BEST OF WEDDING VENUES IN HELSINKI - PART 1

We often get asked which venues we recommend for weddings in the capital area here in Finland. Well, there's no simple answer to that question. Obviously the perfect venue completely depends on the your personal wedding style – there's many options for every taste. To make the search a bit easier for you, today we're starting our little round-up series of our favorite wedding venues.

In this first part, we show you some of the most popular places for a wedding reception by the sea. Note that this is not a comprehensive overview, just a few tested picks.

Meiltä usein kysytään suosituksia hääjuhlan viettopaikkaan pääkaupunkiseudulla. Tietenkään suoraa vastausta tähän ei ole, sillä kaikki riippuu häiden tyylistä ja juhlapaikan vaatimuksista. Jotta juhlapaikan etsiminen olisi hieman helpompaa, esittelemme suosikki paikkojamme blogissamme.

Tänään tutustumme juhlapaikkoihin, jotka ovat meren äärellä. Huomaathan, että kyseessä ei ole kattava esittely juhlapaikoista, vaan muutama testattu suosikkimme.




Saaristo (Klippan) is a really popular wedding venue and often booked up years in advance for the summer months. The beautiful wooden mansion with its red roof is located in the bay of Helsinki's market square and can be reached by boat from a little peer next to the Silja Line terminal. The white interior of the space makes it a lovely backdrop for your wedding decor and flowers in any color, really.

Saaristo (Klippan) on erittäin suosittu häidenvietto paikka ja on usein kesäkuukausina varattu  vuosiksi eteenpäin. Kaunis valkoinen huvila sijaitsee kauppatorin ja Silja Linen terminaalin välissä. Valkoinen sisustus tekee häästailauksesta helppoa värille kuin värille.

Särkänlinna, an old little fortress of the shore from Café Ursula is a historical and wonderful venue for summer weddings. There are two different spaces; the restaurant upstairs and the Piper Hall downstairs - both fit about 130 guests for a sit-down dinner. While the upstairs space is more elegant-rustic, the downstairs piper hall gives you that real historical fortress feeling. And the inner yard is perfect for some little outdoor activities without the sea wind taking the fun away.

I love the upstairs restaurant space here; not only does it feature beautiful sea views to both sides of the space, but a fun feature is that the floor is slightly angled – so the canon balls could be rolled from one end to the other. When considering this as your wedding venue, just remember that very old or walking-impaired people might have a hard time getting up the narrow stairway to the upstairs restaurant.

Särkänlinna on ihana pieni linnoitus Cafe Ursulan edustalla, se on historiallinen ja kaunis sijainti kesähäille. Särkänlinnassa on kaksi tilaa; Yläkerran ravintola ja Piper-sali alakerrassa. Molempiin mahtuu noin 130 vierasta istuvalle illalliselle.  Yläkerran tila on eleganttinen ja rustiikkinnen, alakerran Piper-sali on historiallinen ja linnoitusmainen.  Sisäpiha on loistava erilaisille aktiviteeteille.

Yläkerran ravintola on ihana: merinäkymä salin molemmin puolin ja vanha vino lattia, joka on rakennettu vinoksi tykinkuulien vierittämistä varten. Huomioittehan, että vanhoille ja liikuntaesteisille ihmisille tilaan pääseminen saattaa olla hieman hankalaa.

On Helsinki's most popular tourist attraction island Suomenlinna lies this unique wedding venue, Tenalji von Fersen. Once this space was a storage for crops, now it's an event venue, super-popular for summer weddings. It's not a restaurant, so you'll need to bring in your own catering and drinks – which often is a plus, but of course brings along some extra organization tasks for you. The good news is though that the space has chairs & tables ready, so you won't need to get your own rentals.

Suomenlinna on suosittu turistikohde, mutta sieltä löytyy myös yksi suosituimmista kesähäiden viettopaikoista, Tenalji von Fersen. Tila toimi ennen viljavarastona ja on nykyään suosittu tapahtumatila. Se ei ole ravintola, vaan sinun tulee tuoda oma catering ja juomat, joka yleensä on hyvä asia, mutta vaatii lisää organisointia. Pöydät ja tuolit löytyvät tilasta valmiiksi.

Villa Ruusuniemi in Vuosaari was the setting for this wedding we showed you recently. A really lovely  space from the 70's, great for smaller weddings. Not only is there space for dinner & lounging, loads of terrace space and a big yard, but there's also a sauna and a pool - all included in the rental price. You can bring your own drinks and choose your own catering, but after tasting the wedding menu there a month ago, we really recommend you to let Marcelle of Cestoni Gourmet (one of the venue owners) work her magic and serve you a really delicious wedding menu.

Villa Ruusuniemeen teimme nämä häät, jotka näytimme teille jo aikaisemmin. Ihana tila 70-luvulta, joka on loistava pienille häille. Siellä on tilaa illalliselle ja oleskelulle,   iso piha ja terassi sekä loistavat sauna- ja uimatilat - kaikki sisältyvät vuokran hintaan. Voit tuoda oman cateringin ja juomat, mutta suosittelemme tilaamaan cateringin Marcellelta Gastoni Gourmetilta, joka on yksi tilan omistajista. Marcelle tekee loistavaa ruokaa!

Boathouse is a unique venue just off Kaivopuisto on a little island in the baltic. Ideal for more contemporary, nautical weddings.

Boathouse on ihana ja uniikki tila Kaivopuiston edustalla, ideaalinen eteenkin merihenkisille häille.

Restaurant Saari is another popular spot for nautical themed weddings, a little more rustic than Boathouse. Set on its own little island to which you transfer by boat from Carusel at Kaivopuisto.

Ravintola Saari on myös erittäin suosittu tila merihenkisille häille, joka on kuitenkin hieman rustiikkisempi kuin Boathouse. Omalla saarella sijaitsevalle huvilalle pääsee veneellä, joka lähtee Kaivopuistosta, cafe Carusellin luota.

Villa Andania: A lovely old villa all the way on the end of the Kallahti peninsula. Perfect for smaller, intimate weddings, sauna & sea-dipping included.

  1. Hyvä koonti romanttisista hääpaikoista. Modernien kaupunkihäiden ystäville suosittelisin esim. G18 salia. Paikka tarjoaa myös hienot puitteet hääkuvien ottamiseen.

  2. Thanks so much for your tips! Just booked the Poliisien kesäkoti for our wedding, which is exactly the kind of place I was looking for: free choice catering, sauna, by the sea, close to city center (8minutes from where we live, actually), enough room for all our friends and family and plenty of opportunities to make it our own!
    I was starting to think those kind of places don't exist! :)
