Tara & Peter – New York – March 23rd, 2018

Wedding films
8 maj, 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 all happy and, from what I could see, zero nervous and Tara had the support of her three wonderful sisters and the four of them took me in like true friends do.

During the day I learned much about them as individuals and also about their relation. It was a small, yet big wedding. Not many guests, but extra everything when it comes to the rest of it. I loved it. I could really tell that Tara and Peter are two smashing personalities that wants stuff to happen fast – yesterday if it was possible. So that they got married only six months after being a couple didn’t feel strange at all. Only like them. Like it suits them.

I think that, together with the tempo that characterizes New York, made this film what it is. Something completely different from everything I did before. Urban, pulse and high class.

There is so much more than this, when it comes to Tara and Peter and their wonderful families and friends. How Taras father really spoke to me during the evening, how the toastmaster Martin did his 13th(?) ”job” as a toastmaster and did it so firkin’ well. How all the kids were so well behaved, yet brought people to laughter. How Taras mother owned the dancefloor. How Taras younger sister Tanja spoke about Tara in her speech. How beautiful the singing was during the ceremony. But I can’t fit it all in here. It’s for Tara and Peter to watch in private, in the longer film.

But here is for the rest of you. Enjoy.

Wedding venue and reception: Kimpton Hotel Eventi.
Wedding officiant: Eva Engman.

Caroline & Joakim – Norrvikens Trädgårdar, Sweden – August 1st, 2018
So... This wedding was a true fairytale. Not even joking. And therefore the choice of music. It's just right. But let's start from the beginning. In the end of July I got an email. It basically said "We know this is a long shot, but we're getting married on Wednesday next week and our videographer can't make it. Is there any way you can?". And well, let's be honest, the timing was not the best. I was leaving for vacation in Germany the day after and I had just been away doing three weddings in one week. But of course I wanted to help them. So I said yes. And not until the day before the wedding everything was settled and I was so happy ...

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 ...

Jenny & Johan – Säfsen – January 27th, 2018
Jenny wrote to me just a few weeks before the wedding, not having very high hopes that I could film their wedding. But at least she wanted to ask, she wrote. But even with a short notice we made things happen and I am so glad we did! Jenny is fireworks. She is one of the most pure people I've met. Her laughter and her kindness is heartwarming. Johan says when he describes her that "she is caring and always makes sure everyone else is taken care of" and that is exactly my experience of her. Johan, on the other hand, is what you would see if you took a dictionary and looked up the word "calm". (Or if you google it, it's 2018 now...) He is ...
