Uppsala is one of the oldest cities in Sweden and is home to both the archbishop of the Church of Sweden and the oldest university in the Nordic region. Here there are mighty buildings, historic and international architecture and beautiful details and places such as the botanical garden.
Grand hotell hörnan in Uppsala is inspired by buildings in Italy, and was built according to European standards. Grand Hotell opens for the first time during the spring and winter of 1907 and then becomes Uppsala's largest and most exclusive hotel with 29 rooms. It is also the first hotel in Uppsala to install central heating.
The hotel's style is period-typical neo-baroque with touches of art nouveau in the decor. The facades are plastered in a light color and have gently curving gables, richly decorated with ornaments. The beautiful balconies have wrought iron railings in undulating shapes.
In the botanical garden is the fantastic Linneanum orangery, which was a donation from Gustav III to Uppsala University. It is said that the building has its inspiration from the Greek colonial city of Paestum in Italy. The orangery, which was completed at the beginning of the 19th century, is one of the few orangeries that is still used for its original purpose.
For the bride and groom who wish, they can have their wedding ceremony in the botanical garden in front of the orangery and it is also possible to have their wedding party here inside the orangery with room for 135 guests.
In addition to weddings, the botanical garden is a fantastic place for wedding portraits and portrait photography, and for the bride and groom getting married in or near Uppsala, it is a perfect place for a First Look. In addition to the beautiful orangery, there are plenty of other environments, including the kitchen garden and one of my personal favorites, the Scandinavian mountains.
