo-galleries. However in this photogallery there are photos taken during our voyage with the car from Bennas to Helsinki via Tampere, and back way home from Helsinki to Bennas via Jyvaskyla.

Our journey begins! After we have landed in the airport of Arlanda (Stockholm), we went to the nearby town called Marsta, where Malin used to live and work for a couple of years. Here we have our favourite pizzeria who makes very large and good pizza, with a menu of more than 50 pizzas to choose from at reasonable prices.

When we arrived to Bennas (district of Pedersore), there was a traditional 'village' festival going on in Jakobstad. Groups of people from several different nearby villages came up with their village costumes, and played their traditional songs and their dances. It was a charming event with plenty of music abd dancing.

A small botanical garden in Jakobstad. Despite I visited Jakobstad more than 3 times in Summer, it was now the first time I knew about this garden. In June, it was still planting time in Finland. In Malta it is time for seed setting and drying off
