There’s love and light in lockdown! Huge congratulations are in order to Saara and Meri Aalto who have officially tied the knot. After a three and a half year engagement, the Finnish pop princess and her long-time fiancé held a private registry in Helsinki, Finland.
“With all of us feeling so much anxiety and uncertainty right now, Meri and I wanted to celebrate love and put something positive out into the world,” said Saara.
“When we had to postpone the wedding we were heartbroken, but then we realised we could still hold a private registration and celebrate our love together. It was the perfect moment.”
Originally, the Aaltos had organised a full ceremony with family and friends to take place in Europe, this summer. But, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the duo settled on a more private affair involving just Meri and Saara. Don’t fear though – the couple have every intention to hold a second, bigger ceremony in the near future!
Saara, the X Factor and Dancing On Ice star, will also be hosting Queens Live a livestream concert with Facebook on 1 May 2020 at 7pm. And today, Saara also launches her singing masterclass – a five-week course that offers budding singers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be trained by Saara herself. Fancy it?
Congratulations to both from everyone here at DIVA!
