As we do have close to 140 people attending and have a limited number of hotel rooms available on-site, we kindly ask those who are Finland natives (or have places in Finland) to use their own homes as an accommodation to provide our foreign guests with enough rooms in the hotel on site. 

For our foreign guests, we have hotel rooms available for you, please read and reply to the email we sent you at your earliest convenience. As we mentioned in our email, if you are traveling to Finland with someone who is not invited to our wedding, we would suggest booking a hotel in Helsinki as we have booked out the entire Svartå Slott property for our wedding guests and the restaurant will not be open to the public.

* The hotel on-site will be booked only from Sept 29-Oct 01 and the expenses are covered, no need to pay for the rooms.


Shuttle Services:

There will be shuttle services that will be operating to and from the wedding venue for all guests staying in Helsinki. 

For those of our guests staying at the hotel at the venue, there will be a shuttle service from Svartå Slott to the Holiday Bar in Helsinki, as well as a return service to Svartå Slott on Sept 29 for the welcome drinks event.
