Winter wonderland – where to organise a magical winter wedding in Espoo?


It’s often believed that weddings should be held during summer. However, other seasons are also filled with endless possibilities, especially winter with its gorgeous, snowy scenery! During the winter season, it is often easier to find a wedding venue of your liking and with a smaller price tag than during the hottest summer (wedding) season.

But where to organize a memorable winter wedding in Espoo? Party venues surrounded by nature look especially gorgeous during winter where the blanket of fresh snow has remained beautifully untouched. We at Venuu have gathered the most magical wedding venues in Espoo where winter weddings are at their best! Check them out:

Koiviston Huvila

The enchanting Koiviston Huvila is located on the shore of Sahajärvi in Nuuksio! The entire villa, its yard, and saunas by the water are all restored to suit the modern day needs, but with respect to the original atmosphere and history. It is the perfect choice for a smaller wedding: the main hall, which is flooded with light from its big windows, seats 24 people around its long tables. Also, the other rooms in the villa and the two saunas outside are available for guests during the wedding. As you can see from the picture, the villa looks amazing when surrounded by a thick blanket of snow!
