Imagine a fairy castle steeped in history and embedded in greenery, right next to a small lake in the Swedish countryside. Drive one hour from Stockholm, walk up the gravel path to the grand stairs and there it is: the manor house Hedenlunda Slott. It looks like something out of a painting and is a beautiful place for conferences and weekend trips, but more than anything it is perfect for special occasions. “The whole setting is made for weddings, and many couples choose to get married by the lake,” says Regina Hamilton, head of marketing at Hedenlunda Slott.
