Brittany ♥ Paul – Scandinavian Garden Wedding

Through 3 years of writing this blog, I have often found myself thinking how to define a Scandinavian wedding. We Scandinavians take so much pride in our design tradition – the modern, white, straightlined style that we see reflected in so much Scandinavian furniture and architecture… It’s easy to forget that we also have tons of design in the other end of the Scandinavian style spectre, which is in fact colourful, folkloric, patterned and fairytale-like.

You might already have seen this wedding on numerous other blogs, including 100 Layer Cake and Green Wedding Shoes, but I felt that my blog would be missing something important, if I didn’t find place for this wedding too. Copenhagen-based Brittany designed her wedding with inspiration from the place where she and Paul had their first date together – the lovely Tivoli gardens, creating a landscape of huge paper flowers and colourful banners. Absolutely magical, and the ultimate garden wedding.
