Håholmen is a unique setting for the wedding celebration. The whole stay, starting from the arrival on the Viking ship “Kvitserk” and ending with the breakfast the day after, is going to appear almost unreal. The wedding night is spent in the bride and groom’s house by the sea, and the whole islet is closed off for everyone else than the bride and groom with their guests.
The wedding ceremony itself can also be arranged here, if desired.
We at Håholmen Sea Cottages arrange many weddings during a year. Together with the bride and groom, we plan a spectacular event that makes full use of the special charm and characteristic traits of
Håholmen. We can promise you a wedding that the bride and groom as well as their guests will be talking about as long as they live.
This is a very popular suggested programme:
