All of Skansen open air museum will turn into a celebration of love come 9 June. Wedding bells will chime for all wannabe wedding couples. It’s the third annual drop-in wedding ceremony arranged at the famous open air museum in Stockholm. So if you want to tie the knot in Stockholm, be sure to come early. Last year the first couple queued up outside the gates at 6 AM to be the first couple wed.

Everything needed for a successful day will be available: photographers, florists, champagne bar, make-up artists and music. The restaurants offer wedding menus, picnic baskets, pastries and cakes and the musicians will play wedding marches and waltzes at the outdoor dance hall. At the glassworks the happy couples may eternalize their breaths inside of a glass heart.

And it’s a new record! A whooping 436 couples were happily united at Skansen. Last year 252 couples were married, in 2010 the number was 357.
