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.

Margaux & Christopher – Copenhagen – June 23rd, 2018
This day. Wow. I went with my assistant and friend Matilda to Copenhagen a warm summer day, knowing we were gonna miss Swedens game against Germany in World Cup (football). When Sweden finally made it to the World Cup we were gonna miss one of the games for a wedding in Denmark. Well. "Just suck it up" was everything we could say and we went over Öresundsbron, that connects Sweden and Denmark. Ok. We already knew that this wedding was gonna be fantastic. The connection with Margaux was so smooth and easy from day one and we felt so relaxed going, cause we know that they had chosen us specifically for our style. Matilda on video and me, ...

Åsa & Pontus – Örenäs Slott – June 24th, 2017
So, I got the question last year, from the best wedding coordinator in Sweden, if I was free on "Midsommar", which is Swedens most celebrated weekend during the summer. She was planning the wedding of a football player, playing for the National team of Sweden and his girlfriend and they wanted a videographer. I was so new, had only done one wedding when I got the question, so maybe I should have said no. This was about to be a big wedding. But "no" is not my thing. "Yes" is. A few months before the wedding, the groom wanted to make a film with his speech, cause he knew that he wouldn't be able to "hold it together" during the wedding recep ...

Mahgol & Alberto – Sofiero, Helsingborg – July 14th, 2018
In the middle of the very hot Swedish summer of 2018 I had a wedding in south of Sweden, in Helsingborg. After several weddings in a row where I almost fainted because of the heat we ended up with a normally fantastic Swedish summer day with 20-22 degrees celsius, which just felt perfect. I joined Mahgol and her crew at V Hotel in central Helsingborg around noon and the feeling was somewhat tensed, somewhat relaxed. The bride was nervous (perfectly normal, if you ask me), but the feeling all in all was that everything was all right and that we where heading towards a nice day. The guys had a great time at their room at the same time and I ...
