EACH COUPLE HAS THEIR STORY

Let us tell your story.

We know first-hand how hard it can be to navigate the depths of Pinterest and Instagram in search of that perfect inspiration. How you can get lost in a sea of images that are all describing someone else’s story - and how it’s so easy to lose sight of yourself in the process. And we’re here to help. Meet us over coffee and let’s talk about creating designs that really are a reflection of you, and not a copy of someone else’s.

We created Nord & Mae to tell your story through truly personal weddings, intimate elopement designs and genuine lifestyle content. You are our number one inspiration for all our designs.

 

Nord & Mae was founded as a brand of the 8 year old award winning event design studio Hey Look based in Helsinki, Finland. We specialise in genuine and personal weddings, authentic story-telling and creative direction. We offer full-service wedding planning and design, floral design, styling & creative direction, as well as stationery design. 

 

Through the past years we have designed, styled or planned hundreds of weddings, events and photo shoots, worked with brands like H&M, &Other Stories and Lumene, and our work has been featured on national TV and radio as well as in many high-profile international print and online publications.

During these years we have built a great network of outstanding suppliers, vendors, freelance stylists, florists and other creatives – many of whom we call our friends now. For your wedding, event, photoshoot or project, we are happy to be able to rely on this network time and time again to produce amazing results together with our own team.

Each year we take on a very limited number of weddings, elopements and other projects to ensure the best possible service for our clients.       

Our work has been featured in many international publications including the following

About Michaela & Lotta

We have worked together for over ten years, and our passion for authentic and well-functioning design as well as our high standards for quality connected us from the very start. Perfectionists as we are, for our business we wanted to raise the sometimes lacking local standards in weddings to international level. 

 

We always walk that extra mile and put in way more hours than you’re paying us for. That probably makes us bad business women, but there simply isn’t a way that we could ever stop striving for our work to be the best it can possibly be. “That’s good enough.” isn’t part of our dictionary. One could describe us as creative and emotional, as well as pragmatic. We dream crazy big, but always come up with realistic, practical ways to achieve what we set out for. 

Telling our clients' stories is our passion. We don't care if that story is entirely "on brand" for us. We won't try and sell you stuff just because it will look great in our portfolio. We just want to show you, in the most beautiful, authentic way possible. We will make you the star of the show, of your own story, of our lives for a little moment. Being able to work with people from all over the world in this way is the greatest reward we could ever think of.

Get in touch today, and let's talk about how we can tell your story!

What our clients say

I just want to thank both of you again for the breathtakingly beautiful job you did to make our wedding absolutely perfect.

 

Michaela, thank you for putting together a wedding dream team that from hair to food to photography to music matched our wishes exactly.

 

Thinking back to what we were envisioning when we first contacted Nord & Mae, you created exactly the atmosphere and style we wished for. That in itself is incredible, because we didn't have anything specific in mind, just a loose idea of things we didn't want. It was wonderful to work with you, because we didn't have to stress at all about our big day. We could totally rely on your professionalism.

Hi Michaela & Lotta,

Everything was perfect and more than we could have ever hoped for. Thank you and everyone at Nord & Mae!

The day of our dreams would not have been possible without your amazing input and professional touch.

Really can't thank you and your team enough for everything you did for us in creating our best day ever!

It was SO amazing and we will genuinely never forget that day and our time spent planning together.

 

Sarah & Will 

Dearest Lotta, Michaela

and Team Nord & Mae!

 

As we are some 6 months into wedded bliss, I wanted to let you both know we are still living the dream. Whilst things dont always go to plan in life, I can certainly say that our wonderful wedding that you all help create from start to end went very well and to plan. I cannot think of anything that went wrong or that we could have done better. That is a true testament to your professionalism and personal touches.

 

I often think about the meetings and the planning sessions, knowing all the hard work you put in and wanted to say thank you once again.

 

Love, Eila and Nicolas
