Our Wedding in the Sorrisniva ice igloo was the most magical experience. It almost seemed like we were in a dream for the 5 days we were there, truly a different world.
True its cold but take the right equipment and you will be fine.
On our first day we met up with Jorn Losvar our photographer. I have to mention that Jorn
helped make the whole experience even more magical. He was such a nice guy. On the first morning he took us to the nearby lake for some trial photographs before the big day. I had no problem showing my love to my wife in front of him, he was so easy to be around.
On our big day we the service went perfect, my wife and I getting married in the ice igloo along with just the preist and Jorn and his wife snapping shots away all around us. Our evening meal at the ice igloo was Reindeer and Elk! It was one of the most divine meals i have ever tasted.
The next day we went on Snow mobliles over the snow capped hills for miles and miles and Dog sledding at night over the frozen river. Wow!
The costs of a Wedding in the Sorrisniva is not cheap and you also need to be lucky to get married there as it can only marry 13 couples a year (to date) following some law. But let me tell you, it was worth every penny. Our memories of this place are pricless and have been frozen in time by Jorn Losvar's amazing pictures, some of which he has put on his website. http://www.losvar.no
We will "definatly" be going back to Alta sometime maybe on an anniverary within the next few years and would like to meet up with jorn and his wife again.
Next time though we hope to catch the northern lights!
Nick and Claire.
