We start preparing weddings at the request of guests, but we remain close in terms of the planning. We help the couple with all the details in the planning period and even during the event itself. It is important to discuss the menu, choice of wine, table layouts, flowers, service, gift table and other details. We wish to contribute with our experience and hospitality. When the big day approaches, we will have direct contact with the toastmaster, so that the day runs smoothly and according to your wishes and plans.
Capacity, wedding dinner and band
Many want get married outdoors, weather permitting. If want an indoor wedding, we hold the ceremony in Dagligstuen of the hotel. There is also a small chapel in the old school house in Finse, which is used occasionally.
Jøkulsalen has a maximum capacity of 80 people. Adjacent to Jøkulsalen, you’ll find our restaurant, with a sliding door connecting the two rooms. This one opens for groups of up to 120 people. You can have access to our ‘Daily lounge’ (Dagligstuen), which exits onto a beautiful terrace with views over the glacier. In Dagligstuen, there are comfy sofas and armchairs where aperitif and cakes are often served.
The wedding dinner can comprise of three or four courses. The menu is created by our chef to the bride and groom’s wishes. We import wine from Moestue. For simplicity’s sake, we offer a wine and food list that the bride and groom can choose from.
If you wish to have a live band, please be aware that this is something you yourself must arrange. Please be advised that the shipping and transportation costs are relatively high. Don’t hesitate to ask us about arrangements and help with this if you so desire. In the restaurant, there is an elevated plateau that can easily be used as a stage for the band.
