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 time. She wouldn’t let anyone step on her and use her kindness. The perfect mix in a person, I would say: be kind to other people, but not on the expense of being kind to yourself.

And on the other hand we have Douglas. The scot-swede with the somewhat macho outside, but oh so gentle inside. How well mannered he is and how he would never let Josefin stand alone. Well, actually, she stands very well alone, meaning she’s independent and they spend a lot of time apart, but she’s never lonely. He would do anything for her. A. Ny. Thing.

To be with them this day, to see their love for each other shared with their friends and family, which was very much a mix of different people – it was humbling. There were speeches with a lot of heart, there were speeches that rimed and speeches with laughter – all of them bringing tears to our eyes, cheeks and the floor. When we left the party we felt like we knew them, like we were a part of something bigger. And when I got the news only ten days later that one of the guests, very close to the groom, had past away a week after the wedding it was very hard. I cried because he was a good lad and I cried for the family that I got to know that weekend.

The feeling I will bring with me from this wedding is humbleness and hope and the words are these, from the grooms father: ”You are Scottish, not because you are born in Scotland, but because Scotland is born in you. And same goes here: You are our family, not because you are born in our family, but because our family is born in you.”.

And that might be one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.

Carin & Henrietta – Norrköping, Sweden – October 13th, 2018
From the day Henrietta booked me for their wedding, I knew this was gonna be a very special day. She told me a lot about her and Carin, about their personalities and their life together. So I went into this day knowing it would be relaxed and easy-going. But my expectations were outdone. From the moment I sat my foot in the hair saloon where both of them were getting ready (in separate parts, so they wouldn't see each other before their first look, how cute is that?) I felt like a friend with a camera. Meeting Carin, who I hadn't had any contact with before the wedding and feeling her warmth and nervousness about wearing a dress, something sh ...

Mathilda & Johnny – Österlen, Sweden – August 25th, 2018
Mathilda and Johnny. The wedding they through at Frideborg Österlen in August 2018 was absolute perfection. This was the day that had it all. Rain and sun. Laughter and tears. Calm and party. Teamwork and competition. Fantastic music performances. Beautiful clothes. Lots of portraits, lots of hugs, lots of beer, great flower work, amazing families and friends. Just everything. Mathilda and Johnny are the type of people that books you to your wedding and end up being your friend. The relaxed feeling that was present during this whole day made my job so very easy. I am so happy they choose to book me. Music: Saint Soulard – Pacing Over Th ...

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 ...
