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.

Tara & Peter – New York – March 23rd, 2018
It was in the beginning of March. I got an email: "Can you film a wedding in New York March 23rd? I know it's short notice, but if you could, it would be awesome.". The email came from the wonderful Anna at Rentalstories and she was planning the rooftop wedding of Tara and Peter. "Can I film a wedding in New York?" Is that even a question? That's like the dream of dreams! So I didn't have the chance to get to know Tara and Peter before the wedding, like I usually want to do. I don't want to be a stranger showing up on peoples most important day in their life. But that's what happened this time. It didn't last for long, though. Peter was ...

Caroline & Joakim – Norrvikens Trädgårdar, Sweden – August 1st, 2018
So... This wedding was a true fairytale. Not even joking. And therefore the choice of music. It's just right. But let's start from the beginning. In the end of July I got an email. It basically said "We know this is a long shot, but we're getting married on Wednesday next week and our videographer can't make it. Is there any way you can?". And well, let's be honest, the timing was not the best. I was leaving for vacation in Germany the day after and I had just been away doing three weddings in one week. But of course I wanted to help them. So I said yes. And not until the day before the wedding everything was settled and I was so happy ...

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 ...
