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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
