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.

Parshin & Eric – Château la Durantie, France – July 24th, 2018
Fancy a French château wedding? Well, here it is. In the end of July, on a Tuesday, Parshin got her Eric at one of the most beautiful locations I've been to. Château la Durantie is probably a dream place for anyone at any moment – to just stand in front of it is a breathtaking experience. And inside there are so much history and fantastic details to enjoy. This is where Parshin and Eric had their preparations. Parshin with her bubbly bridesmaids in one part of the château and Eric in the other. Every detail was thought through. From the macarons, to the love letter and string quartet playing at the ceremony. Starting with a somewhat tra ...

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 ...

Frida & Hampus – Stockholm – June 9th, 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 com ...
