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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
