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 officiant: Eva Engman.

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 ...

Gulistan & Maitham – Märsta – April 7th, 2018
Guli contacted me in August 2017 and wanted me to film their Kurdish-Arabic wedding. Since I have no boundaries I immediately said yes, despite the fact I knew nothing about traditional Kurdish or Arabic weddings. As the months went by and we arrived at wedding week I was actually panicking. Not that I would ever show it to the couple, but I was really nervous that I would mess things up, because that's what you often do the first time you do something. But no. The second I walked in the door at Gulis sisters neighbours house I felt like home. Nurcan, the sister, was so open, warm, supporting and welcoming and Gulistan showed close to z ...

Camilla & Albert – Marstrand – September 9th, 2017
My best friend, since almost 20 years, was about to get married. They HAD to have a wedding film, and I HAD to do it, but since I was one of her bridesmaids I couldn't film it. So what to do? Easy. One of my other best friend has assisted me on three weddings this year, so I handed over the recording part for her and then took care of the editing myself. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was not easy. Not at all. A friend you've done everything with, shared your toughest and happiest times with. To witness her and her husbands love for each other, a kind of relief to officially, in front of the whole world, be one anothers. To see her deep b ...
