Pip & Pete

Dear Rue,

Well, where do we start?

From the initial email conversation, Rue made us feel special and listened to and this continued until after the wedding. She is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Her friendliness puts you instantly at ease and no question you ask feels like a silly one. She is so professional and courteous.

She constantly keeps you updated with the progress of your application and how things are progressing right up to your meeting the day before the wedding. This makes the whole experience so easy and perfect.

Our wedding on Valentine's Day was made so magical and special by Rue and Mikko. Both of you made us feel so important and the relaxed atmosphere certainly came through in the photos.

Having a few pictures from Rue on the day was amazing so we could share with family instantly. Our official photos were available so quickly and they certainly captured our joy on the day.

Thank you so much for making our special day magical and an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives together.

The only downside was no Northern lights in the sky but hey you can't control the weather 😂.

Again, our heartfelt thanks for our magical experience. You are the best and deserve all the accolades that come your way.

Love Pip & Pete x

We wanted an intimate wedding that would be stress-free and about "us".

From the moment we contacted Rue at Sun and Snow Weddings we felt that she had instantly understood our requirements and really listened to what we wanted. There was never any pressure to do anything that was outside of our remit. And what a day we had!

Rue had organised everything to perfection. The ceremony was word perfect, captured the essence of our relationship and was particularly special as it was conducted by the lovely Katarina in full Finnish dress.

The photographer, Mikko, was great and never made two camera-shy people feel awkward and the results of this were reflected in the most amazing set of photos we could ever have wished for.

It was a magical setting, a wonderful winter wedding day and with a sunset that looked like it had been ordered especially for us!

Thank you xx

Hi Rue,

I just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day as special as it was.

From the moment we first had our first interaction a couple of years back, we knew we wanted to book our wedding through you and couldn't thank you enough for helping with everything, including every little silly question I threw your way.

Our wedding day at the northern lights ranch was nothing like we would ever imagine!

Everything about it was incredible!

Thank you for making sure everything ran so smoothly and perfectly.

The photos from your photographer were amazing and above and beyond our expectation.

Thank you again :)

Dear Rue,

In February we tied the knot with only the company of each other at the Northern Light Ranch in Lapland. We wanted to keep our wedding as simple as possible and that just long enough to be personal and meaningful.

A thousand hugs for the perfect day and absolutely what we had hoped for.

We're still very impressed how wonderful it was to get married on such a beautiful piece of earth 🫶. With your professional support and organisation we felt so relaxed and in safe hands.

Our wedding day could not be better and you made it so special for us 💝 Thank you Rue, for everything.

From the moment we contacted you to enquire about getting married in Lapland you have been amazing.

You took all the worry and stress out of everything and were there for us every step of the way. We could have contacted you a thousand times and nothing would be too much trouble. We can’t express how much we appreciate it.

The lady at the salon was amazing and so kind, I showed photos of hair and make up that I’d like on the day at the trial and it turned out exactly how I’d imagined, so on the day I knew I was in good hands- I can’t thank her enough!!

All of the staff at the Northern Lights Ranch were super helpful and so welcoming and we’d like to extend our thanks to our waitress, Mauna, at our meal after the ceremony- so lovely!!

The ranch was so cosy and intimate and sitting next to the fire while looking out into Narnia was indescribable. Just perfect - and the children enjoyed looking out at the reindeers too! The food was outstanding and probably the best meal we’ve ever had - and all of our guests agree too!

My dad and I arriving to the snow chapel on a reindeer ride was super special and the perfect touch to a Lapland wedding - and the lady accompanying the reindeer was so kind too (and helpful - it was a big dress to fit into a small sleigh!!)

The snow chapel itself was out of this world. It was everything we could have hoped for and more - like stepping into a fairytale - perfect. Our daughter and niece being our beautiful flower girls and walking down the aisle to the sound of our son playing the piano to one of our favourite songs and then being our ring bearer is something that we will never forget.

Katarina the registrar was such a lovely lady and so kind to us too.

Mikko the photographer was also lovely and friendly - and got the photos done super fast so we weren’t out in the cold too long - especially as it was -25 (something we will never forget!) The photos are magical, we still look at them nearly every day.

The cake and gingerbread were beautiful and so tasty! The gingerbread name places were a lovely touch too.

The flowers were also stunning. So pretty!

The fireworks before dinner were also outstanding and the perfect end to the ceremony - everyone should have them!!

Everything was just perfect, we wouldn’t have changed anything. It was everything we had dreamed of and more. All our guests agree it was magical, perfect and something out of a fairytale. So thank you Rue, and everyone that was involved on the day- for making our dreams come true.

Love and hugs,

Mr and Mrs Pickrell.

Dear Rue,

We would like to take this opportunity to say a really big thank you for helping make our wedding a very special occasion. Your care and attention to detail ensured the whole experience was truly magical; a day that will stay with us forever. Your warmth, passion and personable nature added to the experience you genuinely made us feel special. Thank you also to Marko who was equally personable and took the time and care to ensure he captured the experience to give us lasting memories; we look forward to seeing the pictures with excitement.

May we ask that you pass on our sincere thanks to him on our behalf and wish him well for the future, also to both the lady that served our drinks ( please forgive our ageing brains we cannot remember her name) and made us so welcome and the reindeer driver, they were both brilliant.

We would just like say that we had such a fantastic wedding at a spectacular venue all wonderfully organised by Rue. She is a genuinely warm and bubbly lady who will make your day a magical one to remember. Her organisation is perfect, her advice accurate and thorough. Follow her professional advice and guidance of the Finnish administrative requirements and all turns out perfect. We thank you Rue for organising and making our day so very special. We wish you the very best for the future. From us a perfect 10/10.

We wish both you and Larry a happy new year and the very best in your future endeavours and we hope our paths may cross again sometime.

Kindest regards

Hi Rue,

Now we are home, we would like to thank you and Sun & Snow Weddings for making our wedding day so very special.

The Ice Chapel is an amazing place to get married and it couldn't have been any more perfect.

Your help and support arranging all the minor details made it an unforgettable experience even when 2 of our suitcases didn't turn up until 2 hours before the wedding.

The ceremony felt very personal to us and our family couldn't praise you enough.

Mr & Mrs Long!

Rebecca & Nik
