Ida & Andreas – Västerås, Sweden – July 28th, 2018

14 januari, 2019

This is a story about a family from Västerås. Not just about a bride and groom, not just about two people in love, but about a solid, beautiful and warm unit with a mother, a father and two daughters.

Ida contacted me on Facebook almost one year before their wedding day. She was interested in having a videographer for their wedding, but she was very open with the groom needed to be ”worked” on before anything could be settled. The inquiry was ”only” for three hours, which I don’t book that far in advance, but the wedding was taking place in a city where I used to live, I was gonna have a lot of full day weddings around the date and I also got a very good feeling about the wedding from day one. So yeah. I would sign up. But first: work on the groom.

And yes, he needed som work.

Three months later Ida writes again. We want to book you! And at the same time she writes that one of my absolute favorite wedding photographers, Linda Eliasson, would be shooting as well. I was thrilled!

From that day and through the seven months up until the wedding day I followed Ida and her family on instagram, I followed the planning in a facebook group (not in a stalking kinda way, promise) and looking back on messenger and instagram I can see we wrote to each other many times about feelings, planning etc.

So when July 28th comes and I turn up at Vallby Friluftsmuseum just 1,5 hours before the ceremony starts I feel like I already know them. I feel like a friend with a camera. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the best feeling possible for me entering a wedding day. That makes me feel 100% relaxed and confident and that makes me the kind of videographer that lends her clothes for the bridesmaid when she needs something to dry her tears.

Meeting Ida and Andreas and their two beautiful daughters was so easy, because they are just so loving and warm with each other that it kinda leaks onto the people around them. In this case, for example, me. I was touched by how they looked at each other, touched, hugged and kissed. How the youngest daughter runs towards her dad to hug him like she hadn’t seen him for weeks, when they had only been apart for a few hours.

This love – I wish it for everyone.

So. This day. Short day for me, yet I felt so much. It was one of the hottest days of 2018 and the little chapel we were in for the ceremony had no air condition whatsoever, so the sweat game was real. And so was the waterworks. I cried. Linda cried. Everyone cried. It was lovely. The details, the music. Everything. And actually, to sum things up really good, the song in this video is the song they had as the first song at the ceremony.

The story of Backlunds has already generated two wonderful kids and a marriage as pure as life itself, but in my eyes it has only just begun. This story will last a lifetime and then yet another lifetime, because that’s how strong this unit is.

Thank you, Ida and Andreas, for letting me be a part of this. You are in my heart.

Josefin & Douglas – Glasgow – September 30th, 2017
What can I say... It Wass fall 2016, when Frida and I had a competition, were you could win us coming to your wedding. We were secretly hoping to get a fun and special wedding, maybe far up in Sweden. Something extra. Josefin entered the competition and we landed with a wedding in Scotland. My God, Scotland is a dream for almost everyone and we got it! During the year from the competition up until the wedding I got to know Josefin and she is the kind of woman you secretly envy. Not because she's breathtakingly beautiful (well, a little that too), but because she is both so freaking gently and kind and knows what she wants at the same ti ...

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 ...

Anna & Markus – Åhus – June 17th, 2017
Anna and Markus, a really stunning couple with good taste who loves to compete and challenge each other. That was what characterized their wedding day. This was the kind of wedding that was just laughing, playing, joking and dancing all day and night long. But even though the serious part was not shown as much as it is in some other weddings, I know it was there. I could see the thankfulness, the love, the humbleness through the laughs and the jokes. People who are alike and who just develops side by side and who never stops evolving. A really motivating set of people. The wedding was shot as a Due Film and Photography collaboration and yo ...
