Gulistan & Maitham – Märsta – April 7th, 2018

Wedding films
2 augusti, 2018

Guli contacted me in August 2017 and wanted me to film their Kurdish-Arabic wedding. Since I have no boundaries I immediately said yes, despite the fact I knew nothing about traditional Kurdish or Arabic weddings. As the months went by and we arrived at wedding week I was actually panicking. Not that I would ever show it to the couple, but I was really nervous that I would mess things up, because that’s what you often do the first time you do something.

But no.

The second I walked in the door at Gulis sisters neighbours house I felt like home. Nurcan, the sister, was so open, warm, supporting and welcoming and Gulistan showed close to zero nerves. Along with her two closest friends and lots of relatives I and my second shooter Matilda was taken for a ride we will never forget and I don’t think there are enough words to describe it – I think the video does it better. And what you’ll notice is that it’s not the classic Middle East kinda wedding film, cause that’s not what they wanted. They wanted what I do. So that’s what they got.

Gulistan and Maitham – two of the most genuine people I have had the honor of meeting. May you both smile your way through life. Together.

Second shooter: Matilda Berthu.
Venue: Mor Johannes Festvåning.
Music: Tim Halperin – Forever Starts Today.

Åsa & Pontus – Örenäs Slott – June 24th, 2017
So, I got the question last year, from the best wedding coordinator in Sweden, if I was free on "Midsommar", which is Swedens most celebrated weekend during the summer. She was planning the wedding of a football player, playing for the National team of Sweden and his girlfriend and they wanted a videographer. I was so new, had only done one wedding when I got the question, so maybe I should have said no. This was about to be a big wedding. But "no" is not my thing. "Yes" is. A few months before the wedding, the groom wanted to make a film with his speech, cause he knew that he wouldn't be able to "hold it together" during the wedding recep ...

Jenny & Johan – Säfsen – January 27th, 2018
Jenny wrote to me just a few weeks before the wedding, not having very high hopes that I could film their wedding. But at least she wanted to ask, she wrote. But even with a short notice we made things happen and I am so glad we did! Jenny is fireworks. She is one of the most pure people I've met. Her laughter and her kindness is heartwarming. Johan says when he describes her that "she is caring and always makes sure everyone else is taken care of" and that is exactly my experience of her. Johan, on the other hand, is what you would see if you took a dictionary and looked up the word "calm". (Or if you google it, it's 2018 now...) He is ...

Sofiero bröllop
Mahgol & Alberto – Sofiero, Helsingborg – July 14th, 2018
In the middle of the very hot Swedish summer of 2018 I had a wedding in south of Sweden, in Helsingborg. After several weddings in a row where I almost fainted because of the heat we ended up with a normally fantastic Swedish summer day with 20-22 degrees celsius, which just felt perfect. I joined Mahgol and her crew at V Hotel in central Helsingborg around noon and the feeling was somewhat tensed, somewhat relaxed. The bride was nervous (perfectly normal, if you ask me), but the feeling all in all was that everything was all right and that we where heading towards a nice day. The guys had a great time at their room at the same time and I ...
