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.

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 ...

Sarah & Simon – Rosenhanska Magasinet – August 19th, 2017
It's 2008 and I move to a new city to play handball. As my teammate I get a 17 year old girl named Sarah. I am 23 at the time, so we're not really at the same place in life. But still we are. She has a hard time figuring out who to be and how to be it. So do I. But in all of this we guide each other. I know she thinks that I was the one helping her, but she helped me as much. Some would say there was a blind leading a blind, but I chose to see it as that we took each others hands and took baby steps forwards in the dark, with only the light from a match to show us the way. I would call it brave. In 2009, I think it was, she met Simon. H ...

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 ...
