WIN YOUR GAY-WEDDING AT THE ICEHOTEL

WIN YOUR GAY-WEDDING AT THE ICEHOTEL

VisitSweden UK launches LGBT specific pages on Facebook and Twitter


To celebrate the UK’s Marriage (Same-sex) Act finally coming into law in 2014, ICEHOTEL in partnership with Discover-the-World and VisitSweden UK are offering same-sex couples a once in a lifetime, truly intimate, personalised wedding at the ICEHOTEL in Sweden.

This fantastic giveaway coincides with the launch of VisitSweden’s LGBT tourism presence on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. The pages aim to provide fans and followers with up to date information on what’s hot for LGBT tourists to Stockholm, Gothenburg, West Sweden, Malmo, Skane and Swedish Lapland.

The prize, sponsored by Swedish Lapland specialists Discover-the-World and ICEHOTEL includes charter-flights for 2, 3 complimentary nights at ICEHOTEL (including one night’s stay in a unique ice room), a personalised wedding consultation with ICEHOTEL’s wedding concierge and some amazing added extras to make your celebration truly special. Discover-the-World will arrange your flight on their special charter and can also help book in any guests that you want to share your special day with at preferential rates.

Couples from all over the world come to Jukkasjärvi to pledge their love for each other. Already married or civil-partnered couples come to ICEHOTEL to have their union blessed in the celestially beautiful ‘ice church’ rebuilt each year (as is the hotel itself) by a different artist in the icy landscape. The serenity, purity and on-off design beauty of this setting make wedding vows and memories all the more lasting.

The wedding night can also be something truly special. Couples can spend the night surrounded by artwork made of ice and snow, by artists from all over the world who are not professional ice sculptors, but architects, graphic designers and film-directors. In the morning you will be awakened with a cup of hot lingonberry juice.

At the ICEHOTEL it never gets colder than –5 to -8ºC, regardless of the fact that the outdoor temperature sometimes drops down to -30º. You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a bed built by ice blocks, a wooden frame, mattress and it is topped with reindeer skins. It is rebuilt each winter from scratch, reincarnated into a new design by a different creator.
