Summer wedding at Villa Åkerblom: Johanna and Tomi

There are no coincidences in life. The 10th year anniversary of Johanna and Tomi happened to be a summer Saturday. Tomi had planned long ago that they would get married that very day. They were lucky and were blessed with a beautiful sunny day.

The wedding dress was already waiting for Johanna when she and the bridesmaids arrived to Villa Åkerbloom. Once she was ready, she picked through the windows as their guest gathered in the garden waiting for her to come.

Once they were pronounced married, they turned to face their family and friends. Johanna's father step in front of them and locked them together with his policeman's handcuffs. What no-one was expecting was that he would take the keys and throw them into the sea. That really surprised many of the guests.

After the ceremony, we went to the Gallem-Kalella museum and took their official portrait. This has a stunning architecture and surroundings.

Everyone in the party was so much fun.

Their friends prepared some games for them. Everyone laughed so much as they answered questions to know how much they knew each other.

When the night came, they danced as if they were the only couple in the room.
