Ice Hotel storybook wedding album pictures by Reel Life Photos

Zoe approached me early in 2009 to see if I was up for photographing another wedding  in the Ice Hotel at Jukkasjärvi in Sweden – on 28 December 2010 –  after finding my original Blog post for Colin and Sarah’s wedding that I covered in 2007.  Apparently I appeared so enthusiastic with my ideas that she was completely bowled over so coupled with the fact that we don’t charge for travel – just accommodation – and was happy to throw in her planned UK reception in Bath too – she quickly decided that we were the right wedding photographers for their special wedding.   This is the resulting Italian made storybook wedding album – which I’ve just finished designing for them. I also had to squeeze in all their UK reception – AND church wedding blessing (yes – it was like a full-blown second wedding!) into this same album but think it will look better in a separate wedding blog post at least…if not in a second album! xx Elaine

Just love the sheen on the clear ice, as it reflects the coloured light. Perfect for wedding pictures! The guys look great in uniform too!

The picture on the bottom left shows Eva - who usually conducts the civil wedding ceremonies. She is just wonderful!
