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.

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 ...

Jelena & Nicola – Bari – June 9th, 2017
Jelena and Nicola, just wow. These two people know how to have a good time. Seriously. This wedding was fun from the first moment to the last one. In Sweden, where I'm from, weddings are often traditional - sometimes with a little twist - but still traditional. Well, maybe this wedding was traditional Italian style, but it was completely new to me. I loved how the band started playing directly after the first course - people were dancing, tossing the bride and groom in the air, how the basilica was beyond every other church in Sweden, how 1/3 of the wedding stopped at a gas station on the way from the ceremony to the reception to dance ...

Parshin & Eric – Château la Durantie, France – July 24th, 2018
Fancy a French château wedding? Well, here it is. In the end of July, on a Tuesday, Parshin got her Eric at one of the most beautiful locations I've been to. Château la Durantie is probably a dream place for anyone at any moment – to just stand in front of it is a breathtaking experience. And inside there are so much history and fantastic details to enjoy. This is where Parshin and Eric had their preparations. Parshin with her bubbly bridesmaids in one part of the château and Eric in the other. Every detail was thought through. From the macarons, to the love letter and string quartet playing at the ceremony. Starting with a somewhat tra ...
