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.
Wedding coordinator: Anna Edström Widén with her assistant Astrid Westin from Rentalstories.

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 ...

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 ...

Parshin & Eric – Château la Durantie, France – July 24th, 2018
Fancy a French château wedding? Well, here it is. In the end of July, on a Tuesday, Parshin got her Eric at one of the most beautiful locations I've been to. Château la Durantie is probably a dream place for anyone at any moment – to just stand in front of it is a breathtaking experience. And inside there are so much history and fantastic details to enjoy. This is where Parshin and Eric had their preparations. Parshin with her bubbly bridesmaids in one part of the château and Eric in the other. Every detail was thought through. From the macarons, to the love letter and string quartet playing at the ceremony. Starting with a somewhat tra ...
