Ice Hotel Wedding -32

Ice Hotel Wedding

Im back to tell the of the Ice Hotel , north of the artic circle in Kiruna Northern Sweden .  The destination wedding for a Scottish couple was held in early January , the Ice Hotel must be the ultimate place for a winter wedding.  I prepared for everything  like usual … but nothing can prepare you for minus  32 , it made the problem of only having daylight for less than an hour very easy.  I knew it was cold when I saw the huskies shivering !  … the photo very below of my eyebrow and eyelash  was from being outside  for just 5 minutes , I came back with frostbite of the index finger  my left hand thumb and the tip of my nose from pressing against the D3 .  Dont feel sorry for me though Sam the bride just had her wedding dress  and I had 5 layers of clothes on with two pairs of gloves .   Inside the church the temperature a cosy minus 20  and the hotel itself a warm minus 10 .

To see more photos  of the ice hotel rooms  visit my blog

for the record Im the one of the left.

Your third last shot is amazing … a true work of art. Love your sense of humor clarifying that you were the photo on the left.

What a refreshing antithesis to sunny tropical wedding photography! I especially love the empty chapel during the ceremony; apparently their friends and family would have preferred having the wedding in the tropics….

I can clearly understand why you are the best of the best … to be a part of this magnificent portfolio of the top photographers in the world. Such amazing imagery … but not only that … you went with the flow … in the coldest place on earth with no complaints … even after some frost bite. You rock! Your are exceptional! Don’t ever stop posting.
