A modern fairytale wedding in Copenhagen is dressing up the blog this Friday. This is one gorgeous and stylish couple. The bride Lea is from Denmark, and the groom Teemu is finnish, so this is real Scandinavian Love. Lea prepared at the amazing Frederiksberg Mansion, and they had their wedding reception at the super stylish Mielcke & Hurtigkarl in Copenhagen, which we love. Just look at those design details from the interior. The incredible Camilla Jørvad Photography captured their day equally stunning as the couple. And once again we’re blown away. Lea is breathtaking in her Jenny Packham gown, and those cute little daughters…sigh. Hearts melting at the office today.

FROM THE BRIDE: We just wanted a very relaxed, intimate day, gathering all our family and friends who are spread around Denmark, Finland, England, the US etc. We also wanted to minimize transportation and logistics so our guests could just show up in one place and enjoy the day with us in one log stress-free and uninterrupted stretch. So we kept everything local. Teemu got ready with his brother and best man in our home on Frederiksberg and I got ready with our two daughters at a mansion nearby.

I chose a Jenny Packham design at Maria Fekih’s salon on Frederiksberg. I lived in London from 2003-2013 and met Teemu there, so I knew it had to be a British designer and I always loved her laid back and simple yet elegant style.

Teemu is gluten and lactose sensitive, so we found a vegan cake maker, Kasia Henowna, on Pinterest.

If I can offer any piece of advice to other couples who have kids and are not prioritizing a wedding, it is that time flies. Don’t keep postponing it because it seems like a big task to overcome. Do it! When you have kids it just means you have so much more love in your life and so much more to celebrate.

FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Danish Lea and Finnish Teemu chose one of Copenhagen’s most unique and innovative restaurants to host their wedding reception. The couple were a dream to work with as a photographer: kind, generous and with an effortless elegant style. In addition to this downplayed elegance, they added so many quirky and informal personal details and elements to their day that reflected their warm and relaxed personalities. The bride arrived to the garden ceremony in one of Copenhagen’s many bicycle taxis. The bride’s aunt was the officiant for their civil ceremony and her cousin played the guitar both during the ceremony and as Lea sang a song for her groom during the dinner. Bugs have a special meaning to the couple so they incorporated bugs and bug names of all kinds on the seating chart and table numbers which was a perfect match for the garden and bug inspired decor at the famous gourmet restaurant Mielcke & Hurtigkarl where their reception was hosted.
