Wedding presents/Gift ideas

We have decided not to ask for any wedding presents or gifts as we don't have any room in our small one bedroom flat for more toasters! We'd also have problems trying to take presents/gifts back to England from Sweden.

If you would like to make a contribution to the cost of our wedding and honeymoon then that would be greatfully appreciated.

Any song suggestions?

We've booked a band for the reception which will certainly help to get the party going. After they have finished we'll have more music being played so we'd like to hear your suggestions (Don't worry - ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' will definitely be played!). Post your song suggestions to the comments area of this blog and we'll put together a playlist. Cheers.

The Church

We're getting married on Saturday May 2, 2009 in Sofia's hometown of Falkenberg, Sweden. The church is called St Laurentii Church and is located in the old part of the town centre.

After the ceremony, the reception will be held in Vinbergs Bygdegård just outside Falkenberg. We do recommend that you either arrange with a hire car for your stay or order a taxi from the church to the venue.

Useful websites

Some useful websites for things to see and do:


Getting there and back

We recommend that you either fly with Ryanair from Stanstead to Gothenburg or with EasyJet from Gatwick to Copenhagen. There are other airlines but these are by far the cheapest options.

From Gothenburg to Falkenberg by train takes 1.5 hours.
From Copenhagen to Falkenberg by train takes 2.5 hours.
