Sarah & Simon – Rosenhanska Magasinet – August 19th, 2017

Wedding films
15 november, 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. He was a part of her making it through the tougher times and in to the lighter ones. Cause, believe me, Sarah is light. She is the brightest, clearest most joyful kind of light. Wherever she goes, she goes with a smile. Whatever she does, she does with a smile. It’s hard to not be impressed by her character.

And Simon. He is the perfect example of a mother-in-law-dream, as we say in Sweden. Ambitious, gentle, caring and yes, very competitive. Maybe the last part isn’t the dreamy part for every mother-in-law, but for me it is. He is confident and a real anchor when times get tough. So you see. They’re a perfect match. So it’s not really strange that their whole wedding weekend was a 100% success. Their families, their friends and relatives, they all gave everything to make this wedding to something more than just to people getting married. To the greatest gift a couple could get – see two families become one, see people unite in the church, during dinner, through the speeches, the cheers, the shots and through the massive party. Well, see for yourselves.

That I got to film their wedding is beyond words for me. It was an even more emotional weekend than I had thought it would be. I cried from when I saw Sarah getting ready until the last speech that night. And I even ended up giving a speech myself. And, of course, cried right through it.

So. I would call it brave, what we did, helping each other out, not really knowing where we were going and still today I see that little girl as my Mini, my sister. Even though we live miles apart. With great lives around us and in our hands. Who would have thought that nine years ago? I think we did good.

Sarah and Simon. You are goals. And I know you will live happily ever after, cause there are just no obstacles in the world you can’t beat if you fight it together.

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 ...

Isabella & Zahron – Tuscany, Italy – September 22nd, 2018
Isabella and Zahron had the most amazing wedding weekend at the fantastic Borgo Scopeto Relais, outside of Siena in Italy. This castle is the perfect place for a wedding and I feel humbled about having the chance to film a wedding here. Isabella, from Sweden, and Zahron, who grew up in Canada, met in Hong Kong, were they both lived and still live together. Their many friends from all over their world is their family in Hong Kong and you could really tell during the weekend that this is a very close group of people that really love each other and really knows how to party. The ceremony took place between the olive trees under the very ho ...

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 ...
