Frida & Hampus – Stockholm – June 9th, 2018

Wedding films
27 augusti, 2018

Only like 1,5 months before Frida and Hampus was going to get married, I received a text message from my friend and favorite wedding coordinator Johanna Kajson. ”Are you available June 9th?”. And actually, I was. It was one of four dates I still had free during June, July and August. She hooked me up with Frida and Hampus and the rest is, like you say, history.

To explain things a little closer, Frida Fahrman is a quite known person here in Sweden, so I was a little bit nervous about the whole thing. Sure, I have done a couple of big weddings before, but still I get a bit ”hoho” about it all. But from the first contact with Frida I was completely calm about it. She is just that warm, welcoming and humble, so you can’t help to just feel like ”ok, names problemas, I got this.”.

Said and done. I went to Stockholm the day before and met up with Frida and Hampus at their secret location (the guests didn’t even know where they were going) and from the first second I felt like this wedding will be the bomb. Lovely couple, lovely location and one of my absolute favorite photographers – Linda-Pauline – would be by my side during the day. This could not fail.

I brought my second for the wedding – Josef Runsten – along and we started up at the couples favorite hotel in Stockholm – Hotel Diplomat. That’s where the preparations took place and where Frida and Hampus hade two separate rooms to get ready in, but still met up for lunch together before the first look.

You could just touch the feeling of how it’s not just Frida and Hampus. It’s them. They are a unit. I could see it so clearly when all seven of the bridal party were together, that they were all friends, all united. Not his and hers. But theirs.

And then we took of, out to Ruin Retreat at Saltsjö-Boo, in Stockholms archipelago. A new place, that had never hosted a wedding like this before. And it was just…magic. That word is used a lot in the wedding industry, but really. This was just it. Magic. From the printery, to the flowers, to the singing from Andreas Wijk during to ceremony (oh my GOD), to the speeches and the surprise from Fridas sister Sofi and the rest of the family – Julia Frej came to sing during the dinner – to the cake and through the party. It was all just that kind of wedding you want to relive over and over again.

And now (humble statement, I know), thanks to the video – they can. The text message I got from Frida after they had seen the video will be kept private, but I can tell you this: it made me cry. A lot. And she specifically wrote that anyone that doesn’t invest in wedding film are missing out. You should listen to her. 😉

Anyhow. I’ve written this to you so many times, Frida and Hampus, but thank you. Thank you for choosing me. I am so happy I got to do this.

Cecilia & Gregory – Norrviken, Båstad – June 2nd, 2018
Cecilia and Greg. What can I say. I was contacted just a couple of months before the wedding, by their photographer - the fantastic Therese Winberg. They wanted film. Could I make it with that short notice. I could make it. And I lucky AM I, that I could make it? Just watch the video and you'll know. So, long story short: Cecilia is born in Sweden, with Swedish parents, but moved to Switzerland as a toddler. Fast forward til grown age she meets this guy that tries to get her to drink coffee with him for like two years before she finally says yes. And from that moment on (pun intended, cause they had Shania Twains From this moment on perfor ...

Cecilia & André – Gothenburg – October 28th, 2017
Cecilia and André. Two doctors, that shares the love for good food and wine, fun friends and family. Cecilia with roots from and a childhood in Brazil and André with Swedish and Finnish roots made a lovely mix for a wedding party at River Café in Gothenburg. Cecilia and André. Two grownups with the love of two teenagers who just fell in love and believe nothing in the world can stop them. In this case I absolutely believe that's true. The love these two show each other is a rare thing, I think. I think the word that most describes it is: gratitude. That is at least the feeling I got from watching them together and apart. That they are like ...

Jelena & Nicola – Bari – June 9th, 2017
Jelena and Nicola, just wow. These two people know how to have a good time. Seriously. This wedding was fun from the first moment to the last one. In Sweden, where I'm from, weddings are often traditional - sometimes with a little twist - but still traditional. Well, maybe this wedding was traditional Italian style, but it was completely new to me. I loved how the band started playing directly after the first course - people were dancing, tossing the bride and groom in the air, how the basilica was beyond every other church in Sweden, how 1/3 of the wedding stopped at a gas station on the way from the ceremony to the reception to dance ...
