The bride, accompanied by her suited father, looked stunning in an ivory gown featuring a low-cut back framed by lace embroidery. 

With a long multi-layered train and sheer back, the mother-of-one cut an elegant figure.

Making the most of the pretty back on the dress, Minttu pinned her glossy raven tresses into an updo, secured by a gem-encrusted hairpin.

Speaking on the cover of the latest edition of Finnish lifestyle magazine Kauneus and Terveys, Minttu admitted: 'It took some time before he trusted me.

'Kimi is very wary of people. He always wonders if people are sincere or not.

'But eventually we established trust between us and in May last year he asked me to stop work to move in with him in Switzerland to take care of me.'

'For Kimi, his family comes before everything else,' she said. 

'At work, he might seem hard and selfish, but at home he's a very different person — warm and wonderful. I would not stay in a relationship where the other is like 'Whatever'.

'He wants to have more children,' Minttu continued. 'If it was up to him he would be a dad again right away. I too would like to have a second child if pregnancy did not have so many negatives.

'But one point on which we do agree is that we do not want there to be too much of an age gap between our children,' she added.
