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.

Ann-Sofie & Peter – Träslövsläge – May 20th, 2017
What can I say about Ann-Sofie and Peter, that will truly and fairly explain them and their love for each other? I slipped into this wedding quite late, when the bride won a competition where I was the prize. They then choose to buy some extra hours for me to cover more of their day and I'm really thankful they did.  I went to Varberg on the Swedish west coast on a sunny and warm Saturday morning with my friend and assistant Matilda. We arrived to Hårporten in the center of Varberg at 9.30 when the bride, called Anse, was in the middle of getting her makeup done while Peter had the last touch of his hair. I could feel som tension in both o ...

Josefin & Douglas – Glasgow – September 30th, 2017
What can I say... It Wass fall 2016, when Frida and I had a competition, were you could win us coming to your wedding. We were secretly hoping to get a fun and special wedding, maybe far up in Sweden. Something extra. Josefin entered the competition and we landed with a wedding in Scotland. My God, Scotland is a dream for almost everyone and we got it! During the year from the competition up until the wedding I got to know Josefin and she is the kind of woman you secretly envy. Not because she's breathtakingly beautiful (well, a little that too), but because she is both so freaking gently and kind and knows what she wants at the same ti ...

Servah & Carl – Winterviken, Stockholm – July 7th, 2018
This bubbly and fantastic person named Servah called me in the spring and asked if I could film her wedding. She had this energy that went right through the phone and into my heart. I could hear her excitement and how she just couldn't wait to get married to her Carl. Of course I was gonna film their wedding. We started out at the classic Hotel Drottning Kristina in the absolute center of Stockholm. Outside there were lots and lots of people, all dressed in yellow and blue. It was the day that Sweden was gonna play England in the quarterfinal in the football World Cup. And I was missing it. Again. But what the heck. As soon as I went in ...
