Servah & Carl – Winterviken, Stockholm – July 7th, 2018

Wedding films
30 oktober, 2018

This bubbly and fantastic person named Servah called me in the spring and asked if I could film her wedding. She had this energy that went right through the phone and into my heart. I could hear her excitement and how she just couldn’t wait to get married to her Carl.

Of course I was gonna film their wedding.

We started out at the classic Hotel Drottning Kristina in the absolute center of Stockholm. Outside there were lots and lots of people, all dressed in yellow and blue. It was the day that Sweden was gonna play England in the quarterfinal in the football World Cup. And I was missing it. Again. But what the heck. As soon as I went into the suite where Servah and her crew of family and friends was getting ready – all thoughts of football were gone. There were pulse. There were nervousness. There were laughters. There were tears. And there was this magical and energetic first look, where Servah were actually bouncing up and down while Carl entered the room. It’s true, just watch the video.

And then when I drove to Winterviken Garden, where the wedding was gonna take place, England scored their first goal. I got a little p*ssed (sorry), but I shook it of before the ceremony. And what a ceremony. Servah, with her Persian roots, and Carl, from Sweden. Two very different cultures in all and also in weddings. They managed to mix the two cultures together perfectly, with beautiful songs and lots of love, before they summed things up with lemonade and sweets after the ceremony.

Sweden lost and that was that. The World Cup was over.

But the wedding was far from over! The whole wedding party continued at Winterviken and that was where the real magic happened. I have never seen two cultures add up to one big love like this. When all the somewhat stiff Swedish (I’m allowed to say that, cause that how we Swedes are) were watching the dancing start immediately and then after a few minutes just jumped in and joined in the dance – I cried. It was so, so beautiful and I will never forget that moment for as long as I shall live.

Thank you, Servah and Carl, for showing everyone that love has no boundaries. For spreading your energy. For being you.

Tara & Peter – New York – March 23rd, 2018
It was in the beginning of March. I got an email: "Can you film a wedding in New York March 23rd? I know it's short notice, but if you could, it would be awesome.". The email came from the wonderful Anna at Rentalstories and she was planning the rooftop wedding of Tara and Peter. "Can I film a wedding in New York?" Is that even a question? That's like the dream of dreams! So I didn't have the chance to get to know Tara and Peter before the wedding, like I usually want to do. I don't want to be a stranger showing up on peoples most important day in their life. But that's what happened this time. It didn't last for long, though. Peter was ...

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 ...
